Little Tree for Little Men

I thought it would be a great idea to get the boys their own little tree. That way they could decorate it, they could mess with it and the ornament would be theirs. I was hoping this would take some pressure off of the nice tree. I also thought the boys would find this fun. I would have to say I was wrong. They really had very little to no intrest picking out the ornaments, they only decorated the tree for a little bit then it was just me and Jacob. I wanted to get a picture of the finished project but I never really did because the boys were always tearing it up. I think next year it might be better...we will see.

Another year and another Thanksgiving with either no pictures or one crappy picture. I don't know why but I can't ever seem to get it together for Thanksgiving. Anyway...we went to Tressa's house had a super yummy dinner, hung out for a while then went home. The boys made these super cute turkey legs hate which Liam loves (but you can't tell from the picture). It was a wonderful holiday. Jacob was there however he was behind the camera catching with super awesome picture!

Eli's First Trip to the Dentist

I was told once Eli turned 3 he needed to go see a dentist. As Soon as he turned 3 I started looking for a good pediatric dentist. I was having a hard time deciding on which would be the best. Then I went to my dentist Dr. Snow and I talked to the people down there about it. I realized Eli didn't have to go to a pediatric dentist and he could just go to the same place as me. (I know that is crazy it took me so long to figure that out, but I honestly thought he would be so scared if it didn't look totally kiddy and cute). Any way I had already gone so I made an appointment for Jacob to go and Eli to come watch. Everything went so smoothly and Eli loved it so much they ended up cleaning his teeth the same time as Jacob's! He was so good and did everything they asked. I would say he was even too comfortable, because he kept talking while the lady had the stuff in his mouth! He was a funny kid and a great patient. He got some toys which he loved for about a minute, but hey his teeth are clean no cavities and I saved a bunch of money by not sending him to a pediatric dentist. SUCCESS.

P.S Eli liked getting out the sugar bugs, and now he very concerned about making sure we brush them all off everyday.

Sports Class

As I already posted when Eli started school I signed him up for a sports program too. The whole season I was not allowed to come in until the last day and then I got to come in and see everything he learned and take pictures too. The boys were extra wild since the parents were there (now I can see when we are not allowed in there) however the boys had so much fun and were super cute. Eli's favorite things were running after things and probably football. However each sport he found something he liked. Liam also got to join in a little on basketball and the obstatical course. He just loved following everyone around and copying them. Eli also did a sticks and kicks class which he really loved.
