Our first Halloween

This weekend was the babies' first Halloween. We planned to carve our pumpkins on Thursday night. In the past we always carve 2 pumpkins. Mark carves one and I carve the other. But when I came home from work on Thursday, between Mark and Grandma we had 5 pumpkins to carve. 2 big ones and 3 little pumpkins. Fitting for our family of 5. I came up with the brilliant plan to carve every one's name in a pumpkin. It was a lot of fun but a lot of work. They turned out really cute!

For Halloween, I opted not to dress the girls in costume. I may be a party pooper, but I thought it was a little silly to spend all that money on a costume for no one to see. We did however, dress the girls up in Halloween pajamas and a pumpkin bib. We sat out on our driveway and passed out candy. We drew quite a crowd in the neighborhood as many of our distant neighbors did not know we had triplets. It was fun watching all the kids trick or treat and seeing all the costumes. Then we took a short walk to our family friends, the Byrnes. They had special treats for the triplets. By the time we got home all of the girls we fast asleep in their stroller. Trick or treating is hard work. Enjoy the pictures from this weekend.
