Halloween 2010

We were Angels last year, and bugs when they were 1, but I think my favorite is still the weiners from their newborn stage!
This Halloween we are debuting our little chicken & egg! The chicken came in an after-Halloween sale last year and for the egg, Grandma Jody dusted off her sewing machine. They are pretty cute! Here we were headed to the Northside Twins & Multiples Halloween Party a couple weeks ago. More pics to come after this weekend.

Happy Halloween!

Didn't Pumpkin Patches Used to Be About Pumpkins?

Maybe some places they still are, but around here, pumpkin patches seem to be about ANYTHING but the pumpkins! Pony rides, check. Hayride, check. Giant inflatables, check. Trains, check. Anyway, despite having some strong-willed opinionated little girls this weekend, we managed to make it tantrum free for a couple hours to enjoy the fall weather and pick our pumpkins!

On the hayride

Burning off energy on the 'giant cloud'

They loved this!
Lilly, smiling in order to get the camera out of her face :-)

Addy, typically too busy for pictures

Addy's getting to be a pro at the pony rides!

Lilly finally got on! After watching for a while, with Daddy by her side, she was willing!

Almost too big to carry
Perfect size!

They weren't overly enthusiastic for this contraption, but entertained us nonetheless!

All smiles--fun family day!

Pinch me--I'm dreaming!

Between A & L's snotty noses, a flu bug that kicked the s@# * out of me and Jeremy's constant allergies, the house needed a good cleaning--is it too early to start a chore chart??? (I PROMISE THEY ACTUALLY THOUGHT IT WAS FUN!)

In Their Own Words....

  • "Dad, is tommowow a school day or an errrrrrannnnd day?"--Lilly
  • "Mommy, are you and Daddy the best friends?"--Addy
  • "Do all kids got a Ga Ga Jody?"--Addy
  • "You gotta eat your brocli so you can be big and strong and drive the big-school bus to school."--Addy
  • "I have a new house in the woods with a new mommy, new daddy, a baby brother and flamingos and cookies."--Addy
  • (Talking about a friends' recent trip to Disney) "I know that Mickey and Minnie and Daisy and Pluto live at Disney world in their clubhouse, but what about Petey?" --Lilly
  • "Mommy, I don't feel good, I have a (insert physical/fake cough)"--Lilly

These girls are cracking. me. up.

I continue to feel as though there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done and I'm waiting for the "slow" that is supposed to come with fall, so forgive a very short update! Our pre-school drama has gotten much less dramatic, as long as I promise a cookie from the bakery next to the pre-school as a reward for good behavior. I've begun tackling projects that have been on the 'to-do' list I wrote back in March (and by tackling I mean paying someone to tackle). The girls are napping less, waking earlier and staying up later, so my productivity level has dramatically decreased. I can't believe I'm supposed to have Halloween costumes ready for our first party NEXT week! Laundry seems never-ending and as soon as one meal in my kitchen is cleaned up, it's time to start the next. The joys of motherhood, right??? Speaking of meals, I should begin thinking about dinner....

Here are a few pictures I haven't shared yet from Jeremy's company picnic in September-enjoy!
