Christmas Vacation

My vacation has been great so far...many visits with friends and family. We spent Christmas with my family in Gadsden this year. Wow, what a difference a year makes! It was a little crazy to say the least with 3 new babies. I also found out that my two hate loud noises, so when my family got going with stories and laughing, the twins started crying. Not good! They will have to learn to deal with some noise in Gadsden. Here is a picture from Christmas Eve -- the 4 boys and Miss Priss in the middle. Last time for the cutest outfits in the world.... They can now be retired.

Christmas morning started early because the boys had to leave and go to their other grandparents' house. The twins were set up by the "kitchen tree" and as you can see we took full advantage of the fact they don't know what Christmas is yet! Henley received her potterybarn chair, a baby huggums, and 3 of her favorite green hospital pacifiers. Davis also received a potterybarn chair, his helmet (which was the biggest gift of them all!) and some pacifiers. They also got SO many toys and clothes from the family -- let's just say it was a VERY MERRY Christmas!
I was changing to the "no flash" on the pic and although it messed up, I thought it just looked cool.
Henley sitting in her new chair. They are still a little small to be able to sit for a long time, but I expect these will be great in the near future.

Now, I realize I've been lacking in the blogging department lately. December is crazy for everyone, I know, but teaching on top of twins did me in this year. We were in survival mode and we didn't even decorate! Again, taking advantage while we can. Without blogging, I have not let you know about Davis and the helmet. He was fitted right after Thanksgiving and we've had it for about a month now. I'm not really good at making him sleep in it and I need to get better, but when I take it off in the afternoons, some of the places on his head are so red and angry, I just can't bring myself to put it back on after the bath. He has another appt to have it shaved down in places, so maybe after that we can finally start 23 hrs a day!
Davis is a champ about it. I'm so thankful it is him and not Henley having to wear it. For the most part, he doesn't complain.
Here they are before the last day of school. Cute outfits (thanks to Nonni) that are now retired too!
What a wonderful, wild Christmas we had with my family. We're off to LA now, to watch history being made. Can I get a Rollllllll Tide?
