Fun In The Snow!!

We had a snow day Thursday. Gerald & I had the day off work. Evan had the day off school. Ben was down for his nap. We decided to go out in the yard & play in the cold white stuff! I'm not a big fan of wintertime. Too cold for my blood. But Evan loved it! Gerald & Evan built a snowman, made snow angels, even made a snow fort & threw snowballs at their newly created snowman. BOYS!!! 

Here are some photos of the day!

I don't know what it is, I just adore snowflakes. I think it's the individuality of them. Now, I'm not the biggest fan of snow, but I LOVE snowflakes. That doesn't make too much sense does it? Let's just say, I don't like driving in the snow, but I LOVE Playing in it. Okay, makes more sense. Anyhoo, here are some photos of snowflakes I took today.

Ben again...

I feel like I've been neglecting Evan on this blog. he's just in a phase where he's not diggin' the camera. Until it passes, you're gonna be seeing Ben photos. He likes the camera, most of the time.

Ignore my crooked horizon line, this is Ben on his rocking horse Mamaw & Papaw Layne got him for Christmas.

On A Roll...

I've been on a roll today!! Ever since Evan got home from school today, he & Ben have been playing. Ben goes wherever Evan goes anyway. Here's a quick snap of Ben & Evan together.

 And had to throw this one in of Ben...He's getting more teeth & his 2 bottom molars are just about to pop through. He's been handling it like a champ!

Another Photo Of Ben...

We all had a WONDERFUL New Year!!! Ben wasn't able to make it till Midnight, but he sure was a PARTY Animal!!! He has been getting hard to photograph lately. But I drug out my OCF & he was soooo interested in it, he allowed me to take some photos of him. I tried to get some shots of Evan, but he's in the funny face phase right now. he wasn't having a nice normal photo! Happy New Year!!!

Ben is a boy of few words. His vocabulary consists of a few words that he says regularly. Mama, Dada, & Da (Dog). He pretty much understands everything we say to him though. He does not like the word "NO". You wanna see a huge fit, tell him "no". You'll see one. But such as life. 
For Christmas he got this little doggie. The kind you pull along & it makes barking sounds. My Mother In Law got it for him. He absolutely LOVES that thing. He drags it all over the house & carries it everywhere he goes. He even tries to feed it his milk cup. He's got a thing for dogs. He even sleeps w/ a "Pluto" dog at night. Chewing on his ears helps him fall to sleep. 
Here are a couple photos of him I took today:

Here's Ben trying to feed the dog

Christmas 2010

My Christmas was WONDERFUL!!! I got a new lens, Gerald got garage tool stuff, the kids made out like bandits. I wanted to concentrate this holiday season to do things as a family that would help bring home what Christmas is about. Christmas morning we read out of the Bible, the story of Jesus' Birth. Then the kids opened their gifts. We had a WONDERFUL dinner & desserts galore. It was a WONDERFUL day to be together as a Family!!!
