Lions and Tigers and...

Happy Halloween! The boys have really enjoyed the Halloween festivities, so far. There has been so much to do and see and EAT here in Oxford!

They got their first taste of things to come when they opened up some fun mail from their Aunt Winnie. She sure has their number. She included candy, stickers and two homemade cards. We don't know if they are intellectuals, or what, but they liked the cards best of all!

On Thursday, the town hosts a big halloween parade of all the kids in costume. Despite their new-found freedom as walkers, Luke the Lion and Owen the Tiger decided stroll along the route.

Then on Friday, they visited Daddy's office for workplace trick or treating. Boy did they clean up!

Deciding that two heads are better than one, they overthrew Daddy, peeled off their hoods and got right to work.

After a hard day at the office, the boys kicked back for some fall fun.

Santa Claus is coming to town...early?

Really it was Gramma and Grampa who came to town this week, bearing big and small presents, lots of kisses and a real live furry animal. Despite the inclement weather, everyone had a blast - Gram taught Mommy to knit and Luke to walk! Gramp showed Mommy how to make delicious Liverglace (the boys loved it!) Owen entertained the crowd with his expert walking, and Daddy won over the in-laws with his homemade pie and special country ribs!

"Ah, nothing like kicking back in our warm snuggly PJs with our Gram and Gramp!"

Despite days of rain, Gram kept the boys fully entertained. Here they are riding the Gramma express.

When the weather finally broke (late one evening as you can see), the boys were thrilled to finally be able to get out and play on the new climbing cube sent by their awesome cousin Missy.

Each night ended in the usual way, with a bath and a party...

And a big hug for Gidget!

Let the PARTY begin!

Well, it's official - the boys sucked down their last bottle a few weeks ago. They were overheard discussing the matter in bed that night, "who needs a bottle, when you can have a PARTY."

Here they are enjoying the first of many "parties".

Kicking back with their new friend, Kai. (Despite the bars in the background, they were not forced to take this pic).

And the rivalry begins!

New Addition

Gosh, time flies. Haven't had a chance to post or take pics in a while. The boys are learning to walk, so we're pretty busy on this end. Anyway, here's a few. More soon, we promise.

The boys met their newest 2nd cousin, Savannah, recently. Isn't she adorable?

Farmer Luke?! Or is it Luke "Daniel" Boone?

Love is in the Air

The boys had a blast at their big cousin Danny's wedding.

Here they are hanging with the Bride and Groom.

And just chillin' with their cute 2nd cuz, Elise.

Woop, Woop, that's the sound of the police. After being spotted hanging out at the bar, they were "picked-up" by Officer Warren and his new fiance, Heidi. (Congrats guys!)

They were released into their parents' custody.

They spent the rest of the night, booging-down!

I don't know who was more worn out by all this dancing, the boys or Tommy?

It looks like, Owen, at least was wiped out by all the fun!
