Lyla the ladybug. I made her costume which she only had on for about 20 min then she didn't want to go to anymore houses, she just wanted to eat her canki(candy). The costume didn't turn out like I had hoped but you get the idea. The night before halloween we went to my moms house to carve pumpkins. Lyla didn't want anything to do with it besides sitting on the punki(pumpkin). Jesse took Lyla to his office halloween party and got LOTS of candy. She would open a sucker, lick it once, set it on the floor, then open another one. When they got home she was sticky from head to toe but she had a great time. Later we went to my sisters sister-in-law and had nachos and hot chocolate. Very yummy. Their neighborhood goes all out for Halloween, there was even a guy dressed up as a headless horseman and rode up and down the street on a horse.

Here are a few pictures of my niece Brielle(Supergirl) and my nephew Dawson(The Doctor). Dawson makes the funniest faces, it amazes me to think that just 3 months ago he was having a brain tumor removed. That kid is a fighter!

And this is a scary picture of my sister...just thought I would throw it in there too.

Her costome is totally cute! Nice job. Your blog background is cute too. I haven't ventured that far with blogging yet.

I think you did an awesome job on her costume! So cute! And I love your new background! How are you feeling? Are you starting to feel better?
We have thought of a girl name:
Ellen Marlene, but we'll call her Elle. Ellen after one grandma, Marlene after my other one. And Marlene is my middle name as well. Have you guys thought of names yet?
BTW, Tim told me about your furnace - that's awful! I hope you can find a good deal and get it in quick so you can stay warm! We think you guys are awesome and think of you often. Lyla is so cute and we need to get together more!
