Leap Day on its Way!

Wow, here we are leap day.... February 29th and my babies are 10 months old! We have been preparing for their 1st birthday, which has been a lot of fun! I have made a cake stand, birthday pennant, and working on birthday outfits! We have decided not to pick a theme, but just use a fun color scheme. It's funny because we have a million ideas for future parties but just felt they were all much more fun for when the kids were older.
Brett has been pouring his life into the "ground breaking" project in the web world. He says he is finishing up as of tomorrow. Hopefully that is the case, because I have definitely got a good taste of what it would be like if I were a single mother.
I hope to post some pictures of my cake stand, but that will require some motivation. Today our counselor informed me we only have 10 Mondays left in the school year, woohoo! I can't wait for summer, in the meantime I am looking forward to our trip to Chicago in a few weeks!

So far this new year has been full of new endeavors! The twins not only are crawling EVERYWHERE, but are also pulling up on things. Siddalee loves to get on the laptops and bang around, daddy always says she trying to set up her own facebook account. Max loves crawling under/through things. His favorite places are under Joy's coffee table and under our exersaucers or chairs. They are both so much fun! They are happy, funny, and just too darn cute!
We finally made it to church after several weekends in a row of failed attempts. They kept falling asleep or throwing massive fits (because they were tired) right as it was time to head out the door. This time we tried for the 9:00 am service and made it! They loved playing in the nursery!
I am working away on getting ready for their first birthday. I made a mock up skirt for Sidda last night... thank goodness I decided to do a practice skirt, it is way too big! I have also decided to attempt a vest for Max. Trying not to leave my big guy out :)
My next task is to make a banner to hang up on their big day. I bought some paper to match the colors of their party now I just need to get started.
Want something like this just can't make it too girly!
