Christmas run down

Here is a quick run down of all the activities around here...
Videos tomorrow!

Grandpa and Grandma drove up for a visit.
Grandma and Joey had a quiet conversation over lunch.

Then it was Grandpa's turn.

There were many gifts to unwrap! Whoo hoo!

"I like my new horsey toy! Thank you!"

"It's yummy!"

Jimmy helped make the breakfast casserole. Mostly through quality control and supervision.

Why yes, I am your present!

Joey mesmerised by the tree christmas morning.

Lots more presents to unwrap.

Joey helped with quality control.

His first submarine!

Put me in coach! I'm ready to play!

The tree is getting a little more colorful each year.

Jimmy's ornament this year. Jimmy painted the blue parts by himself!

Thank you everyone for such a great Christmas!

Lesson learned

Today I learned something new...

A chocolate rainbow cake does not have a very long lifespan in this house. - not a huge surprise-

A "heavy glass dome" will not protect it.

Some one will help themselves.

And really enjoy it!

Caught cake handed!

Joey was just an innocent bystander! by-bouncer?

Pre-Christmas post

Jimmy knows it's important to capture special moments on film.


Joey's first visit to Santa, after we untangled his (Santa's) beard out of his (Joey's) grubby little fingers...

Jimmy wasn't excited to see Santa this year, but still asked him for a "Train, please!"

Then he supervised Jeff putting up the tree...

And posed for a cute picture!

Here's the reaction to the tree lights!

* Again I have to apologize for the vader-breathing...dang sensitive microphone!*

Tis the season for sharing

Joey has no problem sharing with the cat.

Here Kitty- have some mum mum!

The cat has no problem taking what isn't stuck to his shirt.

Joey doesn't mind...
"I'm minty fresh!"

Not any more... I had blueberries for breakfast!

They were yummy!

All clean again, and just as cute!

Nakie on a blankie!

I have piggy piggy toes!

Christmas teething ring...

Not much new here...

Jimmy has a new club house. Boys and octopi only!

Great vantage point for watching Diego.

Joey chows down. Nom nom nom! Avocado!

This is probably the last year I will be able to get away with this type of shenanigans!

Jingle jingle jingle. I can hear the sleigh bells ring!

This lolcat struck me as particularly funny, although that's not how I squeeze cats!

I have found lolcats

They are hilarious~ if you can stand the text.
I will most likely post my favorites randomly throughout the coming weeks.

I'm a lucky, lucky woman!

And he does the dishes sometimes, too!

Soon Joey will be able to do this with out help...

We've gotten the "cheese" part down...

Now we just have to work on the nice smile with the eyes open part!

I don't know what they're talking about, but I'm sure world domination is a part of it!

Jimmy loves him some chocolate pudding!


Maybe when he's old enough I'll let him know about the tofu I make it with...

Until then, I'll just enjoy the clean bowl and the cute llama llama llama llama llama outfit!

How was YOUR weekend?

This pretty much sums it up for around here...

So we were inside all weekend as we are still without a car!

*side note in defense of my Vader-like breathing*
You may have noticed my heavy breathing in the videos... there are two good reasons for this!
First, the microphone on the camera is pointed towards me and is very sensitive!
Second, I have usually just run around looking for the camera!
