Fall Fun at the Reindeer Farm

Saturday we wrapped up and drove out to Palmer to the reindeer farm for the last day of their Fall festival event. It has snowed the day before so everything was dusted in white and it was pretty chilly but we had a lot of fun. We went with another family from church and we all enjoyed some time together.

There were pony rides, a hay ride, bon fires, hay maze, games and of course we got to pet and feed the reindeer. So much fun!

Ethan and his friend Josiah had a blast on the hay bales.

First Snow

Last week we babysat for a friend so she could pack for their move out of state and now they are gone. :( But we had a lovely couple days with a baby around the house. The boys were a big help in holding and entertaining her. They actually fought over who's turn it was to hold her. :)

Hey look! I finally got a turn! :)

This week the weather has turned colder.  There are still some trees with leaves hanging on but for the most part the trees are bare.
We met up at the park for a bit with another friend and her little guy on Wednesday.

This morning we woke up to the first snow of the season! Is this the year we'll get to experience a "real Alaskan winter"? I don't know but we're hoping so!

Hats of Hope

A couple of my ladies in my Lilla Rose facebook group have come up with this wonderful idea and I am so excited to be a part of it!

We are going to be donating 12 beautiful knit hats along with a mini flexi clip to twelve children in the Pensacola Children's Hospital.

My friend Tracy (She was a recent hostess of mine) has ordered 12 gorgeous hats and I will offer mini clips from my inventory for 50% off. So for $21 you can cover the cost of a new hat and clip for a child fighting the battle with cancer and give them some encouragement as cooler weather comes our way.

Our goal is 12 but we don't have to stop there! Who wants to be a part? I'm really excited about this!

A couple ways you can be a join in...

1. Sponsor a complete hat and clip for $21 by sending a check or paypal.
(paypal address is: missylovsjesus@yahoo.com)

2. Give what you can. Any amount helps!

3. If you would like to pick out your own mini flexi for the hats you can order one online and have it shipped to me. Let me know it's coming in the comments below! :) Shop at http://www.lillarose.biz/melissagill

4. Share about this fundraiser. You are welcome to take either picture in this post and share about the fundraiser on FB or Twitter.
