Our church Christmas party was in early December and I was really sick, so Mark took the boys without me (yes, I threw myself a pity party while they were gone). Here are the boys and Mark at the party with good ol' St. Nick.
Noah was so proud of this gingerbread house that he made at school, so here he is holding it (next to our partially decorated Christmas tree). Don't you just want to smooch that face?!
I wasn't well enough to really celebrate on my birthday, but the boys still got this pretty little ice cream cake & sang to me. I loved the look of the purple glitter frosting :) This was the least-bad picture of me...and how cute is Noah?!
Mont flew home after Christmas, but Mary stuck for a few days to spend time with the boys and help out. I was determined to get out with her and the boys at least once during those days, so we went to Pump it Up! We took a water break after an hour or so & I decided to snap a couple of pictures...as you can see, Noah (with pout-face in full force) wasn't on board with the photo idea:
Raisins helped a little bit. Here I am with the boys.
A five second clip of the boys going down a slide together:
Noah ("not tired" of course) fell asleep one day on the stairs with his cowboy cape and hat:
And, speaking of cowboys...here's a clip of Lincoln singing a made up song "Howdy, partner" (without him knowing):
Noah really got into 'The Grinch' this Christmas and wanted to sing part of "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" for the camera (you really should watch this one):
And that's a wrap for 2010, folks! Wahoo!
