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.

Could Time Slow Down Just a LITTLE?!

Two and a half years ago, in January of 2009, I posted about a pretty big change my twin girls got to experience when they went from this......
    

to this......

 
 (don't they look so little?!)


Now, two years later, we have achieved the next milestone.....
They are just growing up way to fast and are LOVING their new beds!  It all came about through shear luck as well.  I just happened to overhear someone at church saying they had a loft bed they didn't need anymore that they were going to give away FREE.  Considering these girls (who are VERY tall for 4 years old....) took up their toddler beds from end to end, I jumped on the chance!  We got one of the mattresses for free also, so we only had to buy one mattress and the bedding!  Sure, the wood may be a little dark for a brightly colored girls room, but we just didn't really have room to store it while we painted it and the girls were super excited to sleep in them anyway- and you just can't beat the price.

The only down side?  They've already learned how to jump from the top bed to the bottom one..... I wonder how long it will be till we have a trip to the urgent care?  Knock on wood- we have yet to have a child break a bone- I don't want to "break" that record.....

That cute flowered bedding totally works with the dark bed. That was a major score! I bet they love it! Do they fight over who sleeps where?
