My handsome Joe with the girls. He's sporting a killer suit coat that we found at DI for $12. He said he wanted one to hold candy in for Church. He He. Reminded me of Moose
Amelia at her first kindergarten performance. She did the Chicken dance, and Grandma Connie and Grandpa Rob were there too.
Amelia had been wanting to try a coconut for weeks when we finally got her one. She asked to have a hole in it and then put a straw in. Her reaction to the actual coconut water was great, she spit it out everywhere. Oh, disappointments.
What Jane and I do while Amelia is at school
The girls wanted to do a booney pic. Of course we obliged.

Jane was very excited. This is her second costume of the day. She rotated a between being a princess and a ballerina. Thanks to Charlotte for donating!
For Punjab: I called this the third position. I have no idea if it's correct.
Jane explaining the rules of trick or treating to Amelia. She's very much the boss at our house.
I told Amelia to make a monkey face and this is what she came up with.
My two babies. Notice how the height difference is diminishing? Amelia has Gubler genes and Jane has Wilson genes.

This is a picture of our little (not so little anymore) six year old. She just barely lost her first tooth. It was so loose that inhaling and exhaling made it move.
I snapped a pic of myself with the celebrity and I'm not sure why she's doing a peace sign.
You can see that the permanent tooth was already up. She had two rows of teeth for awhile.... like a shark.
Other recent happenings: Jane has been saying "hallelujiah Ballelujiah: about 1,000 times per day. She says it with her eyes closed and while she's dancing around. I asked her what it means recently and she said "it means dancing". She's the most original/weird kid ever. Joe and I are still boring in comparison with the kids.

My Christmas girls. I love dressing them in their Christmas clothes.
Our kids are mostly toys to us
This is such a good representation of Jane's inner self. Serene and a little weird.
This is an awesome story. Amelia woke up and said, "I need to earn some money to buy things". So she decided to make a lemonade stand. (Yes, it's november) Joe was SO supportive. He made her that little stand, helped her with the koolaid, got her all situated, then sat back and watched with me. Amelia is NOT afraid of people. To any and all passerby-s , she's holler "I have lemonade per you! It's 9 dollars!!!" We let her set her own price :) Our obliging neighbors came and bought some at a reasonable rate and Amelia ended her 45 minute work day with $5.50. She even learned about tithing, but in all honesty, I was more excited for her to learn about capitalism.
Mud mud everywhere.

team amelia and mom
team dad and jane
Amelia and Mom's pumpkin
jane ready to go trick or treating. The gloves make her fingers look unnaturally long
Amelia the monkey
And not to ruin it for next year... but all costumes were 50% off so we got stocked up. Jane is plum pudding from strawberry shortcake and Amelia is a devil, but if you ask her she'll refer to herself as the 'girl vampire'. She'll be wearing a shirt underneath this little number so it doesn't look like lingerie :)
