Homecoming Week

This week is Homecoming for Northwest Rankin, which means everyday the girls are to dress up as something different. I had no idea daycare's show their school spirit too so yes, both girls have a dress up schedule this week.
Anyways, today is Superhero for Nat and crazy hair/socks for Harper. (I was totally gonna let H rock some bed head, because believe me, that morning 'do is C.R.A.Z.Y.) Nat was a little hesitant to dress up. I wanted to go all out, full-on pink ninja turtle costume but we settled for a girly t shirt and tutu.

This pretty much sums up our morning and trying to get everyone out the door. One is always a grump and one is fairly content. Worst case, they are both grumps and I'm not sure both have ever been happy :)
Tomorrow is mismatch day. We'll see if my little OCD 5 year old actually goes through with wearing clothes that don't match. 


Pumpkin Painting

We finally made some time to get into the Fall/Halloween spirit. We met up with some other moms and kids in the neighborhood for a pumpkin painting party. Nat had been talking about it all week. We were suppose to do it Monday but the storms changed our plans.

Harper couldn't believe I was going to let her paint on something that wasn't paper. My favorite saying to both girls (especially at Harper's age) is... "We ONLY paint, color, mark, on paper".  Pretty sure Natalie went to preschool telling all the other kids this..lol

Check out that concentration.


I Spy

Two goobers who have been digging through my racks in the sewing room :)  This just happens to be what both girls will be for Halloween, but those costumes will be much fancier...of course.


MS State Fair

Natalie was out of school for fall break yesterday and today. I don't work on Monday's and I thought she might enjoy the fair. We haven't been since she was Harper's age, she didn't even remember it. I was little worried that she wouldn't want to ride the rides boy was I WRONG! We took Kaylee (our neighbor's daughter) with us. Those two had a blast. Natalie rode everything, no fear or hesitation. I tried to keep up but the Zero Gravity Tilt-a-whirl thing about did me in.

First up were the swings. Nat loves to swing, and it's even better when you don't have to push yourself!

This was just an obstacle course. Nat wasn't to impressed with those. 

This one was just about did us both in. It was so jerky and Natalie didn't care for that. We had to take a seat for a minute after it, at least until she saw the rollarcoaster.
 Hands down, their fav was the water slide. They rode it 3 times before I drug them away.

Surprisingly, Natalie didn't care for this. I'm not sure why but I believe the harness was riding up and giving her a very uncomfortable wedgie.


My Little Fashionista

She dressed, and evidently accessorized herself yesterday while I was at the craft fair. Byron did change her pants before they came out but he couldn't tame the hair..lol   He handed her over with a pony tail holder in her pocket.


Dancing Girls

Maybe it's a girl thing, or maybe mine are just obsessed. But if/when there's music on my two are going to be shakin' their booties to whatever beat is playing.

Sometimes it's on the table, sometimes clothing is optional.  I hope these work.


Hula Girl

Natalie found this in the bottom of one of my drawers and I couldn't get it on her fast enough. I think we bought this on our honeymoon. She's totally going to regret this picture when she's older ;)
