I can't stop smiling. Mainly because...I don't know what to say! Is this really happening? Looks like we are having a surprise baby #4!

a new fear

Tonight is the second night in a row that Natalie has cried herself to sleep because she doesn't want to be away from me while she is in college. Yep, that is right. Full on tears and sobs at the unbearable thought that we would be apart.

"Will you come with me? I want to be with you forever. Even in college. I don't want to be away from you!" -Natalie

I guarantee that as she approaches 18 years old her attitude will change, but in the mean time this is breaking my heart! My baby!

last game

I'm so proud of Marisa coming out of her comfort zone and exploring something new. Marisa enjoyed her first soccer season and that is all I could ask for!

Marisa got to do the coin toss for the first time at her game!

And we mustn't forget Marisa's cutest #1 fan on the sideline!

After Marisa's game, the team had their end of season party at the park right next to the field. Marisa was BEYOND excited about receiving her trophy!

The team mom had the team banner cut up so every girl got their name as a keepsake. Clever! And how cute is that cookie??

Way to go, #3!! We love you!

Halloween 2013

Halloween at our house started out with some pumpkin carving...

And of course, ended with good ol' trick or treating with our Buzz Lightyear, mermaid, and flamenco dancer! Our neighborhood was decked out with lights, spiders and webs, pumpkins, and witches galore, and even mini haunted houses scattered throughout. I have missed Halloween in the states! It's just so much fun!

Once the girls' baskets started getting semi-full and heavier, apparently that was their indicator to be totally done for the night. We actually didn't hit that many houses! The night was still young and I was ready to keep going!
I kept asking them while walking back, "Are you sure you are done? What about this house? This house looks fun!" Their reply every time was a slow, "No." The girls were completely content sitting in the double stroller skimming through their perfectly acceptable amount of candy loot the rest of the way home. Tim and I couldn't believe it!

So we just went straight home to put Darren down for bed and Tim and the girls sat on the front porch passing out candy the rest of the night. I think that was the highlight of their night more than the trick-or-treating!

We will see what next year brings as the kids get older and maybe greedier??... :)
