We had a great Fall Break spending time in Missouri with my family. I got to enjoy several of my favorite things, and the weather was beautiful! We made some fun Halloween treats, played games, had a hayride and roasted marshmallows. It was a nice break from the norm, and it was fun having everyone all together to enjoy the festivities! It could only have been better if Kevin could have been there with us. Sorry for the excessive pictures, I had too many to upload one by one. Also, this is my first Windows slide show, and I couldn't figure out how to cut off the music. So, you can pause it after it says Happy Halloween unless you want stare at a blank screen and listen to Monster Mash! It's only an excessive 6:40 instead of 8:49!

2 huge pink princess cowgirl hats..........$20
2 pink plaid western shirts............$45
1 pair of cowgirl boots.....................$22
1 pair of hand-me-down boots......(thank heavens)
The feeling of being an adequate mother that actually remembered it was farm day, dressed her children accordingly and even remembered to send them with a sack lunch.........PRICELESS!
Notice that Skylar had to have her shirt tied in a knot over a tank before she would agree to wear it. She wanted the boots and hat, but wasn't sure about the shirt. She now loves it and can't wait to wear it again.
Yes, I know this is a little outrageous, however, they have dress up days about once a month and we usually do not participate because I forget or don't have time to creatively get something together. So, I decided that surely I can come up with something westernish. Not as easy as I thought, but we managed. Seriously, we live in Oklahoma, you would think that finding little girls cowgirl attire would be a simple thing. I must just not know where to look. Anyway, they LOVE their cowgirl clothes and you will be seeing many posts of them in these farm clothes as they WILL be getting good use of them this fall season. We may be declaring farm day at least once a week for the next couple of months.
