Happy Halloween

Nemo, Dory and an Octopus...
Momma's costume.... llama socks

Hitting the neighborhood for Trick or Treating 

They even trick or treated at our own house... just to have Madison (the Octopus) answer the door

Finally it was time to come inside (to warm up) and to investigate their haul...

The smiles and memories are always the highlight of this evening for Momma (though the weeks and days leading up to it I know I can be quite a bear about the holiday). 
But the true highlight of the evening was when Lillian ran up with one of my favorite Halloween treats (mini banana taffy) and with tremendous enthusiasm said... and they are SOY- you can have them Momma (Anyone that that closely follows my journey knows that I have food and dietary restrictions which have often brought my Lillian to tears and frustration, so to see her sheer joy that there was something Momma could safely have and enjoy was just what this Momma needed) 

Until next year :)

Fall Break Shenanigans

It was the perfect stay-cation.
Filled with a mixture of adventures, friends, and lots of fun.

There were trips to the zoo...

 Including a train ride
Time with our favorite cowboys...

A bit of fall cleaning (Another Sparkle literalist... get up there and wipe off the table)

Adventures at Target...
Yes that is Cooper pushing Madison down the aisles...

 Movie marathons... sitting in our favorite spots
Cooper loves to climb in the bucket
 Dog sitting for the neighborhood
Learning to wink

And Band competitions to cheer on our favorite baritone
Whether we were in the stands
Or watching the live steam via candle light

Whatever we did, we did together. It has been a great two weeks.

Soccer Fun

Cooper decided he really wanted to play soccer this year and he had a great time.
His coach and teammates were very kind and he was excited to play and learn.

One of his favorite parts was the post game snacks :)

Here is what he requested for his game day team snack- Little Soccer Men were a huge hit!
