Happy Thanksgiving!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We spent it at grandma and grandpa Samuels' house. That is the quads first road trip. They did awesome!!! They adjusted like pro's!!! It was so nice to get away and for the babies to see something else besides our house!!! RSV season can get us a little couped up.

Lauren and Gavin doing a little reading before the big road trip!!

We are loaded up andready to go! We left on Wednesday and Jon came on Thursday so that he could clean the carpets. It was LONG overdue with four babies.

I love the angle of this picture taken at grandma's house. Jon and Lauren are watching Gavin.

They are so cute!!
Today we received the best early Christmas present. Our dear friends Mr.and Mrs. Hurliman made this shelving unit for us!! It is so nice to be able to organize everything and get if off the floor, since everyone is becoming very mobile!!!!

Sounds like you guys had a great trip & Thanksgiving. It is so much fun seeing the quads growing & changing. They'll have so much fun in a few more months pulling all of those baskets off of your new shelves! :o)

It was so great to see you on "Black Friday"! Glad you got a good deal on the baby "prison". Ha! I call it "prison" because my babies think that is exactly what it is :)

Love the update and all the pictures. I'll be glad when RSV season is over and we can get all 6 babies together!!

Love, Jessica

Hi Tiffany, this is Julia North-I used to work with you at Gap Outlet YEARS ago!...I just received the "Better Living" publication from Carle today and was so happy to see you and your family on the front cover! And so happy to see the address for your blog. You and your husband are AMAZING!! Jake and I think that it is hard with triplets, but I am sure one more really keeps you hoppin'! I would love to chat, share stories, etc. sometime. Email me if you get the chance.

You have a BEAUTIFUL family! Julia

Jon and Tiffany,

I saw your article in the Carle magazine and immediately felt a similarity to your family. I am currently a student at ISU in Normal and babysit once a week for a family there. They are very close friends of my family and they have triplets. They are now 6 years old, but I have been watching them since they were born. They were born 3 months early, and so I understand the stress of having them in the NICU. I am an early childhood education major and absolutely love being around kids. I know this may seem a little weird but I wanted to contact you guys somehow and let you know that I am interested in maybe helping you out since I am in Bloomington. I can give you more information about myself if you would like to e-mail me. I understand if this is a little too out there for you guys but I just wanted to let you know I am able to help! My e-mail is Thanks so much for taking the time to read this!!

All the best,
Katie Milazzo

HEY TIFF! You are on the cover of the Carle magazine this month! I screamed when I opened the mailbox and your beautiful family was sitting there smiling at me!

The babies are growing so fast and are so beautiful--I am constantly checking this site to see all the updates!

Merry Christmas!!!
