We love sidewalk chalk!

I tried putting their ball-caps from last summer on them... a little too small this year! Notice that Betsy is using her chalk like makeup - Oh, that kid!

really early spring (summer)

It has been extremely warm this week, with a record temperature of 81 degrees yesterday. Today, it is supposed to be another record (warmest it has been since this day in 1977). We have been enjoying the early summer-like weather so much!

I have tons of pictures of Ben and Maggie on this same slide in our neighborhood. Perfect for twins. Why do they suddenly look SO tall?

Tuesday Stroll

Just a little stroll with our "babies" and a visit with a neighbor's dog.

Now that we have had warmer weather and the windows have been open, Betsy and Bree hang out in front of the window in the bonus room every evening before bedtime just watching the life of our neighborhood - and commenting on it. "Doggy? Doggy! Doggy, where AAAA-A-A-R-E you?" Goodness, they love dogs!

How to eat a cupcake

I have been getting very tired of the mess the twins create at the dinner table, so tonight, after dinner, I allowed them to eat cupcakes in the bathtub. Just took their clothes off, left the diapers on, and popped them in the tub - knowing that cleanup would be a breeze!
Betsy decided that cupcake frosting would taste best if it were smeared all over her toes. Maybe she just liked the squishy feeling of the cake on her foot. I thought it looked so funny!

Friday Night Cozy

Pinterest has sucked me in!
I have vowed not to let it take over my life, so I try not to browse throught it more than once a week or so. Here is a photo of a great project I found a few weeks ago. Just take 5 pillow cases and sew them together, stuffing them with 5 pillows. I added some ribbons to the top and two pillows down so the top two could be folded together and tied to create a back-rest. All four kids love them! When the twins saw what I had created for Ben and Maggie, they got in on the action too - with sleeping bags, pillow pets, binkies, etc. Ben likes to turn all the lights out and watch movies as if we're in a theater.
