Welcome to the Roe household blog. We're attempting to post 365 days of pictures in a Roe. Cork and I have been married since 2002 and welcomed identical daughters in August of 2009 after a struggle with infertility. Our girls were definitely worth the wait and I say they were destined to be here because they were conceived on my birthday, due on my sister's birthday and born on my grandma's birthday. What are the chances of that! We welcomed our third daughter in June of 2012. We all fell in love with her right away. She has two amazing older sisters who love to watch over her.

Twinado Trick of Treat
A&E wore their roller derby costumes from the party a few weeks ago. We planned on taking them to a house or two and then come home. We walked out of our house and both kids instantly knew something was up. There were other kids running all around, so E took off down the driveway to join in.
I took them out first and we stopped at our neighbors house. He gave them each a pencil. They both got so excited that he gave them two more each. We walked to the house next to that with both girls clutching their pencils. They weren't willing to give them up, but somehow were able to grab candy out of a bowl. Both now had a packet of skittles and 6 pencils. The neighbor next to them saw us out and had bags ready for the girls with their names written on them. Each bag had play-doh, bubbles, pencils and candy. The girls were now in heaven and not willing to go back home. I was a mean mom and made them head back to the house. Neither would walk since they wanted to keep going. I picked both up with all their new found treasure and hiked it back home.
Cork took them out next with much of the same reaction. We both thought they would be too small to be excited, but they were in heaven. They love visiting with our neighbors and loved getting all the brightly wrapped objects/candy. They had no idea it was candy they were getting, but they knew it was for them. After Cork got back, I took them out again where they collected a few tootsie rolls and twizzlers. We kept telling neighbors that the girls didn't need candy, but everyone loved seeing their reaction and gave them candy anyway.
