Some Halloween pictures:
Jessica working hard on her jack o lantern design
Helping clean out the pumpkins! This lasted all of 2 seconds.....

My girls are such posers.  Wonder where they get that from?
Notice how to Jessica's had eyelashes......

Izzy's final product. It's a sad one, it even has a tear :(
Before trick-or-treating, the girls were so distracted watching the other kids in costumes. It was near impossible to get a good picture.  Actually it WAS impossible.  But these will do :)  Notice them wearing their first home-made costumes ever (and their mommy's first time making a skirt EVER.  And you can tell....)

As per our tradition, we went trick-or-treating with Jessica's BFF Naima and in their neighborhood.  Much more happening then our dead end street (that also has a HUGE hill we're thinking deters a lot of the crowds)

I was a fairy with them! Jess was a pink fairy, Izzy a blue fairy and I was the purple fairy (in case you couldn't tell)

Daddy was a punk rocker.  But are mustaches really all that punk?

Always with the thumb in her mouth and finger up her nose..... le sigh, at least she's only 2!

Papa arrived for a visit just after we finished making our rounds.  The girls were so excited to show him the loot!

Hope everyone had a great Halloween!

Bates Nut Farm

Aka- The Pumpkin Patch

We did a little petting zoo- thought Daddy did most of the feeding of the pets.....
Then we rode ponies. Correction - JESSICA rode ponies. Izzy was soooo excited to ride, until it was time. Then she refused.

Went on a hayride pulled by 2 big horses and took this family shot:

Posed for pictures in the Pumpkin Patch- then picked out 2 perfect pumpkins (by Jessica, Izzy just chilled in the wheelbarrow)

And headed home. A fun, fun day!

Izzy doing.... gymnastics?

Apparently she's been out of gymnastics too long
She has forgotten that gymnastics was on soft mats, not hard blocks.
She set up these blocks and was bear walking over them telling me she was doing gymnastics.
In her underwear, of course.....
