Christmas Pictures! :)

Well, Christmas is over. The toddler is in his bed and the baby is in her jammies headed for bed. We opened about half our presents last night and the other half and stockings this morning. Harry opened as many presents as he could get to last night and then got burned out after finding one too many "oh no, jammies" boxes and wanted to just sit down and play with his cars for awhile. We figured that we'd keep him happy and allow him to do just that- he soon fell asleep curled around his tractor. :)
This morning he woke up and ate Santa's leftover cookies. I tried to explain to him that Santa was coming to eat some cookies and would leave him more presents, but as you can imagine, my little cookie monster didn't think that was a fair trade! So, today he ran right to the end table and ate the leftovers and ripped open the rest of his presents.
Jay made a turkey and I made my usual cheesy potatoes and we all had a wonderful Christmas dinner. I have to say that having young children made this my favorite Christmas in many many years! :)
Hope you all had a blessed Christmas and ate lots of cookies!

snow day!

We got a whole bunch of wet gloppy fun snow the other day, so Harry and I headed outside while Jay was home for lunch. Harry got to build his very first snowman! He didn't do very much helping, he was mostly mad because his hat was too big, but he did have fun helping me find the rocks to make the face. (I'm going to have to pick up some carrots at the store!) He called him his "snowy-guy" and was VERY upset when he melted this morning! :)


He also tried out his skis for the first time. He was pretty unimpressed with them- I think he liked using them better in the living room!!! :P

More pix

I figured I'd start another post for all these pictures.... Stay with me, people! :) What beautiful children I have!!

Harry got his first pair of hockey skates!!

Uncle Joe-Joe brought his puppy Sydney over to play.



Harry on the way to the hockey game. I think he's the cutest little Bronco ever!




I can't believe my little boy is TWO!





The birthday boys!




Emma wasn't very impressed by the birthday festivities!



Harry and Ga-ga reading a birthday choo-choo book in their camo pants. What a pair!




Harry got to help frost his cake. As you can tell, not much ended up on the cake.


We had a little "incident" with the markers... and then needed a Dowa band-aid to fix it.




Emma didn't like cuddling with her brother very much.... :P

Trip to MN

Okay, I'm finally getting time to sit down and do this. Mostly it's going to be a bunch of pictures, but I hope you enjoy! :) Auntie Katie, Harry, and Mommy on Grandpa's wheeler
