Tuck loves his brothers' Skylanders action figures. He doesn't seem to know that they are for the Wii just yet.
Apparently, Allie was worried about doing her shopping in the kitchen the other day, so Will was protecting her.

Abbey tried really hard to get a great pic of Nash in his 100 Days shirt. He wouldn't stand still so Reed offered to help.

We would love to say that we are one of those hardball families that doesn't let their kids sleep in their bed, but we aren't. Almost every night, at least two of the cutest little ones end up in our bed. Truth is... We love cuddling as much as they do.

I remember it like it was yesterday. We got the call that you were our little boy and you had been born on February 16. We were so excited as we got that first picture of you. We didn't know anything about you at the time. All we knew was that we were staring at quite possibly the most beautiful face that we had ever seen. It was a sweet face with big almond shaped eyes and perfectly shaped lips. We loved you and nothing else mattered. It was like time stood still. We waited and waited for our chance to hold you in our arms, but from that first picture we were totally smitten.
You are growing too quickly. I'm proud to watch the man you are becoming, but sometimes I just want time to stop and let you sit in my lap a little longer. I love when you call me daddy and I love when you ask if you can just cuddle a while. I would never trade a moment of memories that I have with you. Thank you for being my son.
The boys were all so well-behaved. I truly did not expect for it to be such a calm evening. Everyone got along and they all used great manners. They even went to bed when I told them to. I hope that this wasn't just a trick to get us to let them do this more often and then they will act like total lunatics.
Although it was a sleepover, there was no way that Abbey was going to allow the party to be just a sleepover. It had to have a theme which was "Skylanders." Abbey planned games and activities and even had a color scheme.
The favorite activity was Skylanders' Bingo. They all really loved this game.

It's so hard to believe that our sweet Reed is 7 years old. He wanted to celebrate by eating lunch at Chuy's. He enjoyed a birthday Sopapilla.
Will took a long nap which means he isn't going to be anytime soon. The kid simply cannot take a nap.

Being the big brothers has it's perks. Tonight they got to take a bubble bath while the other brothers had to go to bed. They both claim to have best friends, but truth is we all know that they are best friends.

This pic isn't from today, but since we forgot our camera the other night, we had to wait for pics to appear on Facebook so that we could post this pic from our annual Chinese New Year celebration with our fellow Taiwan adoption friends.
At the Chinese New Year celebration, we bought a King cake in the silent auction. It was so good and full of calories. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

We had about the most snow we have had all year this morning when we woke up. We went to our annual Chinese New Year celebration with our Taiwan friends.
The boys went to their first dance at their school fundraiser. You can see that the boys really boogied down. Haha. They wouldn't get near the dance floor.

Life is busy, so Abbey is always thinking ahead. Tonight she got the boys to go ahead and work on their Valentine's for next week.
Tuck has learned that when he is going to scream his mom covers his mouth. So now, in anticipation of a temper tantrum, he just goes ahead and puts his hand over his mouth.

Some nights we read one book, but most nights we read several. Tonight was a several book night. Also, I'm thankful to see that I haven't been spared the Land man chinneck.

We went over to the Choate's home for their Super Bowl party. Will decided that he would wear Tuck's football PJs. In his defense they used to be Will's after they were Nash's, and after they were Reed's.

It was a beautiful day today. Tomorrow there is more snow in the forecast, so we took advantage of the great weather and played outside a much as we could.
