...And so, yes, life is now back to normal!

They're almost home...

It has been 5 very different days around here since Friday. Jackson and Jada left Friday morning to spend some time with some very, very favorite family. Those of you that know us at all have heard plenty of times about Uncle Jack and Aunt Paulette. Well, that is where they have been and we are leaving here in just a few minutes to meet them to pick them up. Can't wait to see them!!

It's early...

...but I'm still up and awake and ready for the day and have been since 4:45. The last 2 weeks have unfortunately been heavy on awake and light on sleep. I know it has to do with some extreme allergy issues that keep me from breathing good. Saturday and Sunday nights were the best nights of sleep for quite a while, but last night (Monday) was again a little light on sleep. Although I certainly don't require 8 hours of sleep a night (which has been a good thing in the past), I would still like to have more than 3 or 4. My "feel good" runs down really quick when I go for a long time without a good nights rest. Don't really know why I'm telling you all of this except for the fact that it is laying HEAVY on my heart - and I'm getting a little sick of it!! 8-)

I have to work at Nathan's office today from 9-5. When I get home, I will be working on different things for the early weekend. Plans seem to be going good for the party and we are excited about it. Wish you all could come!

Also, a HUGE congratulations to some of our really great friends - Jonathan and Leanna! We are so happy for you. Aubrey is totally and completely gorgeous...just adding to the beauty that Lindsey had already created! Can't wait to see ya!

I was looking around on my computer this morning and found this layout I did of the twins when they were 10 weeks old. It's amazing what 3 years and 42 weeks does for a baby, huh? I think they both look very different from what they did when they were babies. Obviously you can still tell that these pictures are of them, but .....

Have a great day!

The twins had a FUN birthday!

We had a wonderful day together as a family yesterday. Nathan takes off work on the kids birthdays and so we just do whatever it is that they ask. One of them wanted to go to McDonald's and swimming and the other one wanted to go to El Rodeo and to Sluggers and Putters (a great putt-putt, bumper boat, go-kart, batting cages type of place). We were headed to Sluggers and Putters when it started raining - it was pouring actually. So we had to cancel that this time, but we did go swimming and were there for a few hours. We also went to both McDonald's and El Rodeo. Our church is having VBS this week so we went there last night.

We have started a (somewhat) fun tradition for our family - at least while the kids are young. We have "family bed" on the night before any one persons birthday and we all sleep together here in our bed. A king size bed gets small REALLY quick with 3 squirmy kiddies. 8-) They love it, but like I said - it is for while they are young. Can't see us doing this with an 18 year old and 2 17 year olds. LOL!

Our party isn't till Thursday the 19th. We are combining their birthday with Treyton's Kindergarten party. Should be great fun!

Anyway - Happy, Happy 4th Birthday to our precious "babies"!

Have a great day.
