Go Stella!

Each year, Stella's church preschool hosts a fall festival for the community. They always put on a fantastic event! This year, they had an inflatable ball jumping course that Stella was determined to conquer. It took her several times, but she finally got across... in a dress no less!

Cinderella & Grandma Kaye

Grandma Kaye has come down to Lexington for a visit! We've all been looking forward to her arrival for a while now! While here, Grandma was able to see Stella dress-up as Cinderella for her preschool Fall Party.

I just love the top-left picture of Stella with her eyes closed, thoroughly enjoying her pumpkin cookie. This kid takes after her mom!

King Porter

This year for Fall Festival, Stella decided she wanted to dress as Cinderella. Porter had planned to dress as a Stars Wars character, but Stella asked him if he would instead dress as her Prince Charming. Porter replied, "I won't dress as your Prince Charming, but I would go as your king." Stella happily agreed, and King Porter was born!

Porter the King

The picture above shows Porter sporting his king costume we just received from Amazon. He also has a shiny new sword on the way!

Kite Flying with Porter

Porter gets really into kite flying, as you can see from his face below:

Check out the video below of Daddy and Porter getting the kite airborne at Jacobson Park in Lexington:

Pipe-Cleaner Power Bracelets

Stella got a hold of the pipe-cleaners today, and made "power bracelets." I'm not exactly sure what these bracelets do, but I'm sure I don't want to find out!

The Underwear Bandit

Somewhere along the way, Stella got it in her head that bandits wear masks... made of underwear! I'm not exaggerating, she wears underwear on her head all the time. I try to not cramp her style, but I do insist that she only wears clean pairs!

The elements used in this digital scrapbook creation can be found in Meghan Mullens "Hello Deer" design kit.

Sidewalk Chalk Princess

Stella goes through a 48-count pack of Crayola sidewalk chalk faster than anyone I know! It's hard to keep her well-stocked, but hopefully, this new pack will get her through the rest of fall!

Cutie-Corn Crusader

Stella has been very clear with us, she does not have a unicorn, she has a CUTIE-CORN! No other name will do!

Best Breakfast Ever

Here's the face of a baby girl getting to take home an unbelievably cute and fluffy unicorn from... of all places... Cracker Barrel (and it was only $10)!!!

Cove Springs Park

With today's beautiful weather, we revisited Cove Springs Park in Frankfort, Kentucky. We had a great time!

Daddy & Stella at Cove Springs

We enjoyed a long enough walk through the park that we actually wore the kids out... at least for an hour or two!

Cinderella Stella

Stella's Cinderella costume came in the mail today. I think she's going to be the belle of the ball!
