Goodbye October

Time to say so long to October, get the Halloween decorations packed up, box up the soccer gear and move forward into November.  To say that October was a blur is an understatement.  Between PTA and school commitments, Tom's work travels, soccer times 2, piano, choir, homework, science projects and so much more it flew by.  But before it is too far in the distance I wanted to document a few highlights and favorite photos from the month. 
This trip to the the Olympic National Park with Tom's Aunt Joanne and Uncle Phil deserved a blog post all to itself but got lost in the shuffle.  I took a ton of fun photos on the beach and in the amazing rain forests.  Super fun trip!!!

The sweetest birthday card ever from Nora. 
"Roses are red, Violets are blue
You are so sweet, I love you"
Nora and I have enjoyed a few early morning coffe/homework dates when Madison goes to her  choir club before school.  A nice time to bond and catch up as Nora really misses all of the one-on-one time she used to get with me before starting full-day school this year.
 Playdates haven't been as common this fall with all our activities but we have squeezed a few in.  Bella and Nora played a full game of chess all on their own:-)
 A bit of a failed attempt at skeleton gingerbread men.  But they still tasted delish!
 The paparazzi was out in full force for the last soccer game of the year.
 A fun first grade field trip to the pumpkin patch.
 Wacky hair day at school

We went to the park with the girls' best buds.  They had a great time feeding the ducks and playing with the leaves and I got some really fun candid shots with the bff's that I think will make for some adorable Christmas gifts to each of them.

Yes, it has been crazy. Thank you so much for taking the time to help us catch up. It helps a lot when we are too far away and too tied up in our own busy whirl.
