Who needs a wagon when you've got a........suitcase? These two NEVER cease to surprise me!

Short and Sweet ~

Well....I finally talked Em into getting her hair cut! A little over a year ago, she decided she wanted to let it grow and eventually donate it to locks of love! However, because her hair is so unbelievably thick, the longer it got, the more difficult it was to manage! As much as it had grown, she still needed almost 4 more inches to be able to donate it......there's no telling how much longer that would have taken! So.....after 45 minutes of cutting this was the end result.....

......I love it! But more important......She does too!

Pebbles and the Pirate ~

The girls had a great time trick or treating this year! This was Ella's first time to go and Em's first time going "door to door" (she's always been to a trunk or treat or the Downtown festivities in Auburn)! It was like it used to be when I used to trick or treat.....where you couldn't even drive a car down the street for all of the people! El had a hard time grasping the concept that she couldn't eat every single piece that was dropped in her bag...other than that it was a great night!

Happy Birthday Ella ~

2 Already! Although she's been acting like it for quite some time now, I still can't believe she's already 2 years old! She had such a good time at her party! It wasn't until everyone started singing Happy Birthday to her that she realized the party was for her! As long as there's cake, Ella doesn't' care what's being celebrated! As much of a "handful" as she can be, I wouldn't want her any different! I love her to death! I wrote this for her invitation but ended up not using it! So just so it doesn't go to waste, I thought I'd add it to her Birthday "post"....Enjoy!

Ella Reid is turning Two!
These are some things she likes to do:
Read books about animals, letters, and shapes;
Eat bananas by bunches and fists full of grapes;
Hop in her car for an afternoon cruise;
Sneak into mommy’s closet to try on her shoes;
When “Gabba” comes on she’s ready to dance
And “break it down” with the gang and DJ Lance;
She’s rough and tumble and loving and sweet
From the tip of her ponytail to the toes on her feet!

2nd Annual Spooktacular Scavenger Hunt ~

We had so much fun last Halloween doing the scavenger hunt that we decided to do it again this year! Except, this year, we had a little more "yard" to work with! Being new to the area, I was a little worried about the turnout we might (not) have. But the turnout was great! The kids (and parents) seemed to have a great time! However, Em and her friends informed me that next year I need to make it a little more difficult (apparently 3rd graders are a lot smarter than I thought!) On a side note, Emma's costume was ALL her idea! I'm still not totally sure what she was.....she just said she wanted to be something dead!
