Peanuts and Pumpkins

So that when I emerge from the fog of having twins, I will remember what it was like and how wonderful it was, is and always will be

Hunting for eggs. And chickens.

Easter 2014

These guys! Stop…I can’t!

Forever Young

My sons,

You’ll always want to hold mommy’s hand, right?! You’ll always want me to sing you to sleep and rub your backs as you drift off to sleep, you’ll always call for me when you’re awakened in the night and won’t want me to leave until you have fallen back to sleep, you’ll never stop wanting to “shnuggle” every morning after you wake up, you will alway greet me with big smiles, laughter and joyful squeals when I pick you up at the end of the day, you’ll never stop insisting “mommy do it” — I will always be your everything, right?! Because you will always be mine.

The days are sometimes hard and parenting is not always easy, but you, Miles and Jack, make life wonderful. You brighten the darkest corners and fill our lives with with a love that cannot be measured. There is nothing as perfect as the two of you - nothing as perfect as the feel of your fingers curled around mind, the feel of you heart pressed against mine. There is nothing as blissful as hearing your laughs and watching you grow. I never want to forget this time, never. I wish I could say it as well as Jim Croce (look him up, he’s the real deal)

"Time In A Bottle"

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day till eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I’d save every day like a treasure and then
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do, once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty, except for the memory of how
They were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do, once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go through time with


I love you more than there are stars in the sky, my precious boys.

Love,

Mommy

As a general rule, I really hate spiders, but for these two cuties I’ll make an exception. #spiderkids
