25 years ago yesterday, I became a big sister again! My mom gave birth to a set of twins, one boy and one girl. I remember the excitement when my mom brought them home from the hospital. They were so tiny, especially my brother. Now those 25 year olds have children of their own. My sister has three kids and my brother has one. I was fortunate enough to get to keep all four of them last night. Keep in mind that they are all under the age of five!!!

When we finally all got out of the bath and got hair and teeth brushed, they decided that they wanted to lay down and watch Disney's Tangled. It is a great movie!! Our entire family loves it. We have watched it several times over and it's a hit with the boys and girls alike. Maximus is one of our favorite characters, but Pascal is pretty funny as well. Most of the kids fell asleep watching the movie. When I went to bed after turning it off, only one remained. I just left the television on the Disney channel and I am assuming he finally fell asleep. He was one of the first ones out of bed this morning!
For breakfast, we had pancakes with fresh strawberries and bacon. Making food for 7 children and two adults can be quite a challenge and I must admit not something I think I'd want to do all of the time! But, I was up for the challenge today. In fact, once breakfast was cooked and we moved on to the plating of the food, I decided to be a little creative and the kids loved it! What do you think?

I am so very blessed and I am grateful to my sister and brother for lending me their children for a night so that I could spend time with them. We had a wonderful time and I am looking forward to doing it again real soon! I hope that they both had a wonderful night with their spouse and enjoyed their birthday. I know we sure did!!
