far and few.

I really suck at updating our family blog now days. Sorry about that! I am finally able to see light at the end of the 'underwear' tunnel. Finnaaaaaaalllllyyyyyyy! 

Here's what the kids have been up to as of late...

I don't know the name of these toys, but they are fantastic. 
I've never seen my kids sit still for so long before! 
They are sponge animals squeezed into a pill capsule which 
dissolves when put into warm water, leaving a fun shaped sponge toy
for the kiddies to play with. 






Cuppy Cakes.

Both the boys are different when it comes to eating sweets. London completely demolishes any sort of treat. I'm talking, finishing a popsicle in 4 bites. Whereas Cash will slowly take his time, first eating the frosting, then moving onto the cake part. And with popsicles, London could eat 4 within the time it takes Cash to finish 1. 




Littlest Lulu.

My good friend, Jen Herem, took Lucy's one year pictures. 
I wanted to put her in a Littlest Lucy dress, for memories sake.  
I love everything about my Lucy. She's my little buddy in this busy world.
She turns one on June 25th. I will post more pictures from the shoot later.

mud Lunchables, anyone?



April showers brings muddy toddlers.

Snack time gone bad. They took mud pies to a whole new level. It doesn't matter how many times I tell my boys, "Do not play in your sandbox today, it's muddy. If you do, you will have to come right back inside. Do you understand?" Their answers are always the same, "yes, mama." They go outside, play around (eyeballing the sandbox) for a good 15 minutes, each time they get near it, I poke my head out and tell them to GET AWAY FROM THE SANDBOX! They do. But just as I get comfortable, thinking they've listen to me, I look outside to find them sitting in mud, flinging it at each other, and burying their little legs in it. And somehow, one of them always ends up eating it or getting it in their eyes. These are those, "I told you so" moments for me. "Yup, didn't mommy tell you not to play in the sand?" Doh.





Boys and their toys.

They discovered Zoobles....for two days. They came, they saw, mom bought them more to play with, and of course, they have been forgotten. RIP Zoobles. They have not been touched since those two days.


Ah, yes. Robots. The phenomenon. I don't know when or where, but somehow, my boys became obsessed with robots. Below, I ran out of activity ideas one day and helped them make their own robots. Tin foil, empty toilet paper rolls, tape, markers, empty egg carton, and a straw. They had a blast!


Easter weekend.

We spent Saturday at Grandpa and Grandma Salisbury house. They did an Easter egg hunt, dyed eggs, and walked away with some pretty cool toys.

I love Cash's face. Excitement at it's best.


Yep. They are using Walmart bags. We forgot their baskets. Parents of the year!



Grandma Greene's birthday bash.

It was my mom's birthday on the 20th of April. I can't put into words how much I love my mom. She's amazing and I'm lucky to have her as my example. The boys loved blowing out the candles. My mom is incredibly tan, right? She had just gotten home from two weeks in Mexico and 1 week in Mesa, AZ. It's not fair.




Randomness.

And lastly, it wouldn't be a post without some randomness. Below are some new additions to the kids nurseries. Bunting flags are my new favorite decorations.




Long enough post for you? Ya, me too. I am going to take a nap now. Thanks for stopping by!

Probably one of the cutest things....

Every once in a while, the boys will do this...

It's always completely random but every time they do it, my heart melts and I'm reminded of how lucky I am to have twins.....and how lucky they are to have each other.

Busy busy busy.

Yaaaaah, it's been a whole month since I last posted. I thought about posting probably 20 times, but each time I forgot. It's the thought that counts, right!? Wrong.

Here's what we've been up to the last couple of weeks...
- I started working again at my old job (accounting) ~12 hrs a week.
- Working on my clothing biz - Littlest Lucy (I am posting some cute creations on Sunday, so be sure to check out my Littlest Lucy Blog!
- Te has 3 business projects he's been working on. It's pretty funny, we have a schedule set up where we work on opposite days of the week. That way, one of us is always able to hang out with the kids.
- Lucy is 9 months and growing fast. She's clapping, dancing, doing a little bit of baby signing, and learning to cruise around our furniture standing up.
- The boys are learning to speak in full sentences, learning their ABC's, colors and 123's, and obsessing over Zoobles and robots.
- Te and I just barely had a "stay-cation". We went to the Grand America and relaxed for a night. We watched movies, ate room service and did a lot of sleeping. I love me some sleep!

Here are some pictures from March. The boys '2 year pictures' were taken by Jen Herem Photography. Instead of a staged setting, we wanted these pictures to capture our boys doing the things they love at this age. They are growing so fast, I want to be able to remember them at these ages. I think these pictures will do just that. Jen managed to capture everything we wanted and more. I can't say enough good things about her. A+++












Be sure to keep checking back! I will be posting some Littlest Lucy products in the next couple of days! I can't wait to share them with all of you!

Play dates & Playgrounds.

-Play date with the Marriotts-

We recently had a play date with our friends, Molly and Mina. Since they live in Oregon now, when they come into town, we consider ourselves lucky if they can pencil us into their busy schedule. We got to see them a couple hours before they left town and every time we hang out, I wish they would move back. I want Mina and Lucy to grow up together but...until that time comes, we will take what we can get! Love you guys.

Londy and Mina

Mina and Lulu - both are 8 months old.

Not sure why, but I loved this picture of Lulu.
Props to Molly for snagging all these pictures.

The whole gang.


-Outside fun-

Londy found himself a treasure. (broken foam mallet)

Ah yes, the transformer phase. My mom has this habit of getting them a new transformer at least twice a week. That's all fine and dandy except for I never played with transformers growing up, so when the boys ask me to 'transform' them, it is like I'm playing with a rubix cube. I am never able to do it. I've started pointing them in daddy's direction. :-)

Lucy loves being outside and watching the boys play. The dress she's wearing was my most recent project. Took me around 3 hours to make that dress (not the coat), but I did it! No pattern necessary. I'm planning on making many more for the new business I'm starting up. A kid's clothing line! I'm really excited about this, so any free time I get, I have been working on it. I'll post pictures as I go.

Londy at the playground.

Cash has been teething lately. His fingers are always in his mouth.

Lucy and dad.
