Brian won this battle!

Never in my life has our Christmas tree been up before Thanksgiving. This year we put it up the week before. With Brian and I working crazy hours to get around paying for daycare our time was limited. He will be working holiday hours and with family coming and holiday events this was about the only time we had to get our stuff out.

I did manage to muster up the energy to take a few pictures of the kids with the tree yesterday. They didn't do too bad. I would still like to play with the pictures a little before making Christmas cards. Maybe that will be my late night project tonight. Drew is going to spend the night at Aunt Stacy's house. I think they are going to camp out in the living room. You know, when you put sheets or blankets up across the counch and the tables or between the chairs and get inside! Brings back lots of fun childhood memories!!

My other late night project is to wrap presents. Boy has my wrapping workload quadrupled!! hehehe. I just hope it goes smoothly and then I'll just need to find a good hiding spot.

I'm gearing up for the babies 1st birthday this week. I'm slowly coming to terms that they will be a year old. I don't feel like they are that old. Either way, I still think they are the cutest and sweetest babies ever. I am one lucky mommy.
Birthday pictures will post soon!

Hugs to all, and have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

Time to catch up.

Woopsies! I didn't realize it had been almost a month since I've posted. I guess I've been too busy. :(

Well, we had a fabulous Halloween. We participated in our neighborhood's Halloween parade with the fire dept. located just up the street. I took them to their first Halloween party at one of my friends house and then we Trick-or-Treated! They loved it.

We've been getting ready for birthday's and the upcoming holidays already. Can you believe the quads will be one in less than two weeks?? YIKES! They are learning so much, so fast. Jack and Emma are crawling, Maddox and Parker are starting to figure it out. The try to scoot forward, so that's progres! They love pancakes. The weather has been so nice out lately. Yesterday was 74 degrees, so we went to the zoo. Yes, I took all 5 kids to the zoo by myself. They are so well behaved that it really isn't hard. We had a blast. Drew loved the cheetahs. We didn't get to see them last time we were there because they were hiding. Yesterday there were three laying about 50 feet from us. I was surprised at how small they really are. I was thinking they were as big as the tigers.

I'm really excited for Christmas. Not so much about the presents and the shopping but about getting really cute pictures. I know, such a MOM THING TO SAY! Hahahaha. I know the babies will be into the tree like crazy, but it's going to be fun. They were all still in the NICU last year. It will be nice to spend our holidays here at home (our new home) as a family. :)

Hugs to all!
