Happy Halloween!

Today was a very busy day. We met up with Dixie for our Fall Portraits at Lucy Park. Afterwards, we had Trunk-or-Treat at our church. Holland had a lot of fun there trick-or-treating for the first time. She can only say "tre tre" for trick or treat. :) Once we left the church, we went over to Mommer's house and then to 2 neighbors and that was it. We were pooped! Holland dressed up as a tulip this year. She was a cutie!

Happy Halloween!!!

1st time to pumpkin patch

Kirk and I took Holland to a pumpkin patch in town today. She had so much fun that she got a little fussy when we had to leave. She would pat each pumpkin and call it "punkie". It was hard to get pictures of her because she was running around everywhere, would punkie pat each pumpkin, and try to carry several of the pumpkins away. After we left the pumpkin patch, we went and looked at some new bedroom furniture and ate lunch at Olive Garden. It was a fun day in town.

Holland picked out her own pumpkin and helped carry it to the car.

16 months old

Holland turned 16 months on the 19th. She is still doing great. Holland is saying more and more words. She picks items out of pictures and books. One cute thing she does is when we are at home, she will go pick up the cordless phone and say, "hi gaga" like she is talking to Grannie. And, she will pick up Kirk's cell phone, and say, "hi mama". Too sweet! We started a magazine/book subscription for Holland and she loves it. The first book came in this week and she can say and point to every animal in it. She can even pick out a moose out of the book. Holland has 4 top front teeth, 2 bottom front teeth, and 2 bottom molers. I didn't even know those came in until Kirk was feeding her this week and saw those pearly whites in the back of her mouth. She is growing so fast and learning so much every day.

U2 Concert

Kirk and I bought our U2 concert tickets back in March for their 360 degrees tour that was on October 12th down at the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium. It was absolutely awesome! We had 6th row tickets and it was a blast. Muse opened up for them, and they were pretty good, too. Here is the stage before anything started.

Here are a few pictures of U2 performing and the expansion of their totally awesome tv screens.

and more dancing......

Holland dances to everything! Music during shows, commercials, etc. This one isn't as good as the tushy shaking she did in the last video we posted, but this is still funny. Too cute!

New stuff

Holland has started saying Elmo and playing with the limbo Elmo we received from a good family friend. She loves to see Elmo limbo and sing. It's too cute. Holland has also started saying "patty cake" while clapping.

Holland typically doesn't enjoy wearing anything on her head, but she did enjoy wearing her winter hat around the house.

We finally got a new television. We love it! It's only a 42 inch Vizio, but it's a good size for our living room. Love Sam's and their great TV deals.
