Halloween Pics....

Happy Halloween Everyone. The Pate Brood had a good time....ate WAY TOO MUCH candy, enjoyed fabulous fun at festivals, trunk-or-treat get togethers at church and visited some family and friends for trick-or-treating. I feel like this Halloween has lasted for three days, oh wait a HAS lasted for three days....I think our family is going on a detox from candy starting tomorrow morning..

Miracle Babies are now DEFIANT TODDLERS...and Im SO thankful!

This video sums up what we are now dealing with on a daily basis around here...DOUBLE dose of two year old tantrums and defiance...and honestly...I couldn't be happier...Seriously, I am so grateful for these boys and their physical health as well has their cognitive health. It does seem to take them a little longer to "catch on" than what I remember with the girls, but that is totally fine with me...they are probably going to be a tad bit spoilt anyway...I am extremely thankful for Joan Brock and Jenn Goode who spend each day teaching and loving these guys. Some new recent words they have learned this week in school...'yellow', 'blue', 'brown', 'football', 'at at for cat' 'yes mam', 'lemur'(think Claire taught them this one), 'A,B,C,D' and something that sounds like mee maw..but I haven't figured out what it actually means...hahaha!

Here is the video of a typical evening of communicating with the boys!
