Happy Halloween and a blast from the past

We all met up at Grandma and Papa's house to go trick or treating. Kara has been waiting for this night all week long! I even joined in on the fun and dressed up too. Kara was Tinker Bell, Michael was Peter Pan, and I was Wendy Darling. I tried to get Wayne to be Captain Hook but he wouldn't.So we had an Alien, a Pirate Wench, an Indian, Tinkerbell, Peter Pan, and Wendy Darling. We are a very diverse group
My Tink playing with some glow braclets and ignoring the camera. Tink always had a mind of her own and was a tad onery!
Chelsea, Scarlett, and Trevor!
And I happened to come across this picture....a blast from the past....

Donavan and I found these really cool ketchup and mustard costumes that we had to have!! And boy did we have fun with them (the next year we made them into crayons).

Here is also a very young Chelsea (purple witch), Scarlett (in orange), and Trevor the fire fighter. All before weddings and babies. Seems like forever ago!!


Last night we carved our 4 pumpkins. This year Kara was more into it, she was able to clean out her very own pumpkin and tell mommy that it needed 2 eyes, a nose, and a mouth!

Kara got a haircut!!

Well we did it! We cut Kara's hair....and most of the curl went with it. I was tired of Kara crying about getting her hair combed after baths and in the morning because of tangles. I would even use detangler spray and it was still a battle with her. I took Kara over to my mom's house and had my mom cut it. I started to tear up when she made the first snip....kept thinking "what am I doing...she has beautiful hair!" I love the way it looks, actually looks much healthier. It does make my little girl seem older to me....Before....
and after....

Pumpkin Patch

We made our family trip to the Bear Creek Pumpkin Patch a week ago. This was Michael's 1st trip there. Here are a few photos..

Hi Everybody!!

Kara enjoyed running through the pumpkins

...and then she pushed one down the hill...So Chelsea was gracious enough to get it for us!!

Finally she picked a pumpkin....and she didn't care to take her picture with it!

It's been awhile....

.....since my last post. Been very busy around here, Michael started vegetables at the beginning of the month and loves them. We put Kara in "big girl" underwear with hopes that she will become potty trained soon. Only a couple of accidents so not too bad....we just started 2 days ago. I am now officially on a 2 week vacation from school and I am loving it!!! I leave you with a few pics taken over the last couple of weeks...enjoy..

5 months

It's hard to believe that Michael is already 5 months old. He is getting so big! Michael loves his cereal and veggies, except for peas. He is rolling over all the time and has even managed to roll completely off his blanket....the fun is about to begin! Michael loves to laugh at his big sister Kara and she loves to make him laugh. It is such a joy to watch the two of them interact with eachother.
Kara is growing up way too fast. Can't hardly believe that in 3 1/2 months she will be 3 years old! She is such an amazing little girl! Before we know it she will be in preschool! Don't even want to think about that. Potty training is....well let's just say....progressing very slowly. Somedays I think she is ready to go into panties and others not so much. She is very wishy-washy on telling us when she has to use the potty. I know eventually it will happen, just wish is was sooner rather than later.
When I get around to upload some photos I will share with all!
Until then......

Happy 33rd Birthday Corinna

Ok, so first I want to wish a very happy birthday to the best big sister and aunt there ever was! Since my sister posted a couple pictures of me on her site that a tad silly and embarrassing for the world to see, I thought I would share a few more that she seemed to have left out. Of course, they are all about her!Corinna all dressed for the circus.....she had to go with our Aunt and Uncle...mommy was busy giving birth to little ol' me!
ahhh.....she loved that slug..his name was "Ollie"
So this was taken about 5 1/2 years ago at a wedding! Yes, this is how we behave at weddings!
And last but not least....a more recent picture of my beautiful sister holding my little man, Michael!
