It's Christmastime---that time of year when we attempt to be clever and create cards to send to friends and family with photos and updates on our year. This year, we have been blessed to have the support of many people, many of which we will never meet. Since there is no way to reach all of you via the regular postal mail, I am instead posting a "virtual Christmas Card". Thank you for all your prayers, love and support and have a Merry Christmas!!!
Twas 2007 in the Wilkinson home,
A crazier year we have never known.
We started the year by selling our house,
Then went off to Disney to see Mickey Mouse.
On Jan 23rd life turned upside down,
We went to the doctor, couldn't believe what he found.
"You're expecting!" he said, "...and it's going to be QUINTS!"
And our lives have not been quite the same since.
We searched for a doctor to find the best,
Which led us to Phoenix and four months of bedrest.
We stayed near in Gilbert with Rachelle's Aunt Jeanie,
And good Uncle Rick, (who isn't a meanie.)
Meanwhile in Austin our new house was done!
But without all the help, it would not have been fun.
They cleaned and they painted, they worked without rest!
Yes, our family and friends are really the best.
Five babies were born at the end of July
At 34 weeks, their weights were quite high.
Kassidy, Kaydence and Rustin were first,
Then Kyndall and Ryder had their birth.
We moved back to Austin on September one
The life we call "normal" is really quite fun!
They're all doing well and growing up fast.
It's hard to believe how much time has passed.
Riley and Kaiya have been champs all through.
They both love to help, and know just what to do.
Riley's in second grade and at a new school,
He really likes reading and thinks LEGOs are cool.
He made a short "film" for the Reflections Contest,
The judges agreed that his was the best!
