Under the Sea: Halloween 2011

Our Christmas tree has been up for almost two weeks so I figured it was about time to recap our fall festivities before I'm too busy vacuuming pine needles off the carpet.
Sebastian the crab, Flounder and Ariel the Little Mermaid

I'm signing her up for drama lessons

She gets way serious when she sings. She thinks she sounds good. I encourage it. She's got a holiday performance at school in a couple weeks and her class is singing Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. When I picked her up from school today, her teacher told me that Maryn was leading the class and teaching them the words to the song.

Look at that booty

Thank you O'Flanagan's for these adorable outfits! They have gotten lots of wear this fall!!

And just as tiny tempers were beginning to get testy with their mothers persistent for a fall photo shoot, the mailman delivered Halloween treats from Nanny and Poppop! Whatchu get sissy?

...and sucking the cheeks off of fuzzy headed jack-o-lanterns!

It was actually cold here for a couple days last month

Red hair extension...she's up on current trends

Second year in a row winning the neighborhood costume contest. I told her she only won because of the booty!

We had college friends visiting for the weekend. Whit and Mac are fraternity brothers and he recently moved from Chicago to Charlotte with his wife Erin and their BEAUTIFUL daughter, Abby! We had such a great time with them and hope to take advantage of our 3 hr distance.

Is Abby not the cutest thing...those eyes!!???

Pumpkin hunting with Poppop and Grandma

No child was harmed

'The Heisman'

O.k. fine, his ego was harmed, but he'll get over it.

She's laughing now but how soon she forgets!

singing again, and again, and again.

This is classic Benham. Just a chill sort of kid.

He's chill but is quick with the hair grabbing!

I think he saw a ghost here.

First 'field trip'

jump pillow

This little girl climbed those tower of stairs and slid down the slide all by herself about 10 times.

Little man turns 8 months old tomorrow and that means he'll be a year old in 4 months.
