Christmas in Longview

We had a great time up in Longview with my family for Christmas! If you can't tell Lars enjoyed himself:) We did miss Kim and her fam!!! We really wish they could have come too! We had lots of fun hanging out with Grammee, Papa, and Aunt Jenni. Not to mention the great company of Jenni's friend Todd and, of course, Jordan and Ava (our furry family)! We filled up on Dudley's (our fav Cajun resturant) and lots of Mexican:):)
One of Lars' favorite gifts is his cowboy hat (pictured on Papa:). He wears it without even trying to take off!

Lars and Pete

We always enjoy getting together with the Silverthornes when we go back to Texas! It's even more fun now to see Lars and Pete interact. They are only 12 hours apart! and Pete is one of Lars' only friends who compares in height! It will be interesting to see how tall these two end up being. We did let them go at it a couple times; Pete was taking Lars down, biting him with his 4 teeth, but Lars came back with a few good slaps in the face:):) No damage was done, no tears were shed. All just boys having fun!
I will say this is the second time we have watched a Cowboys game with the Silverthornes, both times the Cowboys were devastated by their opponent. I'm thinking we are really not helping the Boys by watching games together!

Christmas in Houston

Lars is really enjoying all the presents! He got the hang of ripping the paper off really quickly (if he didn't get distracted by the ribbons first:). We all made out big time! We got lots of great gifts and some parenting books which will come in handy (hopefully later rather than sooner). Lars continues to be a great kid! He has been a trooper with all his missed naps and new people to meet!
We hope you all had a Merry Christmas!

Eating in Style

Lars LOVES to eat!!! He is really enjoying getting to have fruits and veggies! He especially loves eating with his John Deere boots on (that his Aunt Kim sent him).

School or Britax Ad?

Last week Julie and I traded babysitting. It was very adventurous! This is a picture of all the kids in the back seat of the truck. We went to pick up Reagan at preschool and stopped at the McDonald's drive thru on the way home for a milkshake:)! We didn't dare get out of the car. I don't know how people have 3 kids and go anywhere!!
I'm considering sending this picture to Britax (the carseat manufacturer) so they can use it in an ad. Who has 3 different Britax carseats:)?

Jingle Bells

This is a video of Lars playing with a bell we had hanging on our tree. It is his favortie thing to play with right now! His fine motor skills are not completely developed, but somehow he managed to play with this bell for about 20 mintues and never hit himself with it!

Thanksgiving in New York

We had a great time in New York last week for the Thanksgiving Holiday! We of course ate WAY too much food, to start out holiday weight gain program:). Lars really enjoyed being around all of my cousins, aunts & uncles and GRANNY!! We are SO Thankfully to have such a wonderful family!
Karl enjoyed a fishing trip with my Uncle John! We got to eat his big catch. It was pretty good!
