Children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. Psalm 127:3

I tried to get laundry done and the house cleaned all day today so we could enjoy it tommorow. Of course it didn't all get done (it never does), but I made some pretty good progress. Jessica came over during the day and gave Noah and the babies a present. Clothes for Micah and Levi, and a book and a toy ambulance for Noah. He loved it! We went to my Grandma Wanda's tonight. It didn't start till 6:30, which is pretty much the babies bedtime, so they were soooo tired while we were there. It was sad because they were really fussing, and Micah was rubbing his face and eyes, and you could tell they just wanted to be layed down for sleep. Anyway, the kids had fun opening presents. Noah was a pro at ripping the wrapping paper now, and needed very little help. He sometimes needed help if it was tapped a lot. The babies enjoyed the wrapping paper just about as much as what was inside....a typical first Christmas :) During the day Noah and I made the dough for sugar cookies, and we rolled it out and cut it into shapes , and baked it before we left for Grandma's. So, when we got home the cookies were cooled and we got to start decorating. Noah did 4 or 5 of his own cookies, and he was soooo excited to leave them for Santa. He kept saying, "Is Santa gonna love it?" We wrote Santa a note, and left it on the fireplace along with the cookies. Noah was so very cute and full of wonder and excitement, and I will always remember this Christmas Eve. Nick and I watched "It's a Wonderful Life" like we always do, and I put together Noah's train table while we watched it. I wrapped it once it was all put together, so it was a giant present!
The best husband and father a girl could ask for...He loves God, me, and our boys with all his heart.
Noah is our little blonde hair, blue-eyed wonder! He is a curious, talkative, and sensitive little boy. He loves ambulances and firetrucks, doing crafts, and he calls Minnie Mouse his wife. He loves helping me do things, like making cookies and scrubbing dishes. Noah is an awesome big brother, and brings me joy everyday as I watch him interact with his three little brothers.
Our firstborn twin, Micah can often be found with his thumb in his mouth, dragging around his blue silky blanket. He squints his eyes when I ask him to smile, and poses for the camera. He loves avocado, and he calls his baby brother "beebee". He melts my heart when he calls me "mummy"!
Levi was a feisty baby, and he is an even more feisty toddler! He loves to snatch toys from his brothers and run, just to hear them squeal! He learned how to climb out of his crib at 20 months. He brings shovels full of dirt into the house. He may make big messes, but the world stops when he tells me "hold you".
Our fourth son is such a blessing to us! He is a very smiley boy, who is getting more vocal with his cooing by the day! He has one dimple, and blue eyes just like his big brother Noah. We think they are clones! ;) We are so in love with our newest addition, and are enjoying every minute of watching him grow already!
