Colin, Larry and I went to the movies last night. Matt and Kim came by to watch the boys. We saw Sweeney Todd. It was Colin's choice and we all thought it was pretty good. Colin said it was a little gory but good. It was good to get out and spend some time with Colin.
Our friends Tim and Eileen have stopped by for a quick visit. Eileen was over yesterday as well. As you all know by now another set of hands is always greatly appreciated. Our boys felt the need to leave them both with presents of spit up on their laps and chest.
So, instead of pumping like I have been for the past five weeks I have decided to start nursing the boys. I nurse one or both of them every 2-3 hours. As you can see this has completely drained me. I have come to enjoy an afternoon catnap. William and I are sleeping peacefully after a trip to some stores in the morning. Shopping with babies, is nothing like the old days of being by myself.

Our boys celebrated their first Christmas yesterday. We had a great time in the morning with my in laws and in the afternoon with my family. Thomas and William are still the "hot ticket item" in town and everyone wants to get their hands on them. I must thank everyone who comes over to help and hold the babies. It is such a big help to have an extra set of hands even if it is for a short amount of time. I was so nervous to bring two babies home and it is a lot of work. I could never imaging not having both boys though.

Big cousin Chrissy stops in to say hello. Although he may not realize it now, chrissy was the only witness to my water breaking on 11/20/07. apparently raiding Colin's room was more important than finding me a phone
Colin gets to hold his brothers for the first time. He was so excited to hold them he didnt know who to hold first. That smile says it all about how much he loves his brothers
John Frances said they were the best birthday present he could ever get. We stopped on our way home from the hospital to meet our family on Thanksgiving
