One of my favorite childhood memories is tent making.  My little brother, sister and I used to make the most elaborate tent cities that covered the entire den.  We would sneak in dixie cups of water and goldfish for refreshments and we could play in there all day.  I thought it was time Olivia experienced some of the magic so I brushed off my skills and got to work.  She loved it.  She pretty much just liked running in and out of it, but she squealed and laughed the whole time. These are the moments I hope I never forget.

Saturday my Mom offered us tickets to the Alabama vs. Texas A&M game and to keep Olivia so we could enjoy a game kid free so we jumped on that offer!  I was sad to leave my little munchkin, but I knew she would be in good hands and probably have more fun with her Nana than she does with me ;)

We got to sit in the Zone with lots of free food and drinks!  It was a blowout game, the Tide won 59-0 and that's just the way I like it.  We had a couple of friends with us that we hadn't seen in a while so it was a lot of fun to catch up with them and get to watch a whole football game without sweet little interruptions.  We don't get a whole lot of alone time so I definitely cherished our day date!

Of course, Olivia didn't even miss us.  She would not even come to me when I went to pick her up.  She ran to Nana and told me "no" when I tried to get her!  Can you believe the nerve??  I am glad she loves her Nana though and that they had such a fun day together.

We had to skip church Sunday because someone has a snotty nose, again.  I really hope her little immune system kicks in soon.  She is feelin' fine besides the snot fountain so we decided to keep our date to Boo at the Zoo that night.  We met Brad, Abby and June for some mexican food and then went to the zoo.

June got a new tooth and wanted to share some of Olivia's chips, but I don't think she was into it.  I didn't want Olivia to wear her real costume until Halloween night so I whipped up these kitty ears, put on her kitty tights and vest and boom, you have a kitty!  They were so cute I had to make a head band for little Junie too, the girl loves her some kitties.  Sweet little friends.

Chad insisted we take a picture by the Pirates.  Poor guy has been a good sport this weekend with all of the picture taking I have been doing.  I just have to keep reminding him that we are making memories, he doesn't seem to care sometimes though ;)

The zoo was really fun, even if we didn't get to see any animals.  We enjoyed the haunted hayride and the train most of all!  Fun night with great friends.

We beat the Monday morning blues boo's with some yummy strawberry waffles, in tombstone shapes naturally, pumpkin cuties and boo-berries (never get's old).  I figure, it it the most important meal of the day, might as well be the most fun too.  
P.S. Don't judge my art...it tasted fabulous!

Have I mentioned that we weather has been aaahhh-maaazing here lately??  Little kitty and I have been enjoying as much time outside as possible.  We went on a walk today and I let her hold my hand and walk by herself on the big road. She was such a big girl and never even tried to pull her hand away.  She looked up at me with the sweetest little grin, so proud of herself for being so big.  We walked all the way to the end of the road and then momma got to carry both of us uphill home, but it was totally worth it.  

Happy Monday friends from my pig-tailed cutie!
