Pillow Talk...

Hey Monkey, did you hear the one about the grasshopper that walked into the bar?
What? A grasshopper in a bar??? You're pulling my leg...

Ummm, Mom...we're having GUY time... Can you get out of here?!?!?!

p.s. The Grasshopper's name was Irving....

Sandy Claws...


We had breakfast with Santa this morning. Monkey was NOT ok with sitting on his lap. He'd wave and say Ho Ho Ho from across the room, but that was it. He was more interested in coloring and eating his breakfast :)

Baby All Star...

Baby is starting to feel better today and wanted to show off his new shoes...can you blame him? They are pretty cool...

Baby turns 2...(months that is)

Had Baby's 2 month appt on Tuesday. It was a nightmare. We were there for 2 hours, the nurse hit a capillary on his first shot and he bled all over the place, and Monkey fell off a chair while Baby was getting his other 2 shots, so I had 2 screaming babies....lovely...

Baby has been sleeping almost all day ever since - poor guy...










Wishees and Ways...

My sister and I took the boys to Underwater Adventures. It was SO much fun. I'm thinking we need to get a membership...Monkey LOVED it.

We went last week and he hasn't stopped talking about it since: He already knew how to say Wishee (Fish) and Do-Dish (Tortoise), but he also leared Way (Ray - Manta/Sting Ray) and Aaaccchhhh (Shark)...

It's amazing how much more fun things are when you see them through the eyes of a babe...

Here's Meghatron trying to hide her baby bump behind the stroller...little does she realize she's actually framed it perfectly :)

Wishees!!!
The Turtles were MY favorite part - they are SO cool...


The most awesome picture from our adventure :)
Octopus was feelin' frisky today. He actually swam around instead of hiding in the corner...

Monkey was a little freaked out about the Octopus...
He DID love the moving sidewalk however...he kept getting back on, running back and then riding to the end :)


Meghatron treated us to a lovely lunch at Nordstrom Cafe' after our adventure....mmmmm....Nordstrom Cafe'......











Carpooling...

I just figured out that blogger posts pictures in the reverse order that you upload them, so to see my commute in chronological order, start at the bottom and work your way back up :)

This first image is how I line up the car in the garage so I know I'm far enough in but not too far...the tree does the trick :)

Our street...


Coming around the corner - my favorite part...In the winter you can actually see the lake through the trees...


Big hill - my car doesn't like it when it's icy...traction control seems to help though :)

Monkey didn't believe me when I told him that we'd already eaten the Cranberry Bliss Bar and that it was all gone...
Car full of kids - whatever - I could TOTALLY fit another 2 people in here...

Yeay PL!!!





This is seriously part of my drive...I'm not sure if they lined them up there in case someone slid through or not, but it's a good idea :)

NOSE!!!

Nose is how Monkey says Snow and he LOVES to play outside. Especially with Daddy :)

Here he is sledding down the "hill" in our front yard...


Daddy made snowballs and Monkey had to have one in his hands at all times...



I know the image is kind of dark, but here's the snowman they built together. Fun!!!

Our Christmas Card Picture Fiasco

SO...last wkend I took the picture of the kids for our Christmas cards this year.

What a lovely time that was...Cole was tired and crying and upset, Max kept tipping over, it was definitely a challenge.

I took 99 pictures to get 3 keepers. You can see the out-takes here :)
This is what we went with:


Happy Holidays everyone!
