Christmas 2010

This was what the tree looked like at 5:10am when Zac got up! Santa brought Tyler a pillow pet and Zac Mariokart for wii
Zac LOVED his stuffed Sonic that he found in his stocking!
We have rather non traditional Christmas dinner tradition of cheese fondue! We were lucky to have Laura and Eric join us. And my parents were in from NY to spend the holidays with the family.

Tradition lives on....

I can remember quite a few Christmas' as a kid where I got sick for the big day! That nasty tradition seems to be living on. Zac hasn't felt well for two days now. He's had a fever and then last night came down with croup as well. We took him to the doctor this morning and he has the flu in addition to the croup! Caught a picture of him sleeping on the couch. Not that unusual to most parents but VERY unusual for Zac. I actually don't think he's ever done that before! Hopefully with some meds he'll be better in time for Christmas morning.
Grandma got the boys their favorite monster trucks as ornaments for the tree this year. This just seems SO wrong to me!

And a funny picture of Shadow laying in the drier! I'm sure it's only a matter of time before I accidently turn it on while he's there!
And a completely seperate funny moment:
We were sitting around the breakfast table and I gave Tyler something he had asked for AGAIN and as I did, I called him 'Your highness'. He turned to Grandma with a serious face and as he pointed to his front, he said "This is my penis" and pointed to his bottom as he said "and this is my highness" Grandma just about peed her pants!
Hope you all have a HEALTHY and very Merry Christmas!

Boys with Santa

I took the boys to the mall last night for some fun and shopping and Zac HAD to see Santa! Tyler wasn't so thrilled with the idea. He told me he didn't want to go in there. I tried to explain that he should tell Santa what he wants for Christmas but he wasn't having it. There was no line so I couldn't turn it down! Once Tyler saw Zac up there and Santa talked to him, he was feeling much more confident. He sat up there, smiled and told Santa what he wanted! Mommy was very proud!

TX State Fair 2010

We made our annual trip to the State Fair this morning. Last year I remember wearing sweatshirts but not this year! It was about 80 degrees and beautiful! The boys enjoyed rides:
Cotton Candy
Corny Dogs

Standing next to Blue Thunder!
And Zac's favorite was the games! He won Pikachu and was SO thrilled!
Here they are going head to head in their Buffalo Bills jerseys which earned some questioning comments!
Mommy and Daddy were tired out and poor by the end!

Animals make me laugh

We put up the Halloween decorations and I thought it was cute that Shadow the 'black cat' liked the spider hanging above our table so much!
Gotta love the spunk of a kitten! Scaring a 75 pound Boxer away from his own food bowl!
And climbing right in...
I love Jake's look here: "A little help please!"
The boys LOVE Shadow!

Balloon Fest Plano 2010

Tom was out of town but I braved waking the boys up early and taking them down the Balloon Festival because they LOVE hot air balloons!
We watched the balloon glow first.

This was what Mommy would have liked to have been doing!
I sware they both make the goofiest faces whenever I ask them to pose for pics!
They both really liked the lady bug balloon

Big day

Zac lost his first tooth tonight! Funny story: He was eating an ice cream bar and didn't want any more cuz it was hurting his loose tooth. I told him to give it Daddy and checked out his tooth. He didn't want to try and pull it. He wanted to wait and just let it fall out while he slept! Ha ha ha! I suggested that he take another bite of the ice cream so he went over and asked Daddy for one more bite. He came back over to me chatting away and I heard Tom groan. He had taken another bite of the ice cream bar after Zac and bit down on his lost tooth which had come out in the ice cream! Zac didn't even know he had lost it!

He's pretty excited!
And we got a new addition to the family. We adopted a three month old kitten from Petsmart! Zac named him Shadow and I think the boys actually tired the kitten out playing!

Tyler's first day of Preschool

Tyler has been anxiously awaiting this day for two weeks now since he watched Zac go to school. Finally it was HIS first day of school!

For a comparison, here was Zac on his first day of preschool in 2007!
Both of my boys going to school!
