Happy Halloween!!!

So Halloween has been celebrated for almost an entire month it seems like.... and now the special day has come (and gone for Tyler & Harper who finally just went to bed at 8:45!). The girls had a big day. Lots of fun activities, lots of sugar & lots of smiles!

Dad & the girls at the Runway 5k
Bright & Early this morning!
Dad placed 3rd in his age group pushing the stroller. It was at the airport on the runway so Tyler & Harper got to see their first airplanes up close & personal!

Dressed up ready to go trick or treating!
This was post-neighborhood party so the girls already had plenty of sugar in them.
They were even bribed to wear their hats with skittles.

With a mouthful of skittles!

Already stuffed full of sugar!

Off to trick or treat with Daddy in the rain.
They caught on quickly and said "Next house, more candy"

Checking out their loot...

Yum... pop pop!

Harper cruising on her ladybug!

Happy Halloween!

Mom wore this same shirt 2 Halloweens ago when T & H were just 5 short weeks away from arrival. My how things have changed!!!

Halloween Fun!

Tyler & Harper have been all about Halloween this year... we have been having a blast on our nightly ghost trips where we drive around looking for pumpkins, spiders, witches & ghosts in the neighborhood. The girls stare in amazement then yell "more ghosts!". Since the creepy things did not seem to scare them, the girls went to their first haunted house this week. Tyler loved it & laughed her way through while Harper said bye-bye and was pretty freaked out. Pictures from our fright night are below...

The Bunny Hop Hop!

Big Poppy stopped by the other day with a little Halloween surprise... bunny outfits. They were a hit and the girls spent the afternoon doing the bunny hop hop! Halloween is going to be a big hit this year!!!

More pumpkins!!!

To say the girls are obsessed with pumpkins these days is a bit of an understatement! Every pumpkin patch we pass they scream "punkin" and squeal. And every car ride turns into a pumpkin, ghost & witch hunt. So, we stopped at a pumpkin patch one afternoon this week & the girls ran and touched all of the pumpkins and even kissed a few!



Sharing the little pumpkins.

Harper tried to pick this big one up for quite a while!



Tyler told Mommy she wanted this one!

Then to make our pumpkin filled day even better...
Aunt Meri stopped by with pumpkin cookies that were gobbled right up.
(And covered in black and orange icing!)
Harper giving Meri kisses as a thank you for the sugar!

School Day Smiles!

This morning the girls got dressed for school in their new fall dresses & I told them how pretty they looked. They smiled & twirled then said "smile, cheese"... so they wanted their picture taken! Here are some early morning smiles for school. Tyler & Harper love pre-school and as you can see in the pictures & were very happy that today was a school day!

Pumpkin Pickin'

We went to pick our pumpkin this weekend. This trip was a little different from last year! Tyler & Harper were not even crawling last year at this time, this year they are running! Riverbend Farm is such a fun Fall activity... I think the girls are going to love it more & more each year.

A little taller than last year... they have grown about half a foot!
