More party pictures

My baby is one

Abbie's birthday was on Wednesday. I can't believe my baby girl is one already. She weighs 20 lbs. 12 oz. and is 29.5 inches long. The poor, little girl got 7 shots on Friday. Ouch! She had her immunizations plus a flu shot (she starts at All About Kids on December 1, so it seemed like a good idea). She actually has done pretty well. She didn't like it when I took her 5 bandaids off though!

I had her birthday party on Saturday. She dug into her birthday cake before we could even finish singing Happy Birthday to her. It was hilarious!! I've never had a child dig into a birthday cake like that before. She needed no encouragement at all.

All of these cute pictures were taken by my neighbor. He did an incredible job, and I think he had fun taking them too!

The following shots show just how much fun it really was taking family pictures last month. The expression "a picture is worth a thousand words" comes to mind. These expressions prove my kids are not as cute as they look!

Another Halloween has come and gone. Interestingly enough, I've decided that it really is fun to dress up for Halloween. My original plan had been for all of us to be jailbirds. Unfortunately, I couldn't find costumes for Ashley and Austin (I had tried ordering them from Oriental Trading Company, but they were out...just my luck). So, my little family consisted of 3 jailbirds, one race car driver (go, Tony Stewart!), and a goth tweener.

We really didn't do much trick-or-treating this year. We mostly went visiting people which was funner. Who needs all that candy anyway! We went to my sister-in-law's tunk-or-treat. It's always fun to hang out with the Heiners...

and the Whitehead pirates!

Once we made it back home from our journeys, my cute little nephews came over to show off their costumes.
