Lots of reasons to celebrate

                          
One year ago just after 6 a.m. we welcomed Brett, Jackson & Peyton into the world. It's hard to believe they are 1 already. We survived our first year! We gathered today to celebrate. It was a busy day and the boys were a little overwhelmed at first but by the time they had their cake they were good to go.

Auntie Kerry made individual cakes for each of the boys (no small feat since they have some food allergies and she had to use lots of special ingredients - who knew you could make a cake without dairy products?) 
We sang Happy Birthday to each boy individually. They weren't sure what to make of the cakes at first but really enjoyed them once they got started. Jackson was by far the most adventurous and seemed to feed off the attention. There are no shortage of photos capturing the hilarity - It looked like a room full of paparazzi!

Since the boys were born we have continually been overwhelmed by people's kindness and generosity. That same feeling continued today. We feel so blessed to have such amazing friends and family and are so glad the boys are surrounded by such amazing people - and many more across the miles.
A special thanks to two other triplet Mommies - Jennifer for passing decorations, shirts etc. on from her boys' birthdays 2 months ago and her sister Kelli for making their smash cake T-shirts that say 'I'm 1' so they didn't mess up their birthday clothes!
Today even more than usual we give thanks - God is good!
