Halloween!!!  The kids have been counting down the days, crossing each day off the calender in anticipation of this day and it's finally here!!!  

Lilly wanted to be Merida from Brave this year.  Lilly loves the princesses who kick but and don't need to be rescued.  She is such a brave little girl!  There were a lot of scary houses this year while we were trick-or-treating and non of them scared her!  She even went so far as to tell the people dressed in scary costumes that they didn't scare her!

Matthew wanted to be a fire fighter this year.  This is one of the things he wants to be when he grows up!  My poor sweet sensitive boy we a little scared by some of the more spooky houses we visited. 

Jack-Jack was a paramedic this year just like daddy!!  

Our carved pumpkins!!

Our Princess is 4!

Where has the time gone?! Our sweet little baby girl is 4!  She is such a sweet and helpful little girl!  She loves to help me with everything.  She is very artistic and a little OCD.  


A few things about Lilly:
Her favorite color is pink
She LOVES chocolate milk, strawberries and tomatoes
She carries a little gray beanie baby seal with her everywhere she goes
The seals name is Barf-Barf
Her favorite holiday is Halloween because she loves spooky things.
She loves her brothers they are her best friends
She loves primary
She likes to play dress up and put on make-up
She LOVES to paint her own nails

Lilly wanted to have her party at pump it up again this year.  She loves the bounce houses and I love how easy pump it up makes the party!  This year she wanted a Hello Kitty party, so I did my best to make a Hello Kitty cake and party favors.  

Lilly had so much fun with all her friends and family!

The Cake and party favors I labored over.

The whole gang!

We love this little girl so much!!  She is so sweet and loving.  She is growing into such a wonderful little person, we are so proud and happy to be her parents! (Brother had to try out the birthday throne)
