Merriest Christmas!!!


We truly had WAY too much fun at the Smith house this Christmas... More details to follow.  But here are a few pictures to give you an idea.  Enjoy!

 Oh Kevin....

The Babes had a BLAST in the wrapping paper.  It reminds us of when we first put them into their biweekly bath, only no one got soaked in the process!

We hope you all had a good one!  Sending love your way today and always...

Snow Bunnies

It's a SNOW DAY!!!!  Just last week Noah was bemoaning the fact that we may not have a white Christmas... Then Ta-Da!  Blizzard warning last night and snow until sun up. :)  I just couldn't wait to get the babes out in it after breakfast.  First encounter with snow is priceless.

Big Brother keeping them warm!

Don't worry.  I didn't keep them out there but for a few minutes and they were frozen!!!  Next year it will be snow boots, bibs, mittens, and frozen cheeks all the way. In the meantime, I think they're content to watch Brother play through the window while the fire warms their little tushies. :)

Quiet Moment

My big BIG B-I-G project lately has been to go back through all the pictures and videos of this last crazy year and organize them, back them up, and try to share some special times through our blog and other outlets. :)  It's been very therapeutic for me to look through these thousands of files and soak in the sweetness of the babes and Noah again and again.  I came across a series of photos that I tried to take with my phone one morning after a feeding.  Noah was at preschool, Kevin was at work, and Mom was out running my errands for me.  I found myself in a quiet moment with the babies...

It was heavenly.  I can still smell them under my chin and feel their breath on my cheeks.

BTW - the photo at the very top is one of my absolute FAVORITES.  I tandem nursed the babies until they were about 3 months old (why I stopped is another post... coming soon).  At one point I looked down and they were HOLDING HANDS!!!!  It was so precious.  I'll never forget it.

Enjoy today.  It is my birthday and I am enjoying the things that matter most. :)
