Before and Baby

For family and friends far away. This is what I looked like the day before Jaxon was born.
The twins met Jaxon yesterday.
With Sami's runny nose and cough, and Weston's slight cough we didn't want to take the kids to the hospital until they were feeling better.
They are adjusting to new baby and doing better now that mommy is home. Mom, Dad and twins did not enjoy being separated the last few days.
Need to get a good picture of Jaxon and all his dark hair. He is dang cute but the pictures so far aren't doing him justice!

Happy shoppers

We were at Costco Thursday getting diapers. (Didn't want to run out while I was in the hospital.) The kids were being silly so I pulled out the camera and then they stopped. But they did let me get this cute picture.
If you notice the red mark above Sami's eye, that is from her falling down in a store last weekend.
The baby's room is ready. I have done the Thanksgiving and Christmas shopping. My hospital bag is packed. Seth has his schedule for next week hanging on the fridge. Now I just need my sicky Sami to get over her cold. I hate to leave her when she is sick.
Seth informed me that I can blog from my laptop in the hospital. So I will upload pictures as soon as I can on Monday!
I can't wait to meet this little boy!

Lunch time

I gave the kids cottage cheese with lunch today. This is what happens if I leave the room and let them feed themselves...
Such a messy little girl.
Not as messy, but he was smiling for the camera.

2 weeks left

Just an update on us.
We have two weeks left until the twins have a new little brother. Really don't think they have a clue on what's going on. Toys moved out of their room, that I know they see in the baby's room. A crib. Car seats moved to the back seat in the minivan. Really can you ignore moms big belly?
Will keep you updated on how they deal with the new addition to our family.

Thanksgiving banner

I think I'm addicted to banners. Don't be surprised if I come up with something to hang from my mantle every holiday.
This one I did mostly myself (well Seth had to help with some Photoshop questions). I really need to learn Photoshop one of these days.
There are 25 leaves, we are going to write something we are thankful for each day until Thanksgiving. Then for Thanksgiving dinner we will read them all. Did you notice I didn't say Thanksgiving day? Our dinner will be Friday or Saturday, as Mom gets here Thursday and hopefully I'll be home from the hospital that day too.


I hope the kids enjoy Halloween next year because this year was a fight. I felt like such a mean mommy dressing up my kids and both of them crying as I'm dressing them and after until the costumes were off again.
Weston was a dinosaur.
Here daddy is comforting him the first time I put the costumes on them (a week before).
Sami was a fairy (upset also).
I never got a picture with her wearing the hat.
We pretended to trick or treat at our back door. They stopped crying only when they had candy in their mouths.
Sami and Wes at the church trunk or treat Saturday night. Sami was not shy about going around with daddy to all the cars. Wes stayed behind with me at first and helped me hand out candy.
He was very helpful and CUTE!
After all the candy is gone.
Sami loved that sugar stick, Wes is holding on tight to the bag of candy.
Back in the car, candy in hand ready to go home.
Don't they look like they enjoyed themselves?
