Nani and Grandpa Visit

We welcomed Nani and Grandpa back to South Carolina this weekend and the kids couldn't have been more excited. Max literally didn't leave Grandpa's side and was beyond thrilled when their Sunday night flight got cancelled due to the bad weather in the Midwest. We shared an early Thanksgiving meal, toured our town, and had a relaxing time. Can't wait till the holidays next month to do it all over again!

Pictures from Our Everyday Life

The 16 month old who refuses to sit in his booster seat for longer than 5 minutes. 

Violet invited a friend from preschool over last Friday for a playdate. Piper was happy to join us for lunch and princess dress-up. 

One afternoon last week after naps, I sent Violet and Max to get a snack for themselves. Violet came back with carrot sticks and Max came back with smarties. Go figure.

My attempt at her requests for braids, buns, princess do's and more. 

We sold off one of our very first purchases as a "couple" (and by the far the comfiest couch I've ever laid on) this past week. We are turning the rarely used sitting room/den into a homework/craft room for the kids. 

An early morning Ninja Turtles play session with Daddy before work. The boys loved it.

I adore my quiet mornings with this guy during the week. 

Happy Monday, friends and family!

Halloween Festivities

Our bumble bee with pink shoes.

Violet's preschool had a fall festival where they got to dress up in their Halloween costumes and play carnival games. Teddy and me got to come and help run some of the games. Violet adored showing us around her school and I loved seeing her and her little classmates.

Elisabeth, our neighbor and Violet's buddy

For the most part, Teddy stayed in the stroller and munched on candy. 

Trick-or-treating with the neighbors.

Monkey boy

A perfect depiction of Max and Katherine. She's giving a sweet curtsy and he wants nothing to do with this photo. Too cool already, I guess! 

Violet's last minute costume change to Rapunzel - pretty much based on Elisabeth's choice. Luckily, we had a dress and crown in possession.

Shortly after this, both Max and Violet complained their buckets were too heavy to carry. A sign it was time to head home!

Even though he didn't do any of the leg work, he sure enjoyed the fruits of his brother and sister's labor!
