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:)
