Eden loves dress-up. She loves to wear every item of dress-up clothing, though she has toned down a little, depending on the day. One night she fell asleep on Jon still dressed up and I just had to take a picture, plus Jon was asleep too so it was an added bonus.
She always wears her Sunday shoes for dress-up.


We also made cookies at Carolyn’s house one weekend for the Monday we fed the homeless in November. This is something we started doing with Carolyn’s work a few months back and I think is really good for the girls. Lilah loves it, while Eden mostly just stays attached to my side but there are times where she is ready and willing to hand out cookies and that makes it worth it to me. We bought the girls the heavy coats so they could be nice and warm on the nights we feed the homeless during the winter and possibly make a visit to the snow, but that has yet to be determined.


Lilah helped with each batch and was wanting to be apart of the entire process. She’s by some of the chocolate chip cookies we made.



Lilah with our tub of chocolate chip pumpkin cookies. I think we made around 75 total, or three batches.



Eden with the cookies. She liked bagging the cookies the best.

Halloween Pictures

Well I’ve figured out how to use GIMP, or the image editor in Linux. I can’t make videos, but I can actually edit and post pictures finally! I might be playing catch-up over the next little while as I find time avoiding dishes, which is what I’m doing right now.

Here’s the link to my written overview of Halloween and here are just a few photos of the fun we had. I’m really disappointed because I did not get a  picture of Lilah’s side of the pumpkin. I really loved how it turned out, but in the craziness of getting out the door I must have forgotten. 🙁


Eating doughnuts off a string at Carolyn’s work party.



Gutting the pumpkin.



Lilah loved the feel of the goo.



The girls in their costumes (Glinda and a fairy) and Eden’s side of the pumpkin.
