Orange Hands

So what do you think?  
 I thought this Facebook memory was cute.
 Where is Eli?
 Peek a boo!  He's been hiding a lot.
 Off to school.
 He took out the ice cream himself.  
 It was before dinner so poor kid didn't get any.
 Practicing our A's.
 Practicing soccer!

 What are you doing with that trash can Eli?

 Off to school again.
 We haven't met their friends yet.  Maybe when the birthday parties start.
 This was after school.  Noah was ready to go.
 Orange hands.

 Don't get excited, both boys have no idea what the potty is for.

Paradise City

It's Monday night.  The twins did not sleep well last night so fingers crossed tonight.  It's so hard to go to the gym and exercise on a few hours sleep but somehow I did it.  I've been exercising steadily for almost 6 months!  I'm still waiting to see a difference.  The twins have been super funny.  I need to take more videos.  They are talking so much and saying the funniest things.  Just look at these faces!
 Last Sunday morning we went to synagogue.  They unfurled the whole torah scroll!
 Then it was a Sukkah party.

 Yummy milkshakes.

 We stopped by our neighbor Jake's 1st birthday party.  He's starting to walk!
 Then we headed to Amy's parent's house for Gwen's baby naming.  Eli found fruit.
 Our friend Larry the rabbi conducted a pretty ceremony.
 The grandparents got to speak.  
 Yummy sweets.

 We found this picture of Amy around Ariel's age.  What do you think?

 Sunday night, I went with three friends to see Guns N Roses!  I had never seen them and was excited.  We got seats last minute and were right on the side of the stage!
 It was crazy.  They played for 3 1/2 hours without stopping!  I was exhausted just watching.  Axl Rose screams the whole time, I don't know how he does it.  

 Jason and I.
 Paradise City.

 33 songs!  Great show!

Aden and Benji vs. Jake, Jack and Finn

It's Sunday night late.  We had friends over today and went pumpkin picking then had dinner.  We are tired but had a lot of fun.  I have some cute pics to post later.  Last night we stayed in because I knew I would need energy today but it didn't really help.  I'm just getting old I guess.  

Last Saturday Aden had a big soccer game.  He was disappointed this year that he was not on team with all his buddies but he was excited to play them.  Apparently they were trash talking all week.  Amy's parents came to watch.
I took as many shots as I could get with Aden and his friends on both teams.

 Here is Aden and Jake, one of his oldest friends, in light blue.
 It was a very hard fought game.  They got very physical.  Aden knocked Jake and Jack to the ground more than once.

 We were tied with a couple of minutes left.  The parents all thought that would be the best outcome, but then we scored two quick goals for the win!
 All is fair in love and war.
The twins had their turn.  
 They always seem to be hungry at soccer.  There are signs everywhere saying food isn't allowed.  Oops.
 Aden helped out.

 The boys were really into it for the first time.

 They sing a bunch of soccer songs!
 Sticker time!  Ariel of course had to get hers.
 Is that a cupcake Eli?
 We had a new sitter.  One of Ariel's counselors. We left after the babies were asleep and just stayed local for dinner.
