I'm dreaming of a White Christmas!

Wait I'm not dreaming!!! It is snowing!!!! It has been snowing for about 4 hours. The wind is blowing something fierce!! For a while we could not see the houses across the street is was snowing so hard!
Rylie not happy! Fell down in the snow & did not like it one bit!
Reese also fell down & also did not like it. She is so short the snow was up to her knees!

Merry Christmas!!

This is the picture on our christmas cards. I ordered them from She did a great job photoshoping several pictures together to get 1 good picture which if you haven't figured out by now is impossible!!!!
Here is the kids with santa at Old Cora this past Saturday! The little kids were all saying "Ho Ho!" Then when we got them up to him, their mouths were wide open & their eyes were as big as saucers! I am pretty sure if they had actually been in his lap there would have been some screaming going on! Maybe we will try that next year!

We will be home Christmas so if you are in the area come by to see us! Randall has to work Christmas Eve night! We wish everyone a Merry Christmas!!!

Ho Ho Ho!

Racheal had choir practice for 2 hours this morning. The musical tomorrow is going to be so cute!! If you are in the area come to Eastside at 6:00. Then we came home ate lunch, put the little kids to bed & made cookies! Then Racheal & I headed to the funeral home. My great Uncle Gaylon passed away Thursday night. Then we went home to get the rest of the family & head to the parade. The kids all loved it. Then went to see HO HO! Ryan's eyes were big as saucers. I think if he had actually been put in his lap he would have cried. I just put the triplets in the wagon & rolled it in front of santa & Racheal sat in his lap. The were all looking so that is a plus!!! The all got candy canes from Santa & when we got home Ryan got into his. He thought is was pretty good!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

The day before thanksgiving we attempted to do pictures for Christmas cards! Now I know why I usually pay someone to do this! I bought them big lollipops with the hopes they would keep their interest long enough for me to get a picture! Wrong!!! I took about 80 pictures & did not get 1 picture. Luckily the girl that is doing our cards, used photo editing & put together several pictures & we got a decent christmas card! This Friday Racheal has pajama day at school. She is really excited. Saturday she has choir rehearsal. That night we are going to see the parade & hopefully get a decent picture with Santa. Momma has a plan!! Sunday night is the Christmas musical at church. It should be really cute. Racheal & mommy are ready for Christmas break! She is getting so hard to get up in the mornings & she cries about everything!

Now to the triplets!! Ryan has started giving really great hugs and he gives them a lot!! He is also talking more. He now says excuse me, choo-choo, thank you, please. They are growing so fast in just a few short months they will be 2!!!! I still can't believe it!

Randall was suppose to start working in Big Spring this month, but there has been a glitch in that process thanks to the VA. Hopefully he can get enough shifts in Abilene that we will be ok.

Here are some of our attempts at Christmas card pictures!

Happy Turkey Day!

We had a great Thanksgiving. We left Thursday morning & went to Jonesboro to have lunch with Randall's family. Then after lunch we loaded up and headed to Crockett. Then on Friday we had Christmas. The triplets got into it a little more than last year. They all got a ton of clothes & pj's. We are now set until spring! The triplets did great there. They did not even bother my aunt's tree or the presents.

Happy Birthday Daddy!

Yesterday was Randall's birthday. Racheal & I made cupcakes for him. I went to MOPS yesterday morning & brought Underwood's back for him. His parents came over for a short visit also.

had her feast at school this week. She is super excited about only having 2 more days of school. We are all finally feeling better. The babies all had strep so Randall put us all on antibiotics so we could all get well. The little kids are get so big! They are all saying sissy now, especially Ryan! He loves them so much. He stands in front of the computer & watches for his sissy's picture. Another favorite word these days is quack quack! They all say it also, but Ryan says it hundreds of times a day!

Another visit from the tooth fairy!

Racheal, Rylie, Ryan & Reese watching tv.

Racheal lost tooth number 2 Friday morning. She woke me up a little after 6 & said she lost her tooth. What possessed her to pull it out at 6 in the morning I don't know!!! She put it in her pillow & got $2 from the tooth fairy.

We have had all kinds of sickness going around here. Racheal had croup, Randall has a mild case of the flu, I had strep & now have horrible allergies. Ryan has something! He has had a runny nose, cough & occasional fever. I am so ready for everyone to be well again!

I did manage to get the Christmas tree up & all the decorations up inside. I have started on the outside. Hopefully I can get it all done by Thanksgiving.

Reese dancing!

The kids had a great time trick or treating. They were Comanche Indian cheerleaders & football players. I took Racheal to the carnival at the fire station while the other kids took a nap. We made the trip around the square, then made it to 3 houses & back home. This time change has not been good. I have had problems going to sleep. The babies were really grouchy the first day, but are getting better. Can you believe they are 20 months old now?!?!?!

Racheal & everyone loot!!

Racheal gave them a sucker. They took turns getting a lick. Rylie wasn't to sure about it at first, but then he decided it was good. Reese LOVED it. She would squeal at Racheal if she didn't get back to her fast enough!

Busy, Busy!!

Racheal, Rylie, Reese & Ryan
Racheal with the first pumpkin we have ever carved!

I know I have not been a very good blogger here lately. We have been super busy! Racheal went on her first field trip last week. They went to Tarleton to a play & then to the park for a picnic. They also had their fun run last week at school. She came in 3 rd to last! Bless her heart she runs like her mom!! But she got a ribbon so she was ok with that! Friday all the kids got to go to the pep rally at the football field. My aunt Barb, Jana & Natalie came & we all went. Saturday we did pictures with the pumpkins after lunch, then that afternoon did pictures in their halloween costumes at the football field. The trips had a blast! Wide open field & they ran until they could not run anymore!!! Thank goodness Kim came & helped me! We were both exhausted!!

The trips love going outside! They go to the door & say side. The boys are talking more & more! Rylie says ok, cookie, uh oh, bye bye, dadda, momma. Rylie has also decided he is the boss & tells his siblings no & shakes his finger at them. It is pretty fun. Ryan says bubba, sissy, coocoo (cookie), uh oh, scoose me (excuse me), nite nite, momma no. Reese talks some but most of hers is in Japanese!! When I come home from taking or getting Racheal to school, they all say hi!!! It is too cute! Ryan is still the most loving & caring. When he sees someones cup on the floor he takes it to them. He kisses, his siblings all the time. If you tell Rylie I love you then he will usually give you kisses. They love to chase each other around the couch.

Racheal, Rylie & Ryan playing in the garage! Rylie loves the slide! He usually slides & then claps for himself!
Rylie after we gave him a haircut! We cut off all his curls! That boy has a ton of hair!!

Finally an update!!

I know I am behind on posting! It has been really busy around here. Last weekend was the Comanche Pow-Wow. I entered 2 of Racheal's paintings in the art show & her giraffe painting won 1st place for her age group & her shaggy dog painting won honorable mention. She was so excited. I even took all the kids that morning to the Pow-wow. Man was it hot & this momma was very tired. We came home put the trips to bed & headed back so Racheal could do some of the things she wanted to do. This week I have been working on our garage sale. I have been cleaning out & getting rid of stuff. Plus we have tons of baby clothes to get rid of. Well the garage sale was a big success! We made a good amount of money and got rid of a lot of stuff. We are now down to 1 tub of baby clothes!!! Now the carport is fixed up so we can take the trips outside & play & they can't run off!! At least not until they figure out they can push on the barrier or crawl under it. They loved it yesterday! They were so excited to be out there!
