Halloween

The day started off business as usual...Mommy to work before dawn and daddy got the kids ready early because Ginger had to come on Friday this week. Mame came right after Ginge showed up and daddy brought out the new addition to therapy. The trampoline! Ot was loved by all today. Jumping and more jumping and everyone was happy. I got home just as they were finishing up lunch. Amy helped me get everyone ready and loaded up as daddy was arriving home from work and we were off to the races, oops I mean trick or treating, if you could call it that. Our first stop was Walgreens to see Aunt Tammy. Then we went to see Connie and then it was off....
to see Ginger at her feeding clinic. Ginger is one of our OT. She was so glad to see us and took us treating at the offices in her building. Nate caught on real quick as to you put your hand in and you pull out "OH, something to eat!"
I had one pigie and daddy had caught the "bad pigies" that had ran off.
I took this picture on Wednesday when we were trying out our costume see if they liked them. I think it is the best shot of everyone together.
We stoped at Aunt Terrie's and got to see our cousins Tessa and...

Zoe...and a couple others I don't have pictures of...
Our next stop was to grandma and grandpa's (Donnie's mom and dad).

Then we went to see mamaw at work (my step mom) papaw was at work and it was to far out to try to make that stop also. By this time they were screaming as I put them back in their car seat.
We got home and Connie had made dinner and our cousins from mommies side of the family came to trick or treat with us in our neighbor hood.
This was waiting with great patients to get out the door. I ran outside to get them looking out just before we left the house. I knew we would not be gone for long for several reasons, the main one being three tired 21 month olds.
This was our first Official house... Every house we went to said "Oh it is the triplets!"
These are Jordan's jack o lanterns. She lives on our street and loves to play with us on our evening walks.
On our journey we meet Spider Man...aka Dylan. Dylan is Tom and Brandi's son and Tom...
is Miss Alli's godfather...Oh and daddy's friend.
Aunt Tammy was on our walk all ready with us but she is also Miss Emma's godmother...
Once we were back home we sat on the floor to see all the loot we had collected. Some of it was gifts from Aunt Tammy and Aunt Connie. Donnie and I both have siblings but some of our really close friends have become aunts and uncles to us. I remember when I was growing up we all had "mom's and dad's or aunt's and uncle's that was just inherited through friends and neighbors and these kiddos are no different.
They all made out like little bandits and was so into seeing what they had gotten. Darma is another one of the little girls on the street and they picked out the little duckies you see in Nate's hands...
I must say Alli was the most thrilled with what she got. One by one she took everything out of her basket to look at and did not want any help from us and especially not Nate who was sitting next to her. I saw her reach for Nate and he had picked up something she had laid out of her goodies and she took it back and said "no that Alli's."
They all tasted their suckers they are eating in these pictures with the paper on so they got to try them out with no paper also...
They all did really well the main problem was that no one liked the sticky part! They would lick and slobber and then want their hands washed. It was too cute! Nate would with a big sad look say "stickie" and want it off now...
Alli did great and could not wait to get in her chair when I asked if they wanted a bite.
After the suckers they were in great need of a bath and Amy, Nicholas, Katlyn and her friend Paige came just in the nick of time to help us take really fast baths. It was in and out and diapered and brushed (brushing is the treatment we are doing for all babies due to sensory issues) and lotioned and jamies (our pumpkin jamies from Children's Place for 2.50) on in record time. Then it was off to discover more loot! Aunt Amy and the kids brought us more goodies.
Amy is Nate's godmother.

and Connie is Alli's. We didn't to bad we only didn't see two our of six godparents. All in all we had a great day and evening. Happy Halloween!
