Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday!

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas! Blessing to everyone in the new year!

The first group photo is from the big Winston Christmas, and the second is from the Price Christmas. (PS...AMY! I forgot that you took the group picture at your house with your camera...can you email it to me?? Thanks!:)

Also, my little buddy turned SIX last week and was lucky enough to have two birthday parties (one with Queenie and Granny, and one at home). I can't believe how fast he's growing!!

Here is a cute little video of Annabeth playing Ethan's Ukulele...she's pretty cute! ;)

O Christmas Tree

Here they are! Pictures of our Christmas tree adventure! We now have our first Christmas tree sitting in the living room of our first house and all is right with the world. :) Ethan and I really enjoyed ourselves. Brandon was absolutely convinced that we had chosen a puny tree...until we got it into our living room and he realized what a big, fat tree it is! And Annabeth, the girl who loves to be outside and dirty, complained the whole time, "Mom! I'm cold and I'm dirty! Let's go home!" I politely told her that she was having fun and that she was going to remember these times fondly when she gets older. ;)

"Look! A little red tree!"
Annabeth "helped" Daddy by filling his wagon with all the log pieces she could find.

Belated Halloween

I know that this is way late, but I realized after I posted Thanksgiving pictures that I completely forgot to post Halloween pictures! Oops. So, better late than never, here they are...Batman and Batgirl!

Setting the table...

Annabeth at the Little Gym

A while back I posted Ethan's pics at the Little Gym, and now I finally have some of Annabeth. Here she is at her gymnastics class (with two little videos at the end). She loves it! As you can see from the pictures, she's still pretty cautious on the high balance beam (even with the teacher holding her), but she's finally getting brave on the low one! I'm really proud of her! :)

(These videos are so funny to me! Especially the second one...I love how she just waits there with her legs over her head until the teacher helps her! :D )

Ethan finally started soccer and is loving it! As am I. :) Here are a few pictures from his first two practices as well as a hilarious video...it's so funny because everyone chases the ball together and all you see is the big herd of kids chasing a little ball. Obviously they haven't figured out positions and strategy yet. :)

Petting Farm Fun

I took the kids to the fair today and we had a really fun time! :) I wish I had more pictures to share but I took them by myself and had to keep my hands free to hold theirs. But I did get lots of pictures at the petting farm, which was their favorite part! They loved the animals; Ethan's favorite was the little bunny and Annabeth's favorite was the chicken (which made me laugh:). There is also a short video of them trying to feed the calf. Enjoy!

Pictures Please??

I was wondering if everyone out there could go through their pictures for me???

I've decided to frame a picture of each of the kids with Brandon and I when they were babies. I was looking through mine and I don't have as much as I thought I did. I'm pretty happy with the pics of Brandon with each of the kids, but I could find very few of me. If everyone wouldn't mind looking through their pictures, I'd like Ethan and Annabeth to be as young as possible and I'd like them to be more candid than posed. Please, PLEASE send me what you've got of either Brandon or I! I'd appreciate it very much! :)

Also.... any pictures you have of me when I was pregnant would be helpful. Especially pictures of Brandon and I together.

Here are the pictures that I will most likely be using if no one has any others:

Annabeth --

Ethan --
And just because it's sweet, and one of my favorite pictures of them, I'll also be framing this one for both of them! :)

I'm back!

Yes, yes...I know I've been neglectful of this blog lately. I just haven't been taking that many pictures lately! Even so, I'll show you what I've got just so nobody thinks I've abandoned the blog :)

Ethan's first fishing experience...didn't catch a fish though :(
They caught a grasshopper!

Being silly at lunchtime:

Can I just tell you how proud I am that my kids love veggies so much?!!

We set up a maze of tents in the backyard:
