Crazy night routine

Since I work all day and Tony's home with the kids all day long, I've been on bedtime duty for a long time.  I get help if I ask, but for the most part it's all me (and Melanie if she's around).  Most nights I don't mind like tonight.  There was a bunch of silliness that occurred and as you can hear I was laughing hysterically!  I have to preface this that they moved the one bed out from the wall so they could climb underneath.  I'd also like to reference this youtube video from Disney Jr. - that should explain the 'wipe your feet'

After this video, I had to 'wrap' their babies in their blankets... they each have a set of twins and they each posed with their babies.  Sometimes I can't stand the cuteness!

What's your name?

I haven't posted in a while, but had to get this video up that Melanie took.  It's super cute to see them say their names.

Happy Thomas!

This past weekend, we went to the kids cousin's birthday party.  Thomas' party started at a place called Clown Around.  I didn't know what to expect at first, but within a few minutes of getting used to the environment, each one had a great time.  I was the dumb one that forgot to wear socks so I wasn't able to get very close to them on all of the things, but Tony was.  So if my pictures seem far away, it's because I was sort of far.  Oh well, next time I'll know better!

On the way there, we were trying to get the kids to say Happy Birthday Thomas, but it kept coming out as Happy Thomas!  They actually continue to say it (and it's been 4 days since the party!)
I have a short video of them saying it, but can't seem to get it to load...

Here's the pictures of them 'clowning around'!!!

Trick or Treat (Round 2)

Tony waited until I got home to take the kids out and I'm really glad he did.  I was going to get out of work on time, but that didn't happen.  So Melanie, Tony and I got them changed into their costumes and out the door we went.  We walked to the house next door and across the street and I couldn't believe how GOOD they all were.  We walked them around in the choo choo wagon, and visited a few houses of people we know and let them walk up the driveways.  Here's a few pictures our our excursion...

Another first happened on Halloween night - we actually made the switch to toddler beds!  We could have done it sooner, but just hadn't had a chance to do it.  They had all been climbing out of their cribs for a while and we didn't really anticipate any issues.  I think we made a great decision to try this for the first time on Halloween because they were out late and extra tired so we didn't have anyone that kept getting out.  We lucked out again!
