Can We Talk About Poop? (Just One More Time!)

I can't promise that this will be the last time. In fact, I'm quite sure it won't be the last time. But can we talk about poop just one more time?
I won't bore you with the details of what happened yesterday. I'll just say it involved one (or possibly both) babies. And a lot of poop in my living room. It happened while I was taking a much-needed shower and David was "watching" the kids. One of the babies had an incident and it was not pretty. It's a darn good thing that I ordered a carpet cleaner from Amazon after returning my mom's carpet cleaner to her a few weeks ago. It's due to arrive today and needless to say, it will be used immediately.
Anyway, I'll get to the point.

One year and 3 months after Leila stopped wearing diapers, Sarah has finally followed suit.

Yes folks, Sarah is diaper-free!!!!!!!!!

(Can you tell I'm excited????)
She hasn't worn a diaper in over 2 weeks, even at night. I didn't believe it at first, but there's been no poopy underwear and no diapers. I just hadn't caught her in the act... until today. Joshua came running and told me that she was pooping and I sprinted up the stairs, two at a time. I got to the bathroom just in time to witness the miracle. And yes, it's a miracle.
I'm not sure what finally caused Sarah's poop to "let her" go in the potty. I suspect it may have been when I told that she couldn't wear diapers to ballet class. Suddenly she was using the potty! And to top it all off, she's staying dry all night. Every night. Which is good since she's usually in my bed by 4 am every morning. Leila is still not staying dry at night. How can identical twins be on such different time lines?
Whatever the reason, I can just say that I am giddy. Now I will gladly sell all of the girly diapers and stock up on diapers for the babies. (Any favorite diaper suggestions for me? I've been out of the loop for awhile.)

Sarah wants to take a trip to Disney World. I will tell you that I almost said "yes" because that is how proud I am of her! I think we'll settle for a trip to Sesame Place in the spring. For now, the girls are anxiously looking forward to their ballet classes that are supposed to start next week.

Of course the classes will be canceled. They were canceled last week due to snow. And now we're getting another 2 feet of snow this weekend. That follows the 8 inches we got a few days ago and precedes the predicted snow that will fall next Tuesday. That's 4 storms in 2 weeks. And the biggest storms always hit on the weekends!

I'll be certifiable by the time spring comes. I have cabin fever something awful. I haven't left my house since last Friday and probably won't until next Friday. I feel trapped, like a caged animal. And I still don't have a snow shovel! Can I call in the National Guard to dig me out? It feels like an emergency to me.
Anyone in Virginia want to come get snowed in at my place? I have hot chocolate. And I promise not to talk about poop.
