Christmas Season

Well this month has been a crazy one although life is calming down. I finished school with straight A's in which I am very grateful to be finished. We went to see Santa a week ago where he read the kids a story and held the boys on his lap. MacKayla would have nothing to do with Santa and screamed.

We also received a nice surprise this morning. The doorbell rang and there was about 20 people standing on the doorstep to say Merry Christmas we are here to deliver a Playhouse for your kids. This playhouse weighs 4,000 pounds and has electricity going to it. The playhouse giveaway was done by Salisbury homes were they are giving 4 playhouses to St George residents and 4 to Utah County residents.

We hope you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

3 walkers, 3 climbers, 3 bitters HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We now have 3 walkers, 3 climbers (on everything), and 3 bitters. I am struggling to know how to handle the biting issue so if anyone has suggest it would be greatly appreciated. The doctor told me to bite that back. It doesn't seem to phase them. We have at least 3 bites daily that leaves bruises.
Our life is still pretty crazy around here with Trevor switching jobs and now works from 9:00 am to midnight Monday through Friday. I am still in school full time and will be finished with 3 of my classes by Thanksgiving. I have found an awesome babysitter who comes and watches kids while I go to school. The kids love her and adore her and is always excited to see her.
I am also looking forward to this weekend to be able to spend sometime with my mother in law and sister in laws while attending Time Out for Women. it is defiantly a much needed break from out day to day lives. I am also excited for the Holiday's to be fast approaching and enjoying the True meaning of Christmas.
I hope things are going well with you all and hope you have an enjoyable November.

Craziness is still happening

Well school is more intense than I thought along with being a mom, wife and trying to clean house. Jayden is struggling once again. I gave him a breathing treatment at 2:00 this morning and another at 8:00 we are now waiting to hear from the doctor to see what is the next step. In other news we are going to be very busy with weddings for the next several weeks. Don't plan on seeing any updates for awhile unless a miracle happens and I get caught up and ahead with school. Hope everyone is having a fantastic September.

Lots going on

Well life is changing by the day it seems like around here. I have been crazy busy with my flower bow business which has been so nice to have the extra money. Then lots of family have been in town. Jayden went to the ER yesterday morning in the wee hours for respiratory distress. To put it lightly we have found out Jayden has pneumonia and has been getting breathing treatments everyday and will for the next week. Please keep him in his prayers as he goes through yet another battle of sickness. Sunday night was very scary for Trevor and I to see the suffering Jayden went through and I am very grateful for doctors who don't take their jobs lightly. And last but not least I started school full time at Dixie yesterday. I will be very busy with school work and hope to finish a couple of my classes early. Thanks to Trevor's sister AJ for coming down today to save us from the craziness around here. Stay tuned I will post new pictures soon.

1 year check up

Today the triplets had their 1 year check up and the stats are in

Jarrod - weighs 21.38 lbs. length 30.5 inches
Jayden - weighs 19.38 lbs. length 29.5 inches
MacKayla - weighs 17.75 lbs. length 29 inches

They are all doing wonderful and the doctor is very impressed we have 3 healthy babies with a clean bill of health. All of them got 4 shots today which was very sad. We also have been keeping the triplets home from church since May to help prevent them from getting sick. I was tired of always having sick kids and now knowing Jayden has asthma I want to keep them as healthy as can be especially with swine flu season right around the corner.

1 year old pictures will becoming soon. We were going to take them tonight but all were fussy so postponed until next week. So stay tuned

Birthday Party

Saturday we had a fun filled birthday party with some of our friends. Thank you to Sarah for providing the 4 cakes. They were delicious. The 2 layer cake consist of pistachio on top and the bottom layer had chocolate mint. Can I say I am still craving these cakes. Thank you to all our wonderful family and friends who contributed in presents and helping us get car seats and diapers.

Triplets 1 year old Birthday

Yesterday was Jarrod, Jayden's, and MacKayla's 1 year birthday. The dy started off by having an eye appointment for each baby. They did well under the circumstances. We went to Applebee's for dinner and had their celebration bash. The boys loved their cake. MacKayla was not too impressed. Tonight we are celebrating with many of our friends and family at a birthday party in their honor. Pictures of tonight will come later. In the meantime ENJOY!

