Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween to all of you GUYS & GHOULS!!!
The big boys dressed up throughout the week for Red Ribbon Week activities, but Tanner's turn came today.  
He & his school friends wore costumes to school & ended the school day with a fun fall parade.
He was adamant about being a teddy bear this year, but his morning didn't get off to the best start. 
Poor thing, he was trying to put on a happy face!
Fortunately, his dispositon improved by the time my mom dropped him off at school & he had a fun rest of the day!
Such a cute teddy!!
This little punkin was happy to celebrate her 1st Halloween with a belly full of . . . MILK!! I could hardly take this cuteness overload!
After Tanner got home from school, this pair had fun on FaceTime with TeTe CoCo, looking foxy in her catwoman getup!
Time to trick-or-treat!!
MaMa & the boys headed out to trick-or-treat while Kallie & I stayed behind to hand out candy.
I handed over door duties as soon as they came back!
Now we're off to pig out on some candy . . .

Bringing Our Girl Home

On Sunday, we were discharged from the hospital & brought our little princess home!
She looked absolutely adorable in the precious monogrammed gown, bonnet, diaper cover, & booties my mom got for her.
And you would never know it took 2 feedings & a mini diaper blowout clean up before we got these beautiful pics!! :)

This face!!! Ahhh!!!

Kallie Larkin Bowens Arrives!!

Well . . . our little princess has arrived!!!
My c-section was scheduled for this past Thursday, October 23 & she stayed put until then.
We were so excited to get to the hospital & have her delivered . . .

Tim & I had to be at the hospital at 5:30 a.m.
for my 7:30 a.m. surgery.
Our little early bird tagged along.
My nurse wrote the goal of the day --
Kallie Larkin Bowens
8 pounds  *  21 inches  *  7:52 a.m.
Kallie's 3 VERY EXCITED big brothers.
Don't you love their shirts?!
(I know it's hard to read them, but you can see what each says above pics of them holding KL)
Kallie's proud daddy . . . already wrapped around her little finger!
Kallie's Big Brother Tanner
Kallie's Bigger Brother Taylor
Kallie's Biggest Bro Timothy
Her onesie says it all!
We had LOTS of visitors & treats during our hospital stay, which shows how many people already love Kallie & support our fam. I'm sad I didn't get pics of them all, but here are a few!
Of course, the best treat of all was this precious girl...
