just one week...

until halloween! 

so to celebrate, we took kendall to get her four month shots. just kidding. we really did do that, but to celebrate, i took pictures of the girls in their costumes at a park nearby (with my MIL's help). brooklyn couldn't get her costume on fast enough. she asked all day if it was five o'clock yet. i'd promised her all day that she'd get to wear her costume at five, and she didn't let me forget.

(my cute little witch and sad little giraffe)

i got some of the sweetest pictures of them. kendall wasn't super happy about it, but she put up with the camera in her face and let brooklyn hold her for a little bit. brooklyn was in heaven. posing left and right, she could have stayed in her witch costume all night.

on her 'broom'...

such a sad, cute little giraffe.

and here's the money shot...

luckily my MIL was there, because brooklyn had to go to the bathroom right in the middle of it all, while kendall was waking up in her car seat, and it really could have been a disaster for me. she also helped to get the girls looking up at the camera while i took the pictures.

last year, halloween day was just crazy and i didn't get a lot of good pictures of brooklyn in her costume, so i promised myself that next year (this year) i would take pictures in costumes before the actual trick-or-treating day. and i'm so glad i did.

we are super excited for halloween at our house. brooklyn for obvious reasons, and i just have always loved halloween day. there's an excitement in the air, definitely different from christmas, but i've always been excited for halloween. and having kids has totally brought back more of that excitement. i really can't wrap my brain around the fact that i have two little trick-or-treaters this year. 

my heart is absolutely full. 

sometimes when i step back, i really can't believe that they're mine. they try my patience more than any other humans on the planet, but i love them so much it hurts.
