Happy Halloween!

I sure do hope that everyone has an awesome Halloween today and tonight! Lucy kind of got screwed this year and she is wearing her flamingo costume from last year. It is so cute and she didn't do any trick or treating in it last year, so really no one saw it. I will post pictures of that tomorrow. She practiced the idea of trick or treating last night and as soon as she saw the candy, she got it. Trust me, this girl is going to be beside herself when she realizes that all of our neighbors have candy for her. Here are some pictures from her test run of trick or treating. By the way, PLEASE go HERE and leave a comment saying that you think that the pink flamingo named Lucy should win!! Consider this a little hint as to what my secret news may be. Subtle, huh? Anyway, here is the flamingo in all her glory. Now, go vote for us!!

About the new blog and password, again, don't worry, I still haven't sent out the address or password. I am waiting a bit longer. Shouldn't be too long though. I have LOVED some of the guesses as to our surprise. I wish that it was that we won the lottery! I got a good laugh over the reality show or Lucy being in a movie guesses. Just so you know, years ago I did try out for Amazing Race with my friend Liz. I am still shocked that we didn't get chosen. Our video was awesome. Whatever, their loss.

I got some really adorable pictures of Lucy today. She has always loved playing in my shoes. I have written before how she is more than capable of getting on a pair of my super high heels, clunk around in them, bring them back to the closet, and change into a new pair - all with no assistance. Today I got some pictures of her playing. Have you seen the pictures Brad Pitt took of Angelina in W? My favorite is the one of Angelina and Zahara both in heels. Such a precious picture.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

I almost cannot pick a favorite - she is too perfect! But that sassy, girly expression on Lucy's face in the one where her hands are on the door or window - that is perfection! Love it!

From the photo contest prize (a double stroller) my guess is a sibling for Lucy! YEAH!!

thurmans said...

Are the pink shoes by JS as well? They are awesome!

Well, yes, subtle indeed. LOL. Ok, so you are obviously having another baby, but now I wonder... adoption or pregnancy? Hmmm, I guess I will need to wait and find out. Maybe it is twins?

The flamingo outfit looks even cuter this year! I am sure she doesn't have much recollection of it last year anyway.

Michelle said...

I knew it! Details! I want details! Cough em up, girlie.

Loving the pink flower shoes, btw.

Oh Kelly, just logged on after a little while and was devastated to learn that you are going to password protect and I might have missed the boat regarding being on the list! So, please can you let me have the password! I am a Mum from Cardiff in the UK and have been following you and Lucy since the beginning. I hope you consider me worthy!

I love the flamingo costume, and my guess for the secret is that your having a brother or sister for Lucy!

Laura said...

Oh my gosh, these are my favorite photos of Lucy ever. Just beautiful. Lucy is still adorable in her flamingo costume, even if it is a "rerun" of last year. :)

Norah said...

HAppy Halloween beautiful Lucy!

April said...

Oh I loved that photo of Angelina and Zahara, great inspiration! Yours turned out so cute.

Kelly and Brent said...

I think this is one of my favorite post of Lucy pictures! I am in love with her in those heels and the picture of her leaning against the window looking back is so Sassy! Great job on the pictures.

I thought maybe Lucy was doing some modeling but I now know you are having another little one. Are you adopting? Oh I hope you don't password protect your site. I love following your journey and Lucy and my daughter Madison are only a week apart in age. If you truly decide to password protect let me know...I would love to get the password so I can continue to follow you.

Elaine said...

A sibling for Lucy, huh? Why else would someone want a double stroller? Hmmmmm??????? I just love the photos of her with your shoes. They are amazingly cute. Wish we lived in your neighborhood becuase I would totally volunteer my kids as practice subjects!

Kelli said...

Yeah, I'm done being subtle. I have a Halloween picture that's going to blow the whole thing. Enough about me! I love Lucy in the flamingo costume and I love the other pics. Such a cutie!

Josh and Marcie said...

I would love to know more!! My heart is pounding and it is driving me crazy! I also love the pics and wish so much you could take pictures of Maeley! You are very talented and you have inspired so many. Just look at how many people have commented wanting to follow your journey!

Jennifer said...

Kelly, those pictures of the shoe sequence are just priceless. My favorites are the 4th & 6th one of the shoes :)

I love the hint as to your surprise...can't wait to hear exactly what it is!

Michelle said...

Love, Love, Love the shoe pics!!! They are priceless and Lucy is amazingly adorable! I love your eye for photography...I'm sure you'll business will be a huge success!!!

OK Poopsie, I voted for my flamingo!!! Good luck with that and with keeping your buds in suspense!! I LOVE the shoe pics and the one in her coat! I hope that trick or treating has been a blast. I had 38 little munchkins, and I think I'm about out of candy, so will probably turn out my lights!! The weather was great. Happy Halloween! What does password protect mean? Only so many visitors?

Mom said...

Kelly--don't know what I hit that made me show up as anonymous. Oh well. And, the pink shoes are darling, but make my feet hurt looking at them. LeeLee

The Hines Family said...

Omygosh, sibling....pg or adoption? hmmmm. Love the one of her standing with her head turned in the pink shoes. These are great photos! Too cute!!!

Chandra said...

Love the photos! My fav is #6 of the high heels shots. That photo is amazing, I love her arched back and the expression on her face. You did an amazing job on that photo Kelly!

I absolutely love the pictures of sweet Lucy. I am a mother of 3 Korean born sweeties and have followed your blog for some time now. I got to you from other families that adopted through Dillon Int. and were adopting from Vietnam. I hope you will consider it ok to let me continue. I adore your blog and your stories.

taylorchloejake said...

