Fall is here!

Memorial Road had their fall festival for the kids tonight after church. All the little kids dress up for the evening and it's so fun to see them all in their cute little costumes. Baby M dressed up like a ladybug. I can't show you the pictures with her full face showing, but at least the pictures that usually get deleted can be used this way! Here she is in her ladybug costume in front of the picture prop. Yesterday I tried putting her hair up in doggie ears and this is the result. She loves her new Disney princess ball too!

Last week we went to Tulsa to visit Kendall and Avery and visited the pumpkin patch in Bixby. It's the same one I used to take Bailey, Avery & Madison to when we lived there and they were little. Baby M wasn't too crazy about sitting amongst the pumpkins!

Food, lots of food

It's been a long time since my last post and I've made a couple of trips to Dallas and visited the Oklahoma State Fair. I'm always amazed at all the different foods they have at the fair and how they can add even more calories to already fattening foods! I have to say the only thing I had was roasted corn at the fair, but some of these things looked really good!If you are really lazy, you can get your pizza on a stick!

Yum is what I have to say about funnel cakes!

So I went to Dallas with my sisters early in September and stayed at my cousin's house. She was a great hostess and made reservations for us at a cute tea room in Richardson, The Chocolate Angel. I didn't get pictures there, but they had an awesome grilled pimento cheese sandwich and served it with jelly - it was delicious! Then on Sunday we went to a restaurant called Rise, it is a souffle place and it was delicious! Here's some pics:

This is the caramel pecan or something like that! Heavenly!

This is the truffle mushroom that Jill & I split, it was wonderful.

And this is the cheese tray that you can choose several different kids of cheese to try from. It was an eating experience and so fun. I highly recommend Rise.

Then Bailey and I went down to Allen for a day and a half in late September for some retail therapy, an Allen football game and some great food. We ate at Buca di Beppo and had this -
Possibly the best pasta dish ever - It was called Pesto Basilica or something like that.
And this salad with Granny Smith apples, gorgonzola cheese, spiced walnuts and dried cranberries. Need I say more? Anybody want to go to Dallas for a food weekend??
