Thankful Thursday

Hello again and welcome to another edition of, Thankful Thursday!
1. It seems like this is on every list, but I am thankful yet again for UVMOM. Our twin club is so awesome. This week we had a planting play group--playing at a park and then planting some seeds. Here are some shots:

My new fav pic of Davis. He was actually "running away" here but was still willing to smile. He put on his back pack and told me he was going to school. I told him boys that poop in their pants don't get to go to school, but that's another story.

And here's Carter. Note the nice summer time wear--it's snowing outside now. sigh. At least Lowell got to break in his new snow plow at work.

2. This week I was thankful for Reva going shopping with me. So fun to go out with a girl friend especially when you bring along company like this:

Don't these look like such a fun (and full of trouble) group of boys! For the record only mine are trouble, Reva's boys Andrew and Anthony are really just sweethearts. They are a month older than my yahoos.

3. I am thankful my naughty naughty boys (today they thoughts it would be great fun to dump an entire bag of Cheetos down the heater vent. How to even start cleaning that up???) can make me laugh. We just got home from running errands and were eating dinner while watching Pinocchio (pronounced 'eeyokiko' of course). Davis decided he really needed to go potty but did not want to stop eating or watching the show. So he went and got his potty and found this solution:

Lowell says he's a "man". Who knows, but it worked. :)

4. I'm thankful for Uncle Robbie. My bro comes over each Sunday and the kids just adore him. Here they are modeling their superhero PJs.

And here is what you get when you mix a Sunday evening with Uncle Robbie and superhero PJs:

Note the clock shows it is past 9! They were having so much fun though.

5. Finally I am thankful for dress up. This is the bub's new favorite thing. Every time I pick them up from the gym they are both dressed as cowboys. At the Children's museum it is firemen:

If you haven't guessed yet, I used the thankful Thursday format just to set up the pics, but it was better than my normal narrative wasn't it? I need to throw in a Happy Birthday to my sis Hillary as well. The boys enjoyed picking out treats for her and were so bummed when they didn't get to yell surprise when she got her flowers. That night did not go at all as planned. We were going to go to the zoo, but we were 5 minutes too late. So we went to the children's museum which it turned out closed in 30 minutes. Then everyone who was meeting us for dinner were going to be an hour and the kiddos who did not nap weren't going to wait. Alas they did not get to give their surprise. But I did enjoy dinner with my family and am as always grateful to my honey who took the onery children home, fed and bathed them, and put them to bed all while I schmoozed with my fam.
Oh and just because I know you love my book reviews, I have just finished reading all 4 Twilight books again and it is official, I can't pick a favorite. Each one is my fav while I am reading it, I like them all for different reasons. I have also watched every second of special features on the DVD and call tell you the audio commentary is not worth it (I like Robert Pattinson less after that too--not that there is anything bad about him, he just got annoying and I don't like his British accent) but the documentary "Script to Screen" I did enjoy. I just might be done with Twilight for a while, I have made the big leap to . . .The Host. :) Seriously though after that I am moving on from Stephenie Meyers I promise. Loves!

I love the potty at the table! I think he might have something there! :) I also loved them "flying" on the couch in their superhero jammies! What little cuties!

The potty at the table is priceless! I laughed out loud, which, according to my husband, I don't do often. I'm more of a smirker I guess.

We had fun at playgroup. Thanks for doing the seed planting thing. My girls loved it!

It took me awhile to get into The Host but I loved it when I was done!!!
