The Montessori does Wacky Hair/Hat Day instead of costumes (really much easier for everyone)

Happy Halloween from the Macks of Oz!

This was our first year making Jack-O-Lanterns. The girls designed them online and I printed out a stencil and carved them. They were very forgiving when they were not exactly what they designed. These girls are the Best! Maya Ruth designed the one on the right. The pumpkins are both girls.
I thought they would enjoy scooping out the goop inside - not so much. :)

Mimi got in on the fun as the Wicked Witch. The girls dressed as Dorothy and Glenda the Good Witch. I dressed as Aunt Em- I am waiting for a friend to email a picture of all of us. I will post it asap. Here are a few for now:

Maya Ruth's 5th B'day Slumber Party

Mimi and I took Maya, Lucy, and three close girlfriends to the Rodeo. It was the finals so we saw the best of the best. We saw bare back bronco riding, calf roaping, goat roaping, cowgirls, steer wrestling, and the queen of the Rodeo's corranation. The girls LOVED IT! They got to pet a horse. They got to see all the cowboys and cowgirls all dressed in their finest. It was quite a show!

Then we went back to Mimi's where she gave the girls pani-pedis and then Irene painted everyone's face. The girl's got to decorate their own cupcakes. Maya opened her gifts- a book and a vet set with a stuffed puppy and then they played with her new toy for a bit.

Mimi told them a few stories about my grandfather and his life on his farm. Then the girls went to sleep. Big girls in one room,

Lucy in the livingroom with me-

Maya Ruth bunked with her very best friend.

Mimi in all her grandbaby glory.

In the morning we made special pancakes.
