We decided not to take the girls trick or treating last night .. I didn't want all of that tempting candy in the house!! Instead, we took the girls over to our next door neighbors yard, where they had set up a table with wine, crackers and veggies.. and we all just let the kids come and get candy from there. It was a lot of fun and the girls loved seeing all of the big kids in their costumes. Not a bad way to spend a night!
Mommy got all depressed at night when we put the girls in their cribs wide awake and they didn't make a peep for the rest of the night. Funny how I have prayed for the day this would happen .. and then when it does I go into "my babies don't need me anymore" mode. They looked like such big girls with their heads on their pillows, blanket tucked under their arms and clutching their stuffed animals. Too much. Why does it go by so fast?

Reese's first taste of Haloween candy!

What happens when you leave twins alone in a room together ... one cracks an escape plan .. pushes a box to the gate .. the other cimbs on up and gets ready to break free over the baby gate! (ugh)

First Halloween Party

The girls went to their first Halloween party tonight. I had originally planned on making their costumes myself, but I decided to save my ideas for next year when the girls are a little older. So at the last minute we managed to find these .. which fit their personalities to a T at the moment. We think they look pretty cute.

They are going to another party tomorrow night too (such popular kiddos). That one will be with all of their playgroup friends so they will certainly have a lot of fun! We’ll post pics from that tomorrow!
[edit .. we forgot our camera for that party .. so no pics .. good job mom and dad]
