This is fun.....

I can't believe it, but my baby will turn 5 at the end of February! It simply does NOT seem possible!

And since he will be 5, I figured it was probably time that I take down the baby gate in the hall (it was up to keep him out of the kitchen, bathroom, and from the stairs going up to the bedrooms)! :-) I mean, he CAN open it now and all! So, today while cleaning house, I took the gate down and did a little bit of re-arranging of things.

Lucas loves routine and structure, so he wasn't so sure about the changes. I moved the bookshelf from the living room into the hallway and moved the entry table back into the living room from the hallway! Funny how just those few things can make such a difference. As my husband said "taking that gate down made the hall look a lot less claustrophobic". I must say that I agree. :-)

And just for fun, here is a video of the boys playing. Just another normal day in our household.....

Date night!!

Tonight, Logan and my husband went to see Harry Potter and Lucas and I stayed home. We had lots of fun! We watched Beauty and the Beast. Lucas started the movie in one of his favorite spots to sit (the coffee table)....
and ended the movie in his other favorite seat (my lap!). :-)Lucas tried on all of his Christmas hats. The boy loves hats and his momma loves a good deal. I found them on clearance for 25 cents!! He is wearing two Christmas tree hats and one Santa stuck in the chimney hat!And, we listened to a song (and watched the video on Youtube) that I've been singing to Lucas and he loves, but he had never heard the whole song before:

Money talks!

My husband was upstairs trying to get Lucas to come up so he could get him ready for bed. I was ushering Lucas that way and he spotted his train puzzle all apart on the floor. We had just finished putting it together and Lucas was looking for something else to delay him when his daddy said, "Lucas, I've got some change to put in your piggy bank." Lucas has never gone up the stairs so fast...LOL! :-)

New Year, New Funnies!

So, I've kind of fallen off of the blogging wagon. Sorry about that. There have been a few funny things said/done that I want to make sure to get down so I don't forget!

You need a bit of background for this to be funny. A friend gave me a holder for my scissors similar to this one. For Christmas, Lucas got a Buzz Lightyear and Woody from Santa. The other day Logan brought Woody to me and said, "Look, Momma. Woody has a scissor holder on his belt." Oh how I laughed!

We were at a friend's house on New Year's Eve. She recently got new furniture and Logan was admiring it. "Look! It even has butt holders!"

My husband is great about helping me clean house. Typically I keep things pretty straightened up during the week and on cleaning day, I dust and vacuum and wipe down the kitchen and he cleans the bathrooms and keeps the boys occupied. Well, Logan has been making a mess in the bathroom and we decided that he needed to start cleaning it up. I try really hard not to try to make my husband clean the way I do. I try to just let him do it and if I see something I want done, I'll just do it once he is finished. The way I have tried to start looking at it (took me a few years to get to this point) is that him cleaning it and me wanting to do a little more is still better than me doing all of it! Well, the other day my husband was showing Logan how to clean the bathroom and was telling him that when he makes a mess, now he'll have to clean the bathroom in the same manner that he was being shown. Logan was all excited about it and as his daddy was cleaning up, Logan kept pointing out more things to clean. Yep, Logan takes after his Momma in that department! :-) I also find it funny that at 8, cleaning the bathroom is fun. Of course, this morning he was cleaning the other bathroom and complaining about having to touch the toilet where the pee was. My husband told him that is why he will be cleaning the toilet. It is his pee and we don't want to touch it either! YUCK!
