Time has really flown by since that bittersweet day four years ago. We've been through a lot over the past four years with our girls, and honestly every bit of fear, worry and doubt has all been worth it.

Usually on their Birthday I find myself getting a little teary thinking of how their life began, but this year I am actually focused on the two little beautiful girls they are. It has taken a long time to get past those three months that the girls were in the hospital as well as the year after, wondering what the future would hold for them. I don't think we ever will get over that, but at least it is getting easier to deal with. It changed our lives forever in a lot of ways.

So I know it's been forever since I've updated and now I am at a point where it would take days or even weeks to upload pictures and update everyone on the different things that have been going on. So I decided that I would post some pictures of one of the most exciting days of our lives recently. Olivia & Avery's first dance recital! It was the sweetest thing ever. Both Brian & I expected all these little girls to be going in all different directions and of course it turned out to be the complete opposite. All of them did a great job at remembering their dance moves and the words to the songs.

Here they are all done up for the big recital, showing off their roses they got from Baka & Dida for doing such a job!

One of my favorite pictures of the night. Avery belting out the words to Baa Baa Black Sheep.

Waiting backstage and getting a little silly.

I've also been busy lately stamping up a storm!
I am having so much fun doing this that it's all I think about now.
Here are a few of the pieces I have done so far, to see more check out my new blog this is also part of the reason I haven't had time to update here.
There are lots of different designs and I am planning on having some fun giveaways from time to time!

The girls and I spent the day shopping today. I took them out and let them pick out something they wanted for their birthday. Of course we came home with Barbie. There's a surprise! I swear some days I think our house is being taken over by Barbie and the millions of little shoes, combs and any other little bits the Mattel people can throw in the box just to drive a parent insane! Honestly why is everything so small? Do they not realize that kids hate to pick up their toy's and because of it, us parents are injured in the process. If you've ever stepped on one of these tiny pieces like a barbie shoe, you know exactly what I am talking about.
This year I went against my own beliefs. I always swore my kids would NEVER have a scooter. Well I caved. So tonight after dinner we gave the girls their presents to open and the first was this scooter. Of course they loved it! We put it together right away and headed out. All the other kids on the street are cruising by us, some even without a helmet. While I had the girls all done up in full gear from head to toe. They both really did a great job on them for it being their first time. I will post picture's of it as soon as I upload them.
I am excited to see what the age of four brings. Three was a great age, so eager to learn and try new things. I have heard from a few parents that I know that four is even better!
