Here are some pictures of our little Packers fans. Adalyn was wearing Aaron Kampman's jersey and Alivia was going old school by supporting Frank Winters.
And on a little side note...someone tried to kill the possessed little puppy toy. This puppy starts singing songs at random times during the day when no one touches it or is even around it. Apparently one of the girls got sick of its shenanigans. I'm not sure which one is responsible, but I'd sure like to know!! Because I walked into the living room to see this by the toy box....

The odd thing is that they've been sleeping better than ever! Knock on wood. Knock on wood REALLY hard. In fact, just last night they finally slept through the night. What?! Are these seriously my children? I go on vacation, come home, and they're sleeping well? For several months now, if one of them would sleep through the night (which by the way, didn't happen all that often), the other one would inevitably get up at least once if not two or three times. But last night, they finally collaborated their efforts!! We'll see what tonight brings.
Man, I remember blogging back in September about a night we had where they were up a combined 8 times, followed by 4 times and then 5 times! And here we are, a restful night of sleep for everyone in the house. But like I said, we'll see if it continues. Our typical night has usually involved getting up an average of twice. Either twice with one baby or once with both of them...sometimes just once with one of the girls. And honestly? I can live with that. It's not ideal, but it's such a far cry from where we were just a couple months ago that I'll take it!!
Our vacation was wonderful. The ship was absolutely beautiful. The ocean was amazing. And the food was out-of-this-world-yummy!!! Because of the yummy food, Nate and I promptly began a diet upon returning home! Yikes. Overall, we had an absolute blast. Yes, it was tough leaving the girls, but the smiles on their faces when we came back home were absolutely priceless. I have some pictures to share but I need to download them first! However, I work really early tomorrow morning so I best be getting to bed! Good night.

We fly in to Miami tomorrow. We get on the ship on Friday and our first stop will be Saturday morning in Cococay, Bahamas. Sunday morning we'll arrive at Nassau, Bahamas. And then Monday morning we'll be be back in Miami and flying back home that afternoon. So we're only going to be gone for 4 nights. I know that it's about time Nate and I do something together.
While packing tonight for the trip, I started thinking about the last big trip we took. We went to Disney back in May 2008. I was 16 weeks pregnant with the girls and my "morning sickness" had luckily just disappeared a few days before we left. I remember being in the airport walking to our gate and I told Nate that I was going to pass out (not the only time that trip that I felt that way!! click here for reference). So what does he do?? He summoned one of those little golf cart drivers and had the guy drive us to our gate!! Nate thought it was great and was waving at everyone as we passed them. For those of you that know him, you can definitely see him doing this. Me, on the other hand, I was so embarrassed! If only I had actually *looked* pregnant while getting this ride. Even being 16 weeks with twins, I still didn't really have a belly. So I just felt dumb. But that breeze in my face sure made me feel so much better!!
Let's hope I don't have any issues walking to my gate this year!!! Haha.

Little stinker screamed at me and then gave me this face.
Addi's trying to eat the pumpkin.
All smiles since the pumpkin is nowhere in sight!
These are the best pictures I could get of them together! I know, pathetic.
