2012 Costume Parade!

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

I really LOVED getting all these fun pics in my email inbox the past 24 hours! So many adorable kidlets in some super cute costumes! My boys enjoy dressing up year-round, but they especially dig it this time of year when there are costumes everywhere. We shop second-hand for almost everything, and costumes are no excpetion. All in all I spent $25 on our 5 costumes this year; 3 ninjas and 2 hippies. Here’s the only picture we managed to get of the five of us…our photographer was having, ahem, “techinical difficulties” with his fancy phone (sorry dad if you are reading this!).

Here are Andrea’s Chuggers from ChGavin (2) and Jon (4).

Here’s Melanie’s Pea in a Pod and hubby as Mario

Here are Sarah’s boys as Batman and Robin!

Here is the Sheppard family as Super Mario Brothers. Baby Luigi (Kit), Mario, Princess Daisy, and Princess Peach (Ginny)

Here’s Bekah’s daughter Paige the Zebra 18 Months Old!

Here are Jolene’s kids: Elizabeth (10months) as an ice cream cone. Her costume was designed to be used with their babycarrier (so clever!!). Nicholas (3yrs) he is a yummy delicious cheeseburger and big brother (10) is a mummy.

Here is Angie’s daughter Dorothy with furbabies as the Lion, the Tin Man, and the Scarecrow!

Here is Joy and her kids: Sage (7) a spider witch, Thomas (5) as Super Mario, and Abigail (20months) as a lady bug.

Here is Brena’s adorable baby panda bear!

Here is Brandi’s baby bird enjoying some mama’s milk!

Here is Annie’s family sporting a farm theme.

Here are Destiny’s twins as a Ghostbuster and Stay Puff Marshmallow Man!

Here is Monica’s litte Yoda!

Here are Jill’s kiddos; a safari tour guide and a zebra!

Here is Emily’s Pink Poodle!

And last but not least here is Karen’s little hot dog!

And the winner of the 2012 Breastfeed.Babywear.ClothDiaper 2012 Costume Contest is ….  Destiny’s twins in their Ghostbuster and Stay Puff Marshmallow Man costumes! Congrats Destiny both on the win and your beautiful babies!! An email with your prize will be sent soon! 🙂

Thanks a bunch everyone for participating in our costume parade…hope you had as much fun as I did looking at all the cute kids and cool costumes. 🙂


Fan Photo Friday: Furbabies!

Friday, July 27th, 2012

Recently my friend Michelle told me that during her pre-kid days she had pictures of her dog hanging in her office…and now she barely even takes pictures of her dog, let alone display them anywhere! My how things change once children enter into the family. BUT for today let’s honor our furbabies who for many of us were the very first “baby” we cared for. 🙂

Here is Michelle’s sweet family dog with an ouchie on her eye…poor girl! The other photo is of Michelle’s 3 adorable kidlets playing in the dog cage, lol!. Raise your hand if your kids like to play in the dog cage…I know mine do (see evidence below).

I swear I have toys for my boys, but the dog kennel, clothes line, and snowboard helmet are way more fun…

This is Jazmin’s then 6 month son and 11 year old old basset hound named Poe taking a nap together! Awwww! The bond between a boy and his dog is so special!

These cutie pies are Andrea’s two month old chihuahuas named Tallullah, Lola, and FeFe. She kept one and gave one to each of her sisters. Sounds like a perfectly sized litter! 🙂

Here’s what Melissa shared about this photo,  “This is our son Channing with our two dogs, Brixa the Great Dane, and Sergeant the Rottweiler.  He uses them as his own personal step stool, and play gym , lol.  They don’t ever seem to mind though!”.

Here’s a favorite picture of my two dogs Rex and Jonah snuggling together.

And similar to Jazmin’s photo, here’s my duo napping together. Abraham was so sleepy he fell asleep using Jonah as his pillow. Jonah patiently waited there while Abraham napped. 🙂

This picture was taken shortly after we adopted Rex. He was my very first dog so I had kind of special connection with him. One of the main reasons I wanted a dog was to have a running partner during my early morning runs. He was a great running partner for many years. He passed away earlier this year.

Thanks everyone who shared their furbaby photos with us! This week’s winner is Jazmin! Congrats Jazmin. 🙂 25 Milk Miles are headed your way…yahoo! 🙂
