Christmas Day...

Ok, so these first 2 pics aren't from Christmas Day, they are our Christmas card pics. Just thought you'd like to see them anyway!
Christmas was so much fun this year. The boys are at ages where they are really getting in to all that Christmas entails. First thing that morning the boys got to check out the things that Santa left in the play room. I say first thing, but they actually didn't wake up until 9:00!! It was great!
Santa brought a train/lego table, a fire house, and a table with chairs. We have already enjoyed all of them so much.
Grayson has recently decided that he loves puzzles. It's cute to me because Caden has always loved puzzles, so he likes to help little bro.
Grayson cracks us up...the boy LOVES a hat. It doesn't matter how cheap or ugly it is, he loves it!
We then went to Honey and Papa's for lunch, but somehow I didn't get any pictures there. After lunch we headed up to Columbus to spend some time with Nana and Grandpop. The boys always have a good time up there. We also get to see sweet baby Bishop...Caden calls him baby Jesus.
Gift opening madness!
Thought I'd also show some of my decorations for this year...
I clipped all of our Christmas cards into the garland on the mantle this year. I really liked how it turned out!

Christmas in Canton...

We're NUTS and we went up to Canton the day before Christmas Eve. It was PACKED, but it was still lots of fun.

Seriously, look at that face!!! How can I tell that no...EVER????!!!

Cookies with Honey and Papa...

We went over to Honey and Papa's house to make Christmas cookies. I laughed because Mom invited us over and then asked if I would pick up the cookie dough on the way! That's my kind of cooking!!!
Here's Grayson's pan. Notice all of the raw cookies have a bite taken out of them...
Caden developed a propensity for sprinkles. He's becoming quite the connoisseur...
Yummy cookie dough!!!

Sprinkle, Sprinkle...

Fun times!!

Cherub Choir...

This is Caden's first year in Cherub Choir, and he just LOVES it!!! They have their Christmas program the other day, and it was absolutely precious! My parents and Frank's parents were there for the program, too. We went out for pizza afterwards, and Caden was is HOG HEAVEN!
Here are some video from the performance:

He makes me tired...

The other night Grayson decided that I didn't get him quite clean enough in his bath, so he jumped back in after getting dried off, jammied, and a breathing treatment. Little Booger!!!!

Baby Dedication...

We went up to Columbus yesterday for Bishop's dedication. It was a very sweet service. I discovered a whole new dimension of difficulty in taking pics...I just thought it was hard to get a pic of my 2 together. Now we have a cousin to add in the mix. I just snap tons of pics in a row and hope that one of them is alright. This one's ok. These boys are going to get into ALL kinds of trouble together, and I wouldn't trade if for the world!

What a PRECIOUS new family!!! We love y'all!!!

Pony Party...

Jim and JD's birthday party was last weekend. It was a cowboy party complete with pony rides and a petting zoo. The boys had a fabulous time!!! Here's sweet Emma Kate...isn't she adorable!

The birthday boys with Mom and Dad. Nice hat, David.

Caden was a tad apprehensive about petting the animals. I don't think he understood the point. What is the point anyway?

Of course, Mr. Fearless didn't hesitate.

Still not sure about this.

New Stuff at Apple of My Eye!!

Be sure to head on over to Apple of My Eye and check out the new items! If you know anyone who might be interested, I would appreciate it if you pass the word along!

Trick or Treat...

We had tons of fun Trick or Treating with some folks from our Sunday school class. We met at the Caldwell's house for dinner, and then it was off for candy.
The kiddos were sure to go in style in their wagons. The boys had a great time. Grayson was WAY more into it that Caden was. Grayson didn't want to miss a house. It was really cute.
The wagon brigade...
Caden thought that staying in the wagon and eating his candy was a much better use of his ime than getting out at every house!!!

Fall Fest...

We had our Fall Fest at church last Saturday night. It is always a lot of fun!! I didn't get a ton of pics b/c that is getting increasingly difficult as we're chasing little ones around! Contrary to the look on his face in this picture, Caden really does love bounce houses! I don't know why he has a look of sheer horror on his face.
I can just see this one with a lamp shade on his head in years to come. The rings on his head were intended for a ring around the spider game, but Grayson thought that they were far more appropriate as head wear. It was super cute, though!
At dinner we carefully tore some bits of hamburger off for Grayson to eat, but he wouldn't hear of it. He reached out and grabbed the whole hamburger. He is certainly not going to miss a meal!
Playing the Go Fishing game.

Precious Pumpkins...

WARNING: Tons of pics to follow! I'm not sure if Caden is tasting or kissing the pumpkin in this one...but it cracked me up. He's such a little goob! I love him!!
"Ok, Caden, put your arm around Grayson.":
"Stop touching me!"

Sweet Grabes!!!

What is this?? Are they both looking in the same general direction with pleasant looks on their faces??? AND no one is picking their nose??? Nevermind that someone is about to get beaten with a pumpkin. It's a cute one!

And Grayson is outta here!!! Love Caden's face in this one!

Sweet Boy...

Sweet blue eyes...and that DIMPLE!

Maddie is very in to feet!

Look how sweet...they are playing together...

Until Caden purposely falls off...

So he can watch his brother fall off...BOYS!!! :)
