Catching Up

It’s been a while….I’m so busy I’ve been slacking and I feel terrible I have neglected to document the boys’ lives for the past month.
Daddy and I went to New Orleans for a wedding and I also spent a weekend volunteering for the Tulsa Moms of Multiples consignment sale.
School has started The boys LOVE school!  Drop off is so easy and they are now at the age where they tell me all about their day.
We have been riding our bikes out front a lot lately.  They like to ride from our driveway to the neighbor’s on the sidewalk and can pretty much coast the entire length!  I think they will be ready for real bikes come next summer.

My photography business is really picking up!  October and November will be busy months.
Daddy’s practice is SO busy as well.
Life is going so great and you boys are just growing and changing each day.

Sutton is currently obsessed (slightly scary obsessed) with DVD cases.  He carries them at all times and even sleeps with at least one.  Fynn is equally obsessed with cars.

We recently went out to Will Roger’s Home for a fun afternoon.

After we explored the area we loaded up to go to Claremore for some cupcakes!
Tiny Cakes is just down the road from where Grandma and Grandpa lived.  We took the boys there once with Grandma and she just loved spending time with them!  We miss her so much!

The boys are such a fun age and behave pretty good so I have been venturing out with them to do more things and it has been so great being at home with them more.

Until next post…

Party Time – 2nd Birthday

Posted in Birthday by

Well it has come and gone…it happens too fast.
It’s like your wedding day….you plan and plan and plan and then it seems like you blink and the day is over.

Saturday was the boys’ 2nd birthday party and it was a success!
For their first party I went OVERBOARD!  TRULY OVERBOARD!
The party last year was a pirate theme and we had everything from special hats for the boys to custom banners to treasure chest goodie bags….overboard.

This year I wanted to do something fun and out of the house so we narrowed it down to 3 places.  Two of those places were going to charge me EXTRA for twins.  That ruled those places out pretty fast.
We chose Tulsa World of Gymnastics.
It was perfect!  There was stuff for every age and the best part is they are not outrageously expensive.
The staff was helpful and the kids had a BLAST!

They have the trampoline walk-way, which the boys LOVE!
Here’s Sutton with Aunt Kim…she’s so great and so involved with the boys!

It took Fynn a few minutes to warm up enough to play.
Daddy had to show him how to roll down the mats….he looks like he is having fun!

My little monkey with his Kiki!  The theme was monkeys, Jason even designed the invitations….something that has become a tradition I believe.

Kisses for Papa O!
At one point Sutton went around to each person standing, watching them play and gave kisses… was so SWEET!

We took a break during the playtime to eat some lunch and have cupcakes.
Kiki, Jason’s mom, helped me bake, ice and decorate 48 cupcakes Friday night and they turned out SOOO GOOD!
I’ve had my fair share of the leftovers.

If you will recall from my Cupcakes post Fynn is my non-sweets child.  We have offered him cookies, cupcakes, pie, etc.  He always turns his nose up at it!
So, I gave him a vanilla cupcake thinking he MIGHT eat it.  YEP!
Maybe 2 will be the year he decides to like sweets.  Granted, they don’t get sweets very often but at least he enjoyed it on his birthday.
Sutton on the other hand is my SWEETS child!
He devoured his chocolate cupcake!

Once the party came to an end and goodie bags were handed out, we went to brunch at First Watch (MY FAVORITE!) with Jason’s family.
The boys were past exhausted but they did great.
On the way home they were dazed looking out the window.

After their short nap – we woke them so they could play with their gift from us before it got dark – we ventured outside to their new
It has two basketball goals and a slide…BOYS LOVED IT!

This will be so awesome once warmer weather arrives.
Sutton is such a Kiki’s boy!
He is my KISSING boy!

Here I am…I DO exist!

We even got to play some t-ball with Pappy!
Instead of gifts we asked the guests to donate to Emergency Infant Services.
Our kids are abundantly blessed and are in no need of anything so we collected items to deliver as well as cash donations.
Please visit their website for more information and to donate!
They did get a few gifts from family so we opened those at home.
They got some Oklahoma State University Bullet pillow pets!
They got an awesome car track, lots of art supplies and an easel.

My babies are not two just yet….Thursday is the actual day.

I’ll get more sentimental with that post!

Until next post…

MMMM Cupcakes!

Every week Jason’s grandma and grandpa bring us whole milk straight from the dairy farm for our boys.  It’s great knowing they are getting such pure, healthy milk every day.  Well Kiki wanted to take the boys to the actual dairy farm so we could try and see the cows.  We went but you couldn’t see much.  It was so neat seeing a family business still in action after so many years.

Since we were in town we picked up grandma and went to get cupcakes.  For those that know me well know that my children never gets sweets – no cake, no cookies, no candy – NOTHING.  The sweetest thing they get is a Cliff bar or fruit.  They had cake on their first birthday and since then they have had one cookie and a tiny bit of vanilla ice cream.  They still have not had chocolate.

Well Fynn does not like cupcakes.

He was SO not impressed.

Sutton on the other hand enjoyed his!

He seems pretty happy don’t ya think?

It’s funny because Kiki, Grandma and I were talking and on one hand I was kind of proud Fynn didn’t like the sweets but then the other part of me was wanting him to enjoy the yummyness that is CUPCAKES!

This does not mean, however, I’ll be giving sweets more often.  Maybe Halloween they can have a cookie.

I was sitting there in this sweet cupcake shop thinking how lucky my boys are to get to come on a random afternoon to sit and have a sweet snack with not only their Kiki but also their great-grandma.

I didn’t even get to know all my grandparents much less GREAT grandparents.

Until next post…
