NYC with Anna Claire

Momie and I recently took Anna Claire to NYC for a couple of days.  We had a great time and made some fun memories.  My favorite memory from the trip was when I asked Anna Claire what she wanted out of life......her response "to be happy and not be greedy."  I thought that really spoke to her sweet spirit.  I think Anna Claire's favorite part was all of the candy shops we visited. 





We even got Momie on the Subway!!!!

Easter 2015

We had a laid back Easter in the Smith house.  We left out some carrots and water (because apparently the Easter Bunny only drinks water) out for the Easter Bunny, which of course he thoroughly enjoyed.  There was talk of setting up a booby trap to catch the Easter Bunny, but thankfully they forgot about it when bedtime rolled around.  The twins enjoyed getting baskets full of candy and other goodies.  Emily said "Mom, the Easter Bunny got his candy from Gumdrops and Lollipops!"  All I can say is that the Easter Bunny has good taste :)

Elson's First Soccer Game

Elson finally had his first soccer game last weekend (the first two games got rained out).  Even though Elson made zero contact with the ball, the team did a great job and ended up winning by a couple of goals.  I have to say, in my biased opinion, he was the cutest soccer player I have ever seen. He said he had a great time and is looking forward to the next game.

Gumdrops and Lollipops

I've been slacking on blogging because I've been busy co-creating/owning a new candy businesss....Gumdrops and Lollipops.  My friend Lily and I came up with it and put it all to action rather quickly.  We have been so busy filling orders and eating candy!  The twins tell everyone they have a candy business and they love that the house is always full of candy!  Our website will be up and running soon.....you can find us www.gumdropslollipops.com

The Blizzard of 2015

Last year, the twins had their first experience with snow.  Well, this year they got to experience a full on blizzard (at least by Louisiana standards).  The first day was mostly ice, but by day three we had an accumulation of a couple of inches!!!!!!  We enjoyed the snow by building snowmen, making snow angels, having snowball fights, making a sled out of plastic drawer (because why would someone in Louisiana have an actual sled?), making snow ice cream, and watching lots of Netflix.  The snow is melting now and I think we were all happy to get back to our regular schedule.  It was fun while it lasted.
