Trick or treat!

We had a fun morning Downtown-they had a safe Halloween morning for the kiddies in town to come down and trick or treat with the local downtown businesses. We had a great time walking around looking at all the cute kids and visiting a few of our local business-owner frineds. Here are a few pictures of the morning.

Morgan was a monkey and LOVED her costume! Naturally-she is infatuated by monkeys and it was only fitting for Grandma Tutu to make the costume. Skylar thought she looked hilarious-she was laughing uncontrolably at her.

Skylar is a lion and has been practicing her ROAR all month long-she is one fierce lion!

Here are my little jungle animals together-are they not just so cute!!

And one more of my cute little monkey!

They were exhausted!

I forgot to attach these two pictures of the girls on the way home from the farm-the fresh air and sunshine just wore them out!

A visit to the Farm

Well Bryan had a day off so we got to go to a pumpkin patch/petting zoo together! I can't remember the last time we have gotten to do that, so we took the opportunity and ran with it! We ended up going to Martinez Farms in Fort Collins (boo rams!) and had a great time. They had cows, goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, pigs, ponies and a hay hill to climb-tons of fun to be had for all! And then we got to pick out a few pumpkins to bring home with us.

Morgan's highlights were feeding cutie the cow and all of the goats eating oats out of her hand. We couldn't believe that she actually did it, but I think she would have fed them all day if we let her! She had so much fun sitting on this tractor too!

Morgan loved climbing all of the hay stacks and she loved the little tractor too. She has been more and more interested in them these days-there is a house being built behind us so we hear tractors working a lot and every once in a while we go over and watch and look at the huge pile of dirt, so getting to sit on a real one was pretty cool!

And Skylar was just as curious as ever-but did not want to be held. They had the perfect fence for her to walk along and look at all of the animals. I think Cutie the cow was her favorite-that got the biggest reaction out of her, but I think she liked the little pigs too.

What a great fall day it was-we all enjoyed ourselves and the fresh air was perfect!

Skylar is taking great notes on how to be a great farmer! And look at that cute big sister showing her the ropes.

A great photo op around the tractor-too bad I have a great big wheel going through my face and Skylar looks like she is ready to bite someone's head off! Other than that it looks great!

Morgan and Skylar loved playing in the pumpkins. Skylar of course wanted to eat everything she could pick up and Morgan made a mess with the hay throwing it up in the air-but they sat still just long enough to snap a great photo of the two of them and that's all that matters-
This may have been the best photo op yet! And it may just make our Christmas card, so look out!

As the days grow cold...

We have been enjoying some crisp fall days around here and the mornings remind us that winter is just around the corner. Skylar is gearing up to turn one at the end of November and has learned so many new things these past few months. She is starting to talk-her first word was "bear" and she has since added "uh-oh" and "wow" to her vocabulary. She is pointing out everything wanting to know what it is and has taken a few "first steps" from Mommy to Daddy and back. She loves walking around the house with her car and must constantly be in motion-the law of physics is with her always!!!

Morgan is breaking in the "2's" in style-defiant and bossy! I really should not complain-her worst day is still better than some toddlers on their best days-of course no one we know :) She is wondering where Santa is and when he is going to bring her a kitchen...really sparking an interest in cooking and other household duties. No complaints from Mommy.
We have put out our fall decor inside and out and the season of thanks is upon us. A time to reflect on the past year and the fond memories we have added to our lives. We have had so many great moments with family and friends and we are so thankful for all of the people in our lives. To all of you-we love you and thank you for blessing our lives with your love and laughter-HOLLA!

A Trip to the Denver Zoo

We had a great time last weekend (yes I am finally getting around to posting) at the Denver Zoo. It was a quick trip and the girls were exhausted by lunch but we saw so many fun things! And there were not too many people there so it was great. Morgan and Skylar got to see a bunch of animals! They loved watching the penguins dive into the water, the orangatans swing from their ropes and the gorilla came right up to the fence to say "hi" to us! Morgan really loved that! Here are a few shots from the fun day-
This is the latest with Morgan. You ask her to smile and she gives you the half-er! Just like her daddy! More and more every day!

Morgan was tickling Skylar to get her to smile-they are so funny!

Tutu and Morgan on board the Denver Zoo Railroad-All Aboard!

And here are a couple shots of some of the cool animals we saw-
