6 weeks

Seriously, where is the time going? It's only been 6 weeks, yet it seems like she has been here for forever. The last 2 weeks have been rough with Carter being sick, Char had a fever off and on, and then I got strep throat. Now that we are getting over that, things are starting to get back to normal!

Happy Halloween!

We decided a couple weeks ago to have a Halloween party with some of Carter's friends and cousins. When I woke up yesterday and was rushing to get everything set up, I had two crying children. I thought, "this party was a bad idea!" So I called my sister Wendy and she and my mom came to the rescue to help me get things set up! The weather was perfect outside and I think everyone had a great time. Carter told me later that it was the best Halloween party ever.

1. Charlotte enjoying the party in her new Halloween dress. Do you love it as much as I do? I made it the day before for the party for her.
2. We decorated cookies
3. We painted pumpkins
4. We dressed up as mummies
5. We decorated Halloween shapes (spiders, cats, bats, etc)
6. We ate lots of good food! We had pumpkin shaped sandwiches, cupcakes, caramel toffee dip with cinammon sugar chips, candy corn pudding, halloween marshmellows and oreos, carrots and slime dip, and slime punch with floating ice hands in it!

(not pictured--making some really cute ghosts. take a styrofoam cup, draw a ghost face on it, heat oven to 350 degrees and place cup in there for less than a minute--watch it melt into a cool ghostly shape!)

4 weeks old? and a mission? What?!

Sean's nephew Tanner is leaving today to serve a mission for our church in the Belgium, Brussels Mission and will be speaking Dutch! Tanner was only 9 years old when I started dating Sean. It's hard to believe he is old enough for a mission!Charlotte made her first debut at the zoo last week and did fabulous!
She is becoming quite the chunky monkey. I can't believe she will be 5 weeks old on Friday. How is that possible?
Carter LOVES being a big brother and is such a big helper. The other day he was holding her and singing to her, "I'm your big brother, I love you." I wish I would have caught it on video.
Time goes by so fast, I barely even have time to take a shower these days!
