Share The Fun

Chris and I were thinking about how being new parents has really shown us how wildly selfish we can be. We are often craving more sleep, more time to ourselves, more freedom, more money...the list goes on and on. Then, as we were watching our babies steal toys out of each others hands in order to keep them for themselves, we realized that we have either already instilled this awful character flaw in our children in under a year or we are all born with this. We'll blame it on the latter so we can selfishly feed our egos and still feel great about the fabulous parents we have come to be. Anyway, all of this prompted this video with a few of the fun 'sharing' moments around our household. I'm sure there will be many sequels to come, but we'll strive to teach that in our house you do as we say not as we do.

You both are fabulous parents - and I would venture to say that you have taught your kids how to love, and have fun.

Jennyg43 - Jaz is a Vizsla; a hungarian pointer. She is such a cool dog and always lets the babies pull on her; I'm sure she doesn't mind since they tend to feed her their food:) Great dogs, tons of energy!

Alaine - stop looking at our blog and enjoy Alaska!:)

I have a confession. Your blog has been showing up on my google reader for some time, but I've been ignoring it because...well...I'm already hooked on too many blogs. Anyway, two days ago I clicked your blog. Kid you not, I spent the ENTIRE DAY reading your ENTIRE blog. (please please please don't tell my husband that's why he had no clean underwear the next morning!) Anyway, this video is beyond adorable. Love the dog..I'm a breeder myself and with 3 dogs in the house, well they're like my kids. LOL

I have recently started creating photo cards after the birth of my little one. I had been ordering photo cards to send out to family and friends since he was born for all occasions, Easter, Christmas, Halloween, just because, and for any other reason that I could think of. I decided that I could make the cards myself and for others at lower price and offer customized cards for any occasions. Next thing I knew Mailable Memories was created.

Check out my website, I would love to create holiday cards or something for your Quads.

OK, I update my blog after our last activity (or drink) of the night and then I check yours and email- so I am getting plenty of Alaska Enjoyment Time. Finally got a good enough connection to enjoy the video - Makes me miss TX a bit-but I'm staying here till Monday. I laughed at the look on Cohen's face when you were speaking to him about pulling Sophia's bib. They are such amazing, special miracles of God! Lots of love-give 'em each a hug.

Love it! Even Jaz is getting in on the sharing action...well, at least the receiving end of it. Poor little Sophia's face was adorable...brothers!
