Yesterday, Claire built her first snowman. As you can see by its size, she didn't make it on her own. As you can also see from the progression of the pictures, the mittens are not a big hit in Claire's world.

Claire was so surprised to see her whiskers and little black nose. She was smiling at herself in the mirror and pointing at her nose.
Funnier still, that particular mirror that she's standing in front of is directly across from our front door. Tonight a little boy came to trick or treat and stopped in his tracks and said to his dad, "They've got another Darth Vader in there!" Of course, he was only seeing himself in the mirror, but we thought it was hillarious. Hope you all had a nice Halloween.
Yes, we were carving pumpkins this morning. Yes, I realize it is October 31. But how long do carved pumpkins last anyway? Stay tuned for pictures of a very cute cat later on today, but for now, pumpkin carving pictures will have to suffice.
We had some friends visit last weekend. They have a little girl only about 10 weeks older than Claire. I think everyone thought it would be fun to see them play together... Well... they don't really play together. Claire tried to give Charlotte a hug, Charlotte ran away. They did swing next to each other, but that doesn't make for great photographs. We had fun, nonetheless, and maybe the next time we see them, the girls will be interested in playing together.

This being the first weekend of college football, we couldn't help but show off Claire's football wear. Today, while I was at the NU game, Jeff tried the cheesehead on Claire. Then, when I got home from the game, I took some pictures in the new sweatshirt I got Claire at the game. Personally, I think she looks a lot better in purple than in a yellow foam hat, but who am I to judge?
