5 Months Old

Yes, they are growing so fast! Thomas loves to play with his feet and Lucy could spend hours in the Exersaucer. They are both very ticklish! Thomas has the cutest chubby cheeks and Lucy's chubby legs are just adorable!

Thomas is a fantastic little sleeper. I remember reading books when I had Lily. They always said to put your baby to bed when they were "drowsy" and not to feed them until they fully fell alseep, so that they could learn to fall asleep themselves. I remember thinking "ha! yeah, right! That will NEVER work with our Lily!" The second I would set her down slightly awake, she would go into a full blown scream. Well, you can put Thomas down fully awake. Just turn on his mobile and give him his binky and he will put himself to sleep. Little Lucy Lu needs a little more coaxing. I think she just loves to cuddle. Next on the list....solid food! This should be interesting!

While having twins brings more chaos, it definitely brings more sweetness, too!

My Little Box of Crayons

All four of my little crayons! Pictures with four are interesting. There's bound to be one crying, one not looking, one not smiling, etc. I've pondered what I will do for Christmas...get a cute individual shot of each child or take a shot of all four. It will surely be a comical scene.

Halloween was too fun. I love the way their costumes turned out. Lily got to trick or treat around the classrooms at Chatard. So fun! We all went to Nana's and Grandad's for dinner and then trick or treating. Bridget was just starting to "get it" by the end. She would run from house to house!

I entered the twins in 3 costume contests. They won 2 already and voting for the 3rd one starts today or tomorrow. I think people just love seeing two little ones together.

Brown County Wedding

Last weekend, Tyler and I travelled to Brown County for a wedding. The wedding was absolutely beautiful. We brought the twins and Aunt Katie and Uncle G watched the girls! Thanks!! The leaves were stunning and Tyler and I were able to take a little hike with the twins!

Pumpkin Patch

Just before Halloween we visited the Pumpkin Patch. It is THE cutest pumpkin patch.

The perfect pumpkin!

They have this little pumpking train. Lily, of course, loved to go on it. Bridget, of course, loved to stay in mom's arms and watch Lily ride it!

All six of us (do you see Lucy and Thomas on our backs?) on the hay ride to the pumpkin patch.

Have you heard of...

Endorse. It's an app on Facebook and if you're a Facebook user, it's well worth it. I read about it in The Indy Star and checked it out. I think I've written about trying to save a dime here and there. Hey, with four kids, you have to, right? Especially, when Catholic education is quickly approaching. And I know some of you who read my blog love a good deal, too! It looks like this is something relatively new, so I hope it sticks around.

Here are the basics:
1. Download the App
2. Invite Friends
3. Endorse products and stores (They have tons and I will list a few of my favs below)
4. Have friends join your endorsements (Don't forget to add me as a friend, I don't have any yet)
5. Send in your receipts from products or stores you endorsed (in a mailer they will send you) and get 10% back
6. They'll send you a check once you hit $25
7. You can even get products for free once you have friends endorse it!

Find out more here:

Here are my favorites:
Diet Coke-
Blue Moon-
Bed Bath and Beyond-

Now I just have to make sure Tyler saves his receipts. Can't wait to get my first check! woo hoo!


Soccer is officially over! Lily had a great time running up and down the field and giving a thumbs-up. She even got a little trophy with her name on it! Can't wait for next year!
