The inspiration of a trophy ribbon winner!

I have been finding so much inspiration in trophy ribbons.  They've got my mind going for some future projects.  Well today I met up with one of my biggest inspirations and wished I had made her a special trophy ribbon all for herself.  She really deserves one.

Here she is.  This is a friend who moved to Austin, TX had a couple of kids then found out she was having quintuplets.  Then she came to AZ to have them here @ the same time I was having the triplets.  She holds the record for the heaviest quintuplet.  There were so many times that I kept on a truckin because I would think of her.  Well today we got our kids together for the first time.  Imagine eight 2 year olds running around.  Good times!  We even took them out to have lunch.  Yes we had help.  More pics & documentation on the family blog.  I'll get to sending the invites out here hopefully soon.

as far as the ribbons...beautiful. love the all white room with the beautiful headboard, huge frames behind it, and all those glorious ribbons. the purse is the sweetest thing, too!

are you exhausted? So fun! Love you!

Quite the sight. Did you charge the viewers at the restaurant or were you generous, handing out free admission tickets to the circus? What a treat to have lunch and entertainment. I would have paid extra for that one. That's a good two for one.

Hey, we might be on to something. You could approach each restaurant that you want to dine at, explain to them how you could increase their business for the day and then ask for free lunch. It's a pretty good deal for them if you ask me. :)
Go super Rachelle and Chrissy!

Dear Christina-
My name is Lori Zenger. I live in Windsor, CO. with my husband and four children ages 14, 11, 8,and 3. I was introduced to your fabulous blog through a link on my cousins Jaycen and Rachelle Wilkinsons' sight. I've checked in a couple times since then and just wanted to let you know that I think you're a great inspiration. It probably seems a bit strange to realize that you have such influence on people you haven't even met! It was fun to see the pictures of your little get together with the quints. You and Rachelle are both amazing to me. As long as you're passing out trophy ribbons...you should gift one to yourself! :-) Your blog is creative and clever...and you have a darling family. I'm sure there's never a dull moment in your home! Thanks for sharing your creative talent with mom's like me...I'd like to think we have similar taste...I love thrifting too! You're just a lot classier than myself! HA! HA! I would love to follow your new blog as well if you're willing to add a complete stranger. It's nice meeting you unofficially! Sincerely, Lori

Saw your last post about going private was full so I'm commenting here...hope you don't mind. I've been silently following your blog for a little while - I'm another MoM (triplets) and I love reading about your family. I'd love to keep up with you if you have room for one more :) darcyrv@gmail.com
