This Thanksgiving...

I was really thankful for child slaves.

Especially the kind that clean up after themselves.

Actually, I have a million things I am grateful for this year - but those two boys seem to make everything else pale in comparison. They are the best gifts I have ever been given.

Was all about this:

And then this:

No school today or tomorrow - happy thanksgiving vacation to us!

Monday snow

Today felt like the kind of winter day that I love - cancelled school, hot chocolate, sledding and snowballs. I know it seems like overkill , but we don't get winter here like this very often - especially not in November.

p.s. it turns out that sledding with one adult and two littles is a LOT of work. Maybe we will go again tonight with some help...

Sunday snow

Today we woke up to snow. It made me happy - it turned my boys in to giggling, hyper, maniacs. They were so, so excited. James asked if it was Christmas. If only there was enough to build a snowman (it is still snowing - I guess we will wait and see).


Looks like it is a little hard for James to bend over in his fat suit.

Asking me if he can throw a snowball at me.

Yo Gabba Gabba

Saturday we went to see Yo Gabba Gabba live at the Tacoma Dome. It was crazy - lots of singing, dancing, balloons and the Biz - we even got to go meet the characters at the after party. Thanks Kristyn and Jon for the tickets!
We also had the Henries come stay with us for the holiday weekend and go with us to the show - it always amazes me how much our kids love each other even though they don't get to see each other that often. Kind of like cousins.

My camera has been hiding all month - this is the only picture in my November folder....hmn I'll have to see what I can do about that.

Bye Bye binky

Today the binky fairy came and took away James' binky and left him a new Lightning McQueen car. He was really excited about the car and ready to give up his binky.
Tonight it took him an hour and a half to fall alseep. I was so desperate I let him have strawberry milk in bed and I finally ended up laying with him until he fell asleep. All I could think was - please can he have his binky back? But he couldn't, because apparently the binky fairy already gave them to baby Dallas.
I did hear some pretty cute things in his bed, like "Mom, is I'm a boy?", "I need a kiss on my cheek", and "is it free (3) o'clock?".
I hope I can make it.
