Dedication, lights, Christmas

Yesterday we had Spencer's dedication. Everything went well and it was nice that my bro's and sis in law could be there. Although I did get some flack for having yesterday. We thought it would be a perfect day to have it. and so we did. After spending some time at my parents we took the kids around our neighbourhood to see all the Christmas lights. I'm always amazed at the little things kids love. It didn't matter how lit up the house was the kids thought it was awesome. We heard a lot of wows coming from the backseat. It brought tears to my eyes to see them so happy and excited.
I'm looking forward to spending lots of time with family over the next week or so. So much so that I think they might be sick of us.
Merry Christmas to everybody!

I was tagged

Kristen tagged me in her last post, to tell 7 things some people might not know about me.
So here goes.
1. I'm thinking about getting a purse. I know what most of you are thinking. Wha? Just remember I didn't say I was getting one, only thinking about it.

2. I secretly like the color pink. I even have a few pink shirts.

3. I would like to go back to school someday. Maybe become a paramedic like I've always wanted.

4. I would love to have a red haired kid. Spencer could be it. His hair is reddish already but it can change.

5. I'm terrified of spiders.

6. I like breakfast type foods. Especially a brunch buffet. So yummy. I'm hungry just thinking about it.

7. Chris thinks I'm nuts but I want to learn how to play the violin. I keep asking for one but Santa hasn't brought me one yet. Maybe he knows how scratchy it will sound.

I now have to tag 3 people. I'll understand if you don't want to do this.
Chrissy, Beth and Miranda

Tonight we had a big group for Tuesday night dinner. Got lots of pictures of the babies and the kids doing gingerberad houses with Unkie. Hopefully I will have a chance tomorrow to post them.

More poop

I know in my last post I talked about Quinks pooping on the toilet and it wasn't a bad poop post. Well today is different. He is still trying to go on the potty but he also goes in his room, because he can't open the door to go to the bathroom. He then proceeds to play with it. I think Prosolve and I are developing a close relationship. Watch out Chris. So back we went to using duct tape. Quinten goes and gets it for us now. At least he is a fast learner with some things. Hopefully tomorrow will be a poop free day. I'm getting sick of the extra laundry.

Normally when I title a post poop it's a bad thing. Not today. Quinten has been using the potty quite a bit lately and even last week started using it without telling us. Would put the cushiony seat on the toilet and use the tub to climb on. Yesterday he hoped himself up there and pooped. Yeah! Hopefully it continues so I only have to change one set of diapers.
We finally got our Christmas card photo done. What a gong show. Don't 2 year olds know how important these photos are to mommies?:) We're not professionals but we had fun.
We had a great but busy weekend. Hope it was great for everyone too. Now to next week when the fam starts to roll in. Can't wait.

shots x4

Today we had Spencers 2 month shots. Taylor, Quinten and I got our flu vaccines at the same time. The little man weighs 11 pounds 6 ounces and is 22 5/8 inches. 45 percentile. That has never happened with our kids. Well actually Quinten was 12 lbs 2 ounces at 2 months but then I don't know what happened. Taylor wanted to weigh herself so i did both the other 2. Taylor is 35 lbs and 39" and Quinks is 24 lbs and 31". They all did really well with their needles.
The last 2 nights Spencer has let me sleep for 8 hours. i'm not sure tonight I will be so lucky. He has been sleeping a lot today. It could be a long night ahead. Which will prove to be interesting going shopping. Hopefully I don't get too frustrated with kids. Somebody always ends up crying hopefully it won't be me. Not much has happened since i last posted. hope all is well with everyone.

Yeah for Sleep!

Last night Spencer went for 8 1/2 hours. And at the right time too. Hopefully tonight is the same way. Khrista and her kids came over today. Her and I were upstairs with the babies while Quinten napped and Maguire and Taylor were in the basement playing. They were playing really well together. We could there laughter and then it got silent. That is till Taylor came up crying because she had slipped. Well they got into the paint and there was paint all over them and the floor. What a mess. It was pretty funny and both of us couldn't stop laughing. What else do you do in a situation like that? Pictures to follow.

We also got the pleasure of meeting Steve and Jenn's new baby Jaia. What a beautiful baby. It was so great to hang out with them for the evening. i'm sure we will be seeing them lots over the next few weeks.

Tree is up

We got our tree last night and decorated it today. I love the smell of a real Christmas tree. So good. Now I'm in the mood to start baking. The usuals are rum balls, gingersnaps, almond roca. just to name a few. I love this time of year. And as an added bonus I'm almost done my shopping. Stocking stuffers are the only thing left.
Saw Movin out on Friday. Not what I expected. Normally in a musical you expect the actors to be singing. THis was a band up top with the piano man singing and the actors just dancing. Almost like a rock ballet type of thing. It was good but not what we normally are into.
Hope you all had a great weekend.
