Congrats Jessica and Mitch!

Last weekend, after our crazy-fun party, we went to Springfield for my cousin Jessica's wedding reception. She and her husband Mitch got married in Las Vegas the week before, but had a reception for everyone back home. We had a great time getting to see the happy couple and also have a mini family reunion!

2nd Annual Haunted Halloween

Last Friday was out 2nd Annual Powers Halloween Party, and it was worth all of the work!!! I managed to get all of the costumes done in time, and got all the decorations up just in time for madness. Brian set up a haunted hayride (the kids loved it!), and we played lots of games and ate lots of food. Nana, Papaw and Aunt Emily got to come down for it, along with lots of other family and friends. I've already started planning next year!

I was so happy the dress got done in time!

I have the best man in the whole world! Dressed up as Rhett just for me :)

Me and Emily

Emily and Nana turned into witches!

The Mummy game got very CRAZY!!!!

The winning team: Kimmy, Blake and Kaity

Beautiful Kaylynn

Picking out prizes!

McWilliams Pumpkin Patch

Last Saturday we took the day to go out to the best place to be in the fall - the pumpkin patch! We are lucky to have a great one in West Plains, so off we went! We had a great time. The kids even got to participate in a pig scramble! Sooooo cute. Lots of apple cider and pumpkins later, off we were...till next fall!

Happy Birthday Chaise!

A few weeks ago we headed up to KC for my sweetie-pie nephew's 4th birthday. Brady and Chaise are really close together in age, so it's super cute whenever we're able to all get together. They had it at one of the "jumpy" places, so naturally the kids had a great time! We got to stay the night with them, so that made the trip so much more fun! Happy Birthday Chaise!!!

Sweet kids everywhere!
