Two Peas in a Pod

Katie and Jon are holding Olivia and Clara. Jeremy had to work but he decorated and carved pumpkins before he left.

Some very special trick-or-treaters
Trying to pick up a toy the hard way

Olivia is happy to take a walk
Clara looks like she is saying,"not another game."
Olivia is a die hard Giants fan. We'll get them next year.

A single pod

Off for a walk
Quote of the Day:
Lives are snowflakes-forming patterns we have seen before, as like one another as peas in a pod (and have you ever looked at peas in a pod? I mean really looked at them) There's not a chance you'd mistake one for another, after one minute close in.

just hanging out

Clara loves to sleep and takes long naps. Olivia thinks a little cat nap is just fine. They certainly are developing very distinct personalities. It is so fun to watch.

It is a happy talent to know how to play.

New Attitudes

It is good to see our happy (or at least not crying) girls, again. Pops said he hates the crying pictures-it makes him want to get in the car and drive to Fresno and pick them up and rock them. (Me, too.)

The Crying Game

The 'Too tired' blues.
Quote of the Day:
Mama said there'll be days like this,
There'll be days like this, my mama said.

Uncle Jon and Clara enjoying the Sharks game.
They are both turning from stomach to back.
Olivia, after she turned over, looks a little shocked about how she got there.
Olivia enjoying a snack!
This is not a posed picture, that is how they fell asleep.
(notice their crossed legs)
Quote of the Day:
Mothers touch your children,
Fathers hug them tight.
Let them know you love them
Morning, noon and night.

Saturday Shopping

Katie, Jeremy, Olivia and Clara went out shopping, making many stops including Target and the bank. It doesn't sound like such a big deal but it is-a lot of planning and timing go into the adventure. They were quite the hit in their snazzy little outfits. Number one question was: Are they twins? Many women said they wanted to have twins-of course they were women who haven't had children yet or spent an afternoon with a set of twins. We love our twins with all our hearts.
Quote of the Day:
Everybody needs God's blessings.

Sweet Dreams are made of this

As you can tell by the drool trail, this is Clara.

This is Olivia"I told you I am not tired" Hoff.
