Thank you Noodle and Co.

Earlier this week, Kendra and I went to get our hair done and stopped at Noodle and Co. for lunch after. They had these really cute chopstick holders and I thought that the boys would love them, so I snatched three - hey, I did buy lunch there, so I could have used them myself.
Tonight for dinner, we had apples and fish sticks and I broke out the chopsticks for the boys to use. They each ended up tearing their apples into bite size pieces and then using the chopsticks to eat. (I don't know how to rotate these, sorry!)

But the cow did

Evan was helping put together a sticker nativity scene at school. He decided that the cow should be up near the top of the stable. His teacher asked him if he wanted the cow to be on the ground and he answered, "Well the cow jumped over the moon." So their nativity scene now has a cow in the rafters!

Ryan the music teacher

The other day, the boys teacher had to show me a video she took of the boys. Apparently, Ryan has decided that he is just like Daddy and is a conductor. He even has his own "band" to stand in front of. The baton is really the bow of a play violin but works well for his purpose.

Things I'm thankful for and surgery

My hysterectomy was a success.  My doctor was able to keep my ovaries so no menopause for this 29 year old!  We had been telling the boys that mommy had a boo boo that a doctor was going to fix.  After I had my IV out, Eric brought the boys in to visit.  I guess Trey really had been missing me the night before and just wanted to cuddle in the bed with me.  They all asked if I had a band-aid and if I was in the "hopital."  Ryan was my little engineer and wanted to see how the bed went up and down and how the over-bed table worked.  Evan just wanted to color and play with the stickers the nurses gave him.

I had to spend Thanksgiving in the hospital and could only have jell-0 and chicken broth, but I'm thankful for my family, that we are all healthy.  Eric is almost done with his masters, the boys love their school, I have a job and not having to look for a new one in this economy.

Pink Eye

Trey woke up this morning with a really really really red eye. The longer he was awake, the redder it got. After a quick trip to the doctor, it's not just another sty, but pink eye. It's always comforting when you are told that they'll put a few refills on it for when the other two get it.

Starting over again!

I'm going to give this another try again.  The boys are doing so many new things that I know I forget when they are older and this is the perfect way to remember them.  
For example:
Ryan says that "Life's a butter dream" for row, row, row your boat
Evan calls Ketchup, Chepchup
Trey can tell these fantastic stories that last forever and you can only understand every 5th word.
We've had a crazy few months.  Eric started his second year of grad school (only a few more months left!) and to help save money, he's living at Miami and the boys and I have moved in with my mom.  We have managed to move our whole house into her basement.  It's a tight squeeze, but it's only a few months.

Walking with two year olds

Yesterday, we finally had nice weather and we decided to take the boys for a walk after work. We had so much fun looking at the world from their eyes. Everything that Ryan liked, he would say "Oh look a ..." Even the weeds in the cracks were exciting. But I do think we've watched too much Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, all the birds were baby redbird and they were waiting for Goofy to come down the street to help baby redbird find it's mommy.

New at this

I am anti -new things on the computer. My husband set up a Facebook page for me, but I never ever get on it (don't have the time or see the point). BUT... I decided that this would be a great way to chronical the craziness that has become my life since my triplet boys turned two.

For example, bubbles and sidewalk chalk can provide hours of entertainment as long as you are willing to draw countless circles and zeros over and over. And in case you are wondering, a circle and a zero are two different things in a two year olds mind.

Come back often and see the latest updates and pictures.
