Trunk or Treat 2008

Audrey's first Trunk or Treat was Sunday night. It was a lovely 85 degrees when the event started. Audrey wasn't too happy in her velour kitty costume. Nor was she happy about me putting whiskers on her. Overall, she thought we had lost our minds. Therefore, the pictures are not the best.

My sad little kitty.
Uh, Mom...it's hot!

Random Blog Question

For those of you that actually visit my page instead of Google Reader'ing it (I like that new word, ha!), do you know how long my pink and brown background has been missing? Has it been a long time? If it's just been for a little bit, it may be a fluke. I might be able to fix it if it has been a long-time issue. Thanks!

10 Months!

Audrey is another month old. Another couple of months and she'll be 1! She still has just 2 teeth, but surely there are more coming in with her fussy behavior! She went to a high school football game, played with balloons twice (she likes balloons a lot!), went to a birthday party, and went to a pumpkin patch last month! We almost went to the fair yesterday, but the rain cancelled that. She is still crawling. She can get up AND get down around things. She can change the channel on the tv...urgh! She is getting tired of baby food, but she only eats bananas and bread well. She likes to make this sound that sounds like Donald Duck. She's our Lil Stinker and we love her!

Pumpkin Patch

Just wanted to share a few pictures we took Monday at the pumpkin patch.
