Halloween Twenty Fifteen!

The holidays keep getting better and better as our girls have gotten older and have started to really "get" it. Halloween with little kids is the absolute best! I picked Eloise's costume, she was a wind-up doll (like Penny was). Penny said she wanted to be a witch's shoe, I hoped she would be goldilocks, we compromised and she was a witch.
She loves those pumpkins!

This one is an outtake, but it's so funny to me I couldn't help but include it!

Considering, I just threw away the very last halloween pumpkin, this post isn't quite as overdue as it seems, right? Ok, so Halloween was a few months ago, but these pictures are too cute to keep hidden on my computer!

I wanted to go to a big pumpkin patch and take a million pictures, Andrew wanted to grab a few pumpkins from the grocery store. We compromised and went to a small local pumpkin patch at a church. It ended up being perfect! Short and sweet. Just the right size for our young family.

 Bribed! Totally Bribed!

First Day of Preschool

Penny started going to preschool again in September.  I desperately wanted a "first day of school" picture, but she would NOT have it and all I got was this:
I remember feeling really frustrated that I couldn't get a nice, smiling picture, but now that a few month have passed (and a scary hospital visit) I have a much better perspective. I love it! Attitude and all!

Despite her grumpiness about my constant picture taking, she was thrilled to be back! She was so happy when I picked her up, she let me take another picture of her, and she almost smiled! 
But when her teacher takes her picture, she's all smiles!
