While I was blogging . . .

After writing the comment about taking more pictures I looked around the room at what my kids were doing and decided there was no better time to start taking pictures than that moment. While I was writing my entry about December Caleb and his best friend Isaac were “sledding” down the stairs on a box, which they have been doing most of the afternoon. That is something I remember doing as a kid and so I showed them how to do it a few weeks ago. Caleb has been scared to do it until today. He tried it once and it hurt a little. When I would ask him if he wanted a turn he would say, “Cara can have my turns.” Isn’t he a nice brother? He so much enjoys pushing her down the stairs and doesn’t worry a bit if she gets hurt.



Cara was putting on all of her jewelry. She helped Connie clean out her jewelry when Connie moved out and now Cara has a seemingly endless supply. (PS don’t you love the curls? My mom would be so proud. I have been trying to figure out sponge rollers. My mom put them in my hair every Saturday night until I was probably 10.) I guess the curls made Cara think she should get all dolled up. She told me “Colby is coming”. Colby is Connie’s boyfriend who Cara has a not so secret crush on. It is funny how things change I remember Connie being in love with my boyfriends.



Andy got this darling exer-saucer from my mom when he was born. (Great baby gift!) Anyway, I put it together today. He can’t reach the floor and his head bobbles a little, but I think he likes it. It won’t be long before he can use his cute little hands and reach.

Cute, cute, and cute. Thank you for the great updates! I love little Cara and her "Chinese" speach (vuna?). I loved spending time with you guys too! Thank you for being in Preston so we could all be together.

You Christmas sounded perfect! I love Cara's hair all curly. How cute that she already has a crush.

Oh, how I wish Sadie would let me use sponge rollers in her hair. She is very anti.