That is the cutest costume ever! I totally made my girls wear the same costume as last year too! Glad I'm not the only one. I knew #2 was on the way! Can't wait to hear more about it.

Erin said...

So....I'm guessing that the "subtle hint" is that you are expecting twins?!?!?! I have identical twin boys (Brady and Drew) who just turned 11 last week (I'm WAY too young to have 11-year-olds!), plus we have a daughter, Ella-Kate who is 5. I remember the twin stroller well! Congrats if that's the case! I'd still love to be a part of your new blog, even though I'm not computer literate enough to have my own blog....hope that you'll still consider me!

Nicki said...

Uh-oh! She's pulled out the coats! heehee. I love love love those shoe pics!! And those pink shoes are total awesomeness, just as an aside :)

I love your lack of subtlety! I think you've mastered the art of coming out of the closet without coming clean at all! :)

mimi lam said...

I love her costume, she looks different in it this year, poise, sassy, flirtateous, and like a model, i certainly will vote for Lucy, I believe perhaps twin is in the baking??, I can't wait to find out, good luck Lucy, I hope you will win, you are such a lovely flamingo.

Anonymous said...

it might not be a sibling but siblings for lucy.

if there was a miss sassy award, lucy would definately take first place.

Mab said...

Loving the shoe photos....

Little too much cuteness in one post :) Beautiful as always!

Ronja said...

I voted for Lucy and I am really excited for you to soon need a double stroller! I still bet you adopt again, since you once said you had a big trip coming up. Good Luck!!!
And the pictures are sooo cute!

Kate said...

I'm so stealing the shoe photo shoot idea. How adorable! Happy Halloween!

LawMommy said...

She is adorable as a flamingo.

I am LUSTING over your pink shoes. (Except that I would totally kill myself if I attempted to walk in them. I am suck a clutz. But, they are SO pretty.)

Sara said...

Wicked cute shoes -- both pairs. I can't to see you wear them pregs (that is still my guess) :) And wanted to tell you that I also tried out for the Amazing Race! Their loss for sure! Have a good weekend!

Ali! said...

Lucy in her flamingo costume is absolutely adorable. Her facial expressions are priceless!
Another baby in the future???
I'm excited to hear the news!!!!

Christina said...

That flamingo costume is seriously adorable - it deserves a rerun (and maybe once more next year, too!)! Good luck on the contest!!! I was too late to vote, but I am sending lots of vibes out for you. ;o)

Oh my gosh, the pictures of her in your shoes are too precious! and I have to say, dang girl, you've got some sweet shoes!

somethingcheeky said...

Gorgeous, all of them!! What a cute flamingo!!

Dianna said...

Dawn said...

Great costume!! Sorry I missed the vote, AND the contest. I had quite a cute little skunk that I would have liked to enter! Oh well? Twins??????

KrisJ said...

So super cute! And I want the pink shoes! lol I love the flamingo I thought it was super cute last year and love that she wore it again!

Jo said...

Okay, you are killing me here!!! :)

Those photos are wonderful of Lucy, super cute shoes too!!

Jess and Paul said...

I love these pictures SO much. Lucy looks as sweet as can be in her mama's shoes.

I think it might be twins too...I kind of got a little feeling after your last post and a comment of yours on another blog.

Seriously, how long are you going to make us wait? I think you are enjoying this... :)

Leslie & Shaune said...

lucy is adorable in that costume! i love it!

ok, now spill the beans once and for all girl. i'm dying to hear the det's.

S. said...

love those pink shoes, she is adorable in them! don't think I could walk in them.

Flamingo, precious.

I think you live in the same neighborhood as one of my best friends...must e-mail you about that.

Please don't forget me when you send out the pword.

Elonda said...

I love the pictures of Lucy. You have such talent. She reminds me a lot of my oldest daughter. Sassy!! My girls were princesses for many years in a row. So we have reused many costumes.

I would like to be included in the new blog. Here is my email. elonda5@hotmail.com.

Rebecca said...

Lucy looks even cuter this year as a Flamingo and who would think that would be possible!

I left you a comment last week with my guess, but it didn't post. I was going to guess "addition to your beautiful family." I had thought preggers cause when I read your birthday post, you mentioned 2 naps and I thought at the time "hmmmmm...."
And then I wondered about what country you would adopt from since Vietnam is closed. Maybe Ethiopia??

Winning the lottery would be nice too.

Can't wait to hear the happy news!!

StaceyF said...

Happy Halloween Miss Lucy! We did not have many trick-or-treaters so I will send try to send a treat bag to LeeLee and Papa's! You are a mighty precious Flamingo!

Emily said...

the shoes pics are too cute.i find lulu in my shoes all of the time:) this weekend i caught her in her diapers dragging a deflated balloon, wearing a pair of my pointed flats. haha.

Kristy said...

Oh my gosh those are precious shoe pictures and ones to cherish forever!!!! And the Flamingo pics are to cute for words!!1

Kristy

Erica said...

Hmmm...I'm afraid my mom would want to add Lucy to her collection of pink flamingos!

Sara said...

LOVE the shoes pictures! You need to frame some of those for her room.

Rebecca said...

Oh my gosh, adorable pictures as always! Look at her in those heels!! And what a fun costume, that is one of the cutest I've seen!

Mrs.B said...

SHe looks just as cute this year! as for the secret...we are all on pins and needles, you should just spill, we will all understand if you just cant keep it to yourself any longer and it should accidently slip out...

The Crow's said...

ok, considering the prize was the twin stroller. You will obviously be needing it for someone.....
Love the photos of Lucy!
