Marcia Cross Takes Her Twin Girls To See Santa!

Marcia Cross

Marcia Cross, 45, and Tom Mahoney took their ten-month-old daughters Eden and Savannah to an LA shopping mall to get their picture taken with Santa. So sweet!

“It’s all new,” she said. “It’s our first Christmas together as a family and it’s probably going to be sort of quiet. I want to go out and take a hike in the woods and have a day of outdoors activities. Just all kids, all day. It will be fun.”

    JJ since you asked, I am 26. By birthday is in July. Im sorry, i cant believe you have no Idea who Kimora Lee Simmions is…you really must be living under a rock. The Bradford exchange has lovely things in it. I collect all of the Tinkerball figurines for my daughter.

    Oriana, i love gone with the wind! Im an old soul i guess you can say!!

    Reality check for #78:

    Read this article below and come to the realization that you KimoKari are at the pinnacle of contributing to global warming among other things. FYI – you just showed how narrow-minded and prejudiced you really are with your statement above about “pieces that are knit by hand and homegrown from the organic yucca growing in the backyard.” Shame on you Mommy Dearest for showing the world what an ignorant B**ch you really are.

    Taken from the New York Times:

    “The declaration from something called the Handmade Consortium materialized on a Web site called buyhandmade.org in late October. “I pledge to buy handmade this holiday season, and request that others do the same for me,” it said, and you could type in your name to “sign” on; within a few weeks, more than 6,500 people had done so. “Buying handmade is better for people,” a statement on the site read in part, and “better for the environment,” because mass production is a “major cause” of global warming, among other things. There were links to an anti-sweatshop site and a Wal-Mart watchdog site…The ascendancy of chain-store culture and global manufacturing has left us dressing, furnishing and decorating alike…crafting remains more of a philosophy, and its satisfactions are in participation, not consumption…the practice satisfies the urge to create, values feminine art forms, provides relief from the digital world and, yes, is a form of “political statement” against the dehumanizing global supply chain.”

    I like Gene Simmons, I watched his show and I think he is a good and loving father. He doesn’t drink or smoke and I came to really like him. He has remained friends with both Cher and Diana Ross, both ex-girlfriends.

    Tia, I got Pleasures and Beautiful gift set boxes, I do like them both. I also have The Gone With the Wind Plate Collection from the Bradford Exchange, they are beautiful! I think the first plate sold at first for like $25.00, now valued at $400.00! I told my sister if I croak, please don’t let my husband put them in a yard sale for $1.00! I would die all over again!!!!

  4. Kimora and Kariah's Mommy says

    Omgosh JJ! Looks like we’re on here at the same time! That’s soooo exciting!

    Whoever the heck Gene Simmons is—-I don’t care. To fill in those oblivious to update-to-date fashion (namely YOU), Kimora Lee Simmons is the founder and owner of the Baby Phat Company. She was married to Russell Simmons and has two daughters from her marriage with him: Ming Lee and Aoki Lee.

    Apparently you’re living under a rock. These brands are the pinnacle of 21st century urban fashion…..not “anti-factory” pieces that are knit by hand and homegrown from the organic yucca growing in the backyard.

    Oh…and care to fill me in as to when downtown Atlanta became suburban?? LOL

    No, they’re not African. They’re African American. Someone who claims to be so socially conscious should know and utitlize the politically correct lingo. And NO I’m not African American as you seem to incessantly imply…..my husband is…I’m not….and I love traditionally “black” names.

  5. Jx2 says

    “I really like Baby Phat, Apple Bottoms, Rocawear–great urban brands!! ” blah blah blah

    ***The Cookie Cutter Collection…Made in China, Taiwan, Singapore, 3rd world impoverished nations…Shame Shame…

    The anti-factory approach is the 21st century fashion trend…nobody buys clothes from multinational corporations anymore…just suburban housewives who shop at outlet malls….

    I buy green – I buy organic – I buy fair-trade!!!!!!!!

