For Halloween this year, we had a horse-crazy little girl who wanted to be a horse, and a big sister who decided to be a cowgirl. I thought we were going to wind up with Daphne from Scooby-Doo, and a horse (which was a little bit weird), but I was trying not to be a Halloween costume control-freak and let them decide. Anyway, Lilly decided on her own she wanted to be a cowgirl, so I was very excited to make her a cowgirl costume.

The 5th & 6th grade boys at our church were all cowboys and we thought it would be a cute picture. Lilly has decided to be "nervous" in pictures now--especially with big boys, so this is the face I usually get now. Hopefully it will pass SOON.

Julie and I had a Groupon & decided to take our girls to the Hermitage one day. I was not thinking they would have that much fun, but Lilly absolutely loved it and has been asking when we are going back. She loved the headphones and the guided tour they had for kids to listen to. She was really sad when we were done and there were no more numbers to punch into her little player.

Highlight of Mamie's day--seeing the big horses.

And four very tired girls after walking all over the grounds.
