Fall Fun with Leaves and Costumes

Fall is a fun time of the year! I just love all of the colors that the leaves turn! It's also a great time to wear things you can't normally! I got to wear my bright pink pants and old ice skating outfits!

Cory took this pictures of us. We were in the Union Square Park.
October 30th Bee dressed up as a butterfly! She was going to be a cow but decided that she was afraid of it but then she spent a few days after Halloween trying to convince herself she wasn't scared but she still didn't want to wear it! She would go up the costume, pet it and say "nice cow." Bee was in the face of being afraid of things. She was most afraid of a scary Halloween mannequin in the grocery store. She would say things like..."I'm afraid" or "eyes." When she said "eyes" she would close her eyes and want me to carry her past the scary things! Two year olds are cute!

Karoline, Dalia, Annie and Bee

Bee sat next to a "cat" and I couldn't tell if she was just liking petting the costume or if she was trying to convince herself that it was a nice cat. It took Bee a while to warm up at the costume party because of all the costumes! She wasn't quite sure what to do!

My little Bee turned into a butterfly!

The OctoberMoms group of 2008 got together for our annual birthday bash! We held it the day before Halloween this year so we could have another excuse to dress our kids up! In this picture we were trying to get all of the kids in it! Super hard.
While everyone was taking pictures of the kids I went around to the other side to take a picture of everybody! There were more adults that kids! It is always fun to get together with the other familes! Lots of the other moms have or or soon going to have their second baby! Just in case you were wondering...we would like another kid...not now...much later...end of story!

I love my butterfly!

For Halloween our Friends Michelle and Scott had a circus themed party! So, I made Bee a clown costume! I was an acrobat and Cory was the Ringleader.

Bee doing her lonely clown impression!
Michelle the mime, Scott the lion tamer, and Edgar the lion! Michelle made this awesome set that she put out in front of her stoop! Lots of pictures were taken of her house that day by lots of people. Here is one link to a blog that has one of the pictures. After all the candy was gone Michelle and Cory performed for an hour! Michelle was a mime and Cory was a...? Let's just say that he had that ball that Michelle is sitting on, on his head. I'll post a pic another time.

Bee loved trick-or-treating! This past week she kept asking to do it again! Bee doesn't eat the candy but she is really good at collecting it! Bee's friend Claire in this picture is a piece of grilled tofu! There were soooo many amazing costumes! One favorite that I saw was two kids were subway cars complete with working lights!

B-zo the clown!

When we got home Bee starting acting really silly! She had so much fun she didn't want to take her costume off! I still don't think she really understands what a clown is but she did have fun! She likes tutus and fun socks at least!

For my birthday Mimi and Papa sent a package of goodies! My Father-in-law Lyle makes THE best cookies!!! He make me fig oatmeal cookies! In the package was some fun stuff for Bee! Thank you Mimi and Papa!!!

Mimi sent Bee some more jewelry to add to her collection! In this picture Bee has every necklace and bracelet we could find in her toys!
Just recently Bee discovered that she loves duplos! Mimi sent her duplos that used to belong to Cory! Both Cory and Bee played with them for hours! They also sent Bee some Richard Scarry books! I had a Richard Scarry book when I was a kid that I just loved! I'm trying to find it for Bee but I have found out that Richard Scarry wrote a ton of books!
Nana Jill and Papa Robert sent Bee an ABC book by Richard Scarry. My dad remembers reading me an ABC book that I just loved so he was hoping it was the one I was looking for! It was not the book I have stuck in my head but it is a wonderful book that I love! Thank you! Just about the only clues I can remember for the book I'm looking for is that it was the large size book and lowly worm is hidden on every page!
I babysit Dalia's every Monday so the girls do lots of activities with each other! Here they are having fun with red paint!

I love leaf pictures! Bee has fun in the leaves too! She like me to bury her legs and she likes to make a big pile of leaves to jump in!

It was a beautiful day! I wish fall lasted longer! Here Bee is playing hide and seek with Cory. But all she enjoyed doing was counting by the tree!

It was my 30th birthday today! Thanks to facebook it seems that everyone remembered! Thanks facebook and thanks everyone for all of he happy birthday wishes!!! I
I am truly blessed to have such great family and friends! Thank you everyone! Thank you God!
