4th Quarter Recap... Long post

Here is our fourth quarter recap, which could also be called the longest post ever!
Ava was Barbie Rapunzel for Halloween. Or at least this is what she told us she wanted to be for Halloween, and the costume she wore to our church carnival. Steven and I were gone to El Dorado for my good friend Shep's wedding - so we missed most of the Halloween festivities. However, I was told that Ava was Tinkerbell for Haley's school carnival, and Supergirl for trick - or- treating.! I think her Rapunzel braid was to heavy for her to carry around! Ha! For those of you that know Ava - EVERYDAY is Halloween to her, she is a dress up girl, and is usually always naked by the time Steven gets home from work.

Peaches made Reece a cute Halloween dress - this was her costume! Since we were gone and she goes to be at the crack of dawn I did not get her a costume. Truth is, Halloween is not a big deal at our house, but Reece was still cute and still festive. My mom kept the girls while we were at the wedding and she said Reece loved the trick or treaters - she would get so excited when they came to the door!
This is one of my best friends Sarah Shepherd Rainwater - isn't she such a beautiful bride! This is how Steven and I spent our Halloween weekend and it was perfect. We had a great weekend in El Dorado!
Ava's school put on a darling Thanksgiving program. It was sooo cute. No surprise, but we could hear Ava singing over all the other kids! She is quite a mess - but a cute mess!

These were their Turkey Masks!

In December we went to our town's Christmas parade. It was sooo cold, but the girls really enjoyed themselves!

This is Ava's friend Ella - she is such a doll!

And Haley (my sister) and Ava made a very impressive gingerbread house. I am sorry I don't have a picture of the final product. It was very creative.
I just found these pictures of "Supergirl" trick or treating that my friend Jody had e-mailed to me. I don't know how to put them with the rest of the Halloween pics with out messing everything up!

Now I can move onto 2010! Finally!!!

I can't believe how much Ava has grown! You have SUCH beautiful daughters. I can't wait! Six more weeks! I've had a good pregnancy, so no complaints. We will have to catch up through the blog world ;) I'm glad you found me!

Peaches said...

Now I can sleep better at night knowing your blog is no longer so dated!!!! Thanks for the update and the promise of staying current. I know your life is so busy, but the pictures and stories are precious - you need to share them with the blog world!!! I love you all.

I grew up with Sarah Shepard in El Dorado back in the elementary days. :) With her being a year older than me, I always thought she was "SO COOL". Random coincidence too...her husband was my ride to Kanakuk one summer when we both worked at kamp. Such a small world.

Your girls are precious and getting so big!
