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.

Having a mother who works for the Ohio State University (specifically, the hospital) has its perks. For example, I got a college education at 50% off! Another perk would be that she gets access to season tickets to the OSU home games.
They sell most of their tickets, but my dad takes someone to a game every year. Last year, he took Kenny to a game and promised this year he would take Jacob. Jacob has been counting down all year, looking forward to HIS chance to go to a game in the SHOE with grandpa all by himself for his first time ever! It was on November 19th- for the Ohio State/ Penn State game.
As luck would have it, about 6 weeks before the game, my dad fell down the stairs and crushed his foot. He had to have surgery and is doing well, but has limited mobility- maneuvering "the shoe" was not an option. So, instead of a grandpa/ grandson date- it became a father/son date! Aaron took him and they had a blast! The weather could not have been more perfect. The Bucks lost, but that didn't really spoil their fun.
Can you tell he was excited?! I LOVE his goofy expressions!
Aaron even splurged and bought him this $8 (?!) foam finger- which totally thrilled him!
Looks like an attempt at a picture of the two of them together- not the best, but the only one they got!
And of course, they LOVED watching the band- which is my favorite part as well. After all, football is just a game to watch while waiting for the band, right?!
They even got to watch the famous "Script Ohio" performed TWICE! Apparently it was the directors last home game before retiring so it was done as a tribute to him.
I know my dad and Jacob were both disappointed that dad couldn't go, but I know that Jacob and Aaron had a blast together- I love to see them spending time together!
I love being a mom to my two boys and twin girls. No matter how crazy it gets, I wouldn't change a thing! I believe that chocolate and peanut butter are two of the worlds most perfect foods! (especially when combined!) I truly believe we could end the war in Iraq simply by having the world leaders sit around the table together with some Reese's cups. You just can't help but feel peace with this kind of perfection there!
