Halloween & Other Celebrations

Halloween was too much fun for the family. We're widdling down the candy supply and coming off a week long sugar high. Bradley has the whole family on Harry Potter patrol and talked Emmy into going as Hermione Granger and Steven and I took the easy (ahem, lazy) road and went as "muggles" - this actually means we didn't need to dress up. Here are pictures of Bradley's long, dyed hair (since been buzzed and rinsed back to blonde) and Emmy with her crimped hair (I'm very proud she was so willing to sit still for me!). I'm also happy I was able to make their costumes again this year. I know they'll soon think it's not cool to have your mom make your costume. Until then, I'll take full advantage.






Little Hermione....


Mr. Potter...


And my favorite and most magical of them all....


As for other such celebrations, the cat's out of the bag....at least it's peaking it's head out of the bag. We're very excited to announce to everyone that we're expecting a baby. I'm only 12 weeks along, but we were dying to share the news. Thanks to everyone that found out earlier than the rest. We appreciate you keeping our precious secret until we were ready to tell all. Here are some t-shirts the kids and I made to announce to family and friends.






I know there somewhat difficult to read, but they say: I'm going to be a big brother/sister. Then on the back of Bradley's it says: AGAIN. While the back of Emmy's says: FINALLY!

CONGRATULATIONS you guys! That is so exciting - we don't make pregnancies public until 12 weeks either so when it finally comes out, we are FULL of excitement. Will baby #3 be born in Texas? The Halloween photos are adorable - love it all.

I don' t know if it's just my browser, but the photos are loaded oddly. Anyway, we should know within a month if our newest member will be a true Texan or not.

Your kids ARE so cute Mindy. Emmy was such a pretty baby, and such a beautiful little girl. (I had some weird posting problems with my Halloween post to, maybe blogger just doesn't like Halloween... just kidding of course (=

I'm so happy for you! So THAT'S why Steven wanted to see how we fit 3 carseats into the backseat of our car! Ha ha, I'm so clueless.

I have been waiting for those Halloween pictures! But I must admit that I also wanted to see you as Dumbledore and Steven as Snape.:) Step it up next time (like I can talk). That is so funny that Bradley even wanted to die his hair. It reminds me of when he stepped into our house and declared, "I am totally into Harry Potter!"

Can't wait to see Mickelson baby #3. You make such cute babies!

Hey Moopus (and Steven),
Congratulations. I can't believe you are going to have three kids! Are we old enough for that? I guess I should start thinking about it... or maybe not! I hope you end up moving closer to Utah. The last time I saw you was right before you moved to Texas and Amelia was ready to pop out. It is crazy how fast time flies.
Love, Shananigan
