Bucky is getting pretty good at it.

Too sweet not to post.


Getting ready for Claire's Halloween party at school. Notice, she added wings to her costume for about 10 minutes.

Claire and her friends at school.

We have been doing a lot to get ready for Halloween around here. Sometimes, I feel like everyday is Halloween. That is because Claire is always dressed up and always asking for candy. I actually have more fun in the activities leading up to Halloween than I have on Halloween day. I love pumpkin patches and fall festivals. Always lots of fun. We had 2 pretty pink girls this year!

7 Months Old!

Her hair is getting so long!

Shelby is 7 months old now! Hard to believe. This past month has FLOWN by. We have been out of town a lot and staying busy with our normal routine. Shelby hasn't hit any major milestones this month. We are still waiting on some bottom teeth to pop through and for some improvement on sleep habits :) She is still very sweet and loves to be entertained by her big sister. Honestly, I don't know how anyone else keeps her stimulated without Claire here. She is a great eater and likes mum-mums & puffs. As soon as she gets some teeth, I will let her have some more table food. We have all had a great month and are looking forward to Halloween!

Pumpkin Patch

It is really hard to get a picture of two kids, much less four!

The water pump for the duck race.

Of course, Claire only raced pink ducks!

Her legs were a little to short for the tricycles.

The pig race.

The wagon ride to the pumpkin patch.

Lee and Mary

I LOVE this picture!

Claire and her pumpkin.

We went to South Carolina this past weekend to visit the Harkins. We haven't been there in over a year. It was a really long car ride and Shelby fussed a good bit of the way (5 hrs!). But, once we got there, we had a blast. We got to go to a pumpkin patch on Saturday. It was great! It was pretty small but had well thought out activities. I got some great pictures (which is why I posted so many) because the lighting was perfect. Claire was so excited to get 'the Littlest Pumpkin'. She has a book about that and was determined to find it. Shelby enjoyed being carried around outside and eating the hay. We love spending time with the whole Harkins family so much.

Halloween is in the Air!

Claire and Shelby modeling their new matching Halloween shirts.

Sweet sisters. Claire was getting leaves out of Shelby's hands before she could eat them.

Shelby got a little tired at the end.
