Happy Halloween

The girls had a great first Halloween. They dressed up in their Pink Skeleton costumes and helped pass out candy. I was so proud how brave they were and didn't let any of the creepy costumes  or decorations scare them. We usually have one of the scary houses on the street and Clint is known to make people run from our house screaming. So it was a blast watching groups of people decide who was the brave one to ring our door bell and for me to answer the door with a baby put a relief look on all the trick or treaters faces. Next year we will be back to our haunted house ways with the addition of Cadey and Chloe to help out. Maybe dress them up as little ghost to bobble around through our grave yard.

Auction Day

Today we went down to Escondido to visit Grandma Teri at work and do a little auctioning. It was a really cool ranch that was being sold and was full of antiques. Everything I wanted was going for top dollar so I was very excited when Clint scored my wing back chairs for only $4 each. I can not wait to attempt to reupholster them myself.
Since the location was so amazing we also decided to take advantage of some cool spots for some family photos.

What a week!

This week seemed extra long. With Clinton working 10 hours days and going to school three nights a week it seems like I never see him. So i am very excited for our super busy weekend and to have lots of time together as a family.

Cadey has made my week even longer with her new found talent of screaming. She did it in the past but seemed to forget about it and now it has returned in full force. She screams throughout the entire day. She screams while shes playing, eating, and even in the middle of the night when we are done with her bottle. It doesn't stop! She even was mimicking herself when i was up loading her video for this post (ok well that part was cute and made me laugh)

On a positive note I love my new jogger and the girls love it to. We are so blessed that some one just gave it to us. I cant wait to finally get to the point where i can jog or even maybe run. But our daily walks are just as fun. It's a perfect way to end our day with the babies ready to go on an adventure and I finally get some silence plus some exercise.
Here are some cute pictures of the week. Enjoy!

Getting Crafty

We started our weekend off with a family craft. It was so fun to get crafty with the babies and even have hubby lend a hand. The girls made adorable feet ghost for an ever lasting memory of how small their little feet were on there first Halloween.

We might be on to something! The girls have finally slept through a whole night! Cadey and Chloe had a bottle at 7:30 pm and didn't wake up until 7:30 am. Now that doesn't mean that I got any sleep of course I was sleeping on edge waiting for the cries and had to keep getting up to make sure everything was ok.  We recently went from 8 bottles a night down to 4 and I thought that was amazing until I got a sneak peak of what sleeping all night is like.

We have been trying to stay busy over the weekends and enjoy our family time. It seems to be a lot more fun to be out keeping the girls busy then sitting at home. Since I am stuck at home all week we tend to run out of fun areas for the girls to go since they cant sit or crawl yet. Saturday we headed out to the Orange County Swap meet. Our neighbor gave us a double jogging stroller so we were very excited to try it out. Unfortunately it was a bust since everything was way overly priced. Sunday was nice, we went to the girls great grandparents house for a delicious lunch and great company. It was a perfect weekend and hoping for a good week ahead.

Pumpkin Time

This weekend was gorgeous. The temperature was absolutely perfect after having rain all week. We started our weekend with our errands. It practically takes all day just to run into a couple of stores for our necessities. After being exhausted from running around  with the girls i decided its time for mommy to go get a pedicure and relax. Daddy decided to join, the girls were being fussy and no way was he going to stay home by himself with two crying babies. It was a blast it was his first time and we each held a baby in our lap while being pampered.

Sunday was a perfect. It was off to Bates Pumpkin Farm with my brother and sister in law. I was so excited for the girls to get their first pumpkins. The girls were such troopers since it was pretty warm out and had to be carried around in the sun all day.  I love the picture we got of the girls and the giant pumpkin. Of course I wanted to bring home the biggest one but i settled for some baby pumpkin's since we quickly ran out of space in the car with baby equipment.

Fall is finally here

I couldn't be happier that fall is finally here. We are all decorated and ready to celebrate. This time last year I was pregnant and wasn't really able to enjoy the holidays due to my bed rest and really just having a hard time getting around. So this year I decided to stay ahead and enjoy every minute of it with my family.

This weekend was a little busy. On Friday I finished up my Christmas shopping for the girls. Yes you read that right I am all done Christmas shopping and then we were off to the doctors for the girls 6 months shots. It's so hard to watch your babies being tortured. They each got 4 shots plus had to drink an oral one. Thanks to flu season we will be back in one month to get the second half of the influenza vaccine.

Saturday was fun. We met up with my brother Loui and his wife Valerie for some antique shopping and lunch in fallbrook. It was pretty hot so the day didn't last long but we got some great pictures and enjoyed getting out of the house for a little bit. The rest of the day the girls slept and recovered from their shots.

Today Tuesday was soooo nice, we finally got some rain. It was nice to bundle up the girls and be cozy all day. We even snuck out for a short walk in between showers. The girls were so excited to be wearing their fabulous beanies.
