Here's the things we've been up to lately!

Andrew moved into his big boy bed last weekend, and after a rough start, seems to understand now that we stay in our bed, and not get up and play as soon as mom and dad leave the room. Our baby is growing up!

Steve has been our head chef these days, especially at dinnertime as he picks up the boys at the sitters around 5pm, and I usually don't get home until 5:30 or so. But that doesn't mean he's on his own, sometimes he employs a few sous chefs! Here is the scene I walked into tonight on pizza night.

We found out this morning that we are expecting twin boys! They are in great shape, with perfect anatomy and identical weights (11oz). They are both head down, one right on top of the other in identical positions. Everything appears to be going perfectly so far!

Upper Twin

Lower Twin

The lower twin was a bit camera shy, with an arm thrown over his face for most of the session. Their heads are fairly close together so he kept getting his face blocked and we couldn't get a perfect shot - but we can see enough to tell that they look very similar!

We are very excited about our house full of boys, and Thomas and Andrew can't wait to meet their little brothers!

4 and a half!

Thomas celebrated his half birthday today with chocolate chip muffins and chocolate and peanut butter flavored krumkake! (Swedish cookies similar to pizelles)

Happy 4-1/2!

Christmas recap

We had a great trip to KS for the holidays, and since our return have been swept up in the return to school, work, laundry, and making our own meals and cleaning up after ourselves again!

We spent a fun week at the Gustafsons house, and got to go ice skating twice, as well as spending time with the Honas family and Grandma Bonnie, eating great meals, and celebrating Christmas. We also spent two nights at the lake house with the DeWeeses and Siscos, ringing in the New Year and also enjoying fantastic food.

Picture album to follow shortly! Happy New Year!
