I'm not sure what I was thinking sending all my Christmas pictures back with Ryan, but I'll post a few from my mom's camera. I will say (encouragement to those with twins younger than mine!) that this was the easiest time I have had with the twins yet! FINALLY! (Those people who said the first year was hard were totally full of it. Or else they had nannies.) I'm sure it's all the extra people around to help out with them, the constant entertainment of cousins, new toys and new places, and also just the fact that they're at the stage where they're slightly less hazardous and I finally don't have to watch them every single second that really made for a very enjoyable holiday. (Ok, until everyone got sick as we are currently.)

We got our white Christmas.

Santa found us.

Lots of new entertainment.

(Like stairs.)

New faces.

My kids actually got some attention.

Ryan and I participated in the family talent show.

And chubs found the chocolate cake.

Doesn't get much better than that.

Jen and Ryan were AWESOME in the family talent show! Yes, have Jen tell more!!!! What a crack up!

We are going to miss you guys after you leave! The boys are darling. Their smiles just melt your heart!!! This winding up part of trips is always so hard for me as I know there are only a few more days! We love you guys!!!!! It was good to see you Ryan! Hope you are enjoying a little quiet time because I think the boys are going to need extra attention after they get home. They'll be a bit bored. At least my boys always were. Yet what I am saying, you live in Maimi. They'll get to go outdoors again and will be thrilled! You guys are awesome!!!
