January has been lots of fun!

Sydney loves Mimi!
Read Sam's really "fits."
He never stops moving...
Grandma and Grandpa got Sydney and Sam an easel for Christmas. Sydney spends hours drawing with chalk. Sam spends hours running away with the chalk, laughing all the way. He also likes to take little nibbles off of it, giving him multi-colored drool.

Sam showing off his strength for the girls...he pushed Maycie and Sydney all over the house, and into the walls and into the table...
Syd and Sam look forward to seeing their friends every Wednesday night, when we have study group. "Dora Saves the Mermaids" was a big hit with the kids.
Sydney helped Daddy wash the truck. She insisted on rain boots and a rain coat so that she wouldn't get all wet.

Happy New Year!

Sydney and Sam had their first New Year's Eve party. They invited lots of friends and had tons of fun! There were games and crafts; food and treats; balloons, party hats and noisemakers; a Curious George pinata; and one BIG mess! We celebrated the New Year at Midnight EST/9pm PST.

Fun in the Snow!

We went to La Porte the day after Christmas to play in the snow. Sam had never been to the snow and he really liked it. He wanted to walk all over the place! Sydney was worried about falling into a hole. We got the kids all bundled up and put them in the back of the truck while we got everything ready. It was 26 degrees that day.

Daddy pulled Syd and Sam around on a sled. They loved it!
After playing for a while, we took a break for lunch. We had a picnic in the back of Daddy's truck.

Christmas Day

Sam got a new Bounce and Spin Zebra and had lots of fun on it Christmas morning.

We spent Christmas Day at Mimi and Grandpa Larry's house. Sydney and Maycie played ring around the rosies until they were dizzy! Sydney and Sam love to play with their cousins Roah and Maycie.

Christmas Eve

We spent Christmas Eve at Grandma Billie and Grandpa Frank's house. Sydney had lots of fun opening gifts. Sam just wanted the bows. After all the presents were unwrapped, I found Sydney wandering around the house. I asked her what she was doing. Her reply: "My looking for Jesus 'cuz this is his birthday party."
