First Day of School!

Max -1st grade
Jack and Grace-3rd grade

Triplet's 1st Birthday!

Happy Birthday
Cole, Ava, and Henry!

Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate not only the babies special day, but helped us celebrate the survival of our 1st year of triplets.. a feat I wasn't so sure I could conquer. It was such a fun day that began with silent tears of joy during their morning feedings. I'm so very aware of what a blessing the triplets are. You can all imagine the never ending work and stress three babies would be but unless you have triplets, you can't imagine the overwhelming joy and happiness that comes from mothering three at once. I often feel that the most difficult part of having triplets is deciding which baby to cuddle and kiss on. They are wonderful and I can't express my gratitude having the privilege to raise them.
Happy,happy day!

Jack and Grace's 8th Birthday and Baptism

Before and Afters of my sweet kiddos

After the Baptisms and Confirmations, friends and family came to our house and enjoyed crepes and orange julius. It was a delightful day. I'm such grateful mommy.

Summer 2011

goofy helpers

my life got substantially easier when the babies started to hold their own bottles this summer!

lots and lots of swimming with friends this summer. it's so nice that they can all swim so well now.

My parents reported to the MTC on the 4th of July. This is most of my family sending them off. They are in the Denver Colorado North mission. Such amazing missionaries and such amazing examples for all of us!

The 4th of July Parade in Provo. Jack, Grace, and Max were there too.. i just didn't get many pictures that day since i was a little preoccupied roping the babies in every two seconds. :)

Lots of playing in our backyard since i was too chicken (smart) to take the babies anywhere with water. they loved their little pool and splash pad and i loved that we could fit in fun in the sun in between naps. lots of smiles and giggles!

good thing i have 3 amazing helpers for my 3 babies! all summer long the big kids would come up with fun things like this to entertain the babies with.
this day was rocket day (inspired by the baby boy's t shirts) haha.
