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.
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!
