Halloween...Hollaway Style

And Drue's latest "Cheetah Phase" continues. She started out wanting to be a police girl with straight hair. Although I preferred her pick something a little more cutesy girly, I held my tongue. A few days before Halloween when we went to get her costume, she changed her mind. And her cheetah dreams were realized. The shirt and pants are actually a real outfit from Kohl's . A tagless outfit, thankfully.
I'm not sure what inspired Reese's pick this year. From the time we first began talking about costumes, she wanted to be a ballerina. A black and white ballerina. Apparently my kids are rather specific and detail oriented. Nevermind that she's about as graceful as a bull in a china cabinet. (She is our child who literally can fall down while she's standing still). She made a beautiful ballerina. On a sidenote she loves buns now. Yes, the hairstyle. She asks for one almost everyday. Probably just to get out having to have curls, no doubt.
Ah....Tater. When I pulled the box of Fall decorations out he and his dinosaur costume from last year were reunited. And that's what he decided to be...again. Reese said, "Wow Tate! Way to save Mom some money!".
My little crew. I kept reminding them nicely that I had to take some pictures of them before they could start trick or treating. So they were eager to pose and smile pretty for the camera, so things would go faster for everybody.

Hayride Party

The girls' hayride birthday party was a success. We combined their party this year and had a hayride at Heritage Park one evening. (Which I highly recommend to anyone with a Fall birthday. Just schedule it through Johnson County Park & Rec. I honestly think I had as much fun as the girls.)
The weather was perfect. Only one friend for each of the girls couldn't make it. Everything ran smoothly. We had enough food. No one fell off the wagon. (These were all worries that I had.) The only less than ideal situation was when we were unloading all the decorations and supplies from the van and David opened the trunk, accidentally releasing all the helium filled balloons into the blue sky above.

Pumpkin Patch Look Back


What can I say? I am addicted to COMPARISON PICTURES!

This is Tate on the preschool pumpkin patch field trip in 2007-2009-2010. He went along on Reese's trip and Drue's trip, and this year...finally...his very own trip.

It is cute to see how shy he is when his sisters aren't around. He didn't want to run up with his friends. He wanted to stick right by my side and hold my hand most of the time.

Which, of course, was fine with me.
