Day 305 | October 31, 2012 - Wednesday
What a crazy, hectic, go go go day. First , let me start by saying that the girls costumes were a hit and everyone immediately recognized them as m&m's. Second, I must remember that a 10 year old boy does not want to go trick-or-treating with mommy anymore:(

The day started with an 8:15 am assembly at Connor's school for him to receive his Honor Roll award. Unfortunately we had to leave immediately after this photo was taken because Kelsey had a doctor's appointment. So wish I had rescheduled it because Connor looked so upset to see us leave...I know he want to see us and show off Kelsey to his friends.

Today was also Kelsey's one year check-up with her pediatrician. Kelsey fell asleep on the way and pretty much cried the entire time we were there.
Her stats are: weight - 18lbs  (10th percentile)
                    height - 30 inches (75th percentile)
                    head - 43.7cm (15th percentile)

She's just like her sister--tall, thin, and small headed :) Taken with cell phone...

Then, after the kiddos got home from school we headed to a local Halloween parade and walked along Canal Street to trick or treat at each of the businesses along the street. Saw some super cute costumes but my girls were becoming quite the handful, daddy was getting a little impatient, and boy was getting tired of walking, so taking all the pics I wanted did not happen :( At least I got these...

Day 304 | October 30, 2012 - Tuesday
I decided to take the kiddos one last time to the pumpkin patch to grab a few more photos of them before Halloween ended. The "golden hour" was in all it's glory!

When we got home I put the girls in their matching skeleton pajamas. Yes, I'm that mom who loves dressing there children up in matching outfits but they look so cute :) Of course my girls can not sit still for more than a 1/10th of a second so getting a sweet, smiling photo will NEVER happen...but that's ok:)

Day 303 | October 29, 2012 - Monday

I still can't believe I have three daughters with the same birthday. The day started off with Kelsey and I bringing cupcakes to the girls school. All the teachers and children sang to the girls, enjoyed their cupcakes, then read a story. Later that day Pete's mom and our friend Janet came by to open gifts and eat cake. It was a perfect day for my perfect little princesses.

 The girls received lots of cute clothes and Kelsey got a new carseat. Practical gifts, I know, but that's what they needed. I also decided to hand over the camera to Connor while the girls open gifts so that I could participate--he did a pretty good job.

Janet made the girls their birthday cake. Strawberry cake with fresh strawberries, bananas, custard filling, and cream cheese/whipped topping icing...yummo!!!

She put each girls' name on it. Paige...


and little Kelsey

 I put each girl in the chair with the cake and tiara and sang to each one individually.

 Then it was Bree's turn.

 And finally Kelsey!
