Fall update

The Anderson family is doing great! RUF at TCU is so much fun. We are entering our 4th year and are settled in our house, in the city, and on campus. We know the rhythms of the school year well, and we will be seeing our freshmen graduate this year, which is unbelievable! We love working with college students, and the campus is all abuzz about our new relationship series! Check out Ryan's podcasts here.
 The girls are almost 2.5 years old, and we are at that point now where twins really are easier than having 2 singletons because we are not juggling 2 different stages & schedules, and also, they play together. They are so much fun! Evangeline loves to sing, twirl, wear her Elsa dress, climb, dig in the dirt, read, and do crafts. Audrey loves to paint, run, jump on the bed, take all the pillows off the couch, and talk about her feelings :). We started a little homeschool curriculum this fall called ABCJesuslovesme (free online) that we do a few times a week. The girls love it, and are learning a lot. We are working on potty training, letters, numbers, shapes, colors, manners, the creation story, and saying our name.
 In terms of lasting TTTS effects, praise God, we do not see anything, aside from the obvious 10 pound weight difference. It is hard for me to believe, after all they went through, that the size difference is the worst of it. If it is, that is absolutely miraculous! And maybe it's not…but whatever comes down the road, we continue to believe that God is good to us and will meet us and our children. We are so grateful, regardless.
The girls obviously love Frozen, so we had a few toddler girlfriends over (Anna Zane we missed you!) for dinner, and to meet Queen Elsa! Lucky for us, Megan is one of our TCU RUF students, who doubles as Queen Elsa for local Frozen parties in her spare time :).

Do you wanna build a snowman?
We were a little unsure of Miss Elsa.

Girls! It's ELSA, not the boringest person on Earth! Seriously!

movie time for princesses = cocktail time for mamas :)

Praise God for all these amazing blessings! We are so thankful for the big victories and the little joys.
Thank you for checkin in on us! XO
