LONG overdue

Well we are LONG overdue for an update! lol I guess life got away from us and I have not found the time to post in 15 months. Lot's has changes since December of 2009. All the kids have grown and changed so much! Nicholas just had his 6th birthday, seriously where have the last 6 years went?!? Last July we bought a new house. It's tiny but it's ours :) We have a 1/2 acre lot and the backyard is HUGE! We can't wait for the weather to finally break and get a new play scape up. The triplets are 2 & 1/2 and we are planning a big 3rd birthday bash for the summer.

We went to Disney world for the first time with all the kids last month and it was AWESOME!!! We drove and that was not so awesome but once we got there things could not have been better. We also went to Lakeland FL to see the Detroit Tigers spring training and we drove over to the ocean and got to see the last launch of the Discovery and that was AMAZING. So I plan to post a bit more often ;)

My pictures are in reverse order but I guess I have been gone so long I forgot how to do this :)

Happy December

Well Happy December to all!! I have every good intention on blogging more often but when I think of it I am just to tired or busy to get it done. So When I do make a new post I will try to make it a good one :)
Cooper had minor surgery to have tubes put in his ears on Nov 30th and everything went well and hopefully we will be good to go now. I took him back to the OR at 10:00 and we were in the van on the way home at 10:45!! It was quick and they had said by the afternoon we would not even know he had anything done. And as they said he was 100%. He did enjoy being an only child for part of the day. The other 3 kids stayed over night at my mom's and when I brought them home Cooper was not happy to have to share toy's or mom and dad. But I'm sure he missed his brother's and sister, or at least I hope so :)
Yesterday we took everyone to see SANTA!!! It was good, no tears but no smiles. Much better than I thought things would go. lol After that we went to the little play area and let them run around and play a bit and they really enjoyed that. There were only a few kids there which was good because I was so worried that they were going to pick up some germs and get sick. If I could have followed them around with some clorox wipes I would have ;)

Here are some pics from the other night of bath time fun and a group shot.

I'm Back!!!

Thanks to my sister in law's boyfriend Matt we now have a working computer again!!! I know you don't read this but thanks Matt!!! I seem to have bad luck with computers. When I was pregnant with the triplets our desktop got a virus and crashed but we never got it fixed because Clyde got me a lap top for all those day's spent in bed and on the couch baking the babies well of course at the most inopportune time the laptop dies and no Internet connection for me:( But all is well and I now have a connection to the world:)

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!! The kids and I went to my mom's and had the best time. I didn't take any pictures, but I will get some up ASAP! Cooper is having surgery on Monday to have tubes put in his ears, so look for some pics sometime next week.

Halloween and other stuff

So I have a lot of pictures on this much needed update. The babies are now almost 16 months old and doing GREAT!!! Cooper is the only one with a few issues. He is not gaining weight like the Dr would like so they did a bunch of blood work and it all came back normal, so we will wait till his next visit in January and See how much he gains and go from there. Cooper also is going to be getting tubes in his ears. He has had a bunch of ear infections in the last several months and we went to a ENT and his ears are still fluid filled and he was worried he is not hearing like he should and it might affect his speech if it is not taken care of.
So here is a slew of pictures from the last few months.

Just checking in

Hello, I know the posts are few and far between, but as many of you know life with 15 month old triplets plus a 4 year old can be a little hectic. We have just been going on with life, Nick has school three day's a week and the rest gets busy with this, that and the other.

Last weekend we went to the Logan triplet's first birthday party, it was a lot of fun!!! My mom went with me so I was not alone with all 4. It was at a farm and was super cool, we will be return visitors for sure!!

The weekend before that we my mom and I took the kids to greenfield village for the farmers market and ended up spending most of the day there. When we got in the car it was 4:00 we had spent 5 hours there and everyone was super good. We drew a lot of attention and when we were in the farmers market Nicholas told a lady that we had 5 babies not 3!!! He thinks that him and his cat are the 2 extra. LOL I was quick to correct him as she looked around for the other 2.

Other than that all is well. Just getting ready for Halloween and then the holiday's. Clyde started afternoons today and all three little one's have snotty nose's. I will try and add some pictures soon.

I have not fallen off the face of the earth

I promise I did not fall off the face of the earth. We have just been busy settling in and living life. Nicholas started school last Wednesday and he LOVES it. The teachers were laughing at us today when I dropped him off. He was so excited to get into class that when I asked him for a kiss he kissed the air instead of me and RAN into class. LOL Nicholas on his first day.

As for the little ones, all is well. We officially have a walker!!! JACKSON takes first prize as in everything else so far. LOL It is so weird to see him walking. Ella and Cooper are not far behind. Cooper had been taking 3-4 steps so I give it another week or so. Miss Ella is just cautious, I think she can secretly walk she just doesn't want to. The kids LOVE the bounce and spin zebra and fight over who gets to ride. Now that Jack can get on by himself he wins if we are not right there.

Don't let the face fool you, he LOVES it!!!

He will draw blood to get a ride.

Little miss happy.
I will try really hard to update more often. It's amazing how busy life gets. We will have a lot of outings between now and the end of the year so lot's to blog about.

Catch up

So the last few weeks have been a whirl wind of stress around here but things are finally calming down and we are settling into our new place. Let's see, I think Jackson will be the first to walk since every day this week he has taken 3 or 4 steps all by himself!!! I think he can do it, he just gets so excited and lunges forward before he has his balance. Ella and Cooper are doing good also but nothing new to report.

We are on the search for a new preschool for Nicholas, so if you are in the Plymouth area and have a recommendation please let me know. We are going to look at one on Tuesday, but I think they are out of our price range. Unless I want to help out every day in school, but that is neither a break for Nick or me and with three little ones at home it's nearly impossible.

I am still looking for my camera cord to upload pictures, check back this week.
