OCTOBER 2007 - DECEMBER 2007
CASEY RINGS IN THE NEW YEAR BY RINGING MOMMY'S EARS
December 31, 2007 - January 1, 2008 - Erin, Colin and Casey hosted a small New Years gathering at home today. Most of the the Treude's were in bed by midnight except for Casey and mommy. Casey wanted to celebrate by crying. She was probably upset that her birth year is now over. Oh well, HAPPY 2008!

THE TREUDE KIDS GET A VISIT FROM SANTA CLAUS
December 25, 2007- Erin, Colin and Casey were quite surprised this morning when Santa arrived at their door step. After a few tears, the twins warmed up to St. Nick enough to be near him for this photo op. On behalf of the Treude's and Betzal's - warm wishes for a safe and happy Holiday Season.

GRANDMOM'S BIRTHDAY
December 19, 2007- Today is grandmom's birthday so the family and a few friends went out for a nice sit down dinner. Erin and Colin are sporting their new Mickey and Minnie sweaters from Aunt Linda and Uncle Joe. Casey looked cute too but she is under the table asleep. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMOM!

FERTILE H.S. FRIENDS
December 16, 2007- Erin, Colin and Casey spent the afternoon at Ava's house where many of mommy's high school friends were celebrating the Holiday Season. This picture includes about 1/2 of the kids that were there. I think it is safe to say mommy graduated from high school that served very fertile cafeteria food.

THE TWINS ARE TWO, THE TWINS ARE TWO!
December 8 , 2007 - Erin and Colin turned 2 today, that's right - TWO YEARS OLD. The family and a few friends celebrated today at a Mickey Mouse theme party. Erin and Colin can't get enough of Mickey these days and would watch the HOT DOG song 24/7 if they could. Here is some other news over the last month or so with Erin and Colin:
Ms. Erin is putting her words together very well making sentences and asking questions.
Colin is very good with his words when he wants to be but then speaks "Colin talk" when he tries to put them together. Erin is still is best audience.
The 1st time the twins climbed the bookshelf mommy yelled at them and said "GET DOWN". Now they climb the bookcase when mommy isn't looking and Colin yells "GET DOWN" to himself but he he doesn't seem to listen.
and probably the funniest of all is Ms. Erin..... She is back to breast feeding. No, she isn't the one getting fed, she lifts her shirt and tries to breast feed her doll baby. I wonder who she is taking after? TOO CUTE.

CRAZINESS AT UNCLE JACK'S
November 19, 2007 - Well Daddy is away so the kids must play. Today they headed over to Uncle Jack's for an afternoon of total craziness. Erin and Colin are definitely each others best audience. They can entertain each other for hours everyday. It is amazing how much they can make each other laugh. Today at Uncle Jack's the twins enjoyed playing with the voice activated light switch, ping pong balls and chalkboard. Afterwards they went home to see their baby sister who they missed very much today.
 
EAGLES TAKE IT TO THE SKINS
 
November 11 , 2007 - All three Treude kids traveled to Uncle Greg and Aunt Jill's house today for some football fun. As you can see, Casey LOVES watching the Eagles games. The Eagles won this one (vs. the Redskins) with a come from behind victory in the 4th quarter but their playoff hopes are still very slim.


ERIN AND COLIN ARE A MONTH SHY OF 2, CASEY IS NOW 2 WEEKS OLD

Notice what side of the table Colin is sitting on.....

Now notice where he is... (finishing Erin's platter)

Now guess who this belly belongs to

Erin does not appreciate when grand-mom holds Casey
November 8 , 2007 - Today the twins enjoyed the Fall weather by taking a walk and playing with the leaves. Casey had her 1st doctors appointment - SHE IS UP TO 9LBS. WOW. She must be trying to catch Colin but most certainly has a long ways to go.

HALLOWEEN 2007
October 31, 2007 - From lions to elephants to orange newborn outfits...Click above for Treude kids Halloween pictures. Happy Halloween.
ALSO - Congratulations to Aunt Jill who won 1st place in a pumpkin carving contest at work. See her Cookie Monster Pumpkin work below....

CASEY IS HOME

October 28, 2007 - Casey Treude spent her 1st night at home last night. She must believe sleep is overrated because all she wanted to do was snuggle with mommy all night long. The twins are adjusting very well to the new addition and are enjoying their roles as big brother and big sister.


COUSIN BRIANS PRIDE

October 28, 2007 - In September 2006, just two months after his fourth birthday, our cousin Brian was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes. His family is very proud of how well Brian has accepted the challenge of this disease. They are equally proud of how Colleen and Sarah have helped and encouraged Brian throughout this past year. As much of a bonding experience this has been, the Joslins would prefer to get rid of the disease all together.
Today many of Brian's friends and family gathered at the Art Museum in Philly for a four mile fun Walk to help support this cause. Research and modern medicine have made tremendous strides due in no small part to fundraisers like the JDRF Walk. All of the money raised today will go directly toward research to find a cure for Juvenile Diabetes. It is our hope that by the time that Brian graduates from West Catholic High School this disease will be completely wiped from existence.
The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is the #1 non-profit supporter of diabetes research worldwide. The “Walk to Cure Diabetes”, which took place today, is their largest fund raising event. The Joslin's would like to thank EVERYONE who contributed to team "Brian's Pride" and this this wonderful event! We'll see you next year.

A NEW BABY SISTER

October 24, 2007 - Welcome to the world Erin and Colin's new baby sister..... CASEY ELISABETH TREUDE (yes with an"s") was born today at 9:04am. She was double foot breech and wiggled her way out of the c-section as soon as Dr. Helen Kuroki tapped on her feet. She came out with her brother's looks and her sister's lungs. Casey is 7lbs 15 ounces and 20 3/4 inches long, exactly one ounce bigger than Mr. Colin when he was born and his same height. Mom and baby are resting comfortably at Riddle Hospital, which by the way is the same hospital Grandmom works in. Erin and Colin are loving life at home with Pop Pop and Aunt Jill. The Treude's and Betzal's are VERY excited about the new addition, please sign our guestbook.

Here is Erin's reaction after hearing the news
that her new sister is here
And here is Colin's reaction.
The twins will meet Casey tonight.
