-Mama, Dada, ninny, hey, no-no (and shakes her head), yes, Pop, sissy.

1st Birthday Party: 
We celebrated on Tangier with all her family. The theme was pink and gold with some unicorns thrown in! She had a lamb smash cake, which is an Eskridge tradition. The guests enjoyed a pink two tiered cake, ice cream, and unicorn and crown sugar cookies to eat. She opened wayyyy too many gifts and enjoyed all the attention. She wore a pink tutu with a 'one' onesie and had two different head pieces: a "1" party hat and a gold crown. To end the party Harlow opened her last gift which was a 'big sister' shirt. Can't believe our baby is one!

Halloween 2015

Halloween was so fun this year and I know it will only get better as Harlow gets older. This year our theme was Peter Pan (minus Pan). I got Harlow's costume and Joe's hook and hat from Amazon. I found my nightgown from Goodwill ($4!) on the Friday before Halloween -- I got really lucky on that find. From there we just used what we had! I love semi-homemade costumes and you save so much more money that way. 

We started out the night with trunk or treat at a local church and then rushed home to pass out candy. Our neighborhood is a hot spot, so we enjoy being home for it. 

We ran out of candy and had to turn off our outside lights. We had way more kids this year than last -- we actually had candy left over last year! So next year we will have to stock up!
