Merry Christmas!!

I hope all of you had the Merriest of Christmases! I'm sure we will. I'm writing this at about 11:30 PM on Christmas Eve. I'm at work, getting ready to go home and wait for Santa to come to our house :)

Rob took a picture of the kids right before they went to bed in their new pajamas and sent it to me so I could see it. The picture turned out so cute. At the last minute Buster popped into the frame, I guess he wanted to be in the family Christmas picture!!

Enjoy my cutie kids!

Yep, good ole Washington County got a snow day last Thursday. It was the most snow our area has seen in 3 years. I think the kids had fun having an unexpected day out of school and playing in the snow. I think Max enjoyed it the least, though. He spent the least amount of time outside than the other 3 kids and at one point he fell down and came stomping in the house, yelling "I hate snow and I HATE winter!! It is cold!!" I looked at Rob and laughed and said I wasn't surprised it was Max throwing that fit!

Here are some pictures
These are the oleanders out front. When they don't have a ton of snow on them they are over 6 feet tall!

Jake thought the snow was pretty cool!

I didn't get too many snow pictures, because, well, dang it!! Snow is cold. And wet. And outside. And I didn't want to go out in it!!

I'm not ready.

For my kids to grow up. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad the days of night feedings, diapers, sippy cups and all that stuff are over for me, but it also makes me sad. Oh, well, there's not much I can do about it, right?

So, tonight I dropped all the kids off at Jan's (my mil) house on my way to work. She wanted to do something with them and she had the day off, so it worked out well. Rob went over there sometime after that to pick them up and ended up on Jan's computer. Then he started to IM me. It's easier for me to IM with someone than talk to them on the phone while I'm at work. (I heart IM!) Anyway, after a while Jordyn saw dad "talking" to me and wanted a try. So, he let her and she started typing away!! It was fun and interesting. Even Max piped in with a "hi mom" Rob didn't even really help Jordyn, she just did it herself. As I'm typing this I wish I would have copied, pasted and saved what she typed to me so I could post it here. I guess I'll do it next time, cuz I KNOW there will most definitely be a next time!! I'm sure it won't be long before all of them are IM'ing me all night.

Another funny

This ones from Max. We went down the toothpaste aisle and I parked the cart in front of the kids mouthwash. Jake must have been playing with some bottles, cuz I heard Max saying, no, Jake, put those back, those are backwash! It took me a few times to hear him say it to realize what he was saying. It was so dang funny!

He's bilingual. Kinda. We'll thank Dora.

I was just sitting here at the computer, reading some blogs, eating my egg sandwich for breakfast. Jake came up to me asking for a bite. I gave him one and he went away. He came back a minute later asking for another. I told him if he waited til I was done eating my sandwich, I would make him an egg. He had eaten breakfast earlier and I hadn't, so I didn't feel guilty eating in front of him. He went away again, but was back within a minute. He stood next to me saying "abre, abre, mom" I turned to look at him and saw him standing next to with his mouth wide open like a baby bird waiting for his bite. It was so funny!!
