Happy Halloween

This was a fun, fun, fun Halloween.  Ladybug talked nonstop about going trick or treating all day.  When T got home, she knew it was finally time to get into her costume.  

We walked over to the school for their trunk or treat and then went to all the houses on our street.  So many neighbors remembered our cupcake and chef costumes from last year.  Ha, no one even recognized us this year as the Fresh Beat Band.  (minus Shout)

I loved watching her go up to the door and yelling "trick or treat" before the door was even opened!  She hovered at almost every door and had a little conversation with every neighbor too.  

When we got home, she was ready to sit outside and hand out our candy.  I believe that was just as much fun for her as going out and about!

What She Wore

As we were getting ready for school this morning and all she could talk about were the sticks, the sticks, the sticks.  And I could not figure out what she was talking about.  I asked her to come show me and she pointed to the ghost cake balls that Coco had placed on sticks.  They are really too cute to eat!

Chair Picture!




At 3 years, 8 months:

* She's making up little songs and singing them....all the time.

* Her 3T jeans that I bought for her last fall still were too big this fall.  Coco was a rockstar and found some 3T skinny jeans with that adjustable waist and they fit her perfect.

* Ladybug knows exactly what she wants and demands it most of the time.  We continue to struggle with asking nicely.

* She still doesn't crawl out of bed on her own.

* She is obsessed about the sun "going down" and the moon "coming up" and whether it's dark or light outside.

* Ladybug has ridden a merry-go-round and a tractor ride at the pumpkin patch.  This is big progress for her as she has historically been very scared of rides.

* 29 pounds, 37 inches tall, and a size 7 shoe.

Jumpity Jump

Our little bug is in Mississippi for a few days...without us.  /sniffle

I'm pretty sure she doesn't miss us one little bit.

Pumpkin Patch

We got up and around early this morning for a trip to the pumpkin patch.  Ladybug was in a great mood and really enjoyed every minute.  She even commented at one point, "These pumpkins are making me silly!"

It was also kind of a big deal that she ran to that train and jumped into the seat with another little girl that was already there.  Usually she's very scared of rides (animals too actually) and I'm hoping this means there will be a Disney trip in my our near future.

Lots of pictures to share:

Pajama Day Wednesday


Today was my day off after doing a 6 day work stretch.  It was a much needed pajama day for both Ladybug and I.  That's exactly what we did, stayed in pj's all day long and played, painted, worked puzzles, and hung up our first potty chart.

She also proudly placed her first sticker on the circle too!  Yay, you know what that means.  I had to laugh when after the sticker was in place she said, "Let's go potty again!"

Maybe this will be just what she needs.

Halloween Treat Bags

I love, love, love these Stampin'Up! 1x8 cellophane treat bags!  They are also very affordable at only $2.50 for FIFTY.  That's a whole lot of treats!  You can buy them right here.

I decided I wanted to be the cool mom this year at Ladybug's pre-k class.  I'm off to a decent start with these Halloween favors that hold 2 fun Halloween pencils.  Aren't they cute and fun?

I also invested in a personalized 2 line stamp, shown below, to make it easy to let everyone know just exactly who has a cool mom!

Our Last Day

Our vacation is winding up, can't believe it went by so fast.  T loves this place as much as I do and we're already making plans to come here again in the spring.


Here's a blast from the past of Oct 2010 when Ladybug and I came to D'Arbonne and found this cool rock.



We never made it over here with Buggy for a photo, but T and I propped the camera up on the truck and got this quick shot.

The Cousins are Here




Riding around in style with G-dad.


The cousins finally arrived yesterday: Ladybug, Peyton, Luke and Annalee.  Ladybug had been wanting to be carried almost everywhere we went...she didn't want to walk through the grass or along the trails.  But after the cousins arrived, she ran around and in and out of the cabin like she owned the place.



Checking out a little frog that Annalee found.




Sneaking over the to table to eat popcorn every chance she could.  This girl loves her popcorn!


S'mores!  This was so much fun and the weather was so cool outside, that made them even yummier!

More Fishing



T took this little video of their fishing trip.  I think you can understand her pretty well ask she talks about the fish.  Soooo cute!
