Picture overload

Sorry...we are having major computer troubles which is going to involve buying a new computer (EEEEEEEEEEK!), so I've been lazy about doing pics!!! And, I had the date wrong on my camera, too!!

At the park...


Right before the train debacle...


Getting ready to go try out our new snow boots (Thank you, Gramma Judy!!!)...



What a group!!


Don't let him escape!!!


Isaac



Jorden


With momma (please don't comment on my hair...I have no idea what was going on with it!!)


How we eat supper after a crazy day of being spoiled with the House's for Christmas...



Proof that I have changed my ways. Yes, you are seeing correctly...that is Play-Doh at my house!

Moments that take your breath away...

You're probably thinking this is going to be some sappy post. And, it might get that way, but that's not how it starts.

Yesterday, we took the boys to the mall to see Santa. We also put them on the train in the mall for them to ride. They were thrilled...they were on the train, eating candy canes and smiling super cute for anyone who would watch. They had gone around the track about 3 times. For some reason (ok, not just for some reason, but God's provision!), I walked along side them the next time around the track. Thank You, Lord, for prompting me...about halfway around the track, right at a corner where the train is super close to the fence, the boys' door swung open b/c the LOCK WAS BROKEN!. Isaac fell out and was under his train car while it was still moving! Without even thinking, a naughty word flew out of my mouth and I reached down and pulled him out from under the train while it continued to speed along. It all happened so fast, I can't really even remember the rest but I know pretty quickly Isaac was in my arms and safe.

Scary moments that take your breath away! We are SO very thankful that sweet and ornery little boy is just fine! Made momma cry more than Isaac!

Explanation...

Bet you were wondering why all this frigid weather is headed our way. It's because little Miss I-Don't-Participate-Very-Much-In-Christmas-Activities put her Christmas cards in the mail, has all her shopping done AND all the presents wrapped. Christmas truly is a season of miracles, eh?

What to do on cold, boring winter days (and it's not even technically winter yet!)

Momma only THOUGHT she could keep us separated by changing the room. She's not willing to admit we can outsmart her already!


Jorden: Hmmm, I wonder...


Oh ya!!




Isaac: Oh man! I can't believe I didn't think of this!


Isaac: Yes!
Jorden: Big deal, I already did that.

Changing my ways...

In the past, I've been accused of being a little bit of a Scrooge as I really dislike decorating for Christmas. In fact, for the most part, I just flat refused to do it. But, after MUCH pressure to do something "for the boys" this year, I conceded. We even beat my mom on getting decorations up!!

Exhibit A

Exhibit B


Exhibit C


Exhibit D


Exhibit E

***Wow, we are just really over the top with our decorations, wouldn't you say??***


We may not agree (AT ALL!!!) with KSU's recent hiring decision, but we're still gonna show them some love.


And, I suppose we are willing to kiss...


and make up!


Um, this is how we found the twinks on Thanksgiving morning...notice in the SAME bed (you could probably guess it is Jorden's crib as he appears less than thrilled with the notion that his brother can get in!). We have rearranged the room and will provide a memo to its tenants that they will NOT be leaving their cribs for big boy beds any time soon!


Thanksgiving Day




Jorden and cousin Ashton are wondering if Isaac does not know how to eat with a utensil.


And, obviously, the answer to that question is NO!
