Happy Halloween!

It has been a crazy couple of weeks since my last post. We adopted a new puppy, adopted some fish and aquarium, the girls are no longer using pacifiers (thanks Melissa Vanderbilt), my "little" stay at home mommy business has PICKED UP, and the girls are growing and changing like crazy. The girls can talk so plainly now, it is like having a real conversation with an adult. It is scary that my babies are growing up.

Here are some pictures of our new puppy, Sophie. She is such a sweetie, but she is having problems with the whole potty training thing! Sarah walks around watching her and is VERY quick to yell to me and tell me "Sophie poopy in the floor again, yucky, Sophie, you poopy in the potty, not on the floor". Funny Sarah.

This week has been a big week with Halloween festivities. We went to the pumpkin patch to pick out some pumpkins. We fed the goats, saw the chickens and even managed to pick out a few pumpkins. It was fun! Molly loved feeding the goats....but as you can see by Sarah having her hands behind her back....she didn't care for it.

Earlier in the week we carved pumpkins and made our jack-o-lanters. They loved seeing them lit and watching daddy carve them, but they didn't care anything about the "yucky" stuff inside.

We went to the fall festival at church last night and they had a blast. I know this blog is about the girls, but I had to post a picture of our good friend John Mark and his little costume that his VERY talented mommy made for him (she is my hero). The girls had a wonderful time in their cowgirl outfits. Thankfully they were girly enough and fun enough not to see like a costume so they didn't realize they were dresses up. We really enjoyed watching them in their HOT pink cowgirl boots.

We left the house and went straight to the fall festival where we went trick or treating and had a ball playing at the play ground and eating hot dogs and of course CANDY! Then we went to Grandma and Grandpa's new house to trick or treat them. Below is a picture of Sarah dumping her booty out on Grandma's floor for further inspection and our very first real trick or treat.

Then we went to Mr. Mike and Ms. Cindy's house (our annual trick or treat on the way home) to see Lucy (the weiner dog) and to get wonderful treats from Ms. Cindy. We went home and we were tuckered out and ready for bed!

It has been a crazy couple of weeks at our house, but it has been fun! Thanks for checking in with us!
