My kids were sooo very excited about Halloween this year. It was fun as a parent to experience for the first time. Yes, they have been trick or treating before, but now that Aubrie is approaching 4 so many things are actually like firsts to her b/c she actually knows what's going on! So in honor of the day, they both like twinks, wore matching shirts all over town!
That night, Aubrie could hardly contain her excitement. We had to do fairy makeup and fairy hair! She was so stinking cute! I had a blast too getting her all fairied up!
Everett wants to do everything his big sister does. So - he had to wear eyeshadow too! Luckily it worked out with his costume. He also had a black tooth, but you couldn't really see it in any pictures. He was so excited about the candy! He LOVED it!
Here is your enjoyable kid story for the day. Everett is starting to potty train...can you hear the trumpets sounding when I said that? He actually is instigating it this time - amazing! He tells me when he needs to go, and it's always a mad dash to a bathroom. This weekend he needed to go at a store. I have never in my life been around a little boy potty training, nor a little boy in a public restroom. Good lord, it's nothing like little girls and it's HARD! I got him on the potty - it's not easy to get the boys' junk pointed in the right direction with his hands not touching the potty! We had success and he went, however it shot right out the toilet crack, down his pull up, and all over my knee. So for the rest of the day, I had pee knee, but I didn't care! My baby is going to be out of diapers soon! It's worth pee knee anyday!
Since you've seen Ethel Edith I also thought I would share my favorite parts of my house with you as well. I have a different style than most. I love bold colors and you'll see that throughout my home. I also have a new love of anything rusty. It's kind of an industrial look I've been pulled to lately. I have noticed I have a lot of gray or silverish pieces in my house lately - weird since I'm drawn to color, but all the same I'm digging the new look a lot!
Oh - this is Trudie. She says hi and thanks for reading! You'll learn more about this hot beast later!
