Halloween 2011

We didn't take Bailey out trick or treating to houses last night because she had done plenty and because we went to see Sid's grandmother, Mammie, at the assisted living place and that took longer than expected.  She got to trick or treat up and down the halls there with Mason, so she was perfectly fine.

I'm having to blog using Google chrome now and I do not like it.  Once I get my pictures loaded, it's hard to go back to them and leave a caption.  For some reason, internet explorer shuts down when I try to post from it.

Here are some pictures from yesterday.  The girls wore their pumpkin outfits again but I still didn't get great pictures of both of them.

My sweet little witch!

I don't think I've ever posted a picture of the stroller. I LOVE this thing.  It came recommended from my friend, and fellow twin mom, Mandy.  It only weighs like 10lbs and is just a frame.  All you do is unhook the babies from the base of their seats and click them on the frame of this thing.  It is sooo easy to use and has bought us some time at having to purchase a very expensive twin stroller.  There is an entire planet of double and triple strollers out there.  I was saved of the decision for a bit by getting this.  It's obviously only good as long as the babies are in carriers.  And it was a bit un-natural to push at first because it feel so long, but we love it!!!

My little witch checking out a pumpkin beside one of the resident's doors.

Mammie with 4 of her great grand children - Mason, Ellie, Elissa, and Bailey.

Elissa took a break from being passed around and rested on Mammie's bed.  She is such a sweet baby, and soooo big!! But, I will say that she is no bigger, in fact smaller, than two other baby girls I know that were born after her.  She does get rice in her bottle due to reflux, but so does Ellie and she isn't this big.  Elissa is just a big baby.  But isn't she sooo pretty!!!

Partner's in crime!!  Bailey worships this child.  When Mason walked in, she squealed, "AHHH, my cowboy Mason!!!"

I tried to get a few pictures of Bailey and the girls, but it didn't turn out so well.  They are just too much for her to handle alone.  Elissa is just too heavy for her and Ellie is so nosey, she has her own agenda when she is up looking around.  

I took a picture of the girls close up after we got them back in the car seat.  

This little girl is already a Mama's girl!  Sweet thing, Miss Ellie.  Look at those eyes.

Elissa, snoozing again!

When we were leaving, Colin pulled up with his mom and sister.  He was a police man.  He told me the other day he was a good police man, not a bad one that arrested people.  Haha!  Of course, Mason did not want his picture taken with the littles so he made a face...and they had to make one too!!

In other news, I ventured out of the house alone with both babies today.  It is not for the faint of heart and I will not be doing it again anytime soon. I have been somewhere with Bailey and one baby, and of course all 3 girls with Sid's help, but never both babies without someone else in tow.  

We take Elissa to see our beloved ENT, Dr. Carron, tomorrow.  The doctor has thrown out several things she wants to rule out, the condition Bailey had being one of them.  I don't know what's going on, but something for sure is and I'm ready to get to the bottom of it.  I don't feel that he will be able to diagnose her in his office, although he can do a preliminary upper airway scope.  I'm thinking that Elissa will have to go to the OR for a sedated, more detailed scope.  I am VERY nervous, but I will say it could be alot worse and I recognize that!!!

Great photos! I've been reading a long since your babies were just considering names! I have a 6 month old named Elsa, and I pushed for Elissa (or Eliza or Elise!). Such a great name pair!

I wanted to recommend the Schwinn Double Tourismo. IT IS AWESOME. It fits in the back of my jeep fine, its not heavy to push (to lift when its collasped is harder) and its narrower than I thought - it fits in our front door and in all but the clothing aisles of stores. Really, REALLY recommend!
