Posing and Pumpkin Painting

Katie had pumpkin patch day at school last week. 
We found this cute dress at Sam's. 
After Halloween I will take off the little Jack-O-Lantern and replace it with something else. 

The best news is that she let me put her hair in pig tails! 
She keeps telling me she's too old for pig tails! 
OK 4 year old.
She wanted to dance during our photo shoot:

On Sunday after church I had my Senior girls Sunday School class over to paint pumpkins and have pizza. 
(look! I painted that wall AGAIN! 6th time in 4 years!)

This is my 6th year to do this and it's always so much fun!

I really love these girls. I have had them in 9th, 10th and now 12th grade. I will miss them next year!

And I am going to have to pray about my feelings for Texas A&M, because lots of them want to go there.
I even helped Heather create the right color of maroon for her. So I am changing my ways.

They all made the cutest pumpkins!  
Some of them studied Pinterest before they came over.
I told them the first year I hosted this 6 years ago 3 of the girls made Jonas Brothers pumpkins!

All the girls...and Matt with his pig pumpkin.
Matt is dating my friend, Julie. She works in our youth department. 
I know Matt's mom from Golightly's and I love her tons. I knew Julie and Matt would be the perfect fit for each other, so I set them up last year. 
Maybe I will get to be the flower girl in their wedding one day?!

Look, Beach Barbie and Ken. 

I'm having fun with fall, but I am getting super excited about decorating for Christmas!

I am OBSESSED with the black and white wall. I miss my striped bedroom wall. I totally want a B&W striped wall! And I want a tour of your house!
