Thanksgiving Treats!

We all hit the road to Honey & Pop's for a long Thanksgiving holiday... We have not remembered to take that many pictures, but here are a few!

Dad carving up the fried turkey!

Here they are blowing bubbles...

Favorite thing right now... Frosty the Snowman. The girls point him out everywhere we go! We listen to the song in the car on repeat & its is currently the most requested book at bedtime. Glad its getting cold... maybe the girls will get to see a real Frosty the Snowman outside this winter!

Practicing for Baby Brother!

We have started bringing out some of the girls baby gear for the new baby brother on the way. Tyler & Harper have loved playing with everything and the biggest hit has been the swing. At age 2 the girls are still under the suggested weight max since they both are around 21 lbs! So, we let them have a little fun. Baby Brother is in for a wild ride once he arrives!

Baby #3!!!

We had an appointment today for baby #3... just a 30 week check up & a routine ultrasound.

Baby #3 is looking great, weighing 2 lbs 10 oz. (right on track!)
But this ultrasound proved to give us a little bigger surprise than we were expecting...

Since the baby is breeched with its head right under my belly button, the position was a little telling. After seeing what we thought we saw our curiosity got the best of us and....


A very happy mom & unbelievably proud Dad are super excited
to bring a little BLUE into this very pink household.

Belly Shot
Almost 30 weeks
(Before we knew it was a Boy!)

And a nursery peek.... our very neutral nursery may need a little BLUE now!!!

Lovin' Leaves!

The leaves are falling everywhere... the girls could not resist today & jumped right in to play.

Tyler jumping in the big pile of leaves


So Fun!

All smiles on Harper

What a perfect fall afternoon.


But before it was all-play...
mom woke up the girls a little early, bundled them up and gave them breakfast on the go so we could walk to the corner...

... to cheer Daddy on for mile 10 of his half marathon!

Way to go Daddy!
13.1 miles in 1:29!

23 Months Old!

The girls are 23 months old today... and are just so stinkin' cute! They adore each other and are constantly hugging, holding hands & kissing! They love having a twin sissy around all of the time.
Harper (L) & Tyler (R)
At 23 Months the girls are so fun & sweet!
Pre-school has done wonders... they listen better, talk all of the time & say the blessing before meals. Too cute!

Tyler has become our "little mom" always telling Harper "careful" & "sit down". She is always looking out for her. And our Harper is the daredevil who always asks for "more high" when she is in the swing and runs at mock speed. Although she will try anything, Harper is our scaredy-cat and looks to mom or dad when she gets spooked (think vacuum cleaner and any other loud noise!). They are 2 peas in a pod and are the best of friends!

New at 23 Months:
Asking for what they want to eat. Normally rice, pancakes or grilled cheese!
Making lots of new friends. Mary Brooks & Elle top the list right now of who they talk about.
Jumping up & down with both feet leaving the ground!
Singing the ABC's.
Requesting what books they want to read at night. Normally the choo-choo book which Dad had added lots of fun special sound effects to!

Harper & Tyler checking out baby #3's new digs...
New Toy Bin = Great new place to play!

Nature Hike

There is a great nature trail that the girls LOVE! They collect rocks and leaves, touch trees and look for birds. The whole thing is fenced in which is a huge plus for a pregnant mom chasing 2 very fast toddlers!!!

And they are off... full speed ahead!

Yea, we love playing outside.

Tyler, super excited that a butterfly touched her hand.
