Birthday Party!! 02/20/2010

Hi Everyone. Ethan, Zayne, and Tristan celebrated their second birthday today at a party we hosted at our house. Papas and Grandmas were all there along with cousins Jordan, Dianna, Dylan A., Megan, and Dylan B. Tons of friends were here including Patrick, Lauralee, Katie, and Gary. Uncle Terry, Uncle Jim were here too. Brenden had so so much fun with his friends Claire and Rachel and ALL of his cousins.

Today was a fantastic day.

Ethan, Zayne, and Tristan had such a phenominal time. They are getting big! Please take a look at these photos and video. Thanks for all of your support and friendship.

The boys turn TWO!

Hi everyone. It has been too long since we posted last. And, Ethan, Zayne, and Tristan turned TWO on 2/13! Amazing.

It has been an interesting few months recently. All three of the boys are enamored with their big brother Brenden. And, they are very very talkative. They run through the house like three little tornadoes. Ethan, Zayne, and Tristan all have invented their own language that only they can understand. Tanya, Brenden, and Jeff recognize a few words but even tonight Tanya heard Zayne and Ethan carry on a three minute conversation about toys in a language that was absolutely not english.

Quick trip down memory lane

  • During the summer of 2009 we took Brenden, Ethan, Zayne, and Tristan to the Outer Banks of NC twice along with lots of cousins and even some family from Oklahoma City! Each trip we stayed for one week and all of the kids loved it.

  • The first trip to OBX was the week of July 4. We took all four boys plus cousins Megan, John, Mason, and Jordan - that's eight kids!

  • The second trip to OBX was in late August around MP 5 and we went with with Tanya's family from OKC and Richmond including Tanya's aunts, uncle, cousin, second cousin, all of our kids cousins, the four boys - it was awesome.

                • In the Fall Brenden had some outpatient surgery to help repair the scar on his neck; it's looking so much better.

                • This winter we've had tons of snow. Take a look at all these cool shots. Brenden, Ethan, Zayne, and Tristan had so much fun that season

                • Tristan had a outpatient surgery in Feb 2010 because of a bad splinter in his left heel. He's doing great now.

                We're planning a trip to Oklahoma City later this year. That will be our big adventure for 2010. Plus, you all know we'll be at the beach too this summer; that goes without saying. We promise to keep this blog alive with more frequent.

                Jeff, Tanya, Brenden, Ethan, Zayne, and Tristan.

                Pool and Dinner Please

                Folks - what a crazy weekend we had. Our neighborhood pool is up and running and a great place to visit. Tanya asked Jeff to lather up Ethan, Zayne, and Tristan on Saturday afternoon with sun screen especially their heads. She took Brenden to the pool separately along with some cousins.

                Well, Jeff decided to put 60 SPF No-Ad on the boy's heads. Problem is --- it ran into their eyes when they sweated during the walk to the pool and their eyes got really irritated. We called the doc as well as poision control and everything turned out ok but the three little guys were NOT HAPPY!

                On Sunday Tanya and Jeff had Brenden, Ethan, Zayne, and Tristan in bed by 6. We then had crab, Carona, and watched the movie "Taken" on pay per view. What a great date night!

                Four Little Men

                Hi everyone! Here's our latest update. It was certaily warm here today in Richmond and the whole family visited our neighborhood park this morning. Brenden did great taking care of his brothers. Ethan, Zayne, and Tristan were elated to be on the playground, soccer field, and playing with mulch.

                We had some awesome photos taken of the all the kids and they turned out great. We had a gift card and a coupon so it went from an impromptu kind of thing to an amazing photo finish!
