From the beginning of November--One day Truman asked to eat lunch outside-- After it was all said and done I was happy to not have to clean the floor!Tyler has been "juicing" his breakfast and lunch and let the girls try some. They love carrot/beet/sweet potato juice and the red mustaches are just a bonus!

As usual, we had multiple opportunities to dress up this year so we had a rotating cast of characters. The costume that everyone fought over was the purple sparkly witch so we made a schedule of who was going to wear what for each occasion. Somehow no one ended up wearing it on actual Halloween night! I think this was the third year in a row that Brooklee was Minnie Mouse. As I was putting Halloween stuff away the girls wanted more pictures since I had only taken them on actual Halloween. There's the costume everyone fought over. The main draw was the light-up skirt, which didn't actually work. Adriel (above) and Dallyn (below) were very specific on how they wanted to pose. On Halloween night as we were getting ready to go out we had bats flying around our house! We hadn't seen them before and haven't seen them since but the kids thought it was pretty cool!

When I come in Truman's room to get him out of his crib he's usually a little cranky. He's mostly disappointed that I'm not Daddy or Pappy. He rolls over a couple of times until he stands up to allow me to get him out. I think I made it even worse on his birthday by saying "Happy Birthday Truman, you're two!" He didn't like that. "No birfday! No two!" He learned to like a birfday when he got a slice of pizza for lunch and ice cream for dessert. But he still won't respond when you ask him how old he is.He does usually wear pants but I thought his tan was cute in these pictures. The construction birthday cake was fun to make. I think Truman even blew out the candle, although this picture is making me wonder. Again pantless! He loves new toy, thanks Grandmama & Pappy!

The girls are loosing teeth like crazy these days!Adriel has the cutest lisp right now--we were at a library program last week and she kept trying to say "snakeskin". The best part is that she thinks it's funny when she can't say something right. I think her total tooth loss count is six. Dallyn and Brooklee have both lost just one tooth each. No one believes in the tooth fairy anymore so when we forget to put money under their pillows we can't pass the buck anymore! Also they are really into coloring in these princess coloring books we have. Every princess that I find around the house has a mark in her mouth to show her lost tooth. This is how I found Dallyn's dresser yesterday when she left for school.

The girls are SIX!! I tried to convince them otherwise, but Chuck E Cheese was their choice for a family birthday party. We were so lucky to have Grandmama, Pappy, Mackenzie, Beau and the Olsens join us for lunch and cake. It actually was pretty fun and not as gross as I'd expected. All those tickets and all we got was 5 fun dips? That's a lot of cupcake pops for two kindergarten classes! Dallyn got to sit in Ms. Campana's chair while her class sang to her. Tyler wasn't coming home until late on the actual birthday, Adriel was at a friend's house and Truman was napping. It was kinda fun to open presents with just Brooklee, Dallyn and me! Brooklee had been asking to get her ears pierced so that was one of her gifts! She was so brave that Dallyn decided to get hers done as well. She was a little nervous and since she usually cries when I just comb her hair I wasn't sure if it was a good idea. The girls at Claire's were so thorough about choosing the spot to pierce. When I expressed concerns about Dallyn they decided to double-team her. No tears or sreams from either girl! Dallyn as cute colorful flowers and Brooklee has Hello Kitty. Such big girls!
