First Swim Meet

Violet went to her first swim meet.  She competed in the 3-4 year old category in the freestyle, butterfly, and backstroke.  Being that it was her first competition, we weren't expecting much but she got second in all three races!

Waiting to start:

She got second in all three races!

Proud girl:

Since it was the last meet of the calendar year, they had a "money dive" where the kids frantically dive for coins.  Mostly pennies but it's very exciting.

Earlier that morning we picked out a Christmas tree:

We will pick it up sometime after thanksgiving.

Happy Halloween!!!

Violet had a great time this year.  This was the first year I think she truly got the concept of trick or treating and Halloween.  And she got so much candy.  Lucky kid. 

She was Elsa for the second year in a row.  She had me buy a Belle costume but in classic Violet fashion changed her mind.

She drew her first pumpkin which Eric carved exactly as drawn:

Trick or treat:

Earlier this week we attended a couple of Halloween parties.

Hawaii Part 2

More Hawaii pictures.  Violet loved the kids programs at the Disney Hotel.  The first day they made fish food and fed the fish.  Mommy went to the spa.

The next day they made "space goo with Stitch.

Violet also went to the Aloha Dance Party.

More breakfast with Mickey:

Completely unrelated, petting a turtle at school.
