Happy Halloween

Tonight, Adelyn attended her first Halloween party as a UK cheerleader. Can I just say how much I love a free costume! Can I also tell you how incredibly difficult it is to get a decent picture of Adelyn.

Seriously! The kid is easily distracted,

doesn't hold still,

or look at the camera.

She's just generally difficult when it comes to picture taking.

But I guess if she always smiled then I'd never get a picture of this face...

And really, what is this face? I know you might not be that amused, but it cracks me up!

Oh well, no matter what face she's making she'll always be the cutest cheerleader I've ever seen!

Skeleton Face

For the past month or so a skeleton similar to this one has been hanging out in our Home Goods. Every time we walk by it Adelyn asks "What dat is, mommy?"

One day at lunch Adelyn started making this really funny and kind of scary face. When I asked her what she was doing she said "I make skeleton face!" I don't think she knows it's supposed to be scary.

Mimi & Grandpa just had to get in on the skeleton face fun...
Some kids never grow up. ;)

I Scream, You Scream...

We All Scream for Ice Cream!

On Saturday we had a family party for Adelyn. I didn't do the best job of taking pictures of everyone or everything, but here's what we did get...

These pictures are proof that Adelyn does have "girl" toys.
Can you guess who gave her the tutu & jewelry?

I know this one is kind of blurry but I had to use it. I love it so much!

Happy Birthday Adelyn!

Today, Adelyn turned 2!

I think it's safe to say that she had a pretty great day.

We couldn't pull her away from her new Tidmouth Sheds...

 except to eat cake and ice cream! 

I can not believe how fast these two years have flown by! Adelyn brings more joy to our lives than we could have ever imagined. We feel humbled and blessed that the Lord chose us to be the mommy and daddy of such an amazing little girl. From her wonderful sense of humor to her love for Jesus and bible stories we are constantly in awe of her. Matt is her hero and his coming home is the highlight of her day. I love being her best friend and partner in crime. The three of us together is her favorite thing. What a sweet girl she is!

Happy Birthday, Adelyn! We love you so very much!

The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

This weekend Matt & I headed to NYC to take in the sights, shows, and eat as much food as possible. We had lunch in Columbus Circle,
ran into this famous couple in Times Square,
(they are real people by the way and not wax figures)

walked across the Brooklyn Bridge,

explored the Upper West Side,
(who can tell me what movie this Brown Stone is from?)

and ate a Gray's Papaya hot dog.

We also went to see Wicked which was wonderful, took a leisurely stroll through Central Park, and ran into 2 different sets of friends - one couple I went to high school with and some friends from Lexington. Small world, huh!

We had a great time and highly recommend the Red Cat restaurant in Chelsea. What was Adelyn up to? She went on a self declared "vacation to Gigi's house".

Daddy's Little Helper

It's hard to believe the 2 years ago today this was my post. And today...we have the sprinkler whisperer on our hands.
