Good Advice

"Mommy?  I think maybe you should eat slower so that the baby doesn't choke on all that food going into your stomach."

"What do you mean?"

"Well, I think if you keep eating so much, so fast the baby is just going to get covered in all that food and choke."

Nobody should be surprised

that my darling Grace recently put her arms across her chest, stomped her foot and warned me, "You're busted mommy and I'm gonna bring you down."

Where have I been?

In case anyone who doesn't know me in real life still bothers to stop by...

Approximately four days (nights to be exact) after my last post, I threw caution to the wind and well.....see for yourself!

I'm 19 weeks pregnant with baby number three and just starting to feel like I'm keeping my head above water.  We're excited and feel very blessed.

Massachusetts...It's like living in Florida

or maybe southern New Jersey....

Last weekend we got almost two feet of snow.  Today, it was a balmy 60 degrees!  So we did what all New Englanders do when the sun peeks out to warm our cold bones.  We headed to the beach!  Sam wanted to pack a picnic and bring his bathing suit, but we're not that crazy or sun starved.  Yet.

I WISH she was looking at the camera for this one.  She won't.  Ever.
Sam and Grace got capes for Christmas.  I had visions of them running with their brightly colored capes trailing behind them...Unfortunately, there were 30 mph winds, which made the beach feel like it was about 30 degrees and also caused the capes to blow over their faces and wrap around their necks.  Oh well....
They did run though.....

Merry Christmas

There was no Twinkle Family Christmas card this year, but if there had been, it may have looked something like this...

Sugar Cookies

Play dates at my house usually involve a whole lot of running around and destroying things and not many scheduled or planned activities.  Most of the play dates we go to are much the same.  However, I do have a friend or two who organize wonderful, organized and thoughtful gatherings for our children.  For example, a cookie making party for the under 3 crowd....

Complete with gobs of icing...
Hersheys Kisses

and M&M's.

Lot's of M&M's.

And pre lunch cocktails for the mommies....
