More pics from the photoshoot

These are just a few more of my favorite shots from Aidan's photoshoot with Mandy.

I love how these 2 pics capture her personality.

You know you're tired when....

You reach for your Pantene Pro-v Curls Spray Gel and instead spray your hair repeatedly with air freshener from Hobby Lobby. I now smell like Harvest Home. Here's a little secret about air freshener, not so good for the curls. That's a little bit of free advice for you.

Anna and Chris

Ben's still dealing with the fact that his baby sister isn't 7 anymore.

Ben's sister Anna and her boyfriend Chris got engaged this weekend in Ft. Worth. Chris and Anna have known each other their whole lives and he proposed at their home church in front of the whole family.

Well I think we know why Chris has been working so hard.

Future Flower Girl

We took a last minute trip to Ft. Worth this weekend because Ben's sister Anna was getting engaged! Ben's mom called us last week to give us the heads up and we got to be there for all the excitement. We bought a new camera and I'm going to have to figure out how to upload pictures from it before I can post all of the engagement pictures when I get back home. Including her beautiful ring, which can be seen from space.

Meanwhile this is one of the GORGEOUS pictures that Mandy took of Aidan last week. I highly recommend you book her for your holiday photo shoot before she's all booked up.

A paci in the mouth is worth 2 in the hands..

Here's the thing Aidan. It starts off with a paci and then you move onto a blankie and then some sort of stuffed animal and then I have to start sewing the tattered remains of your blankie into your pants so you can go to school without crying. Which means I have to learn how to sew. And before you know it you're 33 and living in our basement. And we don't have a basement, which means we'll have to buy a new house, which we won't be able to afford because of the thousands of dollars we spent on pacis. And then what will happen? You need a paci bailout.

Stickerless but smiling

I was going to post a picture of Aidan wearing an "I Voted" sticker on this exciting day, but I guess they ran out. That's okay we had a great time voting anyway. Aidan was so cute and kept saying hi to everyone as I was filling out my ballot. So no sticker, but still a fun day.

Somebody owes me a sticker!

Belated Halloween Post

Our little Dorothy Gale had a great 2nd Halloween, even if I did eat most of her loot. We continued our tradition of partying with the Stansberry's. We always have so much fun, even 3 Halloweens ago when I had the worst morning sickness of my entire pregnancy. This year I actually got to eat Mandy's yummy chili and I didn't have to run to the bathroom 20 times an hour. Although Lucas did almost make me pee my pants. But it's not like it's that hard to do now that I've had a baby. What? Let's keep things honest around here.

Aidan loves her red sparkly shoes.

Ballerina Viv!

The girls played really well together.

Vivian really got into her role as a ballerina!

Ben and I went as The Office Season 2 Jim and Pam. We realized later that Kelly dressed up as Dorothy that season so we really coordinated more than we thought.

I had 3 years of practice as a receptionist. I'm a method actor.

Bunny Carol and Magician Matt

Prego Aubs and Witchy Casey (she's really nice in real life)

Calvin and Hobbes Chris and 80's tourist Anna Jane. Poor Chris was mad because his hair turned out green instead of yellow.

Riz was a sparkly Twilight vampire and Matt and Mandy were a couple I couldn't guess at first although Ben and Lucas got it right away. I am really sad that I don't have more pictures of Matt in his wig. Everyone should have a picture of Matt in that wig. We missed you mommy Olivia!
