Happy Birthday boys

Originally uploaded by dljordaneku.

The twins are now three. Well almost. Monday is their birthday but we have been celebrating all weekend. Chuck E. Cheese last night and a family birthday tonight. Their uncle will be over on Sunday and Monday is Build a Bear workshop night. They have been waiting to go there since summer. The biggest highlight of the night is when they opened their guitars and Gabe finally getting bubblegum. We told them they couldn't have any until they turned three. So everyone of course got them bubble gum and my parents got them a bubble gum bank.

Having twins over the last three years has been a challenge but it's been worth it. The boys are so different it's not even funny. They each have their own personally and we love them for it. When we found out we were having twins, we didn't know what to think but we made it so far. There were nights that first year that we didn't know how were going to make it. Gabe especially we so difficult at nights. He grew so much and ate so much that it must have been painful for him at times. We kept them on the same feeding schedule and sometimes at night we hated waking him up to eat. We got plenty of late night television. You know, those record sets for music that no body wants and tv shows that you had forgotten you had watched when you were a kid.

Anyway, now it's time for Christmas. I guess I will start on the outside lights this week and maybe even put the tree up tomorrow. We will see.
