A Sweet Time with Sugar

A couple weeks ago, Tim went on a little vacation to Colorado to celebrate his birthday!  He did some fishing, climbed a 14,000 ft mountain, and spent some quality time with good friends.  I am so thrilled that he was able to go and enjoy a few days in the cooler weather doing the things that he loves to do most.

My mom (aka "Sugar") came to help me with the babies while Tim was gone.  My mom calls the twins her "Sugar Babies."  They love it!

Rhett and Rhys loved having Sugar here with us!  Sugar is a wonderful grandma and loves spending time with the twins.  I love watching her with them.  R & R think she is really good at lots of things.

She is good at giving baths.

Sugar gives Rhys a relaxing bath!

She is good at drying babies off.

She is good at after bath cuddling.

She is good at reading books.

She is really, really good at changing diapers.  And really fast.

She is good at giving bottles.

She is good at feeding solids, too.

love this pic of Rhys looking up at Sugar!

She is good at cuddling.

I am so thankful for my mom!  We had such a great week together!  Not only did she take care of the babies, she also took care of me.  She cleaned, cooked, did laundry, and babysat so I could get out of the house.  Thank you Sugar!  We love you!


  1. What a sweet grandma. I know she enjoyed every
    minute with her Sugar Babies, and it is obvious that the twins LOVE their Sugar! They are so beautiful and adorable and precious!

  2. Moms are the best! My mom stayed for an entire week a month ago after our second child was born and it was great! She did all of the wonderful things you described of your mom. Now we just have to remember to do these things for our daughters in 30 years! ;)

  3. I love, love, love this post! I love Sugar too. I'd sure love to see you all soon. You all are just too precious.
