Pumpkins and punkins...

We hope everyone had a very happy Halloween! We had a good time dressing up the girls and celebrating a holiday devoted to candy:) Anyway, those of you who have had the pleasure of meeting my husband know that he is a big kid at heart. So, we carved our jack-o-lantern after one of his favorite cartoon characters--Aang from "The Avatar."(Which is a really entertaining show if you are looking for a new, clean series to watch:)



We also put up these scary silhouettes that mom brought us-- I know what you're thinking...'terrifying'...:) What makes them special is that my mom has had these same silhouettes up in her kitchen window during Halloween ever since I was a wee trick-or-treater. Lindsey found the exact same ones, and bought them for me. It was fun to relive that little memory...
These cute buckets were given to the girls by the hospital's parent support group. They are so sweet... they leave fun little treats for us and the girls every week!
Here they are! The picture you have all been waiting for! Our little punkins...while Mom was here she found these cute Halloween onesies. As you can see, the girls did a brilliant job of making them look simply adorable--the nurses were commenting on our very cute pumpkin and ghost all day:)


Matilda & Avery
Mmmm... yummy girls. Here we are giving them a kiss goodnight before putting them back in bed:)
Goodnight girls! Jordan and I spent the rest of the evening eating candy, visiting Uncle Nate and Aunt Jai's spooky house, and watching Young Frankenstein. It was a fun holiday for us--very low key... I have a feeling we should appreciate it now while the girls are small and don't care what their costumes look like and how much candy they get:)

wow, jordan and tim should have a pumpkin carve-off. tim's already looking for ideas for next year and we had to get him a deluxe carving kit. um, the girls looked A-dorable. though i agree you should have just gotten two pumpkin onesies. you guys would have gotten so much candy for yourselves if you could have taken the cuties trick-or-treating!

WOW!! So dang cute! And mad props on the Avatar pumpkin! Leah said, "Oh Gol!" when I showed her the picture.. but if I would have remembered about the Avatar this Holloween, I am sure I would have Appa or Momo to go with your Avatar!

Dang you've got some "keyute" girls!
I wish I was there to pinch/punt their cheeks/heads(not literally).

Jordan's pumpkin is pretty sweet.
I was thinking about getting all of the avatar seasons and having a marathon all the way through,

But that'd be kinda nerdy :/
maybe i'll bring my big tv out and we'll watch it on that...

Jordan isn't invited...
Then it'll be TOO nerdy.

Happy hall-o-ween!

Jensen said...

Pardon my 3-day-late happy Halloween.

love, Jensen

Jordan, what's your email address? Mine is stephendashton(at)gmail(dot)com. I wanted to send you some information about an OHS friends get together on November 14.

Thanks,
Stephen

P.S. Great pictures by the way. Matilda and Avery are beautiful little girls!

I thought we were the only adults on earth nerdy enough to watch Avatar! So good to know there are others. Brian and I are bummed that it's over. We used to call our Henry Appa because when he was little he was so slow and smiley. Anyway...

The girls look so cute in their onesies! They are getting so big! Do you know when they will be allowed to go home?
