The Sunday After Christmas...........

It was time to get back to our regularly scheduled programming today!
While we have given up on making it to the early morning Sunday School class (at least for the time being) we DID make it to church on time!

Amber and Mike invited us to their house after church so we enjoyed a good spaghetti lunch while watching the Dallas Cowboys football game!!

Logan is in a 'Hug a Bunny' stage right now!
She melts my heart.

Harrison is looking more and more like his daddy!
He is such a SWEET boy!!!

Kailey is the WILD CARD and gives everyone a run for their money - siblings, parents, grandparents, ALL!!

Little Miss Trystan is a Little Polly Perfect if you ask me!

This was their THIRD Christmas!!!
My, how far we have all come!!
Here's what they looked like that first year:

The quads were so excited to show us some of their new toys!!!

This Tool Work Bench is the BEST!

Pretty COOL!!!

This was a gift from the other set of grandparents!

GREAT gift and all FOUR of the kids love playing with it!
That makes it a Win! WIN!! for sure!

I helped get lunch on the table while Amber worked on my iPad!
I finally learned how to turn it ON, and how to mute the volume but I could NOT get it to charge!!
Amber figured it out!! Louis Dean bought a super duper cover for it and had them put it ON for him in the store so when I opened the gift it would be ready to turn on!
Alas, they put the cover on OVER the cellophane wrapping! Problem #1!
Problem #2 is that the cover doesn't really fit properly. It presses down on the volume button and also covers the eye of the camera so I can't even take a photo!
She fixed it where I can charge it now and advised LD to take it to the Geek Squad tomorrow and have them put on the RIGHT cover! It was NOT the Geek Squad that put this one on but a regular employee. The day Louis Dean bought it he carried in a bag of 2 dozen cinnamon rolls for the Geek Squad so we feel sure they will take care of this problem. Louis Dean has a membership with them - that's the only way we can keep up with this electronic age!

We are watching what we say even more carefully these days as the babies latch on to certain words!
You never know what sounds will strike their fancy!
'Dungle' is the word Harrison is stuck on now.
I think that is a computer term he picked up from his Uncle!

Love her little face!!!

Kailey needed a break from being in group of FOUR today so we brought her home with us!
We watched a little football - 

 and then she and I snuggled up together in our bed WITH the heated blanket on and SLEPT for nearly TWO glorious hours!!!
She and I BOTH needed this!

Let me tell you - that Kailey girl talked every minute after she woke up!!

When she wasn't talking - she was SINGING! Loudly!!
Amber and Mike called and said they were at Bass Pro Shop with the other three and would come by and pick Kailey up. It was close to dinnertime so I invited them to come eat supper with us.
Lunch at their house! Supper at ours!

Kailey helped me get the potatoes ready for the oven!

Baked Potato Bar with fresh bacon, butter, sour cream, cheese, and French fried onion rings!
I added some garlic green beans and the rest of the Christmas ham.
Dessert was cookies and 'Bacon and Eggs!'

After we ate and diapers were changed and they were loaded up in the car to go home, 
Harrison said, "See ya Wednesday, MeeMaw! Okay??"
I assured him we would be there when he woke up from his nap Wednesday afternoon!!

It's been a good Sunday! Louis Dean and I both feel better and have enjoyed the day without overdoing it.

I do LOVE me some Dallas Cowboys!!!!

LD asked me if I would like to watch a program after I finish this post.
I told him we'd better watch as much football as we can!
The season is just about OVER!!!

Love seeing pictures of the quads. I can identify them now without having to read their names. My husband watched the Cowboys this afternoon in another room & using earplugs. I don't like football & I like Jerry Jones even less than I like football.

I can't believe how old they are getting! Looks like a fun Christmas!

The work bench is awesome! I got Anne Marie one of these a few years ago, but it doesn't do anything like this one does. There is nothing better than laying down with your grandchild to get them to nap, or to nap with them. Especially smelling their sweet baby hair. I wish I could bottle that smell forever. I think I will have a potato bar this week! Have you seen my new grandbabies yet?

Doreen@foxdenrd said...

Sounds like your grands keep you busy AND smiling! That Kailey sounds like a hoot :).

Joy@aVintageGreen said...

What a great day you and LD had with Kailey. Great workbench, best one I've ever seen, great sounds. Best nap time ever.

Wonderful times here. I knew ya'll would have such fun with all those babies. Gosh, how they have grown..I so remember Amber, big as a barn, carrying all those babies at one time...Now, she's all slimmed up, the kids are growing up...all is well with your soul, I know. :)

Susie said...

Linda, Those children just touch my heart...Kailey talking so much and carrying that chip bag...Harrison saying "see you wed. Okay?" They are all blessed to have you and LD and you both are blessed to have them near by to help raise and enjoy. God is good. Blessings to all of you. Love you guys, Susie

Very much enjoyed the look back at the first Christmas and the description of this day. What a great one!

Denise said...

What fun! I can't see your cute videos on my phone but was hoping I could on my iPad but nope :( Ordered a cover for mine from Amazon and will be here today!

Linda said...

Christmas is lovely but it's great to get back to normal.
I will email you with my address.

Bev said...

What fun it must be to have the kids at your place!!...Having one at a time is extra special!!

White Lace and Promises said...

They are just the cutest ever with their own personalities. I had to check out your blog for Christmas when you mentioned that you had the 4! Wow! How much fun is that! I know you must watch these videos over and over. What an exciting Christmas this year.

Gypsy Heart said...

Good times and precious memories! How bout them Cowboys? :)


Carla said...

I was thinking the same thing... that Harrison was looking more and more like Mike. Those babies are adorable. I guess I won't be able to call them babies must longer. Your term for Trystan was perfect. I like that Polly Perfect. Cute
