Our beautiful and talented friend Hannah, of Stayner Photography, kindly offered to take pictures of our beautiful baby Eden. Despite having her hands full with a toddler and a new baby of her own, she took the time to capture some of the most enchanting shots I have ever witnessed. I literally cried when I saw these pictures.
Edie was being pretty stingy with the smiles. This was about the only one of her smiling and of course she was covering her face...little stinker.
My friend Chelsea has a picture just like this that I love so we copied her pose...
Hannah even took some pictures of our Indie. They are priceless.
This is by far my favorite picture. Indie literally lunged at Eden to give her a huge hug and Hannah caught it at the perfect moment. I think this picture portrays Indie's feelings for Eden of pure love.
Do you remember when Tony's dream of becoming an Olympic Speed Skater became a reality?
Well another dream recently came true...
I milked a cow.
I know what your thinking, we are really shooting for the stars with dreams of speed skating and cow milking, but for some odd reason I have always wanted to try my hand at it. So as luck would have it there was a pretty maid at the county fair ready for milking.
Let me just tell you, milking a cow is much harder than it looks. The lady had to keep helping me.
The look on my face says it all.
I guess I can check that off my life's to-do list.
Halloween came and went in a flash...I can't believe it's already November. So without further ado:
The Princess and The Pea
Eden was a little pea pod (click here to see Indie in the same costume only chubbier two years ago) and Indie was a lady bug on Friday (I didn't get any pictures) and Cinderella on Saturday. We could not, for the life of us, get a decent picture of the two of them together so then we opted for individual photos.
Keeping with tradition we visited my dad at his office and then went to lunch at the delicious cafe nearby on Friday afternoon. Later that evening the girls and I met Tony at school for a party with the P.A.'s and their families. Good times, especially because I really like a lot of Tony's friends and their wives. After the party we headed to Kim's so she could see the kids.
On the actual day of Halloween the girls and I chilled out and Tony spent it at the library, as that is his new Saturday activity. We really love weekends around our house when tests fall on a Monday. Anyways we visited my grandparents and then had a low key evening at home. I'm not sure Indie grasps the whole Halloween idea yet. She did however love wearing her Cinderella dress all day long.
Pictures in their cute Halloween shirts, and again, we couldn't get a decent one. We did manage to get several funny ones.
