On Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday morning you can go outside early in the morning and see at least 10 balloons in the sky. Then on Saturday night main street is closed for the Balloon Festival. Balloonist from all over some set up, tons of vendors set up booths, and it's a great night to walk up and down the street. We saw all our friends, ate some delicious kettle corn and just had a really fun night as a family. The balloonist have a count down and all light up their balloons at the same time. It was so awesome!
On Sunday morning I had gotten all the girls ready for church, and I was upstairs drying my hair. All of a sudden I heard a really loud noise and knew it was the flame of a hot air balloon... but it was way to close! So i ran outside onto the deck that's outside my bedroom and saw this!! A balloon was having trouble and had to land pretty much in our neighbors front yard! The girls were freaking out, so I let them run over there and watch the balloon be deflated.
Katelyn has been running with a team called "Girls on the Run" after school on Mondays and Wednesday getting ready for a 5K. November 6th was the big day! Her cousin, Jordyn, ran the race with her.
This was before the race.
Annie wanted to run in a race too, so we signed her up for the 1 miler. Her cousin, Kamryn, ran it too.
The starting line for Annie's 1 mile. She was SO nervous!!! It was so cute.
I was so proud of her... she worked really hard and totally ditched Kamryn and Katelyn.

(I seriously didn't get a picture of the finished product... lame i know!)
the girls' friends helped dig out the guts.
We've collected a lot of costumes over the years so for the trunk-o-treat annie decided to be a vampire.
(those are her real eyelashes... amazing!)
Alexis thought everything was too scary, so she wouldn't dress up. I did end up putting some make-up on her, but she never saw herself! and yes, i dressed up for about an hour, then the wings and halo had to go... no laughing!
treats i made for a party. they actually tasted pretty darn good!
we had a great time watching the girls play soccer this season. it was a little crazy having 3 of them play, but they really enjoyed it. Katelyn's team ended up taking 1st place. we won't talk about what place annie's team took! haha we were really impressed with annie though... she's always just wanted to take dance and wouldn't try sports. and let's be honest, i kinda thought she might have the coordination of the aunt she's exactly like!! but come to find out, she is VERY athletic. she picked up the game very quickly and did a really good job. samantha's team was hilarious to watch. just picture a herd of sheep running around!
