Boo at the Zoo

Drum roll please!!

I'm tickled to present to you the 2015 costumes!

And one more memory for Liza to bring up to her therapist one day.

I started with something we had (camo overalls from Goodwill) and grabbed stuff we already had (binoculars, onesie, crocs) Liza's shirt and pants also came from Goodwill, her antlers are from Michael's - the Christmas section- I pealed off the holly decoration. And Caris' hunting hat was a last minute snag the night before.

Total: $7.00 (give or take)

I hope we can do theme costumes for a super long time. I'm thinking until they're well into their 20's..?
Aunt Anna invited us to Boo at the Zoo with her work and Gigi came with us. I talked Caris into wearing her hat "to keep the sun out of your eyes" and the binoculars "to see all the animals" and sure enough, she whipped them every time. 

Thanks, Aunt Anna for inviting us!

This is Fall

After the wedding festivities were over, Kent, Caris and I went on a short hike in hopes of introducing  her to a little thing called fall
We did this by throwing leaves up in the air 
Letting her climb on rocks and touch the this-is-not-warm-florida water
And driving with the windows down. This is how she blocked the wind.

Our Trip (Camera Edition)

We just returned from our most recent trip to South Carolina. 
Want to see some random pictures?

Kent's sister got hitched and I only managed to get a family picture. 
This sums us up nicely.

Kent: Caris, take your thumb out
Caris: I DO WHAT I WANT
Kait: Saying-something-while-making-a-face
Liza: HOW did I get in this family? SOMEBODY please help me
If I close my eyes, you can't see me. If you can't see me, you won't take my picture.

Then & Now

What used to be our tiny adorable puppy..
..is now a too-big-for-this-house dog that eats and throws up rubber ducks

What used to be my brand new "Kent gave me an envelope of cash to buy new things for our first house!" furniture from World Market..

..is now a scratched up coffee table due to toys & picture books being slid across it and side tables with mug marks (thanks, dad)

Strangely enough, I don't have a ton of pictures of my furniture winkyface

What used to be my tiny nugget of joy..
..is now my dramatic two and half year old
What used to be my "I'm so happy! I think I might be beaming!" pregnancy belly..

..is now my "Tina,ya fat lard, why'd you gain so much when you were pregnant??" belly

Yeah right.

What used to be my cute "Nothing will come between us!" boyfriend..
..is now my "I don't care where you sleep, just take that crying baby with you" husband
