New Year's Eve!

We had a busy day!

The boys helping give Josie a bath

Ben helping to change Nate's diaper! This was hysterical to watch :)

We took the boys to watch the fireworks downtown tonight. It was fun! We went and got hot cocoa afterwards-yum!

Daddy and Ben

Nate and Mama

Josie stayed sleeping in her carseat while the fireworks show was going on!

All our love!

Patti's dress

Josephine is wearing a dress that her Mama wore as a baby! Thank you Aunt Sally for making it :)

Again, not happy to be having her picture taken!

Playing with the camera.....

This isn't the best picture, but I love how contemplative she "what the heck are you thinking Ma?"

All our love!

Playing with our camera

I discovered today that our camera has a way of picking out only certain colors! Totally excited :)

3 weeks, 1 day (not crying!)

Can you see the green on her dress standing out against the black and white?

Black and White Ben

Nate with the yellow and green on his shirt standing out

The green on Ben & Nate's stockings standing out!

3 weeks old!

Josephine is growing like crazy! Here are some 3 week pictures

She wasn't too happy that I was taking her pictures instead of feeding her

But I had to get these somehow! ;)

Preston and Uncle TJ came over today too. We had fun putting together a gingerbread house!

The boys putting the decorations on the house


The three boys again

Nate sneaking the frosting

He "snuck" quite a bit! :)

Then here is a new "trick" Ben learned! I think when we have a little extra $$$, we'll need to get him into a real gymnastics class!

So proud of himself!

Nate peeking around the corner

All our love!

Ho, Ho, Ho, Merry Christmas

Both of the boys love saying this. I taught Ben last year how to say Merry Christmas in sign language since he wasn't using too many words. He has continued this tradition along with saying Merry Christmas. I love it! Nate says the Ho, Ho, Ho part and has attempted the sign language. Josie just looks pretty and doesn't say much ;) Here are some pictures to recount our fun time!

Our Christmas tree and goodies after Santa made his delivery

The stockings that Nina made us filled with Santa's goodies

Each of the boys had an unwrapped gift from Santa...this car was the big hit!

Ben liked the car too!

Nate amongst the gifts

The boys got a candy cane filled with candy and Nate got this big bouncy ball....

They were playing hockey with the candy canes and ball with Daddy

Ben opening his gift from Lala and Papa-a big tonka truck!

Nate opening his camera from Mama and Daddy

Say Cheese!

Ben showing off his new watch from Lala and Papa

Nate before opening his present from Papa Tom and Grandma Jeannie (pots & pans)

Ben with is play food from Papa Tom and Grandma Jeannie

Ben and Nate watching the tractor plow our driveway

It snowed ALL day here...thank you Lord for our wonderful neighbor Pat who plowed us out!

We had fun playing in the bath at the end of the evening


Josie had a great time too--she slept!

All our love!

Happy Christmas Eve!

Happy Christmas Eve! We're a couple of days late, but here are our pictures from the day!

Josie wearing the same outfit Ben wore on his first Christmas Eve! It says "Don't open until Christmas!"

The boys showing off the stockings that Lala has made for them and Josie

Just too cute not to post ;)

We spent the late morning at Bass Pro Shop's Santa's Wonderland. They had FREE (my fav. word!) Santa pictures :) The kids did great! In fact, when our turn was done, Nate didn't want to get off of Santa's lap!

I was able to find another stocking holder at Walmart tonight that matched ours from previous years. So here the boys are modeling all 5 stockings from Lala!

Nathaniel snuggling Josie in front of the Christmas tree before bedtime.

Ben snuggling Josie and Nate giving his new-found "Cheese" face!
