We're 3!

Wow, it's been quite a while since we've posted on here.  Frankly, life gets kinda crazy around here.  So, we apologize and will try and get you up to date.

The biggest thing that's happened is the boys turned 3!  They choose a Mickey Mouse theme for their birthday party.  We had lots of friends and family members here to celebrate and the boys loved every minute of it. 

A few days after their birthday we had our 3 year checks with Dr. Nau.  We still aren't very big, still have to drink whole milk, still have to drink pediasure, still have to push the calories with these boys (wish that was the case with me!).  But, Dr. Nau said he's less worried about their size than he used to be...hooray!  Here's our stats:
 Aidan-29 pounds, 2 ounces (22nd%) and 37 inches tall (32nd%)
Ethan-26 pounds (3rd %) and 36 inches tall (11th %)...of note, 6 months ago Ethan was only in the he is making some great progress!!

Later that same day, we went to Boone and rode the Pumpkin Train with our friends the Van Der Lindens.  Lily is their best little girl friend...Ethan describes her as "beautiful".  Hope there's not fights some day :)  We let the kids wear their Halloween costumes.

 We've been enjoying the beautiful fall weather.  The boys have been out playing in the leaves and getting to the park as much as we can these last few days.  The end of next month, Adam and I are taking a trip to Mexico with Adam's brother Stephen and his wife Steffani.  We are both celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversaries this year.

Thanks to everyone who helped make the boy's birthday special.  We are so lucky to have family and friends that care about us.  Until next time...
