Happy Holidays

We Love Our Tree!!

We decorated our tree this weekend, and Josh LOVED putting up the ornaments. He loved it so much that he un-decorated the tree the next morning just so he could do it again. Jack has also helped redecorate the tree a few times when he takes off ornaments and gives them to Josh so he can put them back on. It's like a new tree every time I come home from school!

The next day was Sunday, and Jack has this very cute, new outfit which looked so festive in front of the tree. Doesn't this look say, "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous!" 

I was playing around with Josh's hair and ended up with the faux-hawk. Josh loved it and kept reminding us he had it on his head, though he wouldn't let anyone touch it... in case it got ruined. I'm just glad he's finally growing some hair!

Keeping Score

So far the records for broken items by children show...

Josh: 1 pair of eyeglasses
  1 cell phone
  1 laptop
  1 whole box of tampons, unwrapped and lined up across bedroom floor (pretty unusable after that!)
Jack: 1 lamp
   1 drinking glass (same day as lamp)
   1 remote in toilet (sorry boppa Goates)
   1 XBox disc drive
   1 full box of rice poured over entire kitchen floor

Now that Josh knows where things (he wants) are kept, he takes initiative and gets them himself.  Here he is with a Costco-size bag of craisins heading downstairs to watch cartoons. 

Jack is completely obsessed with water: dog bowl, puddles, toilets (he was found playing in his aunt's one night), cups, tubs, etc.  Luckily, the bowl was empty (this time) when he climbed in.
