Weekly Wrap-up: The Rest of October...

So I think I keep saying that soon I will be better at blogging regularly... but the truth is we are into the second week of November and I am just now catching up on the rest of October. And unfortunately I don't see things slowing down since we are about to leave for a trip to Thailand and we found out we have to move to another house in Baku and my mom will be visiting us (YAY!).

So instead I just have to give myself grace and be thankful for the time that I do have to blog (even if I am catching up on things that happened awhile ago). :-)

We were lucky enough to attend another birthday party this month with an animator who did bubbles and balloons. This was the twins first time seeing the massive bubbles and both of them were in awe (especially Olivia). Now I know exactly what to do next June/July for our joint Stingerie Girls Birthday Bash. ;-)

We've had a lot of fun taking videos of the girls to remember their fun and joy. They love to play peek-a-boo with the curtains and Evy does a hilarious shuffle and waddle that we tried to capture on video along with the sweetest sister kisses at the end. ♥

The second half of the month went by in a blur of our daily activities along with Dubai and Halloween. I should probably get started on a November update if I hope to finish before December hits - ha!

1. Madi enjoying a ride around the living room with Giant Hans.
2. Sometimes you are in a rush at the expensive grocery store downtown and don't realize you've just purchased the saddest $11 blueberries ever. They were not shared with our children.
3. Olivia enjoyed some one-on-one time with Mommy at baby swimming.
4. My first ever baked brie. It was a huge hit at Bible study and has been made a couple more times since then. Super easy and super delicious!
5. Probably my favorite picture of Madi and I in awhile. I am sporting my beloved Norwegian Marius sweater and Madi a matching sweatshirt before her tennis practice.
6. Rain = puddles = happy Norwegian-born girl :-)
7. Toddlers enjoying one of their daily walks outside.
8. Life is rough when you are a pre-schooler. So rough that you sometimes fall asleep in the middle of a good book. ;-)
9. Prim. For those who don't know what it is, here. Madi fell in love with it at barnehage and our final imported container ran out. I drew the short straw with Jason and had to be the one to break the news that it was gone and then explain a billion times why I can't just go to the store and get more. Then a friend blessed us with one additional container she had in her freezer so tune back in another few weeks for how we get on with round two of the heartbreak. HA!
