Card Photo Shoot

While we were at the Double Eight for Thanksgiving I put the boys in their new Christmas pjs and had a little photo shoot in an attempt to get a good shot for our Christmas card.
One of these three will be on the front of our 2009 card...
but I'm not telling you which one!


Reason for the Season


Today we had a long day of decorating for Christmas and getting the house in order. Shayne is traveling a lot for work and since I can't really lift anything, we only had today to get all the decorations out of the attic, put out, and empty boxes put back up. It didn't seem like I was going to be able to get my part done and I was really overwhelmed. In the midst of my frustration, Cole asks me to come upstairs for a "surprise." I put him off for a few hours until finally, in the dark playroom, I sit down and he pushes the button on his Fisher Price nativity set and it shines a light on the baby Jesus. "Isn't that the best surprise you've ever seen?" he asks. Indeed, it is! Thank you my sweet boy for reminding Mommy what's important!

Ozymandias Recitation

Travis' 2nd grade class learned Shelley's sonnet Ozymandias as a compliment to their study of Egyptian History. They recited it as a group in assembly this morning, but I got a private performance for the sake of video. Unfortunately, I congratulate him on a job well done before the actual end of the poem comes. Disregard my voice :( I think he does amazingly well!
