Manuel Negrete (Mexico v Bulgaria) voted the Greatest World Cup Goal ever

We welcomed identical twin daughters into the world. Although they had to spend some time in the neonatal unit, having been born at 33 weeks, they fought really hard and unexpectedly got themselves strong enough to come home before the start of the tournament.
