Our Little Pumpkins!

Call me lame, but I thought it would be fun to have the kids be in matching or themed costumes. This year they ended up matching, but we'll see what we do in the future.

Aurora as a pumpkin...
Quinn as a sleeping pumpkin...
Out trick or treating...he slept almost the entire time.
Aurora wouldn't hold still long enough for me to get a decent picture of her trick or treating. She loved looking at all the decorations--so much so that she didn't go get candy from many of the houses our group stopped at. We headed home when we got too cold (it wasn't bad, but it was chilly).

We did manage to grab a family photo before heading inside! :) (No, this isn't our house--we went to a friend's house for a little get-together/dinner/fun for the evening.)
Someone gave Aurora a bunch of glow sticks, which she became very attached to. Since they don't glow for long, we decided to let Aurora take them to bed with her. She laid them all out next to her pillow as she was snuggling down in bed...
Silly goose! I hope she's not too disappointed to discover they don't glow anymore tomorrow (we have warned her, but we'll see...).

Off to raid Aurora's candy basket!

Just Aurora

We were driving home from a shopping trip and Aurora was pretending to drive our "spaceship" (the car)...

Regina: Aurora, are you the spaceship's pilot?
Aurora: No.
R: Are you the co-pilot?
A: No!
R: Are you the...navigator?
A: Nooooo...
R: Are you the engineer?
A: NooOooO!
Wil: Are you a passenger?
A: No!
R: Then what are you on the spaceship, Aurora?
A: I just Adova on the spacesip!

How precious is that? We told her we were glad that she was just Aurora and that we liked Aurora just as she is. :)

Aurora had eaten very well at dinner, so Wil offered her a treat...

Wil: Would you like 1 Strawberry Newton?
Aurora: 2 strawberry fig newtons!
Wil: about no strawberry newtons?
Aurora: 1!
Wil: 1 it is!

Aurora is going to have to learn to bargain really well to win a bargain with Daddy!

I decided today to pull out some of Aurora's tiny baby photos. I enjoyed looking at them so much and comparing them to Quinn's that I thought others would enjoy doing the same. So here you go! Click on the photos to see them larger.

Newborn comparison

2 week comparison

1 month comparison

6 week  comparison
Can you believe that Quinn is already 6 weeks old?! Wow!

Gratuitous Quinn Photos

Because he's just so stinking cute...

...cuddled up like this...
...making faces...
...deciding to wake up or not...
...covering his eyes from the bright sun light...
...looking around... just a diaper...
...and sucking his thumb (when he can catch it).

Waking Babies and Dinosaurs

Poor Quinn sometimes has a hard time waking up...

And Aurora loves looking at the details of Quinn's tiny clothes...
