This is Will about to make a funny face even though I told him we were done w/ funny faces.

A little attitude...

I finally started to get some cute smiles out of these two on camera. All it took was Will being a little naughty. He was banging the bench against the wall. I knew it wasn't the best idea, but I allowed it for a few pictures.

Uh oh, he tipped the bench over. It was time to quit.

I took these next four pictures w/ Hannah's four year picture in mind. One of these is going to hang on the wall. I just can't decide which one. I'm partial to all of them for one reason or another, but I know none of them are professional. If you have a favorite please let me know. Oh, and sorry about the absent rotation. I did rotate them; it just didn't carry over for some reason.




You know when you are busy doing something, and suddenly you have a little panic attack because you realize it's silent? Never a good sign, right? Well, for once it was a good thing. Hannah was "putting Will to bed. "

Am I a mean mom for posting this? Will loves to stomp around and follow Hannah and they both love to wear Dad's & Mom's shoes more than their own.

This is what happens when you abandon commen sense, and put two cake mixes in a bowl meant for one. I know I read online somewhere that it took two cakes mixes. I just can't find any evidence after the fact. So, four cakes mixes later, we got our Snow White cake & cupcakes.

Both of my kids really loved to hold their new nephew.

Will didn't want to let go.

She really doesn't need curlers, but she wanted to put them in for fun.

Painting w/ pudding.

I really wasn't going to let my boys dress up, but he doesn't stand much of a chance w/ Hannah for a sister, and sadly to say, "princess" & "dress up" are part of his daily vocabulary.

Opening their Valentine's package from Grandma & Grandpa Price.

Hannah insists on holding her "baby" brother even though he's almost as big as her. Today he actually let her for the first time in a long time.

As long as he could rock & do a little rough housing while she held him.

Surprise Giraffe

Ever since Will was a giraffe for Halloween, Hannah has been talking about it. She kept saying, "And I'm gonna be a giraffe too!" I hung the costume up in Will's closet. One night between dinner & the is-it-bed-time-yet-melt-down-rush Hannah was in a not so pleasant mood. She begged me to let her try the giraffe costume on. I tried to tell her she would not possibly fit into a 12 month costume since she is almost four. She persisted, as our kids usually do. Trent wonders if their persistence will be to their advantage in the work force, but on long car rides it has been known to drive him nuts. Any way, I finally said, "Well we can probably put the cotume in your arms & on your head, but not the legs cause it's too small. She was glad. So, we did just that. Then, I went to finish the dishes or something boring like that. I heard some grunts, groans, & squeals from Will's room. Then, the almost four year old giraffe emerged triumphant and proud.

This is what my windows looked like the morning of the blizzard. No, I didn't pick up the dry cleaning or do the much needed grocery shopping.

Trent did make it to work after a nice fellow pulled him out of the drift he was stuck in.

The calm after the storm. Notice the drift in our backyard? It was probably about five feet tall.

Enjoying the snow @ grandma's.

Hannah liked to throw snow @ Cooper, poor dog.

Waiting for Thanksgiving dinner.

The main cooks. Thank you, the food was delicious. You'll notice my stuffed mushrooms in the center of the counter

My family thought it was funny how much food I gave him. He's not laughing, neither am I. It's quite normal for him to eat large plates of food.

Clearly, everyone was so happy that I took this picture. Most of them tried to look happy, but can't you just see the annoyance seething? I love it!

Trent brought the kids gifts from his business trip to New Orleans.

We had a wonderful break, but it feels good to get back to a more regular routine.
