I asked Fritz what he wanted to be and he insisted on a cowboy. I should've guessed, knowing his obsession with boots. I borrowed these cute cowboy boots from his cousin and then put all the rest of the costume together from our costume basket and some scrap leather fabric I had in my stash. It took a total of 30 minutes to put together all their costumes and the boys are very happy, so it's a Halloween win!

I really enjoy coordinating Halloween costumes (like our circus costumes a couple of years ago or our Harry Potter costumes from when William was a baby) but this year, I was just too tired and didn't have the desire to do much. So, when William said he wanted to be a ghost this year, I wanted to give him the highest of fives. I cut up an old sheet and filled in the eye holes with some black nylons. Boom. Done. Then I had this adorable sheep costume that I bought for $6 at Last Chance when I was pregnant with Louisa. It is so cute I can hardly stand it.

As soon as I found out I was having a girl, I started thinking about how I was going to decorate Louisa's nursery. It was honestly more exciting to me than the clothes and hair bows, but those things were exciting too. :) We were living at my parent's house when we had Louisa so I didn't get to nest by setting up her nursery, but I purchased everything I needed so that I would be ready for when we moved! Ha! When we moved here to Seattle, it was so exciting for me to finally set it all up!

My baby girl is already 4 months old! I can't believe it! With all the moving and stress of the last few months, I feel like I didn't relish in the newborn phase as much as I would have liked. I guess that's also the way it goes when you're the third child, but it still makes me a little sad.

I'm so behind on blogging so here's my catch-up! Last weekend, we went over to one of the many parks by Lake Sammamish by our house. It was one of the last few sunny days and the weather had the perfect fall "bite" in the air. The boys loved playing by the water and looking for "treasures" (you know, sticks, clam shells, leafs, rocks... typical boy stuff). Then we had hot dogs and potato salad and watched the sun start to go down, which made those beautiful fall leaves create the most stunning golden glow. I really felt like life is really, really good in that moment. I love my family!

In every house we've lived in, I've liked to take pictures and do a house tour. Maybe it's interesting to you and maybe it's not (don't we all secretly love to sneak a peak of other people's homes?) I love decorating my home and I think it's so fun to look back and remember our lives there. It's also entertaining to look at what I thought was cute at the time and how I did things on the budget I had. My house certainly isn't fancy, but it's home!
