Disneyland, Here We Come!

We are headed to Disneyland in a month! We leave on February 28 and we will spend the next week at Disneyland for the kids birthdays. The hotels were pretty booked up the week of their actual birthday so we are celebrating a few weeks early. We are just so excited we can hardly stand it. We are going with our friends the Hupps which is going to make it even more fun! This time we will get to take the kids on so many more rides because they are taller! And Dave and I will get to go on some rides together because we are going with friends and we can take turns watching each others kids. Wahoo! Hurry up and pass February. We want to go on vacation!

Dave and the Triplets

We can't believe how big they are. We used to hold all three when they were little and they fit just perfectly on our laps. Dave won't be able to do this for very much longer. We love our sweet triplets! How did we get so blessed?

Owen Update

My baby turned 4 months old last week. I can hardly believe it. The time goes by so fast! We took him to the doctor for his checkup last Monday and he weighed in at a whopping 14.3 lbs and he measured 23 3/4" long. He's in the 15th percentile for height and the 30th for weight. So, he is still small, but nothing compared to my tiny triplets. They maybe weighed 10 pounds at 4 months. And Owen also rolled over January 3! I have been trying to catch it on video every since but he won't perform. Hopefully soon I'll have a video of it to post.

Owen was completely healthy last Monday and then the cold started on Wednesday. Dave and I have not slept a full night now for 6 nights. And my poor baby. He is finally starting to get better, but that cough is so sad. Well, I guess he had to build up antibodies sometime huh? This picture of him shows his little red nose from being wiped and suctioned so much. Poor thing.

Last Playdate

Connor made a really great friend last year named Porter. Porter just moved to Florida, but he and Connor got to have one last fun playdate. They played trains, cars, star wars, Mickey Mouse, and everything else little boys play. THey had a great time and Connor sure will miss him.

(Connor ate a cupcake with purple frosting.)

Happy Birthday Cade!

My cute, sweet, preemie nephew Cade turned 1! He is so adorable and we all just love him to pieces. He was the first of 4 grandsons born into our family this past year. What a fun year it has been.

New Year's 2010

We did not have a party this year because we have a new baby this year. But we did end up partying with our friends the Hupps. We played games, ate, and chatted. We all had a good time! The triplets even stayed up past midnight. They wanted to read books when we got home! Silly kids.

Happy New Year Everyone. Hope that it is a great one!

Lost Tooth

Brooke lost her first tooth on December 29, 2009! Literally. After it fell out, she carried it around in a little pillow with a bag on it and kept pulling her tooth out to look at it. I told her she would lose it and she did! So, she wrote a note to the tooth fairy instead. It was so cute. The tooth fairy must have had sympathy for her because she got $2! Way to go Brooke.

This is how the tooth fairy found her when she went to get the note. I don't know how she didn't wake up! (The kids were having a sleepover on the futon mattress.)

We had a great Christmas this year! It was so fun to have Owen here this year and the kids are at the perfect age for the MAGIC! We spent Christmas Eve at our house where we ate finger foods, sprinkled reindeer food on the front yard, put out cookies and a letter for Santa, sang Christmas carols, and acted out the Nativity. Owen got to be Baby Jesus which is really special. The kids and Dave and I took turns being all the other figures in the Nativity. It is so important to us that the kids remember what Christmas is all about.

On Christmas morning, the kids came and got us up at about 7:00. Not too bad. We can handle that time. Santa brought the kids the toys they asked for and a few other things too. We went to Grandma Burrahm's house for Christmas dinner and opened more presents. Later that night we went toGrandma Grant's house to open even more presents. The kids are spoiled.

We had a great lazy week doing nothing and enjoying the spoils of Christmas. I hope all of yours was a good one too!
