Too Pink

We took Lauren to shop for new
winter pajamas today and she
had to pick her own based
on color, I held up one pair
and asked if she liked them
to which she replied
"No mama too pink"
So, she came home with green ones
since pink ones are not acceptable :)

So Big

Lauren is getting so big or at least it seems that way, she is really doing well with manners now
such as please, thank you, your welcome and bless you if you sneeze. She is also very loving and cuddly and loves to sit and be held and read to which is neat. she is getting to be really funny also and will carry on a conversation with us now and that makes us laugh considering a few months ago she wasn't talking at all. She will repeat anything she hears, I took her Christmas shopping with me on Friday and she came home and told daddy everything we bought and who it was for :) Thank goodness none of it was his. She still refuses to go to the potty though and will not wear big girl panties at all, even Dora ones. Not sure what the issue is with that but apparently she is not ready.

Trunk or Treat

We took Lauren to something called
trunk or treat, it was fun.
people decorate the trunks
of their cars and hand candy
out of them, Santa was even there. This is my favorite picture of Lauren
Santa at trunk or treat ? Lauren still doesn't like him :)
whoo hoo, candy..... and santa is far far away
