How did this happen?
Where did the past two years go?
I know I have lots of memories of all the amazing things you have accomplished over the past 2 years. But when I close my eyes, I remember like yesterday the day you were born. I remember holding you for the first time and sobbing uncontrollably with joy that overfilled my heart. I can see you trying so hard to focus on my face as I spoke to you and feeling like you knew I was your mommy. I remember waking up smiling to the sounds of your cries when we first brought you home. I still couldn't believe you were mine and you were home. Your first smile, your first laugh, your first night you slept alone in your big girl bed. They all seem like yesterday in my head. Now you are running all over the place with so much excitement and fascination at the world before you. I feel like I just closed my eyes and here we are. My babies are not babies anymore. You are toddlers. Little people. Beautiful little girls. My sweet little babies you will always be.

Then we were off on our 2 hour drive towards the beach. We met up with more family for food, egg hunts and fun. The girls REALLY enjoyed the hunt this year. They were all about their eggs. There was some comparing of baskets to see who had more eggs and some egg stealing. They were even allowed to eat quite a bit of candy that the Easter Bunny had filled their eggs with. This was a BIG treat for both girls because Mommy doesn't really let the girls have candy. And they finished off the day with a cupcake for dinner. Why stop just at the candy is our moto.
It was a beautiful day. We had a wonderful time.
Happy Easter everyone!

We had a red eared slider named Franklin aka Big Frank. She was 7 years old. My brother bought her for me in downtown LA. She was the size of a quarter when I got her. We used to sit her on our dog's nose and take silly pictures of her. She got much bigger over the years. I got her right before I got our dog Ashes who was the 'baby' of our house before we had the twins. The girls liked Franklin. They enjoyed watching her swim and seeing the fish swim around in her tank before she gobbled them up. I'm not too sure if they will really notice that she is missing. We most likely won't say anything to them as they are too young to understand anyways but it got me thinking. Of course I am sad that Frank died. I got teary-eyed for a few minutes when Tony called to tell me. But she was just a turtle. She didn't really interact with us. Once she got bigger she would snap at us so we stopped taking her out of her tank in fear of getting bitten. Ashes on the other hand is also going to be 7 this year. My girls LOVE Ashes. And Ashes LOVES the girls. She is a big dog, a lab mix, so we will lucky to get another 7 years out of her. She really is an important part of our family. After all she was our first 'baby'. I know 7 years is a long time. It just got me thinking.
Hope Turtle Heaven is treating you well Big Frank.
You will be missed.
This my crazy husband dancing around with Frank on his head. I can't even begin to explain this photo without our family sounding completely insane. :)

Well last night in an attempt to teach my girls how to help mommy wash their sweet tiny bodies in the bath tub I was singing a made up song and dancing out (or more so gyrating my body in awkward positions) scrubbing motions as they watched me hoping they would follow suit. Addison was quite pleased with my performance. She copied many of my gyrating movements and laughed along the way. Charlotte on the other hand sat and stared. At the end of my performance she placed her perfect little finger in front of her perfect little lips and "Ssshed" me. Apparently my loud obnoxious behavior was distracting her from her otherwise peaceful bath experience. I will remember this the next time I am trying to take a peaceful shower and she is standing outside the shower door screaming for juice or snacks.
