As many of you know, I am super busy planning a huge fundraiser for the Junior League of NWA, Winter Dreams Tour of Homes. Its just around the corner, December 6th!

And each week on Kirstens blog she is posting a sneak peek at her moms house. I want you all to go check it out. It is so original and just amazing. I can't wait to see it in person!

Winter Dreams Paints the Horse!

As you guys know if you read my blog, I am chairing a fundraiser for the Junior League of NWA called Winter Dreams Tour of Homes. Winter Dreams will have 11 homes featured around NWA that you can buy tickets to tour. They are going to be beautifully decorated by each homeowner. It is about one month from today...December 6th to be exact. Lots of work has been done, but one of the most fun things so far was painting the horse at the Northwest Arkansas Florist.

Everyone who lives in this area KNOWS this gets repainted every month to advertise different events. We painted it BRIGHT green, with black and red....thanks to all the girls who came out and helped...we really did have fun...what do you think..did it turn out cute or what!!?

Just an FYI if you live around are $20 and the money helps to support our community work...I can get you a ticket if you are interested!

Halloween Weekend Pictures!

Holidays around here are never celebrated just one have to drag the festivities out as long as possible! So my Halloween fun started on Thursday night with an awesome Girls Night Out! We all went to Las Fajitas to enjoy some Mexican food. We had so much fun there that we ended up at the most random place ever..."Boomers" for some dancing! It was the most fun I've had in a long time. Lots of laughing! Love my friends! We have the best times together!!

Here we are at Las Fajitas!

Rachel and I!
Me and my bestie, Amber!

Here we are outstide the restaurant and ready to head for some dancing!! Fun times!!
Our neighborhood always does lots of fun stuff for Halloween. So Friday night we met our friends, Chris and Marcy, and their two boys at the club for dinner. They had haunted houses set up so the kids played in those for a while (minus Maddox, he was too scared!). And then we took them on a haunted hay ride through the golf course. It sounded like a good idea at the time, but I may have made a mistake taking a 2 year old. Maddox buried his head in my lap the entire time! Wooops!!!

Cruz and I before the hayride!

Kristian, Maddox, and Nikolaus on the hay ride Earlier in the week we carved pumpkins with my friend Amber and her 3 kiddos! Here are pics from that night:

Here is Maddox and the Hutchinson kids after carving pumpkins!

For Halloween, Maddox was a Banana, Cruz was a Monkey. They had a blast trick or treating! Maddox was so excited to get candy and Cruz kept clapping his hands! They were SOOOOO cute!

Here is Maddox after getting a piece of candy!

Here are the boys...sorry for the blurry so hard to get a shot of them! they are both constantly on the move!My lil monkey...with pink eye:(Cruz got to eat one piece of candy....a 3 was a huge hit! He wanted lots more!!Maddox could have cared less about the actual candy. His first pick out of the candy he collected was pretzels! Followed by a popcorn ball...weird! I always want the sugar!

Hope everyone else had a great Halloween! Thanks for stopping by!
