Happy birthday to Amy!!!
Twenty nine years ago today I gave birth to my daughter Amy.....which means today is her birthday...........and the day she gave birth to her three daughters!!! What a day it was!!! Hailey, Olivia, and Emma arrived this morning safe and sound!!

Statistics are as follows:
7:56 am Hailey Ann 5lbs 5oz 18.5"
7:57 am Emma Jo 4lbs 14oz 18"
7:58 am Olivia Marie 5lbs 3oz 18.5"

It was just amazing to get to see them lined up......all together but all different!!

Hailey has dark hair and is a go getter.....Emma is sweet and petite.....and Olivia is pretty mellow but a picky eater so far!! Amy is amazing.....she was 37 weeks and had no complications in her pregnancy at all.....the doctors said she could be a poster child for triplets!!! Already her mommy instincts have just kicked right in!!! So far it looks like they might ALL get to go home on Sunday or Monday!

As for me I got to go right into the nursery and see the girls and get some photos minutes after they were born.....I got to spend time rocking them.....and I even got to change a diaper already!!!

Papi's do what Papi's do best...a PROUD baby holder....but NO DIAPER CHANGING!!

I want to thank everyone who kept us in their thoughts and prayers during the last few months!!! WE truly appreciate your love and support!!!
It was a GREAT birthday celebration although we had NO CAKE.....but since Amy does not like cake anyway guess it does not matter!!! LOL

Today I got to spend the day with Addison who is growing up way too fast!! It was my last day with her as my ONLY granddaughter!!! She spent the night and then we were off to a tea party with a friend and her granddaughter!! It was so much fun!!! Addison was really into her tea!!!

The count down is on......
It's November and the year is almost over....


it's almost time for the triplets to be born!!!
Amy is doing amazing!! She is in week 34!!
Her doctor's say she should be a poster child for Triplets!!!
I am so proud of her and am getting so excited to see the girls (Olivia, Hailey, and Emma)!!

As of today there is not an actual date scheduled for the delivery but they are thinking maybe November 18th would be a good day!! The 17th is DH Jeff's birthday and the 19th is DD Amy's birthday!!

This is a picture of Amy today!! She is allowed to go out to church on Sunday and to her weekly 3 doctor appointments. It won't be long for updates and delivery news!
I have been busy dying lots of wool for Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe and teaching a few classes!! Once a month I teach a WOOLY WEDNESDAY class at the much fun and such wonderful ladies!!

Addison is growing up so fast.....She spends a couple of days a week with me and we have so much fun!!
She loved her first ride on a pony!!
She was the cutest Minnie Mouse for Halloween and had a fun time trick or treating.....we got to tag along and enjoy the fun.....after a couple of houses we came upon one where the homeowner was dressed in costume....which Addison was not to sure of.....and as we walked away she said I want to go home now!!! She said....Mommy with give me candy!!! She is so fun to be around and watch grow up....just wish she would not do it so fast!!!

Happy November!!!
