We had 21 at our house on Christmas Day...I learned a quick come-back from someone in my local "multiples club". When a stranger gives you unsolicited comments about your family and says something similar to "I bet you have a full house" you can always answer..."I'd rather have it full, than empty!" That described our day!
Christmas Eve--Things To D0....wrap presents (check), leave out cookies for Santa (check), disrupt the church service (check), wake up early in the a.m. (check)....Gosh, we are SOOOOO busy!

We give out kisses regularly now...a trick that never gets old, similar to showing off our dance moves. Here's Lilly laying one on Aunt Cat.
Addy & Lilly have such wonderful family who get them such thoughtful gifts. They are spoiled to the core, but do display signs of appreciation and thankfulness. As soon as this wears off, Jeremy swears they will be playing with cardboard boxes (which they seem infinitely thrilled with as well). Here are some of their favorite gifts from Christmas 2008....
"Okay, Addy, you and your baby follow me and try and keep up this time going around the kitchen table, okay?"--Lilly (always needing things her way, with new dolls, a pram and stroller)
Our first coupe arrived here, but our mom quickly realized that sharing a toy as cool as this was only going to last so long, so here we are in our first parade! (so we are already good at follow-the-leader, eh?)
"A kitchen that's all our own...if only we could figure out how to make macaroni and cheese."
Our first potty! Mommy & Daddy decided this truly was the gift that keeps on giving (if it get us out of diapers!). Notice, Lilly is sitting on it while using her cell phone from the new kitchen. Who did she learn this from?
"Wait, Elmo doesn't live inside our TV?"
