The Quads just turned Quad!

Four years ago my sister Pam gave birth to 4 tiny little babies that were all under 2 lbs.  It was an exciting buy very stressful time.  They are all doing great (except for Stephens accident) and they just celebrated their big number 4 with a big Cowboy Celebration that only their mother could put together.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY Abby, Dillon, Carter and Stephen!  We love you!

Baby Stephen goes home

My sister Pam as most of you know has quadruplets.  Unfortunately they were in a horrible accident earlier this month and Stephen broke his femur.  He was flown to Primary Children's Hospital and he was put in a spika cast like the one Micah had after his accident.  Due to the problems that Stephen has had since birth he is so fragile, so whenever he has a problem there are usually many more to come.  Long story short, my poor sister ended up back at PCMC for another 3 weeks after several complications.  After much stress and many sleepless nights, Stephen finally was released to go back home on Friday.  As you can see, even when times are rough rest assured baby Stephen will always have a smile on his face.  We are so happy that he is feeling better and that Pam and Stephen were finally able to go home and have Thanksgiving dinner with their family 3 weeks late.  We love you Stephen!  

Sophia is 3 months old

Sophia is always smiling when she's sleeping.  Sweet Dreams.

I can't believe how slow the time creeps by when their in your belly and how fast time fly's as soon as they come out.  I can't believe my sweet little girl is already 3 months old.  It seems like yesterday that I was running the stairs trying to get her to come.  She is such a good girl, she always has a smile on her face.   I always have a camera on hand so I don't miss one second of her growing up.  I feel like every time I blink she grows another inch.  Happy 3 months my sweet girl.

My Sweet Sophia

 I am so fortunate that Heavenly Father has chosen me to care for this sweet little spirit.  Sophie is now 10 weeks old.  She is such a happy baby.  Her sweet smile melts my heart.  She has recently found her voice and I hang on every little sound she makes.   This past Sunday my dad blessed my Sweet Sophia.  She wore the most beautiful tulle dress that my sister Pam bought me when we found out we were having a girl.  She looked like a little princess.  My family was in town for a post Thanksgiving celebration so it made it extra special.  After the blessing we headed back to our house for a panini party.   Thanks to all my friends and family that helped make Sophia's day special.

Ladies and Gentlemen - The Perfect Turkey!

This year Thanksgiving was a little bit more of a intimate affair.  My family when down to the resort to be with my sisters Pam and Julie and their families.  We unfortunately weren't able to make the trip because Zach was in a basketball tournament.   Although the guest list was short, we had a great time.  For our Thanksgiving dinner there was my little family, my brother Mark who was home from Brazil where he is currently working for Azul my brother David's new Airline and my sister Pam joined us up from Southern Utah.  My sister has been at Primary Children's Hospital for over a week with her little boy Stephen.  Although I'm sad that Stephen isn't feeling well, I'm glad that I was able to spend the holiday with my sister.  
I was so proud of my self.  I pulled off the perfect turkey!  It was moist and it looked like it was out of a magazine.  I love entertaining.  I have so many fun glasses, punch bowls and serving platters and decorations thanks to my cute husband.  Every Christmas he gives me some amazing piece that puts me in the mood for a party.  
After dinner we put on some Christmas music and we decked the halls.  I was so excited to get all of the Christmas decorations up so early.  It just makes it worth the effort when you have more time to enjoy them.  So here's to spending way too much money and eating more than we should.  Who doesn't love the holidays?
