Shabbat Parents!

Every Friday a different family volunteers to lead the Shabbat festivities at the Twins' school.  Being the Twins' birthday, it was a lock that we would be leading things this week.  Mommy even let Mia play hooky for the day to attend...  It's always so fun to watch Aubrey recite the prayers so seriously, while Brandon is making faces and trying to snatch bites of Challah bread!  Which pretty much sums up the difference in their personalities.  It was a great way to start a weekend of birthday festivities!!

Family Party for Twins!

The day before the Twins' birthday we had Grandma and Grandpa over for a little pre-birthday celebration!  After dinner and cake the twins opened gifts, which pretty much centered around their current obsession, STAR WARS...  It was so sweet to see Mia & Aubs getting along so well... 

Veritas Field Day!

Every year Mia's school, Veritas, has a Field Day where the kids get to lose their uniforms for a day, each class is renamed after a Greek civilization, and they participate in planned events from obstacle courses to the tug of war.  I'm proud to announce that for the second year in a row, Mia's class took first place!!!  She was so excited, and is so uber competitive...  Daddy always volunteers and runs the tug of war.  A great day of team work and victory!

Legoland Girls Trip!

As has become an annual tradition, Mommy & Mia spent a weekend in California at LEGOLAND for a little post birthday celebration.  It's a girls weekend that Mia loves, and Momma cherishes...  This year Auntie Caren brought cousins Gavin & Hadley down for some LEGOLAND fun.  Mia absolutely adores her cousins, and had an amazing time with Momma!
