Two of my good friends have taken on "Project 365" and have inspired me to do the same. Basically, the goal is to take one picture everyday for a year and to post the picture along with a brief description. It's been quite interesting and entertaining to follow these women's adventures and while I don't anticipate my posts to be as exciting as a new college grad or someone studying/traveling in Europe, I thought this would be a unique way to document the first year of the littles' lives. I can just about guarantee that this blog will not be updated daily and perhaps not even weekly, but I'll give it my best effort to post on a regular basis. My hope is that this will be a popular site for the grandparents, godparents, aunties, uncles, cousins, and friends of the littles and that this can be a fun way to watch them grow.

*November, 2011* We made it through the year, and I thought perhaps I'd try to redesign the blog for the future, intermittent updates. But, this twin mom is going to keep it simple and just keep going. Do not expect daily photos; we'll just post highlights from now on. Enjoy.

Monkeys jumping on the couch

October 27, 2011

After a few days of letting them test out the waters, we've given in and have given Josie and Noah free access to the couch. Despite several bonked heads, I think they like the change.

October 31, 2011
After visiting with Sue Silvester and trick-or-treating at PHS, Tinkerbell and Peter Pan had a nice evening handing out candy to the local kids. Thankfully for us, they slept right through all those who showed up after their bedtime.

Baby Blessing

October 29, 2011

We all headed to Berkeley for Josie and Noah's new cousin's baby blessing, but not before a photo shoot (and not before Josie gave me the stink-eye...ummm, clearly I'm in trouble).

Let's take a ride

October 27, 2011
Josie and Noah shared their wagon with their friend Valerie and they all let out some energy at the local park.

Uncles and Aunts Visit

October 25, 2011
Uncle Mel, Uncle John and Aunt Helene all dropped in on us today for a visit.

Fall Festivities

October 2011
We're so blessed to live in beautiful Sonoma County and we took advantage of many of the fall festivities. Below are pictures from the Petaluma Adobe Pumpkin Patch, Tolay Fall Festival, and a local ranch.

(Noah developed a fear of sheep at this very moment. As we were taking this photo, the sheep all began to "baaahhh!" loudly from behind him. Days later, when I would "bah" he'd still come running to me. I know, that seems mean, but it was tough (and funny) love. And he is no longer afraid of sheep.)
