Spittin h2o

Lil' stinker face Tavian has learned that he can spit water out of his mouth and he thinks it is super funny! He just kept doing it over and over, cracking up. It was too funny...until he did it with milk all over Adam! LOL. Anyway, just a video to show you. They crack me up, the things they think of to amuse themselves (and us!)

Graduation Day!!

Adam graduated on Saturday from OSU with a B.S. in secondary education and history. We are soo proud of him! His parents and mine joined us for the ceremony and then on Sunday we had a big barbeque at our house in Glenpool for family and friends. The weather didn't cooperate as much as we liked but it still turned out pretty fun! Here are some pictures from the 2 days. I will post some pics of the boys soon, we have been so busy unpacking that we haven't gotten any lately. And the twins simply don't stand still anymore so it is hard to get a shot! :)

Adam's graduation cake...yuuummm!

Happy Easter Everyone!

We decided to go to the zoo in OKC for Easter morning. It was our first outing since the boys could walk and everything, so we were pretty excited to check out the new childrens zoo. The boys had a ball! They got to pet goats and see chicks, lambs, pigs and a couple of donkeys. They kept hugging the pygmy goats, saying "awwww". lol They wore us OUT though! Whew, they are monkeys! Especially Xavier...he climbs ANYTHING and tried to eat half the mulch in the zoo. lol The zoo had really great places for toddlers to play and climb and the boys went crazy climbing all the equipment and ropes and stuff, it was really fun. They had easter egg hunts, but it was really crowded and the boys are still young, so we will go next year. Anyway, here are a bunch of pictures of our day. Hope everyone had a super great Easter! (Xavier is in the red, Tavian in the blue)

Aquarium Trip

Well, after being snowed in for 4 days we were going pretty stir-crazy! We decided on Sunday afternoon to jump in the van and head to the Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks. We have wanted to go for a while now, but never had the time. It was SO much fun! The boys had a blast looking at all the colorful fish and watching the otter and beaver splash around in their waterfall. We got to walk underneath live sharks too! They even got to interact with a diver in one of the ocean tanks...it was super fun! Here are some pics from our outing:

Xavier and Adam checking out the Tiger Fish

Me and Xavier next to the shrimp exhibit...they had shrimp and horseshoe crab in touch tanks...ew! No thanks! I like my shrimp with garlic butter, not alive and kicking! :)

A massive, nasty looking Moray Eel. This dude was crazy huge...about 6ft in length! Xavier loved him!

Tavian and me looking at really shiny fish. Those things almost hurt your eyes they were so bright!

Adam holding the fin of a shark from his shark cage...he is nuts! lol

Some awesome jellyfish...they were huge!

Me barely escaping a live from the shark cage. Whew, I was terrified! hehe

The boys got 2 cozy coups for Christmas from their Nana and Paapa. They got a police car and a fire engine...and they love them! They love pushing each other around in them (makes my job easy! :) and they love riding along, honking the horn. We have them indoors right now because of the icky weather but I can't wait for spring so they can hit the open road! Here are a few pics:

This is Tavian's gansta face, lol

Xavier loves to stand up on everything! Little turkey is a climber!

Tavian Time

Here are a few cute pictures I got of Tavian the other day. He is hilarious, he loves reading books, playing in tents and carrying his "Ruffles" the puppy dog around. His many faces crack me up, just thought I would share!

Aunt Rachael got the boys a huge series of tents that connect to make a train! Tavian loves crawling through the tunnels and especially loves diving in through the train window!

Right before bed-time with Ruffles in his diaper, he drags this dog around everywhere!

Oh the decisions! Too many binkys!!

Chillin at the end of a long, hard day.

Ho Ho Sno

What a blizzard! Christmas Eve brought about 12 inches of snow and 50mph winds!! The picture above was taken about an hour and a half into the day...and it snowed for 8 hours straight! We had a great day being snowed in. The boys loved watching it outside (from the warmth of their playroom of course!) and we had a lazy day full of movies, naps and playing. Although it delayed our Christmas plans, we had fun! We were able to dig out Christmas afternoon and slide our way to the folks in Blackwell. Here are a few random pics I got that day...

The yard had drifts as high as my waist!

The boys loot from Christmas morning. They loved that zebra! It bounces and spins and plays music, they had a blast on it...we should have bought two!

Beanie Babies :)

My sister took some great photos a few weeks ago of the boys in their beanies outside. Tavian is in the red/black beanie and Xavier is in the blue/navy beanie. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!!
