Flashback Friday - 1st Halloween - Brina the Bee and Karlie the Flower (Oct. 2005 - 8 Months)c

 We have a cute little Brina Bumblebee and a pretty Karlie Flower

Today we Flashback to October 2005 when the girls were eight months old and celebrating their first Halloween!  They were good sports with the Halloween costumes.  We really didn’t go “trick or treating” instead we just stopped by to say “hello” to some family in the area that evening.  The kids had a lot of fun playing and hanging out a little bit with family.

Our 1st Pumpkin - Karlie and Brina (Oct. 2005 - 8 Months)c

 So proud of their pumpkin!

Today’s Flashback Friday goes back 10 years when the girls went to their first pumpkin patch.  They were so excited to check out the pumpkins.  They didn’t like the feel of the prickly hay and grass on their feet, but were fascinated by the pumpkin and it’s stem.

Flashback Friday - Brina reaching for Rachel's cakec

 Brina trying to steal a piece of Rachel’s birthday cake!

Today’s Flashback Friday goes back to September 2005 when the girls were eight months old.  We celebrated my brother Lee’s birthday with several of our cousins who were still going to college in town.  The girls learned how hold their bottles on their own.  They loved being silly and playing together.  They could easily make each other laugh.

Morning bottles - Brina and Karliec

This was a big moment for them.  They officially can hold their own bottles.  It was an exciting and sad day for Mommy.  I was glad they could do it and it saved me a lot of extra time, but I did miss some of the morning snuggles with them.    I was able to squeeze in plenty throughout the day though.

Karlie really enjoying the book Guess How Much I Love Youc

Daddy and Karlie reading a book together.  Karlie LOVED reading books!

Flashback Friday - Brina and Karlie watching Daddy, he just brought out the trainc

Watching Daddy bring in a train toy!  What is it!?  Looks like fun!

Today’s Flashback Friday goes back to when the girls were 8 months old.  They would get so excited to play with various toys.  If you pulled out a new toy that they haven’t seen before they would eagerly check it out.  The hard part was when both wanted to play with it at the same time.  They were pretty good at sharing back and forth with only a few exceptions at this point.  If one would take a toy away the other one would just play with another one, no big deal.

Choo, choo, here comes the train - Brina and Karliec

Fascinated by the moving and musical Mickey Mouse train – Karlie and Brina.

Isn't life just GRAND - Brina and Karliec

Goofy girls – Brina and Karlie

Flashback Friday - Karlie being silly with her shirtc

Karlie loved to “talk” with you as you changed her clothes.  Her little babbling and smiles were so cute.

They could play no more, but they are still clutching the toys they were playing with - Karlie and Brinac

We have one thumb sucker (Karlie) and one two finger sucker (Brina)….oh boy.  At first we thought it was “cute” until it was time to break them of it.  You can take away a pacifier, but it is a little more difficult with fingers…

Flashback Friday - Brina - oh my Dargo what big teeth you havec

“Dargo what big nose and teeth you have!” – Brina

Dargo and Brina face off as Karlie provides a head rest for Dargoc

Dargo thought Karlie’s belly was the perfect chin rest.  He was so gentle with the girls.  They could do anything to him and he would just lay there enjoying the attention.  He was a big black lab, but was so sweet with the girls.

Karlie gets sleepy as Brina and Dargo continue to playc

Karlie more interested in relaxing, but Brina wants to talk and play with Dargo

Karlie proud of her stashc

Where are my Oreos?!  Sneaky Karlie….  She had no idea it was food and was more interested in the crinkling of the container.

Flashback Friday - Brina looking prettyc

I wonder who has been watching Brina…..  Daddy put the stickers on her face and it didn’t bother her at all.

Karlie and Brina with address label stickersc

My sweet babies, Brina and Karlie, playing away and totally ok with the stickers on their faces.  Don’t worry we didn’t leave them on long.  They weren’t easily upset by that type of stuff.

Happy Karliec

Happy Karlie Kool Kat

Karlie enjoying her toy and Brina smiling at herc

They loved any toys that made noise.  It was hilarious when they discovered it made noise for the first time.  They both stop and stare at it confused by the noise. Karlie proud of her noise making skills and Brina watching.

Flashback Friday - Brina waiting for her fishing teasure at the George's Creek Fall Festivalc

Their 1st local Fall Festival.  They were fascinating just watching all the activities around them.  Karlie got a flower and Brina got a butterfly painted on their face.  They did much better with this face painting session.

Karlie won a pumpkin door prize and Brina instantly stole it from hercc

Karlie won a stuffed pumpkin door prize.  As soon as they handed it to her Brina immediately swiped it to investigate it further.  Karlie didn’t care she was having fun.

Flashback Friday - Awful lot of talking and moving for quiet nap time - Karlie and Brinac

Two little critters, Karlie and Brina, who are talking, laughing, and giggling when it is suppose to be nap time.

Today’s Flashback Friday goes back on October 2005 when the girls were 8 months old.  They have started babbling a lot more and discovered that they could get our attention when they shriek.  Brina especially had a shrill screech she would make followed by lots of giggles.  The first time she did it she surprised herself so of course she decided to just do it more.

They are happy babies.  We tried to do some fun Fall activities with them this year.  They didn’t understand everything we were doing, but were always up for an adventure.  They were my little cuddle bugs.  Love my sweet girls.

We love our books - oh yeah - Karlie and Brinac

 Karlie and Brina very excited about the cool John Deere books Daddy brought home for them!
