Happy Halloween 2011

We have a leopard kitty, a SWAT team member and a cheerleader bitten by a vampire...all dressed up and ready for some candy.  I wonder how much work is actually getting done at school today...what a Monday morning:)

The other night Arabella and I were discussing dimples.  She and Blake both have them.  She knew that I had them, but was asking about Daddy.  I told her yes, but she had to go inspect for herself.  She then repeated her facts to we all have dimples except Olivia.  Olivia, being the third child she is, immediately objected.  "NO!  I want dimples, too.  Mommy, can you buy me some?"  She asked the question so sweetly after her outburst, I was wishing that I actually could.

I love this sister love picture from Hawaii.  Sissies are the best.

My Little Pumpkins 2011

Here are my babies at the pumpkin patch this past weekend.  It is one of my favorite places every year to load up on photos of my babies.  I love fall.  I think it is my favorite time of year for the vivid colors, the weather and the pumpkins.  My best laid plans of a photo extravaganza were thwarted this weekend by unexpected circumstances and I only ended up with a few pictures...not my normal 20 or more selection.  It all started with a Mother/Son Skate on Friday night that left me in a splint and sling for the weekend.  As I tried my best to shoot with one arm and my giant lens, I moved a setting on my camera and ended up with a card full of over exposed, completely blown out images.  Thankfully, I discovered it before we actually got in the car or I would have no memories for the year captured.  Daddy rounded up the kids and stuck them in a pumpkin barrow to save my sanity for the day.  So I get one single memory for the year, and I try best to forget the skating incident and the splint for a long while.

My Beauty

 I love how beautiful her hair looks in these pictures.  It has become a mane.  She got into a trend last week of braiding her wet hair and sleeping on it at night.  The results are this lovely mermaid hair the next day.  She is so beautiful, but even sweeter in her heart.  I love this girl.

What if...

Arabella said, "Mom, what if you got your camera and took pictures of me with my wavy hair in my cheer uniform with this tiara?  Wouldn't that be sooo cute?"  OK, Bells.  Done.  It is sooo cute, my little Beauty.

Something is Missing...

Blake lost his first tooth ever on Tuesday.  A tooth fairy named Bennett visited him that night and left him goodies.  I think my favorite thing about kids losing their first tooth is when they stick their tongues through the new space every chance they get.

He is so proud.  I think he looks even better.
