Halloween Fun!

Just a few pic's of the fun we have been having to celebrate Halloween. First, we went to Kai's preschool Halloween party where the girls carved a pumpkin, did a cake walk, and art projects. We made fun cupcakes for the cake walk of spiders and mummy's (sorry, forgot to take pic's, but they were SO cute).
A couple weeks ago we made the haunted ginger bread house and that is always fun, but now that Tyler is getting older, I love to see her creativity and she can really do so much of it on her own now. She designed exactly how she wanted the house to look and of course Kai was a big help too! It turned out so cute. I may need to venture out this year and make/design our own ginger bread house for Christmas.
Then we made the adorable glass jar lanterns that are pictured near the bottom, and they just loved doing this fun project and the lanterns are so adorable. They have lights in them and glow at night when the lights are off.
And last, but not least we did our annual pumpkin carving yesterday. This is always so anticipated by the girls and this year did not disappoint! Austin's pumpkin was amazing as usual. He did a haunted house and the pic's don't do this jack o lantern justice, the details are amazing. Kai helped Austin do the haunted house and Tyler and I did the owl sitting on the fence, which turned out cute too. We are excited to go trick or treating next week when "Nazi trick or treating Mom" comes out in full force... trick or treat until you drop is my motto (It's hereditary, all Gregory's are the same way), but the girls love it.
Happy Halloween!

Pumpkin Patch

I took Kai to the Pumpkin Patch for a field trip with her preschool class. This is our favorite field trip of the year, we love the pumpkin patch! We get to go on a hay ride, go through a hay maze, pet some animals, and pick our own pumpkin from the patch, that is Kai's favorite part! Here are a few pic's from our day.

Kai LOVED this baby cow. She loved letting the cow suck on her fingers like it was getting milk.

This is Kai and her cousin Blaze.

This was her perfect pumpkin, although a little too heavy for her to pick up! She was so proud of her pumpkin and couldn't wait to how her sister and Dad.

Tyler is Student of the Month!

Tyler was determined by her teacher as being student of the month for the 1st grade class for the character trait of attentiveness!

This is what Tyler's teacher wrote about her:

"Tyler has been chosen as our student of the month for the character trait of attentiveness! Tyler consistently demonstrates attentiveness by looking at the teacher, following directions and always listening to her teachers. Tyler is a respectful child and model for others to follow."

She was presented with a medal and certificate at school Friday, and the pictures are below. She was SO happy and excited to get this award, and we are proud parents of such an amazing 1st grader and daughter! Tyler is such a good girl and is always trying to please other people and do her very best at everything she does. We just love her to pieces!
