Yikes! I see this being a pattern… as the kids get older, I post less and less. Less time. Less picture taking as we are able to be more active together.
But when the pictures come, they’re worth the wait! And I’ve got Halloween pictures and a fun outing pics, and some from a birthday party they went to that were too adorable to ignore. So here we go:
That’s the Ninja Twins on Halloween. We went to a friends house, where the kids met two friends – Jacob had to trick or treat with his friend Asher, as they were both Ninja’s, and so Molly needed a buddy, and they had a great time.
Earlier in the day, they had their school parade. See if you can find the ninja and the princess (she had a costume change for school…).
I have to go back a weekend earlier, and share a couple of pictures from a birthday party of one of their close friends, because it was so darn cute. They had old fashioned games, like the egg race
And tug of war
Neither of which Mol wanted to take part in. But when it came to whacking things (for sugar), she was all in:
So was Jacob.
And one last pic, before I get to yesterday’s pictures. Jacob has been building up a storm lately. Molly had her first sleepover at someone elses house on Friday night. So Jacob got to be a spoiled only child, and we took him out for sushi and let him pick a movie to watch. Star Wars, Episode 2, of course. So then he built and photographed this amazing command bridge for the clones.
And then Molly came home and knocked it down.
Anyway, after that all happened, we went to this really cool cooking class in the kitchen with the executive chef at the Bel Air Hotel. It was amazing. Like really amazing. Here’s the kids, making pasta and apple pie. First, toques and aprons.
Then, cooking. Make the pasta dough:
Then knead it.
Then watch it go through the press.
Then you have to clean up (this shot is so you can see the amazing kitchen):
And we also strolled the grounds, and saw the swans.
Molly was far more into letting us take pictures of her.
Jacob let us take one.
Then he went into hiding.
And sometimes even her Mommy.
