Is it my imagination or does one have darker hair than the other? Just asking cause one of my twins is blond & the other brunet... yours look more alike than mine do though. I actually had people refuse to believe they were twins!

Yep. Connor on the left is almost blonde and Daniel is dark haired. Connor has blue eyes and Daniel has hazel/green eyes...... They are as different as night and day. Unbelievable, eh?

Well, I believe it! That's just the coloring of my boys! Are their personalities different too?

Drag racing sounds scary to me. I used to watch nascar races on tv many years ago.

Karen,

Love your picture of you littlest ones too.

We went miniature golfing today. Wound up in Vancouver since we saw a decent course there, so we saved on the gas had we had to go down to Oregon. We choose to golf the 36 holes which was too much for poor Seth sitting in a stroller and dressed a little too warm for the heat we wound up having. I raced through the last 6 holes and got him back to the car to cool down. I'm tired now. I was also dressed wrong for the heat. I didn't realize it was going to be so hot today and it was comfortable when we left the house. Glad to be back home and glad that you guys didn't take off on a writing frenzy today. :P

Molly,

We are going to miss you....drive by on the weekends if you have time.

Oh yeah, like you wouldn't believe.....

Daniel is firstborn - shy, bashful, thoughtful, long attention span, will sit for an hour colouring or playing with Hot Wheels..... If Daniel gets hurt even in the slightest, he's balling for 10 minutes.

Connor is born 4 minutes later - Hell on Wheels - the song "Bad to the Bone" is his theme song...... can't take you eyes off him for a second. Mischief is his middle name. LOL! He is wired sooooo differently! He is drawn to anything electronic. We have an entertainment system that includes the TV, 1 VCR, 1 DVD player, 1 DVD recorder, complete stereo system, and the Rogers Digital Cable box. We have 6 converters for all. Connor knows which converter is for what machine, what buttons to press, how to singlehandedly hook up the X-Box system, etc. etc. Also, Connor will walk up to just about anybody and introduce himself, ask what their name is, and if they want to play or not...... not shy at all! If Connor gets hurt, no matter how bad it is, he gets up and says "It's OKAY! I'm OKAY! I'm not hurt!" He will NEVER admit when he is hurt!! Mr. Tough Guy!

Can't get much more opposite than that!

:lol: I don't exactly know what drag racing is either, I am thinking the smaller cars, go-cart thingys, and you drive really fast??

Molly, sounds like you are going to have a very busy year. Stop in when you can :)

Karen, your twins are adorable!! Great picture.

Andrea, how I would love to get in the car and to just happen to wind up in Vancouver :lol::lol:

This is so cool-- so much like my guys! (They're 19 now... how did that happen?) Except in our house the quiet one was the electronics guy... still great with computers...

He's come out of his shell a bit over the years, & in fact they even look more alike now, but I used to say it was like having a science experiment in your own home... nature vs. nurture... not saying nurture isn't important, but those guys were hard-wired in the womb! I have pictures when they were tiny & you can see their distinct personalities even then. I'm sure Connor & Daniel too...

They were born at 31 weeks gestation (9 weeks early) because Daniel broke his water. See, Connor kept on kicking him in the head and Daniel finally said "I'm blowing this popsicle stand!" They were both 3 lbs 12 oz. when they were born. It's funny, we have video of when they were first home from the hospital - Daniel was the troublesome, noisy baby, Connor was quiet. We even used to joke about it. Then, six months, MAN! TOTAL SWITCH! Weird, eh?

That is weird! Did either of yours have colic? I've often wondered if that was a celiac precursor... one of mine did & the other didn't...

Must sign off... both kids out of the house for the night... husband becoming grumpy for lack of attention!!! See you tomorrow.

Nope. Thank God none of my kids ended up with colic. So far I have had the girls bloodtest done, both negative, but haven't tested the boys yet. Daniel used to have constipation problems when he was younger but not now. Connor hasn't had any problems. Rhiannon is the one I am convinced will have celiac. She is fine boned, delicate, and has had constipation problems also......

