The sweet middle

Found this on Emma's desk.
Emma had the sweetest heart and loves both of her sisters so much.  We couldn't ask for a sweeter middle child.  She was placed in our family right where we needed her.  Love her heart.

Halloween 2017

What a fun time we had this year with costumes.  Ryan declared a month ago that she wanted to be a zombie bride and Emma soon after decided she wanted to be a zombie flower girl. :-) We had fun making their bloody costumes. I found Polly a sweet little lady bug costume and threw together my mombie costume last minute.  We hit a couple of Halloween parties leading up to Halloween and our costumes were a hit.  The big girls costumes freaked people out!! 
Ryan and Emma also dressed up for story book character day at Hill.  They recently discovered Harry Potter and we are in the middle of reading it, so both girls wanted to be Hermione. They were too cute!  
Trick or treating was fun and hectic, since Chris was on shift.  The girls trick or treated with the Tharp boys for the 7th year in a row! They always have a great time together. They scored plenty of candy and I was completely exhausted by the end of it all, but we did it!  I was still in mombie mode Nov. 1! Here are a bunch of pictures from our fun this Halloween. Love my girls!

That expression.....and the knife..

Super scary!

Headed to a party with AJ
We carved one pumpkin and let the girls each paint theirs this year.  It was fun and messy.  I am sure Chris was happy to only have to carve one this year!

Doesn't Chris look like he is having fun!

So fun and so true most days!
Sweetest little lady bug I ever saw!

She did awesome trick or treating this year.
She said "trick or treat" and "thank you" to every person!
Headed down Mamaw's street

The girls had fun with Sinei too!

Kellie always helps me so much!
Pretty sure I wouldn't have made it home with all 3
girls without her and Brad's help!

Duff Library “Babygarten”

Duff Elementary received a grant and is having a 6 week baby/toddler library program called Babygarten every Monday morning.  I got to take Polly and she had a great time!
We read books, played games, did the parachute and sang songs.
All about colors, and Polly knows them all!
