Trick or Treat

Wanted to share these pics from Halloween night.  This was the first year that I think Everly’s eyes were truly opened to what Halloween and Trick-or-Treating is really all about.  After an early dinner and lots of anticipation all day, we bundled Ev up in layers and changed her into her pink princess/fairy/ballerina costume and ventured out into our neighborhood.

There were tricks, treats, and a few spooks along the way.  Everly loved seeing the other kids and parents in their costumes, and seeing all the houses that were decked out along St. Clair avenue (THE Halloween place in our neck of the woods).  She wasn’t even scared of the scary spook house and insisted we go back for one more spook before we headed in for the night.

After we got back, we let Ev choose one piece of candy to snack on.  The winner:  a grape Tootsie pop.  She had a blast and has been talking about it ever since.  We can’t wait to Trick-or-Treat next year with our TWO little girls!  Until then, we’re holding down the fort and waiting for Baby A to make an appearance.

Everly is two years and three months old, and I am 40 weeks and 5 days pregnant.

Love,

Pumpkin Picking at Rombachs Farm

These pictures are about a week or so old but better late than never, right?  We enjoyed some fun times and plenty of sunshine at Rombachs’ a few weekends ago.  Here are a few shots from our day…

See our pictures from last year’s pumpkin patch visit here and here.  And see Everly’s very first trip to the pumpkin patch here.  It’s amazing how much she’s grown! (sob) 🙂

I am just three days away from my due date on Halloween so we’ve been trying to wrap up loose ends at home and in the office.  While I’m extremely anxious to meet the little lady who keeps me up and night and likes to kick me throughout the day, I’m pretty content with letting her decide when her birthday will be.  So we’ll see… I’m not positive but I’m thinking this Halloween baby may be a November baby after all.

Love,
E

Trick or Treat

This little mischievous, woodland gnome was spotted in our garden on Monday night…

She was up to no good, as usual.  But we decided to keep her anyways.

And who would have thought that Trick-or-Treating would come so naturally to her?

The sneaky little bugger even talked us into letting her have some candy.

Those gnomes just always get their way…

Hope you had a Happy Halloween!  We sure did!

Love,
E (+ Marty & Everly)
