Tucker's class party
Tucker's preschool had a "Cowboy" day, and everyone dressed up as cowboys and girls. He was so proud to be dressed up like Woody - his favorite part were his work boots!
Lana's class party
The whole first grade had Pajama Day.
They spent an hour in the morning traveling from classroom to classroom, listening to a different story being read by every teacher.
Then they came back to their classroom for our party.
I am ever so grateful to Dan for working so hard and being willing to make crazy sacrifices so that I can do this. Being Mommy to this girl is the greatest gift of my life, and I am so very thankful that I get to be there for all of the special things like this.
We had fun stations set up all around the room for the kids to visit: a snack making station, a weighing with candy corn station, a measuring with candy corn station, a necklace making station, an estimating station, and more. So much fun!
Mrs. Moorhead's shirt was so precious:
You can't scare me. I'm a TEACHER.
This year we made bags of Pumpkin Poop for all of their friends at school. :)
Trick or Treating
I'm certain I have the most adorable cowgirl and Spiderman ever in the history of the world.
This is the first year they haven't wanted me coordinate their costumes-
they both had very strong opinions about what they wanted to dress up as,
so we went with it.
Dan & I dressed up in honor of the scariest thing we can think of: the Tide!
How adorable are Tucker & Olivia?!
Lana & Pudd
Dan's fam came for the fun again this year:
We went to our church's trunk or treat -
here they're waiting patiently for candy from Bob the Builder.
Train ride with one of our sweet students, Ryan
We had a reptile exhibit this year - wow!
cute dressed up cousins
Lana couldn't wait to get back to the bull ride this year!
and we were so proud when Tucker climbed up!
Lana was not happy about him taking a ride - she was literally in tears because she was afraid he was going to fall off. She was reassured when Pudd stayed close to him.
his expression says it ALL:
Our pastor, dressed up in true Duck Dynasty style! Love it!
Lana was also thrilled about riding the horses:
And this may have been our favorite stop of the night -
the baseball throw, where they would clock your speed.
Lana clocked in around 25 mph,
while Tucker just cozied up to the candy man:
And his night was made when he got to help his favorite buddy Josh pick up the baseballs:
Halloween 2012, in the books.
