Mary Claire and Elizabeth, Age 5

Happy Birthday to our sweet twins!!!






We let them open presents this morning and then surprised them with the reason we aren't throwing them a birthday party... We're going on a family vacation! Just for a few days in December, we'll be hitting all good tourist spots in Williamsburg (where we used to live) and staying at Great Wolf Lodge (because indoor water park + homeschool rates!). Andrew and I are really excited and the kids are OVER THE MOON excited!!! And even though it'll still be Advent, I think we'll be embracing the awesome Christmas-y traditions the few days we're there, because it's such a cool cultural/historical experience. So of course I had to get a few more Colonial-ish dresses because I casually asked the kids a few weeks ago if they thought they'd like to dress in period clothes whenever we got around to visiting Williamsburg again. Peter's planning on wearing his knight costume...

Just as we do every year, here's their birthday survey!
