It's been quite a few months since I last documented our "first day", but I like how it captures the everyday bits of life. Here's our November 1st, in the parts where I took a picture (everything else was mostly laundry).

I had to do some sewing on Wednesday night to prepare Cadie's Tinkerbell costume (the dress was done for the birthday party back in August, but we needed a little cape like the jacket Tink wears in The Secret of the Wings). I also had to sew her Deborah costume for All Saints Day at school, which they celebrated Friday.

|I made that Belle dress too! Our buddy E borrowed it!|
The girls were happy with their costumes. Cadence knew for months that she would be Tinkerbell, but Piper kept changing her mind before settling on a "puma cat." She learned about pumas on Go, Diego, Go! and has been telling people facts about them.
Finally, here's Cadence in her Deborah costume, ready to go to school on Friday.

Last week, our littlest girl turned 3. She requested a chocolate cake with vanilla frosting (I did a variation on our favorite friday cake and simple buttercream). Piper is so...herself. One of our friends was watching her at the girls' birthday party this weekend and commented on how she just doesn't care what everyone else is doing. She was going to do her own thing and have fun. On the other hand, she usually lets her big sister have her way and is happy to hand over a toy or a snack. I have her here next to me to answer some birthday questions.
Favorite color: pink (this is new)
Favorite food: chicken and fries, like at Chick-fil-a
Favorite book: Little People Zoo Book
Favorite show: Dinosaur Train
Favorite Toy: Applejack pony
Favorite song: Dinosaur train song
Favorite activity: drawing and "playing with my toys when I'm a big girl"
Favorite movie: Frozen "I'm not scared of Marshmallow. I'm not scared of that guy...Marshmallow turns out to be a good guy."

She got some special things for her birthday. Cadence gave her this green toys flower building set and you can see the $3 she got from her buddy GrandDado. She also got a suitcase from Nana and Dadder (which she had really been wanting) and a really cool Princess Anna costume, made by Dassa. In addition to a few little things from Matt and me, we took her to Walmart and let her pick out a present. We weren't sure what to expect, since she'd been saying she wanted everything from "all the headbands" to "another yellow snake." She examined a lot of things in the princess/dolly aisle, under the supervision of Cadence, of course. But as soon as she saw Applejack pony, a stuffed version of this My Little Pony, she didn't even want to look at anything else.
