Christmas at my sister Holly's house.

Christmas 2009
Here it is already March and I am just getting around to posting about Christmas. In my defense we have had a terrible winter. Blizzard after Blizzard, and I can't update the blog from home because we only have dial-up and it doesn't work. We had a huge blizzard on Christmas-we never left home-we couldn't get out, which was nice. We finally made it to my sister Holly's house on the day after Christmas, then to Jeff's mom's the next day. We had another blizzard on New Years'.

Otis hoping that someone will put a dirty plate in the dishwasher.
Matthew decorating spritz cookies-right before he fell off the counter.

Snow Dayor Mess Day (also my sister Holly's birthday)
Yesterday we had a blizzard -a medium sized blizzard according to Matthew-he is still holding out for a big one though. Jeff was able to make it to work but it was a snow day from school. I stayed home from work and cleaned up messes all day long. Matthew wanted to frost sugar cookies (always a messy job no matter what age you are). I cleaned up his mess when he was done and then Alex decided he wanted to do it, so then I cleaned up another mess. Later on Matthew and I decided we should make some different Christmas cookies-the cream cheese spritz kind-yep another huge mess. Matthew manage to fall off the counter and take a pan of decorated uncooked cookies with him-he was ok but you guessed it another mess. Plus Otis (the dog) must of got a couple of the uncooked cookies and threw-up twice-so I had two more messes to clean up. Then Matthew wanted a glass of juice ( have no idea why since he isn't allow to have juice because it causes instant diarhea) but he managed to drop the jug of juice in some partially set up jello which splashed all over him and the fridge-bright red jello. So Matthew got a bath and I cleaned up the mess in the fridge and the mess from him taking a bath. For some reason, this boy (who was deathly afraid of bathes when we first adopted him) thinks the tub is a pool. I also had to get Matthew dressed in snow clothes four times because it was too cold to stay out for very long. I was exhausted by the time we put the boys to bed.
Even thought the day was lots of work I am thankful for the memories we made playing in the snow and making Christmas cookies together.
Today they are back at school but it was negative 12.5 when they got on the bus. I must be a southern soul stuck in a northern climate because I just hate the cold.

Matthew is now 6. He weighs around 35 lbs and is 3'8" tall. He has grown a lot lately. He loves school, playing outside, being read too, watching Alex play the wii and is learning to read. He also learned to ride a bike with no training wheels.
Alex is 11.5. He weighs around 95 lbs and is 4'10" tall. He has also grown a lot lately. He was wearing a 10 when we adopted him last year and a size 5 shoe. He now wears a 14 and a size 7.5 shoe. He loves sports, following Jeff around the farm, and playing with Caleb.

New Photos
Katie and Grandma-My grandma moved to assisted living. They are having a door decorating contest for Christmas. Family member have to decorate the residents doors, so Katie picked the idea and we decorated with her help.
This was almost our Christmas picture

Matthew in his Christmas concert outfit.
Levi is wearing an outfit Matthew wore when he was three. Levi is 18 months. I didn't think Matthew was ever this small. (Levi looks mad but I think I startled him)

More concert pictures-you can't really tell but he is wearing cowboy boots.

Matthew's Thanksgiving paper for school. I am thankful for the cake my mom makes.

Another sleeping Matthew photo---I think he is adorable!

Look what Otis did!
He likes to lay on my PJ's while I shower. He climbed inside of my sleeve and got stuck.
I felt bad for him but couldn't stop laughing. It took Jeff and I both to get him unstuck!
