Sissy changing her first Diaper

Sissy asked if she could change Mister's diaper, and I figured since he is pretty good and doesn't pee on you anymore that it would be safe.

I am sure Mister is gonna hate these pics when he grows up!

She had to end the diaper change by playing a little and biting his toes.


So we had a couple of chances this year to see Santa and make sure that he knew what Sissy wanted for Christmas. It was cute, she was always excited when we walked past him at the mall and would wave at him. There was also one time that she didn't want to take her picture with him, she told me she just wanted to give him a hug. She said that she had to be brave and take her picture with Santa so she could show Mister is wans't scary.
Here is the Santa we met at the Movies, i think he was the 3rd one she talked to this year so she was a pro.

I will have to scan the picture of both of them meeting Santa for the first time, it is super cute.

Christmas 2009

We had a wonderful Christmas this year and we were so happy to share it with Mema, Poppy, Uncle Sefie, and Dennis who were all up from Cali visiting. On Christmas morning when I got off work we opened gift at our house from Santa, it was lots of fun. Sissy was easily distracted after the first couple of gifts so we have a couple of gifts that she didn't open that we decided to save for her birthday, she will never know.
Here she is with her stocking, you can't see the other side, but it says "Dear Santa, have a heart." I know there was a couple times this year we needed to turn that around
Her she is opening her "Green" PJ's. She told Santa she wanted a green dress for Christmas, what she meant was the dress from the new Princess and the frog movie, which was $90.00, so she settled for a couple pair of PJ's and a shirt and a bag of the "Green" princess.

Here she is "helping" Mister open his stocking. She seemed to like anything he got better than her stuff.
Here is Mister enjoying his Mum-Mums, toy phone, and cars from his stocking. Notice his red cheeks, no he is not trying to have rosie cheeks like Santa, he has a cold....again

We got Sissy and Mister this table and chair set and put it out for them both to open, but Mister just wanted to crawl on top of it and play on the box. I don't know why we buy the kids presents, they would be happy with a box and some paper, we just don't learn :)

After we did our presents, I got to take a nap and then we headed over to Charity's house to open some more gifts and have some yummy dinner with family and friends.

Here are all the kids making graham cracker houses

#4 and #5 are here

I know I am behind on this, but the Mister now had 5 teeth. #4 came in last Monday, 12/7/09, and #5 I noticed was in on sat, 12/12/09 when he had his head back, laughing. We are still doing OK, and he hasn't really bitten me, but he did get Sissy. It was kind of funny, I must say...I kept telling her, he was gonna bite he if she didn't stop putting her fingers in his mouth, and she would say "it doesn't hurt", until 1 day she starts screaming in the car, because he had bitten her. I know I shouldn't laugh, but it was kind of funny :)

Snow Fun

Well we had our first big dropping of snow this weekend, and it looks so pretty. Of course Sissy loved it, and the Mister actually enjoyed being pulled around in his sled as well. We took the kids and the neighbor kids over to the common area behind our house and let them sled down the hill, they loved it...their little screams were so cute. Steve was busy trying to make a snow hill so that the hill could be steeper, because that is what 3-5 yr old need, right, a steeper hill. I am sure in a month or two I will be ready for some warmth, but right now I am loving it.

#3 is here

The Mister's 3d tooth has finally arrived, I am actually posting this a little late, his tooth came in on Nov. 11Th. Pretty much the whole time we were in Cali he was fussy and running a fever, my mom kept saying as soon as we got home he would be OK and she was almost right. On our Long drive home I gave him my finger to chew on when he was fussing and to my surprise there was another tooth on the top. My mom was only half right though, although his tooth did finally come in, he was still sort of fussy and still coughing, so I took him to the Dr. a couple days after we got home. The Dr said that he has double ear infections (poor guy), and it looked like he may have had them for a little while, so that could be part of the reason for his unhappy self. Hopefully the meds. will help both the ears and the cough, but it seems like his 2ND top tooth is on its way in already so he is still gonna be my fussy man,(only at night, of course).

Our Trip to Cali

Well the kids and I recently took a trip a trip to Cali by ourselves, without Daddy :(. We had lots of fun seeing everyone and spending lots of time with Friends and Family, can't wait for everyone to come and visit us, up here in Boise. Here are some pics of some of the things we did, I forgot to take my camera everywhere, so some stuff was missed, sorry.

Sissy, tried to pack her bag by herself, it had only shoes.

We went to the Apple orchard with Katy and her kids
