Halloween and other random stuff

We had a fun time at the Hatch/Tucker family (Mark's side) Halloween party on Friday night. Natalie was the cutest ladybug ever, I was a bunch of grapes, and Mark was a leaf-blower. If you look closely at his hat you'll see the leaf hanging in front of his face which he would blow. haha, punny! We had a little costume parade and contest that Natalie actually walked in with everyone else but we didn't win. Oh well! It was so fun to see everyone's costumes. My costume got a lot of laughs but boy was it uncomfortable! I attached all the balloons to one of Mark's dress shirts so luckily I could take it off and be normal when I wanted to. Plus I couldn't hold Natalie while wearing it. She didn't really like her costume, but eventually got used to it and was a happy girl. Here's a little movie of her in the costume so you can see the dots on her back at the end. She was not a happy camper!

On another note, she gets really excited when Mark comes home from work, and even calls him "dada" now. It's so cute, and the other day I caught her glee on video.

Our friends the Kishpaugh's came to visit and brought their little girl Ava to play with Natalie. They are the same age and are so cute together! Natalie was a little shy at first but she eventually warmed up to Ava and they had a great time playing.

Whenever I open the fridge Natalie makes a beeline for it. I don't know what on earth is so interesting about it (maybe the fact that it is unexplored territory?) but she can get there so fast. The other day I left it open and let her look inside for a minute. She was sad when I told her it was time to close it. Good thing she isn't strong enough to open it herself!

Well, that's all for now. Love you all!

I love that in your halloween picture Mark and Natalie are all close and cuddly but mama grapes is like two feet away! You looked so cute and that was really creative!
