Fun Weekend

Blog changes ahead ... click here for details. I need emails from anyone wishing to still read along ... (this will be at the top of all new posts until the change goes into effect)

First off, I would like to discuss new names for the twins. In an effort to be a bit less "out there" with all our info (names, address, social security #s) I am going to be using nicknames for the kids. Our little lady has been called Boots since she was born. I have NO IDEA why. I think my mom started it. But it has nothing to do with Dora the Explorer. But that being said, she is Boots, Bootsy, Lady Boots, etc. And from now on, she will be referenced as Boots on this site.

My man has a million nicknames. He is often called Bubba so I considered using that on this site. My sister called him Butterball when he was a baby, which morphed into Butters (um, South Park anyone??) and then turned into McButters since Chrissy is a Grey's Anatomy fan. She even bought him a onesie that says "Who needs McDreamy when you can have McButters?" ... but most recently hubbie and I have been calling him "the Moop". I'm not really sure why. He just looks like a Moop. He's chubby, and he walks around like a drunken sailor. So, he is the Moop. She is Boots. Going forward, they will be called these names only (or variations of these names, Mr Moop, Lady Boots, etc). Have I confused you yet??

We had a very nice weekend ... Friday night my sister had a jewelry party. There weren't a ton of people there, but we ate some yummy food and I ordered some pretty pieces. I offered to have a party in September, so I can save up some money to spend some more. hehe.

Saturday started out as it always does. Aunt Chrissy and Uncle Anthony arrived nice and early with Dunkin' Donuts in hand for the parents and the kiddies. They get so excited when see her with the DD bags ... and she always brings them munckins to eat. We spent some time on the Thomas the Train that Aunt Chrissy bought them for their birthday. Did I mention that my sister non-stop buys these kids things?? Here is a few pics of the train ... Did I mention I am running out of rooms in my house to put these kids toys? Here's a pic of the whole train with the track.

Here is the Moop riding his train ...

And the Boot giving what we refer to as the "Stink Eye"...

Saturday afternoon we went to our friends house. These are our best friends that we did our big cookie baking extravaganza with over Christmas. Their son Kai is like 6 weeks younger than the twins. They also have a beautiful daughter Ali (we are her GodParents) who will be 6 in July!! It was such a nice time catching up and getting all the kids together. We did attempt to get a group kid shot. It was ... um ... interesting. At one point Kai leaned over playing with his sister, and him and the Moop bonked heads. Well, Mr Moop LOST IT! He just wouldnt stop crying ... here is the evidence!

On Sunday me and the hubbie went to see the new Indiana Jones movie. I really liked it. It was no Iron Man, which I LOVED, but it was still fun and a good time. I LOVE going to the movies. We don't get to go nearly as much as we did pre-twins. Ah, those were the days of sleeping late and doing what we wanted ... those days will be back... in 18 years.

Sounds like you all had a wonderful weekend!

Oh my...I'm digging that little Thomas train track! Jake looks so adorable sitting on it! Your sister is soooo good to the twins!

I think that's wonderful that you both were able to sneak out and see a movie together. :o)

Hi there! I just found your blog today from twinstuff and after reading a few of your posts on ts, I realized that we had a lot in common and I decided to stop by. I just started blogging recently and have found it incredibly therapeutic. I didn't want to be a "lurker" so I figured I would "out" myself (in addition to you changing your site).

Congratulations on your twins and their first year of life. My twins will turn 3 in July and we have shared many of the same adventures.

Thank you for the opportunity to read about you and your wonderful family. Aren't we lucky to have such wonderful families?

Thanks for the comment! I like the nicknames Boots and the Moop. They are very very original (and Bubba is my son's nickname. :))

Oh, the Thomas train looks way cool - but, you are right, it looks like it takes up a lot of room!!!

Anne said...

Your kids are adorable!! I love to see pictures of them!

Jen said...

Wow, that is one FUN train! And the stink eye is way too cute! In an ornery toddler sort of way, of course.

I like the nicknames. I named mine "Little Monster." :)
