Out of the mouth of babes

Retold by grandpa:

My girl, "What are you doing?"
Grandpa, "I'm putting lotion on my head."
My girl, "Why are you putting lotion on your head, grandpa?"
Grandpa, "Since I don't have much hair, my head gets dry."
My girl, "Don't put too much lotion on your head, more hair might fall out grandpa!"

We've had a week packed with Christmas festivities. My family is exhausted. Currently we are recovering and antipicating the last of our Christmas celebration this weekend.

Merry Christmas

I hope your Christmas is filled with sweet memories
of your family as you celebrate
the birth of our gracious Lord and Savior.

Blessings - Jen

My girl is three

My sweet little girl is now three.
It's so hard to believe.
She is growing up before my eyes.

She is smart.....
fun and outgoing.

She is our early morning conversationalist. I mean real early in the morning.
Lover of things little.
Devourer of jelly sandwiches.

We had her Curious George Birthday party this weekend.
Her only interest was of her presents. Can't blame her.
Thankfully she is not too girlie.
Me: "What do you want for your birthday?"
My girl: "a little princess and a race car."
My boy: "Girls can't have race cars!"
Hubby: "Little princesses like to drive race cars."

That's my girl!

Happy birthday. I love you! - Mom

No Christmas presents please....

...we have cardboard!
The week before Thanksgiving we resurrected this
pirate ship from storage and placed it in the
kids playroom.

I did not think much of it until I heard thumps and giggles, thumps and giggles.
I went to find out what my kids were up to and this
is what I saw.

They were placing the cardboard pirate ship upright and then falling down with it.
This week we received a package in the mail.
Once again the cardboard was up for grabs.
It became a ramp for my boy's cars.
As well as a run and skid across the living room floor toy.
(Not pictured)
No need for toys when you have cardboard.

five and a half

My boy has been counting down the days until he will be officially 5 1/2. Well today was the day. He was so excited. Coincidentally his class had a field trip today to see the play "Babes in Toyland." When my boy came home today, I asked him about it. He said, "Mom, the play wasn't really a play. It was just a show. We didn't get to play." He looked disappointed.

Here are my favorite phrases that my little guy currently says often :)
"Really? Sweeeeeet!"
"You're kidding me. That's awesome!"

Not too posed

Most of my favorite shots are not posed. I seem to prefer the more candid shots. Here are a few photos of my kiddos with their cousins. Just wondering....which one do you prefer.

The favorite pic will be given to the grandparents and great aunt/uncles.

My sister

Over Thanksgiving I got to spend a few days
with one of my favorite people... my sister.
She's a great friend and
as you can tell she's an awesome mother.

I enjoyed our time doing the black Friday shopping. Love you - Jen
