They seemed to have a great time. Both watched the show quietly but intently... and did participate some when asked to clap or yell something. It was focused on The Incredibles taking a family vacation to Disney. Syndrome was there, of course, and Ethan was not at all happy about that. Fortunately, The Incredibles saved the day!
Watching the show...

A rub dub, just relaxing in the tub...
Not too old yet for bath shots (of the boys)! Daddy is a minimalist... thus the few toys. Mommy just throws them all (50 or so) in. Daddy also wouldn't go for the funny shampoo head shots... he can be such a party pooper sometimes!

Security cameras captured these still photos of the crime:

Collin saw this and came sprinting over (which is a thundering noise for those of you who haven't heard it) to get in on the action. They both played with these three baggies for a half hour! Scrunching them, trading them back and forth, fighting over them and taking turns sticking them into the different drawers.
By the time I ran for my camera, he had my cell phone. I hope that explains any calls from me that you might have received with just heavy breathing on this end.

First it was Valentine's Day. I hope you all had a wonderful day with your loved ones.
Second, we had Papa and Grammy Moore over to celebrate their birthdays (which were/are last Wednesday and tomorrow respectively). Happy Birthday!
Blowing out candles...
Third, the twins turned 18 months old! I think I realized just this week that they are now toddlers and not babies. Part of me is sad to say that... my babies are growing up. It happens so fast. I don't think I am going to stop calling them "my babies" just yet though... so humor me.
I thought everyone might like to see some photos from birth until now, to see how much they have changed and grown.

While eating it, he was very pleased with himself and his creation. All the boys enjoyed it actually.
Yes, the above is our goofy little ham... do you see why it's so hard to get decent photos?!

This afternoon, Steve and I were playing with the twins in the family room and Ethan was on the computer in the living room playing a game. Lauren came downstairs, stopped in the living room to talk to Ethan and then walked over to us with a somewhat concerned look on her face. She said, "Um... did you know that Ethan was playing on the computer wearing nothing but his socks?" After all three of us laughed... Steve said, "Get your camera...!" Ahhhh, memories.

Well, Collin looks more like he is a 1990's skateboard throw back with his LONG bangs and Ethan just gets bushy. Lauren is the only one who can still look good no matter what.By the way, in case any of you who have known me for a long time think that I purposely am grooming Oliver to look like a Beatle - that is not so. True I did have quite an affinity for all things Beatle (especially involving Paul) in my younger days. But I haven't been a Club Sandwich fan club member since 1996, really. It is also true that I tried very hard to convince Steve to name Collin - Collin McCartney Moore (which obviously did not work - but doesn't it flow nicely?) And it is also true that if Sir Paul would ask me to be his third wife I would graciously accept. Oh don't feel bad for Steve. If Paul McCartney asked him for his hand in marriage, Steve would accept as well - come on people - it's Sir Paul McCartney!!! But regardless, none of that is why Oliver currently looks like a Beatle... I swear...

Collin has been attempting a step here and there for over a month. Two weeks ago he became adamant about standing up in the middle of the room by himself to where he would do it over and over and over and...etc... again (but not for video cameras!!!). Sometimes he would fall immediately, sometimes take a step or two before falling, but he just got right back up every time. He is now walking consistently at least five steps. He is best at accomplishing this when he is standing holding onto something and then walking away, rather than standing up in the middle of the room and walking.
He is SUPER proud of himself when he does this (you can hear his heavy excited breathing in the video if you listen closely)... it is so cute to see his excitement!
