The boys have always been close and even though they fight with each other (like most brothers), they still stick pretty close together.

It’s hard to believe they still sit like this. You’d think it would be uncomfortable, but I suppose after spending almost 9-months as “womb-mates,” this would be considered palatial…
This afternoon, the twins, Alex and Adam, went to see the twins, Felonious and Dru! The movie was Despicable Me 3, where Felonious (known simply his last name, “Gru”) discovers his long-lost twin brother, Dru. The fact that they were twins was not lost on Alex and Adam, either! They thought it was pretty cool to have something in common with the Gru twins.
Of course, they had to get pictures with Gru in his cool villain car…
Yes, that’s exactly what I am, for tomorrow, I’m boarding a plane for a 2-1/2 hour flight to Orlando to take 2-1/2-year-old twin boys on a Disney World “vacation.”
I can see it now:
Let’s see, what other words could possibly describe my state-of-mind?
ape, barmy, bats in the belfry, batty, berserk, bonkers, cracked, crazed, cuckoo, daft, delirious, demented, deranged, dingy, dippy, erratic, flaky, flipped, flipped out, freaked out, fruity, idiotic, insane, kooky, lunatic, mad, mad as a March hare, mad as a hatter, maniacal, mental, moonstruck, nuts, nutty, nutty as fruitcake, of unsound mind, out of one’s mind, out of one’s tree, out to lunch, psycho, round the bend, schizo, screw loose, screwball, screwy, silly, touched, unbalanced, unglued, unhinged, unzipped, and wacky!
That just about does it…pick one! What in the world am I thinking?!?
( help me! )
The “tunnel rats” were American, Australian and New Zealand soldiers who performed underground search and destroy missions during the Vietnam War.
Much like these guys…
Watch-out for booby-traps!
Alex has really opened up in the last few days. Although he previously babbled and chattered incessantly, his message was incoherent. Of course, his twin brother, Adam, understood him perfectly, and the two would carry-on extensive conversations in, what was evidently, their super-secret twin language.
Anyway, the tubes in his ears seem to have opened the language floodgate because mom and dad are finally able to understand his speech. Among other things, he talks about his “truck,” the “ball,” and when he’s frustrated, he will utter the word…
( sigh )
This year’s Christmas Card…
Happy Birthday, Alex and Adam! It’s a wonder, after Adam’s misadventures, especially, that you made it to this day! It’s an even greater wonder that mom and dad made it! Whew! What a couple of years it’s been! Nana and Pa were visiting, which made the day even more special!
To celebrate, we made some iron-ons for the onesies they’d wear on their special day!
They seemed to like ’em…
And what birthday is complete without big helium-filled balloons and a personal cake, or rather a cake of cupcakes x 2!
Adam really enjoyed his birthday cake; Alex, uh, not so much…
But the best part of the birthday is definitely the presents. Especially, when the bag is almost as big as you are!
Happy Birthday, Boys!
whereas the boys get a chance to sport their new galoshes, or maybe you prefer boat shoes, dickersons, overshoes, rubbers, or rain boots…
Anyway, whatever you choose to call them, Alex and Adam were sportin’ ’em!
Adam tries ’em out in a convenient puddle. (hmmm…normally mommy yells at me when I do this!)
Next they take ’em for a spin…
Verdict: Although the boots make us look kinda silly, the puddle-splashing freedom they provide is well worth it!
