Impressive! (WW)

This is a gingerbread house replica of the mansion at Mt. Vernon. It was made by former White House Pastry Chef, Roland Mesnier . Pretty impressive work! Of course, Logan just wanted to eat it...LOL!

The real deal....

Nice, winter day!

I can't believe the weather the last couple of days! Yesterday it was a high of 70!! I'm not sure about today, but I think it was in the 60s at least. CRAZY! We decided to take advantage of it. A package arrived from Pa-Bob (my dad) and Meme today for the boys' Christmas. Boy did they love their gifts! One of them was a new wagon! Of course, they needed to test it out right away! Good thing it was nice out because I don't think they would have taken no for an answer!

Thanks Dad and Carla! You made their day! (I'll take pics of them with the other gift soon.)

Lucas stopping to admire his new ride....LOL!

This one is blurry, but I wanted to share it anyway. It is Lucas going down a hill in the wagon....LOL! He thought it was the greatest thing.

I'll post some Christmas pictures later. For some reason, I'm only able to upload one picture at a time right now and it is taking forever!

Tonight while tucking Logan in to bed, I was giving him a kiss on his forehead. I smelled something funky and said, "Something stinks". Logan said it was brains. "Brains?", I asked. "Yeah. I had a brain fart!".

Do you have any idea how hard I laughed? He just kept asking me what was so hysterical about a brain fart....LOL!

Oh, the joys of boys!!

Merry Christmas!

Here is the picture that we sent along with Christmas cards this year. I wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New year!

We didn't use this one, but I liked it so thought I would post it, too.

Yes ir, yes ir.......

Lucas LOVES to sing and I love to listen to him sing. A few of his favorite songs are "Q-S-Y-and P", "Trinkle, trinkle" and "Yes ir, Yes ir". Oh, and lets not forget "Another one bites the dust" and "Fraggle rock"....LOL!

At night, he presses his little head against you and wants you to sing in his ear. I just love hearing his tiny little voice singing along.

I find it funny that he calls the alphabet song "Q-S-Y-and P" because he actually knows the whole song. I must pull out the video camera and get some footage of him singing it.

You may have figured out that "trinkle, trinkle" is Twinkle, twinkle little star. Yes ir, yes ir is Baa baa black sheep.

Sweet Lucas, this one is for you!

Logan has got to be one of the pickiest eaters in the world! Today, I am in shock! I bought myself some creamed spinach because I love it. At least, I love it from Boston Market. Safeway's variety doesn't come close. My husband was making me lunch and asked what I wanted. I told him creamed spinach and toast. Now, I wanted toast on the side, but didn't specify, so he brought me a plate of toast with creamed spinach on top. Logan kept asking to have the same thing, but knowing how picky he is, I kept saying no. I finally decided to let him taste it and he said he liked it. The thing is, he usually says he likes something before he has even had a chance to taste it. However, he said he liked it and wanted some of his own. We told him that it wouldn't be a good thing to lie about it because if he says he likes it and wants it, he will have to eat it.

He assured us that he liked it and wanted it, so a piece of toast with creamed spinach on top was given to him. Watching him take his first bite was the real test to see if he truly liked it. I watched closely and didn't see any grimaces. He happily took the second bite and continued until it was all gone! I am indeed in shock. Plenty of adults wouldn't have been able to eat that and he really liked it. Perhaps he is my little Popeye?!?

Through the glass....(WW)

Panic at Mt. Vernon....

My in-laws came to visit over the Thanksgiving holiday and we went to Mt. Vernon on Black Friday. Since we've been several times before, I decided to wait outside while they all did the tour of the mansion. Lucas hasn't learned volume control and I figured since he was super noisy last time we went on a tour, he would be again. Anyhow, they had all just finished the Mansion tour and we were all headed to the smokehouse to take a peek inside and Logan tripped on a rock and fell.

Boy, did he carry on. I could not get him to settle down. He was holding his hand up in the air and I could tell that he had scraped it. Finally he managed to calm down enough to let out a wail. "There's a HOLE in ME!!!!". Oh my, he was truly panicked. It was all I could do to not laugh. I managed to get him cleaned up and bandaid on his hand. A little loving from Momma and he was alright. ;)
