We go to the park almost every day. Here is a pic of us eating our snack. Daddy took us to the park because Mommy was working that day and Gianna was at school.

Halloween was pretty uneventful for us. Mommy didn't want to keep us up past our bedtime to go trick-or-treating. But she promised we could go next year so we are holding her to it!! Gianna had a Harvest Parade at her preschool and dressed up as Belle. She has a blast walking around the courtyard to different classrooms to get goodies and treats! It was Gabby's turn to go out, so mommy brought her in a Halloween Hello Kitty shirt, but mommy forgot to get a picture of her :(.
Gianna also had a blast playing soccer this past fall for the first time. Daddy was confused as to why Gianna kept encouraging everyone to take their turn with the soccer ball instead of trying to get it in the goal herself. But by the end of the season, she got her goal in the last game. Mommy and Cooper cheered her on as she dribbled it from mid-field all the way to the goal and finished strong! As promised, if she had made a goal, we went for ice cream after the game =) Way to go Team Turbo!!

As the days started to
get cooler, Riley and Cooper started asking to wear their winter hats around the house. Here are a couple of pics of these two little cuties!
Against Mommy's wishes, we decided that WE wanted to start potty training! We don't know why Mommy is having a hard time with this concept. She helped Lola (our Mom's mom) potty train Gianna when she was on strict bedrest with us. So what's the big deal? Why can't we ALL use the potty at the same time? It's really hard for us when someone beats us to the potty and we have to wait til one frees up. We usually have already "gone" by the time we sit down. HOWEVER, Mommy is very proud that we all have gone on the potty at least a few times. Not consistently, but we make it to the potty every once in awhile. We think it's mostly because there are Skittles involved if we go "pee pee in the potty". We think we should be rewarded just for trying and give Mommy a REALLY hard time if we try and there is no candy.

We finally went to see our Dr for our 2yr check up earlier this month. Mommy made our 3yr check up for Sept next year so that we are back on track! Gianna came with us for moral support (and her flu shot.) Mommy gave us all lollipops prior to getting into the exam room so that we'd take our annual picture without crying. Addy didn't want to be there even with a lollipop and therefore let everyone know how she really felt about the outing.
