Halloween 2011

It hasn’t been all that long since I first observed the girls in pretend play. My first recollection is from our family vacation in June. On the drive home I was passing Cheerios to the girls in the backseat. It was snack time anyway, and by passing the Cheerios back one at a time I could keep them occupied longer during the drive. I noticed that one of the girls would give the Cheerio to her baby and say “nom nom” before consuming the Cheerio herself. Their pretend play has developed significantly since then. Now they wrap their babies in blankets and tuck them in, sing Rock-A-Bye Baby and read stories to baby, and put pretend bibs on themselfs to eat pretend food. Oh yeah, and they put on costumes!

Happy Halloween from Winnie the Pooh & Tigger Too!

Pounce!

Do you have a smackerel of honey?

Here's some honey!

Bouncin's what Tiggers do best!

We also made a trip to Joan’s Farm & Pumpkin Patch again this year. The girls love being outside anyway, and they certainly had fun running around and exploring. And yes, they pretty much ran everywhere. After all, why would anyone walk when running is an option?

Do you have any idea how hard it was to get BOTH of them to sit still at the same time and look anywhere near the camera?

Fun family outing

It's heavy, but she's strong.

Lift with your legs!

Of course, there was more than just pumpkins to explore.  Like sticks,

Stick!

and rocks,

How many rocks can I balance on top?

and leaves,

TWO leaves!

and animals,

What's this?

and dirt!

It's okay if you brush it off.

And the pumpkins were fun too.

A little help from Mommy

After a fun-filled day it was time to head home.

All in all a fun trip. Special thanks to Nana and Papa for joining us. Two active little girls, four adults, two still cameras and one video camera. Yep, that’s what it took to capture some of the moments to share with you.
