Some things about Annalise lately:  She is very into playing pretend.  She likes to be the mom and then I'm the grandma.  Nice.

She is very in to throwing fits.  She throws some major fits.  She likes things just a certain way and if things aren't done the way she likes, watch out.  Or if her clothes are not on her in the way that she likes, watch out.  Or if she wants something and you say no. . . watch out.

She no longer easily takes naps (hasn't really since we took the passi away.  So I'm paying for that). She will take a nap if I lay with her till she falls asleep, but usually she'll just keep getting up and out of bed and I'll have to put her back in bed over and over until the window of nap time is gone.  So I sometimes lay with her and sometimes I just let her stay up.  Depends on when she can go to bed that night. 

She's talking a lot more and I'm understanding more of what she's saying.  And her little personality is the cutest and we all just love her!!

Forgotten photos

Sometime in October I took these pictures.  And I forgot about them.  Until now.   And I'm so glad i found them.  This was right when summer was still trying to hold on to October.  But now fall and even some chilly winter mornings have taken over.  Which I'm glad about.  Except for I'm not glad about the darkness.  The total darkness at 5:00 is not the best. 

But what IS the best are these pictures of Leesie with her cheeto fingers and cheeto faces.

Trick or treating!

Trick or treating highlights:

Sweet baby Lyla came with us and we all loved that!
Lots and lots and lots of CANDY.
Leesie loved saying trick or treating and running up to doors.
We had so much fun with all our friends that we went with.
Jace and his friend Anna, who was Hermione (Hermione and a Dementor, unlikely friends haha) spent the whole time walking and chatting together, which was pretty cute.
Liv was so funny with her reactions to the different kinds of candy she got.
Cam was the Spam.
We loved it!
