We told the boys to come straight into our room when they woke up and not even look in the living room and then we would all go together and see what Santa had brought. 

After we opened our presents, the older kids and I headed over to Nana & Papa's to open some more...

Then I went home to watch the babies and Bert took the other 3 over to his moms.  It was a fun, busy day!

Power Outage

Our power went out tonight around 5:30.  It was off for 5 hours!  Thankfully our house didn't get too cold.  The boys didn't like it very much but tried to stay entertained with coloring and puzzles.  They kept asking if they could go to Nana's and play.

The girls got their first dose of the Synagis shot today.  It has taken 2 months of back and forth with the doctors office, me, our insurance company and the specialized pharmacy.  Finally everything got settled and the doctor's office called today to say they had the shots in and I could come by anytime.  Mom and I bundled the babies up and took them in.  This is a special shot for premature babies to take during RSV season.  I've been told that it won't prevent the girls from getting RSV but if they were to get RSV the shot will help make their symptoms a lot more manageable.

Addi's favorite place to be is in her swing!  She's so good while she's swinging!

Holding Their Own Bottles

We finally made it!  The girls are starting to hold their own bottles now which makes feeding time so much faster and easier!

Rylee loves milk and asks for some multiple times a day.  I guess this time I didn't jump up fast enough to get it so she decided to get it herself!

Progressive Dinner

Tonight was the Williams Family Progressive Dinner.  Rick and Kim came by to babysit so Bert and I could go to it.  I was able to go to Ben and Becky's for appetizers and then had just made it to Mom and Dad's for the main dish when Bert came and said the baby's were crying pretty hard.  We made up some to-go plates and headed home. 

The kids got their new Christmas pajamas tonight.  They look so cute in them!

Birthday Extravaganza

I was very spoiled on my birthday yesterday!  Mom came over to help and she changed every diaper so I could have a break!  Bert came home early from work and brought us lunch and a slice of red velvet cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory.  Then Tiff came by later to help Mom babysit while Bert and I went out to eat to La Jolla Groves.  We walked around the Riverwoods shops too but it was a really cold night so we didn't stay too long.

Tonight I had a girls night out with my Mom, Tiff, Erin, and Becky.  We went to dinner at Olive Garden and then did some shopping at the Quilted Bear.  Dad and Bert took care of the kids!  It's been a great couple of days!  Now it's back to the grind =).
