Poor Girls! Abby took a spill on the tile floor and later that day Gracie was playing ghost (with a blanket over her head) when she tripped and ran into the corner of the coffee table.
Good thing we have hard heads in this family :)

Yesterday Gracie told me two phrases:
"Mom, look at me when I'm talking to you" and
"Please, don't talk to me like that" (of course she used this one when I asked her to do something she didn't want to do)
Oh my Gracie Girl, what are we going to do with you? ...She sure keeps me on my toes :)

This Halloween was so fun, especially now that Gracie really understands what it's all about. We went trick or treating with some friends and she was the leader of the pack. She would run from door to door, always first, and knew just what to say "trick or treat" followed by "thank you" followed by "I want more candy".
Ben was very happy to hear that his daughter won the doughnut eating contest at a friends Halloween party.
My sweet butterfly and ladybug
Gracie called the inside of the pumpkin the "cheese" and loved cleaning it out this year.
Abigail just had fun watching
Here's my manly man carving our pumpkin with his drill.
Of course Gracie had to be digging into her bag during trick or treating. When one sucker was finished a new one would appear in her mouth.

Ben has been gone a lot and getting home really late when the girls are already in bed. There were many days last week when they didn't even see him. So, Friday night Ben decided to take Gracie on a date so they could have some time together. They went to the movies to see "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs". Gracie was so exited to go on a date. She picked out her own outfit, needed a purse (with lots of candy inside), and wanted perfume as well as lipstick. I guess she's pretty observant watching me get ready. The movie was in 3D and the glasses were huge on Grace's little face. Since Ben picked up the tickets and glasses earlier that day we were able to come up with a little concoction with a hat and some glue to make the glasses work for her. It was cute seeing the two of them go on a little date, and we'll have to make it happen more often...but I must say, when is it my turn?
