Our busy bee had a great Halloween, and so did we. She loves walking and meeting people so trick-or-treating around the neighborhood was right up her alley. We get a lot of Trick-or-Treaters in our neighborhood. We've lived here for over ten years and each year we give out candy to anywhere from 40 to 60 children. Last Halloweeen we had no way of knowing that, this year, we'd finally be the one's walking a costumed little one from house to house. It was awesome =).

As you can see, she got a lot of use out of her costume between the Zoo, the Lantern Stroll, and Halloween.

We saw this adorable view many times tonight

Getting a lift from Daddy at neighbor's house

Speaking of neighbors, we sent our candy over to the lovely Miss Ashley to hand out for us. Her family has lived next door to us for almost 8 years.

We also made a trip to Nana and Papaw's house

And to my parent's house

I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!

Making Strides and making Friends

This past weekend Kerry and I participated in the "Make Strides" breast cancer awareness walk with my mom and my sweet sister-in-law, Stephanie, who lost her mother to breast cancer several years ago. It was a great day for a walk, which took us over the bridge to Indiana and back.

Mom and Stephanie

Kerry enjoyed playing around on these catwalk type things on the river front, but slept in her stroller through the entire walk. It was nap time, after all.

And last night we met up again with the georgeous Makenna and her family for a "Jack-O-Lantern stroll" where the girls were able to trick-or-treat and play a bit. They walked and ran tried to climb any stairs they could find. We really like this family and had a nice time getting more acquainted, as much as was possible with the crowd and business.

Funny Face

I love the kooky little faces my girl makes. And I love that she already has a well developed sense of humor. She just "gets" funny little games we make up ,and, as serious as she can be at times, she can be just as wacky and silly. She makes me laugh and even cracks herself up sometimes =). On another note, as you can see in the first pic, her hair has officially reached the point where it's starting to hang in her eyes. It's at that in between stage and I need to make a decision soon as to whether to give her bangs, or let it go and keep it pinned up until it gets long enough to not hang in her face so much.

She found the mascara.....

And has a pretty good idea of what to do with it apparently, except she put it in her hair, too ....but you couldn't really tell =).

Our busy little bee got to trick-or-treat today for the very first time at the L*uisville Zoo. She caught on very quickly to the whole look-cute-thrust-your-pumpkin-out-and-get-goodies thing.

Here, she's holding out for a second piece of candy from this push-over, I mean, nice young man (which she did get, by the way).

Checking out her stash

She was going as fast as her little legs could go through the Zoo.

But stopped a few times to check out the animals

They even had a hay-bale maze for the little ones to go through

Wonder Woman, I mean, Cousin Sydnie met up with us about halfway through

Here's a little clip of Kerry feeding herself.

I caught a little video clip of Kerry doing some of her animal sounds after her bath the other night.

My girl loves her books. And I love that she loves her books.

She's pretending to put on lotion in this one. Check back tomorrow for a video clip ( if I can find the usb cord)

Look who's 40!

Doug turned 40 yesterday. It's hard to believe I've known him for 15 years now. He really doesn't look, or seem, 40. He's a wonderful husband, and now, father. We decorated a bit and Kerry helped me decorate a cake (she put sprinkles on). Happy 40th sweetheart.

Enjoying some cake and ice-cream

We managed to enjoy a little walk during a break in the rain.

She points out all the cats, "kee kat"s, as she calls them, in our halloween lawn decorations and punctuates it with a "meow".

Weekend fun

The first weekend in October, every year, we spend with Doug's family and some friends at Lake Cumberland State Park. We eat dinner at the Lodge our first evening there. Then Saturday we start with a big breakfast with all the fixins, then we spend the day hiking, riding on the pontoon (with jackets and blankets most years) and cooking out. Then Sunday we wrap things up and head home. This year was pretty special, since it was our first year as a family of three. Kerry had a great time, she loves being outdoors and walking, and she loves to eat, so she was in her element. Cousin Sydnie, as usual, was so good with her. She wants nothing more than to be Kerry's friend. My little spitfire was fine with that for the most part, but had no problem letting her know when she needed her space. They have an indoor pool there,too, which was a huge hit with Ker-Bear.

Heading to dinner

Some story-time with Papaw

Trying to color like Sydnie

Syndie plied her with Milky Way miniatures

Having an early morning phone conversation. She so stinkin' cute when she wakes up.

I had to watch her like a hawk when we first got to the pool. She kept trying to get to the edge like she was going to jump in without us.

She loved, loved, loved the pool and is pretty brave in the water.

Her first hike

Heading down to the lake shore

She wanted to get in. She was fascinated with the water and the little waves coming in. I can't wait to take her to the beach for the first time.

They needed a little lift back to the cabin after all of that hiking.

I've been happily married to my wonderful husband for 15 years. Two year ago we were blessed to welcome our first child, a Daughter from China and are absolutely in love with her.
