Birthday Celebration - Round II

So, on Sunday afternoon we had present-time at Grandad and Gramma's house. They were all excited about opening their presents (especially Cate). From dresses to easels and movies to puzzles, there were plenty of gifts to be opened by each of the kids.

Birthday Celebration - Round I

We started celebrating the triplets' 3rd birthday this past weekend. Their Uncle Dale and Aunt Janet were kind enough to allow our "cupcake fest" to enter their home. And so, we kicked off the big Birthday Week with a joint celebration of Uncle Dale's, Aunt Leeann's, Cate's, Eve's, and Jonah's respective birthdays.
Here, the aforementioned cupcakes await extinguishing

Photo Shoot - Year Three

We brought the kids to Penney's for their (now) annual photo session and it went pretty well. Eve still needed to be bribed for smiles toward the end, and they were more interested in smiling at each other than smiling at the camera. Despite these minor setbacks, we came away with a few decent shots (I think).
So, here is a low quality collage of some of the better shots that were taken. You should be able to click on the collage for a larger view. Be warned...the image become grainier and grainier the larger it gets. Enjoy!
