Welcome Spring!

Wow! I am SO glad it is finally spring!!! I feel like I say this every year but it really was a long winter:-( And I realize that I have so serious catching up do regarding the Callahan Crew since it has been since January that I last updated the blog! And yes, as you can imagine, a lot has happened since January...we had wonderful visits with close friends, watched Butler go the NCAA Championship again, played at the Children's Museum, moved into big kid beds, started speaking in complete sentances and celebrated Valentines Day, birthdays, Easter and Mothers Day (whew!). So hear are some pictures to catch you up on our last four months:

So I mentioned that the triplets moved into their "big" beds about a month ago. I was kind of nervous about this but they have done great! I kind of went all out with decorating their new rooms since I never did much with their nursery. I had someone paint butterflies for the girls and an airplane for Harry. Another lady, Mary, helped me with the rest of the decorating and the rooms turned out AMAZING! Here is the final product:
