Great Grandparents!

Jesse's Grandma and Grandpa Schrock were able to come over for lunch at the Chupp's on Monday. We always love for the boys to get to spend time with all of their Grandparents and Great Grandparents and take part in their family's heritage.

Rub-a-dub-dub, Four boys in a tub!

We couldn't pass up the opportunity! 4 little boys in need of a bath + 1 big bath tub = 1 great picture opportunity!

All the Chupp Cousins!

For the first time since Anna Grace Chupp was born (the first girl cousin), all the Chupp cousins were under one roof.

It was so much fun having all the cousins together and watching them play so well. I hope it isn't to long until it happens again!

Quick Update!

We made it to Indiana safely and are having a great time. Our flight here was not great. Actually, it was the worst yet. To start, we missed our flight! Who knew the airport would be so busy two days before Christmas!? Not the Chupps that's for sure! When we finally got on a plane we had to give up one of our three seats and both sit with a baby on our lap. This meant that we had to be separated since you can't have two lap babies in one row. So, Jesse and I were about 10 rows apart and both ended up sitting next to closter phobic women! The one Jesse was sitting next to didn't last 10 seconds. He ended up sitting next to a 7 year old girl who was a tremendous help. Even still, the boys screamed most of the time! But, we are here and have had a terrific trip so far.
Here is how we ended up maneuvering through the airport. It's amazing how crafty you get.

There hasn't been much of any snow so far but we did finally get to play in some snow this morning!

My mom has a Patty doll that she has had since she was about 7 I think. She is special because she is the size of a normal 3 year old girl and was popular because you could dress her in regular clothes. The boys weren't sure what to think of her at first but now they are fighting over which one gets to claim her as their girlfriend!

Here are some of my favorite pictures so far:

Something's Missing!

SNOW! Well, maybe there is more than one thing missing!
We are so excited to go to Indiana for Christmas! We are pray, wishing, and hoping for snow and have gotten everything we need to stay warm while we build our snowman and go sledding. We got the boys some snow boots and they want to have them on all the time. This was right before they got into the bathtub and they insisted on keeping them on until the last second.  Keep your fingers crossed for us for snow!

We've Been Elfed!

I hope this works for you all. It's pretty cute!  Be sure to turn up your volume.

And then, there was a belly!

I am fortunate enough to get to see my sister just about every weekend and am blessed to be able to live down the street from her, my brother-in-law, Robert, and my wonderful niece, Lauren. It has been the best experience of my life these past 5 years getting to watch Lauren grow up, getting to have them around while I grew as big as a house with the boys, and now getting to see her pregnant. And, lately, it has been so much fun seeing them on the weekends because Jennifer's little belly gets bigger and bigger every week.

This past weekend we went over to their house to see their Christmas decorations. James and Jack LOVE being over there so that they can play with Lauren and see their Aunt and Uncle!

Jack LOVED watching Lauren on the computer. She is really very patient with them and is a great cousin. She has also started picking them up more which is a little scary at times :)!
