Merry Christmas

I have a few minutes to wish you all a Merry Christmas. I know I owe you all more pics on the Picasa account (linked from this site). I promise to upload some more pictures next week.
The boys are celebrating their very first Christmas and they are going to be 6 months old on Friday! Aunt Brenda sent a very large gift, so large that Amazon didn't even put it in a separate mailing box. Thanks Aunt Brenda.

I'm trying to do 15 things at once today (not sure if it's any different than any other day) to get ready for Christmas Eve at Tiffany and Justin's house. I had to finish Mike's Mom's gift. The cake balls are in the freezer waiting for me to dip them in chocolate and the caprese salad will hopefully be done before we leave for dinner tonight.

I hope you all have a great Christmas!!

Where to begin....

It's been four weeks since my last post. Where has the time gone?? I can tell you exactly where it's gone. Try getting up at 5:30 feed the shorties and then get the big shortie up at 7:00 a.m. to get ready for school. Entertain and make breakfast, get the boys down for a nap and take Lauren to school. I either groom myself or get busy with the chores of the morning (yes, it's a choice that I have to make) and then after the boys get up from their morning nap the chaos begins. We really don't have a set schedule, they are not napping all at the same time, but they all eat at the same time. I'm really working on a eating, playing, napping schedule but it's S L O W. Than after getting Lauren from school, the fun really starts - everyone wants to be held and entertained individually and shall I remind you that it's just me taking care of them at that time. I've gotten Lauren to help as well and sometimes when Mike hears me losing my mind, he will come down and rescue me for a minute. If they are not entertained 100% then they cry and there is sympathy crying at this time too. It's getting a bit much for me to handle myself. We are seriously talking about hiring a nanny for the afternoon to help me keep my sanity.

Thanksgiving has come and went. Brenda and Drew showed up for a visit as well as Mike's aunt and uncle and cousins. It was a pleasant visit and lot of beverages and conversation was had by all.

**I'll update with names and activities soon - I'm tired and going to bed before it's binky patrol around 1 a.m.
