Leaves of fun!

SO here I am in my quiet house, everyone asleep, and I can't get to sleep myself! So I decided to blog some pictures since I am so terribly behind!

These are from the 21st over at G&G's house. They made this huge pile of leaves for the boys to jump in, and they just had a blast. This went on for 3 or 4 days, until it rained and it was one big pile of yuck! There were more cute pictures the first day, but we took them on G&G's camera and I don't have them yet. They had so much fun and didn't care that is was FREEZING outside!

I win!!

Here's a quick video of us all hyped up about the snow! I love it, if only for Noah's comment saying "I win!!!!" He caught a snowflake and declared that he won! Ohhh, the mind of a 3 year old!

So of course everyone already knows last week that is snowed in Houston, but I just had to share out pics anyway. The kids absolutely freaked out - I think cause I just started running around the house screaming! I just grabbed them up, found the keys to the back door, and ran outside. Poor kids didn't even have shoes and jackets, but they were sure excited. Well, at least Noah was. Wyatt didn't really know what to think of it - he was just happy that he actually got to go outside, since he had been asking all day. Little did we know that this was just a small taste of what was to come, cause that night we drove up to College Station to go to Santa's Wonderland, and they had over 2 inches! I'll share those pics later this week - I just love them!

I don't even know how I'm going to deal with Noah now that he has seen snow. He asks me all the time "when it gonna snow, mom?" and I have to explain that is doesn't snow in Houston. He thinks that cause it snows on Caillou that it snows everywhere! Now that God has decided to prove me wrong, that poor boy is waiting for more!

Random pictures!

So here's a few random pics from the show - just for those of you that can't watch the videos! (That means you, mom!)

Away In A Manger

Here's Noah "singing" Away in A Manger with his class. My heart just melts each time I watch this cause he looks so scared he might puke! We laughed and laughed cause after the show we got in the car and Twila Paris was on the radio singing this song - and Noah got so excited and said "they recorded this?" He really thought it was his class singing on the radio!

Something about that name!

Here is Noah's second song they sang - you can see not a word came out of his mouth! But he did do some of the hand movements teeny tiny down at his side so you can hardly see them. So adorable!

My Birthday, Jesus' Birthday

It's hard to believe, but little Noah J had his first school Christmas program last week. He was positively the most beautiful thing I had ever seen! I felt terrible cause the poor kid was sick as a dog, with a sore throat and a fever, but I made him go. After we missed his Thanksgiving Feast cause we were camping and he is STILL waiting for it to happen, I just knew he couldn't miss this. We all thought he would either never make it onto the stage, or he would cry the whole time, but he was such a big boy! He didn't sing anything, but he did do most of the hand movements. Here is a short clip of the first song they did - Noah J is right in the middle in the argyle sweatervest. Oh my goodness when I watch this I just want to eat him up!!

Momma's tub!

Like I said yesterday, I let the boys take an afternoon bath in my tub, and they were just tickled to death. I gave them extra bubbles and cups, so it was a dream come true! They are so funny in that tub cause it's so deep and I let them fill it waaay up, so they really swim around! And then when all the water drains out they do this crazy slipping and sliding thing in the leftover bubbles. I love it and would share pics but they have their bits and pieces hanging out! :)

Our fireman!

So Noah isn't too too much into dressing up and pretending. I think it's the clothes - he just has to take them off after a minute cause it makes him nuts. But back on the 3rd he was out playing in the back yard and came in and asked if he could turn the hose on. It was hot so I figured why not, so he was one happy boy. About 10 minutes later he came back in and asked for his fireman costume - even the hat!!! I could not believe it. And that boy stood out there and put out fires for close to a half hour! He was having so much fun. He came back in drenched and cold so we immediately hopped in the tub to warm him up! To make a mid-day nap seem more enticing I let the boys have it in my bathtub, which is possibly the most exciting thing to those two. I'll post those cutie pie pics later this week!
