Joy Banner

Joy Banner
Amy E, coworker, is making these darling Joy Banners for Christmas gifts.  I think this is a fun project and would love to make one of my own.  I am trying to figure out how to link all of these "make" posts together on a separate page.  I have made a "MAKE" page but it seems I can add this post to that link. Anyone with tips?

Lego mania!



Benjamin love legos!!! He enjoys reading the step by step instructions, finding the pieces and assembling. One of his Christmas gifts was a large pack of space legos. Last night he set to work assembling and this afternoon he finished. He is quite proud of his creations, this is the largest lego project he has completed.

Christmas Morning






The boys had a fabulous Christmas. They received some great gifts and were very excited to watch and help Nicholas open his presents. Nicholas was thrilled and entertained with the wrapping paper and enjoyed tasting all of the new toys. The best part is the morning started at 7:30. Whew, not too early.

We hope you all had a wonderful day. Merry Christmas!!!

Happy birthday Andrew!

Andrew turned 11 today! We are all so excited to celebrate with him. Our normal birthday tradition is the birthday Boy gets to choose the restaurant for their special dinner. Andrew chose IHOP, what's better than breakfast for dinner?! Maybe 1.99 kids meals? Yeah, gotta love the IHOP!

Prior to dinner Andrew hunted for and found his gifts. He was pleased with his presents.

We have a friend party planned in a few weeks. He wants to take a few friends to see the new Harry Potter.

Sunday we will have a family party with Grandparents and cousins.

November is all about Andrew!
