Christmas Eve

Tom and Abby discuss Santa on Christmas eve. They also talk about gifts they'd like to receive tomorrow and show off their new PJs! They went to bed at 8pm on the dot and I have not heard a peep from them. Now why can't I get them to do this on a school night?

In this second video Tom and Abby are getting the carrots, milk and cookies for Santa and his reindeer. Notice how Tom insists on carrying the Santa plate and Santa cup. He's such a stinker!

Movie Night!

Tom and Abby were quite busy Friday afternoon. I heard them giggling and plotting in the living room with squeals of joy. They had decided to ask me if they could have movie night since it was the first night of winter break. They took their bath early, right after dinner and settled down sometime around 6:30 for "A Charlie Brown Christmas." They watched a couple more short shows and then it was off to their bedroom at 8pm. They laid on blankets, sat up against pillows, ate popcorn. They had so much fun! They love movie night because normally they don't watch TV that late in the day. It's a big special occasion for them!

Here are the twins enjoying their movie!

Abby Lost Her First Tooth!

I think it was only yesterday that Abby declared she had a wiggly tooth. Heck, it was only two days before that when she told us she felt her grown up teeth coming in behind her baby teeth on the bottom. Then all of the sudden one tooth was wiggly and today it is out! She was so proud of herself. She said she was sitting at circle time on the carpet and she felt it wiggle with her tongue and it came out! She said she held onto it and put it in her pocket when she had to do activities with her hands. She didn't even tell her teacher! I think Abby tells the story best.

T Minus 18 Days For the Man in the Red Suit!

Due to a scheduling conflict, we missed Santa at Apple on Saturday, so this is what we got.

The nondenominational winter scene. Abby was crushed. Tom didn't seem to mind. I like this picture the best.

Paul took the twins to see Santa at Downtown Plaza the next day. I stayed home and slept. What mother does that? I'm just so tired. I've been sleeping all night and then again from 9am-noon. I have to get up every day at 8 to do my first of 4 doses of IVs. Hopefully this will all end on Thursday. Maybe just in time for me to catch the virus Tom seems to have. You know, the fever, stuffy nose and cough kind. Yeah, exactly what got me into this predicament 4.5 weeks ago. But then again, it is the season of miracles and maybe I'll get lucky and this new virus will pass me by. I can hope!
