Twin Group Halloween Party

We went to the twin group Halloween party in San Luis. I think we dressed the girls as ladybugs (no photo!), but went as ourselves. Our little family was clearly not up to snuff compared to several of the others!

The chef, the dinner lobster, and the diner!

Two little cows & their mama
(Can't remember, but I think these might have been two little bulls)

Ummm... Wizard of Oz?
(I don't know a story of Hansel & Gretl and a lion)

Dumbo, the flying elephant (I think)
(Can't remember what his sibling was wearing)

The Barn, Avila Beach, CA

"Wow! Mama finally caught both of you looking at the camera. But Mariella what's up with the hay?"
"Mariella, hay is for horses, not US lady bugs"....

...but, if Mariella is eating it...

"Anneka girl, you don't know what your miss'n!"

"Okay, monkey see monkey do, looks like Mama's photo shoot is over!"

There's nothing like twins leading each other into trouble!

Baby Steps...

No, not yet, but it feels like baby steps sometimes for us parents. Every day is packed, what with work, dinner meetings, and projects (for Papa) & feedings, diaper changes, naps, doctor visits, etc. (for Mama); but when we get to the end of the week, we're not sure exactly what we accomplished.
Still, in two days, the twins will be 6 months old, and they seem rather unperturbed by the whole process. Anneka is working her arms with push-ups, and Mariella is honing her balance muscles anytime she can convince someone to help her with standing up. Both are just starting on solid food. (Is rice cereal solid food?) Like we said: baby steps... Thrilling for Mama & Papa, of course, but probably not something we'll be trying to work up into a movie script and peddle in Hollywood.

Meanwhile, Mama & Papa have been able to take the occasional date night. Tonight, we saw Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers play bluegrass music at the Performing Arts Center in SLO.
It was good show and an enjoyable outing, but now we're tired, and going (yawn) to bed.
