I had a hard time picking Nov's photos. There are too many cute ones. I sound terrible boasting my kids are cute. They are, but it's the photos that are cute or funny. One of our readers "Lois" told me her kids think Luke & Bree are celebrities because they see them on the internet. So I have to do my best and have them live up to the high expectation :-)

I thought I'd start with Bree's latest talent - breaking the laptop's keyboard.

Watching TV instead of playing in their exersaucers.

AMBER & PAUL'S WEDDING - Mike's cousin got married and of course it was an excuse to dress them up. Her colors were a fall theme so I dressed them accordingly. We love orange, it's a good thing it suits them.

Sitting on the pew, waiting for the ceremony to start.

Family shot after wedding.

Bree implying "I don't know this man."

Brothers and their cameras.

Notice the matching bread and bibs.

I love this photo of Bree with Grandpa.

Mike says this is one of those pics 'only a mom/dad loves' (click on the photo to enlarge to fully appreciate it).

Luke's most recent accomplishment. It was cute after the first couple times, now it's a bit annoying :-)

I see a future with Cirque Du Soleil for my son.

Notice how carefully he's balanced. It helps to have chubby feet, better to grip.

Bree enjoying the Pottery Barn catalog.

Another face only a mother could love. C'mon, notice the red nose from being so scrunched up. How cute is that? (click on this one too)

One of the sadder days. Both babies were sick. Bree's temp was 104+ degrees. We used wet wash cloths to cool them down.

AQUARIUM OF THE PACIFIC - We went again, this time with the kids' cousins, aunts and uncle. Mike was able to come too, his first time.

Bree wondering why her cousin has so much hair than she does.

Daddy and kids in wonderment.

Daddy getting artsy with the camera.

Cousin Audrey getting attacked by the lorikeet (it's on her head!).

I love my daughter.

Back view of Aunt Chris' do.
This is how we feed twins.

To be in this photo, 1) you have to have a baby, 2) born in 2007 and 3) in a Bjorn.

JANSTA THANKSGIVING - It was great because we didn't have to choose one family over the other. Mike's parents invited my family over for a huge dinner. Two turkeys - one deep fried, the other oven roasted! Yum!

The twins' first Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, it wasn't all that for them. Although they were fine in the morning, they started getting sick when we arrived at Grandma & Grandpa J's house. Luke was warm and went down for a nap, missing the big dinner. Bree stayed with us, but didn't like the turkey or anything else. We put her down for a nap soon after. They ended up being pretty sick. Bree's temp was over 104 for a couple days (off and on). Luke's didn't get that high, but he was just as miserable. I didn't get as many pics because I was tending to sick babies. Oh well, next year...

Newly married Aunt Amber & Uncle Paul watching Bree eat a book.

Uncle Eric and Grandpa R.

Grandpa J winning the battle with the deep fried turkey.

In all its glory. Yummmmm
Crazy long table.

Well I didn't get caught up by Christmas. I tried and I'm still posting. Once I'm finished, I'll upload the Christmas ones (me thinks).

As you can see, we were really busy in October. Lots of firsts for the babes. I'm doing things I would've never done, but am having more fun than I thought possible. You can see for yourself.


Kids in the wheel barrow. Looks like they're up to mischief.

Luke having a ball.

They don't like the fact the fruit is bigger than them.

One of my all time favorites.

Kelly, one of my dearest friends, meeting the babes for the first time.

Luke chillin'

Care to guess what's on Bree's back? [Hint: it's seeping thru her onesie]


Bree having a ball with Grandma J.

DISNEYLAND - We tagged along our niece's first trip to Disneyland. She's 2 1/2 years old. It was Luke & Bree's first time also and I forgot the camera! I was almost ill not being able to document every single moment of the day. My sister loaned us theirs, but of course they had their own pics to take. Here's what we got -

The entire park was decorated for Halloween. Mickey's ear were made up of orange pumpkins, his smile were white pumpkins!

The kids and their first ears.

Like I said in my previous post, the hardest part is compiling, organizing and uploading the photos. Once it's uploaded, the rearranging is also a big pain. Blogger doesn't make it easy to move things around, but I think I got things where I want them to be. I did have to delete some because I got confused and couldn't bother figuring it out. Remember, I'm trying to do this all the while my kids are screaming at me to get away from the computer and come play with them.

September was a busy month for us. We went to the fair, apple picking, to the park, etc. There's so much to do with little ones. We're having a blast with them.

Bree says "Aw geez mom, another post!?!?!?"

Luke finding his sister's ear fascinating

Such posers!

I love Luke's sly glance.


First time on the swing. Didn't know what to make of it.

Bree very doubtful.

Luke getting into the 'swing' of fun.

Don't you wish you had twins to do this?


Notice their birthday cupcakes and the kids nice & clean.

Poor cupcakes didn't stand a chance.

Bree having fun at the birthday party ball pit (I think).


At the entrance.

Posing in front of a huge tree.

Bree not sure what to make of the turkeys.

Bree giving directions on where to go next.


Getting the do's and don'ts on how to pick apples.

Aunt Chris minding the babes and/or the goat.

Reaching for the perfect apple.

Strolling along through the apple grounds.

Luke hates laundry as much as I do.

Bree loves laundry.

Bree standing for the first time!

Luke's turn asleep in the jumperoo.


Luke & his massive foot. Didn't even fit the shoe!
