It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Orange Wednesday

Instead of opening on Thanksgiving this year, our outdoor mall near us decided to have a big event called Orange Wednesday the day before.  If you wore all orange, you could be stopped by a secret shopper and win a $25 gift card.  We won!!  You could also enter to win for some awesome prizes, including a few IPads.  We didn't win those, but we did win two free movie tickets to the new Hobbit movie!  We were pretty excited about that.  It was a fun evening with just Caleb and Joshua...we spent that free $25 gift card together and loved it!

A Sneak Peek...

My best friend Lisa took our pictures this fall and I got to see a few today!  They are awesome!  I can't wait to see more.

The Maids Thanksgiving

Because we are so busy during the holiday season at The Maids, we usually plan our Thanksgiving and Christmas parties around the craziness. This year we had a Thanksgiving breakfast before work started.  The kids and I worked on decorations and they helped cook.  We made pancakes, sausage, egg casserole, and provided lots of drink choices.  People wrote what they were thankful for on the leaves in the middle of the tables.  It was a great turnout!

Dog Park Fun

Bear loves to go to dog parks and run around like she is a greyhound.  We found this new one right by Engaged in Life Academy in Parkville.  We may be going after we drop Ashlyn and Joshua off at co-op now while it is still warm....she is slowly working on her social has been a slow process, but has made a few friends!
