The Christmas Tree Hunt...

Well now I know what hunting for the perfect tree is like with two 21 monthers! Now while I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, we really had a great time. The twins were giddy running around everywhere. Piper loved her Santa hat and did NOT want to take it off! Maxwell was wearing his new jacket, which we didn't realize is so warm that he was all sweaty when we got home from running around even though it's COLD outside. What a big boy!

Halloween and Other Fun Stuff...

Halloween this year wasn't too eventful. The twins didn't go trick or treating. I think they are still a little young to understand what that's all about. I can see it now, they'd be wanting to walk inside of all of the houses. They'd probably cry at half of the decorations at the different houses. Maybe next year. We did go down to see my dad at work with the twins in their costumes. Maxwell was a construction worker. Piper was a cheerleader. I had her hair in pigtails, but lately she's been pulling them out any chance she can get. Doesn't she understand beauty is pain?

Movie night in Mommy's and Daddy's bed. They LOVED this. It was their first time watching something tucked in our bed. I believe the movie was Cloudy, With a Chance of Meatballs. It's one of their favorites at the moment...

A Little of Everything...

One thing that we do EVERY SINGLE DAY is go to see Grampy and Daddy at work. We almost always go to Starbucks before and get our morning coffee cake, which the babies call "baba." Actually, any kind of food or drink is called a "baba." Silly toddlers. Once there, Maxwell runs to where a few engines are out on display, he loves to steal the oil filler cap and run around with it. Piper loves to run around touching everything in sight. Here are some pictures of Maxwell and Piper while visiting Daddy and Grampy's Parts Store.

Piper and Maxwell have been playing outside in the dirt and grass a lot lately. It's been a daily ritual since the weather has been so nice here. I took a couple of pictures. Piper looks so cute in her pigtails, and Maxwell is adorable hiding in one of his favorite big bushes.

This is a picture of Piper after she's worked her way almost out of her diaper. If it weren't for her underwear, or "pickle panties," she would be completely naked. You see, we've started having to put underwear over her diaper because she loves to take off her diaper. And we all know how dangerous that can be.

Today after Ian got off of work we went to the Pumpkin Patch with Maxwell and Piper. They had such a good time. They loved being pulled in the Radio Flyers. They like to point at the pumkins and say "wheeeee" as they rolled around looking at all of the pumpkins. We ended up picking out some really cool looking ones. I can't wait to set them up outside of the front door. Here are a couple of the pictures we took tonight. Notice how excited Maxwell is in one of the pictures. He's so funny.

Pigtails and New P.J.'s!!

I'm so proud of the fact that I can FINALLY do SOMETHING with Piper's hair. The poor thing has extremely fine hair with lots of calics. It's the cutest thing though. I love it.

In other news, we went shopping at the Baby Gap for some new p.j.'s tonight. My all time favorite outfit for a toddler is a great pair of pajamas. Love the diaper butt!!!

Disneyland Trip

We went to Disneyland last week with my parents, my sister-in-law, Jennie, and my sister's family. As you can imagine, with two 18 monthers, it was a little hectic. We still managed to have a good time. I can't wait to go back. Maybe next year.

Dinner time and group photos.

Fun at the pool.

It's a Small World and Storybook Land

Aunt Jennie was a HUGE help! So a big thanks to her!!

I love Maxwell's goofy faces!

Maxwell loved playing on Grampy's bed while in the Hotel rooms.

Daddy's so fun!

We spent a lot of our time walking around, people watching. It's hard to go on a lot of rides with two 18 month olds. Although they did love It's a Small World, the carousel, and the Storybook Land.

Ian with Maxwell on the carousel. Maxwell loved it! I sat with Piper on the bench.

The meeting of Mickey did not go over as planned. Piper wanted as far away as possible, and Maxwell wanted to touch his face the whole time. No screaming though, so we were off to a decent start.

Piper wanted her Grandma to hold her almost the whole time. Poor Grammy!

Grandpa Mark with Bubby, or Maxwell, for those of you who may not know.

Aunt Jennie and I with the babies the first morning we were there.

Every single morning lately Piper's hair has been extremely fly away. It's too funy! I just had to get a picture of it.
