Too Cute

I need to write an entry about Christmas... but no time tonight! I just wanted to upload this picture, so cute! Facebook friends have seen it but I wanted to share it with those of you who don't use facebook. The boys wanted to bounce together tonight in one bouncy seat! Let's just say... they exceeded the weight limit :)

Kale weighed them with him on the bathroom scale this morning. We know it isn't exactly accurate but Anderson was about 13lbs and Fletch was 12! Holy smokes:) We will know for sure at our appointment next Monday.

Christmas update will be soon. Just have to find the time! Until then here is a sneak peak of Christmas pictures...

Giddy up Daphne!!

Tummy Magic

The boys have been in the best mood today. We have been awake, except for a few catnaps, since 8 this morning. They are starting to interact with me more and more. Since they had been up so long I thought we would go have a little tummy time before our lunch. Well, I drug out the TT mat and laid it down in their room. Once we got all situated this is what happened...

That's right... they passed out! Now lunch is in 20 minutes... do I let them sleep or wake them up to keep them on schedule?!? That is the question of the day.

Good Food and Neck Ties

Tonight was the second grade Christmas party! We always have such a good time when we get together. I miss my girls so much. Now I'm not saying that I don't love to be home with my boys, but I do miss talking with my second grade team. This year was so different than last year. Misty brought her little girl who is 3 years old. Sonja had Jackson, 4 months, we had our boys, 6 weeks, and Amber is prego with Asher! Jeez... just think next year all those boys will be mobile! Here is a cute picture of the three boys hanging out together.

Since it was a Christmas party I thought Fletch and Danger needed to dress appropriately. Check out their cute outfits I made!

I also threw together some jazzed up picture frames today. I gave one to Brenda and kept one for myself! They were so easy to make. Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas!! J/K :)

Well, tomorrow is family Christmas picture day. I hope it goes quickly and smoothly! Hopefully I will have a pleasant blog to share with you all after it is over. Maybe even some cute pics!

Tuckerd Out

Let's begin with a "Thank you Lord for Grandparents!!" My mom was awesome enough to babysit the boys overnight for my birthday. Kale got us a room at Aloft and I got to go to bed early and sleep ALLLLL night long. Best birthday present ever for a new mom :). I didn't worry about the little men at all... I knew they were in GREAT hands. Thanks Mom. I love you. Next, Kenny and Dorothy came over last night and entertained the boys so that Kale and I could clean the house for the Christmas party on Friday. I was able to get the entire house clean, except for mopping (that comes VERY last), in about three hours. It would have taken me forever if they had not come over! Thank you guys so much. We are lucky to have y'all!

Yesterday was a bit of a fussy day. I'm learning a lot of different things to do when they boys decide it is yelling contest time. We went from swings to bouncers. Then boppy time, tummy time, and I even strapped on the baby carriers and we walked and walked and walked! Tummy time was the biggest hit. Here is a picture after about 20 minutes of TT. Let's just say the boys were pretty tuckered out. They gave up and decided to have a little nap. Mommy didn't mind :)

Tummy Time!
Sleepy Anderson

Sleepy Fletcher

I ended up giving Dorothy her Christmas present last night. I'm the WORST at not being able to wait! Here is a picture of the first wreath I've ever made. I think she liked it! It was so fun to make. A bit messy but totally worth it.

My first wreath!

Mamie and Renee are going to come over for a few hours today so that I can mop and run to Wal Mart. I know I say it a lot but... thank goodness for family! Have a great day all. Enjoy the slightly warmer weather today... it won't last long!

Buff Boys

Let's start with a shout out to my brother Ben. Today is his 16th birthday!! 16 years ago I was so thankful that you came early and weren't born on my birthday :) Ben is a great uncle. He always wants to hold and help out with the boys. They are lucky to have you! We love you Benny.

We had a trip to the pediatrician today. Both of the boys have colds and Fletcher has pink eye. This means Anderson will have pink eye about the time that Fletch gets over it. I'm sure mommy will have a turn with it too! Anyway, the reason for this post is to tell everyone the exciting and surprising news... In just two weeks my little men have gained about 3lbs! Fletcher is up to 9lbs 1oz and Anderson is 9lbs 20z. I could hardly believe my eyes. I knew they were gaining weight but I had no idea that much!

Saw this picture today and thought it was so cute. Thought I'd share it. This one picture pretty much sums up my world.

I'm curious of who actually reads our blog :) If you wouldn't mind, and you are a regular reader, would you mind making a little comment so that I have an idea of who our audience is! If you don't want to that is fine too. I'm just curious! If you don't want to comment on here and it is easier to do it on Facebook that is fine too.
Have a good night all.