  6. Jx2 says

    No KKK – I’m more influential than you care to admit..LOL
    You know what? I actually think you might have stolen the name Kimorah from this Gene Simmons person whoever he/she is…one thing is for sure…this person must be African…cuz only an Afro descendant would use the name Kimorah. Case in point – YOU! Just an observation…
    Pink! what a non-colour – uggg! Birds of a feather flock together 😉

  7. Kimora and Kariah's Mommy says

    Awww…thanks, guys. Seriously, post #60 just kind of “rolled off my back”. Our precious little baby is perfectly healthy, and I fully anticipate that he/she will be just as smart and beautiful as his/her sisters! But thanks again for reporting it.

    Oriana- yes, we will have three little ones close together. Don’t worry; I think we’re finished for a while; don’t worry either about my help- my wonderful foster sisters practically live at our home and are such great help…I’m soo blessed to have such a great family; and of course my husband is simply fantastic, but I’ve already gushed about him enough on here 😉

    Tia I LOVE Baby Phat products! (and I LOVE pink, too!) I really like Baby Phat, Apple Bottoms, Rocawear–great urban brands!! Sounds like you’re more than equiped with clothing for this next year. 🙂

    HAHAHAHAH JJ I see that my smiley face comment got to you, considering it’s no longer there! I’m even more influential than I thought. Btw…Kimora Lee Simmons is my daughter….LOL.

  8. Jx2 says

    Ummm Tia – how old are you? 21? 24? I can only imagine Paris Hilton would wear pink perfume…do you seriously wear pink perfume? Who is Kimora Lee Simmons? Is it Richard Simmons daughter? Or Gene Simmons wife?

    Okay – honestly now – the Bradford Exchange is for grannies…They sell ceramic figurines and plates with flowers on them and really tacky jewellery…stuff that Catherine Chancellor from Young & the Restless would like, or Zsa Zsa Gabor…it is totally not my scene…the indie art scene is more my thing…handmade and local crafts.

  9. Tia :) says

    Oriana, I LOVE anything from the Bradford Exchange. Very nice stuff. My coat is black…it’s dressy. Very nice..it keeps me warm. I also got lots of perfume. I like Baby Phat Goddess Perfume by Kimora Lee Simmons …so thats what i got! Lots of clothes, Pj’s, slippers..all of that stuff. Alyssa got too much…haha! We got my husband stuff for his xbox 360 and tools..all that good stuff 🙂

  10. Tia :) says

    Kimora and Kariah’s Mommy , im happy i made you smile! We’re actually trying for another…and once again..not complaining! hahaha!! Ignore comments from that a** Joey. It’s getting out of hand. She or he…whatever the hell it is, needs to get a life and get lost! Jealous much Joey? you are going to die alone you sick person.

  11. Jx2 says

    Kracker Jacks’ Mommy – Lamenting my absence and then taking it back and changing your mind…if that isn’t a hypocrite – what is?

    Ahem – how is it possible to be jealous of someone I have never met nor seen? Jealous of what? A virtual dialogue?

    By the way – I can’t stand Capricorns!!

  12. Nicki says

    I have reported comment #60, and hopefully it will be deleted. I am all for saying whatever but when it gets like the last line of that comment, I have to draw the line. Vile and hateful taunts on a baby site to fellow posters is unacceptable.
    Hopefully it will be deleted, and the trash that posted it banned.

  13. oriana says

    Three little ones close together, hope you will have some help in the beginning, you will be exhausted! Time to slow down, you can still “practice” and enjoy yourself though! Ha!

    We will all be praying for you and the little one! Who knows, it could come early so good to be prepared! Be careful with the spicy foods, leave those to me!!!! And Tia with her good Greek food!

  14. Kimora and Kariah's Mommy says

    Oriana…we are soooo looking forward to the birth of this baby, too! I’m ready as I’ll ever be…..I had all the suitcases packed, nursery decorated and in place, etc. well before Christmas. That way, if we had any surprises during the holiday season, everything would be ready to go! Kimora is really excited; little Kariah is only 17 months old, so she doesn’t fully understand the upcoming changes.

    My childbirth will be natural in the sense that it’s not a C-section (as far as we know at this point!), but I will definitely be receiving the epidural….bring on the drugs!!!

