Giving Thanks!

I had the boys write (well I wrote) what they were thankful for this morning. It was funny to me what they picked and that I didn't make the list on Nicolas's!!!! Their list is below.

I am thankful for many wonderful blessings in my life but I wanted to write the first 5 thoughts pertaining to what I am thankful for in respects of having twins ( other than of course having two beautiful, healthy loving little men):

1.) Days when I actually have energy to get through without feeling cranky.
2.) Quiet moments when they do not fight.
3.) Binkies (Pacifers) when the whining will not stop.
4.) Something to do during the morning with them or days I have help.
5.) Hearing their laughter,seeing them hug/hold hands...their love for each other.
6.) Having the same set of toys to reduce their fighting over things!

They Don't Call It The Magical Kingdom For Nothing!!!

All I can say about going to Disney World with 2 ½ year olds was it was one of the BEST DAYS of my life! It was so amazing and the kids LOVED IT!!! It is a day I will cherish forever, relaxing and so much fun! You really do feel like a kid again through your child’s eyes and boys eyes were sparkling! There were no meltdowns (except when Nicolas hit his head at lunch) but that only lasted a minute and the day was pure heaven! We went on so many rides and stayed almost all day. I brought my crappy camera so that is the only thing, the photos suck, red eye, shots but you get the gist of it!

The parades and shows were great seeing everyone dance and sing with the characters. Not to mention perfect weather. Does this sound like a Martha Stewart Blog yet about Disney? I am just shocked that it went so well, especially with twin 2 year olds. Christian was a trooper and was stayed awake ALL day with zero meltdowns. Nicolas fell asleep for about 30 minutes in his stroller but was ready to hit the bigger rides after that. The great part was that they walked most of the day, we just put them in the stroller as we were going to one section to the other because I wanted to hit as many sections as possible. I just couldn't’t get over how easy it was! It was funny because after the last float on the evening parade, the tail end lady called out to the boys personally “You are one cool dudes”! If you go – 2 ½ is a great age!
