Cael's Christmas Program

Cael loves to sing Christmas caroles and he was more than ready for the program at the daycare last week. I know, I know, I do not have the cutest holiday shirt on him. I had planned to take him another shirt to change into and forgot. :( He is cute anyway!

So much to be thankful for..

Mark's birthday was 11/10... he turned the big 33!

We went to Red Robin for dinner. Say cheese!

Emmett was being a little camera shy.

'Happy Birthday to Daddy...'

Chocolate fudge cake is yummy!

Ew! Gross! I love you, you sexy man you! :)

My mom and dad came out for Thanksgiving which was AWESOME!

Emmett was quite taken with Dziedze. He wasn't so sure about Beesha but loved him some Dziedze.

We went to the mall with Beesha and Dziedze. The boys played on the inside playground and we enjoyed some ice cream.


I scream, we scream, we all scream for ice cream!

Oh, and we found the cutest hats for the boys. These guys have big heads (95+percentile) so it took some shopping around.

Emmett is Captain America.

Cael is Spiderman.

Dziedze showed Mark how to prepare the turkey... it was our first time making a turkey. We typically make ham but not this time.

Ah, love the Beesha!

What a beautiful turkey!

'This is the moistest turkey I've ever eaten,' said Dziedze.

Beesha helped me make some DELICIOUS mashed potatoes.

Cael wanted a picture taken of him too.

We took the boys to an inside play center. They ran and played until they were pooped.
There were cars, and balls,

and a huge jungle-gym with swinging bags, slides, tunnels, etc.

Cael was a wild man running through there. Pictured above he is doing his workout of kicking and punching. :)

Thank you Beesha and Dziedze for coming to Lincoln for Thanksgiving. I know it was cold some days but it was a lot of fun! We hope you enjoyed it too! We miss you bunches. Thanks for everything!

Yesterday was picture day a daycare. I stayed home with them in the morning, feeding them breakfast before going to school to keep them as neat as possible. Of course I took some of my own pictures.

Handsome! And check out my new kicks!

Emmett would not smile for anything.

This was about as good as it gets. Cheesers!

I took the boys to school and hung around until picture time. That was a big mistake. Emmett was extremely clingy and would not take pictures. He kept crying and getting up when the photographer was trying to take the pictures. Cael on the other hand hammed it up! His pictures should turn out really cute. We still need to take the boys to see Santa at the mall and take pictures. I am sure Emmett will cry then too... it is that age I guess.

Well, it snowed most of the day today. It started at about 9am and continued until 5pm or later. It is pretty... but it sure can be a mess.

We moved the toys into the basement for the boys. We had new carpet installed and Mark and I moved back upstairs... so now the boys have a new play area.

Halloween Pictures

I apologize for the delay in posting pictures of the boys.

They were super cute of course!

Cael was Green Latern and Emmett was a dragon!

We went to Trunk or Treat at the church.

Emmett mostly hung out on the tailgate with daddy.

When we walked around the neighborhood Emmett rode in style.

Cael was not afraid of some of the scary decorations and costumes.

I love this picture from behind... the little dragon with his wings being pulled in the wagon.

I hope you all enjoyed Halloween!

Pumpkin Patch Fun

This last Saturday we went to Roca Berry Farm's Pumpkin Patch with Cael's friend Logan and her parents. We had a blast!!!

Unfortunately it was a little overcast and drizzly, but we played and played.
Cael was super excited to play with Logan.
There was a 40 foot slide the kids loved to go down. I thought I'd take Emmett down it. Well at the top it was not the easiest to get me and him in at the same time... so the first time down Emmett went solo as he slipped down before I could get on behind him. :)

Cael and Logan were wild and crazy! :)

They loved going down and scaring each other, then race back to the top just to do it again.

Daddy took Emmett down the other slide which was a little bumpy.. and very slippery!

Emmett is fearless like his brother and loved it.

The boys had fun jumping into a pile of hay. Of course Emmett saw Cael and Logan doing it first and had to follow.

Cael was not afraid to jump as high as he could.

My little spider.. by the way Emmett loves his Michigan sweatshirt.. thanks Dziedze!

Now this was fun.. there is not picture of me but Logan's dad, Doug, and I got on here with the kids. It was so tempting to bouncing them all high but we restrained ourselves.:)

Of course they had to ride the ponies.


Emmett had his first pony ride. He was MAD when he had to get off.

We watched the pig races. Cael is good at calling them, 'souwee!'

That's my boys.. Wanted for being so darn adorable!

Cael wore himself to death running around and climbing on anything and everything.

Emmett was dancing to some music playing.. that boy hears a beat the just starts moving.

The kids had a great time and so did we.

Sunday night we carved one of the pumpkins. Mark and the boys did the messy part.

Emmett tried to help.

My sweet pumpkins.

The jack-o-lantern actually came out pretty good.. see the top of the page.

I'll be sure to post Halloween pictures.. I am excited for Halloween this year. I am dressing up for activities we have planned at work. I'll post pictures of me too. :)

Love you guys!
