And this is my pile of Christmas. It's embarrassing - but the truth. Boxes arrive and they get thrown on the mountain. I'll get around to wrapping...maybe.

Josie has a free spirit, a love for learning, and a knack for making people smile. She's outgoing and friendly...fun to be around. She's the life of any party. She loves her brothers SO much...and her papas (grandpas), too. She can go from playing with her Princess barbies to throwing elbows on a soccer field (while wearing PINK, of course) - without missing a beat.
Josie - you are amazing. We love you just the way you are... Forever.

|This is what happens when you say, "Josie - look like a princess." |
All credit goes to Sleeping Beauty.
As you can see - we had our share of outtakes. Once pictures were finished - we turned them loose in the town center. I asked the photographer to keep shooting because I knew she would capture their personalities.
For a girl who threw a FIT about taking dance classes...Josie sure knows how to put on a show.
Christmas Cards will be in mailboxes soon...or at least before Christmas.

We can all take a moment to remember last year's debacle - when Josephine acted like we were torturing her:

Last night - Nolan was up to his usual antics...but then, it was SPAGHETTI night. And he had a serious attitude change:

|Make sure you click on this picture so you can see her true disappointment.|
Me: "Ohhhh, wow, Jos - look this is called the Detroit Princess. How cool is that?"
Josie: :SQUEAL: " I WUV PRINCESSES!!!"
We spend a few minutes looking at the boat as we walk past it. We are about to walk away.
Me: "Josie, sit down - I want to get your picture by the boat."
Josie: "I'm SO mad. I wanted to see the Princess."
Me: "It's not an actual princess, Josie, it's just a boat called Detroit Princess."
Josie: (as I'm taking this picture) "I don't like THIS princess."
Detroit Water Ice Factory. You can read about it on the sign. Interesting idea. Love that it is benefiting the Detroit community. FYI - Josie got Pink Lemonade and it was super tasty! And pink.
I'd like to tell you it was a stress-free, fun-loving two hours with Daddy downtown - but you all know better. Why? Because. Kids.
We set off to spend time together: check.
Enjoy the weather: check.
And eat lunch: check.

I don't want to hate on Halloween - because we do enjoy it. But holy cow - this year - I feel like it lasted FOREVER. It was a LONG month. Last week alone - we had 3 different Halloween celebrations...all leading up to Halloween Night. Phew.
Here is the Trick or Treating crew before we left. As you can see - Wonder Woman was upset. "Wonder Woman DOESN'T WEAR A COAT!!!" It's true, but I'm 99% sure she WOULD wear one IF she lived in Michigan.
And, finally, the loot. It was a fun night! But I don't hesitate when I say, "BRING ON THE PUMPKIN PIE!"
