We went to the beach with Nana, my brother, Shawn, KK, and Ethan the last weekend in September to enjoy the last weekend of Summer. We had a great little townhouse a block from the beach. The kids had a great time and so did the grown-ups! The weather was perfect! We even surprised Gracie with a dinner at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville restaurant (she LOVES him... See June post to check out her rendition of Buffet's "Fins") There were pirates on stilts who made balloon hats and parrots. The walls and ceiling were painted to look like treasure maps, and there were boat booths and a cargo plane was hanging right over our table. When the song Margaritaville came on, a disco ball with an attached salt shaker came down out of the plane. It was alot of fun, and the food was good. ((I had SUCH a hard time narrowing down which pictures to post. Maybe I'll randomly post some of the others when I get a chance, but for now please forgive my indulgence... and there is a video that is 3 and a half minutes. I understand if you're not interested, (but I want in on the blog for the kids to see someday. For some reason, I can't figure to how to copy it to disk from computer, so... I tried to upload it and after 20 minutes loading, it said there was an error. I'll try again tomorrow...)

Welcome to the land of Oz!
Gracie/Dorothy turned 4 on October 11th. She has been obsessed with the movie for over a year. She wanted to have an Oz party, so I obliged. I made a yellow brick road to cover the LONG sidewalk leading up to the house (we had the party at my BFF's house. They have a great screened in porch) There was a sign by the doorbell that quoted the one in the movie about knocking because the doorbell is broken. Below is Dorothy beside the Pin the Heart on the Tin Man game. It turned out really cute!
Aww... Harrison was here too, but I couldn't get him to stand still long enough to get a pic.

Here are some pictures from our trip to the Pumpkin Patch in mid-October.
"Is this a pumpkin... or a BALL!!!!"
Harrison walked around throwing his little pumpkin and saying, "Ball!"
Can someone say GRUMPY?
(I don't know exactly what caused this meltdown, but it was a good one. After 20 minutes, she was fine thanks to Aunt KK!)

Happy Trick-or-Treat to everyone!
We went to Old Navy in our costumes the Saturday before with Corie (cousin). Any child in costume got a free t-shirt.
For trick-or-treating, we met up at Ally's house around the corner with some of the girls from our local group to eat and go out in the 'hood together. The girls are all growing so quickly. They had a great time as always. Below are Leah (Rosetta the Fairy) and Gracie ready to go in the wagon.
