Since blogging last... birthdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, some snow days, new years, Valentine's Day, Wrestling season (Joe coaches which means he's never home) have all come and gone. Everything has just been one big blurry mess. As much as I would love (not really) to share everything that happened here are just some of the happening lately...
~Travis lost his first tooth! I was not expecting this at all. I had to call my sister just to make sure that it wasn't too early. Travis was freaking out but finally calmed down when I told him all about the tooth fairy.
~Travis loves pre-school and can't wait to get into Kindergarten. He is currently into sounding words out and writing them down. I find random papers all over the place with some pretty interesting words on them.

~Tyler, Tyler. He has recently developed an attitude. Sometimes I think there's a 16 year old boy in this three year olds body.
~The other day we were at the store walking up to pay and passed an older man with a patch on his eye. Well, Tyler has been watching Peter Pan lately so he looks at me and has the biggest smile on his face and points....,"Mom, there's a pirate!" It was like he found treasure he was so excited. It was one of those moments that I just kept on walking and hoped that the man didn't hear.
~Tyler is now in Primary! He loves it. I made a yellow "sunbeam" tie for him and I think he has worn it almost every sunday this year.

This picture isn't the best but it's the best I got. If you look closely Travis is holding baby #2 and Tyler has baby #1! Yeah I know crazy!! We're having twins! The biggest reason for the no blogging for four months. They are supposed to get here, as Travis says, sometime in the middle of July. I think that Joe was actually the one that was the most surprised (although it was a surprise to everyone, twins really doesn't run in my family). He wasn't with me when I found out and he didn't believe me when I told him. I get to go in for 2 hour ultra sounds once a month (not as fun as it sounds) and this last time we found out that one is a boy and one is a girl. When ever we talk about a baby girl Travis just laughs and Tyler gets mad. Apparently girls aren't allowed in our family. As I was taking this picture I asked who wanted to hold the girl and they both wouldn't touch the picture. I think we're going to have some adjustment issues. Tyler has no interest in the babies (but he thinks that it's cool that my stomach is getting bigger and bigger) and it's all that Travis talks about.
So there's the Sloan family and what we've been doing the last few months. Hopefully things will be a little more lively now.
