Third day in a row of baking with Baba. We are the proud owners of a well decorated gingerbread house, a good number of cookies and now a batch of cupcakes.

Prima Ballerina and the Prosciutto Eater

The views are really small, but if you click on the actual movie once it's playing, it will take you to the Flickr site where they are bigger.

Trains/Botanical Garden...

Every year during the Christmas season, we take the kids down to the Botanical Gardens to see the Christmas trains exhibit. This year, Maya was more interested in the flowers and plants and Zoe just wanted to be carried. But given that it's not even December yet, we may give it another try on a less crowded day...

Maya and Zoe loved playing in the back yard yesterday and helping Peter clear out the leaves. Ajax enjoyed being outside as well, but was slightly less helpful.

Side by Side Monkeys

I couldn't resist posting you think they look alike??

Halloween Trick or Treating

Ahh, the culmination of about a gazillion Halloween events--trick or treating! Maya and Zoe had a great time. Of course, Zoe got the hang of it really quickly and while she couldn't say "Trick or Treat" she did say "bye!" to everyone. Both of the girls made out like bandits and considering we have a huge bowl of candy and have only had a few trick or treaters, I think we'll have enough to get us through until next Halloween!

Ready to go out:

I think if you go back 3 years, we have the same exact picture, but without a butterfly:
