What's in the box?

What might be in the overly HUGE box that is sitting on my kitchen table?

See its size compared to a glass from the cupboard.

See its size compared to a package of crackers.....

See what looks to be lots and lots and lots of that same type of cracker....

See what's in the box. Crackers. Crackers. Crackers. Nana wanted to make sure that Olivia had a lifetime suppy for her lunches. We LOVE Cracker Barrel crackers!!!!

Smart Girl!

I forgot to write about this when it happened..... so better late than never!

We were so proud of Olivia at the end of this grading period. She brought home a spectacular report card. I am happy to see that she is doing well and working hard in the grade that I love! I am looking forward to watching her mind and confidence grow throughout the year. Great job Miss Olivia!

All A's

Since trick or treating started so early, we decided to have a fun, festive, and fast dinner. We ordered a Jack-o-lantern pizza from Papa Murphy's. It was cute, and Olivia loved having the special dinner treat before the real fun began. (After only eating salads, veggies, fruit, and meat for the past few weeks- Michael and I enjoyed it too!)

We graduated from the Disney costumes this year. I still put my foot down when it came to choosing the outfit. I want to keep her young, sweet, and cute as long as I can. I thought her Geisha outfit was perfect. The Asian umbrella is authentic and was given to me when I was a little girl. I can't believe something this old has lasted this long. Olivia thought it was perfect as a finishing touch.

Notice the fancy make-up!
