I had the privilege of delivering this precious bundle.  Joy did great…as usual!  IslaMae is beautiful!  We couldn’t be any happier!

My crew has been having a blast lately!  We went to the library the other day for a puppet show.  The puppet show was fun, but I think they loved looking through the books even more.  Lydia and Julia came with us, and they made it so much fun!  It honestly relieved a ton of my stress.  I do plan on making the library a regular trip for us now.  We’ll see how that goes!!

Can you see the look of joy on Evie’s face?

Collages

The kids and I have had a busy day.  We went to gymnastics, we went to the park, and then we collects leaves, twigs, and grass.  When we got home from our excursions, we went to work.

First, we colored.  Honestly, I was trying to get the to do the collages, but they saw crayons and wanted to color.  I figured it was easier to join them than fight them!

They colored wonderfully. 

Then, I showed them what I wanted to do with our treasures.  They loved the glue!  The glue was better than anything else to them!  They each worked on their individual collages.  Then, they started sharing their leaves and twigs!  I was adorable!

Making Pizza

Today the kids and I had a fun outing.  A couple of moms in the North Fulton Mothers of Multiples Club have started a business planning activities for kids in the area.  We had so much fun!  We went to Z’s Pizza in Johns Creek. 

The kids got to touch the dough and play with with it.

Then they got to talk about all of the ingredients on a pizza and look at them.

IMG_6401

Here comes the fun part!  Each child got their own personal pizza to make however they wanted!

IMG_6403

It was great teaching the kids the “process” of making a pizza and helping them to follow the directions.

IMG_6404

They all wanted to taste the ingredients, and that was fine.  Evie did a great job of making her pizza as did Maggie.  Josh wasn’t quite as sure about the sauce and the cheese.  I had a great time helping each of them.

After we made our pizzas, we sent them to be baked.  They were then brought back out for us to eat!!

Z’s Pizza is all organic.  The difference was obvious to me!  The kids had made three great pizzas, and we ALL enjoyed them!

We have another outing with KidVentures to the Duluth Train Museum in a few weeks.  We even get to go on a train ride that day too!  Josh is going to go nuts!!!

I love you all.

Good Morning Mama!

Every single morning when the kids wake up, they all want to be held.  It exhausts me.  It’s tough to be one person trying to give three two year olds all of the love they need and deserve.  The other morning they all sat in my lap as we watched Handy Manny and Daddy cooked breakfast.  I think they thought they were in heaven.  That morning was priceless.  I got to love on all three of my babies at one time…..without wailing, hitting, or fighting!!

I love you all.

Hangin’ With Friends

Today, we celebrated the fourth early with Jim, Sam, Ben, and Logan!  We had a blast!.  Last year we got together for the fourth too!  It is so fun to have such awesome friends to spend time with and who understand life with multiples!  Now that the kids are getting older, it’s even more fun to watch them play!  They all love hats, stuffed animals, bouncy toys, and cars.  It was such a fun, relaxing afternoon.  I can’t wait until we do it again!
