Zelda turns five

Zelda turns FIVE today. We love this amazing, adorable girl. 💕

This year for Halloween Ellie wanted to be Electrike (a pokemon), Zelda wanted to be a ballerina, and Susie didn't want to wear a costume.

Ellie has known for probably about two months that she wanted to be Electrike. She chose it sometime in September, and never wavered. Zelda, on the other hand, went through a couple ideas before she landed on ballerina, but once she got there she knew that's what she wanted to be.

Susie refused to wear a costume for our church trunk or treat, but I did get her to wear this bumblebee costume on Halloween for like twenty minutes. Each of the girls have worn it on Halloween when they're two, and Jason was a bumblebee when he was that age, so it's tradition.

She took it off when she came in from the backyard and refused to put it back on for trick-or-treating, wanting to wear pajamas instead. That was fine with us.

Zelda, super excited for trick-or-treating:

Almost time:

Green Tree Frog

I just went into the backyard with some shears in an attempt to whack down enough of the four-foot-tall grass to be able to use our lawnmower on what was left (the meadow/cornfield we currently have growing is way beyond its capabilities), but then I found this guy. And decided that eh, we’re way past mowing our lawn anyway. I think we’ll just consider the backyard a wildlife refuge at this point.
