Happy Halloween!! We aren't exactly sure whether or not Lilly and Reid are supposed to be monsters or bugs--but we decided to call them bugs...I mean, look at the antennas! Plus, it was easier to make punny jokes with (i.e. something about Lilly's costume bugs me--that is right, if you weren't with us, you missed out on a lot of those jokes...maybe next time for you). I took over a hundred pictures today (and Rachel you were worried I wouldn't get enough..haha!) so I narrowed it down to only the ones I thought you had to see but they are just so stinking cute there are still lots! Now these are two bugs that I wouldn't try to squash or shoo out of my house!!
GG Odie and Reid. He was A-dorable!!
Can you tell how much he loves her by the way he looks at her?? It just melts me!!
We went over to Aunt CiCi's and Uncle Greg's house and met up with cousins Marshall (the cowardly lion), Eva Kate (Dorothy), and Chel-Chel (Glenda the good witch)
They did the whole cast! Uncle Mike was the uncle on Wizard of Oz, Aunt GiGi was Auntie Em, Rachel was the tin (wo)man, Michelle was the good witch, Eva Kate was Dorothy, Marshall was the cowardly lion, and Jaimey was the scarecrow. How fun!!
and sooo adorable!
There is one little bug I could just kiss all over!
The sweeties!
Dorothy trying to kiss a bug! Lilly is not a big kisser--I can just now get her to give ME a kiss...and I am the mommy. After this picture Lilly got up and tried to walk away.
Aren't they cuties?
I love this picture!! Eva Kate is posing so nicely and Marshall falls in the flower bed!! Haha.
My loves!!
It looks like something is bugging Reid in this picture. Hehehe.
He is growing so fast!
Taking off!
Still running away from the pictures. Between me, DeDe, and Aunt CiCi--lets just say this day is well documented! (These are only the photos from my camera!!)
Pretty girls! Lilly posing with Chel-Chel.
I love the look on Lilly's face!
So sweet!
What is the deal with all of these pictures Mom?
DeDe and Lilly
Lilly signaling touch down in the tree! Whenever we clean up, as we throw stuff in the toy bins, I say "touchdown" and we practice signaling "touchdown". She is getting pretty good!
Our little bunch.
I think this is a great picture of Reid, me, DeDe, Lilly, and Matt.
Lilly and Aunt CiCi
Reid and DeDe. He is snug as a bug in a rug...hehehe. Nope, that still hasn't gotten old.
Having some fun getting their picture taken.

Seriously, I am going to just eat him up!
Reid's close-up
Lilly's close-up
Even this little bug likes cookies!
Ok, I have saved more posts so that I can just publish them each day. So starting Monday evening I should be able to post one each night next week--so our blog slacking is officially over. I am leaving this post up through Monday though because I want everyone to see these cuties.
Also, I am finally working on Thank you cards from Lilly's birthday and the sip-and-see (plus one special one for you Aunt Laverne for Lilly's gift at Reid's shower). Eek-I am behind!

Sip & See Lilly & Reid

A couple of Sundays ago, DeDe hosted a "sip and see" for Reid and Lilly. We were so blessed to have so many friends and family show up to see our babies! Here are some photos from the party. I wasn't able to get a picture of everyone that showed up so these are just a few of our sweet friends and family.

This is the White's youngest cute and so much hair!!

We were also extremely blessed to have been showered with Wal-Mart and Target gift cards for our babies. This past Sunday we went to Target and picked up a few things that we were in need of...all courtesy of our gift cards. BLESSED!
Lilly's pink coat...
Adorable hat and mittens (leopard with pink trim)...
I love these shoes for Reid!! They didn't have them any smaller, but I know when he grows into them, they will get worn a lot!
Brown shoes
and black shoes. The great news is that we still have gift cards left over for diapers and wipes...and we go through a LOT of those. Haha. Funny, but so so true! Thank you so much to everyone who came--it was so great to see you all!!

5. Teresa at --Teresa has a very well-rounded blog that frequently stars her adorable little grandkiddos.
6. Emily at --She has cute kiddos that are close together for mine, but even if she didn't I would give her this award solely for the reason that she already has her Christmas decorations totally up!! Haha. Awesome.
