The holidays are here!!!

Well I am sure everyone was busy this weekend with the holiday, black Friday, etc. We had a really nice Thanksgiving - again can't help but reflect on all we have to be thankful for. My mom and I have a yearly tradition to go out on black Friday and so daddy stayed home with the boys and my mom and i went out for a couple hours on Friday. Here are some shots from thanksgiving at grandma and grandpa's.

Throughout this weekend we have decorated for Christmas - I find myself putting a lot less out this year because of the boys - there is a lot of things that I used to put in places that they could now get to it. Here are some pictures of the boys helping to put up their Christmas decorations.

This has kind of been a hard weekend for mommy because the boys are getting so big!!! We had to go through their drawers and get rid of their smaller clothes and they have moved up to size 3 diapers!! I am so glad they are doing well and gaining weight and getting bigger but at the same time I want to keep them little babies for a little while longer - so many people have told us how fast they felt their kids grew up and I am seeing time slip right before my eyes!! here is a picture of my big boy Rylee sitting up so well all by himself!! He can now get in this position and maintain this position all by himself.


I tried to take some pictures of the boys this weekend to try to get a good Christmas card picture - I don't know that any of these are the winner but there are some cute ones - for those that haven't seen some of Baylee's crazy faces here is a sample....

Now that we have the tree up I am hoping to do some in front of the tree and see how those turn out....Daddy took this one of me and the boys after we were done with the ornaments tonight...
We went to my parents church today and then went over to their house afterwards - it was a typical lazy Sunday after church....

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!!!

When my boys where your guys age - that Christmas it looked like Macys at our house we took the hexagon gate and Scott bolted it to the wall and into the floor to make a simi circle around the tree...LOL I did add garland to take away the baracade look...well tried anyway! it did keep them away from & off of the tree and the presents under it! And made my life much easier! Didn't see the need to do that for the singletons...LOL
