Baby it's Cold INside :)

I got these adorable sweaters for the boys and decided to take some pictures of them in them. I didn't really PLAN on a "photo shoot" per say- but I saw AFTER we took them how funny the boys look. Check it out!

"Hello? Mom? Can we not take pictures right now? I just got out of the bath and I'm freezing."
(Also- notice the extent of my creativity. CONSTRUCTION paper stockings with the worst Christmas Tree I've ever drawn.)
 Can someone get this booger out of my nose? I mean, come on... I am FREEZING!"
Henry is so funny. He either has those somewhat blank stares on his face, or he's laughing at something Grant or Ben has done. And by the look on Grant's face, I wouldn't be surprised if that's why he's smiling in this picture. Glad I've got goofballs for children.
I love how different my boys are:
Dark vs. Blond
Pasty vs. Olive skin
Husky (though he's thinning out a LOT)  vs. Skin and Bones
Talks-O-Lot vs. Great Fine Motor Skills
Rocko Mini vs. Ben Mini
These boys really are the best. I love them so much. And I'm sure anyone who gets to spend 5 minutes in the whirl wind of their day love them almost as much as we do.

little men, man, and a snowman

We had our first snow over the weekend and our boys got a GREAT taste (figuratively and literally!) of it. Grant LOVES the snow- and Henry had somewhat of a hard time dealing. I think he was mad that it was hard to walk around. Hope you enjoy a glimpse into our Saturday morning snowman building party. Enjoy!! 

Oh, the JOY of cold cold cold cold snow.
"Really? You want me to LIKE this cold stuff? Eh- we'll see."

My favorite part about this picture is that you can tell we didn't finish raking our leaves. Haha. Later that night, I went to a friend's house who's snowman looked like perfection. Ours, while double sided (you'll see in a minute) was full of fall debris.
"Don't worry, Dad! I'll kill the snowman with my gold club!!!!"
Our snowman is about 7 ft tall. Ben did one side, and this is him sculpting the snowdude's face.
Here is the snowman that Grant and I made (or rather- that I made- as evidenced by Grant running away).
BAH!!! I love this kid.
And here is Ben's SnowDude.
Are you ready to ROCK!!!!!!?!?!?!?!?!
