this breaks a parent's heart

Our Poor Ellie is a bit under the weather. Looking at this picture makes me feel thankful beacuse in this whole year this is the first time our babies have been really sick. Let's hope and pray that our little Ellie heals up soon and puts on that cute smile of hers... we have missed it!

Staying home is fun these days!

The girls love playing outside, but we were so hesitant to let them on our deck because of the open space in between the railing. A friend of ours put plexi-glass onto the railing to keep the girls safe when playing outside as their birthday present. Thanks Monte! The girls are so happy now that they will be able to take over our deck too! And look the plexi-glass doesn't even block our view!

Lola loves it!

Ellie too!

Little Miss independent- times two... they don't even want me to brush their teeth anymore, they want to do it all on their own. Too much fun (I guess I can't complain that my girls love brushing their teeth).

They both love reading in our laps these days too... here is Ellie reading with daddy. It is so cute, she will go get a book and climb up onto Tony's feet and read with him. Can we say daddy's little girl or what?

I think we can rename daddy "The twin's train"
If I ever need to get anything done around the house all Tony has to do is say "choo...choo" and the girls up aboard and occupied for quite a while!

Fun Adventures!


Here are the girls at their first SDSU (their mom's Alma mater) basketball game. The crowd was over 10,000 this needless to say not all the people in the crowd were sleeping like that guy behind my head... it was so loud. Lola held on to me so tight the whole game and Ellie was simply looking around with that serious expression. At times Ellie would bust out a dance move or two when the cheerleaders would come out. Ellie just might be a cheerleader like her mom!

A train ride in Balboa Park!
Lola and Ellie went to the park with their friend Declan and their new friend Mateo. It was such a fun day, all the kids loved riding the train we will definitely have to go back very soon!

12 year... 365 days

Today was the girl's actual birthday. I took the day off work to spend it with them. The day was full and fun! Tony and I took the girls to the zoo, then to Wendy's for birthday frostys and home again for some presents. Needless to say they were exhausted. Likewise, Tony and I are looking forward to relaxing a bit after this long week of celebrations!
Ellie Francesca
Lola Grace

Sisters sharing their birthday today and always.

Off to the ZOO!
Ellie loved the petting zoo (as long as she was safe on daddy's feet)

Lola loved playing at the Elephant Odyssey.

and they both loved playing in the "mouse trap" tunnel
The girls caught up on some reading today too! They were exploring all their new birthday books!


Happy 1st Birthday Lola and Ellie

such a SWEET birthday!

( note: Lola is not dressed like Rudolph she fell and scrapped her nose the day before the party-yes mom put make up on her to try and cover it)
Yesterday was Lola and Ellie's first birthday Party!
What a fun day, we chose to do a "Sweet Shoppe" theme, it was a hit, the girls had a blast and I think all the guests had fun too. Thanks to all of those who helped us celebrate this extraordinary milestone in both the girl's lives and the lives of their parents. Tony and I had received the same advice many times from other parents with twins: "if you survive the first year, you can handle the rest" Well we made it through the first year alive and well and happier than we ever thought we could be, so here's to many more years of joy!
Cake and Cupcakes galore!

Candy Table... filled with more sweets than anyone could ever eat!

I made these balls of candy to hang all around to make the candy shoppe come alive.

Lola and Ellie playing with their friend Bailey

So many friends, Lola and Ellie are so lucky!

Aiden, Ella, Henry, Declan, Ellie, and Lola

We had a place for all the kids to play... too much fun!

the pictures can speak for themselves.

All the guests gathered around to see the cake mashing!
(it was crazy, but the girls were so stimulated by the attention they made it through)

They were soooo spoiled!
Lola and Emma, all smiles!

What a day! The girls were troopers, but now they just wanted their mom and some cuddles.

Funny Funny Story
I hope my daughter is not the only baby on the planet to have done this. I will have to say I did not see the action first hand, it was reported to me by Kathleen who watches the girls while I am at work on Wednesdays and Thursdays. She was giving the girls a bath like she does every time she watches them (they absolutely love the bath) and Ellie pooped in the tub. OMG... yes that is what I said she POOPED in the bath tub... with here sister right there. Kathleen had to act quickly to get the girls, the toys, and of course the poop out of the tub!
So sorry Kathleen... Ellie will have to make it up to you!