    No JJ dear; I’m a Capricorn…..not that I believe all that crap. Like the placement of the stars when I was born has effect on my personality and character!! lol bullshhhhh! Nearly everyone DOES love me…except for those overcome with jealously like you as I’ve already pointed out. When have I lied? How have I been a hypocrite? Not that I value your opinion, but I’m just curious as to how you’ve concocted all of these off-the-wall statements.
    Rest assured that I am now lamenting your presence. If I’m not a “fantabulous” mother, than this is the first I’ve heard it! I can either trust you or the people that I have contact with in real life……hmmmm tough choice….:should I trust JJ…or everyone else!? I’m stumped (insert sarcasm)! 😀

  15. Jx2 :) says

    Nickolodean…awww – that’s so sweet – I can see you’ve done your research – how else would you know about Hell’s availability housing market unless you’ve been there yourself…the question is “why did you come back”…unless…of course you are looking for recruits…now tell me Nickster what sort of accommodations would be available ?

  16. Nicki says

    60. Jx2 🙂 | December 29th, 2007 at 1:27 am…………………

    There is a special place in hell reserved just for you. I hope it doesn’t take you too long to get there.

  17. oriana says

    Now my comment is waiting moderation while this other trash is allowed! That is plain stupid! Just as stupid as #57 putting an h on the end of kimora’s mommy’s name!

  18. Generic name says

    Paghilom ra gud diha burikat!!
    banha ka’ayo ka ga dako lang na imong baba diha!!
    na’abot ang baho as imong baba diri sa balay oh!!
    kaligo ra gud haron ma bugnaw ang imong utok!!

    hello everyone!!
    hope we all have a blessed wonderful new year!!
    YEAR OF AN EARTH RAT IS COMING!!
    ——CHINESE FUNG SUI——

  19. Jx2 :) says

    Let me guess – you must be a Leo because only someone with Leo tendencies would be as arrogant as you are…you are so vain that you probably think this blog belongs to you…pu-leeze – Nicki needs to take off her rose-coloured glasses and see the person that you really are…a wolf in sheep’s clothing…when I was gone for a while YOU were one of the many that were lamenting my absence…you just want everyone to LOVE you and because I am not one of your worshippers you have a hard time accepting that, right? You are just a hypocrite and a liar and a two-faced snatch…You must be the one who is jealous – pot calling the kettle black….so run along KimKar to your little ones and feed them some sugar cookies and accept the fact that you will NEVER be the Fantabulous mother icon that you claim to be…the smiley face is there for a reason and clearly it got results…LOL…run along now – KimKar – soon to be mother-to-be of a Downs baby!

  20. Kimora and Kariah's Mommy says

    Hahahaha Tia I really appreciated your comment way back in the thread about how you tried to get pregnant with your daughter for a while, but it wasn’t too bad and you’re not complaining. LOL You little vixen! 😉

  21. Kimora and Kariah's Mommy says

    ^^^Don’t worry, Oriana…I know that wasn’t you! 🙂

    My Christmas was wonderful, too, Tia. My little girls proudly served their sugar cookies! (don’t worry, a more recent batch than I mentioned before!) I frequently see my family anyways, but being together with everyone was great…I love traditions!

    Yes! My due date is quickly approaching! The projected due date is Jan. 23. My husband took a picture of me each week during my pregnancy, so I have that documented. 🙂

    JJ…Nicki is NOT kissing up. You just wish that people could speak so highly of you. Btw, I thought that you said that you don’t read posts directed to others; obviously you just proved that to be false! Seriously, cut the jealously, and yes I said jealousy. When Joey hopped on board and started to diss me, you were quick to point out, “See, see see! I’m not only one who can’t stand Kimkar!” You obviously have a pole stuck up your butt due to the fact that you can’t find anything truly negative about me and that other people recognize me for my positive qualities.

    P.S. JJ…..I simply LOVE how you’ve added a smiley face to your posting name just like Tia has. What a wonderfully indirect form of admiration!

  22. oriana says

    By the way Kimorah’s Mommy…I do find you quite annoying some days. Quit taking about yourself already.

  23. oriana says

    Liza my Dear, it takes all kinds and sad to say, there are some on this site. Welcome to the fray and hope you can enjoy some of us. Hope you had a Merry Christmas!

