We're back!

Well - our little "bug" lasted a little longer than we thought it would! We are all just getting back to normal. This is big brother Evan who came down with the bug, too. All three were "chillin" together. Aren't they cute!?! We've also had a lot happen since we were sick, including having to say good-bye to my very first "baby" - my 13 year old American Eskimo Spitz, Hunter. He's been with me through it all and Gary says he was a good dog who had "done his job" and now that I had Austin and Logan to baby, he could leave me in peace. He was a good boy and I will miss him dearly.

And lastly, here's a video from Thanksgiving Day over at Grandma's and Grandaddaddy's! The boy's first leaf pile!

Temporarily closed due to virus..

We're on Day 4 of a virus. High fever, congestion, lots of poopey diapers - lots.

As their first sickness since being home, it's not too bad. I've just pretty much been stationary as one or both of them has been on my lap or snuggled up to me for the last four days. Not bad for me, eh!?! They've been real troopers and I hope, for their sakes, we're at the tail end of it!

We'll be back soon..but until then, here's a few pics of them all dressed up pre-sickness! This was supposed to be their Christmas outfit, but they're growing a little faster than we anticipated. So, they wore it to church last week. There's a tie, too and they started the day with their shirts tucked in, but we're lucky we snapped off a few pics at all!

Start a New Christmas Tradition!

Hey folks, just thought I would share a neat opportunity for those who may not know about it.

Rather than exchange presents at Christmas, my family takes the money that would normally be spent and we decide each year what to do with it. We've done the Angel Tree before, etc.

So, this year, we are going to buy a cow for a family in need!

Have you ever heard of Heifer International? In short, you can "buy" a cow, a goat, a chicken, other livestock or even sewing materials for a family living in poverty. You are basically "giving" the family a chance to support themselves. They, in turn, agree to pass on offspring from that livestock to another the gift keeps on giving, all in an effort to end World Hunger.

Now, it's way more in depth than that, but if you are interested, you can find out all sorts of additional information at their website: Click on "Give" and you can view a online catalog.

Below is a link to a great editorial. It helps explain a lot about adoptions in Guatemala and some about UNICEF:

Happy Halloween!

Okay, here's our Halloween pictures. Last weekend, we went to our "Mother's of Multiples Club" party. They went as Nascar drivers!

On Tuesday Night, Daddy helped them carve their first pumpkins, they loved it!!

Logan is in the green, Austin is in the blue and that's Austin's smile! We don't catch it often in pictures!
Logan did not like his "M" at first. Okay, he hated it!
Liking it better when Daddy played with us!Get ready!!
GO M&M's!

They did NOT tire and could have gone all night! They mostly enjoyed meeting and visiting with everybody.
And this is what scarey brother, Evan was doing hiding between our cars. When the little ones would come up to our door, Mason would play some scarey music real soft. You could see the parents start to look around and Evan would just be standing there half in the dark, but very near them. Scarey!!
