Halloween Fun/Update!

I hope everyone had a fun Halloween! It was the girls' first time trick-or-treating this year- we just went to 10 or so houses in our neighborhood. It is really funny to think of the whole idea of trick-or-treating through the eyes of a young toddler. They had to be thinking "Really, what are we doing, Mom??" We brought them along in a Choo-choo and then let them walk to the door at each house. They were all distracted during their short walk to the door, looking at garden statues, rocks, and pumpkins. Once they got up to the door they would all yell "hello!" At one house, Josie tried to walk in the house. It was all pretty amusing!  By the last couple houses they were getting tired. Mission completed!

The Sunday before Halloween we had fun carving pumpkins. The girls sat in their high chairs watching and playing with the slimy seeds. At first they didn't touch the goop but then they had fun playing with it.

Josie being typical Josie- she's putting the seeds in the cup holders. Organizer!
Here are some costume pics!

If you have a couple minutes, here's a video demonstrating pre-bedtime madness. They are get this hyper most nights!

Have a good rest of the week, everyone! One last pic.
