We owned it!

Steve's squadron put on a Trunk or Treat for the kids complete with costume contest. And who owned the Under 5's? We did. The girls won a pumpkin full of candy and a 3 day pass for their dad. If you can't tell, Amelia is Little Red Riding Hood and Claire is Dorothy. So sweet!
Mostly this is what we saw of Little Red- her back. That girl was running EVERYWHERE! And she can run, not just walk. She is so fast!
And Claire just hammed it up for everyone! She is such a sweet funny baby. She can whistle now!

So Steph, what have those girlies been up to?

Well, I'm glad you asked! We've been...
Checking out our bracelets from Aunt Heather
Refusing to smile for the camera
Climbing like a monkey
Cramming two girls into one car
Refusing to smile while taking a covered wagon ride
Wandering around at the Pumpkin Patch
Riding a pumpkin like a pony
Playing in Mommy's cabinets
Emptying an entire brand-new box of q-tips
Riding bareback on our pony
Seriously, Claire has turned into such a little monkey! I was putting Amelia down for her nap and when I came out to get Claire, this is what she was doing! She scared me to death. I mean, until I said "ok don't move so I can get the camera!"

I am enjoying this age so much! The girls are funny and they are learning so much ever day. Claire likes to growl at her dad and Amelia loooooves to say and sign "baby." Both girls are picking up a good bit of sign language and they can both say several words. Steve and I both love the way Amelia says "baaaaabee" and Claire likes to point at things and say "Wow" but it comes out "Wowow" which is adorable. I feel so lucky to be their mom!
