Happy Halloween

I have a lot of "catching up" to do on the blog. So, we'll start with the most recent.....Halloween.
Our bunco group decided to have a Halloween costume party this month. I dressed up as "Make-over Molly" "I know all the latest fashion tips, I'm self educated from 'online'" Some say socks and sandals are a no, I say they are a GO!" "Did you know, if you put cotton balls in your rollers, it helps extract the moisture faster?" Needless to say, we had a fun time.

The ward "Trunk-or-treat" was on the youth night, the 27th. Shawn had class that night, but the girls and I managed to still make it. Probably a good thing I told them about it in the morning, because by the afternoon, I was not wanting to load them all up in the car, in the pouring rain. Of course, it's all worth it in the end. They had a blast.
Andie was a butterfly princess and Ali was our prom queen.
Ali enjoyed the donut eating contest

Funny, funny girls. Andie allowed me to dress her up, curl the hair, lipstick, blush, the works. Ali on the other hand - did not want her hair done, wore her crocs on the wrong feet and made a great fashion statement. I guess she gets that from her mom.

They had a fun time at the carnival and a great time "Trick-or-treating."

Adalyn - 4 months

Our little Adalyn is 4 months old. Hard to believe. She had her appointment last week and weighed in at 11lbs. 1oz. and was 25 1/2 inches long! That's the 5% for weight and 90% for height. We love her so much!! I love that she is so little - it's fun having a "baby" for so long.
She also got her first two teeth last week.  I'm sure the top ones are working on coming in.  She loves to roll to her tummy and yesterday she got back around to her back a few different times.  She is such an active little baby.  She loves her sisters and is for the most part, a VERY happy baby!!

Below are more pictures of her.  We weren't able to get individual shots of her on our first round of pictures, so these were taken last night.  Enjoy!

Thanks Chelsea!!

"SUPER" fun things....

Here are some random pictures over the last few weeks. First of all, we had a watermelon growing in front of our apartment!! We finally picked it and sliced it open to find...
a YELLOW watermelon. It was still yummy - and fun to eat a different color melon. The plant was a product of our neighbor spiting seeds. :)

Andie was invited to a birthday party a few weeks ago - which was a "superhero" party. Knowing the obsession with my kids and being superheros, I had a feeling I would be making one of these soon after. I ended up unpicking the "A" and not putting ali's name on it - satin is hard to sew!

Needless to say - the kids no longer have to make capes from dishtowels...they both have their own superhero cape....and they love them!! (yes, they were flying SO fast, their hair was messed up ;)

Andie was even kind enough to "share" with Adalyn and has been begging that I make a "really small cape" for her.

Super Adalyn!!

Friday night we went out with our neighbor's to dinner and the UGA Woman's Volleyball game. The girls had so much fun cheering on the team. We need to do more fun things like that. Unfortunately we had to leave a little early, but the girls had a great time!

Our great neighbors!! Thanks for the fun times Mike, Heather and Anders.

Ali loved dancing when the band played

At times, Andie thought it was too loud....but still very fun!

I finally got sick of my front porch and dead flower pots. So, the girls and I venture to Walmart and bought some new flowers. In the spring I had planted seeds, but only ever got one flower. The plants after lack of water. (oops) Now they are pretty again, and hopefully we won't kill these ones!

We had an eventful General Conference Weekend. We missed most of the Saturday Sessions. So, I look forward to catching up on those. We were at a funeral (non-lds) during the first session and got home right as the 2nd session was starting. So, the kids were unprepared to sit and listen. We caught some here and there as we were trying to help out the girls.

We also took Family Picture before Conference on Saturday.  Here are a few of the fun.

Such a cute family I have!! I'm so blessed.

Sunday went much better - as I was more prepared. We had coloring pages, conference Bingo, fruit-loop necklaces to make and as you can see, our display of the Prophet and Apostles. As the girls watched conference, if they saw someone on the wall that was speaking - then they got to color a star and put it by their picture. They had a fun time with it.
(Yes, I do realize that Elder Worthlin is on the wall and Elder Anderson is not. I guess we need to order his picture so we're up-to-date for the next conference.)

Tonight, we still had the pictures up on the wall and had our FHE about prophets and apostles. Hopefully something will stick!

We sure do love life - it keeps us busy!
