Trick or Treat

We had a great time trick-or-treating tonight!


Molly has never been able to let go of her Halloween costume from her first Halloween.  And I have to admit...  although it's four sizes to small, she still looks just as cute in it as she did as a baby!

Fall is in the Air!

It is really feeling like Fall right now.  It's been cool during the days and downright cold at night.  I love it!  We've been having a lot of Fall fun!  This week, the kids decorated their pumpkins.  They are driving me crazy very excited about carving them tomorrow.

This week we got a visit from some of our family--including my brother Bob who lives in Hawaii.  It was so nice to get to see them!

Tonight we went to a Halloween party at the Wagners.

Happy Birthday Molly!

Our precious Molly is 4 years old.  Four?  Where does the time go?
Brian and I have been talking about how much fun Molly is right now.  She's old enough to have some independence but still thinks Mommy and Daddy know everything almost everything.  She is such a good big sister to Rayna.  And she's so smart!  She's doing so well at school and learning so much.  She loves her friends and is such a kind and caring little girl.  I just can't imagine our lives without her.
And somewhere on the other side of the world, there is a woman who is faced with that reality.  The reality of living everyday without her precious daughter.  I wish I had some way to tell her what a beautiful, smart, and loving little person her daughter is turning out to be.  I wish I had some way to tell her how much she is loved by so many people--how her sparkling little personality can light up a room.  I wish I had some way to thank her for the sacrifice she made for her baby girl--the baby girl that we share.

Happy birthday, my Sweet Princess!!
Molly's 1st Birthday
Molly's 2nd Birthday
Molly's 3rd Birthday
Molly's 4th Birthday
We did a Molly/Rayna combo party.  Molly wanted a princess birthday party so the girls dressed up like princesses and invited their friends over for snacks and cake.  One of Molly's friends even brought a pinata!  It was a fun time!

She was so loved and will be missed tremendously.
