Happy Halloween!

Of course I have a billion pics, I won't post them all but I have lots : ) BUT, first I want to tell you all that Chris, Ella and I were just sitting on the couch, yes I realize it was 11:30pm, trying to get Ella to sleep. Ella, mind you she is 2 years and 2 months and has oh about 3 words that she actually says, pats her diaper and says "poop," Chris and I kind of give eachother a shocked look and I ask "Ella, do you have to go potty?" she shakes her head yes, slides off the couch and walks to the bathroom. I take off her jammies and her diaper and sit her on the toliet. She pushes really hard, nothing happens and she laughs. I think okay well I guess she is just stalling going to bed. Then she pushes again and poops. I CANNOT believe it!! How smart is that??? I am so proud of her!!! She is leaps and bounds ahead of her brother at this age, which is just so funny for so many different reasons!!
Anyhow, Ella dressed up in her costume, an ANGEL, for school and they took them around to all the other classrooms and offices to trick-or-treat, it was so cute. Of course Ella was in her element, everyone that saw her said how cute/pretty/beautiful she is and she LOVES that!!!

Circle time at

Riley the duck.


Look what I

Smooch break

Then we picked Hunter up from school, came home and got him ready for trick-or-treating. He decided he wanted to be a police officer again, big surprise, and wanted to wear his same costume from last year, score for mom!!! We met Mary and family at the mall and trick-or-treated there, have to say doing that at the mall turned out to be pretty cool!!!
Tough guys
don't smile.

Muscle man

smooch for

The gang.

Ella looks so cute. Her costume would look beautiful in a professional photography, with an all white background, maybe a white smokey border. It'd be like she's an angel in the clouds.

I just love Hunter's muscles!

Shannon said...

SO cute! I love seeing all the kids in costume! :)
I agree with Kristen about the professional photography...and about Hunter's muscles. He looks even stronger and tougher than last year! :)

Oh my goodness. How adorable!!! I don't think I have ever seen a more beautiful angel. My little brother loves the picture where Ella is kissing her little friend. he says "aaahhhh."

datri said...

Awww, that is the cutest angel ever! All the pictures are awesome. Looks like everyone had a wonderful Halloween!

Becca said...

First, Ella is an absolutely gorgeous angel!! Second, GO ELLA!!!!! I can't believe she pooped on the potty after telling you! That is soooooo exciting!

Ann said...

Way to go Ella! Wouldn't it be nice for mom if she potty trained herself!

The pictures are way too cute. She is definitely the cutest angel ever. Hunter is one tough policeman. Looks like you all had a wonderful time. Our mall does the trick-or-treating too but we didn't make it over this year after the harvest carnival there just wasn't time.

Michelle said...

Wow! Potty training already, what a big girl!

The pics are beautiful!

Jennifer said...

So cute! Her costume is so pretty! Hunter looks handsome, too.
Btw, that little bear didn't come from Alaska. We've had it for years, it's just a "new" fascination.
When is Chris getting here??

How beautiful! She definitely looks angelic in her costume--but a little devilish on the inside right?! Ha! I just love the dress it is so pretty and frilly! The little shoes are cute too! And of course Hunter is very tough in his costume! Tough guys dont smile--that sounds a little like Chris to me huh? I love the first pic of her smiling I just cant get over how her whole face lights up when she smiles--she smiles with her eyes! And can I say AWESOME on pooping in the potty! That just shows how she is even more deserving of the "amazing Ella Grace" title! Great job Ella keep it up! We love ya's--Aunt Tami and family

Sabrina said...

She is just beautiful! Abbi was a pumpkin this year. Hooray for pooping in the potty! Abbi has quit for a while but we plan to start back trying again after Christmas.

They are too cute! She is the most beautiful angel I have ever seen...

Could you ask her to share her poop secret with Grace?! That is AMAZING!!!!

Mommy to those Special Ks said...

GREAT pictures! Ella looks SO beautiful!

Kari said...

aww the kiddos both look awesome! Ella is the most precious Angel I ever saw :)

Mary said...

Oh my, Ella looks so beautiful in her costume! Hunter is equally as adorable!

Way to go Ella with the poop on the potty! If only I could get my almost four year old son interested in the potty. Sigh.

I did want to let you know that Leah hasn't touched her earrings. I was so worried that she would pull at them, since she occasionally pulls at her hair bows. So far, so good!

Melissa @ Banana Migraine said...

They are both so cute!! I love their costumes.

Yay for Ella and the potty stuff - that is great!

Laurie said...
