Terrible 2s!

The twins are officially 2! We had a small party to celebrate with friends and family. The twins requested mac cheese and carrot cake cupcakes for their birthday. They picked out their own outfits for the day, had their hair sprayed pink, blue, and orange, and had a dance party before the guests arrived. 

 Enjoying Halloween candy after their cupcakes. 

 Colette really likes chocolate!

 Devlin, Lex, and Jack had to "help" the twins open their presents.

  Griffin playing hide n' seek.

 The boys got armor in their goody bags.

Coco got a one-of-a-kind bedazzled cowboy hat, thanks to Molly.

Griffin is our mover, he loves to dance and just be silly. He is also the best hugger and loves a good snuggle. Griffin does not talk as much as Coco, but Griffin is very good at expressing how he feels, from "I tired" to "I hungry". Griffin asks every morning if he can go outside and play and every night he asks to ride his bike. He will go, go, go until he collapses.

The twins are both good sleepers. They go to bed at 7:30 and Griffin is usually up by 7, but Colette likes to sleep until 7:30-8. Colette will tell Griffin that he is "not nice" if he wakes her up. The twins are finally napping for us, which means we get to relax from 12:30-2:30 on the weekends.

Halloween 2014

Devlin was Chase from Paw Patrol. 
 Griffin was Marshall, but he refused to wear his costume for more than 30 seconds. 
Colette wearing her Skye hat. 
Originally, Devlin wanted to be Pac-Man and the twins were going to be Pinky and Blinky. Devlin changed his mind at the last minute, but Colette loved her Pinky costume. 
 We took the kids to their preschool for the Halloween Spooktacular. I took the kids up early to help set-up. The kids got to play games, trick-or-treat, and go through a haunted maze. I was the fortune teller at the Spooktacular.

They were super excited and had a hard time standing still for pictures.

 Colette found a snickers bar and devoured it.
