Merry Christmas from all of us!

Merry Christmas to all of you, from the six of us!

Christmas this year was all about Evan. It is impossible to have a bad Christmas with a four year old who believes in Santa, and really gets it for the first time. Evan's wish list this year had a single theme - Star Wars. We just recently introduced him to Star Wars (yes, we are sadly neglectful parents!) and it is all he ever talks about. He was not disappointed.

Santa brought him three (!) light sabers (one for him, one for Mom, and one for Dad, of course), Star Wars action figures, Star Wars books, Star Wars costumes, a Star Wars space ship, Star Wars pajamas, and even Star Wars underwear.

Here he is in full Darth Vader gear, with his mean, bad guy face.

And here he is taking a break in the sleeping bag that Gram gave him.

We didn't get the babies too much, mainly clothes and these cute hats. Here are Kate and Oliver trying on theirs.

After a long day fighting with light sabers, we were all pretty darn tired. A few of us passed out right in the middle of things.


Do the babies look thrilled, or what?

We hope you have all had a warm and wonderful holiday.

Willa as Oliver

So, I messed up today and dressed Willa in Oliver's outfit, without realizing what I was doing. She looks pretty cute as a boy!

Heads up and Rolling Over

Well, Kate has finally done it. After weeks of coming really close, she finally rolled over on her own today. She rolled from her back to her belly, sat there for a few minutes contemplating things, then rolled back onto her back. Quite the momentous occasion! Way to go, Kate!

The babies had their third RSV shot yesterday, so we have some new weights for you:

Kate - 15 pounds, 12 ounces
Willa - 13 pounds, 3 ounces
Oliver - 12 pounds, 12 ounces

This weekend we tried Kate on rice cereal for the first time.

It's hard to say if she liked it or not. She did actually swallow some, and she didn't complain, so I guess she liked it.

Or maybe she just likes the taste of the bib.
