Amongst the sickness and doctor visits, Dave and I have managed to get out of the house a little bit- thanks to some fantastic friends!! I went to the Nutcracker Market for the first time. It was fun and overwhelming, and a little embarrassing when my friend asked every booth "Do you give a sextuplets discount?" Although it did pay off once :) One lady was from Wyoming and knew all about me from the news- weird! And NO she did not give me a discount. Dave and I have also had separate movie dates with friends- I saw Twilight and he saw James Bond. I've never been to opening night before and the screaming girls were quite amusing! I really appreciate everyone who helps with the babies so we can get a break here and there; it's nice to miss them sometimes :)
2 major things that have happened recently.... baby dedication and first solids!
Our church does baby dedications twice a year, it's a casual deal, but something meaningful and important to me. As with all events, it took some special planning to have us there- like our secret hideout room, but it went smoothly. I wanted us to go last so we wouldn't steal any attention from the other babies being dedicated. No babies cried or vomited! Can't say the same for the adults. It was more of an emotional experience than we anticipated, reminded us of everything we've been through the past year.
