What's the Worst That Could Happen?

We wanted more children so we waited, unlucky, decided to adopt, we finished the paperwork, we're paper pregnant, and SURPRISE - we're also expecting biological twins. This blog is our life with three tots the same age and an older brother.

What does our house look like on Christmas Morning?
This actually looks clean. It got worse after this picture. We hadn't opened boxes before this was taken. It was pure chaos but so much fun.
Fun didn't start though until after we got downstairs. It took us a bit longer to get everyone down the steps this morning to see what Santa left behind thanks to Nate. Nate decided when he got up this morning to strip out of pajamas and take off a diaper full of poop. When I walked in he was sitting bare butt on the carpet with the diaper off in the distance and big pile of poop laying in the floor. Andrew is gagging while looking at the poop (Like Mother, Like Son). Poop is smeared on the walls, all over Nate and even on his face. He had to go straight to the bath tub. There was lots of screaming b/c Nate didn't want to take a bath, and Andrew DID want to take a bath and we weren't letting him in there. Then there was Logan screaming b/c we told him to wait on all of us before going downstairs and he didn't like that idea.
Eventually we made it downstairs and everyone was happy. Madelyn couldn't seem to rip paper off fast enough. I don't think she even looked at the presents. She was too excited about the paper coming off. Logan had a story to tell and had to talk about each present first before going to the next one. Nate was very slow and Andrew was even slower. Andrew started with candy and then made it to the bat and ball and didn't want to go further. He had been saying he wanted a bat and ball for two months now. When he got it, he wasn't letting go. He wouldn't open other presents b/c his hands couldn't come off the bat and ball.
The favorite toy for Madelyn was the vanity. She has painted her nails, put on lipstick and brushed her hair. She has pushed down her brothers to keep them from messing with her things. Nate and Andrew have really enjoyed the Batman shake n go race track. They have laughed so hard and jumped to the ceiling watching those cars go fast around the track. Logan is enjoying his new Wii games and Legos. He hasn't even made it around to trying out all his toys yet.
Tony and I are exhausted. Our house is a wreck. We had our usual Chinese take-out (and no we are not Jewish) but we started this tradition the first Christmas waiting on Madelyn's arrival and have continued it. I have plans to crash on the couch and veg-out out tonight. It's been a wonderful day. Merry Christmas!

Santa and Two Haircuts
My hairdresser told me last week Santa was visiting her Salon today so we dressed up the kids and went for a visit. The only one that told Santa what they wanted for Christmas was Madelyn and she said "choo choo". Nate gave a funny look to him the entire time. Andrew was just amazed. Logan whispered a few things but I couldn't hear anything he was saying to Santa.
We ended the visit with two haircuts - one for Logan and one for Nate. They were both past due.
