Cake eating contest???

IMG_4934

So I look over and these two sweet princesses are eating cake like they are in a contest! They both giggled at each other and I couldn't help but laugh too. So instead of stopping them I took a picture.

What a great weekend we had. The weather was beautiful. Dan and I took over 200 pictures on Sat alone and probably just as many on Sunday. I had such a hard time picking photos for this post since there were so many great ones. I was going to post about our whole weekend but since I wanted to include so many pictures I will just stick to Saturday.

We started our Saturday watching William's Football game. After the game we went to the pumpkin patch with Dan's cousin Bill and his family. We also meet up with Bill's wife Nancy's family. Katie had a great time since she had so many kids to run around with. We took a hayride to the pumpkin patch. Katie had a great time looking until she found the perfect pumpkin. Then I decided I was going to pick out a pumpkin for myself.....well just as I looked down to pick a pumpkin I noticed a little tiny ladybug on the pumpkin's stem. I called for Dan to take a picture of the ladybug and realized this pumpkin was not for me but for baby sister. So we got a pumpkin for baby sister.

After the pumpkin patch we went to Maddie and CJ's birthday party. Karen, Kevin, and family are one of the families from our adoption group. I know I have mentioned before how wonderful our adoption group is and how lucky we are to have such a great group of friends who are like family to us. Katie quickly changed into her Belle princess dress and joined the rest of her "Princess Posse" for the party. MA(aka Kate) and PA(aka Dan)PARAZZI enjoyed taking photo's of all the kids. Happy Birthday Maddie and CJ. Thanks for allowing us to be a part of your day!

Then we headed back to Dan's cousin Bill's house for William's birthday party. Off with the Belle dress and back into regular clothes for Katie. We helped celebrate William's 6th Birthday! Happy Birthday William!
