1st Real Haircut

Matthew's hair was getting long again so it was time to take him in for a real haircut...

'Before' (but after I'd already cut a few locks off the back to save...safely this time)

Already sitting in the chair like a big boy!

Ready to get started!

Love the face!

'What is she doing to me?!'

Trimming the front

'Yeah, I'm still cute!'

Daddy's trying to keep him happy!

He did great until it came time to trim around the ears.

You look mah-velous!

Cool Dude!

That wasn't so bad!

Big Sister approved!

Jonathan got his haircut, too.

Super Cute!


They gave us this cute card since it was Matthew's '1st' haircut!

Complete with a lock of his hair!

More Naptime Snuggling

I never know how I'm going to find Jonathan when I go to get him up from that nap that he always insists he's not tired for...

...but it usually makes me smile!

Seeing Double

Clara read Charlotte's Web, so her friend let her borrow the movie to watch. Sounded like a great reason for a movie night!
Clara and I even put on our matching owl PJs.

Jonathan and Matthew put on their matching airplane PJs.

Not wanting to be left out, Chris put a red shirt on Clemson, so he could match someone too!

Look Who's Talkin'...On the Phone

I don't know who he possibly could've learned this from...
but just give him the phone and he walks around the house babbling into it!

Story Time

Matthew LOVES books!
This Halloween book is one of his favorites because when you get to the last page, there is a sound byte of a spooky laugh!

Rough Housing

Chris and the kids have a game they love to play. They call it 'My Pillow'. It starts with Chris in possession of all 3 couch pillows. The kids mission: to take the pillows away!
Doesn't look like a fair match, but it is 3 on 1.

They aren't afraid to team up on their Daddy

He looks overwhelmed, but looks can be deceiving...

Chris fends them off by throwing the kids on the couch and love seat

They keep coming back for more

LOVE those smiling faces and big belly laughs!

Matthew LOVES rough housing...he climbed up on the couch and threw himself back

So Chris gave him a turn...

You can see, he hated it!

More smiling faces and big belly laughs! This is the stuff that's missing when Daddy is away from home

This is love!

Happy New Year 2011

Chris' parents decided that since we weren't heading to AZ to spend Christmas with them, they would come to CA to spend New Year's with us. They came for just a couple days, just long enough to ring in the new year and have some ice cream!
Each set of grandparents got one of the frames that the kids built and painted at Home Depot with this year's Santa pic in it for Christmas!

Clara showed Grandpa how she takes her Accelerated Reader (AR) quizzes on the books she reads. For Christmas Clara got the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, which she read at a rate of one each night and got a 100% on each quiz. This girl LOVES to read!

We should've known what we were doing, taking Grandpa to Superior Dairy last summer...he couldn't wait to take the kids back!

Grandpa's banana split

Not sure what the faces were for...but they're cute!

Matthew's first bite of ice cream

See him pushing me back so he can get at the ice cream on his own!

We would steal bites between giving him bites...

He would open his mouth and watch the spoon every time it passed him by!

I know what that dirty look is for!


We all scream for ice cream!

Who wouldn't love those faces!
