Its a Bird, its a Plane, its......the STEECE QUADS!

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that the Steeces were going to be a part of something big and exciting...

Well...take a good look...can you see it on the right?



How about now?...recognize these precious faces????



The STEECE QUADS are flying high in the sky over several different parts of DFW! (Ethan, Drew with the hat, Savannah, Ben peeking over)



I knew WITHOUT A DOUBT that we have the absolute BEST BLOG BUDDIES in the world, b/c I quickly began receiving comment after comment- telling me that you had seen our quads off the interstate! It cracked me up to no end. LOVE IT! You guys rock my socks off. It is fun to know that you get just as excited as I do to see my little ones up in the sky!


We are MORE than honored to be a part of an ad campaign for Texas Health (primarily Harris Methodist Fort Worth)...for you see---I feel that I owe my life and the lives of my kids to the amazing staff who took care of us while in the hospital. So every time I see those billboards, it is ONE BIG THANK YOU, HARRIS METHODIST!---for your professionalism, for supporting us, and for loving us during the most intense time of our lives!

There is more to come by way of our ad campaign print---but you'll have to wait until they "go live" & I get the "OK" to blog about it...but it is AWESOME! Such a talented group of people working on this. Oh, and since many of you have asked- we are on 3 different billboards:

1) University Dr. N/O Park Hill Dr.
2) I-30 W/O Sandy Lane
3) I-35 @ 4th Street

After leaving the zoo and doing a billboard-drive-by, I was so excited...turned around to show the kiddies...and found this:

Awww! I fall more in love with my kiddos with every passing day. LOVE how all of their heads are turned the exact same way. Sweet little guys.

Can't believe that they are about to turn TWO next week (and that we were able to keep their carseats rear facing for almost 2 years!--despite their crushed little legs--but they didn't know any different) As as far as plans for their bday party?...um...yah...bad Mommy. With Savannah's surgery, I just haven't had the time or energy to go all out like I did last year. We are going to keep it low key with a trip to Waco and a follow up party with the Steeces. Still, we are looking forward to some good times and starting the TWO's off with a BANG!

Congrats on the billboard! That is AWESOME!!! And WAY TO GO on extended rear-facing!! My little man is almost 22 months, and just about to outgrow the weight limit on his seat- the same seat as your kiddos are in. I am NOT ready to turn him!!

I am so bummed that I live in Dallas County, I may have to make a trip to the FW zoo with my kids just to see the billboards. They are very cute!

Oh wow! LOVE the billboard!! How cool! Though of you today...we were at the Waco zoo and it was sooooo hot. I think we'll wait for fall before we go again.

Seeing that billboard might be worth a trip down from Arkansas! Well...at least it might be a drive-by stop on the trip. God has truly blessed you with 4 wonderful kids. We do serve an awesome GOD!

Not in the USA to see them! But must be awesome driving by and seeing your little ones up there. Way to go.

Moni Graf said...

I'm SO excited to meet those little superstars later TODAY! Woop, woop!

They're not gonna know what to think about their crazy Aunt Moni from KS. I just hope they don't run crying away from me!

Love you all and congrats on the billboards.

Moni

Stacey said...

That's too awesome!! Hopefully the kids will be awake the next time you pass one. ;o)

Beav's Wife said...

Can we have one of those adorable billboards here in Richmond, VA? I'd love to drive by those sweet faces!!!!!

Kristin said...

How exciting! I bet your are just beaming with pride!! So cute!

Kati said...

How neat is that.

I have been lurking through your blog for some time.. and man your story intrigues me. You have an adorable family!

King Quads said...

They sure did pick the cutest little quaddies for that billboard!

I am sure it was emotional seeing your miracles up there in the sky like that. How cool for you!

Love you all!

Ethan, Drew, Ben and Savannah, can I have your autographs? How many people can say that their face has been on a billboard? Not too many, thank you. Congrats sweet babies. I can't imagine the hospital picking out any other children to do their advertisements. Can't wait to see more! I'll probably never get to see the billboards in person because I live way out in Denton County so I'm so happy your mama posted pictures of it!

Ashhog said...

SO cool Suz!!! I'm excited for you guys!!

Amy said...

What an awesome billboard!
And go you for keeping the kiddos rear facing for so long. My 21 month old is still rear facing, and I get some interesting comments about it. How are they doing with forward facing, did it take an adjustment?

Caroline said...

Been lurking for a while...I'm going to have to go hunt these down (I'm in Fort Worth)! So precious!

Katie said...

LOVE it!! That is so awesome!!

Karen K. said...

Congrats on the billboards. They are so cute and deserve to be up there! Love the pic of them sleeping in the car. Too cute.

Williams' bunch said...

Love the billboard...how neat is that? :-) I live in KY, so I won't be seeing it in person, but that is exciting!
They are so precious.

Caroline said...

Saw the billboard on University...so stinkin' cute! My mom and I loved it!!

Happy Campers said...

That is SO exciting!! Congrats :) I'll keep an eye out for it!

Penny said...

Love the billboard! You're not only famous in the blog world, now. =)
It's wonderful that you kept your kids facing backward for so long! You wouldn't believe how many turn it forward ON their child's first birthday--- no matter their weight. I've even seen a 9 month old facing forward! =(
Glad you're excited about them turning two. Most people don't look forward to that, but two is my FAVORITE age. I even wrote about that in a post about my 2 yr. old granddaughter! They're so funny and smart at that age--- I LOVE it! Don't believe the horror stories about the terrible two's. Yours will be fine!

Alissa said...

VERY cool! Congrats on your four famous faces....really adorable!

