Aliens among us

Our friends Michael & Jean are coming over for dinner tonight along with their kids.   They have three kids, Julian, who is 5 1/2, and twins Dylan and Olivia, who are 27 months.  In the previous post I had said I would have liked to be able to say I had a whole bunch of kids.  But what I realized this week as I was getting ready for their visit is that I don't know children.  Not at all. What do they like to do?  What do they eat?  What toys are age appropriate?  Will they freak out when they see my 110 pound dog?  When shopping for Christmas gits for kids is it okay to buy yourself some toys too?

Because of circumstances we haven't seen them in over a year.  And it was at their house.  With their toys and food and pets.  We'll see how I do this year!
