Sweet 16

Where does the time go??
I think I have been saying that alot lately!
My twinners are officially 16 years.

Well, technically, they aren't 16 until it is
6:50 and 6:53 am Mountain standard time.

Induced at 40 weeks...15 hours of labor....
normal delivery ( not c-section)...
Lunden comes out a 7 pound 2 ounce little girl and
Brennen, who is breech comes out FEET first. Weighing in at 6 pounds 14 ounces.

I have been SO blessed having these two in my life!!

I just wanted to add some photos from the past..I need to get some baby photos up.
Digital wasn't really the thing back then. Makes it harder.

I love you both so much!!!
Happy Birthday!!

December makes me feel this way...

I can honestly say I am ready for the Christmas/winter break. No school.
Did I really just say that?

We are heading north next weekend to spend Christmas and New Years with my parents in West Virginia/D.C./ N.Y.C.
We are looking forward to the seeing all of the holiday decorations/ Christmas tree at Rockefeller center/ decorated store windows and doing some shopping!
Seeing the White House decorated for the holidays is always a treat as well.
Many fun holiday traditions are to be expected too...
the kid's decorating a gingerbread house with Grandma, making sugar cookies for Santa, Christmas shopping for eachother and meeting somewhere special/fun for lunch and going to see Christmas lights.
There is also a better chance for a white Christmas up there than there is down here!

Also, my twins will be turning 16 on the 20th!
So,birthday fun is in store!

I just wanted to update and share some random photos from this month so far...

It's Christmas time!

I love decorating my home for Christmas.

I'm one of those that has a tree in just about every room.
Each with a different theme.
Even my kid's all have a Christmas tree in their room.

Merry Christmas!

My Mom has been gifting me with White House Christmas ornaments for years.
I literally have a whole tree full which is why I dedicate one tree just for them.
They are so gorgeous and the details are amazing.
I can't wait to see what this years ornament looks like!

 This is the tree Santa leaves presents under. It's my country/crafty tree.
Lot's of wooden ornaments like ice skates, snowflakes, ski's,etc.
