Big Halloween parade in the neighborhood today! The Hello Kitties had a great time marching with their friends and eating lots of cookies. Unfortunately Keira stuck stickers on her face yesterday that were worse than bandaids trying to get them off her face, so she didn't have much makeup on today.
Yay how fun was trick or treat!! Keira, Caileigh & John got all dressed up and went out in the cold knocking on houses anc collecting candy. Keira made it about an hour but JOhn said that was because he carried her most of the way! She came back got warm and handed out candy with me while Caileigh stayed out for another hour. She enjoyed her "nets" aka raisinets. Caileigh brought home lots of chocolate and had a great time!
Check up day for the girls! Poor things both got 3 shots each and cried and cried! Caileigh grew 4 inches and gained 5 pounds since last year! Wahoo - her first growth spurt!! Keira only gained 7 ounces since her 18 month appointment but she sure feels heavier. Other than that great checks ups for the girls!
Keira is our resident "stink bug" spotter. It doesn't matter where they are - ceiling, lights, floor, bathroom .. she spots them a mile away and says "MINK BUG!!" and comes running to me to kill them. Pretty funny!
She and Caileigh are really having fun together- Keira will only wear what Caileigh is wearing unless I can convince her that its pink or really really cute. Unfortunately I don't have alot of matching outfits so they wear alot of the same tnings!
Caileigh is a little mother of course and makes sure if Keira is not behaving "properly" or doing what she is supposed to do! Keira loves it and doesn't hesitate to say NO! all.the.time. We're hoping that turns to "YES" soon!
To my Caileigh Cecelia, you are as sweet as you were when you were born. Loving, kind, funny, cautious, shy, concerned, helpful and giving and the light of our family! I hope the next 5 years are as fun as the first 5!
Its party day! Breakfast was fun with all the kids and then Caileigh went off to gymnastics. Jack stayed behind and helped me to get everything ready. We were blessed with a fantastic day weather wise again and so grateful that everyone came and celebrated with us. She has enough clothes to keep her in new outfits for months !
