Happy Halloween!

So we are a little late on the Halloween post. Ezra had a couple costume options. I had bought a cowboy costume last  year on clearance. But, mistakenly I bought Emerson's size, not his. With some alterations it could work. He was as cute as can be and he seemed gun ho on being a cowboy. His other option was a spider man costume we had for dress-up. I was more weary of Emerson who had started to not like dress-up because it was "itchy," and told me she wanted to dress up as herself for Halloween. So I put all my efforts into convincing her that her fairy costume was awesome.

I even looked up fairy face painting online and we came up with this. I added shimmer eye shadow and some sparkle gloss to make it exciting. She found a crown and determine she would be the queen fairy. Then after all that handwork Ezra was the one who refused his costume. He cried and cried. 

So while I was taking Emerson's pictures before trick or treating Ezra was pouting on the porch. 

We got into the posing

Luckily it was warm enough not to wear tights. 

Finally Ezra was convinced to put his costume on, no mask. Here they are trick or treating at Mark's work. Obviously this was pre haircut. :)

Fresh Trims

The past week everyone got fresh haircuts. Emerson went first and requested a short do. I was shocked at the request of a girl who has been wanting to grow her hair out for a year. But, I love it shorter so we compromised with an above the shoulder bob. She wanted chin length but I knew she would have some regret with that after all the fuss over princess hair.

She was really modest about showing off her new do. She looked over and saw the dryer that you pull over your head and asked the lady if she could sit in it and change her hair. I think she was ready for color and all!

Ezra had the biggest change getting inches off his locks. It had grown so much in the past two months I was ready for it to be chopped a bit. He was perfect in the chair, following his big sis. I didn't get more pictures of him since I was preoccupied trying to get him to look a certain way so it wasn't completely crooked. He even got his neck trimmed and I must say he looks handsome!

It’s time for Baby Predictions!

Six weeks and counting folks. Now is as good as time as any to start predicting little one’s arrival. Since we don’t know if it’s a boy or girl the poll is even more fun! Take a guess.
