Luke received this wonderful ball pit for Christmas. On Monday when I returned home from work I asked luke where all the balls went and he pointed towards the TV. I didn't think much of it and thought he threw the balls behind the TV. I didn't look. On Tuesday I was searching hard for the DVD remote as we had just received shots and needed a relaxing time. I couldn't find it and again noticed the balls were gone but this time realized they weren't behind the TV. So I asked Luke again where they were and he point towards the speaker on the L. So I stuck my hand in the little hole and found the remote and proceeded to pull out all you see in the picture (minus the presents). Yes there were those 20 balls and 2 pacificiers and the remote and the bob the builder phone, he said Luke and Jeffery-so I am assuming that Luke and Jeffery (the babysitter's son) had fun putting everything in the speaker!!!

Yesterday we traveled to Johnsonburg to visit my family. The whole gang was there, well almost all of them. We had a great time visiting and eating. Luke was enjoying watching the big boys play ping pong and running around the table and found his head in line with a paddle, but that owie ddn't last too long. We got to talk to Erin on Skype for a good hour, which was amazing. Graham was a hit and everyone didn't think he was too big! Which was a shock to his parents. Today is our 7 year anniversary and we are going out to dinner and a movie!!!

Merry Christmas to you all!!! We had a good day and presents throughout the whole day. Someone might say, oh you buoght them to much! No that isn't the case. Santa brought each child 3 presents, as that is how many Jesus got for his birthday, Aunt E got each boy 2 presents, and there were 2 other presents for each child plus a stocking. So that isn't that many. Luke however started by opening up the backpack from Aunt E and then wanted to watch a Dvd that was in it. So we did that and ate breakfast. After breakfast he wanted to go and play in the baseump (yes his word for basement) where there was a John Deere Power Wheels Gator from Mimi that occupied a good hour or 2 or crashing into many things in the baseump. Then we returned upstairs and read some of the books in the backpack from Aunt E and then had a melt down and went to sleep. Graham was content to play with paper. He is cutting his second tooth and is not happy about it so he was up 4 times last night saying hi to his lovely parents!! Graham received a robot from his Aunt, which Luke enjoyed, and a stuffed Moose, which the dogs enjoyed. We got to play with Graham and open a few of his toys with him alone when luke was napping and found a gumball machine with little balls and a new rattle that he loved from Santa. After naptime, we opened up a Gator golf and his Monkey playdoh game which then we had to play with for a long while and then it was dinner time. We then went back in the baseump and then went to our neighbors house for an hour. When we returned, Luke said he didn't want to open up anymore presents and Joe opened them for him and showed him what he got and he was excited and then watched a show, read books, prayed for the giraffe's and went to bed. Graham was excited about Luke's ball pit and liked to sit in that. Graham was fussy on and off but enjoyed his dinner of sweet potatoes and went to bed after a nice bath! We hope you guys all had a wonderful Christmas as well and remember the true reason for the season!!

Well the boys had their first taste of Christmas this past weekend. My Dad and Laurel were in town and we celebrated with them as they are headed to Nebraska to see her family on Christmas. So Christmas was Sunday morning. Luke got into Christmas pretty quickly and was even willing to share and let others have a turn. Some funny quotes
-upon opening his soccer ball and net and looking at the box-
"my soccer ball and 2 boys!" (thinking the picture of the boys came with the ball
-"my favorite toy"-said after he opened up his stocking and found a m and m candy cane thing with a m & M guy on the top
-my favorite toy "as he plays with graham's new busy town"
-"time to eat" he declares in the middle of present opening
we have a few more Christmas's to go-the real one and then heading to Kansas to visit with Joe's family there.
Merry Christmas to you all!

We decorated the family Christmas tree this evening. We had put up the tree Saturday evening when the boys were in bed with every intention of decorating it on Sunday, but it didn't happen. So tonight after dinner and our advent calendar, where luke gets a piece of Chocolate, we put on Peter, Paul, and Mary Christmas Special from 1993 and started the fun. Luke was at first very into it and liked looking at all the ornaments (which he called toys) and then he put like 3-4 right on the bottom and then he took up residence on the step stool and pointed out where the ornaments should go. Mostly it was right in front on him where there are already 20 ornaments. But we got them all up and it is decorated.

Well this is the second time we
put some of Graham's clothes on Luke and we didn't know it. One day when the boys were wearing their matching sweaters I put Graham's on Luke and didn't realize it until I went to put Graham's on and it was huge. Then last night Joe was getting Luke ready for bed and put pants on him. After about an hour I realized those pants are more like kapri's and they are Graham's new pants that Mimi bought him for 9 months. Luke is 2 yrs and 9 months but still fits in some 9 months clothes, but please don't buy him that size!!!!
