Ski Doo Sled

The one big thing BigE wanted from Santa was a sled that looked like one of those snow things. "What's their name again mama?" Eventually we'd get to snowmobile? "Yeah!, one that looks like that." Sure enough Santa delivered so we took it out for a spin today.



Off we go!



Working the brakes at the bottom

Back he comes







Getting tired



This one's for you M!

The Oh Nine Christmas Party

Mama was running her Christmas party again this year. More swimming, followed by pizza, Little Ray's Reptiles and, of course, Santa.

After the swimming and pizza here are the boys checking out the animals. Turtles, snakes and some kinda lizardy crocodile. I didn't really catch the description as I was chasing Peanut out in the hallway for much of this.



Here's BigE getting his picture taken with Santa. What an amazing Santa hunh? Wow is all I have to say.


Peanut wasn't as interested in the festivities so she found her own fun. There was a pile of gym mats in the coat room. It attracted a few other kids and ended up being the nursery. When they weren't walking or running up and down the hallways.


Monkey was eager to sit with Baby Peanut and have his picture taken with her.


Mama didn't get a gift but she did get to have her picture taken with Santa. It will take a few more days for her to find out if she was naughty or nice.


And I can't go without a shot of that big turtle thingy.

Mmmmm Donut

Peanut got experience a chocolate donut thanks to Auntie Bevie on Saturday. At first she wasn't too sure about it. Which is a little odd because here 'goody sensor' is usually pretty good.

But the trooper she is Peanut gave it a try


I think the smile says it all!

Quote of the Day 84

Dada's in the kitchen when I hear a squawk from Peanut. I then realize that the TV has been turned off.

Dada: "What's going on out there? Why is Peanut upset"

BigE: "It's ok Dada, I just put Peanut in a timeout for turning off the TV"

I NEED Another Circle

BigE's class had a little activity the other day where they drew little pictures of family on circles to go with their picture. To put a limit on those the teacher said it was limited to only people who lived in the house. To avoid doing the entire family tree.

BigE demanded four circles. The teacher was confused and thought he only needed three. No I need one for my baby brother in my Mommy's belly. BigE was insistent and so the teacher agreed.

Someone is very excited.
