Tate's Christmas program

Today Tate had his Christmas program at preschool. It was pretty cute and I thought he did a good job. (in past years he has sat down, not sang, picked his nose, or run around the stage)

Something's missing........

Today Tate lost his first tooth! He has been playing with it (gross, I know) for about four days now and while he was talking to aunt Carol on the phone it fell out and hit his tongue. He pulled it out and started screaming! He was so excited. Tonight he wants to hide the tooth under the doormat outside so the strange fairy doesn't have to come into our house......smart boy.

Let it Snow!!









We woke up this morning to find snow on the ground. It NEVER snows in Austin! The boys loved playing in it. Tate made snow angels and Grant liked jumping on the trampoline covered in white!

Northpark Trains

On Thursday David and I drove to Dallas for his company Christmas party. He had a meeting during the afternoon so the boys and I went with Carol to Northpark Center to look at the miniature train exhibit they had. The boys loved it, although Grant thought it was very loud. He kept one hand over his ear most of the time. Carol then took the boys over to Weatherford to stay with my parents for the night. It was so nice to have the night off and the next day was great too. We went to breakfast, the mall, and then saw Four Christmases. I highly recommend the movie for a light holiday flick. Thanks Carol, Mimi, and Daddo! We had alot of fun and were so glad you could watch the boys.

Gingerbread House
















I found a cute Gingerbread house kit at the grocery store the other day and thought "Why not start this tradition? How hard can it be?" Well,not really hard, but the our finished product didn't look exactly like the one on the box. I really think they used two bags of icing and lots more candy than what the kit had but it was a fun family project I hope to start as a tradtion and the boys loved it. Grant ate lots of the candy and Tate kept asking "when are we going to eat this?"
