Happy Thanksgiving!

After many turns of events our Thanksgiving took this year, we ended up staying home with my parents and Uncle Andrew today! It was kinda nice actually getting to stay home. We usually go out of town but Chris had to work (people still want coffee) so it was just business as usual for the first part of the day. Lunch was great and a nice nap followed for all four of us! Amazing! We ended the day visiting friends with their new baby. We are so blessed to be surrounded by people who love us!
I am so thankful that I have two healthy baby girls!

The girls new favorite toy!

I was folding clothes today and Kinley started trying to turn the basket over. I decided to put them in it and they actually really liked it. They played for almost 10 minutes...hey that is forever around here!!!!
Their faces are always covered in drool. I promise I had just dried them off!

The girls are starting to really notice each other and like to be together! They are even starting to scream at night unless they are in the same bed!

snotty noses, teething and one tired momma!

I was not going to post this pictures that we took for my tutu company but thought they were too cute, Just some Christmas Stuff! I think my girls might hate me for putting them in so many tutus!

Kinley has cut two teeth, over the last weeks. You can only see the tops but they are there! Both girls have runny noses and are not always in the best moods lately!! We even had a week or so of babies waking up several times at night. Crazy, since they have slept through the night at 2 months and never looked back...until now!

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving week!!! Chris has to work so we are having Thanksgiving lunch with friends instead of going out of town.

We have a crawler??? Well Kinley has decided to try the crawling world out... Except not for her mama! I have been told by several creditable sources that they have seen her "really" crawl! Here is a video of what she does for me!

Happy Halloween...Part two! Picture edition!

I was so excited about Halloween this year! I think because when I was a kid I always remember getting out the box with all the halloween decorations and all the fun we had! I have never really decorated for Chris and I but I thought I would this year. Not that the girls will remember it but oh well! We didn't carve pumpkins this year but the girls did get two little pumpkins from the pumpkin patch we took pictures at. I decided to put their initials on them instead. It turned out pretty cute except that Kinley's pumpkin turned bad pretty quickly.

The girls had gotten a few halloween outfits so we started celebrating a little early!

Kinley in her oh so cool halloween leggings! I got them in the dollar spot at Target!

Ok so this next picture cracks me up! First of all Kinley looks like she is telling Madelyn off and Madelyn looks like she doesn't care at all. Second, I got to go last week with Suz for a much needed night off. I had asked chris to take a picture of the girls in their halloween outfit and this is what I got. You can't even see what is on the shirt! Oh, Daddies!

My aunt gave the girls these halloween socks while I was pregnant! First present after we found out we were having twins! I had to get a picture of them.

Like I had said in my last post, the twins had been sick for pretty much everything else we had planned for the Halloween season. So we were so glad that they were feeling better for Halloween night! Our church always has a trunk or treating and we wanted to go.

The girls sat up like big girls in their stroller for one of the first times!

My little blued eyed girls!

Since Chris is the youth minister at our church, we are usually surrounded by some of the teenagers. Mostly the girls...the boys don't really care about the baby stuff!

I have to say we have some of the best ones around! Great babysitters!!!

Lauren, I am not sure what exactly this is...but she made it herself!
Jesika with Kinley!

I love watching the teenage girls play with the twins. You can see the love on both ends!

I guess it is because we have twins or that when we tell people the girls names (Madelyn) people ALWAYS ask us if we watch Jon and Kate. We don't watch the show. I did but what I know about them now I learn from US Weekly! (thanks, Suz) We decided it would be funny to spoof on that...I know EVERYONE was that this year and it was not original but oh well.

Jon and Kate!
I looked for the "kate" wig but everywhere was sold out!
"Jon" Sporting a little Ed Hardy and check out the bling!
It is a fake earring. He was unwilling to actually pierce his ear or shave his goatee!
More than one person asked if I was the Octomom!

"The Gosselin Family"
Check out Madelyn (in the back) they didn't know what to think of me in my costume!

The other part of our costume.
We borrowed some baby dolls and tied them to our stroller.
We used the girl's preemie clothes and borrowed boy clothes from our friend Carter!

The girls got tired of the stroller and opted to play in the trunk instead of treating!
They loved it!
Madelyn even took a little nap at one point!

We saw lots of very cute costumes. Check out the cutest charlie brown!
Sweet nathan!
We had lots of fun at trunk or treating and can't wait till next year!

Poppy had a little too much fun with the girls costumes! The girls thought it was so funny!

Happy Halloween...Part one!

After some inspiration from my fellow twin mama Kristi Hutton I decided to play with photoshop! I didn't do much..I'm still learning and Chris was getting tired of me asking him questions! I am going to make him sit down with me and teach me! Anyways after many great suggestions from you guys I decided the girls were going to be ladybugs! I thought they were pretty cute!

We had been invited to several things during this Halloween season but sadly were sick and had to miss a few things! We still figured out how to celebrate and we all had a good time! Chris and I even dressed up...I don't think we have ever done that since we started dating! It was alot of fun! I guess you have to wait for part two!
