My Matching Girls

So... Bella and Ivy's Grandma sent them some money for their birthday and I told Bella she could pick out something for each of them or something to share... So, she chose Barbies for each of them and matching dresses. They look so cute! Thanks Grandma Sue!

Bella's Birthday!

Well.. our little Bella is growing up. She just turned 4. Can you believe it. We had a fun day. We went to the library, to dad's work, to McDonald's for lunch (of course), and to High School Musical 3- just Bella, mom and dad. (Mom and Dad enjoyed the movie more than Bella) Later we came back to the house and ate dinner with Grandma and Grandpa Haslam and then opened presents. She got awesome puzzles, dress ups, a Castle tent, a ballerina barbie (to go w/ her Ballerina dress ups) and a doctor kit. It was a great day!

Halloween....Yes, we were all Snow White

You guess it... We all had to play dress up. I actually was pretty excited about us all being Snow White. Brad was going to be the prince (of course) but instead he sat on his royal white throne at home... being sick all night. We had a fun trunk or treat at the church and Grandma Haslam joined us for the fun night.
Bella showed her true nature that night, though... She loved going from car to car getting candy and kept wanting to go to more and more cars. Then, she saw Grandma handing out candy and she thought that would be fun, too. So she took over handing out the candy and really enjoyed it. Then we left the church and drove home. We decided to go around to a few neighbor's homes to trick or treat. We went to three different houses and each time a neighbor answered the door, she said trick or treat, but then pulled out one of her candies to give to the neighbor instead of them giving to her. It touched me how thoughtful and giving she is. We are truly blessed to have her.
