Over a year........

I have my blog address on a spina bifida board I belong to. A mom I've been messaging on the board said she saw my blog..........I told her I hadn't updated it for a's definetly been a while! One of the last things I wrote was that Casey had just gotten his 2nd nine weeks report card for 1st grade...............well today, he got his 3rd nine weeks report card for 2nd grade! LOL! (All A's again) :) Cody and Connor are now in preschool and LOVING it! :) They are doing great. Cody walks all day at school. Socially, they are little men! LOL! They are so verbal and doing great with their preschool work. They are still with their wonderful baby-sitter 3 days a week and at preschool 2 days/week. Connor started playing t-ball this winter. Cody signed up but REFUSED to play! LOL! Connor is loving it! Casey is in 2nd grade as I said. He is LOVING it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) He's doing very well with his school work.

Big Boy Beds/Cody's Clinic/Casey's Report Card

This entry is way over due!

Casey got his 2nd nine weeks report card and got all A's again! He's doing so well in 1st grade! We're so proud of him!

Cody had a clinic visit on January 15th. He did great!! I was so proud of him walking into Children's Hospital! :) He had a great check up with his doctors. We are going to start potty training with Cody and Connor both! Wish us luck! He sees his hip surgeon next week to see about the hip surgery. We'll update more on that soon.

Connor continues to love cars! He is very into police cars!

Mom and I took them for their birthday pictures this week. I can't believe they will be 3 next weekend! What a ride these 3 years have been!

The biggest news is that the twins are finally out of their cribs! Only one bed came in on the first day only one bed came so they slept together. They listen to music in their room and they are doing pretty well staying in the beds.

Here's a pic of the new big guy beds. They are great because Cody can get in his! Right now they have crib matresses in them but we can do twin matresses when we are done.
Another picture of the two of them (Cody blue jammies, Connor red).

Here is Connor on his first night in his new bed.

And here is Cody in his bed.

Casey and Connor

So most of my posts end up being about Cody.........this one's all about Casey and Connor!

Not too long ago, Casey mentioned to me that he needed a room-mate! He pointed out that he's the only one in the house without a room-mate. He said Cody had Connor and I have Matt! I guess the kid has a point. Well tonight I showed him the beds we ordered for Cody and Connor. Since I figured he's going to a little bummed that they are getting race car beds I asked him what kind of bed he'd like to get if he got a new bed. He said bunk beds. He said then I could move into his room and he could sleep on the top bunk and I could sleep on the bottom bunk. LOL! He's a hoot!

Connor said some hilarious things tonight! He asked me where Alice (our baby-sitter) was. I told him he was at her house. He said "She's playing with my toys?" Yeah sure Connor........Alice sits and plays with your toys when you are not there! Then I asked him not to drive his car on the kitchen table while he was eating. He said "Mommy, you hear my words? It's not a car, it's a bulldozer!" LOL!

Cody has his clinic visit Friday. We are anticipating a great appointment! :) We're looking forward to our traditional clinic visit lunch with Aunt Connie!

Lazy Snow Days At Our House! :)

Snow Days Rock!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) This is my 3rd snow day and Casey's 2nd. Cody and Connor love looking out at the snow.

Here's Casey playing wii.......I think in a way he's ready to go back but he's also happy just to hang out around the house! Yesterday he crawled in my bed around 8 and said "I wish we could stay home one more day." I told him to look out the window! He was so excited. He started jumping on my bed saying "Snow Day, Snow Day!" He's gonna get a rude awakening this afternoon when we clean his room! I'm sure that's not what he has in mind for his day off!

Cody and Connor LOVE their bean bag chairs from their baby-sitter. Now what could better than this on a day so cold? Laying in a room full of toys watching t.v. in your jammies! :)
I had to share these pics from New Year's Eve. At one point, Cody was feeding the cake to Connor. I could not get an action shot of was SO CUTE! :)

Here's another one of them with mom.

2009 was a great year for us and we're looking forward to a fabulous 2010. It's hard to believe the twins will be 3!!!!!!!!!!!! We painted their room this weekend and put up a border. They are getting toddler beds soon.
Casey is doing great in 1st grade. He really enjoyed the football players coming to read to them every week during their fabulous season. He is on two basketball teams right now. His games start this weekend.
Connor is talking SO MUCH! He does not miss a thing! He is also becoming a bit of a tattle tail.....LOL! He likes to point out to me what Cody's doing that he should not be doing! They got a Little Tykes Basketball Hoop for Christmas and he LOVES to play on it!
Cody continues to do so well! He walked around Buehler's the other day with Matt while I got groceries. He's everywhere with his little walker. His PT is working with him on using arm crutches. He has some upcoming appts. this month and next so we'll be updating on those. He seems to be doing so well! He's one amazing little dude!

That's it for now...........Here's to a great 2010!

Merry Christmas!

The boys had a great Christmas! :) We were very busy! The boys were in our church Christmas Eve service and we had 6 Christmas celebrations in all! They got SO MANY toys! Casey's favorite was his DS. The twins' favorite is their Thomas stuff. My favorite gifts are Mario Brothers and Casey's Bop It! We are still trying to get everything organized and put together. Lots of batteries have been installed! It was so great seeing the boys so excited about their presents. Everything Connor opened he said "What is it mommy?" Casey wanted to go to bed at 6:15 on Christmas Eve so Santa would come. Then he came home from church and couldn't fall asleep until after 11:00..............he wouldn't even watch t.v. because he wanted to fall asleep so bad! I hope you enjoy the pics! It's hard to believe 3 years ago, I was getting steroid shots in case the twins were born at 28 weeks......3 years later, Cody is a walking 'miracle' and Connor is running around everywhere like a little wild man! We are so blessed!
By the way, I have no idea why my camera says 12/24......these are pics from Christmas day! I guess I need to change the date on my camera! :)



Cody was unimpressed with Casey's 7:00 wake up call!
He needed a rest when he was done with his presents!

Christmas Pics Of The Boys.......

Merry Christmas from the boys! :) Here are a couple of new pics of the gang.........They are IN LOVE with Santa. I figured the twins would be scared of him but they have seen him twice now and they are not. The twins went to the movies for the first time today........Casey was quite worried about what would happen if they talked in the movie but they did fine! :)

Christmas Time Is Here!

Well the shopping madness has begun! After three Thanksgiving dinners we are ready to move on to Christmas. The tree is up.......unfortunately last year's lights don't work but the tree is up. It's just waiting on me to get to Wal Mart and buy some new lights so it can get decorated.

The boys have been so funny lately. Here' s a quote from each of them:
Cody says "Turn on the dark" when he turns off a light.
I asked Casey what he wanted for supper last night. I gave him a few choices since Matt was gone at a game so it was just a left over night. He said "Is the pizza shop open?"
I said something to Casey about presents and Connor said "Presents (raising hands in the air) Where's the presents?"

They are so funny! The twins are talking so much and Casey is doing great in 1st grade! He's having a FABULOUS year this year!

Cody continues to amaze us with his progress. He is now walking everywhere when we go places (like into restaurants and the like). Connor is happy because now he gets to walk too!

That's it for us. Christmas tree pictures coming soon! :)
