Anyone want to borrow a costume?

Halloween is around the corner (yippee!) and I have two toddler costumes someone is welcome to borrow. I have a cheetah costume (standard zip up with hood) and a homemade fairy costume (dress, wings, wand). If anyone wants them, let me know!

Sorry I don't have any pictures of the cheetah (would probably fit a child up to 24 mos), but here are pictures of my adorable fairy. (Honestly, I'm still just so proud I made this that I want it to be used again!) The fairy would probably fit up to a 3 or 4 year old.

my track star

Jason has been training to run a half marathon for St. Jude on Dec. 6th. This morning he ran 10 MILES! Wow, double digits! I'm so excited for him. He's been doing it with some of his friends and really enjoying it. I never thought he'd be into running, and I'm looking forward to cheering for him as he crosses the finish line!

My favorite time of year

The air is crisp, the delicious smelling candles are burning, the jackets are retrieved from the back of our closets...fall is my favorite time of year!

For Family Home Evening (our weekly family night held on Mondays) we had some friends over for our tribute to fall. After eating dinner baked in a pumpkin, we all had fun digging out the ooey-gooey mess and carving our pumpkins! Our pumpkin is the girl with eyelashes, and our friends carved the menacing classic jack-o-lantern.

I think the ears are nice touch and Addie agrees.

And here is Macie looking fashionable in the jacket Aunt Kari knitted for her.

I love fall!

Miss Macie is 4 months old!

It's hard to believe I am already four months old. It seems like yesterday I was inside my mommy's tummy, laughing at her and Dad's constant conversations about whether I'd be a boy or girl...and look at me now!
I love to eat my toes, blow bubbles, grab and eat toys,
coo and babble, and roll over. I'm just starting to perfect rolling back from my stomach onto my back, that has been a little harder for me.
I am grateful to have a big sister that loves to hold me, read to me, dance with me, help me clap, smother me with kisses, well, basically just show me everything that she's doing. I always smile when I see her.

I am one happy girl!
