Halloween 2015

We figured we'd just go ahead and post a belated Halloween post.....many months after saying we'd be posting more often.

But how CUTE do we look?! Mom and Dad dressed me up as Buzz Lightyear, Space Ranger!

And I got to be Jessie the cowgirl. Yeeeehaaa! An aside here....Mom makes a valid point that Jessie didn't wear a skirt in the movie....why does the Halloween costume have a skirt and leggings with it?

I dunno, but you look great! Super cute. Dad muttered something about how it was easier to get this outfit on than it would have been to give you pants, but whatever. You're adorable!

Thanks, Sy. Sam also enjoyed getting to be dressed up for Halloween. He was Baymax from some movie called 'Big Hero Six'

Wait....why isn't his name Six? Isn't he the hero?

I don't know. I questioned the logic of the title myself. But since that's a 'Big Kid Show', I don't have enough information to go on. 

Ah well....Hooray, Baymax!

Chill out, Sy. Man....

 We also did a bit of pumpkin carving, which we left up to the grownups. However, we were represented by the little pumpkins that were interspersed 

We went outside a few days after Halloween and had a chance to play with them.

Yeah, Lena decided to put her pumpkin into Mom's pumpkin. Hilarious!

Thanks, Sy. I mean look at this thing! It's like it was MADE to go in there!

 I also had a great time running around with those little fellas. You played a bit with the candles, right? 

A bit...don't tell anyone.

A Belated Hello!

Hello there, world!

My name is Lena Frances Pellegrino-Grant. I was born on June 17th, 2014 at 7:09 PM.

(Note the drawing our big brother made me with a frog sticker! Pretty sweet, right? The nurse was kind enough to post it right where I could see it which got him SO excited.)

My name is Silas Angelo Pellegrino-Grant. I was born on June 17th, 2014 at 7:10 PM. One tiny minute after my big sister. (Yes, I know the 'L' in my name is a repurposed '7'. Just roll with it.)

(Note the drawing our big brother made me with a monkey sticker! How cool is THAT!? The nurse was kind enough to post it right where I could see it which got him SO excited.)

It has been over a year since we were born, and during that time, we kept meaning to start a blog...but never got around to it.

Yeah, we kept finding different milestones to tie it to, like our first birthday, first Christmas....

....First fight...

...Second fight...

But now that Dad finally has a bit of time, we decided to celebrate our big move back to our parents' home state of Connecticut, by starting the blog in earnest, and encouraging our big brother Sam to update his blog more frequently.

It's no coincidence that his blog went dark after we were born. We're quite a handful. But really, we're adorable handfuls. Seriously! We are so cute!!

So keep an eye out. We're going to keep you updated on our new Connecticut adventures.

But first we're going to spend some time catching you up on our first year of life and the great things we have been doing with our families! Whoo hoo!

Alright, Silas....seriously. Settle down. They're gonna think you're crazy.

Lighten up! They're gonna think you're crazy! brothers are the worst.

No! Baby sisters are! But I still love you! Let me hug your head!

Silas! Stop, we're trying to wrap up!

Yes! Let me wrap my hands around your head! I love you SO MUCH!

Silas! Mom! Dad! Sam?! Anyone!?
