Happy Halloween everyone! The girls had a great day. They got a ton of candy and I can't believe how many houses they went to! Peyton only trick or treated at a couple, she wasn't that into it this year. I can't wait til next year, then all three of them will be so much fun! Here's some (or a lot) of pics...the first is Riley at her school parade this morning. The rest are from tonight.

Here's a video of the girls from tonight before we went out posing for pictures!

Beach, Trains and Pumpkins...

Here are a couple of pics from the beach two weeks ago...hard to believe it was so hot that day and today it was a record low...although I heard it's snowing in New Jersey, so I guess it's not that bad!

We went to Laynie's friend Nina's birthday party last weekend, it was at a park with a train that took the kids (and parents) on a ride. It was pretty cool, Laynie loved it! Of course, Riley and Peyton wouldn't go on it.
This is Laynie on the train with her friends Lennon and Mikayla.
We carved pumpkins tonight! I told Peyton to look in the pumpkin, she wasn't impressed! She kept yelling at it.

Not Much to Report

There's not much new here, but I do have some new pictures to share! Laynie lost her first two teeth (in the dentists chair, poor thing) a couple weeks ago. She was very excited for the tooth fairy to come! Hopefully the next ones come out on their own. She is doing great in school, as is Riley. Peyton had her 18 month checkup...she is at the 50th percentile for her height and head circumference on the achondroplasia chart, and the Doctor was pleased with her development. She does need to start talking more, but she is stubborn and just gives you her little look when you try to make her. We aren't worried, Riley was a late talker, but it would be nice to know what she wants! The girls are excited for Halloween, I'm just praying it cools off by then! It is so hot still...I'm just over it. I'll have to start posting more often, as I'm sure there are a ton of things I'm forgetting about! Until then, enjoy the pictures!
