  While watching the Today Show today they had a segment on how people few themselves, and what they focused on when thinking of themselves in the world. It was interesting that they put it in the context of shooting a “selfie”. That initially put me off from even wanting to watch the segment but […]

The morning of December 31st Andrew woke up with a slight fever and not seeming at his best. Shortly after we noticed what appeared to be a chick pox blister on his face, and then a few more on his body. By the next morning it was pretty clear he had a full outbreak of […]

It’s still amazing to me how different Christmas is when you have kids. In your own way, you become a kid again through their eyes. It’s great to see how excited they are, and this year more than any year in the past they were all counting the days down until Santa would arrive. This […]

More than any year in the past, the kids were really into getting the Christmas decorations out and up. Andrew asked me on more than one occasion when we were putting lights on the house (the real answer is maybe never, but I told him not this year). Also the kids has the great treat […]

A few weeks ago the kids received a surprise from the mail man. Left on the porch was a box of joy, from none other than Santa Aunt Shirley. It took us about a week to finally open the box (we knew we would need to set some serious time aside when they could indulge) […]

We are always trying new things to help Max progress and catch up what’s considered age appropriate. One of the areas I personally feel he needs the most help is with his speech. It’s pretty clear when you talk to him that he doesn’t master the English language at the same level that his twin […]
