I'm going to try to get this blog all caught up for those of you who follow the trio through this site. Sorry I've been a slacker. I took a little break because work, life, etc. was busy, but I need to get this up to speed since it's the best way that I keep track of the silly stuff they do.

First order of business, pictures of our winter photo shoot for our Christmas cards. We did these in early December because Billy grew a terrible mustache in November, and I couldn't stand the thought of that hideous thing in our pictures.

Here they are with Papa Nando and Maureen.

They love their Mimi! They start every sentence to her with, "Hey, Mimi." She wants to get a vanity plate for her car that says that.

Silly, family fun.

There were a bunch more from the photo shoot, but I just wanted to give a sample.

The grandpas still watch the kids every Tuesday. They are constantly seeking out new ways to keep them entertained. On this particular Tuesday, it rained, and this is what the grandpas came up with. Let me tell you, we had to do some serious scrubbing in the bath tub that night.

We visited Santa like a million times during the holidays. The picture above is from breakfast with Santa at their school. It's still impossible to get a picture with all of them smiling and looking at the camera. Next Christmas maybe we'll have better luck. Didn't I say that last year?

We also had breakfast with Santa is our neighborhood. They enjoyed that fiesta as well...especially since there were donuts there. Abby is obsessed with the powdered sugar variety and Marie likes the chocolate frosted, but she eats all the frosting off and leave the lower 1/2 of the donut. Will eats them all.

Here they are at Mimi's waiting on some Christmas cookies. Look at Will's face. He's so funny.
