Halloween 2011

What? I'm only a month behind. Sheesh!

Nathaniel--Optimus Prime from Transformers; he wasn't going to dress up, but then at the last minute he asked me to dig this out.

Daniel--Winnie the Pooh; he has taken a sudden liking to all things Winnie the Pooh lately

Emily--ballerina (of course!); I made that skirt for her at a craft activity

Jonathan--Thomas the Tank Engine; he kept trying to take the costume off, but once he started collecting candy he was fine with it! :-)

Andrew--Batman! again :-)


The kids had a great time Trick or Treating with Daddy while I stayed home to man the door. I was a little worried about Trick or Treating in our neighborhood because there aren't many young children near us, but it was wonderful! The kids got a ton of candy, and I gave away all the candy I had purchased. Happy (late) Halloween!

Family Portraits 2011

The week we did the portraits this year was crazy! I had to get the outfits together and cut everyone's hair--I'm the only one who didn't get a hair cut. We went to Portrait Innovations again. It was weird to go to the studio and not need to bring a stroller. Daniel was much more cooperative this year (we did bribe him by promising to take him to Stevi B's pizza buffet afterwards), but Jonathan was pretty ornery about the whole thing even though he still looks adorable. I'm pretty happy with the pictures, all things considered. Here they are:
