Fogotten Files and a Poll

First off, many of these deserve their own post, but we all know that's not going to happen...

The squirrels have been ravaging local pumpkins. My friend Lindsay took matters into her own hands and actually attempted to disarm one of these sneaky vermin by launching a punkin chunkin attack- unfortunately the squirrel community at large remains committed to gutting all pumpkins in the greater Dearborn community.
Please disregard the trash cans in the background and enjoy the lovely girls frolicking in fall foliage.

Every mom in Michigan knows what this is: the penny pony ride conveniently located past the cash registers, right outside the reeking can recycling center in Meijer. Ellie was thrilled with her "horsey ride" meanwhile I was trying real  hard to not lose my lunch from the fumes...

Ellie's preschool Halloween party. We made mud cake and monsters for the kids to take home. Ellie is the purple princess on the end (obviously... she was a different kind of princess for every Halloween event we attended). Ev is wearing Ellie's costume from 2 years ago.

I took a sick day a couple of weeks ago and we watched Harry Potter (per Ellie's request. No seriously). I just had to document this moment: that is a pure Ellie outfit. She would dress that way everyday if the weather was nice enough/Pigs flew and I allowed it.

This day Ellie was a vampire princess for Halloween.
The actual day! Trick or treating in the frigid weather. The other people are our dear friends the Pences. We saw the most amazing house- the picture doesn't capture its awesomeness. The people who live there spend two weeks shooting cobwebs all over the place with hot glue gun attached to an air compressor.

My wreath. I love it. Also, I made some silhouettes for the front window.

Ev enjoying her first birthday present from Auntie Shell.

The Thankful Tree from Ellie's preschool. Ellie said she is thankful for her family and dolls.

Secondly, we find out whether we're adding a Ron or Evangeline to our family the week after Thanksgiving. Care to put in your guess?


  1. RON!!! And I love that Ellie was a different princess each event.

  2. Wow your girls are so cute. I can't believe Ev is one already! I vote for Evangeline because I love the name, so cute.

  3. Hoping for Ron to join the family!

  4. I can't handle how cute your girls are. It blows me away! I so wish I knew them. And I'm voting Evangeline...I can see you with all girlies! Can't wait to find out though!

  5. Your girls are adorable! My guess is girl. Can't wait to find out. Oh and you better come say hi if you are ever in Kirtland. I'll even come meet you. We live 20mins away!
