Hi my fellow bloggers. I feel like I have been away from the blog world for a while now. Life here in our house is busy, busy, busy. There is so much going in with Halainah's birthday and my grandmother and my job search and keeping Halainah entertained. We are trying to get in as much outside time in now before it gets too cold. Although it has been pretty darn cold in our neck of the woods for this time of year. I can't ever remember digging out my down jacket, putting the feather blanket on the bed and lighting our pellet stove in the month of October. I sure hope that doesn't mean we are going to have the coldest winter in history. Halainah hates being inside and will go to the door, turn the handle and say, "side" for outside. She's going to be sad in winter. I am going to have to stock up on crafty things to keep her occupied.

Halainah's invitations are finally out in the mail and have arrived or should be arriving shortly. Stay tuned for a really heart touching story that goes along with her invitations and a digital version in the next few days. The menu will be chosen this week. And hopefully I will find a clown that does face painting and balloon animals by tomorrow. I found one on Craigslist but am hesitant on hiring her. So if you know of any good clowns in my area...please let me know. Elmo is already booked...can't wait to see Halainah's reaction.

Below are some pics. from this weekend. Can Halainah be the next Gap kid or what? I LOVE her legwarmers that I purchased there. In fact I am totally addicted to legwarmers. I bought 2 pairs...the other pair are not as wild...but oh so cute. Gap happens to make the best quality legwarmers at least I think so. I bought a pair in target but they were of terrible quality. I may have to go back to the Gap and get her the matching vest or sweater:) Oh and they have the cutest furry boots...I have been dreaming of those too!

Enjoy the pics of my Gap girl.

Totally cute! I love the leg warmers. All the cute girls clothes!

I love the colors on her.

We too are having unseasonably cold weather in MO. Tomorrow it is suppose to get up to 75 though, so outside we go getting the yard done before it gets cold again.
