Welcome to my blog - it's like a diary only better. This is my soapbox containing a collection of my thoughts and the experiences of my life raising twins.

Prior to this blog, prior to marriage and prior to the twinsanity that I now call my life, life was quite different for me. When you visit this blog, you won’t find me writing much about my life pre-twins – I hope that’s okay. Why? You ask. Because life with twins changes everything and my life pre-multiples is now just a dizzy, distant memory. And while it’s true that life years ago may have been a little more glamorous, the life I live now is a whole lot more rewarding and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

I’m glad you’ve stopped by...there’s a really strong chance that I won’t offer anything extraordinary here, but by the same token there is also the possibility that you will experience a taste of the adventures, challenges and many joys that come with my life with twins. Hopefully that will be enough to bring you back here again.

Christmas in New York

I like Christmas. What’s not to like about eating copious amounts of food while having a few laughs with friends and family? And it is not everyday you get to greet a total stranger and expect to see a smile these days – not to mention a response. But, “Merry Christmas” gets the job done pretty easily.

I also like the festive atmosphere of Christmas. People in general seem far more relaxed, their attitudes a lot more positive. Streets are decorated with lights, shops have Christmas themes and there is a local Santa Claus in a fake white beard everywhere you look handing out balloons and candy to terrified children.

This Christmas, we traveled to New York to spend the holidays with Mike's family. It was a great weekend; and the twins got to see all their cousins, aunts and nephews, their great aunt as well as their Momo and Poppa! Even Tukker, our 5 year old chocolate lab, tagged along for the holidays to New York.

A few pictures from Christmas time in New York follow...and, a few more pictures are still to come!
