Peach Tree Owl

Some of you know this already - but my sister-in-law (Addie) and I have started a little side business called Peach Tree Owl. What we do is a lot of home decorish kinda stuff but Addie also does some ornaments and metal baskets with decorative fabrics. That probably didn't make too much sense.... but if you want to see more of what we do just go check out our Peach Tree Owl blog! :)
We'd eventually like to start selling stuff on Etsy - we're just not there yet! A lot of what we do is custom orders - so if you see something you like - but want a different color - we can do that - and if you see something you like the looks of - but want a different quote or Bible verse - we can do that too! Anyway - no pressure - just wanted to make sure our friends and family knew we were doing this!! :)
Here are some pictures from our first "craft show":

Just another fall day...

H-A-double L-O-W- double E-N spells HALLOWEEN!!

First of all can we talk about the fact that - to this day - I can't spell Halloween without singing that song "H - A - double L - O - W - double E - N spells Halloween! If you went to Britt Elementary I know you just sang that as you read it - don't lie!! :) It's probably partly because I can't spell - but seriously - it's catchy! :)
ANYWAY... the week before Halloween was kinda crazy. Harrison spiked a pretty nice fever - but continued to act completely normal (which thankfully ruled out the flu). However - due to the fever he wasn't allowed to go to school - so Corey and I took turns staying home with him. Luckily nothing really ever came of the fever and after about 4 days it finally broke. All that to say that by the time Halloween rolled around on Saturday - Corey and I were exhausted! We took Harrison to Mimi and G's neighborhood - where they had their annual costume parade - and pizza party at the club house. After pizza it was raining- so we only went to a couple of houses before we took Harrison back to Mimi and G's for a nice warm bath! I'm pretty sure Corey and I went to bed right after Harrison that night!! haha - I know... we're lame!!
I know you're shocked - Harrison was Thomas

Caught in the act! As Harrison says he was eating his "trick-or-treat"

A day at the "farm"...

Every year we go to a family friend's "farm" - it's not actually a farm farm - it's a tree farm - but we call it "the farm" so just go with it. They have tons of land - hayrides - tons of food - a bonfire - and this year they had live music! It's always really fun - and this year Harrison had a blast too because there was a big sand box for the kids - BOO!! Harrison thought it was the best thing ever... he kept trying to sneak his way back over there... and finally we just gave up and let him play in it! I'm pretty sure he came home with about 10 lbs of sand! Anyway - here are some pictures!
Having a blast playing in the sand...
Harrison and Bailey playing with the little tractor!
It's a little blurry but can't you see the joy in both of their eyes! :) haha!

Brittoni always snaps the cutest pictures!!
(these are actually all her pictures that I stole - thanks Brittoni :) haha)
Harrison and I on the hayride!
