Just for fun

Here's some pictures just for fun.

Here's a couple of papers Owen brought home from school lately. So cute! He loves to write and is really starting to read! Lately, I've been finding him reading books to Jack and Emmett. I love it!

Here's a link to a funny video the boys made with the kids. They thought they were so cool.

All of sudden Emmett starting sucking his thumb. What the heck?! Unfortunately, I think it might be hereditary. Robby sucked his thumb until he was five!

All of my handsome boys!

Playing in the Snow

The kids have been begging to go play in the snow. So we drove about an hour away to do some sledding. Robby's sister and her family joined us as well as his brother and his family. It was a pretty cold day but I think the kids enjoyed it. Jack especially enjoyed the snow and the cold didn't seem to faze him at all. He keeps asking when we're going to go back.

Here's the link to a video Robby made of the kids sledding.

This trip also gave us a chance to try out our new camera. I realized my cell phone took better pictures than our digital camera so I decided to get a "real" camera for Robby for Christmas. It's so nice to finally have pictures that aren't so dark and grainy!

Christmas and New Year's

We spent Christmas here in town with Robby's family. The boys had a blast and got everything they wanted and more. (Except those skateboard ramps Owen wanted. I don't think they would fit on Santa's sleigh.) Robby swore he would not get the boys Pillow Pets but caved at the last minute. Thank goodness, because they both say it was their favorite present.

We had our annual New Year's Eve party with Robby's friends from growing up and most of his family. It was tons fun but I think we are outgrowing our house. There were 15 kids here! We continued our tradition of Chick-Fil-A nuggets and scones with honey butter. Fortunately, we had the bright idea of setting up the TV and DVD player in the boys room and the kids stayed back there most of the time. The kids definitely tested out the weight limit of the new bunk beds.

(And yes, that teal leather couch will die soon. Even if it requires me taking scissors to it!)

We had a great Christmas break but it was nice once it was all over to get back to our normal routine.

Who's Who?

Just for fun. Here's all three boys coming home from the hospital in the same outfit and same car seat. Bonus points if you know who is who. But don't feel bad if you don't. Robby got them confused!
