High Five for Friday (9.18.15)

1. My mom made all of my sister's and my Halloween costumes. Sara and I dressed as a wide variety of animals, cartoon characters like Tweedledee and Tweedledum, jesters, genies, flappers, vampires, angels, and celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley. We received compliments at nearly every house we visited while trick-or-treating.

My mom taught me how to sew when I was in middle school, and while I know how to use my sewing machine, my skills pale in comparison to hers. (Not to mention the fact that I don't enjoy sewing at all.) I could never sew Halloween costumes for my kids, but I can shop Amazon and use my Prime membership to have adorable costumes delivered right to my front door. This week our themed Halloween costumes arrived in the mail…here's a little teaser!

2. After the last two seasons of city league soccer didn't live up to his expectations, Will asked us if he could play in a different league. Tom and I agreed, and a few weeks ago Will joined a more intense and higher level soccer program. His first game took place last Saturday morning, and he had an incredible time. (It helped that his team won and he scored a goal...which I unfortunately missed because I had to leave early to take Hallie to Nutcracker rehearsal.) I LOVE watching him play soccer.

3. When not watching Will play soccer, I thoroughly enjoyed watching these two run laps around the field. Why yes, Hallie is running laps in her leotard, tights, and dance boots.

4. After Monday's commentary on the Texas foods we've grown to love, this picture made me laugh...not only is it funny, it's pretty darn accurate.

5. Happiness Highlights:
These two cuties started pre-k and 2/3 preschool
earlier this week. They are spitting images of their
parents - Lily is a mini-Sara and Carter is a mini-Jeff.
On game days in Aggieland, everyone 1) drives a maroon pick-
up truck, and 2) transports passengers in their truck beds. Here
are two examples, and we saw at least six more last Saturday. 
Last Saturday Hallie sat outside and "drank tea" (spooned water
into her mouth) for 40 minutes straight. I love to watch her play
with Will and her friends, but I also appreciate how at peace she
is when playing by herself.
$5 on Amazon, baby. Saturday night is movie night!
This little pipsqueak's hair is finally long enough for pig-tails again!
And last but not least, my future Aggie #1...
…and future Aggie #2.
 Happy Friday, friends!

Linking up with High Five for Friday!
