It is another great day! I am getting really used to not working, and just taking it easy!!! Kassie (my sister) has been here all week. She has been awesome!! Any time I start to get up, she quickly asks "What are you doing?" She has been cooking, cleaning and keeping me company. I have just loved having her here. We will all go home for Christmas on Saturday. I am going to stay at my parents house for a week. Jon has to come back Christmas night because he has to work the next day. It will be nice to stay there and relax because everyone will be home!!!

Today Kassie and I went and picked our her wedding invitations, don't worry I was sitting the entire time. It is nice to get out of the house once in a while. This afternoon we are going to celebrate Christmas with the Michaels. I just love Christmas!

I continue to feel great! I can feel the babies move more and more everyday. I just love it, being pregnant is the best thing in the world!

Jon and I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Our Bobsled Team

Three heads in one picture. 2 girls (C&D) and 1 boy (A). We can not say enough how blessed we are!! Thank you for your constant prayers!!!

Thursday's Doctor appointment

Thursday we went back to the doctor for my 18 week appointment. It went really well, except for the fact our appointment was at 10 and I thought it was at 9. Needless to say we had to wait a little bit. When we went back to do our sonogram we quickly found out we were having our target sonogram. This is where they measure every part, of every baby, and check for birth defects. This appointment was supposed to be at 22 weeks. It was nice it was a surprise so I did not have time to worry about it. The sonogram took 1 1/2 hrs which is actually very quick considering you're checking on four babies! Monica (our sono tech) said our babies were so good it made it easy for her! Way to go guys! We are also excited because they did not find any birth defects!! Thank you God! What an answer to our prayers!!! Three of the four babies are measuring a week ahead, so that is awesome! The little girl under my right rib cage is the smallest and is measuring right on target. It is so cool since I can feel her the most (probably because she's kicking my rib cage, but I just love it!!!)

Oh, in case you were wondering, we are having 3 girls and a boy!

Rainy Day

Hi! I am enjoying another day of relaxing at home. I am starting to get a routine down. It consists of a TBS movie from 8-10, Little House on the Prairie 10-11, Murder she Wrote from 11-12 and Matlock from 12-1. As you can see I am really busy!!!! Oh ya, I also try to eat all day to get my 4,500 calories in!!! It's not as easy as you would think.

I had an interesting morning, I went upstairs to get my computer out of one of the nurseries and shocked myself. I called the doctor and told them I had electrocuted myself and she said if that was the case you wouldn't be talking to me. So... I guess it was just a little shock, but she reassured me everything is OK with the babies. I hope everyone has a great rainy day. It is a good day to stay inside:)

I am still feeling really good! God is good!!!

17 Weeks

Here is Tiff showing at 17 weeks. Time is flying by! Our doctor indicated that Tiff is showing 27 weeks already! Everything is going really well and Tiff has been so amazing throughout! Tiff has done a great job of taking it easy and relaxing this weekend. Exactly what she needs to be doing!

Today Rick (Tiff's Dad) and Jon began working on the first of two nurseries. We added a bead board and painted the walls red. Still another coat to go, but we are happy with the results so far! Jan (Tiff's Mom) helped us get organized by cleaning out a couple of closets that were in disarray! Huge help to us!

We will be back to the doctor this Thursday to see how our "kids" are growing! This Tuesday (12/11) will be 18 weeks. We'll keep you posted .....
