We're THREE!!!



I'm a week late with this post, but hey, they're still 3! We had a Curious George B-day party for Colin & Ava, and they had 5 little friends celebrate with them! They got 3 candles each on the cake and lo and behold, they both blew 'em all out with one puff! They are certainly little people now! Favorite phrase: "I do it all by myself!" And if I help, a tantrum ensues. Fine, walk with your shoes on the wrong feet! : )

Halloween in November



Due to the October Nor'easter, many towns had to delay their Trick-or-Treating -- ours was pushed to Friday! Our neighborhood has some steep driveways, so we only made it to 5 houses with the twins, but that was plenty for them! Plus, they took great pleasure from handing out candy "to all their friends!" Note to friends and family: never give my kids more than 2 pieces of candy in one day. Colin's feet weren't even touching the ground as he ran around the living room bouncing off the furniture. Thanks. : )

Snow? In October?



And that inch of snow was nothing compared to what is to come this evening -- a Nor'easter folks! Obviously, the kids don't mind the snow, and neither do we. However, since most of or trees here in Charlton still have their leaves, all that snow may mean downed trees which = down power lines = no water. But let's not think of that! Michael is off buying wood for the fireplace so we'll at least have heat in the event of an outage!

Yesterday, I showed the twins how to make pine cone bird feeders which we hung on some skinny branches so that hopefully the squirrels wouldn't get them. Unfortunately, the squirrels out here are, well, squirrely. They broke those branches and probably fell to the ground, but they still made off with the loot!

Nature Walk



What happened to the summer, huh? Was July it? The only time with real pool weather? I just don't get it!! So instead of hitting the pool, we hit the trails over at Westville Recreation Area so the kids could wear themselves out!


What's wrong Colin? You don't want to go on a nature walk?


Oh, that's better!


Sitting with Daddy to rest a bit -- it's a LONG trail!


up to the dam

Summer in Caribou



We recently headed up to northern Maine for my 20 year high school reunion -- ack! The best part is that the twins got to spend time with Memere & Pepere and Michael and I were able to do some fly-fishing. Another plus was that the Northern Maine Fair was up and running in Presque Isle so the kids got to visit with tons of farm animals!
