A few weeks ago, William had his buddies Daniel & Mason over to play. All of the sudden I noticed that it was a little too quiet (never a good thing!). I began to look around the house for them & finally noticed that the door to Olivia's bedroom was closed. This is what I found! You can't tell from the pictures very well, but William's face is covered in makeup. They thought it was absolutely hilarious... I guess even little boys like to play beauty parlor now & then.

I can't believe our sweet "Janie girl" is two. CRAZY!!! She seems so much more grown up to me at this age than her brother & sister did. She is a spitfire & is so full of life. She talks non-stop & keeps us really busy! She is really strong-willed & definitely holds her own with her brother & sister. We love her spunky personality... Nate & I are already worried about what she's going to be like as a teenager! Her current likes are:
- Minnie Mouse & "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse"
- Winnie the "foo"
- William: She loves to wrestle with him & thinks he is hilarious. No one can make her laugh like him.
- Tomatoes: Seriously the only thing she ever wants to eat.
- Swedish Fish: She's her daddy's girl
- Books: Especially "Goodnight Moon" & "10 Monkeys on the Bed"
- Her monkey feet p.j.'s
- Grandma "Nina"
- Her bottle: Not proud of this one, but this girl will NOT take a sippy cup. I know, I know... It's got to go! I am taking suggestions of how to get rid of it.
- The phrase "Oh Yeah"
Happy birthday, Lyla Jane! We all love you so much & can't imagine our worlds without you. You make our home so fun!
Halloween 2010 was crazy as usual! We definitely got our money's worth out of the kids' costumes...both grandma's parties, trunk-or-treat, school parades & parties, & 2 birthday parties all led up to the big night. William was so into Halloween this year! Holidays just keep getting better & better as my kids get older. While I admit that I was glad when the last trick-or-treater came, we all had a great time!
A "Punk" Witch (emphasis on the "punk". Liv was very clear on this matter!)
Minnie - We thought it was only fitting since Lyla Jane is currently OBSESSED!

Liv ran in the school Jog-a-Thon. It is always fun to see all of the students running through our neighborhood. I was so proud of her this year because she actually ran...Last year she "wasn't into running" as she put it & walked the whole way with her teacher (I think she came in dead last for the first graders). I had to laugh & couldn't argue with her because I hate running too!
She also lost her other front tooth...Just in time for Christmas!!! She has been singing "All I want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth" ever since. She is quite proud of herself!

You can't have Fall without a trip to Gardener Village to see the witches... Or in our case, 3 trips! My kids look forward to this every year. They love to pick out their favorite witch. William, of course, loved the one using the outhouse (what is it with boys & potty humor?). I didn't end up with any pictures of Liv. I took her over UEA weekend... HUGE MISTAKE! It was so crowded you could barely move. Trying to take pictures would have heightened the state of crazy I was in!
