Cleaning and scrubbing will wait ’till tomorrow, but children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow. So quiet down cobwebs! Dust go to sleep! I’m rocking my baby. Babies don’t keep. – Ruth Hamilton

Fa La La #$%&

My title might be a little dramatic, but I'm going to chalk this past Saturday as our WORST outing as a family.  We are used to drama, fits, Lincoln running away, and the fast pace.  Having three this close in age hasn't stopped us from doing what we want as a family (except restaurants-those are on hold with Lincoln).  Don't get me wrong, I love having three kids, but the truth is that third kid is a GAME CHANGER!
 Everyone is looking cute right?
 Then all hell broke out!
 Mark and I were excited.  We were trying a new farm, it was a beautiful day, and everyone was healthy.  We didn't take into count that Lincoln has discovered he can also escape from his crib.  This in turn, doesn't allow him or Mack to sleep well.  AND then decided it would be fun to include Avery into this madness of waking up early.
 No one would take a family picture.  Here we are posing in front of our tree...
 Or we thought.  Nope we decided it wasn't right, but at this point we were done and ready to leave.  Therefore we don't have any pictures of us in front of our actual tree.
 Someone was always crying, refusing to walk, or wanting to be carried!

 It was a little better once we pumped some hot chocolate into them.

 After naps is when I take everything away I just wrote!  They woke up and we were able to have the best evening together as a family.  Christmas music was on, the kids participated, and they were all happy!

 Three is a lot.  It's completely different not being equal, but you know what?  I can complain all I want.  At the end of the day when we are at home together, we are so happy and feel blessed to have these three beautiful babies by our sides. 
 Who's excited to be a Watson?  These two are!!!!
The Christmas season is in full swing at our house!  Cheers to more nights like this!
