Halloween 2011

Halloween was definitely a new experience the year. Carsen and Chloe had a blast. We decided a few weeks back that they would be Tinker Bell and Peter Pan. Chloe has been a little obsessed with Tinker Bell lately and Carsen watches the movie over and over. He even asked if Preston could dress up as Captain Hook. It was a little to late to get a costume together but we dress up next year for sure. We started out the night by carving our pumpkins. I have to say this was my first time to carve a pumpkin by myself. It looked like a 2 year old did it (not cute at all). Travis took much pride in his pumpkin and of course Preston went over the top with his creation. It was a lot of family fun. Chloe and Carsen did not like the icky seeds and goo inside the pumpkins. So they weren't much help. After we placed our pumpkins on the front porch we headed off trick or treating. Carsen and his BFF Cole were the two cutest boys EVER!!!! They held hands as they went house to house with Chloe following right behind them. It was an awesome night. We finished the evening going over to my sister Myssy's house to share some candy. Im looking forward to many more Halloweens.

Chloe's Sesame Street 2nd Birthday Party

I blinked and now she's 2.
Good times, good friends and good food. OOH... did I mention Elmo came by for a visit for his favorite girl Chloe? Heee did and Chloe was totally smitten. I think I hit the nail on the head for my precious little girl. Her party was AMAZING! We are truly blessed with so many family and friends who make our lives complete.

My awesome and talented sister Mary painted the "Street Scene" for photo ops.

We had sliders, hot dogs, veggie/dip cups, fruit skewers , cupcakes, and cookies.
