This past Halloween was so much fun for us and the girls. They really "got it" this year and liked talking about it. After our trip to the Pumpkin Patch, the girls understood where the pumpkins came from and helped Jeff pick out patterns to carve their little pumpkins. Maddison chose a cat and Cameryn chose a bat. Funny how those two rhyme ;)
In the coming days leading up to Halloween, the girls were very excited to dress up and go trick or treating. Cameryn was a horse and Maddison was a cowgirl. They practiced saying "Trick-or-Treat" and "Thank You" before going out on the chilly October night. They made it around the block, which really was rather pushing it on their stamina walking in their costumes on a cold night with no coat. Oh! were they excited to get their candy though. We let them have two pieces of candy that night and have been sparingly dishing it out ever since. Jeff's mom came over to see the girls in their costumes and she came in with a mask and a hat which the girls really didn't know what to think of. Ever since Halloween the girls have been talking about it and asked if they could go again soon. It was a great spooktacular night.
Another milestone that recently they conquered was the ridding of the ever loved pacifiers aka "binkies." The girls put them into baggies and we brought them over to "Baby Chase's" house. Baby Chase is a friend of ours' 10 month old baby. Cameryn excitedly handed hers right over while Maddison hung on to hers until it was time to leave. There was about 15 minutes of crying that night right before bed, until they drifted off to sleep. The next day a little whining, but now no tears and no whining. It really wasn't as bad as I anticipated it being.
I will be 26 weeks pregnant tomorrow and my belly is growing and growing and growing!!! I am feeling pretty good except for the sciatic pain I am feeling which I never got with the girls surprisingly. I am definitely in need of a good massage about now.
Jeff has been busy busy busy at work. One of their competitors filed for bankruptcy and closed their doors so he has been very busy trying to attain their past clients.
That's it from the Woollard home! Enjoy the pics!
