It's a party...

I never knew that having a girl would be this much fun.
Ella set up this little tea party all by herself this morning. She invited all her friends.
It was too cute for words.

My latest...

Zoe's baptism dress. I was really nervous making this dress...
but I think it turned out pretty good.

Crazy , Busy, Fun, Halloween weekend...

We started our fun with a craft project with Great-Grandma Phillips.
She helped the boys make Mummy's for their teachers.

Grandma Kathy was there too and colored pictures with Ella.

We had family pictures scheduled with the whole Knudsen gang.
This was an out fit check photo...

Ella wore curlers over night to prepare for the pictures. When I got her up in the morning and asked her how she slept, she replied "ouch".

Time for the real fun... Dinner at Grandma & Grandpa Knudsen's house with all the cousins.

We took lots and lots of fun cousin pictures.

Ella was having a really girly girl attitude... We finally settled on a picture on the tractor.

My four scary monsters.

Hunter and Kayley, a perfect match.

Ella loves Aunt Jody. She makes everything better.

Halloween morning before school.

We visited Grant's class

and watched the Halloween parade.

We visited Hunter's class

and helped with his Halloween party.

Ella thought she was just one of the kids.

James had a fun party at his school too. He loves teacher Jill.

James and Grant went to a Halloween party at the Fischer's house.

They had tons of fun with their friends.

Then it was time for trick or treating. Our first stop was Grandma and Grandpa Knudsen's house. Then we went around the neighborhood. Next stop was Great grandma Phillips's house for dinner. The kids were so tired when we got there, they shed their costumes before I could get my camera out. Halloween at Grandma Phillips's house was what I remember as a child, so it is fun for me to watch my kids enjoy that same tradition.
It was a Crazy, Busy, Fun Halloween Weekend. Can't wait till next year...
