Fly Eagles Fly

It's Thursday night.  I was at the NAC forever today.  Aden and Ariel had classes.  Even though I knew a ton of people, that place is so boring if you are there for hours.  It's going to be getting a little warmer this weekend.  Just in time for the NFC Championship Game!  Speaking of the Eagles, last Saturday, Aden and went to the game.  

It was a quiet day.  Eli was looking for the peanut butter in the crackers.  
 Aden and I put on tons of layers and headed to the stadium.  It was around 20 degrees with a strong wind.  I went to the NFC Championship Game in 2005 against the Falcons and it was even colder.  At the time, it was hip for the players to wear fur coats on the sidelines.  I borrowed my grandmother's mink.  I still have it!  So I wore it under my jacket.  Aden wanted to throw the ball around in the parking lot.  
 Ready to head in.
 Cool shot.  Those poor people who have to go all the way up there.
 Aden ate 2 hot dogs while we walked to our seats.
 Everyone stood the whole time.  It was too cold to sit.  Aden stood on his chair.  Normally I wouldn't let him but the guy in front of us was over 6 feet tall.
 Flyover by jets.
 Too cool to zipper his jacket.

 It was a rough game to watch but we made it to the end.
 We ran to our car.  It's amazing how long it takes people to get out of the stadium.  
 Aden was excited and we were the first to our cars.
 Passing the stadium on 95.  It took a long time to warm up but it was worth it!  Have a great weekend!

Cake Pops

Here starts a string a very short posts.  The kids aren't in as many activities as usual and the ones they are in either Amy has been taking them and she never takes pictures or we aren't allowed to watch.  Last week, the boys had Eagles Day at school.
 Their teacher is very creative.
 It's great Ariel is at school with them.

 Only a couple of more years of car seats.
 Cake pops!

 I got this bar to try and keep Eli in his crib.  He was breaking out a lot.
 Lots of books before bed.

Give Me That Egg

It's Tuesday night.  Noah is pretty much potty trained at school.  He has not worn a diaper there in a couple of weeks.  At school he's been great.  At home, not so much.  We say it's potty time, he says it's diaper time!  He fights us like crazy.  So tomorrow night, his teacher is coming over to help.  That should be interesting.  Now if we could get him to sleep at night too...

Last week the boys were grooving during dinner

Back to music class!  2 happy boys.

 Eggs everywhere!

 You want to play with Ms. Marylin's stuff?
 What is she doing?

 This poor house has been through a lot with these two.
 Homework time.

Mika's House

It's Monday night.  Noah just counted to 11!  Maybe he will be our brilliant one?  We noticed recently that the twins sleep head to head.  It's really cute.  Also, Noah wants to be under a blanket now, which is good because it's so cold.  We think we finally locked Eli into his crib so he can't escape anymore.  Pictures to follow.  I guess we need to start considering beds.  It's visitation week at Aden's school.  We an go and watch as much as we want.  I can't wait to check it out.  I'm really low on pictures so here's a short post.  

Ariel had playdate at Mika's house.  They had a huge troop carrier in their driveway.  I asked Mika's mom what is was doing there.  She said her husband was a 12 year old.  He saw it and had to buy it!
 Then we went food shopping.
 Dipping our pasta in the sauce.
 Ariel working hard on the boys' hair.
That's quite a ponytail Noah.

 Ariel is very Jewish.
 Pick up at school.  

 Cuddles on the sofa.

 Eating is always an adventure.
 They all get so wild before bed.

Nate's Birthday

We are watching the end of the Vikings New Orleans game.  Crazy.  Aden and I went to the Eagles game yesterday.  It was cold but fun.  We are waiting to see who we are going to play next week in the NFC Championship Game.  OMG.  The Vikings just won in the last second.  That was insane!  I guess it's Eagles Vikings next week.  Other then the huge Eagles win it was a pretty sucky weekend.  The twins are very hard these days.  Speaking of the twins...
 Last Sunday we headed to the NAC for Nate's kind of delayed birthday party.  We ran into Aden's 3rd grade teacher.
 Then it was party time.  
 Here comes Sammy.

 Eli was not sure about the giant caterpillar.  
 He stayed far away from it.  Noah went through with Ariel.  They are so much alike.  

 Balance beams.  
 Ariel helped all the little ones.

 There's the birthday boy.
Aden made some big jumps.
 Very good Ariel.
 I'm shocked Nate went in the parachute.  My boys stayed far away.

 Sweet family!
 The boys were so excited about that birthday cake.
 Fun times!
