Cool Tricks

Caroline enjoyed playing Grandma's piano this weekend. She caught me a little off guard when she played a few notes and then turned around on the bench and said "My name is Ethan and my cool trick is playing piano." It's a line from Yo Gabba Gabba's Cool Tricks segment. Of course I got a kick out of it so she continued to do it from that point on. I was able to catch it on camera. stop the play list so you can hear her.

Halloween 2009

Trying to get a picture together, but Caroline had other plans...

After trunk or treat, candy was used as bribery to keep her still.

Enjoying some of her candy with Princess Brianna


After another trunk or treat on Saturday, with Cowboy Carl, Alex the Builder, and Aunt Marci


Riding a horse Saturday night. She loved it and was so excited when she got down, she told everybody "The horse farted!"

Flying the helicopter with Daddy

Driving with Daddy (I later did this one with her, but I had to sit in the back)

Riding on the duck with Mommy

It's been a fun Halloween this year for all of us. We started celebrating Wednesday night while Caroline and I were in Smithfield, Caroline wore her Carolina Panthers cheerleader costume to the church's fall bazaar. Friday night she got to dress up again for her school's Halloween carnival. And Saturday we were out for 5 hours doing trunk or treat, trick or treat, and another Halloween carnival. As if that wasn't enough fun for one weekend, we went to the fair Sunday afternoon, which Caroline LOVED! She enjoyed all the different rides, and Miss Independent didn't want us to sit with her on a lot of them.
We closed on our lot Friday afternoon, and started clearing it today. Tomorrow we have to pick out what trees we want to keep in the yard....just the beginning, but I was excited to see how much progress was already made today. A friend across the street took some pictures for us of the before and after, I'll post those later.
