The boys are doing great! After all three had their tonsils and adenoids removed on the same day last week, the first night was dicey, but after that it was a piece of cake.
We had two rooms with "name alert" stickers on the sign. Don't want to mix those boys up!
Thank goodness Chip came to help me! He took care of Theo the entire time since I was busy next door with Ralph and Zhen. Theo would NOT keep his gown on. We switched to jammies after this because you know the place was chilly! Doesn't Theo look big?
Ralph was ready to play after sleeping for a few hours. He charmed all the nurses.
Zhen was the BIGGEST whiner after the surgery. He just whined with every breath for the entire first night. He may have been hurting a bit more than the other two...tell you why tomorrow.

What a week we had last week! Phew!
Between the orthotics fittings, eye doc, family doc, birthday, therapies, event planning, and 2 IEP meetings, I was totally exhausted.
Tuesday was Zhen's birthday. He's five years old now! Wow! He gets to eat his cereal in this red bowl every morning. Dad was out of town, so we baked a cake and had it without frosting for a little party after dinner. The kids were so surprised that cake tasted good without frosting! Ha!
Wednesday had to be the highlight of my week...Theo's IEP meeting. If you have never had the pleasure of looking forward to an IEP meeting I'm sorry. This is just one of the ways I am blessed by Theo. Watching him blow expectations and goals out of the water is so exciting! Working with a team of professionals that have fallen in love with him is rewarding. This deserves a whole blog post of it's own.

Oops! Happy New Year!!!
I just realized that I totally missed Christmas! haha!
Let's just say that blogging is taking a back seat around here lately. I have lots to share...funny stories, kid craziness, my off-the-wall plans and schemes. I've just been trying to BE with my family as much as a write about them. I was a mom long before I ever owned a computer.
With that said, here are some photos from our Christmas. Hope you enjoy!
I was dreaming of a muddy Christmas. How do you like this Christmas scene?
Richy was home, so plenty of Guitar Hero battles took place.
The girls dressed up for Christmas Eve but I couldn't get a nice smile out of Rose, until...
...she covered up Ruby's face.
These boys provided quality control for Santa cookies. The cookies were approved, I'm happy to say.
Some sort of record was set as mom and dad were in bed before 1am. Even after a battery run. I guess we will never learn.
Here is the whole crew, minus Wesley who came for New Year's. They are all waiting for the action to start after we got all the little ones to the potty.
No trouble getting smiles on Christmas morning!
The BEST gift, hands down, that was received this year. Zhen has an obsession with vacuum cleaners and this little beauty was just the ticket for him.
Theo enjoying the good vibrations.
Ralph liked it too!
My little drummer boy! This conga drum sounded awesome.
Jordan and his new puppy, Rufus.
Thomas never disappoints with his duct tape creations. He made Chipper his first Superbowl trophy. Oh man did we laugh!!
Leroy got a duct tape sword that say "I AM THAT IS." He loved it! Brownie points if you can guess where this saying comes from!
My little dolly with her new cabbage patch dolly.
Theo working hard on unwrapping.
I think it's love.
Rose and her unicorn, Cornelia.
I got a nifty new, heavy duty colander. You know what those are good for, right?
What do you think of this ribeye? A great friend gave us this tasty hunk of meat. We cut it up and put it on the grill. Mmmmmm.

I'm working on a blog post from Christmas. haha! But I've resolved to take better care of myself and family this year. So instead of working late into the night, I'm headed to bed.
