"This is the GROSSEST THING EVER!!!" Was the exclaimation Madeline made as she put her hand into a pumpking for the first time. Rebekah on the other hand had a blast digging in. I did not know how readily Rebekah would take to the whole trick or treating thing but she quickly understood that if she sees a bag it will have candy in it. Well, she began going up to everyone who had a bag, which was pretty much EVERYONE holding out her hand. We had a wonderful night visiting our old church home, Wedgwood Baptist Church, at their fall festival. I had a great time seeing friends I had not seen in a long time. Madeline chose to be a Princess, go figure, and Rebekah,who had not choice in the matter, was a leapord. Thank you Ellen Abshire for the hand me down costumes.

Madeline got it into her head a while back that she wanted to get her hair cut and donate her hair to Locks of Love. We had to wait for several months while she grew her hair out. I was very frustrated becasue when we first started planning for this Locks of Love hair length requirement was 8 inches, then 9 inches and now 1O inches so we had to continually push back the hair cut. WELL, finally today was the day. We made the appointment on Monday and every day Madeline would say several times, "I wish today was the day to get my hair cut." She was so excited and really likes her new hair cut.

Rebekah had her first "real" haircut today as well. The mullet haircut I gave her a few months back is GONE GONE GONE. She just sat there and did not move at all. I was so proud of her.

The GREAT Pumpkin search of 2009. We found a place here in town a few years back that sells pumpkins from Kelly's home town and the self proclaimed pumpkin capital of the world, FLOYDADA, TX. Rebekah simply loved wandering around saying "orng, eat orng" and patting every pumpkin she came to. Madeline went running through the patch finding the perfect pumpkin over and over again. We settled on 3 and will be carving them up 2 days before halloween.
