Pretending we're photographers

I really wanted to get photos of Matea at two. Being nauseas and a bit scatter brained this pregnancy meant getting a professional photographer wasn't going to happen. So one Saturday morning Jacob and I decided to try our hand at photography. We headed down to the bosque and snapped a ton of photos. While not the best quality we got a few that at least capture what she looked like at age 2.

Matea's B-day

Matea Had her 2nd Birthday party today. I was going to do a big party but with morning sickness kicking my butt it got downgraded to just family and one friend. It ended up being perfect though.

The them was barn/farm and I had a fun time searching pinterest for ideas.
The cupcakes were the funnest to make. We also had veggies and fruit, pigs in a blanket, Mac&cheese, and chocolate milk

I didn't get a great picture of the decorations but there were red streamers, cow balloons, and all her farm toys out to play with

We played pin the tail on the donkey, sang old McDonald, and made paper plate roosters and sheep
After trying to grab the candle she blew it out successfully.

Her party guests- Anodyne, Hagan, Matea, Sophie, and Sonora


Halloween really began with Jacob's work party. His office does group costumes and this year was super heros. Obviously Jacob went as Superman.
Matea loved her dog costume that my sister in law Jessica let us borrow (thanks again)

That night Jacob switched into his dog costume and I took my dogs for a walk 

After going around our block we went back and passed out candy

And then played in the leaves
