Happy Halloween!!

Callie has had a fun month of Halloween "firsts". Callie participated in her first Monmouth Meadows (our neighborhood) Halloween parade. Callie and her friend Ashley rode in the wagon while the big girls pulled them up the hill. It was so cute!!
Callie even won 2nd place in the costume contest!!
Callie also had her first Halloween party at school! She wore her pretty Halloween dress to celebrate the occasion!!
Mommy and Daddy made special Halloween cupcakes to share with Callie's friends!
For Halloween, Callie dressed up as a flower.

The costume worked out well because it has lots of padding to cushion Callie's fall when she ran, yes I said ran, from house to house!!

Callie practiced saying "Trick or Treat" all day, but once out doing the real thing, she only said "more" and "open", maybe next year she will be more polite!!

Pumpkin Patch!!

It was a beautiful weekend in Maryland and we decided to make our trip to the Pumpkin Patch. Grandpa was in for the second year in a row to join in the fun!! Aunt Britty also was in for the adventure!

Callie had a little more fun this year walking around and picking out a pumpkin almost as big as she is!!

For fun, we wanted to show a picture from this year at the same place as last year to remind us how far she has come in a year! It was definitely a fun change to have to chase after her this year!!

1, 2, 3 swing! One of Callie's favorite games!

Callie enjoyed picking the pretty orange flowers!
We also got out Callie's wagon this weekend! She (and Mommy!!) really enjoyed taking a ride in it! Last week was a rough one, Callie's first real cold followed immediately by her first ear infection. Mommy was away at a conference for three days, so Daddy had to stay home and take care of Callie. We are so lucky to have such a great Daddy!! We were a little worried because she really didn't eat much at all last week and lost 1/2 a pound-when you are already underweight, that is a lot! But luckily, she is back to herself this weekend and ate more than we have ever seen her eat today! So, it seems that she is starting to make up for it! We just hope this isn't a sign of what this winter is going to be like having a baby in daycare!
