Mommy, Daddy, and Auntie's small group joined with Mimi, Poppy, Grandma, and Grandpa's small group to do a "Cars" theme. Daddy made this Mater costume for his truck.

Mommy insists that Magic Bear has always been at BB storytime, but he didn't capture my heart until this week.
I sure hope Magic Bear is at the next BB meeting!

This weeks' Show Us Your Life topic is "Costumes". Here are a few family favorites from before my time.
This is Mommy's all-time, most favorite, bestest costume ever! Mimi made it for her when she was a little girl. Mommy says she remembers being so excited as she watched Mimi spend days gluing cotton balls to footed jammies...and even more excited when she won the "Most Adorable" prize at her church's Fall Carnival.
Mommy had big plans to make a very similar costume for me this year, but she changed her mind when people kept asking, "Won't she just try to eat the cotton balls?"
(Oh, you guys know me too well! )
Here's a more recent costume of Mommy's. The school she taught at often had "Book Character Dress-Up Day" on Halloween.
Can you tell what book "character" Mommy is supposed to be?She's the coconut tree from "Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom"!
Mommy came home from teaching last Halloween to find Daddy wearing this little number: Their small groups theme for Trunk or Treat was "candy"...so daddy decided to use a TV box to make a costume of his favorite candy! I hear he was a big hit at Trunk or treat.
Remember this pumpkin from a few weeks ago?
As of right now, this is the only costume I've ever worn.
It's not my Halloween costume, though!
That one will be debuted at Trunk or Treat this weekend...so you'll have to check back here on Saturday night if you want to see it!

This time, we were joined by "Aunt" Tara, Preston, and Ian.
Preston and Ian just got this new double jogger stroller. It looked super comfy!
We found a lovely shaded spot that was perfect for snapping a few pictures. Someone had even put this big 'ol pumpkin up on the bench for us! There were about 50 kajillion pumpkins at the Arborteum, but this was the only one I took a picture with this time.
Ian and I had fun playing in the (almost) dry grass. Ian was very sweet about sharing his toys with me...even though I only wanted to play with the toys he was holding.
Did you notice that Ian has a Top Model pose, just like my cousin Micah?
Perhaps the biggest news of the day, though, was when Mommy said, "Ok, I'll admit it...that bow is too big."
I know I've never heard those words before!

Mommy and Daddy think it is cute that I have figured out how to "perform" for the camera.

Mommy noticed it when she was taking this picture of me. She thought it was a bruise, but couldn't figure out where I got it from. Then, she found another bruise on the other side of my leg. She was getting a bit worried, until she tried wipping the "bruises" away.
The spots were from the blueberries she had for breakfast this morning. She must have had some blueberry juice left on her hands when she changed my diaper.

Apparently, lots of other babies thought it was a great day for Arboretuming, too. I loved looking at all of the babies and big kids who were there, but you couldn't tell that from my serious-girl expressions.
After a while I got tired of being stuck in my stroller...

I even got to play with a ball for the first time. Can you believe we don't have any of these at my house?
It was really fun to watch Preston show off his scooter skills.
I even got to try out Preston's helmet.
I sure was in my serious-girl mode on Tuesday night!

*Mommy would like you to know that she did put socks on my feet. They just wouldn't stay on for long.*

Mommy could use a few bow photographing tips, don't you think? It also wouldn't hurt if she had a cutie little model for all of these bows. Hmmm, wonder where she could find one of those?
