Mikayla, Brooke, Hunter and Ethan
Age 2 years
And I thought it was hard to get two 2 years old to stay still for a picture. Nothing compared to getting four 2 year olds together for a picture. Putting them all the then empty boat sandbox at least kept them together. Getting them all to look was a different story.
Head on over to Twinfatuation to see some more picture memories.

And of course there were many that will never get the oppurtunity to grace a Christmas card but will now get their time to shine.

I did not procrastinate writing my paper that is due in class tomorrow night.
I did not spend all afternoon trying to get good pictures of the boys for Christmas cards and I did not put off cleaning the kitchen till this morning.
I did not eat most of the bag of toasted coconut marshmallows in one day.
Check out the list over at MckMama's to see what else her faithful followers have not been doing.

1. You are the best mommy or daddy in the world for your child - Regardless of what the experts or anyone else says, in your child’s eyes you are their one and only. If you can live up to that kind of love and acceptance, you’ll be happier for it.
2. You trust your gut - Most of us try not to get too worried or upset by the proliferation of news stories about lead-poisoned toys or tragic stories of kidnapped children, but it’s not very easy. When push comes to shove, your gut can be your guide. If you feel more than a tingle of doubt, you’ll do the right thing by your child. You’re wired that way.
3. You give the best love you know how to give - Love isn’t perfect or always kind, but you want to be a good parent and you try every day to be the best parent you know how to be.
4. You feed them every day- Not always meals with enough vegetables or fruit, but you feed them, and you worry about their health. And that makes you a good parent.
5. You smile at them, beam even, and they make you proud - When you smile at your child (and you know you do, often) you are transmitting your love and tenderness. Kids are sponges and they feel every iota of that sweetness.
6. You teach them about wonderful things — You fill their heads with the wishes of childhood — Santa Clause, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny and other wonderful creatures. Even if they don’t believe you, their eyes light up with the spark of imagination.
7. You love them unconditionally, even when you don’t like them very much - Most kids know that you love them no matter what. Even when they have tantrums in the grocery store and hit their sister or brother and refuse to eat their dinner. Even then you love them deeply.
8. You comfort them when they’re scared - Monsters, bad dreams, and things that go bump in the night hold no power over the comfort of your arms and your murmured reassurance.
9. You want your child to be happy - Almost more than anything else, you want to see evidence that your child is happy, well-adjusted, and secure. You want this for them more than you want it for yourself.
10. You are their one true love - For so many years, you are your child’s sun, moon, and stars. You are the keeper of their small open hearts, their only one. This essential truth, when fully appreciated, makes parenting the most fulfilling thing you’ll ever do.
I did not bribe the boys with candy corn so that I could get pictures of them on their first day of preschool.
I did not skip lab on Thursday to go to Ethan's Halloween party after I did not skip it on Tuesday to take him to his first day of school.
I did not send Hunter to school with a sore throat on Friday because he really wanted to go and her ate his breakfast great. And I did not wonder about taking him to the doctor when he came home from school and passed out on the couch and had a fever when he woke up.
I did not lose his medicaid card and did not take quarters out of their piggy back to pay for his prescription.
