Bea and Maggie’s Baptism

We baptized Bea and Maggie this afternoon at our local parish.  Both sets of godparents live out of town.  We missed them but know they were with us in spirit.  We are 5/5 for babies sleeping through their baptisms.  Both babies slept through the entire thing.  It was a really nice ceremony and everything went smoothly.  We are now home relaxing and enjoying our sweet-smelling babies.

Happy Due Date!

Today is my official due date.  Maggie and Bea are 3 weeks and 4 days old.  Time is flying.  I can’t believe they will be one month on Sunday!

Pumpkin Patch 2013

After an unsuccessful attempt on Saturday due to weather, we made a second drive out to Dewberry Farm on Sunday.  Whoa, it was crowded.  I definitely prefer to go around the holidays to get a Christmas tree, not nearly as crazy.  We did have fun, even with the crowds.  We spent quite a bit of time in the corn maze, picked out some pumpkins, and then the kids played on some of the stuff while George paid for the pumpkins and I fed babies and changed diapers.
