Field Trip!

One of my goal this year was to go to most of the field trips. Last year I didn't go to many because my work time was limited with Reese only in part time preschool. I have been to a handful of them so far, each girl's has had at least one per month if not two! Today I went with the Kindergarten to Home Depot. We took a tour, planted a plant and picked out the class tree.

They gave the thumbs up on the tree. :)

I got a new camera (finally! Mine was older than Abby) on black Friday, it is a Nikon Coolpix. It was a steal with my Staples Ink Rewards check on top of the sale price! I was long over due. I had to use my fingernail to open the lens and it just didn't take good pictures any more. They can only be dropped sooooo many times! This was the first use and I am happy so far, especially for 70$!!! Hopefully it will give me more reasons to blog. :D

Too Much Halloween...

We had way too much fun this year...I couldn't wait for Monday to actually come! Halloween for us started Thursday and it did. not. stop!

We are in pj's here because the pumpkin wasn't officially done until after trick or treating! So busy....

Trunk or Treat at school Thursday, complete with hayrides! They went with Granny and Grandaddy, had too much fun.

Friday Morning parade at school, this is Reese's Super Senior....they are both supposed to be Pocahontas. This picture is awful but with my phone.

Abby was Cleopatra, they both loved this costume. I got it last year half off after Halloween and they got it for Christmas. They took turns wearing it. I didn't have to buy any costumes, we have so much dress up!

On Friday night we went to a "Halloween Spooktacular." It was our first costume party ever and we had such a great time. Kane is supposed to be Justin Beiber, which was so fun and hilarious. I am a flapper, I had feathers in my hair and false eyelashes...also a first. This is my grandmothers costume from a dance competition she was once in. She made it herself, I had to alter it a little bit but it was too much fun!

This was Sunday, we went to a friend's party, Reese is Red riding hood...also from the sale last year. It was a great time! My girls love a party and are always the last to leave!

This was their actual Halloween night costumes. Trick or treating was so much fun this year, they actually got it I think and wanted to go to more houses. Usually they are fine with the hayride around the neighborhood and Granny's house but they wanted to do a few more on the ride home. It was a very fun night. They were disappointed when we got home and didn't have any "customers!" Our street doesn't get any traffic and it was late by then. Maybe next year! :)

Some Sewing

One of the many things that I have been doing (instead of blogging) is sewing. A lot. And most of the time I forget a picture, so here is what I did capture on my cell phone camera. My battery has been dead for a month at least, and it really doesn't take good pictures anyway....
This is a Lillian, Children's Corner with a grosgrain ruffle down the center of a wide ribbon.

Doll dress to match

This was eventually a boys longall, but I forgot the final picture.

This is a Children's corner "Paulie". Elephant here

None of these were for my family of course. I really don't have time to sew for them right now, which is very unfortunate because I have som much fabric that I bought with good intentions! Maybe next week. ;)

Happy Thanksgiving from the Wright Girls!

I know...I have fallen down on the job. I am so sorry and will try to do better. ;) I have to blame it on busyness, some days I don't know whether I am coming or going. Some days I crash into bed thinking of all the things I accomplished that day and think I need a vacation! And a clone. Kane says I try to do too many things but I don't see how I can leave anything out. Except maybe the training for a half marathon ;) I really had no idea it would be so time consuming, I almost there so c'est la vie!

So my blogging schedule, or lack there of, isn't because life is boring here in Wright country. I will try to catch you up soon. For now, a few pictures from this week.

The girl's school had their annual Turkey Trot with races and relay races for each grade. I volunteered in her class last week to make these fun shirts, I love Abby's. I had to tear her away from it, she loves painting and art. She was not as interested in the actual Trot as she was chasing boys around the field when it wasn't race time. She thinks racing is boring. She is my social child. She did want a turkey trophy, but who wouldn't want one! I had to explain that there were only 3 and she didn't care. Kane had to coerce her around the track, it was a half mile. She wanted to walk. Haha

The kindergarten comes out to watch the race so we saw Reeser too. She wasn't very compliant for the picture...or telling her sister "good job." I just can't make her be nice. It's going to bite her in the butt soon and maybe she will change her tune.

We had her Kindergarten Thanksgiving feast at night this year so that all the families could join. Here is her pillowcase Indian costume. It was a rough night, so hard to get a whole family there on a weeknight by 5:20? It lasted until 7pm which is our bedtime here...I am glad I don't have to do it again. I will say it was tasty! Pinewood families can cook! But of course Reese wouldn't eat anything and was terrible. Abby on the other hand ate an enormous amount of food, got seconds and then had a plate piled high with every kind of dessert. I seriously don't know where she puts it all. I see a growth spurt in her future.

How 'bout Reese's dress? It's actually Abby's dress, but they do wear the exact same size. She loves that dress, she is so prissy and particular about fashion and primping. I don't know where she gets that from. LOL, seriously it is my fault. She learned by watching me...but does she have to point out every time that I am not wearing make up? Apparently I don't look pretty without it. It sort of offends her if we are in public and I am not wearing any. She is gonna be something as a teenager.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families...


The Wright Girls
