Happy Halloween

Abigail and I stopped by Ted's office this afternoon to participate in his company's Halloween festivities.  I wasn't planning on it, but his coworkers convinced us to enter her into the costume contest.

Umbrella Stroller

I wanted to share two last pictures from our trip to NC.  Both pictures are of Abigail in the umbrella stroller we borrowed from my sister.  She absolutely loved being in this stroller.  I think it made her feel like such a big girl.

Picture #2: Emiah and Abigail at play.
Picture #3: Abigail playing the piano for Aunt Suzie.
Picture #4: Nicholas taking all of they books off the bookshelf.
