Speech and Spelling

Amalia and Brinnly took place in their school's annual "Speech and Spelling Competition" this year.  It was fun to watch them prepare for the big event! They both did really well in their group dialogues and Brinnly advanced to the regional level along with her partner.  Here is a clip of their performance together:

Energy Levels

The twins have a new thing of asking people "What is your energy?" They started it after accompanying their sisters to annual check-ups...I think they mean it to be something like pulse or heart rate.  But in case anyone is wondering, the energy level around here is usually pretty high!

First Snow

The kids took full advantage of the early November snow this year and went sledding to their heart's content. The poor hill was basically covered in mud afterward but they certainly had fun.

Quote of the Day, by Everly

"Mommy, can Grant and I have some of that familiar yogurt for breakfast?"  (Vanilla yogurt that is.  Which I guess in familiar in some way!)

Quote of the Day

This sweetie just lost her third tooth!  Just when we thought she couldn't get any cuter! 

And completely unrelated, Delaney also told me the other day that her wedding is going to be really affordable.  "I'm going wear your wedding dress Mommy, not do my hair, and for dinner...well, you can just cook something up in the Instant Pot"!
