Generous People

I simply cannot believe the amount of work people put into their blogs and giveaways! Wow! And yes I am a sucker for giveaways, maybe someday I'll actually win something. I found yet another quilt giveaway this morning over at Camille's blog. She is even letting you pick the pattern! It makes me want to get busy on my Christmas present making. My babies get a quilt for their first Christmas so I have to get moving on Zoey's if its going to be ready in time.

Its been a busy few weeks getting settled back into our routines here at home. Lots of crazy Charlotte talking nonstop and now Zoey is learning too. She can say "Momma" and something that sounds awfully similar to "I love you" so that's what we say she says...

Charlotte has been learning songs and her bedtime prayers. She now sings along and hits most of the important words in her prayers. Its so sweet but sad because it means my baby is growing up. Can't I freeze them at this age??? Last week she was looking at the computer and this picture was up on the screen. And she starts yelling about Daddy having a chicken on his head.

So yup... that's my hubby w/ the "chicken" on his head...two year olds are so funny. And their language is inspiring. Charlotte can talk quite well but her sounds don't always come out when needed. So she needs "nuggles" when she is "tidered" And then there is "fat jump" because what two year doesn't like to jump. She had asked if I would jump with her and I told her no and then she wanted to know if Daddy would jump with her and I told her that probably was not a very good idea. The response to which we heard from Daddy in the kitchen "Was that a fat joke?" which was immediately interpreted by Charlotte as "fat jump" Maybe things are funnier in the moment so maybe typing it does not give it the justice it deserves but I try.

Halloween Costumes and Pictures

It appears that I am a forgetful duck!!! I have been home over a week now and I have not posted any pictures. I am very sorry for not remembering!!!! My computer is loading them as I type so I will try to get some up, however I apparently took close to 200 so it will only be a small sampling of our adventures. Or not...I couldn't decide!

We are slowly getting settled back in to life in our own crazy farmhouse. Zoey is now into everything so I am having to re-child proof everything, which I did not think was possible since I had already done it for Charlotte. She can walk along furniture and even walk only holding on with one hand. Charlotte seems to be readjusting well and we are slowly ridding her of some of the lovely bad habits she picked up being off routine. She is talking so much more now. She and Zac constantly argue over me..."my ducky no my ducky" which is cute and makes me feel loved so I let it continue. The other night at dinner she kept calling me "my woman" ...not entirely sure where that phrase came from but Zac encouraged her until she started calling him "my woman". She survived trick or treating last night far better than anybody anticipated due to her fear of costumes, masks, and face paint. Once she realized that the clowns and pumpkins at the houses would give her candy she did very well. She ended up with half of a pumpkin of candy! Our only sticking point today was fear of Uncle Kyle. Apparently the face paint stuck with her and when he tried to come in today (without face paint) she about had a coronary until she actually saw him and realized he looked normal (well, normal for him anyway;)
