Silly Boys

Santa brought Jacob a pair of headphones to wear in the car when we travel.

They are from the movie Cars, the end resembles a gas nozzle so he immediately grabbed a car and pretended to 'fill 'er up!"

And out of the blue one day, Levi started 'cheesing' like this

He makes me smile, that one :)
{his hair is crazy long.  time for a trim!}

Christmas Recap

Jacob came into our room around 7am Christmas morning proclaiming, "Santa was here!!!"
He was so excited!!!  

After opening every gift, he would say, "thank you Santa!"   :)

Levi is at the age where he loves all things Elmo.  So cute!

He also enjoyed walking around the house shaking these m&ms :)

After presents, we had a north pole breakfast :)
{i just made that up, ha!}

I don't normally buy powdered donuts, so Jacob was excited :)

Levi was excited too :)

Sucha big boy!

I'd say they were a hit!

Mmmmm good stuff!

I got this big Buzz at a thrift store for $4.  One trip through the washer/dryer and as good as new!
Jacob has slept with him every night! :)

Jacob brought home this bag a couple of weeks ago from school and told us we couldn't open it until Christmas.

Inside were these sweet ornaments.  I asked Jacob to write his name on them.
I love the 'b' all lonesome on the angel :)

We had a wonderful Christmas!  After the kids opened their gifts and we ate breakfast, we got ready and went to the Christmas service at church.  Then back to mom's for leftovers.  :)

The next day something got into me and when Levi went down for his afternoon nap, we took down the tree and all the decorations.  I have never done it that early before, but I was ready to have the house back.  

Now bring on 2012! :)

Christmas Eve Recap

My parents came up here for Christmas so we celebrated with them Christmas Eve.

Sweet Lukey giving his momma sugars

All the kids had so much fun opening gifts, even Levi

They each helped one another

I loved seeing their excitement

Thanking each other, so sweet :)

Luke showing Levi his new toy :)

My new cake pop pan!  I love it!  You know I love my 'as seen on tv' products :)
Jacob is showing me his favorite :)

Papaw (my dad) laughing so hard because he couldn't figure out what his present was... handkerchiefs :)

My handyman and his new, longer level :)

Our traditional Christmas hat photo :)

On our way home, I snapped this photo of someone's front window :)

Before going to bed, we left cookies & milk for Santa :)
And ended the night reading "The Night Before Christmas" :)

Up next, a visit from Santa! :)

Getting Close

I can't believe Christmas is only 3 days away.  How is that possible?  
I have not wrapped one gift.  I should have done it while Jacob was still in school, but I didn't. 
Now I will have to wait until he goes to bed.  

It's going to be so much fun watching him open his gifts.  Last year was the first time he really got into it, but this year I think he will explode with excitement. :)

This is Levi's new thing :)

One day I will probably find him naked :)

Henry is glad Christmas is near.

He's starting to run out of ideas!  ha!
p.s.  have you ever tried writing on toilet paper?  not easy.

Christmas Program

We woke up today finding Henry having fun!  :)

It was also Jacob's Christmas Program at school.
Weren't we just at the Thanksgiving one??

I hate that this picture is dark, but I thought it was so sweet they were holding hands walking in.

"Silent Night"  

Daydreaming :)

"Feliz Navidad"

Thank you Meme for watching Levi while I took pictures and Kris videotaped :)

We ended the day lining up every stuffed animal we own and tucking them in their spot :)
