Baby It's Cold Outside but Still Swimming

It may be cold out side but we had a great day swimming inside with friends.  Jamie and I met at the Plainfield Aquatic Center for a fun pool day with the kids.

The kids were so excited to swim.
The center was so nice and had lots for the kids to do and the water was warm!
When did these two get so big!  All of the kids had a great time together and they were all tired and ready for naps.

Sawyer stayed home with a sitter.  He found the goggles and wanted to know, "Did you go swimming  without me"???

Tom's Birthday

Tonight we celebrated Tom's birthday at home with our family.

We had Chinese carryout and played HeadBandz together.  Such a fun game and funny to play with little ones.  Parker basically tells you the answer each time.  He's so funny.  Daddy opened presents an we had chocolate cake.  We are all so thankful for Tom and are pretty crazy about him!

Christmas Morning

There really isn't anything better than Christmas morning.  We had some very excited little boys who couldn't wait to get out and check out if Santa came.  When we went to the family room together Parker started shouting he came he came he really really came.  He was the cutest thing ever, so full of joy and excitement.  He was so cute because he went to his brother's piles and was showing them they got what they had asked Santa for.  He was so happy.

Baylor was excited about his pile, but he couldn't wait for me to open my present from him.  He had circled a necklace in the Kohl's catalog early in December and gave Tom all his money and wanted to go buy it.  Tom took him shopping and they found the exact necklace.  He spent all of his own money and was so proud.  It was the sweetest thing ever,  I was ready to cry.  I love him!

He came!

Checking it all out!


Sawyer loved his ball popper.

And his new ride on!

Cooper's favorite gift was his own IPod.
Coop made this card for Baxter and got him a gift too.  How sweet.  Santa filled Bax a stocking of treats too.

Go Colts!

Sawyer was in the middle of the excitement.

Park loved his Bat Cave and spent time playing.

Coop got a new basketball just his size.

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve day we spend the morning at home baking cookies for Santa and getting our Christmas morning breakfast ready.  Baylor made the casserole all by himself.  Daddy was at work so we couldn't wait for him to get home.

Then we all got ready to head to Christmas Eve Service at church.

I love these handsome boys.

When we got home Parker and Cooper made sure they sprinkled our magic reindeer food all over the front lawn.  They wanted to make sure the entire ground was covered.

Then we headed to Mimi and Pop's house for Christmas Eve fun.

We sang Happy Birthday to Jesus.
Mimi went to so mud work and made everything fantastic.  The food was so delicious.
Love them all.
Katie and Adam.

Sarah and Baylor.

Sharmin and Sweetie.

Daddy and Baylor.

Tina and Roshan.
Sawyer loved all of his food.
This Baskin Robbins ice cream cake was a hit.  It was so good!

Pop and his pal.

Baylor and Mecwan.
Thankful to have Mama there.  She has had a rough time lately, she seemed to enjoy herself tonight.  I love her so.

Family memories.

Lots of love.
Singing carols.

Sawyer was busy dancing.

Love that we use my Grandma's song books.

Sweet times.
Sawyer knows Uncle Joe is a good singer!
Little elf.
Checking out Santa's village.  He loves finding Ho Ho.
Playing with Roshan.
Then it was time to hurry home to get ready for Santa.  The boys all wanted to make sure they got to see Elfie one more time for the year.  They had the best season with him.  

Ready for Santa!

After the other boys went up to bed, Baylor stayed back and held onto Elfie one more time.  Makes me smile, the magic is alive in this boy.

Santa hadn't come yet, but Daddy had my pile all ready!  I was so excited!
