4th of July

We had an awesome 4th of july with our family. We spent all day at the pool and followed up with a parade on our street and fireworks. We put the girls down and sat outside. Our neighbors drove to Alabama and spent $500 on fireworks, and they were pretty impressive. Maddie was a little nervous, but pretty brave and sat with me a few houses from the festivities. Guenter sat up closer, I am pretty impressed I thought for sure they would be scared!! Below are some pictures of our day!!

The Kryszon family before the parade:

The kids swimming at the pool, notice Maddie swimming ... not bad for 3!!

The kids laying around ... the girls were asleep under the canopy!!

Guenter showing off.

Guenter at the parade.

The girls ... Kylie on the left, Kendall on the right.
The girls getting ready to take their nap at the pool, they will swing for up to 3 hours!
The gear it takes to get to the pool ... not pictured is the huge canopy that Guenter pulls as well. Lots of gear and work but well worth the few hours we spend up there!

Having some tummy time with Maddie and Guenter. Check out M and G's tans!!

It has been a while since I last post. We have been busy this summer spending most days at the pool. We have a waterslide and mushroom with zero entry in our neighborhood so we try to make it most days. It is quie a feat to get everyone there, but worth it! On the weekends we bought an 10 X 10 instant canopy and pop that up, for the girls. They will take a nap in their travel swings we bring for them, sometimes sleeping up to 3 hours. It is wonderful to spend time with Maddie and Guenter without the girls!! Guenter is swimming awesome, and brown as a bear. He can swim on his back as well as across the pool (25 yards)! Maddie also started swimming and can swim about 10 feet, but has not learned how to come up for air, not bad for a 3 year old!! The girls also love the pool, we set them up in their swimsuits and put them in baby floats which they love, but also love to drink the water. We went today with a good friend and they were cooing away in their floats.
Kendall and Kylie are growing like weeds and quickly developing their own personalities. Kendall is the more agressive of the two, loudest, and neediest. Kylie is more laid back and the quiter of the two. Kendall is the class president and Kylie is the thinker of the two!! She might be our future doctor. They are almost 6 months (on Friday). They are sitting for around 2o seconds, Kylie is better than Kendall but I also think it is b/c she has the patience for it, Kendall gets frustrated easily!
For those of you who are dying to know, I have lost all my twin weight and am fitting in most of my pre-preggo clothes! YEA!!! I have worked hard at the gym, and it is nice to have something to show for it.
I will post their 6 month stats, after their appointment in mid-July!!
Hopefully I will have more pool pics soon!!

Forsyth County champs and a visit from the stomach bug!

Last weekend Guenter's 5 year old baseball time participated in the Forsyth County Championship tournament, after 5 games and a nail biter last two they won the tournament!!! Yankees 17, D-backs 12 . Victory is wonderful especially since their moms were maniacs ... yelling at the ump and everything. Our neighbor Andrew, closed off the game by making a triple play (he is only 5, yes!!) ... look for him in the major leagues in a few years. Guenter won the game ball in the semi-final game by making the last RBI and finshing the score with 13-12. In the final game he did great at short stop and was like a wall, nothing passed him! He also hit the ball off the coach ... no T during every inning.

Here he is with coach Todd after the game:

Oh yeah, during the middle of the tournament our entire family ... yes our entire family was hit by the stomach bug! Just when we changed the sheets on one bed they would throw up again and again ... I hate the stomach bug!! Thanks to my in-laws who came to help while I was hanging my head over the toliet. It was a rough two days. Luckily we are all fully recovered, except for my poor Father-in-law who got it a few days ago ... what a trooper.

Last but not least, here is a new pic of a healed Kryszon pack:

Maddie our funny child

Maddie loves to play with her dolls now, and I was in the kitchen cleaning and came back to find the dolls in the boppy's (just how I feed the twins at home alone) with their bottles by their sides.
How cute is that!!

Guenter graduated!!

Guenter has graduated from preschool! It was such a cute ceremony. They sang a few songs, and then followed up by calling each preschooler's name. He did awesome singing, and did all the hand motions (much better considering in 3 yr preschool he picked his nose during the entire christmas ceremony) to the songs. He is growing up and so excited to be starting Kindergarten at Sawnee Elem, in August! Way to go little G, we love you!!

The 4 year old preschool class of 2009!

The graduate!

Thanks to my mom for entertaining Maddie, and my dad for filming!!

My mom

Just a little blip about my mom. She has been through a tough time recently, having been diagnosed with breast cancer (Stage 1 ) in November, then followed with a double masectomy and reconstructive surgery in December, and some touch up work done recently. WoW !! That is a lot of surgery, but she is completly recovered and cancer free! She is doing great and looking foward to finding a new job soon. Love you mom!! She is definetly a fighter, has not complained one bit through all of this. She is definetly a breast cancer warrior!!

Maddie is three!!

Our little princess turned three last weekend. We celebrated by having a party with a few friends from her playgroup. They enjoyed putting stickers on a personal bucket and then going on a treasure hunt ... looking for buried treasure!! It was a hit, basically I laid out a few buckets filled with sand and goodies inside and the kids went to town. We also had a jumpy in the garage which is always a hit with the kids! Maddie loved her present from Mommy and Daddy ... a Cinderella dress .. she loved parading around the house in it.

She is quite the girl around here and very inquisitive. We like to call her the bag lady or hoarder of the family. She loves to stuff anything into any sort of container and carry it around the house. It does not matter what it is, if it has a hole and is capable of being stuffed with something she is set ;-0!! She loves to give hugs and cuddle, we love you sweet girl!! She is starting to write letters and can even write part of her name. We look foward to her starting preschool this September.
And of course here is a picture of the growing girls , who are about to enjoy some baby food!!
