Christmas is coming!

My mom bought the boys some cute Christmas outfits that i just have to show off...

Thanksmas 2008

Every year we rotate holidays with our families. This year we spent Thanksgiving with Aaron's family in Houston. We also went ahead and exchanged Christmas presents thus giving the name "Thanksmas".

Aunt Rachel opening a beautiful necklace picked out personally for her by her son, Blake.

The Wiggle's Big Red Car! Oh yes, it was a wiggly Thanksmas and now Nathan can sing most of the wiggles songs - too cute. but thankfully all the Wiggles toys have off switches (whew).

Paparazzi? They sure were around alot this past week

Mimi! I want to thank YOU for the pajamas. (they're really cute and comfy too!)

and a bit sleepy...

and a lot silly!!

Thanks Cousin Blake for letting Nathan borrow your dinosaur costume. I think he pulled it off pretty well. What do you think?

We went to a pumpkin patch and lost Jacob. I had to settle for this cute little pumpkin we brought home instead.

I think it is becoming evident (as if there was debate in the first place) that these two are brothers. Last week was Jacob's 4 month check up. He weighs a whopping 19.1 pounds and is 27.5 inches long. Yes, the doctor gave me a lecture on lifting heavy objects so i won't hurt myself. I looked back in Nathan's baby book. At his 4 month check up he weighed 19 pounds and was 27 inches.

Sometimes, it gets a little scary.

It's cute, he likes to chill with brother while he's waking up from his nap.

So what do you think? Brothers?

Great Grandparent Fun! and other fun pics

Over the past several weeks, we have been fortunate enough to see almost all of the boys great grandparents (with the exception of aaron's grandfather who we will hopefully see over the holidays) Below is Nathan, Jacob, my Father, and his mother whom we affectionately refer to a Tub.

This is Jacob with my mother's mother, Mama Dixie
(or as Nathan calls her, Dixie Mama - way too cute).

Jacob with my mother's father, Papa Joe. He is tickled pink to have two great grandsons.
Aaron snapped this pictures after cries of "Help" and "Stuck" brought him running from another room. I think the toy box must have tried to eat him.
This picture is for Mimi, who if i remember correctly, sucked her fingers like this as a baby. I guess it must be genetic? I just thought this was cute. I had to get up in the middle of reading a book to Nathan to check on Jacob. I guess i didn't get back quit enough b/c he proceeded to continue without me. I totally love this kid! (please disregard the mis-matched pj's. We, on occasion like to particpate in a "Mis-matched Jamma" Night aka Mom didn't get all the clothes washed. what does he care? He's 2!)

New Pictures

It's been too long...i'm sorry. But look i have beautiful children (forgive me now?)

He was following a cat into the cabinet. I opened the cabinet up to find this and was promptly told to close it back.Playing with little brother on the floor.

We love bath time! Nathan is actually in the tub next too him, but i couldn't get a "G" rated shot. I did however get some good shots to show to future girlfriends!
Nana bought a beautiful new rocking horse which we all love.

Grandpa made the night by putting us on the roof of the van instead of in the car seat. He wanted to ride home up there, but I decided it wasn't the best idea - too many bugs.
Sweet baby boy
