I have been behind in posting pics....and we've had a bunch of picture-taking worthy opportunities!
So here's a smattering of photos and a few blips about life in the Jank house...
TG Farms in Norman on Halloween morning; highly recommend it for fall outdoor activities. Joined by Pollans and Stelzers, the kids had a blast running on the farm, sliding on the hay bale slides, following Emma through the corn maze, riding the hayride with friends and Nana and Pop, and petting the goats, bunnies, cows, and pigs!
Their cute little Halloween parties at day schools....
Mr. Cowboy sans cowboy hat (he just threw it across the room which is why he's laughing)
McFarlin Pumpkin Patch Annual Pics...
As of current, Matt is off crutches and weight bearing on his walking cast--yay! His stamina is rebuilding and it will still be a long road before he's able to run again (his ultimate goal), but every day his ankle gets stronger.
Other news where pictures are not appropriate (Matt wouldn't let me put them up--ha!)...ABIGAIL IS POTTY TRAINING!!! WOO HOO!!! She wears big girl panties except for sleeping and is completely motivated by candy--she is definitely my child! This is the best use of Halloween candy yet. I love that this has reduced my cloth diaper loads to a few a week!! We're still in process, but she's doing great!
Nana and Pop have become regular fixtures around the house, as they came up to help after Matt's surgery then left for a week and returned to spend Halloween with us. In typical Martin fashion, a few days intended stay turned into a week and a half, but I loved having the help since Matt's been swamped at work and G&A loved having Nana and Pop here! We finally have a working oven, completely sealed and electrified (aka Boomer proof) fence, and lots of other Daddy-do's completed thanks to Pop's diligence!!
We had date night last weekend and were able to go to the OU v. Texas A&M game (thanks McPhersons!!). Had a great time, walked too far for MattieJ, but cheered on the Sooners to victory!
Came home to find Abigail in respiratory distress with our sweet babysitter Amy so Abs had her first ER visit with dx of croup. We've been home all week this week sharing various viruses and now sinus infections and diarrhea....ah, life with twins. So off I go to clean with Lysol....

A few glimpses of trick-or-treating in the 'hood. Joined by Nana and Pop, the Pollans and the Hilfigers, we strolled the streets and had a great time! Daddy and Casey held down the fort at our house passing out candy and drinking homebrew since Matt's still on crutches. Perfect cool night and a great first experience for G&A....they were the cutest cowboy and cowgirl on the block!!
Our first stop, sweet neighbors Nana Millie and Paw Mark
Farmers, "Cowmom", dragon, monster, cowboy, cowgirl, fairy princess...we had the whole crew!
G&A rode in style in their straw-filled wagon!
Snuggling with Daddy after returning home and VERY tired....
