Happy Birthday Brooklyn!

We had quite the birthday for Brooklyn. I woke Brooklyn up saying, "Surprise!" She says, "You ruined my birthday. you were all supposed to hide in the other room and hide while I come in and say, 'where is everyone' and then everyone was supposed to pop out and say, 'surprise.'" So apparently I didn't "surprise" Brooklyn good enough. We tried to make it up to her by making her a smiley face pancake. For lunch we went to the Old Spaghetti Factory where we ate in a train car. We came home and Riley took a nap. Meanwhile Brooklyn, Drew, and Grandma and Grandpa Spear took a walk around the block. Then we went to Madagascar 2. It was our first movie together as a family. We ended it with Brooklyn blowing out a candle on a rice krispie treat. What a day!

Typical day with Stephanie

Melanie is always wondering what I do all day, and this is it. Play dress-up with Teddy and Monkey, read plenty of books over and over again. I wouldn't change it for the world!

We had such a great Halloween. We went to our friend's neighborhood. Brooklyn was the cutest little pirate ever! Riley was tired but she didn't whine one bit. I took her in and out of the stroller many times, that's right folks, I make my 15 month old beg for my candy. Ha! They both zonked when they came home. Drew and I snuggled and watched a scary movie afterwards.
