I have mentioned before how baffled I am at the fact that no one in my neighborhood ever goes outside. It's a relatively new neighborhood and almost every house has kids. Every time Greta and I walk the babies its like a science fiction movie where everyone suddenly vanished. Tonight was no different. I set up to scare the trick or treators with decorations and a stereo system in the yard and we got only 3 groups of kids. It's not how I remember it as a kid, do children trick or treat anymore? Are their parents too protective to let them outside? Are they too fat to walk around for their candy? Do they trick or treat online in 'Second Life'? I really hope this is isolated to my neighborhood and that other ones are bustling with little children everywhere screaming and having fun. Anyway, with everything that is going on Greta did manage to get the trio dressed up for a photo shoot. Lukas is on top, Gabbie is in the middle and Niklas is on the bottom.
In other news, Gabbie has cut her first two teeth on the bottom. The babies are progressing more and more into the toddler phase every day and are becoming more fun all of the time. I do, however, need to get in shape again if I am going to keep up with these guys. They are getting heavier and more active with each day that passes. They are going to wear mom and dad out.
