Everyone was excited to open Christmas gifts this morning, and we were quite thankful the kids had gone back to sleep until 6:30am. We're not sure how many more years we can convince them to stay in bed on Christmas morning.
Arthur was quite excited to play with his new marble game, and the girls loved dressing up in their new butterfly wings.
And then we played outside in the snow, glad to have a white Christmas.

Grandma and Grandpa stopped by today to exchange Christmas presents with us.
The kids were most excited by their new dolls, which look like them. Coraline decided she and her doll needed pig tails today.
And then kids decided on names for their dolls - Paul Bunyan, Frosty the Snowman, and Sugarplum.

The other day we had our first big snow storm for the season. Erin's had a few cancelled school days, and the kids have had delayed openings all week. It wasn't quite enough to make snowmen out of, but everyone loved collecting icicles to suck on and snow chunks to throw.

Arthur surprised us today by deciding to learn how to write his name. I had been trying to get him to learn this for months, but he insisted just "A" was good enough for him. We still have to remind him which letters come next, but he is doing a great job putting them in order!

We took the kids to the Richmond Science Center, and they loved exploring lots of different science investigations. One of their favorites was the mirror room, where each of their images were multiplied by five. They were fascinated by it, but for parents that already have triplets, we thought it was a bit disturbing.

We went up to Aunt Em's and Uncle Eric's house for Thanksgiving. We were quite proud of actually getting a group photo of everyone, which we hadn't done since before the triplets were born.
Everyone had tons of fun, and it was great to see Emily and Eric since we probably won't see them again before they head back to China for a few more years.

We've been taking so much about Thanksgiving that the kids decided to have a feast of their own. They took a blanket, and put it across the coffee table (it was lumpy, since they didn't remove all the books that were already on the table). They pulled up chairs, set the table with their snack bowls and water cups, and then invited everyone to the party.

We drove up to Maryland to trick-or-treat with the triplets' cousins. With Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger, Piglet, and a ghost, it looked like the kids were a haunted version of the Hundred Acre Woods.
The kids got so much candy that we had to help them carry their buckets home. Afterwards, they got to choose the five pieces that they were going to keep.

We went to the Rally to Restore Sanity in DC today with Aunt Heather and the cousins. The train was amazingly crowded, but the kids did surprisingly well.
After looking at all the crazy people in costumes, and trying to hear bits of the rally itself, eventually we all got tired and headed home.
