Gobblins and Ghosts and Witches! OH MY!

It's the wicked witch of Greensboro! Thought I'd tell you all about my Halloween fun!

When are we going trick or treating!!!?

Here I am with my neighbor friends getting ready to go - these girls are pros at this so I thought I'd tag along with them.

With my Elmo basket and my witch hat on, I was ready to get the trick or treating started! I was very eager to go to each house and get some candy, I even tried to walk in a few houses. I wouldn't let anyone put any candy in my bucket, I preferred to do it myself!

Here I am with Daddy hurrying to the next house! And seeing all the kids dressed up was cool too! There were lots of princesses and supermans.

"Mom can I eat this now?"

Like I mentioned before, no one was gonna get their hands on my Elmo bucket or my candy!

We did run into a few somewhat scary creatures, like this guy. He decorated his entire garage like a haunted mansion! Still, I saw the candy and had Daddy take me in.

The best part was getting to enjoy some of my candy! The suckers were my favorite! Don't worry Mommy and Daddy only let me have one.

Man, theses things are good!

Halloween was lots of fun! (especially getting lots of candy!)

Random times with Miss Mackey

Look what we found in our backyard!!! A TURTLE!! Mommy and Daddy don't know how it got there since our yard is fenced in. And no we didn't keep it, Mommy says 2 dogs and a fish are plenty animals! We did take the turtle back down to the creek and left him there. At first I was scared to touch him but during our walk to the creek, I carried him close to me without dropping him.

As you can see by the excitement on Dixie's face, she loves to be tortured by me! I love to take her bones and treats and hide them. Then when she walks away, I pull on her tail. Poor Dixie didn't know life was so good until I came along!

Mommy and Daddy are going to the Notre Dame vs. Carolina game this weekend! Daddy is unbelievably excited! He can't stop talking about it! So Daddy, this is for the fighting Irish - We're # 1!!!!!!!!

Bur-Mil Park

Here we are yesterday spending the day at Bur-Mil Park. We had a big picnic and went for a long walk around the park. In this picture, I'm walking out on a fishing dock.

Daddy points out the fish to me.

Then we went to the playground - which I might add is always my favorite! I love the swings!

I was jumping off the ground to get to the slides!

Here I go down this big slide all by myself!!!

After a long day here, I was ready to go! I fell asleep quickly in the car.

Blowing Rock

We went to Blowing Rock this past weekend! It's a new tradition for us to go the first weekend in October. My Gammy and PawPaw joined us. We went shopping at the Tanger outlets for clothes for me. Then we went to eat at Nathanial Boone Inn. It was soooo delicious. It's like family style! They bring everything out at once and you eat as much as you like. I ate sooo much!

My Daddy and I. He's growing out his beard so he looks a little different - he says it brings luck for the fighting Irish! Go Notre Dame!

Here's Mommy and me.

Mommy and I sharing some laughs. Apparently she thinks it's hilarious when I sound like a frog.

The Little Gym

I Love the Gym!

The Next Olympic Gymnist?

I started my Little Gym classes on September 3rd. Mommy and I go every Wednesday. We do things there like ringing bells, singing, jumping on mats, swinging on bars, walking on balance beams, play with bubbles and just enjoy being a growing toddler.

Here are my classmates. That's my teacher standing in the black shirt.

Here I am with Gabriella, I was showing her how big girls jump off the mats.

Don't try this at home.

They call me Smiley Rylee because they say I giggle and smile a lot. I'm just a happy girl!

I was putting on a show for my class - showing them how to dance, clap and jump on this mat.

See me in the pink? This is called parachuting. All the kids get in and the Mommys walk us around for a ride then slowly lift us in the air. It's pretty fun, I was the first to jump in.

Bye Bye Monkey

What do Monkeys say?

Zoo Fun

Kisses to all my family & friends!

I'm such a happy girl!


I saw lots of animals at the zoo! Mommy jumped in and stood right beside this guy to get his picture! (no not really)

Mom, Dad and me posing after lunch!

How do I look in these shades?

Mommy and I loved the Polar Bear! Doesn't he look sweet?

All these animals are making me tired!

See the 2 yellow frogs?

Here kitty kitty kitty kitty....

Daddy - what are those!?


Another favorite of mine were the elephants!

I call this a puppy, Mommy and Daddy call it a giraffe, whatever that means!

What in the world is that?
