Royer Entertainment

Everyday is something new at our house.  They really do entertain us.  We usually never capture the good stuff on video but occasionally they let will perform for the camera.  Here are some cute ones that we have gotten recently.  

As you know, they have always been dancers, but more recently they have gotten into hand holding and dancing with each other.  It is the cutest thing.  They start dancing and laughing.  :)
I play rock a bye baby with them and when it is time for the cradle to fall, I drop them on the couch.  They love this game.  Payton caught on to the game and started playing it with her babies.  So funny!
Jillian has started to require assigned seats at meal time and in the car.  I don't know why she has to have this particular seat, but she WILL NOT sit anywhere else.  They always say to choose your battles,  this is one we usually give in to, but it can be fun to mess with her and see her reaction.  

Payton is our climber.  When we were home for Thanksgiving she managed to get out of every place we put her in.  We knew it wouldn't be long before she was doing it at home too.  She is already in a big girl bed because she climbs out of the crib.  Now she is starting on the gates.  She wouldn't do this while I was watching so I had to hide the camera and pretend I wasn't paying attention.  It is funny and scary all at the same time.    

They are staring to talk a lot more and even putting two words together.  We are trying to teach them that using words are much more powerful than whining.  It is a work in progress, but here are some of the new words we have learned recently and some old ones that we are perfecting.  

Christmas 2011

I know this post is WAY overdue, but we have been very busy around here.  Everyday I would tell myself I was going to do it and then something else would come up.  We had a really great Christmas.  My mom and grandma came down on Christmas Eve and stayed for the week so it was nice to have those extra hands. It was definitely different from last year.  Last year the girls were more interested in the paper this year they actually enjoyed the toys and presents.  They had a lot of fun opening up ALL their gifts.  As usually they were overwhelmed with so many presents, but they are so blessed to have so many people that love them and just want to shower them with presents.  This year was definitely an Elmo Christmas.  Recently they have really gotten into Sesame Street.  They absolutely love Elmo!  Here are mostly videos and a few still pictures of Christmas Eve with the Byrnes and Christmas Day with the family.
