Today is Carl's birthday!! (31!!!) Thanks to Grammy & Papaw for coming this past Friday night to keep the boys, we actually got to go OUT and celebrate!!! We enjoyed a wonderful meal at Strawberry Cafe and then went to the Madison movie theatre (which was the FIRST time we had ever been there... how sad is that!!) and saw 4 Christmases. We had a great time. Nan made Carl his favorite cake.. homemade german chocolate! So, happy birthday to my best friend in the whole world and the best daddy in the whole world!!
Carl & his boys


2008 was a very memorable year for the Sandbergs. Some good...some not so good! We found out that we'd be adding TWO more boys to the mix, making us, "Sandberg, party of 5!" Carl and I both turned 30 and had 3 boys ages 3 and under. and when the twins decided to come 9 weeks early... well, the rest of the year was mostly about them!! We tried to do as many things with Drew as we possibly could, although there were no beach trips, or other fun vacations! Drew turned 3 in October and has really taken to the big brother role. I stole this idea from the Crawfords... but here are a few of our memorable moments from 2008!!

Christmas 2008

We had such a great Christmas this year. It was SO much fun to watch Drew's excitement and innocence! He was hilarious sprinkling reindeer food on the lawn and shouting into the night "reindeer, santa claus... COME SEE US!!!" He was so glad to see that Santa had eaten all of his cookies and drank all of his milk! We spent most of Christmas week at my parents' house and then Sat/Sun after Christmas at Carls' parents' house. Fun times were had by all!! Drew is just having a hard time understanding that Christmas is over. He saw a toy on TV this week and said "Mommy, I want this for Christmas!" And he still can't seem to understand why Elf (our Elf on the Shelf) isn't here anymore. The slide show below begins with Drew in his Christmas program at school. The younger 3's just had a small role... singing the chorus of "O, Come All Ye Faithful" at the end of the play. Well, Drew was not going to have any part of it. He didn't cry, he just didn't participate! He was way too interested in what was going on behind him
