Here's Lucas on his first set of skates. Daddy had bought those and they are quite neat since they grow with you (size adjustable) and they come with three settings - from completely locked rollers to rollerskating all the way.
This is a picture of the babies first Thanksgiving. We packed up the entire family and went to Granny's and had some very delicious dinner - adults and babies enjoyed it alike. All of the kids were so worn out from playing all day that they went out cold in the living room as you can see. Lucas always sleeps with his thumb in his mouth and a hand down his pants by the way.
Tyler, Julie and Noah's first birthday! I don't know why they look so silly in the first picture but this was one of the better ones showing their homemade birthday cakes. We also got them each a balloon but unfortunately you can only see the weight thing holding them down..oh well. This picture and their little celebration was actually two days after their actual birthday.
This picture was taken on their actual birthday. Lucas was definitely in the birthday spirit since he got to help them unwrap their presents. Unfortunately their birthday was just a big mess.
A few days prior to their birthday Daddy's best friend of many years passed away. Kevin fought brain cancer for most of his life and he ultimately lost his battle at the young age of 44. His funeral took place on the triplets first birthday. We went to the funeral in the morning while Granny watched all of the kids for us. It was a cold, rainy and very emotional day. When we got home, we celebrated Tyler, Julie and Noah's birthday but that didn't last too long either since we had to get ready for our first road trip to Houston.
I have no idea why I scheduled my appointment with the German Consulate for the day after their birthday but I did. So off we went on a 5 hour long road trip to Houston only to get my passport renewed. The trip went well and all children were very well behaved. Here's a picture of what it looks like to have three one year olds lined up in the backseat (Lucas is in the 3rd row by the way).
All three babies are now walking - Tyler and Julie while holding on to things and Noah without any assistance. And can I tell you that they get into everything?
And last but not least an update on their teeth - Tyler 7 (4 top, 3 bottom), Julie 4 (2 top, 2 bottom) and Noah 6 (4 top, 2 bottom).
I know I am forgetting things but I'll put them in posts to come.
