Five on Friday

Happy Friday!
Today I'm linking up with Christina, April and Natasha for Five on Friday!

My sister-in-law had a sign party last weekend and I made a super cute sign there. I had been wanting a welcome sign to hang next to our coat closet right as you walk into our house and I absolutely love the one I made. :-)

Jackson had his first music program at school last week and he did so good. The theme was Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes and they recited/sang over 40 rhymes. It was all the kindergarten classes at his school together and they all did great.
Jackson is on the very top row in the middle in the green and gray striped shirt.

I ordered this set for Jake and I to wear for Christmas this year from here. We LOVE Christmas Vacation and this was just too good to pass up. :-)
The Dad's Club at Jackson's school had their annual Casino Night this past weekend. We went with our neighbors across the street and had such a fun night.

While I was off work on Monday and editing pictures, Avery and Max were snuggled up on my bed watching t.v. and I couldn't help but snap a picture. :-)

I hope you all have a GREAT weekend. We will be hosting Thanksgiving tomorrow with Jake's side of the family so it will be a busy but fun weekend for us!

Halloween 2017

We had SO many different events for Halloween this year so I thought I'd try and get it all in one post with a few pictures from each event.

First of all, we did Boo at the Zoo which I already posted about here.

Next up was carving pumpkins with my side of the family on the Thursday night before Halloween.

The Saturday before Halloween, we had my Mother-In-Law's annual Halloween Party which was so much fun!

My niece and her boyfriend were also dressed as Wonder Woman and Superman, so we had to get a group picture. ;-)
My nieces Sophia and Bella. So cute!

The treat bags the friendly ghost left behind for all the kiddos.

And then that Sunday we had Trunk or Treat at Jackson's school!

Monday morning Avery had her Halloween Parade and Party at school.

Then Monday night Avery had her Halloween Party at Dance Class.

The afternoon of Halloween was Jackson's school Halloween Parade and Party.

And then finally Halloween night we went trick or treating. It was so much fun this year! We went with all of our neighborhood friends and my sister and her family came over to join us too.

Jackson and Avery each had 2 costumes this year. We had so many events that it was nice for them to have a choice for each. Jackson was Superman and a Skeleton and Avery was Twilight sparkle (My Little Pony) and Wonder Woman.

Avery really enjoyed getting so much candy. She just kept saying how much fun she was having, it was really cute. Jackson was up with his friends the whole night and he had a great time!

The cousins all ready for trick or treating.

My dad built a fire and passed out candy for us. :-)

Our house all decorated on Halloween night.

Five on Friday

Happy Friday!
Today I'm linking up with Christina, April and Natasha for Five on Friday!

Avery had her last soccer game of the season last week! It was such a fun first season of soccer for Avery. She got to play on the same team as her friend Aubrei from school and they both had so much fun playing together.

I took the kids over to my sister's house last week to meet their new cousin Addison! Avery was so excited and she held her a few times! She just kept rubbing her face up against Addison's and rubbing her soft hair. She'd say, "she's so cute" numerous times. It's the cutest thing ever to watch Avery with her baby cousin. She even covered her up when she thought she might be cold and said, "I think she needs her binkie" when Addison started to cry. Jackson was happy to see her, but didn't feel the need to hold her, ha. Such a difference between boys and girls. ;-)

A couple of weeks ago, Doc McStuffins and Hallie the Hippo were at Sky Zone near us. I knew Avery would love this so I decided to take her. She had a blast!

Last night we carved pumpkins and had a big fish fry at our house with my sister and her family, my aunt and uncle and my grandpa. It was such a fun night and I'll have to write a whole post about it, but in the meantime, I have to share this picture of Avery with her pumpkin that she and I carved. It's just too cute!

And now I'm just realizing that all of these pictures are of Avery. Jackson hasn't been super excited about taking pictures lately so I don't have many of him to share this week, but we did just get his Kindergarten School Picture back this week and it turned out pretty cute (except his hair wasn't fixed anymore by picture taking time that day). I just still can't believe he's in kindergarten and doing so well. We had parent/teacher conference with his teacher this week and she couldn't have been more proud and happy with how he's doing. He's come along way in just the first quarter and has learned so much and caught on so quick. It really is amazing. He's actually reading little books now and before school he didn't even know all of his letters! I'm just amazed and so proud of him. He loves to learn and that makes me so happy!

Have a great weekend!

Boo at the Zoo

On Jackson's actual birthday, this past Friday, we decided to take him and Avery to Boo at the Zoo that night. We went a couple years ago and it was a lot of fun, so we decided to go again. Our neighbors came along and it was so much fun!

There were all kinds of cool lights and decorations and the kids all dressed up in their costumes. It was a really fun night! My pictures aren't great because it was dark and I just brought my iPhone along, but I still wanted to document our fun night.

I had to share this video so you could see Avery dancing in the bubbles. Too cute!

Jackson and Andy with the Ghostbusters!
