I love giving books for Christmas because they basically last forever, and they can be passed down from generation to generation. Now is that eco-friendly re-using, or what?
Here are Tristin and Tyler’s Top 5 Christmas Books! With a little commentary from the boyz themselves!
1. THE POLAR EXPRESS By: Chris Van Allsburg
A long adventure-filled train ride to the North Pole. Boy does T&T love this movie and the book. What amazing imagery! Tyler’s favorite part: “When the kids finally get to see Santa after the long trip!”
2. THE COOLEST SNOW MAN EVER By: Siobhan Ciminera
This book has stickers and holiday stencils. Done. Tristin’s favorite part: “This book has stickers and stencils!”
3. A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS By: Charles M. Schulz
Who doesn’t love Charlie Brown? The poor guy! Even at Christmas he has a hard time! I love that all of Charlie Brown’s books have some sort of conflict, but in the end, it’s all resolved — just the way life should be! Tyler’s favorite part: “I like when Charlie goes to visit Lucy for help in her psychiatry booth. Charlie had to pay 5 cents for help. That’s a lot!”
4. FANCY NANCY’S SPLENDIFEROUS CHRISTMAS By: Jane O’Connor
You can never go wrong with a ton of accessories and a smile! Fancy Nancy is the best, and always aims to please. Tristin’s favorite part: “I like when Fancy Nancy decorates the tree, she is so good at it!”
5. THE NIGHT BEFORE THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS By: Natasha Wing
Everything goes wrong for this spunky family of four this holiday season, but in the end it reminder the family what is most important: L.O.V.E.
Tyler’s favorite part: “I like when the cat and mouse chase eachother and they ruin the house, including the Christmas tree! Yikes!”

Tristin and Tyler are excited to get started on their healthy eating campaign to encourage kids to eat more fruits and vegetables and get some exercise! Launching in February, the campaign will feature weeks of videos, blog posts and advice from your favorite twins and some pretty healthy friends on how to eat right and get movin’!
One of the episodes you will be happy to see during the campaign is the boyz interviewing the Super Sprowtz, the awesome vegetable super heros!
If you haven’t heard of the Super Sprowtz, you’ve been missing a WHOLE LOTTA FUN! Super Sprowtz creator Radha Agrawal is making kids LOVE their veggies by using books, hand puppets and soon TV (YAY!) to tell compelling stories about vegetables who save the day!
Oh! Almost forgot — if you’re visiting The Children’s Museum of Manhattan anytime soon, be sure to check out the Super Sprowtz at the Eat Sleep Play exhibit! It’s so cool!
Check this fun video out and stay tuned for more coming soon!

Okay so, was I the only one who noticed that the weather in NYC yesterday was ahhmazing? Sort of weird since the boyz have been wearing down jackets for two weeks, but whose complaining?
WHAT THEY WORE
Nothing says Fall better than a GAP barn jacket with a cordoroy collar and elbow pads. Yesterday I added button down shirts from Ralph Lauren, some jeans and presto, the boyz were ready for the day!
Oh, the boys decided to pull out the shades – what do you think?
Did you have nice weather too? What did you put on the kids?

Tristin and Tyler love showing you guys Kwik Klips, fun videos under 3 minutes that make you and the kiddos smile! :) In this week’s Kwik Klip, the boyz meet the ladies of Moms and the City and their little ones, at a screening of the new movie THE MUPPETS!
The entire MUPPETS gang is back again and they are putting together an amazing musical for all ages!
The movie was great fun. Just what I remember about the Muppets from the good ole’ days: celebrity cameos, singing, dancing and a lot of corky jokes! I felt like a kid again!
After you stuff your face with turkey (and everything else) on Thanksgiving, make sure to take the kids to see the movie! It opens in theatres on Thanksgiving Day, November 23, 2011. Thanks to Moms and the City for the invitation!
NOW, CHECK OUT THE VIDEO and ask yourself:
WHOSE YOUR FAVORITE MUPPET?
