Auntie #2 (or #4, depending on how you count)

Good morning, all! It is a pretty miserable day here...not super cold, but cooler than it has been and drizzly and very, very dark. I would love to be able to take a day like today and spend it curled up in bed with my baby girls, but alas life has interfered. Damn you responsibilities!!!

Lottsa fun this weekend! Tinkerbelle and her Mom came to visit and to meet her two nieces, which was just plain lovely. The girls were sorta cranky all weekend, to be honest, especially MA. I think she is teething and it is irritating her in a way that her sister didn't seem to be bothered when her teeth grew in. So she didn't nap well, didn't want to eat, didn't want to be held, didn't want to be by herself...just being kind of a little twerp:-)

She did really well as long we kept her moving, though. We spent most of the day on Saturday out...walking, shopping, eating, etc. The girls did really well with that, but they were exhausted when we got home! They were both asleep by 7:00, which is a little early for them (usually MA goes down by 7:30 and LK is 8:00 or so.) But that gave me and Tinkerbelle a chance to hang out, which was nice!

Sunday included some pumpkin hunting! I bought the two tiniest little pumpkins I have ever seen for the girls:-) The part of me that wishes I was a photographer would love to pose them each with their pumpkin for adorable pictures...but I would a) never get that done, and b) never get around to posting it here anyway:-P So, um, yea...

That was pretty much it. It was a really nice visit, and it was great to see the little bugger. I know I say this all the time, but I don't get to see her nearly enough. I have been spoiled with Sister #1! Speaking of which, Munchkin wasn't feeling great all weekend, so she skipped out on Fantasy Football watching yesterday...but we did make spaghetti and meatballs for dinner, so it wasn't a total loss! I have a feeling she may go home from school early today rather than go to a rainy, cold soccer practice. I may even strongly encourage her to do that.

I guess that is about it. Nothing terribly exciting!

I KNOW you have an LG EnV that takes photos and can send them right away to whatever image hosting site you use. Ahem! :)

You are correct on the phone...but I am barely organized enough to download pictures off of my camera, so using an image hosting site is right out!

Let Munchkin and The Boy take the pictures of the girls with the tiny pumpkins! The pictures will be adorable and I promise you--you won't ever be sorry that you took the time to take them. They're growing fast, and this will be the last time they're this age. The pictures might even be among your favorites in twenty years! And who knows--it might turn out so well that it becomes a yearly tradition.


P.S. I would love to see them, too! :)
