Today is Christmas!!

Okay, I just have to start off today by saying that today is soooo exciting! It's like Christmas for me. My sister AND my sister-in-law are both in the hospital today having their babies. One is having a boy, and one a girl, wasn't that nice of them to create some same-gender friend/cousins for my twins? And how funny that they are being born on the same day. Too bad they are at different hospitals. And too bad for both of them that they get cafeteria Thanksgiving dinner instead of the real thing. But it will be SO worth it.
Life is so good right now. We are past the first hard stage. I know there are many hard stages to come. Teething. When the twins get mobile. Feeding solid foods. And the list goes on. But right now we are in an easy, fun, awesome stage and I'm just going to enjoy every minute of it! Last week I got to go out FOUR times, three of them were dates with Brandon. That must be some sort of record for us. I think going out helped me to feel like life is normal again or something.
First, Brandon took me on a date two Saturdays ago. We ate at PF Changs and went shopping. It was awesome. All three kids slept the entire time we were gone.
Then last Tuesday Brandon's dad got us court side seats with dinner and halftime popcorn and all the good stuff. We didn't have a babysitter though so Brandon let me go with Mckinley and he stayed home with the twins. How sweet of him.
We had a blast. Mckinley loved Cosmo and always wanted to know where he was. We tried to get a picture with him but he was part of a performance so he wasn't paying attention to us.
The twins are getting so big! Of course this picture makes them look tiny compared to their giant sister, but trust me, they are getting bigger. 
Mckinley playing on Brandon's phone while we waited for dinner at Smokehouse.
Oh, I just can't get enough of these two.
Tyler started smiling at 5 weeks old. His smile is so stinking cute.
My mom and dad were babysitting my brother's 5 kids for a week and we added 3 kids to the mix for a night while we went and saw the new Twilight movie.
Mckinley is obsessed with stuffed animals and this is what she was doing at their house while we were gone.
Little miss Kallie finally started smiling too. It is so fun! Her poor bald head though...

So when the babies were about 6 weeks old I weighed them on my scale at home and they were both over 8 pounds. Now at 7 weeks they were both over 9. I can't believe how fast they are growing! Tomorrow they will be 8 weeks old and next Wednesday we have their 2 month check up and shots. I'm so glad they finally have some fat on their thighs. I was worried about how they would get the shots when they were so skinny.
They are both eating and sleeping better and life is just awesome. We really love it. I can't get enough of them! They are going to look so big next to their new cousins that will be born today.
