In Disguise

Oh what a Halloween we had! The Kansas weather cooperated and we had a beautiful Halloween week. We managed several costume parties before the big day and then a photo shoot the day after Halloween.  We still haven't gotten Julietta dressed up again, hopefully soon! From left to right, Ella is Miss America. Julietta is a *pink* fairy. Jack is a toy soldier. And, Liliana is Hermione.

Jack was a toy soldier of the variety you see above. He broke his gun and helmet days before Halloween, so we did our best with remains. {grin} His costume was almost entirely thrifted and then sprayed with four cans of green paint! Everything in our garage has a slight green film on it now.

After much moaning and groaning, Liliana decided to be Harry Potter's Hermione. 

 And Ella, Ella was Miss America. I wouldn't be surprised if we see her in a similar crown someday.

Little Girls No More

I can't believe these are my little girls! Their gorgeousness is too much to handle. 
When I was pregnant with Ella and Liliana I worked for Abercrombie and Fitch. I helped set up and open the kids store where we bought their duds almost exactly 12 years ago. If this is what they look like when they are eleven, what are they going to look like when they're sixteen!?! {BTW, they do not use any makeup or hair products. We did not even remember to put on chap stick as we rushed out to try and catch what was left of the day's light}
When I have a chance, I will post a few of their individual portraits as well.

I'm linking up with Small Style today!

Sibling Love

 Ella and Liliana have activities  outside of school six days a week. They are middle schoolers! I keep saying I am going to take their photos, but we never have time. Jack has a few days off so I did manage to bribe him {with a happy meal} and Julietta to do a twenty minute photo shoot. I'm thrilled with how the photos turned out. Jack and Julietta are so sweet together. Jack is the BEST big brother. He adores his little sis and is so sweet with her. I pray that these two are always the friends they are now. Oh how I love fall.
