festival of trees

getting ready to go. i couldn't resist these boots at old navy even though they'll serve no real purpose in her wardrobe whatsoever. 

she fell asleep in the car but woke up just in time!

checking things out with dad....

waiting in line to see santa, strategically keeping him out of view until after we had gotten our shot with him. she is terrified of strangers lately which is NOT enjoyable but what can i do? (note: strangers in this use means anyone but adam and i.. and the occasional random relative she will temporarily tolerate.)
adam trying to encourage coleman to go see shamu dressed up as santa. not happening.

waiting for dad to get the car. it was cold! i don't know why this is underlined.

soooooo big

whenever i put olivia's boppy pillow around her waist, it gives her just enough support to sit up. it does look like she is only laying down, though, because of her little midget torso. tricky, tricky! she usually lasts about 5 minutes before she loses steam. here she is laughing at dad (above) and regaining some balance after she got a little too crazy (below). love her.

shout hooray....

to katie because it's her birthday. apparently the only photos i have on this computer are of our maine trip and they are only of us with other people- none together. so instead, here is a birthday smile from olivia. she says she wants to meet you. hope you are having a good day and that cameron and your mom are spoiling you as you enter your 24th year. just had a flash memory of us panic speed shopping in the BR outlet in maine because we knew we only had moments before cameron and adam would come in the store to find us. lol. happy b-day.

happy halloween!

this year we hit up my mom and dad's trunk or treat. olivia only lasted in her costume for about 20 minutes. apparently she didn't like her feet being shoved in to a little torpedo at the bottom of the costume (no leg holes). go figure. regardless, we hurried to snap some photos to make halloween #1 as memorable as possible! here is our little chili pepper.

on actual halloween night, we went to my parents' house where my dad was making donuts for the trick or treaters. olivia did not make it in to her costume at all- how sad is that! she did sport her little cat onesie with some halloween socks so i think we were still in the halloween spirit. 

cousin coleman was enjoying some donuts as well. he had this look that said, "is someone going to come grab me and tell me no...?" mckinley and coleman were a cute cowboy/indian duo! 

somebody take me home....
