We discovered Trick or Treating tonight, and a few other things too.
We went from house to house . . .
. . . rang every doorbell Mommy and Daddy would let us ring . . .
. . . and said hello to all our neighborhood friends. They all gave us special treats too.
We kept this up all though our neighborhood. We'll have to see our friends more often if we're going to get candy when we do it.
When we got home, we hand to check out our loot.
Look at the size of this yummy treat.
We kind of made a mess with all that food on the floor so we helped Mommy vacuum the floor. Has anyone seen three Teletubbies vacuuming before?
It was a pretty exhausting, but definitely fun evening.
Here we are, in all or Teletubbie glory. Thanks for making the costumes Grandma C, we were the hit of the neighborhood!
We went to the zoo the other day and we had to bring our keys to let all the animals out, just like in the book "Goodnight Gorilla." Where is that gorilla?
Needless to say the keys didn't work on the gorilla's cage, or any other animal's cage. So instead we headed to the play area and got wet.
You can see how easy it was.
Is this not the biggest card ever. Not only is it BIG, it's LOUD too. Thanks Aunt Jen-Jen
It's actually kind of hard to read while standing it's so big. That's OK, reading and standing or walking shouldn't be attempted anyway.
TRANSLATION: We go to school on Mondays. It's a great place with lots of stuff to do like jump on the trampoline . . .
. . . check out the sensory table . . .
. . . and play with the numerous toys, including lots of cars and trucks.
All that playing and learning works up quite a hunger and thirst. There is always time for a snack and some water.
We went to the doctor today for our two-year visit. We were told we did very, very well. We didn't exactly love being there, and we were none too happy with the shots and the finger poke for blood, but... we all survived. Fruit Snacks ("doot-natz") made everything better.
- Charley is 22.5 lbs. (still not on the charts), 32 inches (10th percentile), and has a 19 cm head circumference (40th percentile - Go big Head!).
- Jax is 24 lbs. (30th percentile!!! BIG jump!), 35 inches tall (75th percentile -- this is perhaps a bit too tall, it's hard to believe Charley is 3 inches shorter!), and head circumference of 18.5 inches (10th percentile).
The doctor was impressed with our vocabularies, and said that we look good. Though she would like Charley to gain a little weight. (We're trying. We got ice cream afterwards as a treat for being so good!) We got our flu shots while we were there, too, so hopefully we can avoid that this year. If we stay healthy, we don't go back for a whole year!
A piano!! "Why not?" said Aunt JenJen who gave us this totally rockin' gift for our birthday.
We go so into it that Daddy moved it into the middle of the living room so everyone could enjoy our talents.
An encore? Very soon dear friends. The live video from our first gig with the baby grand will be released soon.
When we woke up this morning, Mommy and Daddy had gifts in hand.
We certainly hope this trend continues.
We got these sweet bells for our bikes from Unkie Tyler and Ama Jill. Too bad it's windy, cold and a little snowy today. Otherwise we'd be all about ringing our new bells on our new bikes.
We had a costume party to celebrate our second birthday. Bumpa came dressed as a cowboy. He and Grandma C gave us our first Nerf balls.
We opened some presents at the end of the night, but were told there are many more. Thanks everyone for coming to see us on our special day.
Lots of our favorite people came to our birthday party today. Shivani and Heera came (Shashank and Naveen were there too).
Anna and Sophia came with their Mommy and Daddy.
And of course Kinsey was there too. She helped us play the kazoo, among other things.
Grandma C made our Teletubbie costumes. She also made the hats but we decided not to wear them.
Even Mommy and Daddy were Teletubbies too.
They were pretty awesome costumes. The hats were cool, we're just not used to wearing funny hats like that.
Check out Mommy and Daddy in their Teletubbie costumes . . .
. . . and Bumpa and Grandma C in their Cowpoke costumes. They came to the party on their horses, Stinky and Rose. Can you guess who rode which horse?
We were having so much fun at our birthday party, it only got better when Mommy gave us cake too.
The cake was awesome, but it helped to have a piece of bread to cleanse our palettes.
So our cakes are the little ones. Can you tell which big one is the other cake?
We've been so busy lately with Grandma and Kinsey in town. This morning we went to a place called "The Blast". We had lots of fun crawling through the tunnels . . .
. . . and dodging these giant swinging things.
There was this one tunnel that required a little more caution and concentration. There were lots of holes in the bottom and we kind of sank when we entered it.
