Happy Fall photo dump

In no particular order. 
Too cool for school - MK and Lil
Convention of the neked girls pre-shower time. Also, I outsourced potty training. (Not really, she was playing around but we did get some pee in there recently! Ha!)
Sophie's selfie of her mouth. She's 5 weeks with no thumb sucking and wears long socks over her hands each night to ensure she doesn't accidentally suck in the middle of the night. It seems to be working!
Nap post-birthday party, this one still sucks :)
Sophie makes me take pictures of the buns I do so she can critique, so there were like 5 of these pictures from the past few months.
Uncle Chad's hat
Dinner after Cade's football game. Aunt Megan and the wiggly toddlers
Saturday fall fun
Day off shopping with the girls. Ava modeling some Old Navy items :)
Preschool Halloween party planner 
Lilys preschool picture proof

MCM and 5 great spectators. Donny had the girls all over the course!! My parents and several girlfriends made it out to DC as well! A tad too windy and warm for a PR but I was pleased all in all. 
My running girlfriends after our final training run
Fuzzy MCM finisher picture
Molly wearing Ava's tee from 2008 the last time I ran MCM
Lilys lacrosse preview day with Sage and McKenna - too cute!
Afternoon at the rec center pool. Molly is the wildest kid yet 
Slides and swimming and no sunscreen on a teacher work day
Tradition = whipped cream from the can
Sophie requested to run with me one Sunday morning. She seemed to love just chattering away and having my full attention.
Spectating Ava's lacrosse scrimmage in style
The other two bundled babes. Ava played lacrosse this fall. It was mostly clinics and scrimmages, so more low key than the real spring season. 
Early October fireworks 

Molly and Mason are big buds

Football guys with Daddy
Restoration Hardware
Shopping with mommy and friends 
Lily saw Disney on Ice Frozen with her friend Grace!
Happy girls!
Our school broke ground on their new building. Papa was on the board and held a shovel!
Sophie played fall softball. The games were half player pitch and half coach pitch. She loved it.

Circus Halloween

One ringleader, two clowns, a popcorn seller, strong man and a lion for our circus theme on this year's Halloween. The popcorn seller and strong man were the day-of add ons. I wasn't sure what or if Donny and I would dress up, but it all fell together. I borrowed the popcorn bins from my mom and the muscle shirt from a friend and had everything else for us. 
I bought Ava's ringleader vest set and the clown tutu Molly wore (which was really Lily's but Molly begged for it). Lily by default decided to be the pink elephant Molly was slated to be, but Lily changed her mind with an hour to go. So I pinned pom poms from the craft cabinet on her, and she raided her dress up chest for tutus and a clown wig to be the second clown. Ava and I had fun taping crepe paper on a hula hoop for her ring of fire. Sophie wore a gymnastics leotard and really embraced her cartwheeling and baton twirling for her part.

 Papa and Gigi came over for a peak at the circus and to snap some photos for us. Thank you, Gigi! She snapped over 100!!

 Lily was being a silly clown
 Ava was such a good sport. Even after reporting to me that other 3rd grader did not theme-dress-up with their families she still played along.
 They loved the make up and face paint

 This clown was a lean mean trick or treating machine. I didn't even bring a bucket for her (I didn't think she'd realize it was candy but she's no dummy), so she collected it in fistfuls and shared a sister's bucket.

 Such a fun memorable night
