Special Quilts

These quilts are very special. They were lovingly made by Tess and Tripp's Paternal Grandmother to custom match their (unisex) nursery. They are positively adorable and are stiched together not with thread, but with love. Thank you Grandma!

Great Great Mary

This is my very special Great Aunt Mary. I have been trying to coordinate a visit with her since the babies were born....I do not get to see her enough. Anyway, we finally did it today and it was wonderful! The babies took to her immediately, even Tess who normally is not a fan of new people, and of course, Tripp didn't stop smiling all afternoon. I told Elsie that she was going to have lunch with her Great Great Aunt Mary today, but I guess that was too many words for her to remember, so she kept calling her Great Great Mary! She may be on to something, cause she sure is GREAT!

The Set up!

This is the "before" picture for our new Blog headder. Elsie helped me set up the shoot and had to try out ALL the boxes..."like boats, Mummy!" We sang Row Row Row your boat throughout the whole shoot and had a great time! For the rest of the photo shoot, check out the opening slide show on our family web page:

A Week in Review

You may have noticed, my postings have been a little sparse in the last week. I have had 3 sick babies and it has been a doooosie of a week! All are on the mend now, so here is my week in review:

Saturday, we went downtown to the Green Farmers' Market. It was a glorious, all-be-it slightly chilly morning and we had a great time.

Sunday, Elsie went to a Super Bowl Party....yes just Elsie, not me! I know the jersey is for the wrong team, but he did not care! She has been wearing this Dolphins jersey since she was 18months old and she loves it!

Monday after school, we made "cakes" in the yard. What that really means is that we emptied out each and every rock from the landscaping and piled them into all kinds of different toys! Great fun!

Wednesday, Anna was here with us.....EVERYONE loves our Anna, even Tess who is going through that phase where anyone except Mummy is unacceptable! We are blessed to have her as part of our family.
Sooooo, now that I am caught up (kinda) I am going to keep up this week again,...promise!

Budding Photographer

These pictures were taken by.........Elsie! She is my little budding photographer! Don't be too impressed.....these were two of about 75 frames, most of which were absolutely and completely unrecognizable, but these 2 are terrific! She got a camera from Santa for Christmas cause she wanted to be like Mummy, but she still wants MY camera...go figure!
