Time out!!

Paxton slams his water bottle down! I repeatedly told him to pick it up and he refused. I thought I would try time-out. This is about how it went....
... But then I asked him if he was ready to pick his cup up. He said yes and that was it.

Trunk or Treat

Our friend Mariam invited us and the Oaks' to go to Trunk or Treat at Grace Church in Fort Smith. The kids had a great time! They played games, threw pie in someone's face, saw a firetruck, and Beau was excited about the Star Wars characters.
Yes, we are aware that there will be hundred's of little "Frozen" characters but that is what our girls wanted to be. They are our most favorite, most beautiful Elsa's!
We tried to get a picture of Elsa, Elsa, Olaf, and Sven but the boys weren't having it and there was a couple that just kept laughing at us trying. lol! Cora and I made the boys costumes.
Olaf, Sven, a cowboy, an indian, Captain America, Elsa, and Elsa.

Leadership night

Piper had her leadership night at school. This was hanging up outside her door. I love seeing the things they have been learning about!
Did we mention that Piper won a coloring contest? All of the 1st grader's had to decorate a dog for Halloween. It had to have lots of detail which we know Piper is great at! Out of all the 1st grader's she got 1st place!!! Our neighbor Allysa got 2nd and we thought that was awesome!
Her little book report on "The Little Engine Who Could". This girl is a smarty pants!
Oh and here's Pax just making himself at home!

No school!

We were out of school last Friday. Piper and Mackenzie stayed with the Farris girls Thursday night. They had so much fun!! I'm thankful for all these sweet girls!!
Then Friday we met some friends at the park. I really have the best friends! Love time with them!
Then Pax took a great nap. Piper and I snuggled and watched a movie. She almost fell asleep on me.😴
What a great day out of school!

Pumpkins

We did our annual pumpkin painting and watching "It's a Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown."
I love making memories with my family! Paxton was more interested in mowing than painting and I was very glad of that! We also had our Halloween music going as we painted...

We got to see a firetruck my sweet class loved it!
I snuck Pax out of his class because I knew he would love it!

We had Piper's parent/teacher conference yesterday and we are so proud!! She had a 102, a 99, and the rest were 100's on her progress report. She is also reading at a 3rd grade level. Mrs. Efurd also told us that she gives her harder math problems than anyone else and Piper just gets it. We are beyond amazed! This girl is a hard worker.
They have different jobs at school. Piper's is to read the lunch menu out loud. Mrs. Efurd has helped Piper out so much with her being so shy! Piper even sang a funny song to her class on her birthday. I couldn't believe my shy Piper did that. Piper also has a job to help some of the kids pronounce words when they are reading if they need help.
Paxton loves Mrs. Jessica and Mrs. Angela. Everyday in the car I tell him how much I miss him. He will tell me everyone's names including his teachers. He does great until he sees me then he throws a big fit. When we are outside I am holding him the whole time. I don't mind it at all. :)
