Trick or treat. Smell my feet.

Who knew that Halloween could be so exhausting!

The girls were not up and about until 8:00 on Saturday morning. I wish I could say that they slept until 8:00 but that doesn't happen on the weekends around here. Oh, no. Em and I slept downstairs all night. Friday night, she had fallen asleep in her crib but I was concerned because she was running a fever. As Rich and I were trying to get ready for bed (early), Em woke up and wouldn't lay back down in her crib so at 10:20, I brought her downstairs and prepared to spend the entire night sleeping on the cushions. She didn't sleep well either. Tossing and turning. And then from 6:20 to 8:00 the next morning, Anna would cry out every twenty minutes or so causing Rich to run into their room to calm her down.

We brought the girls to visit Grandma (Rich's mom) after breakfast.

They didn't quite know how to trick or treat.

And decided that playing with leaves was more fun.

After the girls' nap, we headed over to Auntie Joan's for some more trick or treating. The girls were shy around Auntie Joan and Uncle Joe and refused to have anything to do with Angel but they LOVED the M&Ms.

We decided to not bring the girls out trick or treating this year. They really don't need the candy and they proved to us that they have no idea how to trick or treat so we thought that they would have more fun watching the kids trick or treat at our house. And they did. Although Allie ran off to the family room a few times saying that she was scared.

I thought that they would wear their costumes for the trick or treaters but they seemed indifferent when I asked so I dropped it. I'm glad I was able to take some cute pictures of the girls together with their costumes on a few weeks ago because I did not have the opportunity to do so on Halloween.

And I was finally able to capture Em dancing. She says that she's a ballerina but she actually appears to be performing some type of new age dance.

And yes, now that there are tutus in the house, be prepared for a million ballerina pictures.

My I offer some unasked for and maybe repeated and useless advice? Why don`t you turn to a family bed at least until you make the pretty little new room and put them in pretty little beds that they will love and sleep the whole sound night in?

I have my twins in a single mattress at the side of my queen mattress (all on the floor - I'll put my bed back up when they grow out of it).

Sleeping on those cushions, ouch!
