Happy New Year!

On New Year's Eve we let Mia stay up as late as she wanted. She lasted until a few moments after we did our sparkling apple cider toast, which was at 8:45 pm! She's quite the crazy party girl... Happy New Year to all. If your year was anything like ours, you should feel very lucky!

Momma's Bundles of Joy!

Unfortunately Momma doesn't make it onto the blog very often. That's because while we're all playing and having fun, she's sacrificing her life for our family! Momma is an amazing woman, and we are so lucky to have her as our fearless leader... She is our glue, and we love her very much!


Surprise, you've got twins! Wow, what a year it has been... To think that 12 months ago Mommy was pregnant and Mia was our sole focus. We have been so lucky to get the chance to share our lives with these three little people. They certainly create a tiring and chaotic environment, but we wouldn't change it for the world. The amount of love and gratification we receive from these midgets is truly overwhelming. Let's hope 2011 is half the year 2010 was!

Mia the Magician!

Mia is definitely in a magic phase! Aunt Caren got her an awesome gift which enables her to magically make a flower appear in an empty vase. Not only has Mia mastered the trick, but she has invited the entire neighborhood over for impromptu magic shows... She is very focused on this new art of hers. Big surprise, now she's requesting a magician for her annual wedding, I mean birthday party! You'd have to attend the soiree to understand the joke.

First Teeth!

Does this kid ever not smile?! I swear, these are the happiest children on the planet... I thought you would enjoy this picture as you can see Brandon's two new teeth! They both have teeth coming in on top & bottom... Very exciting!

Merry Christmas!

It was amazing to have so many little people around on Christmas morning! What better gift than to see such utter joy & pleasure on their faces as they tore through gifts and ate chocolate for breakfast?! The twins are growing so quickly and big sister Mia helped them with their new gifts... Absolutely the best Christmas ever! Note Aubrey hanging onto her brother... Too sweet!

Letter From Santa?!

Could it really be a letter from Santa?! It was so cute to see Mia so excited for Christmas... This was the first year that she really understood what was going on, and wanted to partake in all of the rituals. On Christmas Eve she left a plate of carrots out for Santa's reindeer, and received a letter from Santa in return. She was very excited... (Hint: click on the letter and it will enlarge)

Sugar Buzz!

This is what a sugar buzz looks like in the eyes of a child who receives 3 large bags of personalized M&M's for Christmas! That's right, Mia got M&M's, which are her absolute favorite, and they even say her name... She was thrilled, not to mention a little hopped up on sugar by 8 am!!
