Emily has the most beautiful curls I have ever seen.  Seriously....I really love them.  I'm not sure who she got them from, but I'm so glad she has them.  I hope she keeps them as she gets older :)

Temper Tantrums.....

Living with three-year-old twins is like living with two crazy people (and I do mean that literally).  In my never ending parental naiveness, I thought that we were in the free and clear once the terrible twos were gone.  Once again, these two are proving me wrong.  One second everything is going splendidly, then wham....everything has fallen apart.  The slightest thing can set them off.  Once Emily had a complete meltdown because "her sock was touching her foot."  Seriously!!  And not to be outdone, Elson threw a temper tantrum just yesterday because I had the audacity to take the wrapper off his lollipop for dare I??!!  Seriously....these kids could be mistaken for crazy people, but I'm pretty sure they're just regular three-year-olds ;)

......and sometimes they are sooooooooo sweet!!!

Sleeping Twins

I have an obssesion with taking pictures of the twins while they are sleeping.  I take a picture of them asleep in their bed almost every night.  I know this is weird, but I can't help myself!!!!  I've recently realized I'm developing quite a collection of sleeping twin pictures.  Here are a couple from my last night....

Pre-K 3

The twins have officially started Pre-K!!!  I didn't feel sad at all until I dropped them off in the carpool line.  For mother's day out, you had to park and bring them to the door.  In Pre-K, there is a carpool line.  As they got out my minivan that first day, all I could think was that I was sending them out into the great big world and had forgotten to tell them so many things (like not to stick anything up their nose).  I know it's crazy because they are only there for three hours a day and I know the break from each is good and healthy, but I couldn't help but feel sad to have lost that time with them.  Enough about me....they had a great day and were happy to go back the next day!  They also said they loved their new teacher :)

goodbye sweet babies :(

Fire Station Visit

We went with a group of friends to visit the local fire station a few weeks ago.  The twins love the big fire trucks and firemen were all so sweet and friendly with the crazy kiddos.

Imaginary Sister

Emily has an imaginary sister.  So far, here is what I know about her....her name is Elsa (of course!), she is 28, her hair is red (like Ariel), she has a dog, she isn't married, her job is "being a princess," Drew is her dad and I am her mom (thank goodness), and she lives far away.  She truly believes with all her soul that she exist.  When we question Emily about this so-called sister, she is very matter of fact.  When I asked her how old she is, she answered "28" without missing a beat.  I mean, she didn't even have to think about it!!  By the way, she has also started telling people that her name is Ariel.

I think she imagines her sister to look like this but with red hair.