  24. Jx2 :) says

    Liza Minnelli – I want my 15 minutes of FAME too ya know…I will stop when I am ready to stop like when it’s time to go to sleep…but until then, the night is young and I’m just getting started…besides, was I even talking to you? NO! So why are you talking to me or about me? huh?!

  25. Liza says

    Jx2, I don’t get it. I mean, I know I am relatively new here, but I don’t quite understand why you are taunting people who aren’t even talking to you or more importantly about you.

    Drop it, let it go, go have a nice day somewhere. But you do yourself a disservie by acting like a petulant child and continuing with this.

  26. Jx2 :) says

    Tia’s coat is the colour of diarrhea…pukey brown.

    Hmpf – Oriana do you think that your friend was trying to tell you something by sending you 15 bottles of scented lotion? Think about that one…! It’s like someone giving you mouthwash as a present or deodorant…why? because you smell…oink oink…cheezy whiz…butter ball.

    Okay, but seriously now…why don’t you cover yourself from head to toe with the cracker barrel products and gulp down the 15 tubes of scented lotion so that your insides will smell better than your outside…oh oh oh and then with the crystal glass menagerie you can stick them on your cheese covered body and play cowboys and indians…see the cheez will help the nik-naks stick better on you…I bet Amy Sedaris would approve of this technique!!

  27. oriana says

    I have a Curio cabinet full of Swavorski crystal that I collect, it is lovely but too much! I also got some Red Door cologne, it smells wonderful, I love the lotion also, I got 15 bottles of lotion so will be well stocked for the year! My friend in Alabama sent me two long flannel gowns, very pretty and warm and a box of stuff from the Cracker Barrel. Ha!

    Have you ever looked at any decorations from the Bradford Exchange? I got a beautiful Thomas Kinkaid Santa and Sleigh from a friend in Tenn.

    What color is your coat?

  28. Tia :) says

    Ohh i’ll ignore the 12 yr olds alright!

    I got a new coat, and other lovely things. There is LOTS of snow! It was a very nice christmas 🙂 What are you going to do with your crystal?

  29. oriana says

    HI Tia, I bet your house was cozy and comfy on Christmas! I can just picture it now, with all the snow outside. I am feeling better but weak, had a nice quiet day and just rested. I got some nice crystal, which is exactly what I didn’t need, no place to put any more!

    Cold today and rain expected for the weekend.

    Ignore the ignorance on here, they will soon get tired and go watch The Simpsons! Ha!

  30. Jx2 :) says

    #38 Nicki – xcuze me while I barf out the window…can you not spread it on a bit thicker than that???
    Talk about butt kissing…ad nauseam …BFF!!

    Tia’s Christmas was filled with stove top stuffing, shake ‘n bake, cheez whiz product on crackers and jell-o pudding with marshmallow fluff for dessert. Yum, can’t wait to hear all about the New Year days meal..LOL

  31. Tia :) says

    Kimora and Kariah’s Mommy , my christmas was wonderful. Filled with good food, family…it was lovely. How was yours? How are you feeling? your due date is coming up fast isnt it??

    Oriana, How was your christmas?? I hope you’re feeling better dear!

  32. Kimora and Kariah's Mommy says

    2teens3beans: I checked out that gallery…some very traumatized children..and a few dogs!

    Nicki: Thanks so much for your nice post. You never fail to be an encouragement to me….I think you have a good idea of who I am–amazing how that can emanate across the internet! I’m both flattered and thankful for your comments!

    Tia: I haven’t talked to you for a while…how was your Christmas?

    Holly G: That’s an incredible story you have to tell…I’m glad you were so blessed by your children and that they were sooo worth the wait and struggle. I myself am adopted and would like to adopt one day, so this topic is very close to my heart. Thanks for sharing!

  33. says

    I went through IVF five times and I can assure you that the adoption of my two children was far more difficult than the IVF’s. I fully researched IVF and felt safe as far as the hormones were concerned and I can assure that if I did conceive and STAY pregnant, my children would not have been “fake”. I have a hard time with people dissing ART…don’t knock it until you have walked a mile in my shoes.