Susan @ Blessed Assurances said...

so I am a total blog stalker that has a mutual friend in common, she went to Harding with you, who told me to read your blog many years ago (before quads). Anyway I was driving in FW the other night heading to dinner with hubs when I saw the billboard and didn't realize it was you guys until we came up close and I saw Savannah. I told my husband that I knew you and your family in a round about way and he just I think he's poor head is still spinning trying to figure out the connection. my email is blessedassurances@gmail.com, I will be happy to share the mutual friend's name with you there.

Amy-Jo said...

Look at those cuties! You do have the most beautiful children. So happy I was able to meet you todat, wish we could have visited longer, but I wanted to be sure. Didn't think it was possible but they are more adorable in person. You Rock Momma!

Whitney Jodry said...

Suzanne - Thanks for allowing us to use your sweet family! You guys are a blessing and Texas Health Fort Worth is glad that you are part of our family!

Caroline said...

Ok, saw the one on 30 tonight as I was driving back from dinner in Dallas!!

Leslie C said...

Very cute billboard!

I'm sure those babies will be so excited for their birthday party- no matter what you do! NOT a bad mommy! A busy mommy!

Annie said...

They look awesome on the billboards. I like their picture sleeping, adorable.

Your babies share the same day of birth with me, so cool.

Have a nice weekend.

Misty said...

I think that is so cool! And your "pieces" are even cuter in person! Loved getting to see them two weekends in a row!!!!
Love you!!!!
I'm think me & the girls are going to have to take a road trip to see our friends up in the air!

Mom2Be09 said...

Congratulations! You have precious children. I have 3 weeks til my little guy arrives by c section ;) Sending prayers your way that each day brings you and your family many more great things!!!

Darron and Ashlie said...

Dont ever discount how great of a mommy you are!!! Especially for a birthday party. Besides, the people you really want at your party are your best friends and they will always have that. I am thankful you chose Texas Health Ft. Worth ~it made our paths cross and allowed me to take care of those sweet babies. Much love

(ps. you know I already love the billboard)

T.S. said...

LOVE the ad, so cute! I feel like it could be be an advertisement for trusting God, too! ;)

Karen said...

OMG, they look adorable!!! How cute.

Candace Hickey said...

Hey girl...that is the coolest thing ever! I know what you mean about the staff in the NICU....we are very appreciative of those who cared for our triplets....

We need to play!!

lauren said...

That is so cool, Suzanne!!! I would have freaked out if I had seen that before this post! I will look for it next time I'm up there!

Anonymous said...

Ahhh - I was just driving on University and saw the board. I couldn't believe it. (I hadn't seen your post yet). They look so cute! Congrats!!!!

Ms. M said...

I go to Ft. Worth once a year, maybe twice, and I happened to be going this weekend. I looked for the billboard and saw it twice! Your kids are so cute! So funny to see them up there. Have they seen it yet? What do they think?

Melanie said...

i don't live in the metroplex, but was there over the weekend. i kept my eyes open, looking for your babies. i was sad when it was time for us to head home and i hadn't gotten to see the billboard! i will be back in a few weeks and will look again then!

Liz said...

Yay! Thanks for blogging about the billboards! I've been waiting for you to announce it so I could learn the details. I drive to Ft Worth from Dallas to work at Cook :) and say hi to your sweeties everytime I see them up there! Love it!!

-Liz

Amazing Greis said...

LOVE the billboard. They are, as always, just too cute for words.

I saw your QUAD MOM friend, Jen Murray, in Chicago. Such a sweetie. Hope you're able to make it to BlogHer next year. I would love to meet you!!! (though, since we live in the same state, maybe I'll meet you IRL sooner than that. LOL)

Chris said...

I live right by the Sandy Lane board - was coming home Saturday afternoon and did a double-take -- okay, a quad take! I thought, OMG -- I know those kids -- drove back around to see it again. How totally fabulous! Love your blog......I don't have children (other than my Bichon Frise), but love the blogs.....have a wonderful day!

caroline said...

My girlfriend, who lives in Ft. Worth (I'm in Ohio), called me yesterday to tell me she drove past the billboard...this was before either of us saw your post about it. She had to stop herself from saying "I know them!" to her husband...we like to pretend we're best friends with you and your clan ;) Congrats, very exciting!

Saw the billboard just today on my way home f/ work @ Park Hill & University. LOVED IT!!! The children are beautiful!

BoufMom9 said...

I saw the photos on your FB, but have to say here that I just LOVE those billboards. FABULOUS!!

Jocelyn said...

Very cool about the billboards!

Lauren said...

this is so crazy because I am from the north (DC) and been following your blog for about 1 1/2 yrs when my then roommate told me about it because her sister in law (jessica moore) went to nursing school with you. Anyways-- been following your blog, I am in Fort Worth for one week taking a teacher training course and visiting friends and who do I see on the road?! YOUR KIDS!!! I stopped my friend (who was driving) in mid conversation and said, " I KNOW WHO THOSE KIDS ARE!!" small world and so crazy! congratulations.. its a WONDERFUL billboard!

glam R baby said...

THAT is SOOO cool...can't wait to see it around DFW!!!

XOXO

I have been following your blog right after you started it, so in some weird but not stalker-ish way, I feel like we are friends. Anyhow, I live in Keller and go to school in FW and some friends and I were going to eat lunch over in the TCU area and I saw the billboard with the quads and just blurted out, "Hey I know those quads!" And then had to explain how I wasn't crazy and yes I "knew" of you, but have never personally met you, they all laughed and said I was a crazy stalker. I thought it was funny enough to share. I know that the blogs I follow I feel so personally connected to so many of them, however for people who don't know what a blog is, they all call us crazy, I call us friends!

Matt and Tiffany said...

Hi! I live in the Ft. Worth area and saw this billboard the other day! I thought it was adorable! :) I enjoy your blog and your family is precious.
