So much to be thankful for...

A very curious little boy

A funny little girl...

...climbing over her grandpa

A beautiful niece

A smart, fun, and funny brother

A dad that loves his grandkids so much that he plays with them until he passes out (or was it too much turkey?)

The best sister ever

And a wonderfully caring and supportive husband that is such a good daddy and a mom that helps out when I need her most and makes the best pie in the world!

I couldn't be more thankful!

Sooo Sleepy

A few days ago I put Nick in the exer-saucer while I was putting Alli down for her nap. It was around 9:30, their usual morning nap time, so he shouldn't have been too sleepy, but...

When I came back this is what I, he's not dead...he is just crashed out in a puddle of his own drool. This NEVER happens to us. I put him in his crib and he slept for a half hour. And I thought he was exhausted...

Happy Birthday!

We celebrated Alli and Nick's first birthday a week ago! We had family over for dinner and had a great time. Nick and Alli got totally spoiled with lots of new toys. We even gave them each their own little cake and they made a huge mess, but it was hilarious to watch. I wish we had it on video!

I was worried we would have to cancel their party because they got a REALLY bad cold a couple of days before. I was even in urgent care with Alli at midnight when she turned 1 because she was so congested she couldn't breath and sleep. Luckily they got much better on their birthday and we got to have their party. It just goes to show you that even one-year olds can't resist birthday cake!

I seriously can't believe that it has already been a year since my twins were born. I can't remember what life was like without them. Yes, they are A LOT of work, but they have made this the happiest year of my life!
