Happy Halloween!!

So as we entered the weekend, Kaitlin still had 2 more Halloween parties to attend.  First, we had the neighborhood party.  There were lots of people there but we didn’t last too long.  The best moments, unfortunately, I didn’t get pictures of but she followed a kid dressed up as Buzz Lightyear all night.  At one point, she kept getting closer, and closer, and closer … until she almost stole his jet pack!  Her Daddy swooped in to foil her plot.  She was a tricky Cinderella indeed!

Then on Sunday, we headed downtown for the church’s Fall Festival.  Kaitlin had a great time seeing all her friends, but she had a few moments.  The first came when she drug her Daddy to the “duck pond.”  Kory thought she wanted a duck (her favorite bath time friend), but instead, true to her last time at a real duck pond, she wanted to jump in!  Kory, once again, stopped her but she wasn’t too happy …

Oh well, I’ll have to admit it was a good try.  Next, she got to play in the bounce house. 


Kaitlin loved it!  She squealed the whole time and wanted to get back in the rest of the night.  They literally had to drag her out.  Finally, we got Kaitlin to sit down and take one last picture in her costume.

For our little Cinderella, the ball was over for the night.


What a great Halloween weekend!  Can’t wait for next year!

Party time

Kaitlin has been one busy girl this week with all her Halloween parties. We had a Gymboree party on Wednesday night and Kory got to come see Kaitlin in action. He had never seen her in the class, and I think he had more fun than Kaitlin did. She is a busy girl and it is hard to get a good picture of her in action!

She LOVES the rocking horse at Gymboree.  Ride ‘em cowgirl!

This also seems to be the one place where she likes to take instruction.  She was BFF with the class teacher.  Kaitlin was at the head of the class all night!  P.S. – LOVE the pig outfit on the left.


Kaitlin loves, loves, LOVES to dance!  This is one of her favorite songs at Gymboree and she even got a dance partner to hit the floor with her!  I believe she got some of these moves from her Daddy though!

Kaitlin also loves to play dress-up.  So, when the class leader wanted everyone to help dress her, Kaitlin was front & center!  At some point, she must’ve got a little bored and went to go find a ball … and what she did with it, I’m SURE was something else her Daddy taught her …

On Thursday Tracy had the entire playgroup over for a Fall Festival. It was amazing and Tracy did such a great job to make everything so special!

Check out the amazing treat table …


Kaitlin (aka Cinderella) had so much fun exploring the backyard and found her carriage in a John Deer Tractor. 


She was determined to be a princess that would drive herself.  Our little independent girl didn’t need any help … although she certainly had some offers …


I love this picture.  Kaitlin was driving a little too recklessly and fell off the wagon.  NO, she was not texting while driving.  Her sweet little friend was such a good sport.  It’s a good thing he doesn’t know about her Tennessee cheerleader outfit or I’m not sure this would’ve been a peaceful tractor ride.










Kaitlin loved the swing and was very happy to observe everyone from her “throne” just swinging away.


Cinderella even made a few rounds across the castle grounds …

We had such a fun time and it was so neat to see all the kids dressed up. It is fun to see Halloween through the eye’s of a child. It was a great week and we’re resting up for round two of parties this weekend!

The Great Pumpkin!

Kaitlin has been having fun dressing up this fall. I love a cute pumpkin outfit so I had to grab a few pictures. She was much more interested in twirling and dancing. This is one cute pumpkin.

Cutest Pumpkin in the Patch

  IMG_5777IMG_5780  IMG_5781   IMG_5786

 We planned to go to another pumpkin patch this weekend but woke up to some yucky weather . I did not want to play in the rain and mud so we ran around town.We found the prettiest pumpkins at  Wal-Mart so now Kaitlin LOVES to hug all our pumpkins when we play outside. Our little pumpkin had the time of her life in her tutu and did not want to give up the tutu for naptime. We had a wonderful weekend even with the bad weather and a terrible football game!

My Baby Pumpkin

My, my, my … what a difference a year makes …

 IMG_2446 IMG_5772

Kaitlin looked SO cute last year in her pumpkin dress.  It was so big though that she’s able to wear it again this year.  Where does time go?  It’s hard to believe that she was that little last year!


One thing doesn’t change though, my little pumpkin still makes a lot of the same faces!


Here are  a few more pictures of the cutest pumpkin in the patch.  I just love my little girl!
