Cara's First Summer and Birthday

Like I said, I've been (not so) awesome at updating my blog. So here are some highlights of our summer featuring Cara ending with her first birthday!

Seven Months old and playing outside at Grandma's house.

Cara became proficient at the army crawl for quite a while.

Crawling! and in a cute dress from when my sisters and I were little.

Halloween 2012

Yes, apparently I do have a blog and yes I sometimes remember to update it. Also I just realized I haven't posted about Cara's birthday that was over 1 month ago!  Well I'll do this out of order since I am already doing the Halloween post and hopefully remember to do Cara's birthday next week. Yeah, we'll see.

We didn't do the complete family theme this year. We sort of split up. KC and I were District 12's Katniss and Peeta (pre-hunger games). Andrew and Isaac were characters from their favorite video game Minecraft and Will and Cara were classic Halloween, a pumpkin and a ghost.

Getting ready to go trick or treating.

The boys couldn't wait to get out and get going.
Cara practices walking while she tries on her ghost tutu. 

Katniss, Peeta and a pumpkin?

See? I got candy.

Isaac as a skeleton archer from Minecraft. After a while he got tired of the box head and just went around in the sweats.

Andrew as "Steve" from Minecraft. After a while he got tired of falling down (the box was too long so he couldn't bend his legs well) so he finished trick or treating early and spent the rest of the evening giving out candy on the porch.

Cara enjoys the treat or treat walk. It was beautiful weather for a Halloween in Utah.
 Here are the reference photos we used for our costumes.