    In retrospect…infertility is the BEST thing that ever happened to me. I would go through IVF 100 more times if it meant I was going to end up with my two beautiful children in the end. They were definitely the light at the end of my long, long tunnel.

  34. annie says

    I’m really happy for Marcia, she has the family she’s always wanted. This has turned into such a hate filled site.

  35. Tia :) says

    Kimora and Kariah’s Mommy, oooh yes, Alyssa was frightened. It didnt work out too well. Maybe next year!

    Hope Christmas was a wonderful time for you ladies!!

    As for Marcia Cross having help having her babies, i say Good for her!. I tried for a bit before i got pregnant with my daughter…it wasnt too bad…i wasnt complaining 😉 haha. What i can say is, if i wasnt able to have a child, i would have turned to IVF or somthing for help. More than anything else, i wanted to be a mother. Proabaly like Marcia….so good for her!!

  36. Nicki says

    Kimora and Kariah’s Mommy~Let me just say that I applaud you for that.(#34 POST)
    I have been so distrubed by parents making thier children, who are crying and looking for Mommy or Daddy as they are walking up to Santa, Why do they make the kids go through that? I am glad you were with your youngest and I’m sure it made for a great pic of all of you. Parents know if a child is comfortable or not………I have read many posts by you and I believe you are a wonderful parent (also a incrediably strong woman) Also you know who you are, and your girls will benefit from your wisdom. They are very lucky girls to have you as a strong Mom!

  37. Nicki says

    Liza~~ Thank you so much. I will check the website and see what stores carry them. Thank you again for giving me a direction to start to search for them.
    Thanks Liza.

  38. Ali says

    i also love the red shoes! LOL! new topic!!! YAY!

    grip, well said when you said that people should not ask others when they are are going to have a baby! that is a question that should be illegal! AGREED. the bottom line is none of us are perfect.we all seem to be decent people.

  39. Kimora and Kariah's Mommy says

    Awww…that’s a cute pic. I took my girls to see Santa this year; although we don’t focus on that aspect of Christmas, we still think Santa Claus is a nice story. Unfortunately, I had to be in the picture, too, because Kariah refused to come “unglued” from my hip! Tia, didn’t you mention a while ago that Alyssa was scared of Santa Claus, too?

    I don’t have much to contribute to the invitro/infertility conversation. The process has kind of been “bang, bang, bang” three kids in a row for me, but my heart truly goes out to all women who face this particular struggle.

  40. Liza says

    Nicki,

    Those shoes are the Pediped brand (www.pediped.com). I think the red ones are the Isabella shoe in patent leather. Their no longer listed on pediped’s website, but you can find them at piperlime.com.

    Hope this helps.

  41. Nicki says

    Grip~ I agree 1000% with what you said and this mostly.

    and telling my
    husband “I am done, I am not going to this.” Truthfully, it was less because I just did not want to hear the insensitive louts asking “When are YOU gong to have a baby?” for the umpteenth time. ***NOTE TO ALL **** Never ask anyone when they are having a baby… a) no ones business b) you never know what the story is….

    But I am just saying I can understand the pain people go thorugh. I also have a close family member who lost her child at 10 mos of age and I certainly did not fault her for taking a hiatus from the baby and child party scene for a while. In fact, I felt like crap when I had things for my child knowing how she’d be suffering. But she is a person who is the very picture of grace and she’s gone on and lives and celebrates all now…. but when we are at are weakest, we (meaning “all of us”) don’t make the best decisions.

    Sorry but this conversation wasn’t one I wanted to get into. But I totally agree with what Grip said.

    Does anyone know where I can get those little red shoes for my niece????

  42. Liza says

    Ali,
    Adoption is certainly a wonderful option, although, yes, it can be as emotionally difficult as bearing a child or undergoing fertility treatment, not to mention the finances involved. Adopting a toddler is great, although it can be especially difficult with attachment issues, but nonetheless, it’s an amazing thing to welcome a child into your home who might otherwise not have a family of their own.

    Pregnancy, even for the most fertile, isn’t always the right choice, sometimes adoption really is the best path towards parenthood.

