Down Town Trick-Or-Treating

Clayton had a trick-or-treat festival for the little ones today. Bryson, the girls and me joined some friends for a fun adventure with many kids!  Bryson was so excited seeing all the other kids get excited and the moment he saw his costume. One thing he can say very well-Trick-Or-Treat!

 Just a few more when I got home...

It was a long day. I hope they all sleep well tonight!

Girls' Date

Had a fabulous time with some of my girlfriends Tuesday night at the Pit in downtown Raleigh. Great catching up and such a blessing to have these nights out once in a while. It want be long before we are due for another one. Maybe we can do a play date/dinner at my house next time so we can catch up even more! What do you girls think?!

Becky and Avery. Congratulations Becky on your upcoming new addition to your family! May God bless your family and your pregnancy and that sweet baby boy's arrival!

Alisa and Gracie Jo.

Avery Anne and Mommy.

All of us: Me with Avery, Alisa with Gracie, Becky, Lisa with Hadley (Alisa's sweet girl)

Had a good time with my beautiful friends! Now I am ready for a date night with my husband. Any willing babysitters?!

Weekend just Hangin' Around...

We did absolutely nothing this weekend. The girls are still pretty sick with little red runny noses and I have been totally exhausted. Luckily, I got a nap in today. The sleep deprivation seems to sneak up on me at times. Unfortunately, we missed church today. We don't like taking our sick kids going to church and spreading germs, so we can watch the sermon on the computer. Needless to say, it has been a long tiring weekend. The girls have been pretty fussy due to their colds and runny noses. Their little red noses are so cute, only mommy can love those little red noses, daddy too of course!

Gracie normally finishes her bottle before she conks out!

Avery has had it bad. It started with a high temp of 102 and then turned into a cold.

Bryson deciding what he wants from Santa (Thomas stuff of course!)

....decisions, decisions

Gracie is getting pretty good at holding her bottle, even with one hand!

Daddy's work trailer can be used for fun!

Happy Eight Months Sweet Girls

Our girls turned eight months old today. We enjoy watching them grow and learning about their different personalities. They have changed so much in just one month. So amazing. Avery is a mommy's girl and mommy loves it! Avery loves to cuddle. Gracie is such a hoot! She is so full of herself! Gracie is pretty loud when she gets to talking and makes herself pretty well known in stores and out in public. Our little character wants to be heard (and I think she likes hearing herself as well)!  Both twins are saying mama; Avery says it more. I think she knows who mama is! They are both taking baths together now and loving it. Both girls are interacting with each other. They have so many toys, but always want what the other one has. We love listening to them giggle and laugh at each other in the mornings. They also can see each other in their cribs above the bumper. Sometimes, when I put them down for nap time, they giggle and laugh. I just let them have fun until they fall asleep! Happy eight months old precious girls!

The girls are not crawling yet, but both are trying! Both are getting up on all fours and rocking back and forth as well as moving backwards. The bet is on...who do you think will be the first crawler?!
