Halloween Weekend 2010 Top 10!

#10 Playing outside Saturday morning with my little girl.  She loves to be outdoors!  This weather we have had lately is so wonderful! Thank you Kristen for the black kitty cat shirt!

#9 Listening to Addie read a book during “high chair time” with inflection! (Not to mention the fact that the book she loves most right now is the photo book of her 1st birthday party—really love that!)


#8 Night Visit to the Park on Saturday night after dinner!  Brandon loves these SpOoKy Halloween Eve PiCtUrEs!

#7 Carving a pumpkin with Addie who was completely uninterested!  Every time we asked her if she wanted to touch or try, she said “NO!” and ran the other way!  It got to be a joke, as you’ll see from the looks on our faces.

#6 “Bath! Baby! Bath! Baby!” Addie continually repeated this phrase this morning until I went to see what she was talking about and this is what I found…

#3 Hearing Addie say “Trick or Treat!” (well it sounded more like teet, teet!)

She also said thank you and bye bye at each and every house! 


# 2 Seeing her really enjoy the experience as she started to figure out what to do…

Today we took Addie and Rylee to the Dallas Arboretum Pumpkin Storybook Village! 

I think the pictures tell the story of our day best!!
















It was a great day!!

Laughing Ladybugs!

First of all, I just HAVE to document this little tidbit:

Addie, you are going through the most hilarious phase right now.  Laughing!!  You laugh all the time, day or night, about anything and everything.  Sometimes we will be driving down the road and you will just throw your head back and start cracking up laughing for no reason at all!  You laugh at the kids playing outside our window, you laugh on the swings, you laugh when I hand you a snack, you laugh when I change your diaper, you laugh all the time, and it makes my heart so happy, baby!!

Now, for the lady bug part!  Today was our fall festival at the mother’s day out and we both dressed up!  You were the cutest ladybug I have ever seen in my whole life and I was a fairy—well a sorry attempt at a fairy, but hey, I was busy making you the cutest ladybug ever!

Here are some pictures from the day:

Once we got to school your paparazzi mommy continued to follow you around with her camera…


This is your friend Ellie.  Her mom teaches with me.



Thank you Auntie Hillie for the cute lady bug trick or treat bag!  It’s the perfect accessory for her costume!

This little guy’s name is Cole and your teacher tells me you really like him!  I think his costume was ADORABLE!!


Looks like they had to try a few times to get a group photo because there was a very GROUCHY ladybug in the teacher’s lap!

This is your pumpkin craft you made at school today.  When I took it out to photograph it, you wanted to hold it.  I love how proud you are of your artwork from school.

I love you my little ladybug, even when you are grouchy!!  Thanks for making fun memories with me today!
