Costume Sneak Peek

Nick decided to throw a monkey wrench into my halloween plans this year and pick out Ella's costume. I guess that's what I get for not ordering her costume on time. There's always next year. I remember the days when Nick had no opinion whatsoever. Oh how I miss those days. When Ella came along, so did his opinions. But I gotta hand it to him...he did a SUPER job! We let her wear the costume (minus the bodysuit, leggings and wings) around the house tonight after she took a bath. The child refuses to wear bows and hats, so I was impressed that she actually kept the hood on. I'm pretty sure she is the cutest bumble bee on the planet! We can't wait to take her trick or treating Saturday night. Stay tuned for more pics.

Lunch With The Girls & Baby Parker

I took Ella to get her flu shot this morning and then we met the girls at Tropical Smoothie Cafe' for lunch. It was nice visiting with Liz and Parker. He is such a sweetie and pretty much slept the entire time. He will be 4 weeks old tomorrow. Ella also slept right through lunch, which was also her nap time. Next Monday we are having lunch at Liz's house. Can't wait!

Pittman Turns 3!!

This past Saturday we headed to Cleveland to celebrate Pittman's 3rd Birthday. The party was at Little Green Acres and the weather was perfect. The kids rode the train, played on the swingset, and decorated pumpkins for their party favor. Ella had a blast and loved petting the animals too!
Happy Birthday Pittman!!

Cove Play Date

Today was a great day to play outside. Ella has 5 teeth coming in, so we've been doing whatever it takes to keep her busy. There is never a dull moment in our cove. When we all moved here there were no kids in the picture. Now there are 6 kids between us. Ella runs around like a wild woman outside and loves playing with the big kids. The scary part is that she's not afraid of anything so you have to watch her like a hawk. She will literally kick and scream when it's time to go inside...not a pretty sight. Too bad I don't have a picture of that.

My sweet Daddy bought Ella this romper.

She tried so hard to go up the slide backwards.

She was almost there.

Daddy had to give her a push

A Day At The Farm

The Sunday before we left to go on vacation we took Ella to Cedar Hill Farm. We made plans to go with the Crews Family the weekend before but it rained (big shocker). It ended up being a gorgeous day! Ella enjoyed the hayride, feeding the animals, riding the pony, and watching the pig races! She even got to pick out her own pumpkin. Enjoy the pictures!
