The day after...

Our church had its first Harvest Fest last night. A few words to describe it: fun, success, joyful, candy, candy, candy.

This is the first year we have let the kids dress up. I wanted to make their costumes so we brainstormed ideas and came up with the perfect idea for each girl. Peyton asked for her costume specifically. She couldn't decide between a princess and a ballerina so we merged those two ideas into one. And Laila asked for her costume as well. I, of course, chose Mika's. They were all quite cute and had fun helping me put together their costumes.

Let me introduce:
Princess Peyton the Ballerina


 Old School Mika (thank you, Peyton, for naming her costume)

I loaded up Princess Peyton the Ballerina, RoboLaila and Old School Mika and headed to the fest. I was working the crafts booth so the girls and I were there the whole time. Needless to say, the had a blast and we came home with three buckets FULL of candy.

For a while, the girls thought we would have all of these fun games at church every week. Ha!

We were all exhausted when we got home and went straight to bed.

But there were three buckets of candy awaiting the girls this morning when they got up. After I allowed them one piece each they decided it was "so much fun" to play with the candy.

There have been piles sorted and piles counted and buckets filled and dumped and filled and dumped.

And I'm afraid in all of their candy sorting fun there have been a few casualties. I noticed Mika was being awfully quiet so I looked at her candy pile she was playing with. This is what I discovered....

You can bet we will be heading to the playground at Chick-Fil-A today to burn off some sugar energy. It is all worth it because last night couldn't have gone better. It was a perfect day and perfect evening. Hello November!!!
