First Snow

Up here in North Louisiana, it snows every few years.  Not a lot, but enough to close schools and for everyone to make a big deal about it.  While it's in the 70s today, it actually snowed last week.  It was the twins first time to experience snow and they were very excited!

Big Kid Beds

Emily finally wore me down.  Every morning she cries for me from her crib "come help me out of the bed" and "save me."  So, Drew and I decided it was time for Operation Big Kid Beds.  We got two twin beds and let each kiddo pick out their own sheets.  Not surprisingly, Elson picked Star Wars and Emily picked Princess.  I was a little nervous about how they would take to the new found freedom of being able to get out of their beds.  Bedtime went wonderfully.  No one got out of the bed and they fell asleep fairly quickly.  Naptime is another story.  We have had some trouble convincing them that it is naptime and not playtime.  Today is the third day and it definitely went better than the last two.  I'm hopeful that we are on the right track.

"Hunta Man" Season

Those that know us well know that Drew LOVES to hunt with his Dad.  Elson is already excited to join them one day.  When Elson sees someone in camouflage, he calls them a "Hunta Man."  Well, this Momma is happy to say that we survived "Hunta Man" season.  Not only did we survive, but we have been enjoying a really good duck gumbo the last few days.
