Like Mommy, like boys!

Tom traveled a fair amount in early December but knock on wood, he is done with that now at least until the new year! Needless to say, the boys have had a lot of time with Mommy and Mommy got pretty stressed out here and there!

I made some cookie dough for Christmas cut outs and Zac loves to help out! Here he is 'helping out' with licking the beater!

And Tyler is talking like crazy now and repeating EVERYTHING! This morning he and Zac were fighting over 'helping' me with making frosting and I was telling them to stay out of certain things. Tyler all of sudden said, "Mommy, driving me nuts"! Wonder where he ever heard such a thing!!!

Some of his other favorite sayings right now are:
"Tywler do it"! (Tyler do it)
"Wook, Wook" (Look, Look)
And when he's standing in front of the Christmas tree "No touch. Just wook"

Guess we need to work on the "L" sound!
This makes him look like a magician but he's really just dropping his toy snake!

Grandma and Aunt Gail arrive like 'Cousin Eddie' in the RV!

Grandma Pam and my Aunt Gail have been driving from NY and heading down to Brownsville, TX in a small motorhome. They've been visiting family along the way and we were their latest stop. They stayed for the weekend and enjoyed the boys. We went to downtown McKinney for a Christmas lights parade (and I forgot the camera). I had too many warm clothing preperations to worry about! I am out of practice and proud of it! It was 38 degrees outside that evening! We also celebrated Grandma's birthday and she got a photo op with both boys! They look so thrilled but really enjoyed the visit!
Tyler is REALLY excited about something!
Zac giving Grandma love!
Tyler's turn!
And who would have thought that you'd see Tom cleaning the plaster off the sides of a pool in below freezing temperatures in TX? I don't think Tom did!

First Snowfall in Texas!

It's pretty rare that we see snow stick to the ground at all here in Texas and even more rare for it to be this early in the season. The boys loved it of course but I was just reminded that I am thankful that I don't live in NY anymore! This was all before Zac went to school at about 7:45am!
