We recently had the opportunity to go to the Shriner's Circus with our buddies the Smiths (here is last year's trip).  The twins, of course, had a great time and Drew was even able to join us this year!!!

Super Safety Saturday

Every year the Junior League puts on a Super Safety Saturday where the kids can meet first responders and climb in first responder vehicles.  When we first walked up we were greeted by a dress up dolphin, which of course freaked Emily out.  After that she was done.  Elson and I had to drag her around so that he could check out everything.  There were a few moments where she stopped throwing a fit long enough to take a picture.  Aside from dealing with Emily's fit, Elson had a great time.

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....
