Happy Halloween!

First let me say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Jeff! I hope you enjoyed the day.

Even though this wasn't the monkeys' first Halloween it felt like it was. We took them to their first Halloween Party last weekend. When we first put them in their costumes, Isabella screamed for quite awhile. She did not like it all. She took a nap on the way to the party and was much happier with the costume when she woke up. The monkeys had fun at the party, but they were rather anti-social and only wanted to be right by us. There were a LOT of people there so that certainly played a role. I think I need to try really hard to fit more play dates into our schedule again too.

Today we went and did some early Christmas shopping for the girls and played outside in the snow for awhile. I will post some pics later this week. Then after dinner we put them in their costumes and waited for the trick or treaters. They are so cute in their costumes! The monkeys weren't sure what to think about the trick or treaters. Sometimes they got excited and sometimes they just sat there with a confused expression. Overall I think they enjoyed it. It was so warm out tonight that I wished we had taken them trick or treating. I am looking forward to doing it next year when they can walk on their own and really enjoy it.

Happy Halloween everyone!

P.S. The monkeys didn't get to sample any of the candy in their buckets. I'm such a mean mommy! They were far more upset about not getting to stay outside than they were about not getting any candy.

Polka Dot Tots

Check out my polka dot tots having fun with their daddy and their nana banana. Why is it that the momma always gets stuck behind the camera? I really do exist! Just not in pictures.

Play time!

In honor of Stacey I am posting lots of pictures of the girls playing. As promised in my last post, I spent a weekend taking lots of pictures of the girls. I am admittedly very late in getting them posted. Things haven't slowed down quite as much as I anticipated, but there is still hope for more blog time coming soon.

Yummy Cheerios!

Your eye is a little wobbly. Let me take care of that for you.

Ooops! Now your smile is wonky.

Whee! Daddy is so much fun!

Mommy, do you move that cursor thingy with your tongue?

I'm cute and I know it.

Must find trouble.

Let's help mommy with her work.

I will not be interrupted.

I want to watch something else. These house shows are boring me.

Our favorite toys. What is that you say? They aren't our toys? We say they are!

Where's that thing you called Elmo?

Still searching for something better.

What happened to my Cheerios?

Rejoining the world

After an exhausting week, I think I can finally say that things are slowing down enough for me to rejoin the world. The big contract fell through. I was pretty bummed about it, but I'm still working on trying to find a solution to make everyone happy. The good news is that I have my first official contract with a closing at the end of the month. Things are going well and I think I might actually close my first transaction. Yay! I've been working so much lately that Jeff and Mom have really had to take over a significant amount of monkey time.

I like working, but I am really missing my time with the monkeys. They are growing up so quickly. Unfortunately, I don't have many new pictures of them. My goal for the weekend is to keep the camera busy. Here are a few pics of the girls and my mom playing with their music table. They obviously like it a lot!
