8 months + Family Pictures

I just can't even believe that my babies are 8 months old already.
The even harder part, that always brings me to tears, is thinking this may be the last time I have little babies and I don't know why they had to grow up so darn fast! I can't even remember what it was like to hold a newborn! I think that's the hardest thing with twins is when you get them settled down or to sleep you just put them down because you can't hold both at the same time and your not going to just hold one of them so you end up holding neither and I just don't think you get that much mommy/baby bond time as you do with just one baby. It's bad, I am baby hungry already lol! Everytime I see a newborn I just want to hold it because my babies just are always on the move and are not cuddly at all! Lys was a real cuddler so I miss that!

And then there's this girl who I love the crap out of! She is growing up way to fast too! We just got an e-mail today from her Grandma D (who is a teacher) and she told us we need to start getting her registered for school next year!!!! Say Whaaa!?

I just can't believe my baby girl is going to be in school! She is such a good little helper tho. She has taken on mother role at home with the babies while i'm back at work. She helps papa feed them, she loves to play with them alot now that they interact with her. She is such a good big sister!


So I missed writing about Thanksgiving. Honestly we just kept it low key. It was nice. We went to Devin's brother Tanner's house at noon and had dinner and then went to my parents after and ate AGAIN. We played knock-rummy ( one of our favorite gambling games haha ). And then hit bed about 9:30. Having 3 young kids, i've decided, really wears on you. But I wouldn't trade them for the world :)

After thanksgiving we put up our tree. We love getting a real tree and decided since we have babies in the house who like to eat ANYTHING we would get a little one and put it up on a table.. I think it's a cute little tree, even tho I do miss a full size, I do like our little tree.

This was Devin & I's first christmas ornament we got for our first Christmas. We have been trying to keep it a tradition to get a family one with every addition. We have all our dogs ones, our kitties' ornaments and this years:

I'm sure alot of you know that I have been helping out at the mall with my sis-in-law at the Santa booth.. I will say.. you sure meet alot of grumpy parents around that time of the year haha! We aren't even high pressured at all! In fact we don't get a commission at all so we could care less if you got a picture or not but MAN some parents just freak out when you even ask! The saddest part tho, is those that think you HAVE to buy something to see Santa, so I always make sure to reassure them that they can still visit Santa without a picture. We are pretty lax there haha. Right now is the easy part tho.. 4 hours every Monday, Friday, and Saturday. After the 14 we are there ALL day! Luckily I still only work 4 every Monday & Friday but Saturdays are all day and the most bummer thing is having to work Christmas eve :( All well.. one year right?
Here's my kiddos 1 Free picture the booth lets us have haha:

Family Pictures

I know I like to pretend to be a photographer haha.. we just did these super quick because MAN IT WAS COLD! I wanted to wait till the first snow fall.. I think they turned out decent considering how hard it is to get 3 kids to look your way but I like how they turned out in the snow:

So now I finally have pictures for our holiday cards to send out :) The card turned out so stink'n cute I think :) I'm excited to get them printed and handed out!

If you want one let me know and i'll make sure to send one to you!

Happy Holidays!
