Thank You, Babs!

Our dear friend Barbara over in Babsland crocheted these booties and hat for sweet Corinne:



The hat is one we will grow into, but the booties are a daily wear kind of thing around here.



Thank you, Babs - you're the best!

Corinne and I Get the Svea Love

Happenings...

True to form, Svea has been easing into her role as big sister at her own pace, in her own style.

I love how she writes her sister's name:

(the bottom box says, "i Love you Corinne And MoM." Awwww.)

I love how she reads to her so I can shower:


(even though Corinne is not looking at her, deep down she's listening)



In the meantime, Henry has started basketball...


...which he would probably tell you makes him a better big brother.
I agree.

Halloween 2010

Halloween was actually a lot of fun this year. I say "actually" because in years past, I have not enjoyed myself. Even though candy was involved.

This year, Henry and Svea were so creative with their costumes and had a great time at all the weekend festivities.

First, there was Trunk or Treat and Svea was a Princess Fairy Ninja Cat. And if you asked her what she was, she would say, "PRINCESSFAIRYNINJACAT" in the tone of voice of "duh."







Henry was a ninja. Complete with ninja fighting skills:


The pair:



Corinne went as the sweetest pea in a pod:


Then on Halloween day, Corinne wore her Halloween sleeper for about 7 minutes. Then it was soiled and she wore something else. Story of our life.



Henry had a birthday party in the afternoon and went as a vampire:


After the party, it was time to Trick or Treat. Svea went as a princess with a Jasmine dress and tiara and Henry was something with vampire teeth. And a belt.

Hooray for Halloween 2010!
