A very late Christmas post...

Molly is sporting the tiara and earrings that Michael got her for Christmas. This was Christmas Eve after church when we let them open one present. The sweetest part of Christmas morning?

Even with all of the presents under the tree, they insisted they dig out what they had gotten us FIRST. They went shopping with some Girl Scouts at a "Santa Shop" earlier in the month. Instead of tearing into all of their gifts, they wanted to give us ours first, so they could see how happy they made us. We wouldn't have cared if GARBAGE was in those little stapled bags they gave us. Molly gave me a "lovely" jeweled pen, and Mikey gave me a bracelet. He gave Chris a tablet and pen with the American flag on them ('cause he knows that's Daddy's favorite flag) and Molly gave him a Christmas tree photo foam frame. After we "ooooh" 'ed and "aahhhh" 'ed, THEN they were willing to open the rest of the presents. We couldn't have been prouder.

They got Leapsters for Christmas and have turned into teenagers overnight. They would sit and play those things all day if we let them! Molly's other favorite present is a My Little Pony ice cream truck and Mikey's is his Rubik's cube. They got lots of neat gifts from lots of people and started their Thank You notes today!

Some old pictures of Mikey, too.

Here is Mikey when we went to visit my mom and dad for the month of Dec. 2002. Chris had finals at AFIT, so Mikey and I went down and moved in for an entire month! I was already quite pregnant with Molly, so the help was appreciated.

Then, in March, we went to Roanoke to see my dad's mom. It was the last time I saw her, so I was glad we went and took Mikey. Look how pregnant I was with Molly! Oh, those were the days.... ha ha.

Fast forward to Molly's first birthday. I think the noise was too much for him. In this picture he was 2 and almost 1 month.

I looked for decent pictures of this week, but I don't know how they are labeled on the computer, so I'll have to post it later.

This one will work. Here they are with Mark the day before Thanksgiving.

Ok, I really do have to go clean up anything today. Just anything. :-)

The Loser Blog

I'm sorry I haven't blogged in ages. My mom and dad came to visit, which was incredible amounts of fun, thanks for asking! I, of course, being the Great Blogger that I am, took not one single picture the whole time they were here. I suck.

The tree is up, the presents are bought (although not wrapped or shipped to the people they go to!), and Christmas is coming. Oh, that reminds me of the funniest t-shirt I saw downtown.

So, Teresa (my college roommate), Rey, and her boys came for the weekend. We went shopping downtown to this t-shirt store. It is green and has a picture of Santa on it. His mouth is open, and his shoulders are bare. The t-shirt says "Santa is coming!"

I've laughed about it since Saturday. It STILL cracks me up!!

The Preemie Club

My friend from England, Debs, brought this to my attention. Check it out.

My mom and dad are here visiting, so I'll post a real blog entry later!
