Christmas gatherings and more

We started out our holiday season with Christmas with Grandpa and Grandma S. Andy loved to eat the presents!
He got some good books for Christmas!
Then on Wednesday uncle Chad came over to help babysit. I love these two pictures he took: I call this one...waiting for Christmas because you can see the chain we made of days until we left for grandma N's house.
John took the toilet apart...but it broke...
...so we went shopping for a new one. Jay enjoyed testing lids for us:)
John brought the old one to work and replaced a buddies desk chair with the toilet and a bow!
He was very excited about the new toilet and wasted no time putting it in.
Just because I am including toilet pictures, I thought I would put in this one. I left Jay in grandpa and grandma's bathroom to do some business and came back to this. I said "Jay what are you doing?" he said "oh, I just talkin on the phone mom"
On Saturday we left to go to Iowa. Jay enjoyed his present from us (leap pad)
The trip went pretty well. We had a great time meeting up with family. The boys got new pj's
The 5 grandkids
Opening Presents
We went to the rec center one day and I played a bunch of duck duck goose.
Andy gave lots of smiles to everyone including grandpa.
We did a photo session with the boys and took pictures of them with their present from Davina.
Jay loved the piano and organ at both sides. Here he is playing with uncle Kyle.
...more to come.

Hockey Game

We had an opportunity to take Jay to a Hockey game tonight. He was very excited about it, not so excited about the line for parking, but he had a great time. His favorite parts were giving Slapstick (the mascot) a high five and knuckles, watching his friend Cavyn play at half-time, getting to play daddy's cowbell when the game got exciting, yelling along with everyone else, and of course gummy snacks. I love this video. Andy was a hit with anyone who even glanced at him. I think the Santa hat and the PJ's helped, but who wouldn't want to smile at this?:)

videos Dec 2012

Here are some videos, mostly for my family to see how much the boys have grown lately: More brotherly fun: Andy is busy adoring Jay in all his craziness, and then Jay kicks a ball right into his head...but he just shrugs it off:) Setting up the Christmas tree: We put the bike at Grandpa and Grandma's house on the lowest seat setting and he went crazy. Not even 2 1/2 and riding a bike! Happy Andy. Oh and you can see some of our Christmas decorations in the background:)

I can't keep up...(and Andy 6 months)

with posting pictures of my favorite boys. I am functioning very well at school even though I am still getting up twice in the night with Andy...but after feeding them, bathing them, making supper, reading stories, eating supper and getting them ready for bed...and then getting ready for the next day, I only have time to answer a few e-mails and go to bed before it all starts again. Andy Andy is 6 1/2 months now. He started sitting aroung 5 months, and ever since he hit 6 months he has been crawling (it is more of a scoot crawling- but he is pretty fast!). Kristie (his babysiter) has had a tough time with her Christmas tree because he gravitates towards it. In the last 2 week he has also started pulling himself up on things and going from laying to sitting (but that only occasionally works) Andy started saying ma-ma this week! This is very exciting to me because Jay would only say da-da for MANY months before he said ma-ma. Andy rolling around naked because he had the teething poop for a while.
So...we got a new trash can with a lid that closes because of this situation:)
Santa in his sleigh?
Andy has been taking a bath in the big boy tub for about a month. He LOVES it.
We took the boys to get thier picture taken at a nice place and this is one of the prints we ordered of Andy...
One of those fun moments:)
A little bit of what the future looks like for us...

carving pumpkins 2012

Jay took it upon himself to line up all the pumpkins in the grass.
We had already decorated a few of them with felt stickers from the dollar store.
Andy just chilled out and rolled around trying to eat the grass.
