Thank You

Shannon and I after Matt and Joy gave us the gift.

Dear Friends and Family,

Some of you know that a group of our close friends from Church in the Valley recently organized a fundraiser for our triplets. They wanted to help with cost of formula and diapers and called the fundraiser "Feed 3G" (see the link for the website: Well, several nights ago our good friends Matt and Joy gave us the gift from this fundraiser. All we could say is "Wow."

Shannon and I were completely floored. We're humbled by your generosity and so very grateful for your kindness to our family. It's been a very expensive year for us, and this gift comes at an incredibly helpful time. It alleviates the financial strain, and it literally does help feed "3G." Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We take this gift, and your generosity, very seriously. We recognize the trust you've placed in us by donating this money, and we're committed to faithfully using this gift to help take care of our family.

The donations on the WePay website were anonymous and we're not able to individually thank everyone. If you donated, we can't express our gratefulness enough. We thank God for your generosity, we appreciate your kindness, and we love you guys.

Thank you again.

With Love,

Thomas and Shannon

All Smiles

All three of our triplets have started to smile. It's such a joy to see!

Shan texted this picture to me while I was at work. It made my day. Avery girl smiling at Mom.

Luckiest Man Alive

I took this last night as Shan was holding Avery and Graham (Gray was already asleep in his crib after his feed.) I thank God for moments like these with my family.

We've really loved getting to see more and more of the babies' personalities over the past few weeks. Avery seems to be uber relational, and any time there's someone remotely close to her she locks on to them with a laser-focused stare (in this case you can see it was Shan :) She could win any staring contest hands-down!

The boys on the other hand, well, they seem less concerned with relationships and more interested in food! Shan captured it best when she said, "Gray isn't interested in his siblings because they aren't edible!"

It may be years away, but I'm already looking forward to Double-Double Saturdays with them at In 'n Out :)