    I’m not sure if Grip worded it quite right but I do agree. In the scheme of things, having a ruined shower is better than say, not having a shower at all. I if could choose whether to have a ruined shower or not be able to get pregnant at all, I’d, without a doubt, choose having my shower ruined. Yes, it would stink to have to deal with it, but better than the alternative.

  43. Grip says

    I can not say what you’ve gone thorugh, but I have had a dear friend call me prior to my child’s first birthday party and said she can not make it because happy as she was for me, she can not bear to sit through one more shower/party/thing when her heart was breaking because she was enduring her 5th year at trying to have a baby with nothing working. Did it suck not having her there? Yes. But I can put her needs above mine when she is suffering. Now, is that the classier way of handling your sorrow? Yes. Beats throwing a tantrum at a shower.

    I also went through a lot to have my child. And I did get to the end of my rope toward the end. I remember getting an ivite to a cousin’s baby shower (not a particularly close cousin) and telling my husband “I am done, I am not going to this.” Truthfully, it was less because I just did not want to hear the insensitive louts asking “When are YOU gong to have a baby?” for the umpteenth time. ***NOTE TO ALL **** Never ask anyone when they are having a baby… a) no ones business b) you never know what the story is….

    But I am just saying I can understand the pain people go thorugh. I also have a close family member who lost her child at 10 mos of age and I certainly did not fault her for taking a hiatus from the baby and child party scene for a while. In fact, I felt like crap when I had things for my child knowing how she’d be suffering. But she is a person who is the very picture of grace and she’s gone on and lives and celebrates all now…. but when we are at are weakest, we (meaning “all of us”) don’t make the best decisions.

  44. Ali says

    liza, i have enoyed this also.interesting…
    i got pregnant very easy with mine,but you will never ever see me get PREG again! i spent most of my pregnancy in the hospital. i would do it all over again to have her,just wont see me going through anymore….

    i would be more then willing to adopt… but they make that so hard! also, you stand achance that the mother may want to all of a sudden be mother… doing it international is very difficult as well.i do have a dream though of adopting 2 children. i would be even willing to adopt a 3 year old. i feel the need to have another one but not from pregnancy. i know it sounds crazy,but it is such a strong desire i have been having!

    be happy,
    ali

  45. Ali says

    grip…. we all have stories. let me know when your shower and party gets trashed over a tantrum.you go clean up cake all over the floor.bottom line is it is UNACCEPTABLE. until it happens to you shut up.

  46. Liza says

    Honestly Ali, I did not think you were “rotten”, I thought you were being carelessly insensitive. I appreciate that you’ve changed your tone and your wording. I have quite enjoyed the give and take of this conversation.

    I never even had an opinion about ART before watching others go through it, and then I started to do a lot of research so that I could be better informed, but mainly so I could be as supportive as possible. I also ended up being more familiar with the community and how they support each other. My opinion, for sure, is colored in part by my relationship with those friends.

    I just think that people have different paths to parenthood and none is more or less valid.

  47. D'Anna says

    Aww, I think those babies are too sweet. If they go hiking, it probably won’t be that cold, most of us are below freezing now and it sounds ridiculous, but I’m sure near LA it isn’t too bad.

    What a cute family!

  48. Grip says

    Ali, you should spend more time thanking God that you did not have to deal with infertility and less time judging those who have had to endure it. It is not an easy thing to go through and sometimes a little sensitivity on the part of everyone else is a good thing. A ruined baby shower is not the end of the world. It may not be great, but it’s not the end of the world. Knowing you may never have a child you longed for your entire life really does rank a little higher on the tragedy scale. I also don’t think you should call these or any other children fake…that is really just a horrible thing to say about any living, breathing child.

  49. Ali says

    i do not think i am so much against art as i am some of the people i have met. there comes a time when you have to be happy for someone else or at least not ruin it for them i should say…
    if i had a better experience then maybe it would have been different.my one friend had art i think ..and i sobbed from joy when she was preg! she was a joy when i was preg and i think the world of her. i just wish all were like her!
    i hope i proved to you i am not as rotten as i seem,lol

    be happy
    ali

  50. Liza says

    Thank You Ali. I fully support ART, but can understand that people are against it.

