Abby running to a house. She was so good and fun to watch. It was awesome to see how excited she got going up to houses. She was also very polite which made us proud!

Zach the tiger, Abby the lion and Ally the monkey trick or treating

This is a shot from just down the street. The family spends days getting ready for Halloween carving pumpkins and decorating the inside of their garage so the kids can walk through and get candy. Very impressive.

Zach's 1st Birthday

The little man is 1 today!

1 Day Old

3 Months Old

6 Months Old

9 Months Old

ONE YEAR OLD!!! (All ready for bed on his birthday)

Zachy also got to turn around in the car today, he has been at the weight for a long time, we were just waiting until he was officially One! (I wanted to do it last night and take him for a ride, but Brian was calling me Britany Spears, so I didn't do it). This was his first car ride facing forwards, on the way to the dayhome this morning, he just kept saying "Daddy" the whole time, 'cause he could see Bri, it was so cute!

There will probably be another post tomorrow, after Zachy's birthday party!

Gallimore October Birthdays

The Gallimore family got together on Sunday afternoon to celebrate some October birthdays. Courtney (Oct. 9), Steve (Oct. 19), Abby (Oct. 20) and Zach (Oct. 30) were all celebrating.
