Checking in...

So...whats new since the last post?

It was Halloween...that was fun, and very cute, too.   The girls went trick-or-treating for the first time, mostly riding around in the wagon and chasing around their cousin, Captain America. 

We have been talking a lot about Autumn, trees and leaves these days.  Our favorite books have been One Red Apple, by Harriet Ziefert, Autumn, by Gerda Muller, and A Tree is Nice, by Janice May Udry.  We have also enjoyed stomping and kicking the leaves in our yard.

When daylight saving time ended, there was lots of waking up at 6 a.m. and a couple of evenings falling asleep while mama was making dinner!

This week, we have had a lovely playdate with a sweet friend from our local babywearing group, we visited the botanical gardens with nana, stomped in puddles in the rain, built forts, danced, and baked bread and cookies (yay!)  We also went to the market, did laundry and dishes all that stuff, too.

The girls have also been enjoying the newest addition to our dress up box!  This adorable crown is based on one I found on the Hippos and Dinosaurs blog.  It's a super fast and easy project, and so cute!  It took less than an hour to complete, and would be a great holiday gift for any little person.

That's it for now, see you soon!
