Holiday Bowl 2009

Charles and Caleb had a lot of fun at the game.
Of course it didn't hurt that we won 33 to 0.

After the game they went down on the field.

Caleb was a little sad he didn't get to "play" with the players.
Caleb and Charles December 30th, 2009
We they finally got home at around 10:30 Caleb couldn't stop
talking about all the cool things he saw. Football Players, Little Red,
Parachuters, Girl Cheerleaders (actually the first thing he asked for
when they got there), Family, Fireworks, Trumpets, Drums, and more.

Pretty Pink Princess

Girls Night at "The Spa".

While the boys were at the Holiday Bowl the girls had fun at "The Spa".

Complete with a manicure, and pedicure for each.


Does anyone actually buy play-doh for their own children?
Nana and a friend of mine bought play-doh for the children.
After much convincing on their part and a clean living room
for me they lots of fun playing and creating.
Joy do you want me to send it up with Alexis? :)

Cleaned and Organized

Winter cleaning ~ Monday the children and I did a clean sweep (2 piles ~ keep and give away) of all of their toys. They have been cleaned, sorted, and put away. It is Wednesday and it still looks great... and yes they have played with them since then. We will see how long it lasts. While we were cleaning they would come across toys they have not played with in a long time... I made sure to point out that if they keep their toys organized they will be able to find things faster.
