Happy Halloween!

Ryan & I were fraternal twins (see the matching brown sweaters over white, with jeans?)...we even had matching shoes.  And Eowyn was our M & M (if there's just one is it an 'M')?  We handed out a few treats at our door, then went to Hillcrest Ave, which is FAMOUS for its crazy Halloween decorations.  These guys go all out... orchestras in the front yard, paper mache, I mean it's nuts.  We didn't go to trick or treat, but to hang out in front of a friends house where they were doing Christian rap full of the Gospel.  We handed out some tracts and candy, and left near E's bedtime.  Maybe next year we'll plan something a bit more fellowship & food oriented, but that was all we did this year. :)  For someone who still isn't sure about this "holiday" I think it was quite enough.

Nina's First Night in Louisville

Nina (Mommy's mom) came to watch me while Mom went to some blogger's conference.  We celebrated Nina's birthday, which we had missed, by going to our favorite Louisville restaurant, Ramsi's Cafe on the World.  

I got Mom's nose in the bargain. :)

Or whatever you call someone who devours pacifiers.  The above damage was done in a 15 minute drive between dinner and dessert.  It was the 3rd pacifier in 2 days, and was followed by one more before we wised up and gave her only the single-piece-hard-plastic Soothie brand.  She is significantly less attached to that type, but at least she can't chomp through it (and risk chocking on the latex flecks!)... and has actually progressed to not using a paci at night at all.

These two little clips are of Eowyn playing in our dining room. Pardon my modeling of the elephant noise right into the camera mic. =/ But you can see that she "gets" it and has added it to her bag of tricks! I'll have to shoot a better clip of her walking, too. She walks for long stretches, but her legs look like wobbly spaghetti the entire time!

St James Court Art Fair

You may remember our visit last year, with a nine-day old... This year it was chillier, sunnier, and just as fun!  We got our yearly treats-- fudge for me, funnel cake for Ryan.  We oohed and aahed over the different booths, especially the fairy tree houses you can see behind E & I in the stroller pic. Ryan bought me an amazingly cool bread knife, too! :)

Triple the Sugar, Triple the Spice

Several other moms at our church delivered beautiful girlies within 2 weeks of me. One had her own b'day party, but we had a triple event with Eliana, Eowyn & Grace. It didn't bode well, with a cold front and rain, but the Lord answered prayer, lifting the rain PRECISELY at 5:00, which was when the party began. We even got a little sun, and the rain ensured we had a nice big picnic shelter at a local park all to ourselves!

Blowing it out, with a little help from the moms (each mom made a cake or bunch of cupcakes for her daughter, and these were all shared).  Eowyn had pumpkin-coconut spicecake!  She liked it.
