Back tracking

Friday, December 19th is when we celebrated our Christmas. It is tradition for us to take a picture on the stairs before heading into the living room to see what goodies Santa might have left under the tree. Obviously, Jack was very excited.

And from the looks of things, rightly-so. Santa must have been extremely impressed with my boys' behavior this year - that or he fell for Jack's shirt that read "Dear Santa, I was framed".

Either way, both boys were in awe of all of their many, many new toys (spoiled brats).

Jack received a new pet (which honestly freaks me out a little).

Meet Dino/Spike - the name changes daily...poor dinosaur is already suffering from an identity crisis.

Not to mention constant babying (yes, that is Dino/Spike getting a ride in a grocery cart),

and the terrorizing of two young boys.

Beau on the other hand,

among many things, received a fire truck - which he likes;

but is just as content in playing with Jack's toys.

Wish I'd known that earlier...I could have saved a lot of money.

They were having so much fun. I love the pictures. And, I'm coveting your stockings! Those are adorable!

The word verification for that comment was hory bich!?!! LOL! Is it pyschic?!? LOL

Holy cow, I can't believe they would give you such a word verification. I have that on here to keep away the spam stuff, but good grief...now maybe I will have to rethink that : )

Anyway, thanks for the comment on the stockings. I made them myself back when Josh and I were first married. I just couldn't find anything I really liked so I taught myself to sew and those were the result. Looking at them now, I could definitely see ways of improving upon them but oh well.

Lillian just wanted to play with Lucas's toys. If we would have known, we would have only bought baby toys!

Looks like the boys had a good Christmas! I am not sure why, but your pictures all look like they are chopped in half on my computer lately.

I wondered about the pics. On my computer they are fine but I have a wide screen. Thanks for letting me know, I will see what I can do.

Hmm.. On this computer it still looks like half pictures, I even zoomed out on my browser and they still look the same. I got on our other laptop and at first they were half-sized again, (The browser wasn't full screen), but then I opened it all the way and they were fine. So it must be something with my computer. That is weird becuase it has just been like this lately and I haven't seen it like that on anyone else's blog.

Love the pics. The boys are so cute in their matching pajamas. At least Dino/Spike doesn't tinkle on the floor or chew your shoes. The boys seem to love him, and he looks like a neat toy!

How adorable!!! I love this age when they start to really understand the excitement and mystery. The look on Jack's face in the stair photo is priceless. My 4 year old had the exact same look this year.
