Angelina Ballerina!

Today at ballet, the sweet little ballerinas got to wear their Halloween costumes!  Hallie was so excited.  Of course, she also changed her mind about 10 times as to what she would actually be for Halloween!  Ha!  I suppose that's in true girl fashion, right?  She finally decided on Angelina Ballerina...and an adorable Angelina Ballerina she was!  Of course, I forgot my camera, but I was able to snap a few pictures with my phone.  I think the cuteness is done justice. :o)

Hallie's ballet/tap class

TCA Fall Festival

 Two weekends ago, we got to go to Hallie's fall festival at her school.  Hallie's class was in charge of the "Digging for Treasure" booth.  It was an absolute hit--I didn't get many pictures of it because we were so busy with it.  The ones below are taken before the festival started. :o)  Hallie was such a big girl.  She got her tickets (courtesy of Rah-Rah...then Mommy had to buy her a few more) and walked from game to game like she knew what she was doing.  So cute!  She had a blast!

Digging for Treasure!

Stuffed Animal Walk (so cute!)

Hallie won!  She was SO excited!

Go fish!  This always reminds me of my mom and the carnival booth she always had! :o)

She really wanted to get her face painted...she loved it!

Cake Walk!

Oh my goodness!  She won! :o)

What a wonderful way to end a fun day...in a brand spanking new bed!  Thanks, Nonna and Pop!  Doesn't she look tiny in this bed?!

Heart of Texas Fair!

It's that time of year again!  Time for the Heart of Texas Fair and Rodeo.  We don't really care so much about the rodeo part (gasp), but the fair...we're in!  They started setting up earlier in the week and Hallie noticed immediately.  We were hoping the weather would be a little cooler, but it was still pretty hot when we went at 4 pm.  Hallie walked in, let me snap a picture and wanted to go straight to the ferris wheel--I do believe it's her favorite!  We got some tokens and a wristband for Hallie and took off.  We had a fun afternoon at the fair.  Hallie got to experience a few firsts--her first rollercoaster by herself and her first time playing around in a bubble!  Ha!  We already can't wait for next year's fair! :o)

First picture of the adventure! 

She has one thing on her mind...getting to that ferris wheel!

While waiting in line, Hallie entertained passersby by dancing with her shadow! :o)

Love that face!

Hallie's first solo rollercoaster ride!

Such a silly goose!

This little "exhibit" was right when you first go into the fair...so the entire time (after the ferris wheel) we were at the fair, Hallie talked about riding in the bubble.  Lol.  We weren't sure she'd be brave enough for it, but she certainly proved us wrong.  She had a BALL! :o)

Our sweetie pie!
