Around the House

Are you ready for more pictures of my boys?  Here they come!  First, I have to show a picture of Jordan's bed all made.  One day, he came downstairs to tell us he had cleaned his room and when we went up to see what he had done, this is it.  He made his bed.  I thought it was too sweet for words.  He's growing up so much and more and more independent all the time.
Here's a close up of his pillow pets and one of our Build-A-Bear bears. 
It's funny now to think back to when I was pregnant and Jordan really wanted a sister.  They are such great brothers and it's obvious that they love each other.  Jordan is so kind to Danny and Danny just loves to see what his brother is up to.
Jordan is always able to make Danny laugh!
Danny is full of smiles.  He is just so fun to play with.
He's thinking more and more about crawling but hasn't started just yet.  I had to take this picture with the puppy dog on his butt.  I love baby clothes!
Not much else going on around here right now...oh!  Except for Idol did start.  I wasn't sure if I would like this season now that the judges are Randy, JLo and Steven Tyler, but I'm actually really enjoying it. I have always loved Jennifer Lopez.  She's just so sweet and fun.  Steven Tyler is actually very entertaining himself.  American Idol talks about people having some kind of spark or personality about them more than being able to sing and that is definitely what comes to mind when I see Steven Tyler.  Yes, he can sing, but he just seems like fun to me, and smart, too.  I'm excited to watch tonight!

Boys Being Boys

I realized today that I really am the only girl in this house!  I'm lucky to have three great boys who love me.  I am sure it's just going to get more and more fun as both Jordan and Danny get older...although I have lots of wrestling, sword-fighting, and dinosaur tag in my future!
 See the craziness I deal with love already!
 Danny is starting to push up on all hands and knees more and more. He'll scoot backward a little but just one little scoot at a time so far!
 Such a sweet, smiling boy!
Danny is eating lots of fruits and veggies already!
 Jordan was proud of his new truck...I heard a fairly long explanation of all things cool about this particular truck. 
 ...more about the truck...
 ..."just take a picture of the truck!"
Just a few pictures of my boys being boys!  Anyone up for a girls' night???

Christmas Rewind

Hello again blogosphere! I never posted any Christmas pictures.  I don't have that many, somehow I feel like I take a lot of pictures but then when I look at them they all seem the really can only take so many pictures of kids opening presents.  I do have a few cute ones though.  

Our Christmas tradition is to celebrate Christmas Eve with our extended family.  My aunts, uncles, and cousins all come over and we stay up until midnight.  This year my Grandma, Mamita, was here with us!  We love when she is here.  Isn't she sweet?  
Our midnight tradition comes from Guatemala, where my mom is from.  They stay up until midnight there and then light fireworks outside.  When they go back inside, Santa has visited and they open presents and eat tamales.  This picture is Mamita, Jordan, and my mom Skyping with my uncle and his family in Guatemala. How fun is that!?
Jordan loved all of his presents...and he got a lot of them.  He even liked his new Spiderman undies that were in his stocking! 
Santa also brought this mini-sandbox with all sorts of construction tools and gadgets to play with.  (This was a cool toy until we got it home and more and more sand is finding it's way onto the floor...although it does remind me of being on the, sand is bad!)

Jordan getting ready to open more presents.  I love his Christmas jammies. 
Danny just loved being around everyone and loves this seat toy my parents have.  Here he is looking into a mirror.  I love how enthralled he is.
 Jordan helped Danny open his presents.  He's such a great brother!  Of course, Danny love to watch everything his big brother does.
 Jordan squeezing out from under the Christmas tree.  He was a great help passing out presents.  This year, I printed out pictures of everyone and taped them onto presents so he could hand them out himself. It worked great and he was proud of himself.
 Every year since Jordan's first Christmas we get new pajamas on Christmas Eve so we can sleep and wake up in our Christmas jammies.  The boys had matching jammies this year...with skulls on them!  That's how it is with boys, never dreamed skull Santas would exist, but yes, they do, even for babies!

And that was our Christmas!  I hope everyone had a nice holiday, whatever you celebrate!
