Trimming the tree

This is the first year since we've been married that we bought ornaments to put on the tree. We went with red and silver. The girls were excited to put them on.  I put on the tinsel and then we let Camille and Nattie put the ornaments on all by themselves. (Besides the lifting them up so they could reach the high parts.) In the end I only moved 5 or 6 around. Next year maybe we'll spring for a star that lights up and a real tree skirt. (I just always use a red blanket that we have.)

Loved that the glitter was getting all over their hands!

Our little elves.

Nattie also tested out some stockings.

We're getting excited for Christmas! :)

I think it's time for...

...another comparison. I took Emily to her nine month check up today. She went in "well" and came out "sick". (Apparently, she has an ear infection and low iron.) Here's how she did:

Height: 28 1/4 inches
Weight: 16.6 lbs.

Height: 28 inches
Weight: 17.9 lbs

Height: 27 3/4 inches
Weight: 18.6 lbs

Looks like with every girl they get longer and leaner. :) I sure love them and love that they like playing together.

One size fits all

It's so nice that my girls are able to share clothes. Although sometimes it surprizes me who can share.

Granted on Camille they become a shirt and shorts but it works for me.

All Hallows Eve

First we partied at Camille's preschool:

 She's the crocodile on the back row.

Later we had dinner:

Almost all of the food ideas were stolen from my awesome sister-in-law.

Then we headed out Trick or treating:

This year our theme was the song Five little monkeys sitting in a tree teasing Mr. Crocodile...

We had some monkeys:  (Daddy monkey not pictured)

 A tree:
A crocodile:

 Some teasing:

And some snatching:

And we came home with buckets full of candy.

Our Halloween celebrating started on Friday the 28th with pumpkin carving.
 Natalie wanted a ghost
 Camille was excited about a bat.

Saturday we went to six flags then a barn raising party followed by a chili cookoff / trunk or treat at our church.
This is the girls' favorite ride. Sheldon Speedway

Camille decided she'd rather sit with a girl she didn't know then with Natalie. (Really, she just wanted to be in the "pink" car and this little girl was already sitting there so Camille just climbed in with her.)
As we entered the trick or treat trail, Spruce the Moose decided he wanted to trick or treat with our girls.

 I didn't take any other pictures the rest of the day. (Lame, I know.)

Halloween Day post coming soon...
