Happy Halloween (and a little anna art)

oh how time flies!
I can't believe it's been a whole year since this:

I guess we had so much fun last year that we decided to repeat.  But this year was more fun trick or treating with kiddos.  They have minds of their own and can ring doorbells now!  Hooray. Thanks for coming over friends!

Grandma and grandpa buhler got to join in on trick or treating from Utah via skype.  what a treat!  Julia's got a mug face.  She's a tough bunny.

 Avrie was downing the chocolate!  Go avrie Go!  (thank you dorothy!)
 Zachie's fav was the lollipops.
Brittney has started a preschool for the friends.  She is amazing.  So the other day during "roomtime" Anna said "mommy!, come see the people I drew!"  So I went in there and totally freaked out!  Anna had drawn these people!  Complete with 2 arms, 2 legs, hands and feet.  What?  I didn't think she was old enough for that!  I certainly didn't teach her!  But brittney did!  Yesterday she called me in to look at her letter A's!  Britt has taught anna to write her name too.  I am so blessed to have Brittney in my life.

happy happy birthday richard dear

happy days will come to you all year!  

here is a happy birthday video from Anna.  Julia pitched in too a little.

the only way to get anna to actually stay still and not totally grab the camera was to semi-distract her.  You would be proud though, she's watching football.

trick or treat

 I have had a dog costume for a YEAR that I wanted anna to wear.  But now that she's 2 she knows what she wants.  and she wants to be a MEAN WITCH.  The one from the wizard of oz.
 So I gave in and bough her a 2$ witch hat from target. 
 See that little black blob on the sidewalk?  That's anna trick or treating.  She wanted me to carry her.  As you can see below I only have 2 arms - and they are occupied with a very cute little bunny.

 Kaelie and her little lady(bug).  So cute.
 Mean witch, ladybug, wizard-thing, cheerleader (u of u!!)  JJ is INTO the candy!

 Look at her go for that candy!
 Ahhh she got a sucker!
 I think grace looks cute in this picture!
 When we got home, I put Julia down to crawl around while I made dinner.  I heard a funny noise so I came over.  Somehow she got inside here!  She couldn't have been happier being stuck there.

Oh kaelie took this cute pic of me and julia.  isn't she a doll.

around the house

 Julia is so happy.  I just can't get mad at her for waking up at 2:30 EVERYNIGHT for the past few weeks.  What the what is up with that.

This is how we find anna almost every morning.  With her nose stuck in a book.  She loves books if you didn't know.
 She wakes up, turns on her light, turns on her music, crawls back into bed, puts the covers on, and stacks books on top of her, as seen in picture below.  (although these pics are taken during "room time" about 8:30 in the morning after she's been groomed)
 Grace and Anna making a mad face.  We walked home from Britt's house and got POURED on.  It was crazy rain.
Anna is always helping me with projects!  I wanted to clean out my closets, so here anna is, helping me rearrange with the help of her little wagon!
