Halloween continued…

Grace is feeling much better than Grant, but he mustered up enough energy to make it over to Publix (our local grocery store) for some trick-or-treating and a few houses in the neighborhood.  He enjoyed handing out the candy much more.  Our little Tootsie couldn’t wait to get her hands on the Reese’s Peanut Butter…

  • They are so cute! I love the tootsie rolls on the headband. Glad y’all were able to enjoy time with your mom. Hope the kids are feeling much better soon.

  • Karen

    So nice that you were able to “roll” with the “UPS” and down of the season. Sure hope everyone is on the bend now.

  • Love the picture of Grace eating the peanut butter cup! Great pictures! Happy Halloween.

  • Quincy

    These costumes made me and Kirk laugh aloud. Your mom did a great job, and I hope they are feeling better. Such cute kids.

  • Jen

    So totally adorable. Your mom is so talented!

    Hope they feel well enough to trick-or-treat tonight… least long enough to get Mom some chocolate! 🙂

  • jalynn

    What great costumes! I hope they have fun tonight.

  • Ha! Jen said exactly what I was thinking 🙂 Can’t believe your mom made that cute UPS shirt. And the box is so clever. Get well soon, everybody!


  • Diana

    Oh they turned out so good!! Hope everyone feels better soon!

  • These are great! Hoping the rest of your neighborhood gets a chance to see them too.

  • Natalie

    Way to go Nana on the costumes. SO cute. Hope they fel better soon.

This & That

Fall:  We’ve been enjoying fall (when it hasn’t been raining)…the colors are just about in full and will be gone too soon.  Grace, just like her older brother would spend hours in the yard… Grant:  Lost tooth number seven!  I love these pictures: cool aid smile, big boy teeth, dirt on forehead and a bit…

  • Sorry the kids are sick. 🙁
    But what a fun This and That to read. I love Grace’s little pink shoes in the first pictures and your mom makes the BEST outfits! I can’t wait to see her Halloween creations.

    I have to mention how MUCH i LOVE the sky picture!!! LOVE love LOVE it!!

  • I think your Holiday card picture is up there (the one with Grant and Grace on the ground), but I’m sure you want to get on of all four of you. The sun coming through the leaves just made my list of some of my favorites of yours.

  • I really loved the sky picture, I just stared and stared at it 🙂 All the pics were lovely, and ur kids are soooo darn cute

  • Natalie

    Make sure and tell Nana that dress on Gracie is adorable! I showed Brooklyn the pics of Grant and before she read anything, she said “he’s lost more teeth”! Love those toothless grins.

  • Diana

    Please tell mom that if she’s not going to weave me a picnic basket for Christmas I wouldn’t mind a dress similar to that, or a shirt 🙂

  • Jessica M

    I happen to think the fish eye lens shot of the sky is wicked! Hope you’ve had a great visit with your mom!

  • Jen

    Yes, if she’s taking orders, please tell Nana that I’d like a dress in my size, too. 🙂 I seriously need to attempt that pattern for K but I’m afraid it wouldn’t turn out as cute.

    I can’t believe Grant has lost 7 teeth!

    Great job on the pumpkins. I love Gracie’s expression.

  • Cari

    Oh heavens!! I would love you for all time if you could find out where your mother got that cream material for Grace’s dress. That dress is BEYOND adorable!

    Feeling all kinds of sympathy for you. We have 2 sick kiddos here too.

  • Lori

    Wow…I’m not sure how I got so far behind so fast! I love the outfits and costumes Grandma made. Grant and Grace look so great! I’m SO glad they are feeling better! I love your afternoon of enjoyment photos…the clouds, perfect little ladybug and all. Thanks for sharing the joy of your world!
