Maxwell has been working on spoon feeding, and you would never believe it after looking at this picture, but he is doing pretty good!

Line Him Up

Maxwell had his first haircut today at Follicle in the Third Ward. He joined Daddy and me and was very intrigued when we were in the chair. When his turn came around though it was a different story. He sat nicely on Daddy's lap, but he repeatedly pushed and shoved Marco's hands away while screaming in protest. We were going to have him buzzed, but after the battle he emerged with clean lines and a trim on top! We'll consider it a win for everyone!

Look who got dancer of the month in my mini company class! My teacher, Ms. Lindsay, chose me for my dedication, teamwork, and commitment.

Baby Shark

Maxwell was pretty bummed that he didn't get to join us for trick-or-treating on Sunday thanks to pink eye. The few days of rest made him more than ready as he headed over to Newcastle Place, a retirement community near our house today, for a little trick-or-treating of his own. His baby shark alter ego was on full display as he marched around gathering almost as much candy as we did. Impressive for a one year old! He enjoyed himself so much so that he didn't even want to take his costume off for the ride home.

We took part in the annual trick-or-treat/birthday celebration bash again this year with some neighborhood friends. I was a death trooper from Star Wars, and Lily was a unicorn along with a few of her friends. Lily and Maggie shared a cake this year and stuck with the unicorn theme. My cake was a mushroom from Mario Brothers. We definitely keep one upping our cake choices each year, but Mom is always up for the challenge.

Three Little Pumpkins

Today was the all important pumpkin carving day. This year's designs: a Minecraft Creeper, a unicorn, and a traditional jack-o-lantern. We did our part scooping out all of the seeds, Max did his part falling into the bowl of seeds, and Pop Pops and Daddy did the carving. Mom even made pumpkin seeds this year...YUMMY!

Company Harvest Party

Tonight I celebrated with my dance company at our annual Harvest Party. There were arts and crafts and even a haunted house - my favorite!

Happy Fall Y'All

Maxwell had another first today...jumping in a pile of leaves! He wasn't so sure about the crunchy leaves, but he loved everything else about the warm fall day!

My Girl Scout Troop had a little Go-See-It event today up at Flying S Ranch in Grafton. If you can't tell from the pictures we got to go horseback riding. We were able to groom, tack, and handle the horses. My particular horse was named Fancy which was a perfect name! We also took some time to make a lucky horseshoe craft. I'm pretty sure I have a new favorite activity!!!

Cub Scout Fall Campout - Menomonee Park

Rain or shine, the Cub Scouts are always prepared, and we proved ourselves yet again by camping in the rain. The whole family was going to join me for this excursion, but the rain kept Max and Dad at home. Mom, Lily, and I toughed it out though hiking, cooking dinner, making s'mores, and tying knots. Luckily we didn't have any intention of spending the night, but we stayed well past dark and had a blast!
