Daddy carved a special pumpkin for Eliza featuring one of her favorite characters - Mickey Mouse. We wore silly hats, listened to spooky music and got messy carving pumpkins at our impromptu Halloween party.
Whenever we're in the car, E is always trying to get us to make unscheduled stops. "I want to go into a store!" or "I want to eat at a restaurant!" are her usual demands.
Today we surprised her when we stopped to get pizza. She couldn't be any happier. Eliza loves sitting in her booster seat (finally!) and feeling like a grown-up at the table.
Today E went to the library, just down the street from our house, and got her very own Maitland Public Library card. She had a great time picking out books to read, as well as, reminding Mommy to be quiet.
Eliza''s very proud of her membership and can't wait to let Karey and the Grandmas use her card to check out books when they visit.
She LOVED her new look, complete with lipstick and eyeshadow. It actually took a long moment before we could snap a photo - she was in shock after getting a peek at herself in the mirror. Afterwards, we stepped aside and took her over to a special mirror area, where kids could check themselves out. It was almost beyond words how thrilled she was.
Eliza has a couple of new costumes she likes to wear including her kitty suit. She asks that we call her "Kitty Eliza". She decided to read some books in her room wearing her costume. Doesn't get much cuter than this.
Like her Daddy, Eliza is obsessed with Converse sneakers, so we got her a red pair of those, instead of the ruby slippers. It was a big hit with everyone we came across last night.
More cute Halloween outfits are on the way this month, and we can't wait for y'all to see them.
We went to see the Sesame Street live show today. Eliza liked it, but became disinterested after realizing we were standing firm and were unwilling to buy her cotton candy.
Upon our recent trip to Oregon, we continued our usual tradition of visiting Gustav's with Charlotte, and her mommy, Melinda. Two things were confirmed on this visit:
1. The little gals sure do act silly together.
2. They REALLY like eating fondue.
