day 78: today while Ben and I got help preparing our taxes (so fun, right?) the babies got a special visit from grandma and grandpa to keep them entertained. Paul and grandpa invented a great new game – some sort of dangled by the armpits soccer which was apparently HILARIOUS and Paul’s new favorite thing ever.
day 77: whew!! All caught up. Let’s just hope I can stay that way 🙂 This morning the kids and I met up with my friend Christina and her girls at the beach. Such a GORGEOUS day out. I think this is my new favorite picture of Amelia. I love the expression on her face and I love all the pink – especially the rosy cast on her cheeks from the umbrella. It makes me smile
day 76: because I saw this in the craft store and took a picture of it. With my cell phone no less. Seriously. Who buys this stuff?!
day 75: on Wednesday I decided to be crafty, or home-makery, or something…. and so I baked some sugar cookies and brought them to work for Ben. He’s always asking for a visit from the peanuts so he can show them off and I thought it was a good day for stopping in. The cookies were delicious! I used this recipe
day 74: how ridiculously cute is this?! I promise I didn’t pose her 🙂
day 73: after a long weekend away there is absolutely NOTHING better than seeing your family again. I got to see Ben when I got home on Sunday night but I didn’t get to see the kids until Monday morning. They were cuter than ever and of course they had grown SO MUCH while I was gone. I can’t imagine being gone longer than four days, I already missed them like crazy!
day 72: on Sunday I got the chance to take some family portraits for a few of the local New Orleans moms. I had been dying to meet this adorable set of identical triplets – don’t you just want to give them a big squeeze?! They are so stinkin’ cute! I have to say though, after chasing them around the park and attempting (and failing for the most part) to get them to all sit or stand together long enough to get a decent shot of all three…. there is no way I would survive as a mom of triplets. Hats off to all you moms of higher order multiples. You must be superwomen 🙂
day 71: since the mom’s weekend away was all moms of twins or triplets and there were 30 some odd moms in attendance we had almost 70 kids among us. Luckily they were all home (most of them with their daddys) or else it would have been chaos. Everyone in their matching green shirts (and my sad homemade one)
day 70: our first stop on Friday morning? Beignets at Cafe du Monde of course! YUM!!
day 69: when I arrived at the house in New Orleans a lot of the moms had already made it into town and settled in. I was greeted at the door by a mob of screaming, squealing and hugging women, most of them wielding cameras to catch all the action. It was a bit overwhelming to say the least!
