Some may think I am crazy, some may even say it to me...but yes I am putting my huge Christmas tree up with all of the gorgeous ornaments too!!! I have a bit of an obsession with my tree, it must go up before Thanksgiving, we must decorate it as a family, each child must place the star on top with assistance of daddy, so yes we do it three times and of course we get a picture of each time, and it must look just so! Okay I will give on it looking perfect because I am not completely naive to think that my lil' twinadoes are going to look not touch, but it will go up and it will be fantastically beautiful. So this is my plan of attack...STAGES! I will put it up in stages and maybe they will let it be. I put it up yesterday during nap time, they woke up midway through and scattered all the parts about the house, but it got up and they didn't disturb it much. Today during nap I thought gee they did so good I last night and today so I will add a few lights, hmmm maybe I jumped the gun. So the lights did make it a bit more tempting, but still I am impressed they aren't completely taring it apart. I think I will wait a few days to put the second batch of lights and the ornaments on, so as much as it is bugging the heck out of me, my tree will sit unfinished for a few more days. It may not be done before Thanksgiving, but it is up and we will get there and you can bet I will be posting pictures of it!!! YEAH FOR FAMILY HOLIDAY FUN!!!

Smell of cupcakes and cake in the air, lots of extra looks of amazement, the twins will be 18-months-old tomorrow!!! Every month older they get, and every milestone they hit is a constant reminder of how fast time goes, and how the little babies are dissapearing and growing into little boys so fast. Dylan and Ashton have went from two tiny babies to crazy busy toddlers, that are walking, climbing, gabbing away, and exploring everything in this last year and a half, and I can't help but wonder what the next year and a half have in store for us. What they will learn, what they will like or not like, just amazing how much they have changed and grown in such short time. So there are a few people who think that I am a bit over the top when I made a cake and we even had party hats when they turned 6-months-old, then we did a huge party when they turned a year, and now we are having another little party for them turning 18-months. Just a fun thing to do to celebrate and I will jump at any reason to have a little party fun!!! So today the preparation, tomorrow the cake and candle fun just the five of us!!! Pictures will come tomorrow!
