52 months...

They are growing into amazing big kids.  It is unbelievable that they went from preemies to preschoolers in just a blink of the eye.

It's a sad day...

when you realize your 4 year olds are more technologically savvy than you are.  All four of them have taught me how to play some of their leap pad and kindle games that they have taught themselves how to play.  Cameron asked me to win his level in Angry Birds and I attempted 11 times before Brady sighed "Let me show you Mom!" and proceeded to win on his very first attempt.  I guess I better step up my game before they head to school this fall!

Weekend in Connecticut

The quads, Grammie and I set out for a weekend in Connecticut.  Grammie had some friends to visit and we had a very important first birthday party to attend for our twin cousins, Addison and Ashton.  We got to have dinner dates with family and even a trip to Chuck E Cheese with some new friends.  Nicole and I "met" online when my quads and her triplets were just little and now they are all big kids!  It was great to have a playdate and some crazy fun.  Aubrey decided she was part of a birthday party and joined the birthday kids and Chuck E at one point.  Crazy girl!  Fun was had by all and the 5+ hrs each way was even pretty good...I was worried after Matthew asked 6 miles into the trip if we were there yet!

8 kids...all under picture we could get!  LOL!

So happy to finally meet Nicole!

What vacation would be complete without a ride on the luggage cart!

This was our last trip to CT.  My how they have grown!

I can't believe it took this long...

We have had Callie for 5 months now and the fab four JUST discovered sneaking their food to her.  It all started with Cameron "dropping" a bite of his food on the floor and Callie coming to clean up then it became a game to see who could sneak her a bite.  Poor Callie gets punished because she isn't allowed near the table at meal time anymore.  I am amazed it took this long though!

Sleep Stories

For weeks now Cameron has been telling me about his "sleep stories" and how there are animals in them and sometimes I am in them.  I finally figured out that they were talking about dreams and wondered how he came up with that name then today while we were watching the Land Before Time...their favorite movies right now...there was one that was on sleep stories.  Lately the four of them have been sharing their sleep stories first thing in the morning with each other and it is so funny how they have similar ones some nights.
I love how "Sleep stories" just sounds more magical than "dreams".

We've been FLOCKED!

Nine years ago this summer there was so much uncertainty, would Ben make it through his treatments?  Would I be able to carry all four babi...
