Poisonous Apples

Jillian and I had to make a quick trip to Kohl's on Friday night. While I was there I noticed that the Halloween costumes were 60% off. Hadley had been asking for a Snow White dress. I found one and got it for her. She was so excited when I gave it to her and wanted it on right away. She was playing Snow White and I needed to get dinner going. I asked her what she wanted for dinner and she said, "Probably poisonous apples mom."
I thought I would never stop laughing.

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!

Hadley painted another pumpkin last night.

This morning Mike made us orange pumpkin shaped pancakes. They were delicious.
Now Mike and Hadley are at the store getting a few things to finish up their spooky front porch.
Here is a video of Hadley from this morning.

Bath Time

The girls are taking baths together now and love it. The first few were a little rough. I think Jillian was a little scared of Hadley and water together :) But now they love it!

Happy 30th!

Happy 30th Birthday Audra. We love you. Have a great day!

Past weekend

Where do all the hours in the day go? Finding time to blog these days has been a challenge. Could be the 6 month old and 2 1/2 year old I have running around. Well, Jillian isn't running but trying her hardest to crawl. Somebody please slow her down.
Last Thursday my mom and brother came to town for the weekend. They had 2 days off of school and wanted to spend it with us. We didn't take many pictures (sorry Jess).

On Thursday evening we had family pictures and Jillian's 6-month pictures taken. Mom and Alex were a big help keeping the girls occupied while we picked out pictures. We loved them all.
Here are a few.

Jillian did not care for the flower.
But Hadley loved it.

Here is one of our family pictures. You might see it again come Christmas :)

This is our model in training and she as the attitude down.
Uncle Alex and Jillian hanging out on the couch.
Sorry no pictures of my mom. She ended up getting a bacterial infection and was sick Saturday night and Sunday. This is how Hadley felt about that.Jillian wasn't happy either but I couldn't get a sad face from her. She is all smiles the majority of the time.

On Sunday night we had a Fall Festival at church. I was in charge of pumpkin painting with the younger kiddos. It was a ton of fun.
Here are Mike and Hadley carving their pumpkin.
It was a busy and fun weekend.

6-month pictures

Here is a preview of the pictures we had taken tonight.

Last Saturday we took our annual trip to the pumpkin patch. We tried a new one out this year and liked it. I think we might even go back this weekend to let Hadley ride the horses.

Here are Hadley and Mike picking out their pumpkins.

I could not get her to pose, she kept running away.
Me and the girls. I didn't notice that Jillian's headband was falling down.
They had a lot of play houses around for the kids. Hadley loved them.

Guess who is 6-months now?
She celebrated by only getting mommy up once last night. I think I heard the angels singing :) It had been a rough couple of weeks with colds and she is still a little congested.
We have her 6-month checkup tomorrow and the dreaded shots :( I think mommy cries more than the kiddos.
Here are a couple more shots from our mini photo shoot this morning.

30th Birthday

Happy 30th Birthday Christie. We hope you have a great day!

Hair is something Hadley has never lacked in :) She was born with a full head of it. I will never forget as I was in labor and pushing the nurse said more than once, "I see a full head of dark hair."
She has been through many stages with her hair.
The Donald Trump comb over-
The bow stuck in with Caro syrup-
The top ponytail-

The little pigtails-
The longer pigtails-
The braids-She has never really put up a fight when I do her hair. It has just always been part of the morning routine. Until a couple of weeks ago. She started to hate having her hair brushed and she would pull it out the minute I got it pulled up. So on Saturday we decided it was time for a cut. We had Ms. Corrine cut off 4 inches. I think it looks cute and we may even go a little shorter next time.

I will say it makes her look a lot older. Where did my baby go?
