Ending October

Look at that color! This is just a little peak into the weekend Eric and I got to spend together in Mentone. I have more pictures to come soon! Just thought I'd start it off with something so lovely and fallish.

We have had a lot of fun this fall letting Ellie experience the things that this season brings.

Like carving a pumpkin. Ellie really was not too happy about it. You see, she was just happily washing the dishes making a huge soap and water mess in the kitchen sink after helping me bake and was not happy when we quit to go out and do the pumpkin.

But, once she saw her daddy's enthusiasm and serious pumpkin carving skills, her mood lightened up a bit...!

We also got to go to a costume party with our playgroup. Here, Ellie is hanging with little Walker.

Us moms were really optimistic thinking we could pile up all the kids on the couch for a group picture. Ellie thought this process was quite funny.

Ellie also got to experience lots of interesting little things that came to the door for candy.

Kelly, Drew, and Marley came over to get in on the good times.

It's amazing how happy  a dum dum can make a child.

Getting in some skyping time with Grammy.

What does a monkey say?

Surprisingly, Ellie was a little timid about the kids coming to the door. So, she and Harvey took it in from inside the doorway.

Drew trying to chorrale the monkey and lady bug.

Ellie ended the night skyping with her "cousin" (Drew & Kel's niece) Amanda all the way over in Japan. Ellie was enthralled by her and had to crawl up as close as she could get to the screen. By this point, she had ditched the monkey outfit. She wore it all night and was so timid about the people who came by, but once she took it off, leaving only a shirt, shoes, and a diaper, she became the welcome committee. She ran out the door to see people (strangers) several times in this get up. In the cold. Who knows what those people were thinking... Oh well.
We had such a fun week with Ellie. So much more of her personality pours out everyday. She brings so much sunshine to this home!
