I have a little catching up to do....

What in the world?!! Has it really been over a month since I updated this silly little blog?

We ended 2009 with a bang! It seems like there was always something going on. We spent Thanksgiving in UT with friends and family and as always, we had a great time there and a hard time coming back home.

Prior to going to UT, some friends and I bought a booth at a local craft fair to sell some of our crafts, So I was busy sewing some items to attempt to sell. Here are a few of my creations:



Simone (my Sister-in-law) and her kids came home from UT with us to play and extend our vacation for another week. After a little unexpected delay in our trip and a 2 day mini vacation in Reno due to SNOW, we finally arrived home and we had a great time with them.






Ethan turned 6 months. At 6 months he is cooing and saying da da (which Brett is loving!) and he is rolling all over the place. On Dec. 11, 2009 he discovered that he could roll from his back to his tummy. He was quite proud of his new found ability and know he rolls and rolls and rolls. He starts out on a nice blanket on the floor and within minutes he is off the blanket and playing with anything that he can get his chubby little hands on. I have quickly been reminded how clean I need to keep the floors with a little one who is semi-mobile now.



CHRISTMAS!

The boys had a great Christmas and I believe that Santa brought them nearly everything they asked for! Here they are coming down stairs on Christmas morning. Notice their jammie pants?! I finally finished sewing them (5 pairs) just in time for Christmas eve. The boys love them and wear them all the time and that makes me happy!



Baby's first Christmas:



The boys were out of school for 6 weeks! Yep, it was a long break, but so much fun! The boys were not too happy about returning to school come January and to be honest, I wasn't sure that I was ready either. There is something fun about having the kids home and seeing them throughout the day. It is also nice to not be on such a structured schedule, but then again a little structure is good and now that they are back in school I am realizing again just how much easier it is to shop/ run errands with only 2 kids in tow.

We spent New years eve and day in Napa with Jed and Kathy (thanks for having us) and it was a great way to celebrate the arrival of the new year and also end our last few days before work and school commenced. So that is me getting caught up in a nutshell and now I am ready to blog again. (assuming of course that anyone is still reading this)

And this is just for fun....this is how I found Erik last night as I went to tuck him in! So cute that it made me laugh! 3-D glasses and his new 3-D issue of Lego magazine.



Happy 2010!

Welcome back! I was wondering where you were. Sounds like your December was filled with lots of fun activities - my kids didn't want to go back either.

I have found my boys with the exact same issue and 3-D glasses. So cute! Sounds like you had a great trip. Glad you made it home safe!

Whew! You've been busy, haven't you? I love the picture of Ethan. And the one of Erik is cracking me up! I'm excited to get to know him better working with him in Webelos. Btw, did you let him burn an egg? :)
