October in Pictures

Hold on to your hats, folks....there are lots of pictures to share. We have been doing well here as we daily adjust to the loss of Dad. Ellie has lots of questions each day for us, but is really amazing us with her maturity through all this. We have been keeping busy here and I just haven't taken the time to post. So, this is just a mix of some of the fun we have been up to. There isn't really any rhyme or reason to my pictures.....just showing off October in pictures! Hope all your Halloween-ing was as fun as ours!!!!

Ellie (the horse) and 2 of her neighbor friends. All are just a few months apart in age.

Ellie and her buddy, Ryne.

My little "stinker" and my little horse......the tail ends! This picture was Ellie's idea. Funny!

This is what Reid thought of his costume. Brian promised him a "manly" costume next year. I was just being economical...Ellie wore this last year! Yeah, digest that sentence again. Reid is almost 2......Ellie wore the costume when she was 4. He is huge, my friends!

My lovies ready to fill up their goodie bags!

It was warm enough on Friday for no coats! It was beautiful, so we took advantage of some leaf jumping! Ellie was happy to pose for me!

Again......not shy around the camera as you can see. Reid was nowhere to be found. He was too busy "raking" for me to get any pictures of him!

There they are!!!! Reid would just hysterically laugh in the leaves. They tickled his neck and he could not keep from cracking up.

A great day for a leaf pile!

Ready to scoop the goop!!!! Ellie is armed with a spoon and could not wait to get messy!

Enjoying the chance to make a mess and not get in trouble for it!

She's not shy about anything! Reid was watching from afar....he hated the feel of the pumpkin "goop". Ellie loved it!

Always making us smile!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween and super October. Here is to a great start to November! Happy Halloween!

Beautiful pictures. I especially love the one of Ellie in the leaves - it's priceless.

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!

Many blessing to you all.

Little Ski (Ellie)

Told ya, my hair can be wild! And you thought I was kidding!

Hmmm, Blue's Brother's perhaps?
