Enjoying The Fall Before Winter Arrives

*Missouri weather is pretty crazy. One day it's 80 degrees and the next it's 40 degrees. We had one day, in the middle of some cold days, where it was sunny and perfect for a trip to the park. Levi's park is a new park that just opened and the kids LOVED it! The park has a zipline...amazing!
*The cooler days usually look like this...snuggled up with my Oscar (the pups are right beside me on a blanket)
*We had Thanksgiving at my grandparents house. My older brother flew in from New Mexico so we all got together so we could do dinner together.
*We've been Christmas shopping and I've been itching to take down the fall decorations and put up all the Christmas decorations. Twinkly lights are my love language!

Hunting With Daddy

Earlier in the summer, Jason and his brother built a large blind so they could take the kids hunting and it would hide most of their movement and any noise they make.
Barrett LOVED going. He took his toy gun so he could shoot his own deer, which was so sweet!
Barrett fell asleep about an hour into their hunting adventure and Jason sent me this sweet picture.
He woke up and there were about 6 does eating in the field. Jason asked Barrett if he wanted to shoot the deer, so Barrett lined up his gun (his toy gun) and pulled the trigger and the deer heard the noise and all ran. He was so proud and he still says all the time "I shot a deer with my dad"
These two look adorable in camo and orange. Love them and the sweet memories they make together.

Random Cuteness

* We went to the mall to look for some outfits for family pictures (taken in two weeks) and these two were full of fun!
*Amelia has been bringing home books that SHE CAN READ! Y' is this possible?!
*Christmas present in the making. I'm using my Cricut a lot this year for gifts...I love it!
*"Go to the Pink Park said the Turkey." She is working on sounding out words and this was too cute...I could see how she put letters together to get the sound in the different words.
*Amelia requested that we get out the manger and the train so she could play with it one morning. It's the 7th of November, there are still pumpkin decorations out and we're playing with Christmas toys. Never a dull moment in this house!
*The time change has been hard on the pups. They like to go back to sleep as soon as they wake up.
*Oscar is always looking out the back window for something--he's constantly begging to go out. Sorry, Sweet Oscar. You're an inside kitty!
*The holiday fun starts this coming weekend with Thanksgiving with my dad's side of the family, hunting season and then getting Christmas decorations out!

Elephant Rocks: Annual Cousin Tradition

Last year we started a family tradition with all the cousins on my mom's side. We grew up together and we really want our little ones to grow up together. We are all close and we love getting together so an annual trip isn't too difficult.
Elephant Rocks is so beautiful this time of year and we always have a great time running around and exploring. We headed to Elephant Rocks yesterday and we had such a great time!
Love that we've made family a priority...they are pretty special in my book!

Halloween Night

We started out our night by going to a friend's house. Her house was full of Halloween decorations and enjoyed starting our night off there.
Once we left their house, we headed to Trunk-or Treat at our church. Our crew dressed up as Star Wars this year. So much fun doing this as a family...
We left the trunk-or-treat and headed to another party. The kids had fun stuff most of the evening so this was more for the adults! They had a great time at the adult party, but I didn't manage to get a picture of them. Bummer! 
That night we all went to bed was cold and stormy! I woke up to go to the bathroom and saw that Oscar was loving on Barrett. I know the picture is blurry but it's too sweet not to share!
Happy Halloween from the Conway Family!

Halloween Party In Kindergarten

Friday afternoon was Amelia's first school party. I can't believe my little girl is old enough to be having organized parties in kindergarten!
Cute spider hats...Amelia's spider had five eyes. I love how she doesn't follow anyone's lead. She makes her own path and she decided her spider needed more than two eyes.
Barrett got to go with me so he thought he was such a big boy--he loved it!
I can remember loving parties at school and I love watching her with her classmates and make some pretty great memories!

Fall Festivities

We carved pumpkins out at the farm while the boys were hunting. Hunting seems to take over everything this time of year but we were able to still get in some fun Halloween festivities.

A friend at Barrett's school invited him to a trunk-or-treat so we got to get our hands on some candy before Halloween. He was so excited to see her (and get a picture)
My sister always has a big Halloween party so this year, we attended. We are all Star Wars characters--Rey, Leia, Han Solo and Kylo Ren. The kids don't look very happy...they just walked through a haunted clubhouse and they were a little shook up #parentfail
Tuesday is Halloween and we are excited for a full evening of fun!!
