We have 2 huge oak trees that haven't lost their leaves yet, but somehow our entire yard is FULL of leaves. Ella Tate loves to play in them and hear them crunch! Now this is how you spend a Sunday afternoon!

We went over to play with Turner and Mary Elizabeth one day last week. Ella Tate loves playing in their big playroom with all of their toys!
Playing on the patio is one of Ella Tate's most favorite ways to spend the afternoon!

Trick-or-Treat, give me something good to eat!

This year we made several stops at friend's and family's houses for Ella Tate to "trick-or-treat"! She got lots of goodies including, candy, a teddy bear, a Halloween balloon, books and even money! We started the festivities around 2 at GranGran and Poppa's and ended the evening at the Guthrie's about 9. Ella Tate was exhausted by the time we got home, but she had a great Halloween!
