We spent the day at the museum with their new first friend, Zoey. They got along just great. It was so cute watching them look at each other, and play. It was so fun we are planning another trip together, maybe the zoo next time.
We went Morril Hall and spent the day, and also saw the planetarium show. The twins loved it they kicked back and just watched. Ashton at one point started laughing. They had a good day out, they also met their first friend their age.
Dylan and Ashon are always wanting what the other has. This yellow ball is the top of a stack toy, and is one of Dylan's favorites. Dylan always manages to find this toy and he will sit and play with it forever, but Ashton thinks he wants it now too.

We had a wonderful Christmas with our family. We had lots and lots of snow so that kept us home most of the time, but it was great all just being together. I loved Jeff having all that time off, it was a great vacation for me *laugh*. He has now went back to work, and I tell you did I have a awakening. First of all I had for got how difficult it was caring for the twins on my own, secondly since the time Jeff took off work and went back they had became mobile. Really in need of a baby cage now for sure!!! A little update on the twins...Dylan has really discovered how all his toys work, he is suck a thinker and investigator. He is scooting, pulling his self to his knees along things *so close to standing, for sure in the next couple days*, he is so vocal. He says mama, dada, and nana, and several other yammerings. Dylan is also my lil giggle box, he has such a cute smile and giggle. Ashton is my Mr. On The Go, he is crawling all over the place, pulling his self up on everything, and is now also walking along the couch. Ashton is saying mainly only dada and squealing like crazy. He is my goofy one, he gets all ornery and snorts and laughs and bounces. He also likes to pick on Dylan, he pulls his hair and pinches him *sad*, he also pinches mom and dad. They have had to be separated into their own cribs, and no longer lay by each other and hold hands :( now they don't hold still long enough to snuggle. Oh one thing than neither of them have mastered is to sleep through the night, now that will be a trick that impresses mommy the most!!! It has been a long 8 months, and they have grown so fast, but it is so great to see them sit and play and interact with each other. They are also really into big brother Ethan, they watch every move that he makes, and they love to play with him. They play mega blocks, and with the baby toys, and they also chase him in the walkers. You just wait big brother until they are up on their feet, they will be chasing you and into all your toys.
Here is a picture taken of us all celebrating Christmas at Nana and Papa's (Jeff's parents). We had to postpone our Christmas with them 3 days because of the blizzard. It was a fun day full of good company, good eats, and fun times!!!
Every little boys needs some maga blocks. This was a gift I picked out for Dylan and Ashton to play with with Ethan. They do too, okay mommy likes to play too. It is really a cool table and we all build together, well we build the twins mainly just crash it down.
This was by far one of their favortie gifts, way to pick it out daddy!! It plays music, lights up, and is a push toy too. They love playing with all the shapes and taking stuff on and off of it. Any day now and they will be ready to walk behind it too.
