And just like that, they are 6!!

This blog post is brought to you by bath bombs and bubbles. Bathtubs have always been a favorite of the twins, so how better to commemorate their 6th birthday than with a giant bubblebath (and new favorite, bathbombs.)!
I've been reminiscing this week about their birth. Both born healthy, happy and BIG! 
We hurried home with them from the hospital as quick as we could and began life with these new babies. 

Nixon {baby A} is a natural born athlete. Any sport he plays he excels at and is quick to pick up. He still loves trains, trains and more trains! His favorite color is red and his favorite food is pizza! 

Cooper {baby B} is tall and smart. His logical thinking and inquiry fascinates us constantly. He loves to snuggle and has the best cheeks for kissing! He loves Hotwheels cars, the color gold (and light blue), and you guessed it, pizza!

This stage of life with twins is so fun! Happily independent but quick to ask for help. They still love to sneak into our bed. They say "I love you more that all the numbers" numerous times a day and ask for eskimos kisses constantly. I will always oblige happily! 

Happy Birthday our Twinners. We love you to the moon and back!

Jr. Jazz (Clippers and Spurs)

I finally brought my camera to the boys' games. Both Ashton and Weston play on Wednesday evenings, so it's a lot of scheduling and driving. Thanks to my Sister who helps out when the boys play at the same time!
Shawn Bradley was at Ashton's game this week. His stepson played for the other team. 
The boys did great this week, definitely dominating on defense. They both had lot's of steals and Weston made 4 free throws! 
So happy they love basketball!

Sunday mornings don't have to be crazy

The boys have been obsessed with origami-particularly the paper game above^^
This morning before church, Ashton, Weston and Cooper spent some time folding different sizes and colors. 
Perfect Sunday morning activity! 
Nixon and I have been a bit off this weekend, so our Saturday was filled with movies, takeout and naps. Ashton had soccer practice in the morning but that was all that was on the agenda. 
Sunday morning I decided that instead of going to church un-well, or having everyone stay home, that I would send the healthy kids. Church is a 2 minute walk from our house, and I knew that they would be safe and taken care of at church alone. 
I made waffles for breakfast and the boys folded origami in their church clothes. We have 9:00 church but our morning wasn't hurried. 
Ashton helped Cooper with the scripture that he had in Primary (Psalms 82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.). Weston had the prayer and all went smoothly for them. 
Ashton sent me this text as they were walking home. I was happy to hear that church was good! 
 I peered out the twins' bedroom window and saw 3 handsome boys rounding the corner. Stella ran out of the front door to greet her brothers and I was greeted with hugs and coloring pages from Primary.

Boys, brothers, friends.

What more could boys ask for than an empty lot full of rocks and dirt. I guess the fact that it is right across from our house makes it even better!
The boys played, explored, and excavated for over 2 hours yesterday afternoon. As the sun started to set, I took advantage of grabbing my camera for some more artistic shots.
I guess the better outcome of this story is that they all played together-siblings in their own tribe of imagination. No friends {though friends are always welcome!} just brothers on an adventure to dig to china, find a dinosaur bone and do it all before the sun went down.
