Week 51

Are you kidding?
51 WEEKS! 

We have been in party-prep mode around here lately,
and most of our free time has been devoted to
cleaning, finishing projects, and stressing out.
I'm starting to think I've bit off more than I can chew.

We did manage to take a roadtrip in the midst of all that.
Originally my 20th high school reunion was scheduled for this past weekend,
but that was cancelled due to low attendance. Very sad.
However, we had already planned to do a family photo
of my mom, Gene, and all the grandkids for their holiday card,
so the trip went on as planned!

I can't share the photo yet,
but I will share this one series of Matilda with her Onnie & Papa...

You are a ham, girl!

It was great, and since it was Halloween week,
it gave us a chance to dress you up in your costume
and take a few photos at the local feed store,
where there were painted hay bales,
decorated as pumpkins, spiders, witches and such.


We also visited an apple farm to do a photo-op in the pumpkin patch,
and Onnie and Ellie came along.
All in all, it was a weekend full of picture-taking,
and by the end, you weren't very cooperative!
But I can't really blame you.


You wouldn't look at the camera,
you wouldn't smile,
but you would rock some skinny jeans!


  1. Cuties! Thank you for making the trip. I know you all are busy.

  2. Oh my gracious, these pictures are adorable!! I love her costume and the last one of her head as the cow head! So funny! Bummer about your reunion :/ ... but I hear you guys have another one scheduled for next weekend, and I think we're gonna get to see you guys while you're visiting!!

    Can't believe she's almost one. Crazy!
