This is a nice shot of up my nose, but it still makes me laugh. I didn't know Kyle was taking it. It was pretty dark in Carterman's room...I guess my flash works well. My babies and I were cuddling.
I made spritz cookies! They actually turned out pretty well...probably not as good as Grandma Burgman's though. Something about this season or this pregnancy is making me bake. Kyle likes it!
This is the only shot I got of my monkeys at the Christmas stroll. We went up with Erica and Landon to check out Grandma's tree at the Festival of Trees. It was lovely. The kids favorite part was singing Jingle Bells to the two horses pulling a sleigh around Broadway Street!
You can't really tell, but she's hugging "Bumble" - the Abominable Snow Monster from Rudolph. She absolutely loves that thing. She carries him around, makes him sing to people, and wraps him up in her blanket!
Daddy was giving horsey-rides. The boys of course climbed on right away. They've got some cute little smiles!
Ave joined in on the fun too. I wish I could remember what Carter was pointing at. Knowing him, there were Decepticons or some other villians they had to go get!
Speaking of Decepticons, here's their sworn enemies! Carter has been so obsessed with Transformers lately. This new channel we got plays the old episodes, and they had a new miniseries. Optimus Prime and Bumblebee were ready to assemble!
This picture makes me laugh. Saturday morning cartoons, lounging on Dad, eating Froot Loops...what could be better?
Carter and Avery love Christmas decorations this year. Ave makes me say goodnight to our tree before bed every evening! This was "Carter's branch". He put four ornament balls, two ninja turtles, and a tractor all on one!
More baking! My girl helped me spoon out the dough for some oatmeal chocolate chip/peanut butter chip cookes. She actually was kind of helpful too!
Just another view. She's a cutie pie.
We went out to my friend Ritter's Wednesday night for Mason's 2nd birthday party. It was a good time had by all. Carter, Avery, and Landon were all quite charming out there. Here's Mason checking out some of his presents. He really loves cars and trucks!
Ave had a good time going through everything in his room. Auntie fixed her hair at daycare that day, and she looked smashing!
Landon/the Hulk really enjoyed the cake. He even ate more than just the frosting!
My two of course enjoyed their pieces also!
It was bath night when we got home (check out Ave's hair after those pigtails!). They quite enjoy bath time with the many Cars color change cars. I keep a bucket of cold water outside the tub for changing, and they play and play!
Our puppy got a lovely winter haircut. I think she's kind of enjoying it because everyone is petting her! Ave especially loves how soft she is now.
There used to be a band called the "Naked Brothers Band". Here is the "Naked Siblings Band". They were pretty great. Their rendition of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star was breathtaking!
More sledding! Yesterday was so nice. We had a ton of wet snow, 40 degree weather, and happy kids! We had a two hour adventure over at Clark's Park. This is a cute picture of Erica and Mr. Lando Commando.
This is kind of washed out, but still a cute family picture. It's hard to get one of us all together sometimes!
The boys will pile on whoever is next to go down the hill. Or they'll give someone a push and run down after them. They get their exercise!
My Boo Bear had lots of fun this time! Last time was a little chilly for her. She got tired towards the end, but it's hard work trudging around with those tiny legs!
Carter asked his Dad to make a Dinobot T-Rex (also from Transformers) for him. Daddy cannot say no!
He started out with a huge snowball! Seriously look at the size of that thing. He even needed a little help to get it to the top of the hill.
Erica made a lovely snowman with crazy hair to sit on top of the hill. The snow was perfect snowball weather...so sticky!
These two goofs were sitting on a sled together watching some poor girls try to ice skate through all the snow. Can you tell they were having a good time?
There's my tired goofy bean. She was flirting with Erica while she tried to get a good picture!
Lastly, here's Kyle making some teeth for Grimlock. It was hilarious to sit at the top of the hill and watch people stare from their cars at that giant mound of snow up on the hill!
