"Come Inside, it's Fun Inside..." - MM

Madisyn and Reese were happy to see each other again. They loved to kiss and hold hands!
Off to a Halloween party... (This is only half of Reese's costume, we will save the entire thing for Wednesday) - Are we cute or what?!

A little Sound of Music can get anyone going!

Here is the house update. I drove past this morning and couldn't get too close, but here it is... some windows, a roof, a door, and some siding. We are the second one from the left. We have a lot of brick on the front of ours and I believe they do that last, so I assume it will look this way for a few more weeks. The house is scheduled to be done in late December and we will be moving in sometime the week of January 8th! (Anyone want to unpack?) This past weekend we celebrated Uncle Jason's 30th Birthday! He's getting old! :) Ryan and Aunt Joann pulled through and won the bags tournament - a good time was had by everyone!
Other news: Reese has take about 5 steps! She is getting more brave every day and her balance is improving. Will she walk by her first birthday?! We will soon find out.

Have a good day!

Party like a Rockstar!!

We bowled and then the big kids got to have some fun! It was long overdue, but we all had a fabulous time. What great family and friends.
Auntie Jen and Reese... SMILE!

Good job, your eyes are finally OPEN for a picture!

11 Months Old Today!

Here's the gang. I think the things to note is that Reese looks bigger than Noah and look how big Avery is getting! She is so alert.

Here's a picture from last Friday's bowling. Jen, Jonathan, Dave, Carissa, and Philip.

Here's Reese a week or so ago. We created a great "do" for her.

Here's the reason you haven't seen as many pictures lately. Reese keeps making this silly face at the camera. I try to tell her it's not her prettiest face, but she thinks it's hilarious.

Lastly, here is Reese today. She got her first Birthday present from GrandmaK. Her first pair of REAL shoes... and they are awesome! She is 11 months old and getting ready to walk. She is standing alone and has taken one step a couple times but immediately falls to the ground. It makes her nervous. She is also protesting any baby food... she has moved up in the world and is eating food just like us grown-ups. She continues to be a VERY happy baby (but can still work the tears for attention). In just one month she will be a year old. I don't even believe it. We love her so much! Being a Mom is for sure the greatest blessing in the world!

Have a good week!

We took a trip to the pumpkin patch. (If you read the Connelly blog, you already know all the details) It was a crazy hot fall day, but we enjoyed ourselves. Reese is looking forward to going back next year when she can walk around!
Reese loving all the pumpkins.

Cheering and clapping...
Avery didn't want to miss a thing!
Noah loved running around and checking out all the cool things. Next year he is riding a pony!

First Word?

Listen carefully. Daddy has been working at this one with Reese! She is so smart! :)
