Last night, we had our Friends in Faith Halloween party. It was supposed to be Friday night, but we had to move it to Sunday because of the never-ending rain! The party was SO much fun. When I got Ellie up from her nap, she was saying, "No cupcake, mommy!" So, we didn't even try to get her to wear the beloved cupcake costume. She went as a Mississippi State cheerleader and had a blast. Thanks to Kelly and Austin for hosting the party...I am sure that everyone had as much fun as we did!

Papaw Jack had cupcakes just for Ellie. She took her costume off as fast as she could to eat the cupcake.

After our second house, she was ready to go home. Enough trick-or-treating for one night!!! I guess it was a success that she actually wore part of the costume to 2 houses!!!

We bribed her with candy....

We bribed her with candy to put the entire costume on for a picture!!! This was the biggest costume disaster ever! I will know from now on not to put so much time and energy into something she WON'T wear!!!

Halloween Party

Brian and I spent HOURS making the cutest cupcake costume for Ellie. As we were getting dressed for our party last night, she would have NO part of it. She did not want to put the costume on at all. She went to her dress up rack and pulled out this head piece and was ready to go. So much for the cupcake! We will try again for trick-or-treating!

Pumpkin Patch

Last Saturday, we took a little trip to the Pumpkin Patch. Ellie loved feeding the goats. Her mouth would get big and she would yell, "Moy!" (more) We had a great day!

We're Back....

We know we have not been the best bloggers lately...but there is a reason! Ellie and Charley would like you to know that they are going to have a new brother/sister in April! Their mommy (writer of the blog) has not been feeling too spiffy for the last 14 weeks! We are excited about our new little addition to the family. We will find out the Tuesday before Thanksgiving if it is a boy or a girl. We are very blessed.

Avery's Birthday Party

Today, Ellie got to go to Avery's 4th Birthday party. It was a ballerina party and she had a blast. She was by far the youngest child there, but I do think she had the most fun! The bigger girls would get a little timid and shy...not Ellie. She had nothing to lose! What a fun day.

First Day of School

Friday was Ellie's first day of school. I did not get any cute pictures of her at school, because they wanted everyone to drop off quickly. I was so busy trying to drop off quickly and not cry, that I completely forgot to sign her in!! Oh well...probably won't be the last time. She wasn't happy that her baby didn't get to go to school with her. She yelled all the way there, "Baby school. Baby school!" She had a great day. Her teacher said that she was sweet and had a blast. When I walked in the door, there was a cute little boy sound asleep on her nap mat. They said that halfway through nap he got up and joined her. She was sweet and let him stay! Brian wasn't sure how he felt about that!

MDO Open House

On Tuesday, we went to Ellie's Mother's Day out for Open House. She got to meet her teachers and see all of her new friends. It was such sweet little place and I am thankful that they will love and take care of her on Fridays! I took these pictures of her on the porch before we left to meet Brian.
