Christmas and More

The C family has been very busy since Thanksgiving. We threw my mom a surprise retirement party with about 20 of her friends some she hadn't seen in 10 years. Then we went to Austin for my sister's graduation with her Masters Degree. We ate breakfast with Santa went to Lights in the Heights. Then it snowed in Houston! The triplets enjoyed watching the snow fall and actually cover the ground for a few hours. We had several Christmas pagents at church and Christmas Eve service with dancing camels! Sheesh!
Breakfast with Santa

We were awakend Christmas day by a beautiful choir of two girls singing Jingle Bells what a wonderful way to wake up. The triplets had a great Christmas spending time wtih family and eating alot. They are still discovering new toys everyday.

Mimi's Retirement Party

We are excited as their vocabulaies have exploded. We are truly blessed to have three healthy beautiful children to love and that are loved. I fell blessed to have a wonderful husband who loves and cares for us the way he does. I wouldn't be the same without him (love you Daddybabe!).

Lights in the Heights

We want to wish you all a Happy New Year. We look forward to what lies ahead with us in this New Year.

Happy New Year

Snow in Houston?
Well who would believe in a few short months we can have a massive hurricane and snow? Well its true at about 3:30 the snow started falling. The triplets enjoyed watching from the window as we are just now getting over sickies. Anyway this picture was out our front door. Enjoy!

Two or so!

Drum Roll Please!
Well I know some of you are curious how we fared with IKE. Our side fence came down and decided to try and come into our house. So IKE came to visit. We also had some water damage in our living room and I'm sure there is some in the Dining room but since we are going on 10 days with NO POWER we can't vacuum up the glass to no for sure yet. We are staying at my mom and dads so its not bad. We are told we may not have power till Thursday. We are grateful to be safe and sound. The rest is temporary!
So here are the results:
JT 29lbs 150z
33.5 inches long (he is 1 1/2 inches taller than his sisters!)
He is all boy full of rough and tumble. He loves his sisters or loves to harass them I'm not sure which :). He loves to make you laugh and tickle you.
Claire 27lbs 5 oz
32 inches long
She is the little mother hen. She has to know where everyone is all the time. She is also the chatter box. She has the most words and is always singing. She is warming up in dance class but not sure we will make it??
Hazel 26lbs
32 inches long
Well little miss peanut. She has given us a scare but in the end she has a cyst on her Kidney that we will be following up with a Urologist about. Compared to what it was looking like we are so thankful. She loves to sing her ABC's and 123's. She is a very picky eater and has to stay on soy milk since she was breaking out to milk. She DOES NOT like dance class so we will give it a few more weeks and decided?
We have started potty training but nothing intense. Claire has gone a couple of times but nothing consistent. They even say potty to Hazel and she runs screaming! We are in no hurry!!!
We have also decided to separate JT and the girls. They are not sleeping well at night and on the weekends. They are playing and aggravating each other. Our plan was to work on their rooms but IKE crushed that plan. So Mimi and Pawpaw took them early so we could get the work done.
Pictures will follow when we get home and get power!!!

My four Ballerinas
C, K, H, H
Aunt Lelley found these leotard! Thanks

Warming up to their room
So here's how it went! They went into class and cried! So Miss S. tried to make a deal with them that if Mommy came in they would participate!?!? hmm well Mommy ended up holding Haz but Claire did warm up some and even put on a tutu! I think we were successful? Next week we are going to not let them see Mommy outside the room and they should do better.
Claire in her tutu

Claire checking herself out in the mirror. You will notice in the background Haz glued to me!! :)

Okay for those who don't know our Pawpaw works in Alaska. He gave us these very special books from Alaska for our birthday. We have the best Pawpaw EVER- The Triplets!
Mimi and Pawpaw got the trips tricycles for their birthday and Mommy and Daddy got them helmets (safety first!!). So we took them to Mimi and Pawpaw's house on Sunday for their first test drive. Somehow these tricycles have horns????

Claire honking her horn

You talking to me? Her shirt says little miss giggles!
JT driving!
Yeah I'm two! His shirt says Mr. Mischief my middle name is trouble?
Hazel her shirt says little miss Sunshine (does it fit?)

We THANK all of you for coming to their party and those that couldn't that were thinking of them on their day. The lord has blessed us in so many ways over the past two years.
The trips promoted Sunday to the two year old class and will promote Monday at school!!
