It has been a very busy month. October always is with my two birthday girls. My mom bought a new toy that we are loving! A compact tractor. It is really nice and fun too, we can't wait to use it on our jungle at the house. My mom took the girls on their first yard sale trip. They took their birthday money from grand-mama and it was so fun to see them negotiate with everyone. It was fun to see how quickly Sienne was catching on. Keah still needs a bit of a push to do it, she kept asking her sister or oma to do it for her but eventually she will get there. Yesterday we went to a childrens' festival and spent 5 hours there. It was so fun and Zalynn is ready for the crazy rides that shake and swing you back and forth. Whatever her sisters do, she is right there with them no fear! Earlier in the month Sienne fell on the concrete and chipped her tooth. Our insurance sucks, so luckily they have a clinic we went to and it won't kill us financially to get her chip fixed. She isn't so sensitive about it anymore so now we can call her those funny toothless names and she just laughs. I cooked artichokes for the girls and that was Bryan's first artichoke experience. He actually likes it so I was impressed. All in all everything is going well. I painted my 'crazy' room in the house, it was supposed to be gold but Bryan calls it a baby poop room and that fits the description better. It is pretty funny to see the facial expressions when they walk into the room. I should put up a web cam.

We had a wonderful sailing trip/ camping weekend with our friends Geoff and Caroline. The girls loved the camping and being able to swim off of the sailing boat. I had never been to this park (Dreher Island in Columbia) so it was a nice adventure. The next weekend we went to Bryan's mom's yearly party. Sienne was really in to the games the kids were playing. Keah and Sienne are celebrating their birthdays this month and of course we are still moving forward on the house. Things are really going well.
