Two Babies, One Week!

For the second time, Tom and I got two new family member's in one week! You may remember this post from 2011 when Baby Trey and Eva were born just four days apart. Ashley went into the hospital the day Kate left. It was exciting to have two new babies at the same time.
 We found out back in May that that would happen again! Kara and Ann were both pregnant, due just days apart. This time we were hoping they would actually overlap. No such luck. Kara left the hospital just hours before Ann went in. Meet two new adorable babies. Tom and I are ecstatic to be aunt and uncle again.

I've already had the opportunity to babysit sweet Molly while Kara and Claire went to Claire's soccer game. I had a blast taking her on her first walk. What a sweet and tiny little one.

Tom and I are looking forward to watching these kiddos grow up.

Pumpkin Patch and Kid's Family Halloween Party

Last Sunday we were lucky enough to get the kids together for a trip to the pumpkin patch and a family Halloween party. It was a beautiful but chilly morning and the kids loved running around and looking at all of the different pumpkins and Halloween decorations. I had a blast watching them play and reminiscing on our time there as kids. Below are a bunch of pictures I took of the kids playing.

Below are our attempts of pictures of Mom with some of her grandbabies (still missing two)

Tj and I posing for a picture just like one we have from when we were little... I'll have to dig that one up and share!

After the pumpkin patch we went home for a Halloween party. All the kids were there! TOO fun seeing them all in costume. It was a beautiful afternoon to play outside and enjoy some Halloween games and crafts.

What a great day with family! We are looking forward to many more celebrations in the holiday season to come!
