Nora was our cute little flapper. I made this costume for Mylie back when she was about this age. It was great to get to use it again! And Nora looked darling in it, too, of course!
Bennett had the wild idea to be a granny this year. He looked so funny! When I looked at him from behind, I honestly felt like he was a completely different person. At the school's Halloween parade that day, his costume was a SMASH, (except a lot of people referred to him as a girl...He did look a little girly with his big blue eyes and the female attire.)
Mylie also looked completely different as Annie. It was a change not having her dress as something super girly, and frilly. The wig changed her look completely!
Coy's BAYMAX costume was my 100% DIY for the year.
Here's a look back to when Bennett turned 10. (Since I am so behind on here, as of today he is now 10 and a half.) I am truly amazed at what a wonderful young man he is becoming. He is such a good boy and a great big brother. He is getting so helpful to me...which I am finding is very nice! He continues to LOVE books and reading, playing the piano, basketball, soccer, running, writing, and is also an amazing little singer. He joined his school choir this year and really enjoys it.
As usual, he mostly wanted books for his birthday! He got the final Janitors book as well as the latest Michael Vey...and others, but I can't remember which ones.
Bennett's not a huge fan of cake, so we mixed it up this year and made an Oreo ice cream cake. It turned out really yummy.
We did the traditional Halloween/Fall finger foods again this year. We don't do it every year, but have done it quite a few times now on his birthday.
Opening presents. Mylie made him the birthday crown to wear. He was a good sport and wore it most the night :)
Later the banner fell down and this is what it said all on it's own. "BARPHDAY"--We thought it was kind of funny.
We had a Halloween movie night as well that night after most the guests went home. Bennett's friend, Ben and his cousin, Symon stayed and watched it with us. It was a pretty fun night!
I am so behind on here....and in everything else in my life. Here are pictures of my kids from October. They have yet to make it on my walls. My walls are still pretty bare here. Someday I will get all my projects and decorating done. But until then, I will just enjoy all the little things each day!
I've been married to Russell for 14 years. We've been blessed with four beautiful children! I absolutely love being a mom and spending time with my family every day. I take way too many pictures because time just goes by way too fast and I love capturing all those special, fleeting moments!
