Twin Love

Rhys woke up very cranky from her nap one day, and was insistent that she have her "nak" (snack) right away. I put her down so that I could get the snack ready, and she started crying.  Rhett was trying to kiss her and comfort her....too bad she was not interested in any twin love on this day!

"Punka" Patch

Halloween morning we headed out to the pumpkin patch.  Yep, that's right, we procrastinated going to the patch until the last possible day.  The kids were both tired, and not feeling well,  but we did make it after all, and when we pulled into the parking lot, Rhys started clapping and shouting "Punka! Punka! Punka!"  Here is what we did in the 10 minutes we stayed at the pumpkin patch...

When we first arrived, the kids were pointing at all the pumpkins and just running in circles.  Rhys continued to yell "punka" every few seconds, and Rhett kept calling the pumpkins "balls."  Almost like  a ball, buddy, almost.

We found a cute little set up of pumpkins and Rhys was all about it since they had a little chair for her to sit in.  (by the way, this is my favorite pic of the day!)

Rhett was so cute and kept trying to pick up all the "balls."  

Here Rhett is trying to pick one up while Rhys was looking for acorns.

Rhys was not in the mood to take pictures, because every time I tried to get her to smile, this is look she gave me.

She was beginning to melt down, and then they found the tractor...

Rhett was a little disappointed when he couldn't actually sit on the tractor and that the wheels didn't actually move.  Our pumpkin patch visit was quickly going downhill.

Then we came across the wagon that was there for people to transport their pumpkins to their cars.  Rhys decided she needed to go for a ride in that wagon, and of course she needed her "punka" to go with her.  I started pulling her around and Rhett thought he was pushing her.

What a sweet big brother to push his baby sister around!

We found another cute place for a picture and were thankful we had the wagon to contain them for a couple of seconds.

Before we left, I really wanted to get a picture of the twins sitting in the pumpkins, together, and both smiling.  Is that really too much to ask?  Apparently it is.

Started off not so bad, at least they were sitting still.

Then Rhys started asking for a snack.

Rhett was getting tired...

Rhys was DONE.

Check out Rhett's face in this one!  Not having anything to do with us anymore.

Oh well, maybe next year, right?

Just for are a couple of pumpkin patch pictures from last year.
