A time to be Thankful

I count my blessings everyday.  Sometimes many times during a single day.
I have so much to be thankful for.
My husband.  A man that fulfills the definition of husband and father ten fold.  He is supportive and kind.  Nurturing, caring, he loves his family more than any words could even begin to describe.  He is my rock.
My beautiful daughters.  Not a day passes without looking at them and thinking about how wonderful life is.  They are amazing.  Four miracles.  They are my heart and my soul.  I am a better person because of them.  I learn so much about myself, by being their Mommy.
I think about how fast time goes by.  Even though the days are long sometimes, the years are moving so quickly.  The day Chloe was born, my life was forever changed.  Blissful.  She is such a beautiful spirit.  So sweet and sassy.  She has so much love to give.  The triplets, brought completion to our family.  More than we could have ever imagined.  I am in awe every time I think of how far we have come since that day we learned there were three tiny lives growing inside me.  They are little people now, our babies aren't babies.  They are full of energy and spunk all of the time.  They are smart and sweet and love life.
My Mom and Dad and Matty's mom Valerie.  They are such a huge part of our lives.  They are always giving and helping and have so much love for the Beauties.  I am so grateful to have them so close and so involved in helping to raise our family.  Always willing to help whenever we ask.  Being supportive and showing us the way to see that are daughters are as happy as we were as children.  Showing us true examples of being a parent.  I know Matt and I are the parents we are because of our own parents examples.
Our nieces, Molli and Haley.  Two girls that are growing up so quickly.  We cherish them.  They are huge role models to our girls and I hope that the relationships will continue to grow with them, as I know that they will.  Of course their parents, Chad and Dee and Ande.  Always there to lend support when we need them.
My wonderful friends.  All of them.  So much support and love in so many different ways. Old friends, and new friends.
So many people to be thankful for.  It brings tears to my eyes when I try and put into perspective how full my heart is.  I am thankful today and everyday.  My life is wonderful.  Amazingly wonderful.
My heart is smiling.
Happy Thanksgiving.

Don't worry Tiger...I don't think they will take your spot on the Pro Tour

Getting ready for the shot.  Daddy teaching Farrah how to play mini golf...sort of
They literally ruled the course.
It may be true that they spent more time hoping on the holes than putting balls into them.
Silvie gets ready to try on her own.
She shoots, she scores.  Chloe is actually very good.  one of four not too bad.
Daddy helping Farrah again.
Almost Jocey!
Silvie may have made more shots if she would have held her club correctly.
Or maybe she made more this way.
Placing it right where she wanted it.  That's legal right?
Posing on the course.  Farrah is always ready for the camera.
Silvie taking a little break.
Chloe concentrating. 
I think it went in Farrah.
Sizing up the mission.
Farrah hanging with the "green" frog.
This is how it's done now.
Good form.
Jocelyn literally stopped and crawled in here to try to take a nap.
She was really tired.
Chloe asking for something.

All in all it was a fun experience to watch the girls on the course.  I think we learned that the triplets are not quite ready for mini golf, but they still had a great time.  The course was under black lights, which was pretty neat.  The music was loud, which is good when my four children are running wild in a public place.  They were dancing and golfing and smiling, which is all that matters-the smiling.

My Beauties

When I look into the eyes of my beautiful little girls, I cannot help but to think about how truly blessed my life is.  I never could have imagined I would be where I am today.  The things Matt and I have built together.  This family.  So full of love.  Nothing else matters in the grand scheme of things.  This family is my entire being.  It is the reason I am here.  I am the Mommy to these beautiful little people.  I am happy.  I am full.  I love my life.

Happy Halloween!

Trick or Treat...

Halloween has always been one of Mommy's favorite days.  Really, what is better than dressing up and collecting candy?  Exactly, not much.  This year in the arsenal we had a Vampire, a Devil Girl, a Penguin, an Elephant and of course an Alligator.
We hit a new neighborhood this year and had a BLAST.  The weather was very nice, chilly yet not cold enough to warrant the winter coats.  Perfect haunting weather.  Other than Chloe's wig being "itchy" it was a perfect night.

 Daddy stopped by for a visit before we hit the houses.  He handed out pencils and tattoos.  Which, to our Beauties, overrule candy any day.

 Farrah catching a ride in the wagon.
 Silvie hitching a ride in Papa's arms.
 This was one of the homes we visited.  The woman was dressed in full witch costume.  She had great goodies, special ones for each age group.  Everyone loved her except Jocelyn, she was VERY afraid of her.  Silvie made sure to lend comfort.  "She's not a for real witch, Jocey, just a "tend" one."  Jocelyn didn't care if she was real or not.  she froze and would not move.
 Chloe decided to lose the wig for the last few stops.
