I noticed Traci has fallen behind on here posts lately. So I thought I would give her a post for being such a wonderful person and very under appreciated and unfortunately taken for granted too often. From a guy who grew up with all men and an amazing mother, I am determined to make sure they know to how to show their appreciation for everything Traci does for us. I'm good at my own things but I know that Tripp & Tucker would not be overcoming obstacles and improving everyday, without my amazing wife there to help them. Here determination, drive and love for the boys will never be matched by anyone else ever in their lives, and they are very lucky for that. Any wife they might have in the far future will have some very large shoes to fill, and I pray they find someone who can (like I did). My mom did the same for me, and I am blessed to have found a woman like Traci who could fill her shoes. I thank God for the two amazing women he has put in my life. Love you Traci.
We had a nice low key valentine's day! The day started with several visitors stopping by to spoil our boys! They even had cupcakes and m&m's for breakfast;) We met some good friends for lunch and a play date at chick fil a, then came home to play outside and take naps:) afterwards I prepared a special dinner for my boys and coach too! I made heart shaped turkey meatoaf, veggies and homemade mac'n'cheese:) for dessert a heart shaped cookie cake (Carl's fave). We enjoyed te beautiful weather and had a nice family dinner! Cannot think of a better way to spend my valentine's evening than with my 3 guys:) here are a few pics:)
Coach playing with the boys after dinner, such a special bond:)
My hubby and parents know me well;)
On to a tucker update. Tuck has been doing so great!! However the past couple of weeks he has been waking up crying and telling me his tummy hurts. My inclination is that his inflammation is back or worse:/ we had an appointment set up to see our GI on March 6th but I called and filled them in and they were able to work us in this morning. After an examination, some talking and some new meds she set up his fourth endoscopy and 2nd colonoscopy for March 11th. That is the only way we will know about the inflammation for sure. He also had to get blood taken so they could make sure his hemoglobin levels were good. So after a quiet (and much needed) few months we are back in the swing of things again. Hoping and praying for some answers in this new year. The results of the genetics test should be in sometime in the next couple of months. So that is it for now. Please pray for our sweet tuck, pray for relief and pray for some answers!! Thank you all!! Here are a few recent pics of my lil darlins'!

We love winter and are enjoying all the cold snuggle weather! The boys and I have been enjoying wrapping up in blankets and staying in our pjs all day;) However, although I have enjoyed having lazy pajama party days with my boys drinking lots of coffee and staying warm we are ready for spring! We are ready to play outside and wear our flip flops:) that being said we haven't been up to too much, a few fun play dates, a few trips to the doctor and hanging out with our cousins! Speaking of, my sister kelly and her family have finally moved back to spring!! We have been having lots of fun times with all the boys and I foresee a lot more in our future;) here are some recent pictures:)
