Happy Fall, y'all!

It's been so long since I've blogged I might need to introduce myself!!  Hello, my name is Jennifer and I've been a bad blogger.

I knew it had been a while when my mom, who can't even email, said, "You never blog anymore!" 

Yesterday was quite the family fun day around here.  We started out the day at the circus with Becca's soccer team.  Kind of an end of the season celebration.  With clowns.  (Have I ever mentioned that I dislike clowns?) 

Forgot my camera.  I did take one pic of a clown with my phone to send to my friend Chad.  To torment him really.  He likes clowns even less than I do.  But it didn't turn out very well, because 1) my phone doesn't take great pics, and 2) you didn't expect me to get very close, did you?

Next we went to 2, count 'em, 2!!  fall festivals.  Cause we are very into the candy family togetherness. 

Here's our little Clone trooper, Commander Rex (apparently the Leader of the Clone troopers, I'm being told right now.  This is from Star Wars, if you aren't in the know.)


And our Brazilian soccer player. 


This is also known as "doesn't really want to dress up but doesn't want to sacrifice the candy."  And no, she didn't have two buckets.  One is Hayes's. 

Here's my costume.


This is called "Mama doesn't do dress-up."  Besides, aren't big cocktail rings in?

The following pictures are known as "taking pictures in the car of kids hopped up on sugar."





There's my sweet girl.

And I'll end with a funny from Hayes.  (If you're a FB friend, sorry for the repeat.  But it's worth repeating.)

We were driving in from picking up our babysitter Friday night and I guess Hayes felt the need to let Shelby in on new stuff going on at our house.  He says, "We have a magician chicken on the door!"  People, it's a turkey with a pilgrim hat!  

Oh bless.  I just love that little guy.
