Fall is in full swing and the days go by so quickly. We are still dealing with the drama of Lilly's tantrums each day she goes to pre-school. We recently visited a place called Connor Prairie, which was a lot of fun. The girls continue to admire animals from a distance (the chick was the only one they touched). But they love spending time with friends! My birthday came & went and Jeremy and I had a weekend away from the tantrums and age of true independence that has come with having now 3 year olds. It was a much-needed, much-appreciated break. Enjoy the pictures!
So, I couldn't leave the tantrum picture up for too long--here's a video to make your day! Credit given to our neighbors for catching (and encouraging) it!
I've said it before, and I'll say it again, this blog is a highlight reel. It does not necessarily reflect the adventures of EVERY DAY. Life can't always be about parks & playgrounds, cupcakes and comedy. You have to have the cruddy days to really appreciate the good ones! Here's a not-so-good-one that happened this week.

Part of my 7 Blogs in 7 Days motivation is to clean off my camera, in the process, I found this little gem of a photo I'd forgotten about. This was in Grandpa Bill's pool and I'm pretty sure the uncles had something to do with it. Before you call protective custody, my husband was in the pool with her and the can had been emptied and rinsed :-) But this is a fun picture to caption...what do you think would make a good one?

I have some seriously talented friends (and friends-of-friends). I have a friend who designs the most darling clothes for kids, great photographer friends, friends who sew super-hero capes for their kids, friends who open stores, friends who are crafty, rock-star baker friends, etc. It's enough to really make a girl feel inadequate.

Hey, have you heard??? Yes. I'm sure you have because EVERYONE I know has heard the saga that has been the opening of my family's gourmet food store. But, the fact is, now it is OPEN and ready to serve! So, if you are a friend, or a friend-0f-a-friend, or a neighbor or a random reader and you live in Central Indiana--add it to your list of places to shop this weekend! My family would so appreciate! If you aren't local, it doesn't hurt to visit their website or their facebook page. To my brother & parents--I'm proud of you for making this dream a reality!
Okay, so perhaps the title is a bit dramatic. The Beatles probably said it best, "All they need is love." I know I could have lived without them, but life might not have been as comfortable or as happy! This conversation is debated a lot in the new mommy world, especially with twins. Many wonder if you need 2 of everything, or 2 of somethings and if you need 2 of somethings, what somethings would that be. So I thought I'd reflect on a few things I LOVED during the stages of my twins. I'm not being paid by any of these companies and lord knows my readership isn't high enough to warrant that, but it does help when I think back and have to buy gifts at certain stages, so I decided to document.
I continue to push moms of multiples to read "When Your Expecting Twins, Triplets or Quads"
A great resource for me!
Life doesn't get much better!
This time last year, I caught up on blogging with 7 blogs in 7 days, so after a little motivating from my blogging buddy Jenny, we set-up a challenge. We are both doing 7 blogs in 7 days. Show us love with comments to keep us motivated as we clean out the memory cards in our camera and bring on FALL!
