Carly and Jonah

I know that not everyone thinks that pictures of Carly are as fun as I do, so I have decided to add a fake script of what Carly might have been saying when we met up with the Conoly's for lunch last weekend. Don't expect anything witty. I'm not witty.

Carly: Why are you grabbing my shirt, Jonah?

Carly: Mom, why is he grabbing my shirt?

Carly: Hi, Baby Jonah. You're so cute. I love babies. You know, since I'm not a baby anymore. Babies don't look sassy with their hands on their hip like I do.

Carly: Come on, Jonah. You can come home with me.

On another note: Carly is not a fan of ice cream.

Halloween Fun

Halloween - Short, sweet and to the point.

Pumpkin patch in Lantana was AWESOME.
Great scenery to take pictures (can't tell by my pictures, though)

$5 for each adult got you admission and a train ride.

Surprise! Carly LOVED the train ride.

I carved a pumpkin. It's an owl that later fell IN to the pumpkin.
Surprise! Carly didn't like getting her hands dirty.

We tried to take a family picture - this was the best. Boo for me not opening my eyes.

Carly was a peacock. I made the costume.
I wish I had used a blue shirt instead.
The feathers in the skirt got tucked under and you can't see them very well.
Carly cried in all the pictures she took with me.
Surprise! Daddy got big smiles.
and so did Sara.
Did I mention she cried in the pictures with me?
We had some cute neighbor friends stop by.

And these are just some cute pictures I took of Carly that night.

Surprise! She opened her mouth for Lola's kisses.
I actually got cute pig tails in her hair!
Yes, her hair is long and there is a lot of it, but the hair on the top of her head is shorter and hard to pull back.

She uses her tippy-toes a LOT.

November To-Do's

Check. Check. Check.

That's the sound of me checking off my October to-do list.

You saw the post about me trying the Pumpkin Spice Late and making my wreath. Soon you will see the pictures of the new weather stripping my husband installed on the door to the garage - yes, I am still counting that one!

I didn't make a new blog header (obviously), but I have researched some digital scrapbooking software and I plan to order some this month. Let's make that task my "if I get to it task" for November as well.

I like this monthly to-do list. I have even started making to-do lists for my weekends (though I am not as good about completing those).

Here is my November To-Do List.
You may find some of the tasks to be a little more time-consuming...Yup, go me!
1. Organize my digital photos, including updating my digital picture frame.
2. Clean out master bedroom, bathroom and closet from top to bottom.
And if I get a little redecorating done while I'm at it, so be it. Anyone know where I can find some modern-looking quilts (Freddy is opposed to comforters)?
3. Fix/Replace the broken blinds in our bedroom and the ones in the kitchen that Lola chewed and ripped apart.
4. Do something new, cool and fun with Miss Carly D.
So, there you have it. Hold me accountable, friends.
