Poor Poohpinyere

Last week our dear friend Pooh Bear had a fateful accident. He will be greatly missed.

Pooh and his honey pots were a gift from Grandma. He is so cute and the kids LOVE him. Apparently Pooh was pulled off the dresser onto Edi's head. I was in the kitchen folding laundry when I heard a very loud noise followed by crying. I went into the girls room and there he was on the floor in several pieces. Edi was crying and she kept saying, "Poohpinyere fell on my head and he is broken." She had 3 HUGE knots on her head. I put ice on it and called Daddy home from work. Pooh stands about 18" tall and he is VERY heavy. I was very concerned so we took a quick trip to the Emergency Room, ALL OF US. I decided to take everyone because I wanted to sit with her and keep an eye on her, just in case. By the time we arrived the swelling had gone way down. We had had ice on it for about 45 minutes by that time. I am happy to report that she was OKAY! As for Pooh...well that is a different story. :o(

Edi kept telling everyone at the Hospital about how Poohpinyere fell on here head and now he was broke. She charmed them all. I could here them at the desk asking if they had seen the Pooh Bear girl, we had many visiters while we waited. They just stopped in to hear her little story. In the meantime Daddy was in the waiting room with the other three kiddos and lots of animal crackers.
Thank Goodness our adventure is over and Edi is doing just fine. We are currently looking for a soft stuffed replacement for Pooh Bear!!!

A Day at the Park


Henry, Edi, Sean, and Sophia

We had a BEAUTIFUL day at the park. The kids had a great time while Mommy tried to get some new photos. I have tried getting their pictures taken professionally but I just do not think we ever really get very good shots. So in the past few months we have been doing all their photos ourselves. It is a little stressful when you REALLY want some good ones, you NEVER know what your are going to get with 4 little 2 yr olds. :o)

But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spead your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you. For surely, O Lord, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
Psalms 5:11-12

Big Beds???? or NOT!

I have been searching for some time now for toddler bedding for the kiddos. They have never really needed it because my Aunt made their first two sets of blankets. Now, they are getting bigger and they needed bigger blankets. I looked EVERYWHERE for bedding and finally found the perfect set for each of the kids at It came right to my door with FREE shipping. I was very happy with all the bedding when it arrived!!

Sean loves cars, buses, trucks, etc. pretty much ANYTHING with wheels.

Henry LOVEs balls. Sports was the best I could come up with and he loves it.

Edi loves flowers and butterflies.

Sophia also loves flowers.

We also, as you can see, took the sides off their beds and put the toddler rails on. I thought they would be so thrilled with their new freedom.

Well... I was soooo WRONG. When naptime came they all cried for their bed rails. Daddy and I quickly put them back together. Well, as quickly as anyone could take off eight side rails and put on one big rail. They all CHEERED happily when they were all back together.

They laid down quietly and went right to sleep. Perhaps we are NOT quite ready for our big kid beds.

What do you think?

Our Tub is Shrinking!!!

We STILL do bathtime all at once. It saves A LOT of time. However, I think when we move again, which we will in the next 6 months or so, we need a BIGGER bathtub!!!

Sean, Sophia, Henry, and Edith.
Now if they were not ALWAYS trying to lay down and swim it may not seem soooo crowded.

Oh Grandma, Oh Grandma, We Love You Grandma!

Grandma came to visit and we had a GREAT time. This was the first time that the kids really understood that she was coming to visit. I told them several days before she came that we were going to pick her up and that she was going to come in a plane. They LOVE planes now. When we finally picked her up they were sooooo excited...and so was I!!!!




Edi, she is not really mad, just being silly.

Grandma and Edi, both being silly.

We drove 3 hours to the country to visit my mom's brother, Joe. Here is my mom with Sean, Edi, Sophia, and Henry. We made several attempt at a good picture but I was not so successful.

The kids LOVE grandma almost at much as Chris and I do. Chris taught them a little song that he made up and they have been singing about grandma for the past few days.
Oh Grandma, Oh Grandma, We LOVE you, Grandma.
They insert different names from family to each other and even our family dogs but for the past few days it has been A LOT of Grandmas.
Thank you for coming to see us Grandma, we cannot wait until we get to see you again. WE LOVE YOU BUNCHES!!!!

What Happened to ME???

Before this...

And this...

And this...

And this...

I had that...

And that...

And that...

I am finding now that I have NO idea who I am anymore. I am a MOM and a wife, shouldn't there be a little more to it?
I have recently noticed that the kids are getting much easier to take care of. I often find myself wondering what I WANT to do. It is a very odd feeling since I have pretty much been on survival mode for the past two and a half years. I am starting to have more time to THINK. That is not always a good thing! I am realizing that I miss some aspects of my life...pre-quadruplets. I know I know this is perfectly NORMAL, or so I have been told.
I miss working, running out the door with little to no preparation needed, being ready for church in under 30 minutes, working out 2 to 4 hours a day, spending quality time with my Hubby, and having days when I do not have to do ANYTHING.
I would not trade my life now for the world. I have the family I always dreamed of but I am thinking it might be time to focus, a least a little of my energy, on myself. I am hoping this will make me not only a better wife and mother but also a better person in general. Wish me luck. Operation Focus More on Mommy has just begun!!! ;O)
