Yes, I realize we're Jewish, but hey, we're greedy! And tell me this isn't the cutest damn picture?! Our sweet neighbor Lucia offered to watch Brandon for a little while this afternoon so Momma could run to grab Mia from school. While she had him she took the liberty of dressing him up as Santa Claus and captured a bunch of hysterical little photos... He's jolly alright!
These kids sure know how to work their Momma! It's truly amazing the amount of effort that goes into caring for these children... Usually only one rests at a time, but every once in a while they will simply wilt at about the same moment! Case in point. Here they are in the middle of being fed some yummy sweet potatoes, and both of them fall sound asleep! Couple of hams...
I'm happy to announce that in the last two weeks Aubrey has made tremendous progress! In no time she has begun rolling over, is sitting up strong, and even beginning to make progress towards crawling... Of course Bam Bam Brandon is Army crawling across the room. I'm afraid if we turn our back on him he may crawl off down the street and we'll find him hitting on a neighbor girl. It's really fun to watch them progressing!
We may not be going to the National Championship, but we sure as hell put a proper whooping on Michigan! What better way to cap off a season?! Ryan's Mom & Dan visited for Thanksgiving, so they stopped by for the Ohio State game and a BBQ. Donna is so loving and sweet, and just ate up the children... There's our future Buckeye cheerleader!

Aubrey is so clearly different than her brother & sister! She is just the sweetest, gentlest little girl... Whenever she hears Daddy's voice she lights up with the biggest smile! She truly is a special little girl. It's so fun to watch their little personalities blooming!
Mia is definitely what you would call a 'Tomboy'. She is very into cars, bikes and playing in the garage! This suits Daddy just fine... However, lately Momma was growing a little concerned that Mia only liked boy toys. Daddy assured Momma that this was quite natural, but Mom likes to worry nonetheless... So Momma was very excited the other night when Mia saw a commercial for the 'Magic Rise Oven' and declared she would like the princess version! Needless to say, Momma had it overnighted to the house, and the midget is now knee deep in fresh baked cupcakes!!
Note the tie-dye shirt she made at a birthday party last weekend. She is very proud!

Stacy really enjoyed taking Mia to Kindermusic when she was a baby. So when it came time to enroll the twins, she faced the dilemma of handling two kids by herself... Thankfully a lot of family and friends have come through and helped out when schedules permit. Last week Grammy & Papa made the trek from Tucson to partake in the singing and dancing! As you can see, Brandon really enjoyed having Papa with him in class...
