And yes, I'm tickled pink that Grace's picture is on her blog again. But really, it's not the important part. It's the cause that counts.
Have a happy & safe Halloween!

The girls have been practising for the upcoming Cross-Country Track Meet for a couple weeks and today I decided to bring along the camera. I wanted to make sure I could take a good picture of them running.
I have to say, I'm so proud of my girls. They both know that running is not their strength, but they try their best and have fun along the way.
Ready, set... GO!

Yesterday a package arrived and Grace was super excited. You know that feeling when your birthday is over and all the presents have been opened? You come crashing down from a high and almost get sad that it's all over. And then, out of the blue, another one shows up... yep, that's the wonderful feeling of a surprise.
Anyways, the present was a microphone, t-shirts of cousin Spencer's band and the sweetest card. Both girls were just THRILLED. On went the shirts and off they ran with their little amp and Grace's new microphone. They set up a stage in the backyard and sang away their darling hearts!! I was surprised that we didn't get any complaints from the neighbors :-D, they were LOUD!!!
I'm sending a big fat thank you to Anmarie, Brian, Dessa, Simon & Spencer. You all know I'm not the best at sending thank you cards, so I offer you these funny videos instead... much better, right?
Oh, and check out Spencer's band. We are so proud of him! The girls think he's the coolest, lol!

Now, if you know me, you know I worry about the kids clothes way too much. Yes, I had their pumpkin patch outfits picked out a month ago... and I was determined they would wear them. I even checked the weather report and with a high of 80 degrees, I figured they would be okay in their fall attire. Well, I was wrong... I totally blame it on the weather people :-D. As soon as we got there, the girls started complaining about the heat... since they were wearing pants under dresses, they were able to take at least something off. But still... it bugs me that the dresses are a bit short and Erina's socks are white. I'm weird, I know!!!
The corn maze was pretty cool. I'm telling you, I would never go in there alone. I'm a chicken that way... I get panicky. But with Brian in the lead, I was pretty confident that we would find our way back out. And we did... after about an hour of stomping through a hot field :-D. The kids had a blast to say the least. What an adventure!
Here are all the kids (hint, hint) on one of the look-out bridges
Grace looking pretty...
... and being my patient model.
I love this one with Brian peeking out...
After all the fun we cooled down with some icee's, yummy!
And to finish off this post, here is the cutest hot face I know

I'm drop dead tired and just loaded up all the pictures. This one stood out to me... she's so sad looking and still... I like it. I'll promise more pictures will come tomorrow. Happy ones, friendship ones, candle blowing ones... you get it, right?

I guess the pictures speak for themselves... I absolutely love the Abbi Knot dress on Grace. The lime velour ruffles are too short, but I have the bigger size coming my way already. What do you think of the second combo? Too much blue? That's what I'm thinking...
Erina actually likes her pieces (yay!!) and she already wore the pants & shrug to school today. Skirt is still big, but it will work.Grace wanted to go outside for a few pics. Here you can tell that the green ruffles are way short on her... I don't think I like the cropped look for winter.
Of course I'm excited about her birthday, how could I not be... her little perky attitude is contagious. And after all she still has her little girl voice and she sneaks into our bed almost every night... ok, I'm better, she's still my baby.
We had a little family only party for her this weekend. Enjoy the pics!
