Halloween was a lot of fun this year. Whitney dressed up as a bumble bee and went trick or treating in the neighborhood. We had family and friends over for chili and had a great time. The neighborhood was full of many cute kids. There was a whole hive of bees and they were all buzzing around. The next night was Halloween for the big kids. David and I dressed up as a tree hugging hippy and a tree. David came up with the idea and I have to say it turned out to be a pretty good one. Whitney went to Mimi's for a sleepover and David and I headed down the street for the party-not returning until MUCH too late!! Overall a great time!!

Where oh where did October Go??

Once again I am so far behind the eight ball and another month has come and gone-actually now we are half way through November. October was a fun and busy month. A trip to the pumpkin patch with daycare, my birthday, fire truck fun, Halloween and many other random busy days. Whitney is growing so much and is starting to really talk up a storm. She is really picking up on things quickly. We sneeze and she says "Bless you", she knows some shapes, colors and numbers, she recognizes friends and family in pictures and will point say their names, she can pretty well tell us what it is she it wanting. Within the last few days, whenever she stubs a toe or finger she says "kiss" to make it better. The commands to Maddie (whom she now calls Maddie Girl) have increased-sit, stay, stop, NO NO NO, eat, come-and Maddie just lays there and takes it all in. She is so much fun these days and we are looking forward to the holidays!! She even regonizes and says Santa whenever we see a Santa Clause.
