Last week was a bit of blur for me. I was in craft mode: I made two Halloween costumes, this super cool paper flower decoration and a custom rubber stamp. I also had a plethora of shoots over the weekend and a few long nights at the day job. Still, I showed up ready to party on Sunday.
It's hard to believe this little lady is already three years old. Grace was born the day before Halloween in Sleepy Hollow, New York. You can't get much more cool than that! Every year, she gets a fun costume party. This year she dressed up as a fairy princess.
James put on his costume, Slam Bam from the Skylanders game. Halloween is his favorite holiday.
I asked the girls to get together for a picture and then asked if Aria would take her passifer out.
Grace decided she would be take matters into her own hands.

I liked the light so much in this spot, I grabbed Grace's #3 and had her pose with it. It's hard to get Grace to smile nice in photos these days, but I eventually got one out of her.

Nick looks pretty shot in this picture, but Hannah was giving me a two handed wave.
I took a very similar picture of James and Grace when she was Hannah's age that you can see below.
I tried to prank James by putting a spider ring on the cheese pizza. He wasn't even phased.
Over the past couple of months, I've noticed how excited Grace has been for other people's birthday parties. I was so happy to finally sing for her.
Not even a year old and Hannah's already hogging the laptop!
I had a theme for Grace's presents. At the last party I asked her what she wanted for her birthday and she very seriously replied, "A Birthday Pig!" I made her a custom pig stamp for her wrapping paper and even found a pig card. I guess I went a little Hog Wild!

And here's the Birthday Pig reveal. Grace was absolutely thrilled with it, and who wouldn't be? That little pig has so much personality!
Aria had her own set of presents to open and this was the hat included in her package.
I found the flower number decoration at Oh Happy Day. I recommend you get large glue dots and the thickest foam core you can find. The end result is pretty darn heavy! The adorable piglet comes from a handmade seller on Etsy called Finkelsteins. There are a bunch of cute little critters and I want to buy them all!
