Happy St. Patty's Day

NOTE: There are SEVERAL new posts so be sure to continue to scroll down.

As you can see by the countdown, today was St. Patty's Day. We did several new things around the Fergy home to celebrate this day.
We started the morning off with a treasure hunt to the leprechauns gold. Phoebe was thrilled when she discovered that the gold was candy.  She shoved 3 of them in her mouth before we got it all picked up.
The tricky leprechauns also turned our milk and pancakes green. Side note, I must admit drinking green milk grossed me out a bit
For dinner we had a traditional Irish fare of Corned Beef and Cabbage.  My family always makes this for Paddy's Day, but it was my first time making it for Cory and it turned out great!  
We had fun celebrating and it will be even more fun next year when Phoebe will be old enough to realize some more of the holiday celebrations.

Here Comes the Sun

This week has been the sneak peek of Spring to come.  In celebration of the 50 degree weather we have taken family walks around the neighborhood every evening. 
The twins love taking walks in their new stroller.  As you can see, Cami prefers to kick her feet up on the bar and enjoy the ride.

Some of our Favorite Things: March Edition

In March we have discovered many new fun things to do in the Fergy home.  The first favorite thing is the Baby Seat & Toys; we finally pulled them out from the closet and the babies love sitting in it and playing with toys which they hold so much better than Phoebs ever did.
Here is many of Phoebs favorite things.  She found my future present stash and raided it.  This whole outfit were things she stole out of the stash.  She looked so cute & happy I didn't have the heart to take it away from her.
Our last favorite thing is bath crayons & markers.  Phoebs LOVES doodling on the side of the tub. She has me and her draw dozens of little pictures then wipes them clean and starts over. Upon receiving these markers her baths significantly lengthened towards the 2+ hour time frame.  When she finally gets out of the water it is usually because I have bribed her with a treat at lunch and her little hands and feet are complete prunes.   

Even Cory & I have gotten enjoyment out of tub crayons; these were little drawings Cory did for me.  It always make my mornings better when I get in the shower and see a new drawing from him.

Note: the fish (sardines) pictures are in reference to Cloudy with and Chance of Meatballs, when the headline reads: "NEWS: Sardines are Really Gross." Well, that's what we think of our kids too, so now we call them all Sardines.

Food Food Glorious Food

I admit have been putting off feeding the twins plain rice cereal after the horrible experience it was to try and feed Phoebe rice cereal, but guess what??? These babies love eating and gobble up every bite.  Cami even yells when you go too slow. 
Here are the after feeding pictures; you will note Josh barely has a scrap of food on him.  Cami, on the the other hand, can't seem to find her mouth 50% of the time.

Kye's Blessing

In the beginning of March was cousin Kye's blessing.  He was the last of the 5 cousins to be blessed so to commemorate all the wee ones being blessed/born so close together we dressed all 5 wee ones up in their blessing attire and took pictures.

You can tell be the expression on their faces how excited they were that we did this. All the cousins are sitting in age order beginning on the left with Jared, followed by Cami, Josh, Afton, & Kye.
