do we go from this
to this

all within a weeks time????? He is trying to grow up way too fast. Thankfully he hasn't started to crawl yet, but he does get up on his knees and throw himself forward pretty well. He doesn't even really like to just sit and play much. He either turns to climb up on me or lay on his belly to get in the crawling position. I better get prepared.

Church Christmas Program

The Annual Christmas Program.......this year Joshua was a donkey and Nicholas was, once again, a cow. He wasn't very happy about that, but he cheered up once he saw all his friends were cows too. Nicholas actually sang some of the songs, whereas Joshua, on the other hand, just played with his donkey ears and pretended like he wasn't there. He is a character for sure. I even sat up there for a little bit with Zachary until he got fussy. The program is always a lot of fun to watch and this year was no different. The kids are very precious. Love them all.

Getting ready to go on stage.

Don't they all look excited to be there?

Classic Joshua

Christmas Card 2010

Merry Christmas Everyone! Now that cards have been sent I wanted to share the Christmas card I had made from Shutterfly. I think it turned out pretty good and was very happy only to pay shipping for them. Any and all savings are appreciated this time of the year. I was not able to get a shot of all three of them for this card, but their solo shots are pretty cute. Hope you all have a very blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Oh Christmas Tree.....

Christmas Tree a hunting we went last weekend. It was actually still fairly warm that evening in comparison to this week, brrrrr. It was also the perfect time to go since most people were in their homes watching the football game. We went to a new place down the road this year, smaller, but they had some beautiful trees. I found one I really wanted, but it was way too big for our little house. One day maybe. The tree we did find, however, is just as beautiful. The boys enjoyed running around and playing hide and seek for a little bit. Good times. I love the smell of fresh Christmas trees.
No nap sleepy boy, but we did awaken him.

Zachary was enthralled with the trees.
Nicholas wanted to be in the picture too.

Hide and seek

Our Christmas Tree

Nicholas didn't want to smile so instead he did crazy faces. Not sure where he gets this :-)

Joshua did his best at holding Zachary. He sure does love "touching" him.

Just Joshua's size. He wanted to take this one home.

Birthday Party

Last weekend Zachary and I headed to Ella Harding's first birthday party. Amanda, of course, was the hostess with the mostess. We had a wonderful brunch and Zachary enjoyed playing with Ian and Ella Harding.

The birthday girl getting ready to dig in.

Ian and Zachary. Zachary had just started to sit up on his own for brief periods of time.

Ella Harding had to investigate who was laying on her playmat.
He wasn't quite sure about her poking at him, but she is cute so he went with it :-)

Picture Day

Here are a few shots I took of the boys the day I went to have their pictures taken for Zachary's 6 month, Joshua's 3 year and a few Christmas shots.

Love the pockets on this outfit.

This picture is just funny with their white undershirts and jeans. So styling. Burt was trying to pose them all "cool", but you see how that went.
