Playing in the Snow

My cold boys all smiling and having fun

So we have been getting pretty good snow lately and I have really been trying to keep up on the driveway and not let the ice and stuff get out of hand. So my thought was while I was doing that (and the boys cant go to the park right now) I might as well let them come out and play in the yard. It turned out to be so much more fun then I though so I think we are going to try things like that more often.

Putting the cookies out.

Merry Christmas eve and goodnight mommy.

So to day is Christmas and I was not really expecting a good day, I was just going to deal with whatever came.
We did have the boys put out some cookies and milk for "Santa". They were so sweet they wanted to make sure that he would see them and be able to get at them. So then I was up until 5 in the morning making breakfast casserole, finishing wrapping, and getting the presents arranged so that it looked like Santa came. So then at 8 o'clock we had boys jumping on my bed chomping at the bit to open the present and some of them were even wrapped in CARS paper. After opening presents and breakfast casserole the boys promptly went to bed. Then while we were trying to get some quiet time in our basement bathroom flooded. So no quiet time for mommy and daddy! Then we got ready and went to some friends house. After visiting some friend and spending quality time it really started to feel like Christmas. All in all it really did end up to be a good Christmas. We love our friends and family and we love seeing our boys so very happy. Thank you to everyone for your gifts and warm wishes and please have a very safe and Merry Christmas and safe and Happy New Year.

So very very long

So since it has been I will just do a quickie posting to catch up on everything. Things have been so up and down the last few month. Jimmy is dealing with all this crap from work, I am trying to get better and just push through any pain and the boys are amazing as usual. Xander is hitting the terrible 3's early and heaven help us. I swear that little boys can not sit still, or go anywhere without touching everything and having a fit at least once to twice a day. The mornings are great but then after that very short afternoon nap the furry arrives and doesnt stop until he goes down. I think that part of it is that he is bored. It is so hard for the little ones in the winter. We cant go to the park and we don't really have a lot of money to go to the rec center all the time so it is hard finding new things to do everyday that will peak his interest. I think I am going to go to the library and find some activity books for him. He is watching the My Baby Can Read DVDs and we do the flash cards and he really likes those and his vocabulary is really getting better fast. Maddox is wonderful I remember Xander at this age he was wonderful too and I know that Maddox will change and morph into this thing too. Maddy says all kinds of things and I know that its beacuse of the My Baby Can Read DVD's too. They grow so fast and we are all looking forward to the Christmas season. There is so much more but for now thats all.
