halloween horror!!!

this halloween we attended our annual halloween party at a friend of ours. it was really fun, tons of kids and lots of delicious foods! i really slacked this year on bryce's halloween costume, and had to then rush out last second and pick her up something. brian wasn't too thrilled with the final outcome, but he had to admit she looked pretty cute! here are some pics from the party. most of them are of her on the move....she is really getting tough to take a picture of these days....she either won't smile, won't look at the camera, or puts her hand out for us to give her the camera....anyway, here's what we got...


sporting bed head hair and our pre-halloween jammies!!!!

typical, doesn't want to sit still two seconds for us to take a picture to document...

one of bryce's play date buddies, shelby. poor shelby just wasn't moving fast enough for bryce's liking...

so serious, looking for pumpkins!

hangin' with my pals sam and shelby! bryce and sam have a love/hate relationship. they'll be loving on each other one second and then bopping each other on the head the next second.



eyeing the big boys! she followed them around the whole night as if she was one of them!!! no fear, this girl!

finally....

it's FINALLY fall here in the sunshine state! we are absolutely LOVING it! no longer do we get drenched in sweat just walking to the mailbox! we've enjoyed playing outside, especially in the mornings and evenings! here are some pics of us enjoying the beautiful weather and some others that i thought were just too cute to leave out....








{what do you think about bryce's one eyed smile!!! not sure where that comes from or what it's about, but it's pretty funny! we say, 'bryce, say cheese,' and that's what we get in return!!!! who knows, we don't ask questions!!! ha!}

face time for mom and dad....

brian and i always talk about how we don't have many pictures of us with bryce, usually our pics are only of her. so, we were all dressed up to go to a friends house and decided to have a little photo shoot. these days it's hard to get a good pic of bryce cause she either wants to hold the camera or she's trying to wiggle out of our arms to get down or by the time the camera takes the pic she's moved onto something else! oh well, here's what we got!





love her!!

mom's day out...

so, bryce has officially completed three days of mom's day out. she goes every friday from 8:30 to 12:30. she eats lunch there and then we come home for a nap. she absolutely loves going to 'school' and playing with all the big kids. they accept kids from walking to age 3, and bryce loves to follow around all the big boys, she doesn't have time for kids her own age! ha! even though she loves to go, it is SOOOOO hard to get her up and at em' and out the door without a HUGE meltdown. here are some pics of bryce going to 'school'...

here come the tears...
oh yes, the meltdown has begun, and let me remind you, it is for no reason, or at least brian and i have no idea why this keeps happening, HELP...

my poor baby...

the lady is pissed!!!!

and, as fast as it came, it is now GONE!!!! WHAT, WHY!!!???? who knows, but she's a cutie and we love her!!!

playing at mom's day out
{they split their time in two rooms, this is where they eat their snacks and lunch and when we come to pick them up this is where they are all waiting for us, the other room has more toys and things for them to do}

here are a few of her 'friends'
each week the number of kids vary, especially since it's summer
{bryce has grown especially attached to the lady on the left who is sitting in the chair, but we're bummed b/c she is a para for a local elementary and is going back once school starts, so sad!}

so proud of herself!!!

continuing with her chair obsession!

time to go!
picking up our lunch box!!!!

love this sweet girl, meltdowns and all!!!!
we are so proud of our little lady!! she is turning into such a big girl!!!
BTW...she cries now, when we pick her up to go home!! do we take that as a compliment that we've raised an independent child who likes be self suffiecient and play well with others or as an insult that she now has to hang with us, and only us!!! ha!!

tulsa part 2...

here are some more pics from our tulsa trip...
up bright and early with granny who was our guest of honor the night before!

bryce had so many visitors during the trip. brian and i were so thankful for our family who came into town to help us watch bryce while we were busy with reunion stuff...bryce got spoiled during their visit, one of her gifts was a sweet teddy bear from her gigi and gg-pa...


she also got the cutest book from her great aunt sondra, she plays with the book daily! it's so sweet, i love it!!


hanging with aunt molly!

sporting her new 'crooked' smile!

here she is again with the 'crooked' smile, not quite sure what's up with this!!

one of the days for the reunion, we met at the park on riverside to hang with other families. this was the coolest park, they had all sorts of water activities, which bryce loved, but we weren't too prepared for the day, so we improvised...







thank you again to all our family and friends who came to visit! we love you guys sooooooo much and miss you already! remember, florida is a wonderful vacation site and our guest room is always ready!!! :) love ya'll!!
