Happy Birthday Evie

Evie turned two earlier this month.
We had a very small, happy celebration at home after church.
Mom was still in town and she made the cake while we all napped.
Then the kids watched while I made frosting and put it on the cake (pink, Evie's favorite).

We sure love this little sweetheart!

visitor from Utah: mom

The Sunday after McKay was born my mom flew into town.
It's always good to see her, but it's extra good when you're trying to recuperate physically from having a baby and mentally trying to wrap your head around having three kids.

She stayed two and a half weeks.
We mostly did normal around the house stuff.
Plus had electricians and plumbers in on the bonus room project.
And we did throw in a shopping trip, park, mexican food, and an aquarium visit.

And then she went home.
Saying goodbye would have been a whole lot harder if we weren't heading out to Utah in a little bit to see everyone.
But it was still hard.

Halloween was a good one.
We had a fire fighter and a lady bug.

people in our neighborhood make a party of trick-or-treating

several streets gather at fire pits in circles and just sit in camp chairs handing out candy

then parents drive their kids around on their golf carts

sticky sugar!!!!
