Aunt Lulu's birthday dinner and the pumpkin patch

Gracie took this one and I love it!

OK, let me explain why there are several doubles on this post... I had trouble loading my pics. They were not showing up, so I would repost them and as I finished the last load... they ALL showed up! ARGGGH! I have really had some trouble with posting lately! Anyway, I hope you enjoy! Christine, notice his adorable outfit?

Could his pants get ANY higher!?! Ha!

We decorated crowns, colored princess pictures, searched for Snow White's poison apple, and did the pinata. The kids had a big time and mommy went home exhausted!

This started out as a low-key party and just kept growing... there's always next year!

trial run...

I have been trying to post for a week, but I keep getting an error message. Now, our hard drive crashed and Harry stuck a new one in, but my photos were all on the old one. He is going to try to put them on the new one if he can save them! More soon I hope...

My little man

My future ladies man looking sharp in his hat!

Here is my "Big Girl"

Ready for a bra!?!?

Ok, so yesterday as I was getting dressed, Gracie hands me my shoes and pants, etc. She tells me, "Mommy, I need a bra too." I replied, "When you are a big girl you will get one." She thought for a minute and said, "But I am a big girl!" (Seeing as how she just turned 3 and we made SUCH a big deal about her being a "big girl", this makes perfect sense to both of us.) I explained, "Yes, you are such a big girl, but I mean when you are even bigger. Maybe around the time you turn 12." Gracie seemed satisfied and went to her room. A little while later she comes into the kitchen grinning proudly... "Mommy look! I opened this all by myself!" (She was holding a Barbie outfit she had received as a birthday gift.) I told her how proud I was and agreed that she was indeed a big girl. Her appropriate response?... "Can I have my bra now?"

How's that for logic?

After playing hard with the toys in the background which were not picked up yet, they took a break to watch a little video Nana brought over. Check out Ethan's "tat"! He is following in Uncle Harry's footsteps (OH NO!!)
Gracie decides she wants a hug from her cousin which starts out innocently enough...
Still laughing...
getting a little rough...
Not so much fun now!
That' it! I've had it! (Ethan said later, "We just huggin' Auntie Cole!"

Back to nice (for the moment)...