Just a trophy??? Trophy's are an excellent prize! I've gotten the tiniest trophies....some for 3rd place even but they still meant the world to me and I displayed them proudly in my room. :D

I've never gotten cash for anything...just little trophies, ribbons, t-shirts...stuff like that. I have alot of softball t-shirts cuz thats what they pass out to the winning team.

I'm kind of embarrassed to ask this but what exactly is drag racing? What are you racing in and where....on a track?? :unsure:

Here is a link to where we race. http://ohiovalleydragway.com/

It is a place where you can race dragsters - those long pointy cars or you can race a regular race car. Unlike Bill, I race trophy & so does his dad. Some people race souped up cars but I race my Mustang Convertible that I also drive to work. It is an 1/8 mile track & it is bracket racing so the slower cars leave before the faster cars & therefore theoretically you should arrive at the same time.

It is not scary at all. I don't go fast enough in my car to have to wear a helmet. I just buckle in & go. Bill, on the other hand, has to wear this fireproof jacket & helmet & has roll bars & such like a regular race car you in Nascar races. It is really a alot of fun.

It seems like the time of day here in KY that I get on here everyone else must be asleep or something.

I know exactly what you mean. When I am off of here for more than a day it is hard to read everything. I've become a very good skimmer. Ha!

Hi everyone! We're back ... I'm sick. I don't know if I was glutened or what ... Morgan made me some eggs and a gluten-free english muffin. I looked over everyone's posts, but don't have the energy to remember what all to say in response ... love the new pics. I feel like going out for a latte and a real cookie, what would it hurt, I feel bad already ... but I have three people in this house who are bigger than me, so I can't.

Andrea that is a beautiful collection of horses. I dont know much about them at all. In fact I have never ridden one. But I do appreciate their beauty.

Thank you! Aside from their beauty, I love their stamina and courage.

I feel like going out for a latte and a real cookie, what would it hurt, I feel bad already ... but I have three people in this house who are bigger than me, so I can't.

:lol::lol: No cheating for you!

Seriously, I'm sorry you got glutened though. :( I hope this passes quickly for you.

Thanks. I don't know if it is glutening or what ... I was ill before we left, didn't feel good while we were there, now sick again/still. I think it was a virus before we left since Morgan had the same thing and we had been eating at home ... I don't really know what's wrong ... I guess that's a topic for another thread. Susan, where is that complaining thread? I'll meet you there!

Mom-don't read the following

Ok, so if Mom didn't think I was truly Racheling before with the ice cream....she should definitely believe it now. Since I've been off dairy the past three days, today being the fourth, I have had to have serious pulling apart from my chocolate :( It's so hard, but I have found that I've been on a major sugar rush lately resulting from it. For lunch I started out with a doughnut (gluten free of course), I then ate about ten cookies (also gluten free), then a dairy free piece of chocolate and finally I made some more cookies eating quite a bit of the "dough." Mmmmm, it was good :P But I think I'm close to being sick...not really but I think I'll go grocery shopping for Mom for dinner and buy myself some spinich and coloflower ( :blink: how do we spell that....cauloflower, caloflour...I don't know and am not going to look it up :D )

Okay, Morgan, add cauliflower to your spelling list. I haven't had to do spelling with you in years, but to all you homeschoolers out there, here's how I did it (not that it worked!) ... spell a word wrong, add it to your daily list. Spell it correctly three days in a row, moves to the weekly list, three weeks in a row, and it's retired. So, Morgan, add cauliflower ... :)

She is definatley Racheling meringue cookies. But did you see how much fudge Luke bought? I can't wait till he's sick to his stomach off that and tries to hide it (hee, hee, I'm such a bad, mean mom). Okay, I think I may try to get up finally ... thanks for a great lunch Morgan.
