Halloween


Here are the pictures I promised. Sorry they aren't the best quality, I am not sure what happened. They are really grainy...I guess that is what I get when I use my regular camera now. Oh well, at least I tried! Halloween was fun this year. I wanted the kids to coordinate and I thought it would be really cute if Madelyn went as Raggedy Ann and Jackson as Andy but for the life of me I could not convince Madelyn to put on the Raggedy Ann costume. She wanted to be a cheerleader and so brother had to go as a football player, which I suppose is more fitting! They were really cute together! My grandma made Jackson's little football pants and I made him some shoulder pads (although he probably didn't need them) and Madelyn got the last ASU cheerleading uniform left in the state of Arizona (okay I am exaggerating a little but it was dang hard to get my hands on one!). But it was worth it in the end....she loved it. I hope all of you had a great time dressing up the kids and "sharing" their treats. By the way it is good to be back!

Adorable!! I love the "themed" costumes that go together though its getting increasingly difficult to convince my kids of it.
So can we arrange a night of survivor and chinese?

Okay, I LOVE Madelyn's smirk in the 4th one (3rd in the column)! It screams, "Okay, are we done yet, Mom? Put the camera away and let me have at the candy." I know that expression all to well. Bella has actually injured my face by pushing the camera into it while screaming, "Stop it, Mom! Stop taking my 'pitcher!'"

Madelyn looks so pretty - it has got to scare you to think of the attention she is going to attract as a teenager.

Hopefully she will be socially awkward until she is about 20!!

mandee, madelyn is sooooo beautiful! oh my gosh. anyway, i think it is cute that they both have the exact same color of hair. i guess we missed the summer visit we were supposed to have, huh? i hope that didn't come across blaming - i have been far too busy. but it was a nice thought!

Misty...I know I am sorry. You would think if would be way easier now that I am living this close but it seems as if life is full of things that keep us from doing what we want!! I hope it will be soon though..!!!

okay so really, the prettiest kids ever! I can't believe how stunning Madelyin is. I'm praying for her to be a little weird...you know...like Carter had some influence on her before you up and left me... or else you're going to be in big trouble with that one. I love those kids. I miss them.
