two fairies, a good witch, and Cleopatra

On Halloween, the girls spent the better part of the afternoon decorating our yard for Halloween. We already had some spooky ghouls, spider webs, and pumpkins out, but they wanted more and they did it for the most part all on their own. Julia added a sign post with directions to the "White ghost yard", the "skull yard", the "vampire yard" and other scary places. Perhaps the best one though was the poor scooter flung haphazardly on its side, buried with leaves. The girls are standing in front of a sign that tells of the "Legend of the bad crash of the scooter: 200 years ago thear was a famos scoter rider that was riding a scoter in a grave yard then a ghost showd up and made a huge crash hapen then the famos scoter rider was killed." R.I.P. scooter rider.


We took our annual trip to the farm for a hay ride and pumpkin picking and we had an especially good time this year. During the pig races, Julia got picked out of a large crowd to be the representative for our section of seats, which was the "Yellow Team." There were four sections and four corresponding pigs and Julia's little pig won the race! The prize was a pig nose, which she wore proudly. She was a very excited little girl to be chosen out of such a large crowd.
Our girls are starting to become good friends. (When they're not fighting) The other night, the girls were fighting over who got to sit next to Natalie so they compromised and both sat close to her. They kept trying to get Natalie to make her famous scrunched up "face" and, as you can see, they were successful. We have some funny little girls.