Countdown Begins

In less than 5 days the triplets will turn 1. I can't believe time flies like it has. On Friday their actual birthday you could tune into Kony Country and they will be announced on the radio, then tune into Good Things Utah to see their picture, and finally tune into Sprout kids to see what they have in store for them. On Friday they have a doctors appointment so we will celebrate on Saturday. Can't wait.

Taylor's swimming lessons

Taylor is currently taking swimming lessons at Dixie college. This is his second session of swimming lessons this summer. I can't believe how well he is doing. On Wednesday he was moved up to the next class since he was advanced. He is learning how to swim on his own and dive from the diving board. I have not seen him this happy in soooooo long.

11 months old

Can you believe the Triplets are 11 months old. That's right 11 month's! Where in the world has the time gone? Jayden saw the doctor again and all is well. If he doesn't get an ear infection within the next month we will opt not to get tubes. Jarrod weighs 20 pounds 9 ounces walks around furniture and has 4 teeth. Jayden weighs 18 pounds 5 ounces has learned to pull himself up on things but is still army crawling and has 2 teeth on the bottom working on the 2 top. MacKayla weighs 16 pounds 4 ounces, walking around things and is the pickiest eater of all. She also has 2 teeth on the bottom. I love to watch the babies interact with each other and play together. This has become a fun age. Thank you to a Rhanda a friend of mine she spoiled the kids with these mesh bags they can chew on. I absolutely love them and so do the babies.

A Fun Filled Week

We had a lot planned last week. We were able to go have lots of play dates with friends. Here is Jayden getting a breathing treatment on Wednesday in which he is doing much better. On Thursday it was our friend Zach's birthday we headed to Red Lobster with him and his wife for a nice dinner and surprise for Zach. His wife arranged a singing telegraph of a lady dressed in a french maid costume. (lots of fun), then on Friday we went swimming with some friends at Coral Canyon (lots of work) and then headed to Green Springs water park after. I now have very tan kids. On Saturday we had the privilege to attend our home teachers sealing in the St George Temple. What a neat experience. Thanks to all who made our week.

Jayden's Doctor visit

Today Jayden went to the doctor since he was wheezing so bad he couldn't get a deep enough breath. We found out he once again has an ear infection, yeast infection, bronchitis, and has been put on a breathing machine. Poor guy. He will go back in 2 weeks to see if his ear infection is gone. If not he will be sent to a specialist to have tubes put into his ears. When he was weighed today he weighed 18 pounds 1 ounce. I hope he sleeps better tonight.

Catching Up

We have been very busy the last couple of weeks. I made this diaper cake for a friends baby shower. Then the family headed to Salt Lake for Trevor's Birthday. Trevor and I stayed at a cute little bed and breakfast in Salt Lake while his family watched all of the kids. Saturday we meet up with his family at the air show which Taylor loved. Trevor was such a good dad to stand in line for 2 hours so Taylor could go inside the cockpit of this plane. Taylor was soooo happy. We have been able to have lots of play dates this past week with some great friends. These are pictures that I took yesterday of our playdate at Xavier's and Wyatt's house. Taylor played without any pesturing from 1:00 - 5:00 was such a nice break. Thank you Rhanda for having us over. We now also have 3 teethers. Jarrod is getting all 4 teeth (2 on top, and 2 on bottom) at the same time, Jayden is getting 2 on the bottom and MacKayla is getting 2 on the bottom. They haven't been the best and we have runny noses and low grade fevers. I can't wait until all the teeth come in I feel so bad for them. I hope all is going well at your homes.

Start of swimming lessons

Today Taylor started swimming lessons. He cried all morning saying he didn't want to go. After getting there and getting in the water he had no problems.

Trevor and Taylor setting up camp

Friday night we camped at Quail Lake and had a blast. We got to camp about 6:30 pm set up camp, and cooked our hobo dinners. After dinner we enjoyed the fire roasting marshmallows for smores and wolf ums. Can we just say yummy. Taylor's favorite part of camping I think is "peeing" on the rock. He kept saying he had to go "pee" every 5 minutes. The babies slept great, almost the whole night. Saturday morning we woke bright and early took down camp and headed for the lake. Trevor and Taylor enjoyed a little swim, then we headed home for showers and naps. Saturday evening we went back to have dinner and campfire with Melanie and Danny again. Now it is time to get the laundry down and finish unpacking.