    I would say that for many infertile couples it can be quite painful to be around those who have children easily. I don’t think anyone means for it to affect their relationships with others but it undoubtedly does. Most of the people I know who have struggled with this have been completely supportive of their friends who were able to conceive without problems and are an active part of everyone else’s lives. There is maybe one person who has separated herself from us and chosen to create a distance that would othewise not be there. And yet we support her decision to do that. We can’t understand the pain she is undergoing, but we don’t take it personally. I think it is a way of protecting herself.

    As far as the kidnapping. Those (isolated) instances are horrible, but they aren’t being committed by infertile women in general. In fact, several of the women who have committed these crimes have been your run of the mill fertile myrtles, albeit with some form of mental illness. We should be more concerned with the fact that pregnant women are far more likely to be injured or killed by their partners.

  51. Nicki says

    AmyY~if you go to the lastest thread for Angelina on this website, you will see many links for many new pics, plus ones from today when the three older kids and Brad and Angie went to the movies. Enjoy.

  52. Nicki says

    I love the little red shoes on ?I don’t know if it is Eden or Savannah, but they are adorable. Anyone know who makes those shoes, I love the red and the bows. Very cute little girls, and the (little red shoes go tap tap tappin.) Sorry about the old movie line. Not many here will get it, and I only meant it about the red shoes, not the girl who wore them. I used to tap dance, and heard that from my Dad every time I had on my black tap shoes. It was meant to be funny.
    Very cute pic. Very cute twins. Looks like a loving happy family.

    you got it liza… i didn’t mean to be hurtful. i will not call them fake anymore…. i have a way with words,lol. the kidnapping thing does happen an awful lot though. quite a few stories about that. i also, wish that was not true but it is happening.
    you sound like a mom also and it can be very dangerous to be pregnant or have a new born when someone is so desperate. of course,not nearly all do that! i have actually gotten a few people through a very hard time when they were trying to have one. they ended up going to the clinic and doing the invitro…. i actually kept my comments to myself and was very supportive.i also did not bring my child up much cause i did not want to make them feel any worse.i am fresh but not cruel. it just kinda urked me tha tonce they were preg they were nicer to me and stopped making me feel awful for being able to have one.i feel as though and i blame myself for letting someone ruin the joy i should had had but someones jealousy really got into the way.i should have ended the friendship right then and there but stayed supportive. maybe, that is why i am so bitter.

    be happy,lol:)

    Well thank you Ali, I am quite happy with the decisios I have made in my life regarding my family. I merely asked that you give your opinion in a mature and respectful manner, and that you refrain from saying hurtful or judgemental things (like calling these babies “fake” or saying infertile women try to kidnap babies) in the process.

    jx2, I agree with your post, but i would also want to remind anyone on here that just under 50% of fertility problems are related to the male partner. that said, i think it is easy for those of us who perhaps haven’t had to struggle with this to wonder why anyone would want to go through pregnancy and childbirth, or those sleepless nights or the sore nipples, but then again, we wouldn’t sacrifice a second of it would we?

  55. Jx2 says

    Ali – are you saying that woman who are sterile should just “suck it up” and remain that way forever? Or are you only tolerant of adoption as an option for childless couples?
    There are many ways that a woman can become pregnant these days not just via IVF…there are surrogates that will carry a baby for a couple and then pass it over to the couple when the child is born…there are egg donor methods and sperm donors, etc…so, what I’m trying to understand is which one of those procedures seems fake to you?
    I’m glad there are alternative ways for a woman to become pregnant…and if they choose to have a child but couldn’t then I support scientific breakthroughs that allow a woman to experience the grueling pain of labour and childbirth and to have a baby make her nipples sore and chaffed from excessive breastfeeding…If that is what a woman wants then she should have that right – crazy as it may seem to actually want a screaming infant and sleepless nights – I guess women are willing to make sacrifices for the chance to have a baby!

    p.s. if someone was struggling with infertility then this would not be the place for them.

    i am finished on this topic and i think you got my point.
    once again be happy.

