Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from the Gulliver Girls!

Kylie as Dorothy-homemade costume made by Ma Goo Goo!

Our little Pumpkin-her first Halloween!
These are just a few pictures before the massive amounts of pictures are taken tonight before trick or treating! Kylie had her school Halloween party yesterday and got to dress up in her costume. The costume is gorgeous! My mother-in-law, Julie, made the costume and it is just perfect! Thanks Ma Goo Goo! My mom did a great job with the braids too! Hope everyone has a safe Halloween and more pictures to come next week!
Happy Halloween!

Anyone with advice?

So these past few weeks have been exhausting for me, both mentally and physically. My workload has increased significantly and I've been fighting a cold for almost two weeks. Needless to say, I am feeling a bit overwhelmed. I have been wondering lately, how do I balance things out as I work full-time and am a mommy/wife full-time? How do I not let the stress of my work affect me or my family when I come home at night? How do I get the things I need to do at home when I feel like I am always at work? Don't get me wrong, I love working and have a great job but sometimes I feel as though my girls are growing up and I am hardly there to see any of it. I just needed to let some things off of my mind as my week comes to an end and as I prepare to get a couple days off to spend quality time with my husband and my kids. I'm sure once I am not so overwhelmed at work that things will return to normal but in the meantime, I could use any advice that anyone may have.

Enjoy your weekend and give extra hugs and kisses to the ones you love!

Just like his Uncle Aaron...

Our nephew Drew is wearing one of his Uncle Aaron's old sweaters, from when Aaron was a baby. Aaron's mom gave Amanda (Drew's mommy) this sweater for Drew to wear. Drew thinks his Uncle Aaron is pretty cool and wants to dress just like him! :)

Little Pumpkins

Drew thought leaves were a delightful fall treat!

Happy girl Ava-always has a big old smile on her face!

Happy Fall everyone!

Hmm...does one of these pumpkins look different than the rest? :)

All of the kids and grandkids (yes, I had my hair chopped off!)

The Gulliver/Meerman Families
On Sunday, we had lunch at Dad & Julie's and then all headed over to Robinette's for a hayride and cider and donuts. Yummy! Julie had gotten all of the babies matching pumpkin outfits and of course we had to take a ton of pictures of all the cuties! It was a great fall day and a lot of fun!

On a another note, Ava is finally crawling!!!! When I came to pick up the girls at my mom's house on Friday after work, I was coaxing Ava to come see me. Sure enough, she crawled right over to me! My mom and I were so excited that we were practically screaming, which Ava wasn't too sure what all the commotion was about but now she is crawling all over the place. We really have to keep an eye on her now because she has a tendancy to want to play with the dog's toys! Her two front bottom teeth are just now peeking through the gum. For awhile there, she was in so much pain because of getting those two teeth at once. Poor thing. She is getting to be such a big girl!
