Christmas Trip - part 1

What a great week we had in Ft. Wayne. We got to see friends, family and a movie :)

We wanted to share a few pictures from the trip. Enjoy...

Here's Wes playing in the wrapping paper.

Poppy got to read a story to a "book loving" Wes.

Nathan had just discovered "Bob the Builder" games on the internet. He had played with daddy a few times and wanted to play with Poppy when we saw him. Here they are painting one of the characters.

Aunt Jan showing Becca and Wes how to check email :)

Is 3 too many for a horse to carry?

The joy of the box

We really should have learned by now. Mike and I spent time putting together the boys' Christmas gift and really all we needed to do was empty the box :) The boys are still enjoying the kitchen, but the focus of their days for now is playing with the box. So far they are finding lots of uses for it: a shed for the lawn mower, a bed to sleep in, a table to eat from, and --if I would let him-- for Wes a chair to sit on. So, for all who helped to make the kitchen possible for the boys this Christmas, we thank you also for the gift of the box!

One kitchen delivered

and now put together. (way too difficult to put together, at least more time consuming than desired)

The boys kitchen finally came today, thanks to Fedex Ground. Nathan had just went down for a nap and Wes had just gotten up from a short nap. So, Wes got to help put it together. Nathan hasn't seen it yet, but we think we know what we will be doing the rest of the night :)

Here are a few pictures of the process...

(doesn't it look like the girl is trying to talk to Wes?)

He hadn't quite gotten the concept of the whole thing yet)

here is is, before its been played with.

Sick, sick, sick, sick

all 4 of us are at different stages of sickness and it is no fun. The boys have been sick for longer and are starting to feel a lot better, just as Amy and I are starting to not feel so great.

Wes is officially off the pacifier. Its been over 2 weeks and he has been putting himself to sleep pretty well without it. He is becoming more attached to his dog and blankets, though.

Nathan is doing really well at being potty trained. I don't think he's had an accident (minus a couple times while he's sleeping) in about 2 weeks. Its scary.

Amy and I were able to put some pictures up on the walls. The first time in over a year we've had stuff on the walls. Its nice, but in a weird way we were getting used to having blank walls.
