Yesterday was Dan's 33rd Birthday so I was able to get my last set of photos for my 365 Project. I feel like I just started it and I can't believe its over. I am really looking forward to my blog next year though. There will still be a lot of pictures but also a lot of other things, too. So stay tuned!

“All of life is a journey- which paths we take, what we look back on, and what we look forward to is up to us. We determine our destination, what kind of road we will take to get there, and how happy we are when we get there.”
I have skipped my post the past couple weeks because I was busy with Emma and Josh's birthday and then the holiday. Although I am almost done with my 365 project (one more day!) I still plan to keep up this post. I also have plans to change my blog to include more things other than Emma and Josh updates as we get into 2012.
1. They are constantly laughing at one another. They also have what appear to be "inside jokes" The newest joke is that one will say "one....two....grapes!" and throw their hands up in the air. Both then laugh hysterically. I have no idea where this came from.
2. Today is Dan's birthday but when you ask them whose birthday it is, they say "Birfday Jeesus!"
1. He actually went pee on the potty! We have a small frog potty and I try to put them on it before their bath. Josh has been asking for it more and last night, I put him on it and when he got up, he had peed!
UPDATE: Emma went pee on the potty tonight, too. Can't believe it!
1. She is getting a little bossy and likes to say "Emma turn" and "Emma do" a lot lately. We are trying to work on sharing and a lot of times she is good with it. But a lot of times she will do something like take a big bite out of a cookie and then "share" it with Josh!
Emma loves to dump out all of our Christmas cards and look through them. She also really likes one (I think its from my sister) that has a snowman on it. She brings it to me and says "so man" and then she carries it all over.
Dan has been begging me to let him trim the back of Josh's hair. He said it wouldn't really count for his first haircut since he was just going to take a little off the back so I finally gave in. He just trimmed up the back so it wasn't so long and he looks a lot better! Now, he doesn't have a mullet even though its still really short in the front.
Dan and Josh were kicking around the soccer ball in the hall and Dan said to him "keep your eye on the ball" (ya know, cause he is two and two year olds are so coordinated...) Almost immediately, Josh dropped down and put his little head and eye right on the ball. So precious.
We spent Christmas Day at my parents and then visited my grandma at the hospital. Emma and Josh looked so cute dressed up (although I forgot that I didn't have black shoes for Josh so he wore tennis shoes and I forgot black tights for Emma so she had leggings on!) They were so funny when they opened presents and would say "wow!" or squeal. They also tried to open everyone's presents. All in all, it was a nice day.

I took a couple days off from posting pictures since things were busy and crazy with Christmas. I have a bunch of pictures from Christmas Eve so I will post those first. We had a nice time having everyone over although my grandparents weren't there. My grandma got sick the night before Christmas Eve and is still in the hospital. We expect her home any day now but please keep her in your prayers.

I am a working mother of twins. I write a lot about my kids because, well, between work and trying to throw dinner on the table, they take up most of my time. Which is a good thing because my kids rock!
