We got the house

Just a quick update to let you know we got the house!!! We close on the 29th of November. This is all going by so quickly. I can't wait to move and get painting. Luckily we don't have a lot that needs to be done. The inspection is on Saturday...I'll be sure to take the camera and post some pictures.

On another note Mallory has been running a fever since Tuesday. I haven't taken her to the dr yet because I want it to weed itself out. She doesn't have a runny nose or a cough...just a fever. If she isn't better by tomorrow then we'll go to the dr.

We are leaving on Wednesday to go to Portland, OR for Thanksgiving. It's our 1st plane ride w/ Mallory so I'm a little nervous. At least we are leaving in the evening so I hope she will sleep most of the time. Thats it for now. Sorry no pictures this time.

Fruits of my labor

I thought this picture was funny because it looks like she is pulling the remote out of her neather reagion

This picture is for Aunt Lala...her new bibs. They are so cute. I had to sinch the straps up so the pant legs wouldn't drag. She has plenty of room to grow in them.

Back view

The fruits of my labor....this is a hat I crochet to match Mallory's winter coat. After trying many different patterns I finally figured out this on. It is so cute. Josh is trying to talk me into making a bunch and selling them online...I haven't taken to the idea yet but I'm still throwing it around.

Close up

Well we have made an offer on a house in Liberty. We will find out on Friday if the deal has gone through. Keep us in your prayers and we will keep you posted on the news.

Happy Halloween

Mallory was a Lady Bug Fairy this Halloween...I must say she was quite a hit.
Mom and Mal at playgroup on Tuesday.

We had 3 kids out sick on Tuesday so the group wasn't quite as big.
L to R: Mallory - Lady Bug, Ethan - Joe from Blue's Clues, Preston - Dinosaur, Oliver - Sheriff

Mad fairies cast mad spells. This was our attempt to get them to stand in front of the fireplace. It's hard to keep four 1 year olds in one we sat them on the couch.

After literaly 3 minutes on the couch the kids were ready to get down.

Tuesday night we carved Mal's pumpkin...I am de-gutting.

Mal thought she would try out the pumpkin...didn't think it was too tasty. She ate a couple of raw pumpkin seeds w/out us knowing till they were 1/2 chewed up.

She loves the sit n' spin we stole from Janie. She is getting pretty good at it.

Dad is showing off the finishing touches...I de-gutted and he carved. Funny story, Josh set the carving knives on top of Nana's van...we're talking a butcher knife and a paring knife. Nana had to take Aunt B shopping and they drove off w/ the knives on top of the car. They found one after they got home (which I think freaked Becca out...she thought some one was out to get her)...but the butcher knife wasn't there. Nana said she heard something fall off the van on 291. I'm sure we gave someone a fright on Halloween Eve...a butcher knife falling off a van.

On Wednesday we went to Elizabeth and Brett's for a Halloween Party. It was lots of fun...lots kids running around.
Eli was a ghost for Halloween. Isn't he cute.

The back of Mal's cute.

All the kids.

We went trick or treating on the Liberty square. There were some cute and funny costumes.

A walking pumpkin...Mallory was in awe

Eore and Pooh (adult size).

Going down the street for MORE candy. She was so funny she chatted the whole time between houses. She would go up to the door and bang on it then try to open it. She wanted candy bad.

We had a really great Halloween. Mallory had so much fun getting candy...even though she can't eat 1/2 of it. She wouldn't even let me hold her bucket when it started getting too heavy for her. It's amazing how independent she has gotten in the last year. Happy Halloween everyone!!!
