Easter and Rodeo
Well I never really thought I would be celebrating Easter the last weekend of Rodeo!
We took the triplets to the Rodeo twice. I took them with some other Moms of Multiples and we had a great time. JT finally had some boys to hang out with! Then they made their appearance at the Junior Market Steer Auction. They loved seeing all their Rodeo family and Grammy and Gamps hogging them!!! We had such a great time.

Nope your not seeing things JT is wearing chaps!

This is how your get a picture of three 19 month olds!
Or atleast how WE are able too.
We celebrated a little early. We had our family Easter on Good Friday since mommy had to work all weekend. We had dinner and an egg hunt at their Great Grandparents house.

JT didn't like the grass so he wouldn't hunt!
Hazel had fun hunting eggs Claire did too!

If you notice Claire is stealing eggs out of H's basket!
K and H are the best cousins helping the triplets hunt and giving them eggs.

Whats in a Name

Whats in a Name?
In my daily tour through the blogs I visit. I was visiting 4tunate that's right quads. She gets the same question we always get and actually I was asked this weekend at work. How did you come up with their names? Well R wanted a junior??? I did like the idea of using family names though. So R said what about John Thomas it was his great grandfathers name. Well my dads name is also John so it was perfect (I love you Dad!) and R's middle name is Thomas too. So daddy is RT and little man is JT! Then I have always loved the name Claire which was my great grandmothers name and R liked it too. We knew if their was one girl in the bunch she was to be named after R's mom in some way. She was a special woman we lost 4 years ago. So her name is Claire Alice. Alice was also my great granmothers name on my grandfathers side. R and I thought for the longest time (okay 14weeks) that it was two boys and a girl and had picked out another boys name, but they told us it was two girls and a boy. So hmmm started going down the list of other females in both sides of the family and came across Hazel. There are several on both sides. So it was set and she has my moms middle name Hazel Lynn. So both grandmas got the middle names! That's how we named our little miracles.
