Those of you who have eaten a meal with the twins know that they do not get much sugar. I think it's helped me stay closer to sane these last few years :) However, there are special occasions and gifts when we allow them to stray from our normal food rules. Our friends Will and Catie brought back these giant lollipops from Disney World after they ran the marathon there. We couldn't not let the kids try them... so we unwrapped a small section and they went to town. They were a little overwhelmed to say the least!

The "new house'

We moved 6 weeks ago to an apartment in Astoria (Queens). It's about 35 minutes door to door from Nathan's work and he doesn't have to transfer trains. We have a lot more space and the neighborhood is much quieter so I'm able to take the kids out and let them walk next to the stroller. We also have a back patio area which is great when my energy level is too low to get them out for a walk.

But apparently they are used to small spaces because they did this to themselves while we were moving in:

Fortunately we had lots of friends and family help us with the move. My dad and Uncle T'Errance were the only ones that we thought to take pictures with but everyone who helped was a lifesaver!
