My Top 10

Hello again!
I say that to my faithful following of 0, hahaha. I am keeping this up mostly for myself as a journal opportunity and hopefully to keep as a memento for the munchkins, so no big deal. I guess maybe if I told some people about it they might visit. Anyway, I love this picture! The boys are playing Peter Pan and Captain Hook with kitchen utensils, this is all the rage right now! The lock on that kitchen drawer is broken, so they get into it constantly and then always head outside because of course they have figured out the lock on the slider as well. I try to at least have them dressed, but other than that it is no big deal. Our yard is completely fenced and safe and I am either out there with them or watching from the kitchen with the door open. They love to run, I love them to get worn out and once in a while I get some stuff done in the kitchen at the same time. The twinship is just flourishing right now and I LOVE it! They still fight like you wouldn't believe, if we don't have 3 time-outs a day for biting what would we do?, but they are also really starting to play together and get their imaginations going together. The other day Davis was in time out for something other than biting (trying to play with the ice maker-AGAIN!) and Carter waited outside the door for him and patted him on the head when he came out and said, Sorry Dadis. They are actually very good with the Sorrys, and Excuse Mes, Please, Thank yous, etc. They call each other Tardy most of the time which I find kind of funny, I think of it as their version of Carter, but Carter calls Davis it as well. Funny boys. We have been busy as usual, if I am not at work I am playing with those boys! And when I am at work I am shopping online for them and getting their preschool lessons ready and relaxing (oh yeah, working some too :)). We went to Farm Country to see the baby cows again and Davis got to feed one, they are so darn cute. We fed the goats too and had a pony ride, all good fun. We went to the Dinosaur museum this week too and enjoyed the Monday activity night where we made dinosaur sand art. We are sure using that Thanksgiving Point membership to the max--wait until the gardens open. It was $100 for the year and in 2 months it has already paid for itself and that was before the peak season. I highly recommend it! We've been busy painting again, how they love to paint and how I hate cleaning it all up! Hate to pent their enthusiasm though. We have also spent as much time possible outside as the weather has been so nice. I am so spent by Friday from being on call all night and then getting up early with the boys but they were so sweet playing at the park today. They "cleaned up cleaned up" by throwing all the rocks away and followed each other all over repeating what the other was doing. While watching them I thought of the top 10 best things about nearly 2.5 year old twin boys (there is a worst list too, but who needs that!)
10. All the little outfits are just that much cuter on 2 kids
9. Seeing their different personalities develop like Davis who always likes to wear a hat
8. The endless giggling coming from their bedroom when they are supposed to be asleep
7. NEVER a dull moment
6. Keeping the washing machine and dishwasher well tuned through frequent use
5. Seeing them learn things together
4. 'Tome on Tardy' 'I'm toming'
3. Endless hugs and sticky kisses, it still can make me cry, they can be so sweet to their mama and each other
2. Watching them play with their Daddy, I have the 3 best boys in the world
1. Watching a lifelong best-friendship grow before my eyes.
Well, time to "work" again, until next time-
Carter and Davis' Mommy (or Heidi)

A very nicely written blog about a "life-long best friendship". I came to your blog through Blogger and I just love the way it is presented.
I am totally new in the Blogosphere and i am loving every moment of it.
Best of luck for the boys.
