I had a great time getting ready for the Halloween Party, I must say I love throwing parties and this one was the best holiday party I have thrown! We had a great time doing a popcorn relay out side! the kiddo's loved it, and the for the adults, we had a back to back balloon race, it was so fun I laughed the entire time! I hope to post recipes along with pictures of the food for everyone that wanted the recipes. What is so fun about having a Halloween party for kids is that they all really enjoyed it, they all loved the skeleton craft they made and everyone love playing the cheap balloons, playing bag-o, and the golf toss game. The treats were a huge hit, as I made monster cookies out of Oreos. reeses pieces and pretzels, my famous Autumn trail mix with M&M's , apple tarts with carmel and nuts and a scrumptious pork roast. It was such a fun party!

During our Pop Corn race, you had to get pop corn in to your bowl with a spoon but be careful, it's sorta windy that is why Elmo is holding his popcorn



this adorable Skeletons were great for the kids to make!


Aiden is trying to get lots of popcorn in his bowl... Go Darth Vader Go!


Playing out side on a beautiful afternoon

My sweet Daughter did have her costume on, and then she needed to take a nap right before the party got started! perfect timing huh? this is after her little cat nap and wanted her mommy isn't she cute?


This is my Favorite picture, you have Elmo and Darth Vader! what a cute combo! We love you Joe!


Our Princesses wishing by the wishing well..


We all had a great time and we will do it again next year!

For those that are coming to our Halloween Party you will be greeted with the Poky Little Puppy!

We are getting busy every day as Halloween approaches it's so fun to see Chloe enjoying the seasons, she sees leaves falling and just stares out the window wondering what is going on out side, she isn't liking her jacket much or her hat for that matter and she doesn't know what to think about her new shoes that I put on her... I wonder what she is thinking, her expressions tell a lot these days

We are starting to baby proof, I am constantly saying, oh that's for mommies or for Daddies, or oh you can't have that let mommy see that, thank you Chloe. Chloe is cruising and not really wanting to crawl much, if she can chose she would rather walk (with my help of course) it's so fun to see her learn to walk.

Gary and I are enjoying the season by doing yard work, I thought it would end but not so much, I have been digging in the dirt and raking leaves, we have 3 big maple trees that are dropping leaves by the ton!

8 month pictures

here are pictures that I have taken for her 8 months, I refuse to go to a portrait studio since I can do a better job, and it's more personable/meaningful when I can do it. I love them all and I am not done but here are my favs!

That's right she is standing up on her own look out she might start to walk before she can crawl! Heaven Help me, how can she be a toddler so soon? Let me know what you think about these pictures, I am still on the edge on starting small photo sessions in IA falls.

8 months already!

Chloe is growing up so fast, It's so much fun to get to know her, these are the things I know about her:

Love puppies aka: Drago and Adrian
Loves playing with her piano, her frogies (baby Pad) and knocking down blocks I stack up
Loves sweet potatoes and apple sauce
Loves to sleep in the dark Her eyes are very sensitive to the light
Doesn't like loud people
She seems to already have an opinion on everything that deals with her life... humm I think she takes this after her mommy
I think she is going to walk before she can crawl, as she holds on to our hands and walks just fine, and has yet to try to crawl...
Loves sesame street and other cartoons
Loves orange Popsicle (gar's favorite flavor also)
I think she weighs about 20 lb and is still really tall for her age, maybe 29 inches or so...
She is so sweet, she squeals and talks to any thing or anybody, she is learning to stand up and start cruising She is so much fun!

who has teeth?

Chloe loves Sesame Street, so do I, after breakfast we watch Sesame Street while I get to do stuff in the kitchen like doing dishes, cleaning, making menus, getting stuff ready for the day.... the list goes on and on but I am so happy Sesame street keeps her attention at 8 months! she usually lasts for about 30 minutes and then she wants to do something else, at which time I put her on the floor so she can play with her piano... got a love tv....
