the first few weeks and halloween

life is definitely different now!
but in the best possible way.
these two girls are so beautiful and sweet that i don't even mind only sleeping for 1-2 hour stretches at night. i don't think any other people could make me feel that way.
they have stolen our hearts completely!

i think the 2 most common phrases at our home these days are:
i love our girls so much!
they are just so cute!

sabrina & fiona had their 2 week check-ups last wednesday and are doing wonderfully!
they both met and passed their birth weights by 3 oz. sabrina weighed 6 lbs. and was in the 3rd percentile for her weight and fiona weighed 6 lbs. 6 oz. and was in the 5th percentile. SO TINY!

i'll get onto the pictures now(there are a lot. but give me a break, they are cute!):

we had a pretty chill halloween this year.
saturday night we made this delicious pumpkin chili, and this delicious pumpkin pie dip, hung out with grandma karen and grandpa dave, and had about 4 trick-or-treaters come to our door.

on sunday, we had a halloween party at grandma dianne's and grandpa wayne's house. lots of kids, lots of noise, lots of food. and the girls were the center of attention (of course)!


  1. Love the football costumes! Seriously cute. They are so tiny. I loved the pictures. What sweet girls you have. If you ever want to get out of the house I am always (almost) home.

  2. Cute! I don't think I'd mind the 1- to 2-hour stretches of sleep either. And yum, I want some of that pumpkin chili and dip. Look at you go, Mom! I like that Dallin and Fiona match with their pinks.

  3. They are so perfect!!! I love them! Love the costumes and I think the picture of you asleep with both of them on you is the best picture EVER! You two make beautiful babies!

  4. Oh my gosh - those football costumes are ADORABLE! Did you make them??

  5. this makes me want twin girls :) so cute. congratulations!

  6. remember how you have really cute kids? i can't imagine seeing the 3rd percentile on ANY chart of emma's (except maybe attention span). i was shocked when her weight dropped back ON TO the chart. there's no hope for her height and head size though. i can't wait to hold and squish those two!!
