Christmas 2010

What a fun-filled Christmas this year. Not only did we have a great Christmas, but we had a white Chrismas. It snowed all day and I loved every second of it! We began the morning at our house opening gifts, driving new cars into walls, and playing with Nana and then headed over to Aaron's parents for more fun. Here is our day in pictures!
Paxton just waking up from a long winter's nap!
Kellen waking up from sugarplum's dancing in his head!
Cars and Tricycles for everyone!

Thanks Nana for the cool cars!

Aaron's grandmother, Mamaw, gave the boys the most adorable 1938 car replica.  It is so cute, and has little pedals on the inside to make it go!!  Now we are home with the car one of the boys is always sitting it!
Aunt Shannon (Aaron's sister), Me, Aunt Jenny (A's aunt), Mamaw (A's GM), Lynn (A's Mom), and little Pac man in the bottom right!

Say Ahhhhh...
Paging Dr. Paxton Nash...

And we ended the day with some snow fun, a new Shrek movie, and a delicious whole prime rib made by Grandaddy!! 

Christmas in Rewind

My Christmas wish is that every year I get a picture of me and P&K at the end of Christmas Day in front of my in-laws fireplace.  I dont know why I want the end of the day, there is never any make-up left, dark circles for days, and red wine stained teeth...but I love it anyway!! Last year was a total success...I guess this year we can call a 50% success!!  Better luck next year!!!

Christmas Eve

We hosted our Christmas Eve dinner this year after church, and had so much fun.  Aaron made his famous rack of lamb with yummy sides and I made miniature molton chocolate cakes for dessert.  The whole thing was yummy- delicious.  I didnt get many pictures but here are a few.  Aaron's Aunt Jenny brought Christmas hats for everyone to wear, too funny!

Christmat Lights

There is a subdivision in Brentwood that goes all out with Christmas lights, even a Santa sits in front. The homeowners let you park and walk through the lights, such fun! Kellen ran right to Santa, so cute. And we got a great picture with their Aunt Shannon.

Christmas Cookies with Nana

The boys made cookies for Santa with their Nana, and they were quite good!  Not very attractive, but very yummy!!

Our First Xmas Program

Aaron and I attended P&K's first Christmas Program this morning.  It was adorable and HYSTERICAL!! The toddler class marched in at the beginning of the program with jingle bells and attempted to sing Jingle Bells.  SO CUTE!  Below is the video, all minute and half of it!!  That's right, after their parade in they squirmed in our laps while the big kids took over.  So Paxton is in green and Kellen in red, Paxton danced ALL the way down the aisle and on stage while Kellen just stared at everyone.  Luckily, neither of them saw us while coming down the aisle...most kids saw their parents and refused to go any further!  Aaron and I are still laughing just thinking about Paxton shaking his moneymaker down the aisle of a sanctuary!!!  Warning: not the best video, I was having to dodge 30 parents to see the boys!!!

Without question,
this is the sweetest child
you will ever meet.
He gives me kisses, hugs and pats me on the back everyday.
I just love him to bits.

Paxton fell on Monday and hit his eye on the coffee table.  He has a big boo-boo on the corner of his eye.  The past two days Kellen will go up to Paxton and say boo-boo, point to his brother's eye, and then kiss his boo-boo.  Melt my heart.

I have a question. Is wearing a potty on your head as a hat a sign you are ready for potty training? Sigh. I didnt think so.
And in even lighter news...An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

This kid is just TOO much sometimes, but he cracks me up ALL day!

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas!

We got several inches of snow yesterday and the boys LOVE it! We went out and played twice yesterday, and once today. And I am sure as soon as naptime is over we are headed back out! They have mastered the art of throwing a snowball and making tracks in the snow. I am usually ready to come back in after 15 minutes, but I get a very loud NO, and heads shaking when I try to bring us inside. I am starting to look forward to ski trips!

I took the first video yesterday, the snow was still coming down, but we had a blast outside. My hubby was doing everything he could for a laugh and the boy's were dying out laughing!! Silly daddy!!! The second video I took today of the boys perfecting their snowball, seriously so cute. I call them my little "Ralphies" (The Christmas Story) when they are all bundled up, with pink cheeks and nose...I could just eat them up!!!

Happy 'Early' Birthday Party!

We celebrated K&P's birthday early this year with a party last night. Their birthday is December 30th, a very difficult time of year to get a group of people together!! Family and friends joined with us to celebrate these two precious lives, and we had a blast. Trains are the boys new love, so we had a train themed party. Aaron and I bought the boys a Thomas and Friends train table and family and friends filled it up!!!  NOTHING has ever held their attention for so long. Thanks to everyone that came out to celebrate! We really appreciate everyone that traveled and made the extra effort to be a part of P&K's special day.  We LOVE YOU!
P&K's cake turned out so cute!! I wish I had this kind of baking talent! You can see their birthday invitation behind the cake!

Poor Kel got tangled in a group of balloons at the very end of the night, he FREAKED!!! So naturally instead of untangling him I went and grabbed my camera!!!
