Last week Kennedy went to the dentist for the first time.  She didn't have any cavities, but the dentist said she had a broken molar.  They are going to seal it just so there isn't a concern for a cavity, but no other problems.  Here is a picture of Kennedy in the dentist chair(notice the feet crossed!).  She didn't cry or complain once.  She did so good.  She had told several people about her experience and every time she tells them about the tooth she says, "Don't panic.  It is just a broken tooth.  No cavities!"  Too much!

Kennedy and Carter had their 4 and 2 year-old check ups today. Everything went well. Here are their staats.
Kennedy-
41 inches tall-74%
38.8 pounds-75%

The doctor asked her if we had a Christmas tree up yet and this was Kennedy's response, "We have everything under control and we're all ready to go." The doctor obviously has no concern with her speech.  :)
Carter-
36 inches tall-80%
29.6 pounds-63%
Head-51.4 cm-97% (not that anyone is surprised!)

Happy Birthday, Kennedy!!!

 Kennedy had school today and was able to bring snacks.  They had a great hat for her!




Handing out the cookies we made.  They were chocolate chip cookies with frosting and a red "K" on them.  Kennedy also thought they needed sprinkles so they were bedazzled too!!

I'm not sure which picture is more our family.  The crazy one with everyone going a different direction or the nicely posed one...hmm.....
Happy Halloween!


Happy Halloween!!!!
Happy witch and happy spider!

Scarrrrrry witch and confused spider.

Adorable Witch!

Over-the-costume spider.

Flying witch...I made the broom and Nana brought Kennedy the cat.  Mom thought that with shoes, a hat, a broom and a candy bucket we were good for accesories.  Nana pulled through, though and brought a cat for Kennedy.  Thanks, Nana!

Trick-or-treating...

Once Carter realized that he was going to get candy, he was very happy!!!

Thursday Kennedy had her Halloween party at school. Here are a few pictures.




Having snack with her friends...

Going on a parade.

Singing a song..

After the party, Kennedy and Carter played outside a little bit.  Carter had a photoshoot for GQ....



Cutest 2-yearold you know, right?!
Happy Birthday Carter!!!

There's the birthday boy with his Thomas the Train balloon.  The theme of his party was airplane, however it is hard to find airplane decorations.  So, a "choo, choo" is what he got.  He was very happy!

Waiting for the guests to arrive, Carter read a book to Grandpa and Ruth.

Praying before lunch.

Opening presents with Daddy.  Thank you everyone for the great gifts!!  Carter has a hard time deciding what to play with next.  He loves them all!!

Carter's airplane cake.  Yes, I made it and yes, it is sliding off to the right.  It is a crashing airplane cake.  :)

The whole crazy family enjoying cake.  Carter is, obviously, the only one who knew what camera to look at!  Thanks for taking pictures, Uncle Matt!!!

enjoying the cake! Of course, he is eating with a fork.  He is very neat!

Although Carter went to bed late, after 2 1/2 hours, we decided that we shouldn't let him sleep until 5.  I went to check on him and this is what I found.  He was obviously reminiscing about the great party!

Just a little tidbit!  Kennedy has really turned the corner and is being a great helper these days.  She seems to be pretty easy going (I'll take credit for that!  :) ).  Her new phrase is, "Whatever will be fine."  This morning I asked her which cup she would like for her hot chocolate and her response was, "whatever will be fine." 
What a great kid!!!!  Her Halloween party is tomorrow.  Can't wait!!

Carter had a Halloween party at our moms group today.  He wore his spider costume for about 5 minutes.  We took pictures and then he grabbed it and said, "this off."  We got some good pics!!
Carter and I were in charge of the cupcake walk.  He demonstrated how to play it very nicely.  He starts to show a smile a little bit, but for the most part it was strictly business,  :)
Happy Halloween!!
Sunday the whole family carved pumpkins.  Carter pretty much sat with us until it came time to clean it out and then he just played on the deck.  Kennedy cried and said she wouldn't put her hands in the pumpkin because it was, "disgusting!"  Here is a video of her finally doing it.
Carving Pumpkins....

Tony's pumpkin(of course) and Carters

Kennedy's.  Of course it is a witch.  Turned out pretty good.  Thanks, Mommy!!
