Our Fun Weekend

It's been a long weekend. Friday night I was pretty beat, since I was up with Boots since 5am. She decided that was a good time to wake up. So I snuck her into the spare room and tried to get her to go back to sleep with me ... but no go. She was up, and just wanted to chit chat and watch Tigger and Pooh. So I made it through work on Friday ... and I couldn't get to sleep fast enough that night.

Saturday she was up again at 5am. Lucky for me, it was my turn to sleep in, and DH's turn to get up with them. So he was up from 5am on ... I ended up sleeping in until like 8am, which doesn't seem like much, but it was!! Especially considering I went to bed at like 10pm the night before.

We went to music class on Saturday, and ran a few errands, and then came home and put the kids down for a nap. Boots took a good 2.5 hour one, and so did DH. Once everyone woke up, we got ready for my cousin's halloween party. We did a family costume ... I was Wilma Flintstone, DH was Fred, and the twins were Pebbles and Bam Bam ... they were so cute. I'm really annoyed right now, because I have pictures to share with you, and shutterfly is not working!! Blech! And to make matters worse, I didn't get one picture of the 4 of us together! But my cousins did, so hopefully they can forward some over so I can post them! The party was fun, if not certainly chaotic ... there were a LOT of kids there! Here's a few pics I snapped of the family before and during the party.

Now, the kids are also going to be Eeyore and Piglet at daycare on Friday for Halloween. We found the cosumes in our basement a few weeks ago. My cousin has triplets that are exactly 4 years older than the twins. So she had given me a whole bunch of stuff, and we found Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet costumes. So cute! Here are a few pics from us trying the costumes on.

The Sweetest Piglet you have ever seen.


And look at this Eeyore. Seriously, he is a chubby Moop.


DH and I played Rock Band 2 Saturday night for a few hours, and then off to bed I went. Only to be woken up by that Boot at 5am again. Seriously, this crap is getting old.

My parents and sister and Ant came over on Sunday for the day, my mom brought her homemade sauce and meatballs and sausage. It was super delish, and we all ate a lot like piggies. The kids were beyond adorable as they proudly showed their support of the NY Giants. And they certainly were lucky helping the Giants win the game!


Finally, DH brought Halloween cupcakes for dessert the other night. Here is the main difference between my kids. Look at my dainty little lady eating a cupcake. She kept putting one finger in the icing and eating very sweetly.

Her brother on the other hand? Not so much.
