Our October

Kara lost her two front teeth within days of each other. Now she is singing the song "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth..." nearly every day. Andrea was singing that same song last year! I can't believe how quickly they are growing up!

Since dad was out of town for Halloween, we painted pumpkins instead of carving, and the kids had a blast with that. Kara said that hers was "created"--it was cute to watch her try all different colors and things to get her own special pumpkin.

Once we convinced Ashley that Halloween is fun (she was very afraid of pumpkins a month ago), she decided to be Cinderella. Halloween is a HUGE event here in Arizona--it's like a big neighborhood block party! There was a haunted house, a movie playing on the garage, and everyone sits out front in lawn chairs to hand out candy. My kids loved it!

So Ashley turned two last month, and of course, we gave her a baby doll. She still loves it nearly a month later, and I love that she has "Ashley's baby" who she named Baby Dora. (No surprises there.) Maybe it will make mommy having a baby ok???

This is Ashley with her cake. I wish I had a good messy cake picture, but she wanted every bite to make it into her mouth. She is my best eater, but aren't kids at two supposed to still be messy with their birthday cakes?? (Kara was still messy at 6!)

Oh my gosh, is Ashley really 2 already? She is growing up so fast. Your kids look so cute in their costumes. How fun that Halloween is celebrated that much. Wish it was like that here...

A warm Halloween sounds nice, we (usually) don't get that here. It is interesting that Ashley is now your best eater, that is great.

Tina, seriously Ashley is your best eater? How amazing is that!!! I should tell Dr. Matt, he always asks about you guys!
Love the costumes, Tyler is as handsome as possible.

Cute trick or treaters you have there. I love Andrea as the doctor! Happy birthday Ashley! It looks like she will be some good help for you.

Ashley is getting so big. I can't believe she is two. I love the costumes. Brittney was a witch too.
