Beggar's Night

In our town they do their trick-or-treating on October 30th and they call it "Beggar's Night". Dorothy and Baby Glinda had a great time getting candy from all of the neighbors. The weather was fantastic which made it even more fun.

Home At Last

After an extended visit to Omaha and our first real family vacation to Colorado, we are finally home!! Ella and Caroline had a great time visiting Uncle Ciaran, Auntie Ellie and Baby Madalyn (or Mads, as Ella calls her) in Fort Collins. We all got our teeth cleaned and had a great time at a cabin in Estes Park. Our only mishap was when Ella fell into a partially frozen lake in the Rocky Mountain National Park!!

Hayrack Ride!!

Tonight we went to a hayrack ride and cookout for Daddy's work. The weather was just gorgeous. Ella got to bounce on a giant hay bale and make s'mores. Caroline was just happy to run around in a big, open field.

Decisions, decisions.........

Ella simply cannot decide what she wants to be for Halloween. The whole concept of Halloween, getting huge amounts of candy because you dress up in a cute costume and say three little words, is almost too much for her to handle. When you throw in the option of choosing the costume, well that's just too much. Absolutely just too good to be true. So everyday Ella presents new ideas about what she would like to be for Halloween. Today she has decided she will be a flower. Yesterday it was a crayon and then a black cat. She has also suggested Dorothy (from the Wizard of Oz), a witch, a munchkin, Snow White and, my personal favorite, Mary. As in the mother of God. She thought Mary would be good because, "her outfit looks warm, it has a hood." Wednesday is the deadline for making up her mind though, we are off to the fabric store then to choose patterns and fabric.
