Enough said

We had Thanksgiving dinner at Joe and BreAnne's house this year. We had big plans to relax, watch some parade and play some games. All I have to say is that there is no relaxing with four babies in the house. I'm sure the madness has just started!
We tried to take a family picture about 100 times. Someone was always crying, making stupid faces or insisting on having their sword in the picture. Note Sean making it even more difficult it the background.This picture about sums it up.

Thankful for

I had a long day today. Getting ready for the holidays is wearing me out already! I was in a bad mood when Mike got home today. He knows me so well and picks up on what I need before I even know that I need it. He made me take a bath with a glass of wine and a stack of magazines while he took over with the babies. As I was relaxing with bubbles and Mothering mag (which I love by the way) I could hear Mike reading Dr. Seuss to the boys. It made me get tears in my eyes. I just want to say that I am so thankful for my amazing husband. I had no idea at this time last year how great of a dad he would be!

I haven't done anything blog worthy lately but wanted to post a cute picture-see them holding hands? We stayed in our jammies for way too long today. I am loving job sharing (although I haven't seen my paycheck yet). It gives me the best of both worlds-pjs with the boys some and a little out in the world time for myself!

Something to document

For the first time in days . . . sleeping at the same time! Maybe I can eat something, do laundry, watch a TV program???? The possibilities are endless. Please don't call the SIDS police, I know babies are supposted to sleep on their backs. Why don't you come over and try to make them?

Risky business

Fertility treatments are a scary game to play. When Mike and I were trying to get pregnant I never read the fine print. I gave myself the shots and popped the pills never thinking that multiples could be in my future. What an idiot. June brought Tash over for a bit the other day while she ran errands. I changed all of their diapers assembly line style then thanked the Lord that I only had two eggs! I don't think triplets are my style.

The celebration continues . . .

Everyone came to dinner at my house for another celebration of Bree's birthday. K&M went to bed early that night. It's going to be wild here pretty soon with all four of the boys. I'm so lucky to have a family that I love AND can have fun with. I know many people dread their family functions but I'd rather hang out with my sisters than anyone!

Who is having a birthday?

BreAnne turned 28 this weekend. I felt like it was my birthday-I got to eat filet and lobster and get a babysitter! Thanks Bree . . .

I went back to work this week. It was really nice to get back to "real life". I am definitely easing my way into things by job sharing. I think I am really going to like it! I also love the fact that my class has 14 students. Teaching seems like a breeze after four months of taking care of twins! I love my friends at work and even got to go out to lunch on Friday!
My good friend Lorisha was supposed to babysit the boys at her house. We had the whole situation worked out for months. However, the best laid plans often fail! Lorisha got pregnant (with a boy-yay!) and her belly combined with transportation issues made it tricky to babysit.
After a night of tossing, turning and worrying, I think we have a plan. Mike has a friend that recently bought a house on the same block as my school. His wife is a stay at home mom and wants to watch K&M (crazy lady). I'm just praying that everything works out and the babies are safe and happy at her house.
I was definitely ready for the weekend after my stressful week. When my mom invited us to meet her and Mark for margaritas Saturday afternoon I was all over it. The boys loved being outside on the patio and hanging out with their Papa and Nana!

Last week Mike shut down the laptop before bed. Give the guy a piece of bubblegum and some duct tape and he can fix anything but he is seriously challenged when it comes to computers. When I woke up in the morning the computer was a mess. Of course, I freaked out on him blaming him right away. He WAS the last one that touched it. Turns out the whole hard drive was bad. This was in no way, shape or form Mike's fault-oops. I'm sure he has done something lately that I missed freaking out over though so we can call it even.

So I just got my computer back and can't wait to share a bunch of cute pictures and stories! And I may just complain just a little too . . .
