Our Little Boogers

Sharing our lives: two kids, two full-time jobs, one old house, and plenty of love and laughter. And baseball.

Eating Outside

On the way home after Christmas, we ate outside! This mild weather is nuts! The little guy was pumped, but the baby was hangry.
She perked up after lunch.

The kids got a bunch of puzzles for Christmas (yay!!). We put a big floor puzzle together Sunday night-- it was fun! I can't wait to work through the rest of them.

Dreaming of a Cheeto Christmas

Santa brought Cheetos in the kids' stockings. (He usually brings a snack.) The kids woke up at 3am or so an we told them to get back in bed. The baby wrapped her little body around her bag of Cheetos and fell right back to sleep. Unfortunately, the little dude was bouncing around until well after 4am. Ugh.

We got yet another bag of Cheetos to split on the ride home. Here they are in all their absurd glory:
I also bought wet ones at the gas station to wash their hands and faces.

Sick Day

The baby was up sick last night, so we had a quiet, television-filled day. She even took a nap on me!

The Grinch

We are all fans of the book "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas." Eric read it tonight. It's so intense!

Christmas Outings

We went to see the Nutcracker on Saturday. It was a late night for the kids, but they had a great time. Here's the sleepy little guy when we got home:
And here's the sleeping girl:

Baby Einsteins was pretty dramatic tonight:
What a cutie!

Eric has been really good about exercising every morning. I've been jogging with a neighbor a couple of days a week, but am planning to join him on my "off" days. The kids grabbed some weights and did the video with us this morning.
I love their exercise clothes (especially her shoes)!

Spot It!

The kids and I played a rousing game of Spot It! after dinner tonight. They played against me so they could help each other. It was really sweet!
Thanks for the game, Chick Fil-A kids meals.

Kitchen Help

I've been making chocolate chip cookies every week so we have something sweet for our lunches. It's not that much work, and the kids take turns helping me.
What a little cheese-ball!

Future Paleontologist

Our babysitter got the little guy a really cute Christmas present-- a plaster dinosaur skull that contains an entire skeleton! He got to chip it out with excavation tools.
He had a blast! (Eric almost had a heart attack because of the mess...)

The little guy's Holiday Concert was tonight. His music teacher is amazing. Not only did she teach them four songs, she lead the chorus while standing up and playing the songs on the piano. Wow!

Wasting Time

I had the baby with me when I picked the little guy up from school today. It took us an hour to walk home-- we took a nice detour by the playground.
What a great way to spend an hour!

The baby is still insisting on only wearing clothes that are "twirly." She's ridiculous.

And adorable!

Breakfast of Champions?

Saturday morning, Eric and the kids ate breakfast while watching harvesters on Mighty Machines. They're so entranced (and adorably bed-headed)!

The kids really know how to drive each other crazy, but they do get a long the vast majority of the time. Here they are this morning, sitting in front of the television and watching a show on my phone.

I bought the kids these cute little wooden gingerbread house kits the other day. Real gingerbread houses gross me out-- they are such roach magnets! Yuck. These, though, are super cute!
The kids had a great time making them.
The little dude even put together a backdrop made out of construction paper for the houses to sit on.
