March Of The (Halloween) Penguins

November 2, 2009

This was our second family Halloween with Dominik & Scarlett and this year they got to go trick or treating. In this picture we got our family portrait in front of the same house we got it in front of last year. Does everyone look the same? I’m pointing at the camera so the twins will look at it but babies are pretty much into doing their own thing.

Trick Or Treat

Although you can’t see it in this picture Dominik was able to do a fair bit of waddling.  Given that he only really started walking a couple weeks ago he did great!


At our first stop Scarlett took a piece of  candy we’d put into her bucket and tried to add it into the bowl of candy being offered up by our neighbor instead of taking one from him and adding it to her bucket. After a little tutorial from Mom and Dad she understood that she was supposed to take a candy and add it to her bucket and got it right the rest of the night.


All in all they were able to visit about 10 houses about 50% under their own power and seemed to have a really good time doing it.

Pumpkin Time Is Coming

October 18, 2009

This will be Dominik and Scarlett’s second Halloween and they’re already very excited. This year was their first trip to the pumpkin patch so we can show them how to make jack o’ lanterns.


Scarlett picked out her pumpkin right away.

Then after some very thorough inspection Dominik made his selection too.

Domi was dressed as a skeleton.

And Scarlett was dressed as a cat.

We had a lovely night on the town!

Halloween is such an important holiday that we dressed the twins up twice.  Here are some photos of their morning outfits that were gifts from Lulu:
