Once upon a time, there was a shark, a mermaid and an elephant....

Friday, October 30, 2015
With the forecast changing daily all week for the all important trick or treating, I knew I had to get the kids in their costumes on a nice day just in case we had rain and clouds on Saturday. (Thankfully, the forecast seems to be maintaining for the better, so yay!) The kids are always way too hyped up about candy the actual day for me to get any decent pictures anyway.

I got Henry this shark costume last year after Halloween for like $4 and he decided this was his costume long ago. Claire's been wanting to be a mermaid basically all year as well so one of her presents was an updated Ariel dress since her others were all tattered and too well loved to don on Halloween night. And then Norah? Her favorite thing in the whole world is an elephant, so that's what we went with. In hindsight, I should have done Nemo or Flounder to complete the "theme", but oh well. I bought it a month ago but she finally decided she loves it and will grab the trunk and make elephant noises, so it wins, for sure. :)

For some reason, the kids were super cooperative (when all they were promised was a silly little dum dum sucker). They were so cooperative in fact, that after I said we were done, Henry says "What? We're done already?! That was fast. You didn't take very many pictures!".

Yes I did, buddy. And the candid ones are my favorite. So I put up lots of them.

Oh, and so is that Sigma Art 35mm. I die. It's basically delicious--if lenses can be delicious.


Claire's Under the Sea 4th Birthday!

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

I already posted a video of her birthday, but I thought I'd keep these here for documentation purposes too!

We had an Under the Sea celebration for our mermaid loving princess and even had Ariel herself run the fishing game and pop out to surprise all the little girls. It was a pretty epic moment and Claire still talks about having "another" mermaid party so Ariel can come.

Many thanks to Cakes by Emily for the gorgeous ruffle cake, Part Time Princess Parties for the fabulous Ariel and my friend Libby for all her sewing help and jellyfish knowledge.

Happy Birthday, Claire Bear!
