Well, now that the kiddos are feeling a little bit better, I have more time to blog. This week has been crazy. We have been rocking sick babies, washing bedding, giving tylenol, and running humidifiers among other things. My mom left today and unfortunetly ended up with the flu. Sorry Mom! I am so glad you came to help this week. I hope you feel better soon.
Easter was a lot of fun. We went to Matt's parents house and had a great time. The girls colored Easter Eggs, had a Easter Egg hunt, and played with their aunts and cousins all weekend. Here are some fun pictures from our weekend
Uncle Cody is sneaking Maddox some Peeps!
Alyssa found her basket that the Easter Bunny hid. It didn't take her too long. She was pretty sharp sunday morning!
Brooklynn got pretty comfy on the couch with her Easter Bucket.
Shilah went for the bottle liners. We have trained her well!
The kids dyed all the eggs and then uncle Jade hid them for their Easter Hunt! What a good Uncle! We love you Jade.
Here is a cute video we took Easter morning! I love my babies!!!!

I haven't posted anything lately because all the kiddos are sick. It started with Lexie Sunday night driving home from Matt's parents from Easter. She decided to bring up dinner as we were driving into town. Thank goodness she didn't get sick any earlier. The next day Shilah and Rylee decided to join her. And now little Maddox is joining the gang (he already had the croup). The older girls seem to have been skipped... Hopefully! So, we have been out of commission and hope we can get back on our feet soon.
I do have to tell you, today I was moving Maddox and Lexie's cribs in the other nursery with the other 2 (I have 2 nurseries). While babies were screaming and I was was taking down cribs as fast as I could, the doorbell rang. Alyssa ran to get it and I kept thinking please let it be Heather (a good friend) or someone that I knew that could come in and help for a minute. I turned the corner and my MOM was standing in the door. She drove 4 hours to come and surprise me. She had a feeling I needed help and drove up this morning. I fell in her arms and broke out into the ugly cry! Needless to say, I am so grateful she is here. Hopefully I will regain some sanity and be able to get through this rough week. Thank goodness for Mothers!

We just wanted to share a few pictures of our family over the last year. The babies are almost a year old and Brooklynn and Alyssa are growing up so fast. We feel very blessed to have such beautiful & healthy children. We couldn't ask for more and are looking toward the future and are excited about what is in store for us!
Maddox is such a cute guy!
The babies looked so beautiful (and handsome) in their blessing outfits!
The kids love standing at the gate and watching their older sisters entertain them.
The babies cousin Adam made these hats for the babies. He was so excited and did a wonderful job. Aren't they adorable
Shilah, Lexie, Maddox, and Rylee
The girls love putting the babies in silly positions! They are lucky to have such wonderful big sisters!
Bath time is always fun!
4 peas in a pod!