    What a lovely family. I like the way her husband helps. Marcia is blessed and appears to be a good mom.

    Your’s isn’t an opinion though, Ali, it’s judgement, and there is a difference. You fill your posts with snark and rude and judgemental comments. You say that children are “fake”. You liken infertile women to bank robbers. You make comments about inferile women killing pregnant women (wtf?).

    If you’re against any form of ART (which is easy to be when never having faced infertility), then say that, but do so in a respectful and non-judgemental fashion.

    And most infertile/subfertile women do not act the way you describe. In fact, I know quite a few women who have struggled with this issue and not one has acted like that although I know quite a few overly fertile women who have a tendency to be insensitive and ignorant towards infertile couples. You trivialize and belittle with your comments.

    I know from reading your posts that if I was struggling with infertility I wouldn’t want to be your friend because you would be entirely incapable of showing support or compassion.

    And like I said before, humans have been using herbs and other chemicals to enhance or restrict fertility for centuries. This is nothing new.

    well you know…. many of us that can get preg with no problems have been tormented by those who could not. tantrums at showers, ruined first parties,ect. even my cousin’s sister in law refused to look at her baby! keep in mind the baby was in intensive care. my friend had a co-worker slamming things cause she found out about her pregnancy. while i do feel bad…. you still cannot behave that way. look at how many pregnant woman almost had their babies stolen by people who had a hard time making them…..
    i guess this is how bank robbers feel ect….
    either way i do not like invitro(don’t have to) and it is not a miracle in anyway.i feel sorry for the kids. i would not want to be brought into this earth that way….especially frozen!!!! AUSTIN POWERS frozen in time.i respect your opinons and mine should be respected as well. that is what makes this country so great:)

    happy new year!!!
    best,
    ali

    Pardon me if Im wrong? But is IVF not her own eggs, sperm etc? For goodness sake, theyre still her children! Lets pray one day you dont need something like that! I think its a lovely picture x

  62. Liza says

    fake kids? i would if they are battery powered or they just need to be plugged into the wall to occasionally recharge. they look so real!

    really those babies are as real and as natural and healthy as a child born to two healthy 25 year olds who got pregnant through sex.

    the stuff she injected herself are hormones and other drugs meant to manipulate the hormonal balance. women have been using herbs and other thing to manipulate their hormones and fertility for centuries. just because ivf now exists, does not mean this it the first time that humans have tried to manipulate reproduction.

    ali, i hope you are never faced with the pain of infertility. that you never have to second guess your body or feel shame that it won’t do what it was designed to do.

  63. dori says

    of course you’re entitiled to your opinion
    but test tube babies have been around for over 20 years some of them are adults having children of their own
    happy new year to you too 😉

  64. Ali says

    dori, i did do the research and that is my opinion of it. i don’t have to agree with it and i know it is not natural in anyway… however i do wish them all the best and YES, the santa looks awesome and very real:))

    happy new year:)

  65. dori says

    Ali It’s called invitro fertilization and the children born from this procedure are perfectly normal. Why don’t you do some research before you make such ridiculous comments?
    The girls look adorable and that Santa looks so real!!!!

  66. TMcGill says

    What sweet pictures. It is great to see her with Tom and the girls. He is always hands-on, and they seem very happy.

    Best wishes for a healthy and happy 2008 for this wonderful family.

    (She does not seem “too old” to me. In fact, she is in great shape and decided to focus on family after building a successful career.)

  67. Cathi says

    i’m glad she didn’t dress the girls alike. but spending christmas day hiking in the woods doesn’t sound good to me. i’m glad i’m not part of her family!!

  68. Ali says

    too old to be a mother and nature knew it…. injected herself with a bunch of stuff that is not meant for our bodies.sorry folks we were intended to be created by science,frozen and in lab dishes not to mention having eggs vaccumed.she now has 2 fake kids. who knows what will happen later from that.

  69. JESS says

    THAT’S A GOOD LOOKING SANTA!
    WOW! THOSE GIRLS HAVE GOTTEN BIG QUICKLY.
    IT’S A SHAME HOW THEY SEEM TO GROW OVERNIGHT.
