Carving Pumpkins!

Audrey, Emily and Olivia all drew pictures of what they wanted their jack-o-lanterns to look like. All three wanted princess pumpkins!!! How in the world you make a princess jack-o-lantern is still a mystery to me. Instead of glueing bows and dusting sparkles over the poor things, we settled on eyelashes.
These Jack-o-lanterns sure look great all lit up!I don't know what I was thinking Wednesday when we bought THREE pumkins to carve. The girls sure did have fun, but I was exhausted by the end of it. If Todd just happens to be away on an audit next year at this time, I'll be sure to remember to only pick one pumkin.

Tub Time!

These pictures were actually taken in September when Marcella turned the big 1-8! That is, 18 months. Yeah, Nursery is finally here! As you can see Marcella loves to take baths, especially with Audrey. Big sisters are so much fun.

Yes, it's finally happened. Marcella has grown a bit of hair! It's still that pretty reddish color and believe it or's curly!!!

Look at all of those curls in the back!
All clean and ready for bed. Bedtime includes hugs and kisses from mom and dad and tucked in with her bunny (aka bun bun).

Home Sweet Home!

I just realized that I haven't posted a picture of the final product of our home! Well, here it is, Home Sweet Home!

Gagon Halloween Party

It's Trick-or-Treating Time!Marcella, Payton, Preston, Audrey, Tori, Dylan, Emily, Olivia, and Austin the Skunk

Maxine hosted her annual Halloween party Saturday, October 27th. All the cousins had so much fun! The newest game was guess what body part's in the bag (spagetti for veins, peeled grapes for eyes, cantalope pieces for heart/kidneys, etc.) There'were some pretty funny faces! I wish I could've caught them with my camera. Instead I got a great picture of Emily dressed up as a clown, but like usual, hamming it up for everyone.
Marcella made the cutest Bunny! She loves wearing her costume. Saturday morning she actually took off her pajamas all by herself and was trying to put on her costume!
Olivia made the sweetest angel! Todd kept teasing her that it was the perfect costume since she's far from angelic!
Audrey wanted to be, as she's says, 'a wedding girl'. I tried to talk her into putting a long-sleeved t-shirt under her revealing gown, but she wouldn't have anything to do with it.
