The Girls

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving spent mostly on the Normangee farm. There was turkey-eating, hay-jumping, movie-watching and lots of good ol' fashioned fun. I got some cute pics of Maizie and Brooke (cousins born two weeks apart) that I wanted to post before life gets in the way. So here are the wonder twins at 2 months old....
Here they are now. On the way to the farm, Maizie said, "I have lots of cousins, but two of them are just my age--Megan and Brooke!"

Here are all the girl cousins in the younger set-Megan, Maizie, Brooke and Kaitlyn.
Love these girls and can't wait to watch them grow up as close cousins.

Ahoy, Me Halloween Maties!

We took our second annual Halloween trip to San Antonio this year, thanks to the most hospitable Maloneys. They are quite the opposite of the Veggie Tales' Pirates Who Don't Do Anything. They do everything and do it all the way. It was all kinds of fun. The bubble from last year made a reaappearance at Trunk or Treat at their church. We passed out glow in the dark bracelets and Maizie had fun bossing around older kids around "her bubble." On Sunday, the pirate ship was completed and Grant and Amanda had all the trick-or-treaters repeat the Pirate Oath to get a piece of their booty. Jason was an evil....sorry, I'm really not sure what Jason was, but he said funny things and held a musket while sitting in a canoe.

Maizie was a pirate princess. Instead of saying "Trick or Treat" at each door, Maizie said, "My name is Maizie and I am a pirate princess and this is Anderson he is my brother but today his is a PAR-rot not a PIR-ate and he doesn't say much and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!" We didn't make it very far.

One of my favorite memories from this year is when I had them both try on their costumes Friday. Anderson asked for a cracker and I asked Maizie to share hers with him. She followed him around saying "Polly want a cracker?" Wish I had a video camera for that one! Anyway, his costume was by far the easiest to make and I think it turned out cute for minimal effort. Here's my little bird.

Hope you all had a Happy Halloween. And thanks, Fancy Pants and Amanda, for making it one for the record books. Sorry we destroyed many of your worldly possessions. Treasure up in heaven, right?
