Around here..

Thanksgiving is come and gone. December is in full swing. Andy is 2 1/2 and really has more of an attitude than he used to. He is also moving to the big kid room at daycare this week. I have a lot of shopping done, but a little left to do for Christmas, and I have all the supplies for making some christmas goodies for the boys' teachers, but I haven't had time to do it yet.
Here are some photos in no particular order:
We visited Santa at the local middle school. Andy has the cutest smile, but you will notice he is clenching his fists and will not really touch him.

Andy is super crabby every morning. He cries 80% of the time for at least a few min. in the morning, and then about 15 min. later he snaps out of it and is fine.

A big highlight over our Thanksgiving break was our marble run courses built by John.

We had a great time over Thanksgiving. Andy made a mess with his Ice cream, we played many games of Ticket to Ride, enjoyed some fabulous food and some good movies. On the weekend, Grandpa came over to work on the shed and got some Jay and Andy cuddles.
Here are some pictures of the guys working on the shed:
It was Disney day at preschool so Jay went as a pirate, and Andy went as Woody. We found a red hat in the basement while we were finding our costumes, and Andy convinced me I was "Jessie" from Toy story. He called me Mommy-Jessie the rest of the night and the next morning...so I wore a plaid shirt and pigtails to school and went with it.
I wasn't sure if we would get our Christmas decorations up this year, but I had the house clean by 8am on Saturday, and Jay offered to do a lot of it, so I supervised (and yelled a few times when they almost broke ornaments) and we had it done in a little over 2 hours. The boys turn on the tree lights right away when they wake up.
John got to go to the Broncos game vs Bills this week. They had great weather.
Jay and I tried our own copy-cat photo:
I finished my masters class this semester and we had a get-together for our final:) Here I am with a few of my Saudi Arabian classmates and my professor.
