Trick or Treat!

We went out trick-or-treating a little earlier this year because Holly had been up since 5:30 a.m. She made it until about 6:30 p.m. & started to have a meltdown. Brooke had a blast. I think she could've gone on for hours. She got the hang of it pretty quick & ate almost as much as she got!

They just love when I make them sit down before going out to get a picture

Holly was cruising all over the neighborhood (do witches wear flip flops?)
Trick or treat!
Bop kept chewing on her bucket handle until it finally broke...
....so then she had to carry it like this & kept spilling everything We had to go by and pick up Mr. Power Ranger & Cinderella (Reid & Laney)Holly was MUCH happier handing out candy. Every time the doorbell would ring she'd yell "The kids are here!"

If you ask Bop what she was for Halloween she would say "I am Snow White and I am just so beautiful!"

Waiting for trick or treaters to come

These are some pooped out girlies :)

School Halloween party

Holly got to wear her costume to school today. They had a little Halloween "show" where they sang four songs and then paraded around the school in their costumes. They were so cute!

Holly got us up at 5:30 am this morning wanting to put her costume on!

Parading around the school

Pretty Little witch!

My Gym Halloween

The girls got to dress up in costumes for their My Gym classes this week. I didn't want them to wreck their actual Halloween costumes so we improvised. Holly went as a "Flapper" And Bop went as a princess (shocker!).

Holly & Reid the Jaguar football player (Hey Reid- Jacksonville needs a quarterback!)

Brooke & Laney looked so darn cute in their little princess dresses!

Catching bubbles!

The Pumpkin Patch

After 3 - yes 3 - visits to the pumpkin patch, I still couldn't get Brooke to look at me and smile for a picture so I gave up. We now have about 10 pumpkins laying around our house since I felt like we had to buy one (or two) every time we went. :)
Holly was a good lil poser for Mommy!

Look at those beat up legs!!!

These posts are all out of order!

I can't figure out how to switch these posts around.....

Happy 5th Birthday Holly! It's been five wonderful years!







Holly's actual birthday

We went out for Japanese food on Monday for Holly's actual birthday with Grandma & Grandpa. After we got home, her buddies Laney & Reid came over for some cupcakes.

Opening presents!

Crazy Bop

This is where I found Brooke this morning....I swear she is into EVERYTHING!

Goofy girl

Grandma & Grandpa

Grandma & Grandpa Brue came to visit from Nebraska & the girls had a great time. Holly really enjoyed having them here for her birthday. After they left she said "Holly is very sad!" Grandpa Brue bought Holly & Brooke a pumpkin & carved it with Holly. She thought that was pretty cool.She's like her Dad - good at dictating & supervising.

We walked out on the pier after going out to eat.
