Our new family picture

We just had a new family picture taken by
our sweet friend Megan.

When we look at it, we can't believe we have
been blessed with three such wonderful sons!
Next family picture will have Sophia in it!

Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for these two precious little boys
who will always be our sons (and brothers)
Two cute for words . . .

Often very goofy . . . nothing boring about our days.

Philip and Elijah, your family loves you so!

Moe, Curly, or Larry??

All right, all you 3 Stooges fans . . .
I think we have Curly living right here with us!

The resemblence is uncanny!! LOL!


(Our nephew took a picture of Eli off of our blog and spliced it with Curly's. It took him forever to do this because he was laughing so hard that his hands were shaking. We have been giggling ever since we saw it. What a keepsake!)

Happy Birthday Ted!

Today is Valentine's Day.
Not only do we adore this holiday to tell the special people in our
life how much we love them,
but it's also Ted's birthday!

Not just any birthday this year though.

Ted turned 25 today.
That's a quarter of a century! Yikes! That must mean
he has really old parents! LOL!!

We all love and adore you Ted. You have such a sweet spirit and
such a wonderful way about you.

You are the best Valentine's present we ever received!

Happy Birthday Teddy Bear.
Sweet bloggy friends . . .
Won't you leave a happy birthday message for him?

He thinks our little boys are the only ones who ever get comments on their posts.
Won't you surprise him today??

New toy room

This is our silly little boy posing for the camera in our toy room, I mean dining room. Yep, that is a bib over Eli's head. Yep, he still needs one since he is an incredibly messy eater! (Hence the reason he is still in a high chair! :)

After celebrataing Christmas at our home and with exteneded family, we couldn't even walk around in our family room because of all of the toys Philip and Elijah had just been given! Good problem to have though! So Ted and I worked hard to move all of our little guys' toys and such out into our dining room at one end. That end wasn't really being used anyway. Now it is! Big time!! It just took some new cabinets (you can see them off to the right) and a whole lot of organizing!

We have our family room back, for the most part - that is if you don't count the train table, mountains of blocks, and various other little toys here and there that still reside in the family room! LOL!!

Do you know what one of the really terrific benefits of this organizational project is? Philip and Elijah keep their toys straightened up so much better, and they have found toys they didn't even remember having! How cool is that??

Thanks Ted for helping your dear old mom get organized! Now all we have to do is squeeze in mountains of girl's toys soon! Won't that be fun!!

Chinese New Year

We spent a fun night with some of Philip's travel group
celebrating Chinese New Year.

Does anyone notice how very big Elijah is getting??
We are thinking by age 5 he may be taller than any of us!
No kidding!!
