Random and Halloween Pics!

I'm sitting here with the sweetest 10 week old just watching me from her bouncer. : )
So we didn't buy candy this year for Halloween. The girls had gone trick-o-treating the previous day at the little downtown area in our town and there may be a chance that we just used the candy from their stash to hand out to trick-o-treaters. : )

So Brynn totally has the ability to be potty trained!! I discovered this, with my dear mom's help, and she went 3 days successfully with only one accident (while at a friends house and I totally forgot to remind her). Only problem is: mommy is too lazy to do it. I gave up. : ( I now know she can do it but its just TOO much work for me right now, having to remind her, take her, make sure she goes before we go somewhere, etc. So she could do it but her mommy isn't ready. : )

So I was out with Brook and Brynn and Brynn had been begging me for a drink all morning. Unfortunately, I had left her sippy at home but no matter how many times I informed her of this she just kept asking. Finally, I had had enough and after I fed Brooke her bottle, I gave the leftover bottle (of breastmilk) to Brynn to drink! I told her this was all I had, thinking no way would she drink it. I was wrong, she drank the rest up! Is that terrible!?

I know what you're thinking, mother of year right here. Right?

So Bella is totally into rhyming right now. She loves telling me words that she discovers that rhyme, and she's pretty accurate.

Brynn saves her BMs for nap time and bed time everyday. I've tried having her sit on the potty, holding off until she does her business (but then she gets to bed WAY late) and nothing works. I don't want to punish her of course but I feel like its her way of putting off bedtime. Any ideas?!

K, was that random enough for you!? : ) Now time for cute picture overload!

Phew, this weekend exhausted me! The girls got the opportunity to trick-o-treat 3 times. Although Bella could have kept going and going. This year was fun because Bella got really into it and understood things better. She even insisted on picking out her own costume.
Both girls wanted to be princesses. I know, shocking. Bella wanted to be Cinderella and Brynn wanted to be Aurora. Luckily, we already had each of those in our dress up collection! Here are some pics from our 3 trick-o-treating outings!

My pretty Cinderella
She was so tickled to have her hair curled.

Her parade at school.
They sang us a couple of songs, it was SO cute.

Trick-o-treating in our little downtown .

We ran into lots of friends, including Kelsey Hannah Montana.
We met up with two of Bella's preschool friend's families.
Our little bear was quite the trooper! Just snuggled in daddy's arms and watched the happenings.
Then our neighborhood trick-o-treating was 1-5 so we went out with our neighbors.
Brynn was trilled to have her hair curled like her big sis too!

Brynn didn't want a pic with our neighbors. : (
Little Bear slept through the whole thing. : )
They had a blast running door to door!
This one was done pretty quickly though!
Then that night we went to our good friend's neighborhood where trick-o-treating was 4-8 so the kiddos could go out together.
It was much cooler so we got bundled up!
Our buddies Avi, Anderson, and Ellie came shortly after this pic.

Once again our little bear was a trooper, and slept through it all again.
Here's the whole clan!
What a great, exhausting Halloween!
