Pigtails and Pudding

November 22, 2009

I love Kylie's hair in PIGTAILS!!!! I know there's not much there, but there is finally enough for two seperate ponies. Tonight, Kylie and Mommy played beauty parlor and then Daddy and Kylie shared a big bowl of chocolate pudding. And we learned that Kylie loves chocolate pudding. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of Kylie begging for more, or doing her crazy happy dance because of the sugar rush (note to self, try sugar-free next time), but I did get one picture where you can see a tiny streak of pudding on her upper lip if you look closely... We had a great Sunday night tonight. I love my family!


Family Pictures

For the last year, just about ever family picture we have was taken by a tripod. Needless to say we were pretty excited when we had the opportunity to have a real photographer take our pictures this year. We are doing a little trade of services for our family photos this year and next weekend I will be heading out to return the favor. We think they turned out super cute considering the mucky, rainy, 42 degree weather. Kylie was still eating it up. I have never seen a one year old do so well during family pictures! And now I am so happy to have them all hanging on our walls!


Getting All Gussied Up!

So, we had planned on doing our family pictures on a Friday afternoon, but because of a small miscommunication we ended up pushing them back to the following Monday. Still, on Friday afternoon, Kylie and I got all gussied up for our photo shoot and practiced our smiles. I wanted to see how our outfits and colors would photograph, so we went out in the front yard and I just followed Kylie around for almost an hour. She loves playing in the front yard. Oh, and she insisted on wearing Mommy's necklace. I thought she looked too cute!


Halloween 2009

November 1, 2009

We had such a fun Halloween this year!!! Grandma Sherri and Grandpa Andy came all the way down from New Hampshire to spend the weekend with us. We have been having so much fun since they've been here. We went to a Trunk-or-Treat at our church and ended up winning the costume contest! We all went as characters from the Wizard of Oz. Kylie was Dorothy, I was the Lion, Mike was the Tinman, Andy the Scarecrow and my mom was Glenda the Good Witch of the North. Our costumes were definitely a hit! And we had so much fun parading around the parking lot in them! I think Kylie's favorite part of the whole day was collecting candy. You'll notice, in every single picture she has her candy clutched tightly in her hands.

The whole gang!

I got candy, Mom!!!

Glenda and Dorothy

Her hair cracks me up in this picture. No matter how long it gets, I don't think it will ever lay down.

Getting one last shot with Kylie in her Dorothy wig

Later we took Kylie trick-or-treating to a couple houses in our neighborhood. She had a great time as long as Mommy was carrying her. By the time we got back to the house, she was ready for a bath and bed. Actually, we all were...

She looked so stinking cute!

Trick or Treat!?!

Are we done yet?

Happy Halloween!


It's my Hat...

Kylie found this hat in our closet about a month ago and now it is her favorite accessory. She puts it on all by herself and walks around the house in it all the time. She wont keep her headbands on for more than three minutes but give her her hat and she'll wear it all day!
