Beauty parlor and crunchy noodles...

Tonight, we played beauty parlor with ma.  She even let us brush her hair.  Ma told us she'll buy us as many hair barrettes as we wanted if we hurry and grow some hair! :)  

Then we got to have our new favorite snack, chow mein crunchy noodles... YUMMM...

Ma knit us some baby "b-a-n-k-e-t-t-t-s"

Ma just learned to knit and croche, so she made us some baby afghans, which we refer to as "b-a-n-k-e-t-t-t-s".   She also made us some hats, mittens, and now onto sweaters.  FUN!  Thanks nana for helping ma with all the croche-tips!

Happy Halloween!

This year, we went to the Mall of America (Nickelodeon - Nick-Or-Treat) as Bronco Cheerleaders.  Cousin Lancasters, this one's for you...BSU Broncos.... For Di Thuong and Cau Thai, it's the Denver Broncos!!! 
We weren't scared of the big ghost... we liked his bright red eyes....
We danced with pirates too.  Raegan was not shy and got up close to the stage to dance.  We also enjoyed some time at Lego-land.  No candy for us this year, maybe next year!!!  
  Our Godparents went with us too.  Aunt Kelly and Uncle Patrick chased us all over the Mall.... we're FASTER than you think.....

getting ready for winter... and playing dress up

Our first snow experience!



We weren't expecting any snow anytime soon, so we weren't quite prepared for it.  We didn't have gloves or mittens, but wanted the girls to experience what snow felt like.  They were fascinated initially, and after about 5 minutes of holding the COLD snowballs, they began to cry... we've got to get some mittens for those little hands!!!

Raegan and Riley are getting so big! (their personalities are getting big, but they are still 20 lbs!)  They've been 20 lbs for about 4-5 months.  They are eating a lot, but staying VERY active!!!

Another fun family visit....

O Kim, and Chu Tim came to visit with cousins Chi Sydney and Chi Cameron.  We went to the Mall of America and ate at the Rain Forest Cafe.  We weren't even scared of the thunderstorms they had in the Rain Forest.  Thanks for coming guys!  It's been too long.

Raeg's bit me AGAIN!!!

Riley took Raegan's love-ee, Raegan took it back, then Riley took it again and turned away from Raegan.... Raegan got frustrated and bit Riley! OUCH!  She really got her this time! 

Our trip to the zoo...

Raegan and Riley cried so hard after we left EVERY animal we saw.  When we were ready to go see the next animal, they thought we were leaving the zoo, so they just kept looking back at the animals, not realizing that there were more animals to see.  Their favorite was looking at the ducks and the flamingos.  They could have spent hours at that pond!  They also enjoyed the sea lions and the gorillas.  They were pointing and ahhh-ing at everything!
