True Story: I Won the Lottery

Image
Alright, so you think I won the money lottery. Fair enough, that is the title of my post. But the truth is that I won the BABY lottery! And that is so much better than the money lottery. You probably think that is a ridiculous statement, but in my world its the truth. Because I am pregnant, not with one baby, but with TWO! In my world, that is the most amazing news I could have ever gotten.

See, I am not a cute, perky pregnant lady. I am a sleepy, cranky pregnant lady whose patience thins as her belly grows. For this reason, the fact that I am getting two snuggly babies out of the deal instead of one is amazing news!

Twins don't run in my family, and I had no reason to expect this. But at my first ultrasound the ultrasound tech casually said, "Alright, here is the baby and the heartbeat. And...here is the other baby, and the other heartbeat."

You guys? I nearly jumped through the roof. I was like, "WHAT???????" And then I started laughing and crying all at the …

I Have Something to Say

Unfortunately for me, all I know how to say in Russian is "What time does the train leave the station?" and I can't even write that in Russian for you because I don't know how to spell it. I'm sorry, I feel I have let you do…

Family Friendly Fun in Las Vegas

Las Vegas is known for a lot of things, mainly involving entertainment for adults. But families do actually live here, and what do they do for entertainment? This is the eternal question for our family, because we want to make sure that we are protecting our four kids from the inappropriate things that are out there. These days even things that are supposedly family-friendly reveal values that are less than wholesome.

Fortunately for my family, and for all you families out there with young kids, there is a beautifully traditional attraction here in Las Vegas, but it will only be here for a few more days. I am talking about the circus! And more specifically, Circus Vargas. We went down to Boca Park yesterday, where the girls and I were able to enjoy the show together. 
They were so excited when they spotted the big top tent! And the first thing that saw made me fall in love with Circus Vargas - the looks on the girls' faces when we walked in there! We were a little late because our…
