Ok...It is hard to believe that my title for this post is 2 Year Pics. We cannot believe how quickly the past two years have flown by. It seems like yesterday when Paityn and Conner were first born. It is crazy to think that our little NICU babies are now happy, healthy, growing toddlers! Last weekend we took their 2 year pictures with Hanna Moehlemann, owner of http://www.hannamariephotos.com. She did an awesome job capturing the personality of our twins! Here are a few of the pics...

Well I must say that Paityn and Conner love their family :) They talk about them all the time. They like to look at their pictures when we get home from school and point to everyone and name them. With being back to school, it is hard to get everyone together as much as we would like. We get together when we can and make the most of every minute of it :) We got to spend some time at the fair with Matt's side of the family and got to spend some time my side of the family for Payson's 2nd birthday and at Kaden's first soccer game. Below are a few pics...

Well it's that time of year again! Washington County Fair time!! I have been looking forward to this for a while :) Not just for me, although I do enjoy it, but more for Paityn and Conner! Last year the twins were almost one and still were too small for the rides, petting zoo, or to really understand what was going on. But not this year! Yesterday we went to the WCF to cheer on cousin Kennedy in the Jr. Miss contest and afterward we ventured through the carnival and finally Paityn and Conner got to ride their first rides! I think I was more excited for them since this was their first time ever :) In the beginning they were both a little hesitant when the ride started but overall enjoyed them!

Well Paityn and Conner have been back at school now for about 3 weeks. For the first week both Paityn and Conner cried when Matt or I would drop them off. The second week...Paityn cried everyday. Finally we have made it through the third week and NO TEARS!! Now when we get to school they both say "out" "play!" I must say I am so glad that we started the twins back to school early before my first day of school because there is no way we could have done this with me teaching already. Even though they have been going to school since they were 10 weeks...after being home all summer...this was the first time that goodbye was hard for them and me. When Paityn and Conner were little they didn't really realize that we were leaving. With the twins being almost 2 goodbyes are definitely a lot tougher! Now that the kids are settled into their new school routine...tomorrow marks the beginning of my new routine with the first day of school. I am excited to begin my 5th year teaching 3rd grade and am anxious to get to know my new students! Open house last week was a success and can't wait to get the year started :)

For the past few days we have been telling the twins that they are going to go to school. They would repeat "kool" and we would proceed to tell them about meeting their new teacher, making new friends, and getting to play with new toys. This past weekend we bought their school supplies and they were very interested in it...especially their new "big boy" and "big girl" backpacks!
