special delivery

A very important and magical box arrived today and the girls were beyond excited. Can you tell?

From the moment the first Halloween catalog arrived in our mailbox, they knew exactly what they wanted to be, and there hasn't been a moment of hesitation since.  I won't spill the beans yet, but let's just say, we are ALL about princesses around here, and these are two of the most well-known and loved. Here's a little sneak peak:

They cannot wait until Halloween comes, and I think I am going to have a hard time keeping them out of these dresses until then; in fact, they are dancing around the house in them as I type this!

The weather has been spectacular the past couple of days - we are loving it! Jonathan came home from work a little early yesterday, so we headed off in the golf cart to hang out at the park for awhile. We ran into J's brother, Michael, and two of his kids, Jackie and Seth. The girls were excited to see their cousins and play together in the beautiful, fall sunshine.

We left and went to grab some dinner, still enjoying the weather out on the patio at a local pizzeria. After dinner, we drove around the lake, stopping at the boat docks to watch the sunset and hit up yet another park. We bumped into more family....this time Grandma and Grandpa, out enjoying the beautiful evening. We headed home, tired and happy. Moving here has been so great for our family - we are truly happy and blessed.
