and on the Menu--Ribs and Dirt

2/27: Rob loves to grill! We have not been grilling as often in the last couple months because it's been really cold and I was kind of burned out of ribs, steak and chicken. It's soup & casserole weather, in my opinion! We have been craving baby back ribs so today Rob grilled ribs! We invited our friend Aida (her hubby is in Afghanistan) and her brother Aibek to join us! Her brother attends Troy University and comes home on weekends! The ribs were awesome! So tender and so yummy!!
Aida and her brother Aibek Zebra Races! The boys still love to ride! (especially if they have an audience!)
Emily just chillin' on Elmo! This poor chair gets a beating! We are looking for little chairs for the kids but haven't found anything yet!
The second that Aida walks in the door Emily wants to be with her! Today, she cried when Aida left! Emily loves Aida!!I was cleaning the baby's room and came across this knit hat that my sister gave Emily! They played and played with it! They all wanted to wear it! We thought it was too funny! The boys looked like little fishermen!
The kitchen is somewhat baby-proofed (cabinets locked and plugs covered) but we don't usually let the babies play in the kitchen! Today we let them and oh, boy-we forgot about the potted geraniums by the door that we brought inside so they wouldn't freeze! Yes, Emily and Matthew ate dirt!!
Everybody--Say Cheese!

We can HELP, DAD!!!

2/26: It's Friday night! Our good friend Aida cooked dinner for us and brought everything over! It was a great meal! Thank You, Aida! I made yummy Chocolate cake for dessert!
We have two gliders that we have used soooo much! I can't imagine how many hours we have rocked babies!! Too many! Rob's glider keeps losing a bolt and a nut. So, every few weeks it comes out and Rob has to fix. Usually, Rob fixes when babies go to sleep. Tonight---he is fixing and guess what?? Everybody wanted to help Daddy! It was so cute. The minute he put the glider on it's side they all walked over to see what was going on! They are very curious!Emily tickling Austin
Emily loves to share imaginary fuzz with us! You have to pretend and put it in your mouth!

New Transportation

2/26: Yes, we bought an RV! It is huge and will allow us to travel with ease now! It is a big investment but after much discussion we decided that this will benefit our family! It is amazing what having TRIPLETS will make you do! It is used and bought from another military family! It only has 14,000 miles on it and is super clean!! We can't wait to travel with our family and enjoy it! By the way, yesterday I booked our first BIG trip. WE will be going to Disney World in early June! Disney Campgrounds have been reserved!! Mickey here we come! front view
Side view and as you see it matches our van perfectly which we will tow behind us!
