Last week we had some crazy, warm weather around here. I mean, come on, it's January and we're wearing shorts and t-shirts to play outside.

Here's a little fact about my twins. They have language that only they understand but most of their play is communicated my other means. Gestures and looks are what they use. Without words or noise they can begin a game with the other. I think that's pretty amazing! (the game above started this same way) Incredible.

Sunday morning, David and I woke to the twin putting "breakfast" together in the kitchen. By themselves. It wasn't anything I wanted to deal with after just waking but I'm glad now that David suggested taking a picture. Sadly enough though, this is the only one I took. Like I said, I wasn't feeling inspired creatively at this time. The carton of eggs above was a brand new, one dozen eggs the night before. You would have gasped in horror if you'd been the one to discover such a mess. Eggs on the floor, in the dish drain, sitting in sippy cups...........an absolute mess. One day, though, I know they are going to be really good a cooking breakfast. lol You have to start somewhere!

I'm totally loving this reusable Starbucks tumbler.
A friend of mine gave it to me for Christmas. It lets me get free coffee for the entire month of January. Amazing!
I've seriously had a few days where I packed up the boys just to take a drive to Starbucks to get my free coffee. The best gift....... seriously!

What's your favorite gift?


  1. Emily, I have been so spoiled this year! For my birthday and Christmas I was given: a Canon Rebel t3i, a KitchenAid Mixer, and the ice cream maker attachment!

  2. Kylie, Wow! That's some serious spoilage! Good for you! :o) Thanks for sharing!
