Family Pictures 2014

It was freezing the day we took family pictures this year.  On top of that, we all had colds and the twins were super fussy.  I wasn't expecting to get any usable pictures, so I was shocked when our photographer Courtney pulled off a bunch of great ones!!  Here are a few of my favorites....

I really love how this one captures Elson's silly spirit!

Halloween Bash 2014

As always, we had our annual Halloween Bash with most of friends in attendance.  This year, at my suggestion, the twins dressed up as Peter Pan and Wendy.  I'm afraid this will be the last year of my influence over their costumes.  Emily wore an Elsa dress under her Wendy costume and Elson wore a superhero shirt under his Peter Pan costume.  Both kids were really into the trick-or-treating aspect of Halloween this year.  Although not as many of our neighbors participated as in the past, it was still a good time and the twins got way too much candy (most of which has been hidden and will come out for bribery purposes).

This picture is obviously from earlier in the day :)

Pumpkin Patch Fun 2014

We went on our annual trip out to a pumpkin patch, but this year we went to a real, legit, growing from the vines pumpkin patch.  It was soooo much fun.  They had a bunch of other activities for the kiddos.  Elson said his favorite part was racing ducks down the water spout and Emily said her favorite part was the hay ride.  My favorite part was watching the kids chase chickens....these truly are some country babies!!

2014 Red River Revel

Just like last year, the twins had a blast at this year's Red River Revel.  There favorite activities were once again the geological digging and the grocery shopping.  They also really loved the Shreveport Library booth this year. 

She was so tired after all that playing, she had to get a ride from Dad back to the car.
