Fall Festival

We went to the Fall Festival at our church and Kate was a "sunk". She got a little stage fright in front of people but at home when you ask her what a skunk does she pinches her little nose and yells "P U". I like how the costume makes her face look chunky and baby-like.

Comparing size, I have to say I'm glad that the pumpkin is larger

This is Lily Kate with her YaYa (Stephanie). There's a love there that will be fun to watch grow. LK is excited about "YaYa's baby ah-biver" (Oliver) who is due 3 weeks before our Charlotte.

What a fun, happy day


This picture is from a few months ago, but Parks and I were just talking over dinner tonight about the pure joy that Lily Kate experiences on a daily basis and how much it adds to our lives to get to experience that with her... she's a keeper!

Showing me up...

So, as I left the house today I was struck by the contrast of how cute Lily Kate's outfit was and how schleppy mine was. Come on, look at the ribbon on the bottom of her jeans and her swingy little sweater coat. (both from Nona - thanks Mom!) I, on the other hand, have fallen into a habit of putting on gym clothes in the morning (yes, to go to the actual gym) and then leaving them on all day. I'm having visions of Clinton and Stacy from "What not to wear" telling me I've let myself go.....

These are from my friend, Stephanie's shower that we had last weekend. Her son and our daughter will be about 3 weeks apart - how fun! I know I'm going to get harassed for not looking pregnant in the pic below. I keep getting asked for a belly shot and I finally put a full body shot on here and the combination of the print on the shirt and the leaning back, yada, yada, yada. I'll take one soon - I promise.

We swung by Slice of Life last night to get some dinner. From Lily Kate's response you would have thought we stopped by the circus. She was so thrilled, she kept yelling out "PIZZA" while they were making our dinner.

"oh my, I LOVE pizza". Really, though this is what she did when I told her to make a silly face. I stuck out my tongue to give her an example and this is her version of being crazy.

Pumpkin patch playgroup

This is Lily Kate with her friend, Crawford. She loves him and he is just as excited about her. What are these two doing, posing for prom?!

This picture above is from story time, deep in thought. In the one below she is collecting "pumpkins" with goodies inside.
