By the way, the blanket on the left his his "blanket" the blanket on the right is his "nother" blanket, and both are required for bed time. If we just have the one, we hear "where's my nother blanket?" and the search is on.

Here is a video of what the boys call "snow surfing". They are not as close to the road as the video makes it look!!!!
As we build our next house and get excited about everything that will be new, days like this remind us of some of the things we'll miss. No sledding hills just outside the door.

Ok, you know how when little kids are playing with something they feel obligated to dump the whole box out? Well that's what Jack did with all our cars and tracks the other day. Because of that some of the tracks ended up on the bean bags near by...that lead to this. I have to tell you that not one of these tracks are actually connected.
Mak and Todd shared a birthday party the night before Thanksgiving. It was a Lego night if I have ever seen one, both of them LOVE Lego's! A few days later Todd even came over and got to help Mak finish one of his big kits.

TJ was the "star"of the show, because he was asked to play the offeratory also.
Mak actually had a touch of the nerves...not like him. At home he is flawless.
Chatham played a duet with his teacher...I'm not sure what it was supposed to sound like.

And of course you've gotta love the protective eye gear.
As I was watching him teach the boys how to chop I had many memories come back to me. I never actually went wood cutting but I have tons of memories of my Grandfather convincing my dad to go. Dad lovingly went, but it was Grandpa who loved it. I shared this story with David and then asked where he learned how to split wood. He said "My grandpa". Now there is something special we can share with the kids!
For me it was one of my least favorite days of the year, when we have to pull out all the winter gear and hope it all fits. I think it took us an hour just to find gloves, coats and all that other stuff for everyone. Even though last year I was SO organized and bought each person in the family a plastic bin to keep their things in. How is it that only one glove gets put away?

Here's a few examples from this week.
T.J., Mak and Chatham decided they were going to make their own sandwiches and I was going to be the judge of which was best. They all had secret ingredients, as well as one common ingredient: Garlic Powder.
First taste: Toasted cheese with pistachios and garlic powder.
Second taste: Toasted cheese with turkey and garlic powder.
Third taste: Toasted cheese with smooshed banana and garlic powder.
Thankfully I only had to take one bite. They all finished their own sandwiches.
Chatham was assigned to read a book but he only read three chapters, I asked him why and he said "Mom, my hands got too sweaty!"
Then there is Jack, the king of the poochy lip. He was crying because I had told him no TV. So I said to stop the tears and the poochy lip, but he said "but it makes me happy".

Bubba and Nana loved seeing their grandkids, but since Kayte had changed so much since they last saw her they had lots of fun with her.
Aunt Kayce and G.G.(Great Grandma) also flew out. The boys had lots of fun pointing out their Christmas wishes in all the magazines...especially Jack!
The boys thought the old school house was neat, but they loved the "castle". The oldest fortress in the USA, complete with moat and draw bridge. But I think they liked the cannon demonstration by the dressed up soliders the best.
Such a fun thing for the boys....good thing Kayte didn't know it was her first birthday!
Our favorite spot was the candy store...of course.
