Always Crazy, Always Fun, Always Love

Ray Romano once compared life with twins to living in a frat house. As he put it, "no one sleeps, there is a lot of noise and a lot of throwing up." I find this very true with 4 young children, including twins. However, though things are always crazy, we always try to have fun and, most certainly, always love each other.

The girls have been busy too!

My last post focused on the talent show that Kenny and Jacob performed in. This weekend, I will have more to show off with what they have been doing at school. However, for this post, I would like to show some things that Ellen & Meghan have been doing lately. They have been quite busy as well! Thanks to my friends Abbey and Autumn who introduced us to the awesome preschool classes at one of our city's recreation centers! They have these great programs for people of ages that are dirt cheap. (that is where the boys are having their piano classes, as well, for now.) On Thursday's, the girls take a Pre-K gymnastics and Pre-K art. Both of which cost a whopping $5 per kid for the entire 8 week course. Nope, not kidding- only $5! Then, on Friday's they take a Pre-K cooking class for the price of $10 each! I couldn't pass that up at that price to give them the chance to get out, do something fun, and interact with other kids.

So, here are some pictures to enjoy of some of their classes: (some of these may be of poor quality- some were taken with my cell phone camera....)

Pre-K Gymnastics:
Abbey (who is the teacher) helps Ellie on the balance beam!

Meghan practices her frog hop and log roll!

Pre-K Art:
On this day, they painted with corn syrup tinted with food coloring. A very cool effect!

Pre-K Cooking:

We baked and decorated sugar cookies for Valentine's day!

They got to make pizzas and punch out their own dough!

And, here, they got to top their pizzas however they wanted! (Daddy got to come this day! That made it extra fun!!)

One more thing.....

What a difference a year makes!!

Last February, when I took the girls to their 2- year check up, it.....was.....a.....nightmare! Between the girls freaking out about every little thing and Jacob (who was sick anyway) throwing up in the exam room- it did not leave pleasant memories. For the whole story, click here.

A few weeks ago, had their 3 year check up and it was a whole different experience! Their were no tears! Meghan (who was most afraid of the doctor before) hopped right up on the table, excited to see the doctor! Ellie was a little more hesitant, but allowed the doctor to examine her from the safety of my lap.

I had to snap this picture of them while we were waiting for the doctor to come in. They were given these little gowns to put on, and I thought it was just too adorable!!!

Both girls are very healthy! Both are in the 98th % for their height! I knew they were tall,!
