Aren't these the coolest!

Uncle Todd and Aunt Kandy added these fabulous slippers to his tractor collection. He thinks they are awesome. I do too. I have a feeling we are going to have a a very Green Christmas
Finally a picture of mommy and her babies.
I'm always the one with the camera so I was feeling jibbed.

Happy Thanksgiving

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
We enjoyed a turkey lunch at Grandma Star's and then a ham sandwich dinner at Grandma Reilly's. It was been a wonderful year. Grant and I are so thankful that God has blessed us with two amazing kids and two great families. We've been adjusting to reality that we are now a family with 2 kids. It just kind of boggles out minds that we have children when we almost still feel like children ourselves. I guess we aren't the 6 year olds fighting over who's yard it is, the 10 year olds figuring out the lyrics to Guns N Roses, the 13 year olds fighting over friends, the 16 year olds staying out too late, the 19 year olds getting married, the 21 year old Marine, or the 24 year olds buying their first home. It's been 20 years since we first met and I am thankful for all the days the Lord has blessed us with. He has been with us through it all and I could never thank Him enough. I also want to tell all of our family and friends how thankful we are for you. We appreciate all of your love, help, time, and friendship. Happy Thanksgiving.

Daddy and Jojo had a good time in their bubble bath. I'm not sure who had more fun.
Marge Simpson
It was impossible to get both of them to look at the camera together. "BUBBIES!!!!" aka bubbles

When I took Lillian in to see Grant after I got her dressed he said, "take that thing off her head." Then I said "now she looks like a girl." ...Grant..."You look pretty Lillian." It's just another new girl thing for him to get used to.

Pics from this week

I'm all about coordinating outfits, but they are hard to find. I'm one of those corny people who if had two boys, yes, I would dress them alike. It's so hard to find clothes for a boy and girl to wear. Gymboree is one place that I know I can go and find outfits. I also found some at H&M the other day. Also, today has been the first day for me to put a headband on Lillian. As soon as I can capture a picture with it on I will put it up.
Here is Big Lillian and Little Lillain together. Grandma came over to visit the other night.
Little Lil' was actually good for her as she is usually very attached to mommy.
Grant put his helmet on him in the house and he went crazy. I bought it this summer and "big head" is already growing out of it. I guess will just buy an adult one for next year and Sister can wear this one.

Happy Halloween

I thought this was so funny, look at their mouths
He's in a firefighter outfit...sort of
We had a decent Halloween this year. Josiah has had a cold so we didn't do much. Our neighborhood had a cookout so we went down there and had dinner. Then we went to two houses on our street. He didn't really know what was going on. He did get a tootsie pop that we worked on for a while. Grant was disappointed that I didn't get the kids real costumes, but I figured next year will be different. He will understand more and hopefully he won't be sick.
Emma, Ellie, Amelia, Madeline, Josiah
Last night we had a cookout down at the bottom ground. The weather was perfect. It's funny when we first started having bonfires we didn't have any kids and now we are up to two. It's definately not the same just sit around a fire and relax. We now worry where the kids are at, not in the creek or too close to the fire. It'll be fun in a few years when they are really in to roasting marshmallows and writing their names in the air with a burning stick. Then we'll be worried about someone getting poked in the eye. I guess it'll always be something new.
