Below: Halloween night a few days later...I had to dress up for work too, so I borrowed this costume the girls had been given by our neighbour, it's too big for them anyway! They had their nanny Sarah with them that afternoon, and when I got home she had them all ready to go! They had decided at the last minute to be: Greta, the Ice Cream Princess, and Therese, the Flower Fairy/Princess. They were totally ready to go when I got home, but had to endure some waiting, including this photo shoot before we left for trick-or-treating (Matthew had a class that night so I had to go solo!)
No one cried this year! The fireworks (or "thunderworks", as Therese calls them...oh, and another Therese-ism is "rainbrella" for umbrella!) did not scare us away. Therese finished before Greta and decided to just sit in the stroller and watch big sister get more candy, but she was fine with this. Greta persevered for a few more houses, and then made it clear she was ready to go home. When we got back home they ate several pieces of candy and Greta promptly had a sugar crash (fell asleep before I could even read her stories!) while Therese tossed and turned on a sugar high for quite awhile!
Next is a random photo of chef TT, with her play food. Lately she is really into playing with her toy tomato, who she calls "Bob" (from a kid's show) and "Larry" the cucumber, in addition to her "funny gourd" from Thanksgiving. They talk (she gives them deep voices), she talks to them, she bathes them in the sink, she puts hair things around them, they sleep with her, etc etc. They are "my guys!" as she calls them...she's a funny one!
