Zucchini Bread

Several friends have given us zucchini fresh from their garden. This morning I tried a new recipe for a lower fat zucchini bread.  It is delicious!  I think I'll bake several loaves and freeze for school snacks & lunches.

My Scientists!

Bryce & Drew are loving their microscopes they got from Papa Rick & Gammie for their birthday.  Funny what spiders, ants, moldy bread, hairs from Daddy's leg and boogers look like under the scope!  The search is on for more disgusting objects!  Never a dull moment with twin boys!

Happy 6th Birthday!

Bryce & Drew wanted to have a baseball cake and play games with their friends for their 6th birthday. 6 friends joined us at "Richardson Field" for a fun afternoon of games, prizes and concession-type food!

We had popcorn, peanuts, cracker jacks & lemonade for snacks.

It started off sunny & hot, so when the kids arrived, they blasted each other with water guns until everyone was soaked! 

Then we played pin the ball in the mitt, twirl around the bat, pitching contest, balloon stomp, tug-a-war and hot potato with an inflatable baseball.  It started to rain so we came inside for hot dogs & fruit, cake & ice cream, and gifts.  The the boys went wild with nerf gun fights!  CRAZY!!!

Unfortunately, I never got a group picture!  I was too busy keeping track of 8 little kids!
Everyone got to take home a goodie bag that had Big League Gum, sunflower seeds, baseball trading cards, baseball tattoos & a baseball yo-yo.  I think everyone "Had a Ball!"

One more reason I'm thankful that I have twins...I ONLY HAVE TO PLAN 1 BIRTHDAY PARTY PER YEAR!!!

Our Birthday Surprise

Jimmy had been working for several days on a "landscaping project" to prepare Bryce & Drew's birthday surprise.  Before school on Friday they each opened up a new basketball and went out to the driveway to try them out when they saw this...

They were both super excited and shot hoops up until the minute they had to leave for school!  The night before, we put the boys to bed and then came out in the dark to put it together. 3 very sweet & generous neighbors came over to help us and stayed until 11pm!  We are so blessed!

Great gift idea, Jimmy!  This will provide lots of family fun, good exercise and great memories for years to come!

The Twin Bond

I am continually amazed at the tight bond that Bryce & Drew share.  These 2 little boys love each other like crazy.  They love to be together.  They still sleep in the same bed (even though they have their own rooms) & still take baths together. When watching tv, I ususally find them snuggled up on the couch together.  Jimmy and I pray that they will always remain "best fwends" and protect one another. 

I'm so thankful that God chose us to love & raise twins.  It is such a special relationship and an awesome blessing & honor!  I just love watching these two grow up together!
