More Christmas Activities

Every so often I get to do a project--ALL BY MYSELF. I write this down because it rarely happens. I want to remember my Sunday. No TV, Christmas music playing softly in the background of quiet children playing together (that's right. i said together and not at mom's hips) and Dad helping me in the kitchen to finish up our neighbor gifts. It really was a mother's heaven for a moment.


I interrupted my moment to take a picture.


Last night on the advent was to "Take a Picture by the Christmas Tree". I didn't make it a formal thing because we just took our family pictures. And very informal it was. Here are our attempts:
Aly is pouting behind me

See there she is:)

Jane took this one. Aly is still mad.

Good thing Brett posed. You look great honey:)

Going along with the mood

Aly shaped up and wanted her own picture by the tree. Don't you love being 2? Huh Aly? Isn't it great:)



Dad was in charge of the treat for Family Home Evening.



Aly spilled on her shirt which then comes off immediately which then gives Dad the crazy idea of this...

Painting Aly with pudding. He got to clean her up:)


While Tobe finished it off.

Just another crazy day in our crazy lives.

So cute, isn't it funny just how difficult it can be for little kids to sit still for one second to take a picture. Looks like you guys are having fun!

Love the laundry basket. Looks like Aly has a bit of her sister in her. A little stubborn side to such a cute little one. I miss my babies!!!!

I love your Christmas tree! It is pretty!

I love the different "tree" pictures. Ahhh... I think we have all been there... one kid crying, the other being silly, one that wants to TAKE the picture. But... I love the picture of Aly with pudding on her boobs... nice...

You and your kids crack me up!! Wish you were closer.
