Better late than never, Christmas part 2, 3 & 4

Gosh the holidays take a lot out of you. Christmas day was a mellow day at home and then Friday and Saturday we had family over. Friday Clyde's family came over and we had a nice evening. We had pizza and munchies and opened gifts. Thankfully everyone listened to me and loaded us u with gift cards or cash for the babies. Nick got a boat load of stuff and I think we all made out nice. Saturday afternoon my dad and his wife and my brother and his wife came over and once again we has a nice time, My dad and his wife gave the babies Clyde and I MasterCard gift cards:) And last but certainly not least my mom, aunt & grandma came over. More munchies some yummy cocktails and yet more gifts. Nicholas got a huge bean bag chair that he LOVES and Nick got this and the babies got this, way cool and Nick actually went to sleep in his own room last night thanks to it. My Mom and Aunt were VERY generous to Clyde and I. We got a gift card to Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort and have already made a reservation for 2 nights to get away, I can't wait!!!

So here we are on New Year's Eve. Clyde has to work but will hopefully be home at 10:30 so we can ring in the new year together and talk about what a year we had and hope that each year to come is filled with as much joy or more!!! This year my first baby will be 4!!! I can't even believe that and my precious babies will have a first birthday blowout!!! I can't believe they are almost 6 months old already. I hope everyone enjoys themselves tonight, but be safe.

Our Christmas was very low key, we stayed home and Clyde had to work. I was up at 7am to feed the babies and at 9am when Nick still was not up I decided I had better go wake them up so Nick had time to play with Dad before he had to go to work. When I went upstairs I said I think Santa was here and Nick flew out of bed, but instead of wanting to see if Santa left gifts, he had to go see if Santa ate the cookies and milk we left out for him. It was to cute. He then saw the presents and was so excited. We caved and got him the dog I said we were NOT getting him, but it was worth it, he LOVED it!!! We will be having two more day's of celebration so there will be lot's more pics to come. Today Clyde's family is coming over and Tomorrow my family will over. So Nick gets three day's of presents:)

Holiday Nights

Last night we went to our annual trip to Greenfield Village for the holiday nights and dinner at Eagle Tavern. If your not from the area Greenfield Village is part of the Henry Ford and a way cool place to visit in all the seasons. We went trick or treating there too. We have gone every year for several years with my mom, Aunt, brother and his wife. Clyde had to work this year and the babies were to little, so Clyde's mom and dad came over and watched them so Nick and I could go. It was freezing out but so much fun. We made a b line to the carousel first and Nick wanted to ride the rain deer, so I was glad it was free when we got to it. Then I gave him the choice of going to see Santa or going on a sleigh ride and he chose the sleigh ride. It was fun, we sang Christmas songs and enjoyed being together. We then went to dinner, it is a traditional 7 course meal by candlelight and the inn keeper has his speech he gives and there are singers performing throughout dinner. At the end they sing the 12 day's of Christmas and they give one day to a few tables and the entire place sings, it's fun. After dinner we waited around for a few for my favorite part of the night, fireworks in the snow. While we were waiting there were some funny looking characters walking by and I asked if I could take their picture with Nick. They were Mummers and we asked what they did and I guess they used to bother people in a good way to get food, drink or money. Thanks Mom, we had a great time.

Pajama Day

Thursday at school was pajama and pancake day. It was a lot of fun and the kids even got a special visitor. I was to cute, when Santa left all the kids ran to the window to see Santa walk by and when they didn't see him the teacher said she thought Santa parked his sleigh on the roof.

Very funny

Someone posted this on a message board I go on and I thought it was very cute. But then when I thought of this 4 times over I think it gave me a headache. LOL

This picture was taken on June 12, 2008 less than a month before the babies were born. Since we were not going on any grand vacations last summer we wanted Nicholas to have as much fun as possible before his world was turned upside down. We took him to the Turtle Cove Water Park for a day of fun in the sun. He had loved going to The Great Wolf Lodge, so we knew he would have a blast here. He was going down the slides all day having such a blast!!!
I tag Nichelle, Brenda, Ginny & Mary!!! And anyone else who wants to do it:)

5 Months

My precious miracles are 5 months old today. Sometimes it is so hard to believe that they have been here that long and other day's it seems much longer. They are each becoming such individuals and I love watching them develop into the little people they will become and to see them interact with each other brings a tear to my eye and melts my heart. I thank God for my all my kids every night but to know what other mom's have gone through with their higher order multiples I often find myself in tears holding on to one of the babies a little tighter. There is a mom who recently lost all three of her triplets and the straight he has is something I'm not sure I could find in her situation. I pray for her and her angels every night and kiss my angels here on earth an extra time for her. We have been blessed four times over and I can never say that enough.

New Traditions

Well this I saw on my friend Ginny's blog and I thought it was to cute. I made a comment to her about where to get it but couldn't wait for a response so I googled it, The Elf On The Shelf. I called the local Hallmark to see if they had it and ran out to get one. The story is so sweet and I just hope it does the trick on keeping a certain little boy in line until Christmas. The Elf sits in your house watching the kids and at night goes back to the north poll to report to Santa the day's happenings, good or bad. Every morning the elf is in a new spot and the kids have to find him. The elf itself is a little creepy looking to me, but the idea and the story are precious. We have yet to name him because Nicholas is not home, but when you do you go to their web site and get to register him. I will update when he has a name.

Slide show and updates

Let's see, Nick has been sick for over a week and to the Dr. twice. He has been officially diagnosed with asthma. Poor guy, he has such bad nights but with the medication he seems to be doing better. All of the babies have the sniffles, but Ella seems to have it the worst and Clyde and I both have whatever is going around. So all in all this is not a fun house to be in. For some better news Jack rolled over the other night!!! No one saw him do it, he was just on his belly when I went to get him in the morning.

We had some fun taking pictures tonight, here is our photo shoot.

An only child for the night

On Tuesday night we took Nick to the mall to see santa and the Polar Express thing they had too. It was Nice, but not what we expected. Santa was cool, Nick just sat on his lap and rattled off his list. Santa told him he would do his best, but he couldn't promiss everything. That is a good thing because he wants a $190.00 dog and I didn't pay that much for my real dog. Nick and dad played in the play area while I tried to get some shopping done. We had a good time as our old family of three.
