Happy Halloween – the twins' first experience with costumes!

Oh, do I LOVE Halloween! Before the girls, I loved dressing myself up and attending fun parties with friends. I always knew if I had children, it would become one of our family’s favorite holidays!

I decided to dress the girls as a lamb and a piglet. You guessed it, Lily, aka the garbage disposal, was the piglet. As predicted, they both cried their hearts out when I put them into their getups. But did I feel bad about it? Absolutely not, it made me downright giggly and giddy. Is there anything better than exploiting the cuteness of your babies?!

Me, Melanie and Missy with Lily the piglet and Lucy the lamb!
 My parents and sisters came over to see this milestone event, and the sistahs and I took the babies trick or treating. Once we got outside to enjoy the balmy 60-degree weather, the girls were in their element! They enjoyed all the attention and wore their piggy and sheep heads with pride.

My family asked if Lucy’s PKU means she can’t have Halloween candy. Luckily, she’ll be able to have the non-chocolate candies, though I’m not sure this is necessarily a good thing. ;-) But at least she can participate in the time-honored tradition of trick or treating!
