It is tradition to take a picture of the babies in the their stockings for their first Christmas. I thought Ben would fit better seeing that he was born in November. Ummm no I still had to really squeeze him in!




And here are some cute naked baby pictures!

Snuggle Time

My favorite thing it to snuggle and nap on the couch with my babies. Here was such a morning.

I think she wanted a sister

Today Sariah really wanted Ben to wear her headband. I know he has the
hair for it but I wouldn't expect to see him sporting this look in
public. (sorry for the fuzzy pictures he wouldn't hold still with it
on. Not sure he thought it was as cute and sissy did.)

Bowling Master

Tonight, we were able to go bowling to celebrate a good friend's
birthday. This was the first time for Sariah. Here is her and daddy
bowling together. Looks like a spare!

Do you see the eyebrow? I think he is serious about wanting that pet
dino. Papa better get on it!

Hooked another one

It was so sweet that my niece Cassidy offered to read Sariah this
princess book during the Christmas party. I think Sariah can hook
anyone into reading to her.

My little reader

James loves it when Sariah snuggles up for storytime before bed. I
think he would read to her for days if she'd snuggle with him.

Well Ben was asleep

Odd fashion sense

Poor Sariah never had a chance at fashion.

Props to me

Okay I have to brag on myself a little today. I just ran 3 miles and
then afterwards walked another half mile at an incline.

Go me!

And go my kids for staying asleep while I did it!

As a side note of new body resolution point. I decided while I was
still pregnant that I didn't want to waste any time getting back into
shape after I had Ben. So I signed up for a half marathon back in
October. The actual race is in June. I started running on the 2nd of
January and this is my progress so far.

Just chill

I'm happy he isn't crying. But I guess tonight he didn't get the memo
that he should sleep at 2 am.

She's TWO

This was Sariah's 2 year birthday party. It was small. Just James and me and her. I wanted to keep it low key and it was just great. Fun to really get to enjoy her opening her presents and blowing out the candles. And blowing out the candles. And blowing out the candles....

So here is the first cupcake with candles. Sariah LOVED it! She thought it was the best thing ever. I had given James the video camera with it already running and well....he hit the button again turning it off.

So here is the redo second cupcake to be able to video tape it.

And then the next day we decided to eat the other cupcakes and by this point Sariah was quite sure that you didn't eat cupcakes until after blowing out the candles and singing happy birthday so yep we did a third time.

Below is the apron I made Sariah for her birthday. She loves to help me cook and does a great job stirring!
