Thanksgiving Feast - November 25, 2009

Ken was lucky enough to be able to go to Adam's Thanksgiving Feast at his new school. He loves his new school and has such a good time. In typical Adam fashion, he wouldn't wear his hat like everyone else. :-)

Polar Express - November 20, 2009

I think riding a train to the North Pole has quickly become a Baumhoff family tradition. In fact, we rode the very first ride of the season this year. We had so much fun. Even Andrew enjoyed it until Santa came around. When Santa appeared, he was done and didn't want any more to do with him. Adam on the other hand was a real champ. He sat in Santa's lap and told him exactly what he wanted. We've started to realize that this may be the year that Andrew will not have anything to do with Santa. Oh well!

If you are in the Chattanooga area and haven't done this ride on the Tennessee Valley Railroad you really are missing a treat. We love it and so do the boys!

Brothers - November 1, 2009

I love how much the boys are enjoying each other these days. There is an occasional disagreement when they want to play with the same thing, but it isn't anything that we can't handle. I love to hear them laughing and chasing each other. It is so much fun around our house these days.

Halloween 2009

October 30th was the boys last day at their new school. After Andrew being bitten multiple times we decided to move them back to Primrose. This was their last day at Discovery Point. Ken went for their Halloween party and the boys had a great time.

You would never know the boys moved schools. Adam and Andrew are so happy at their new school and not once have they asked about the old school. It really is quite interesting. They've just fallen back into the routine. We are so happy back at Primrose. We have very happy children who love being at school and are so happy when we pick them up. It really is a night and day difference.

It was a tough decision to move them to a different school, but in the long run we know that it was the right decision.

Petit Creek Farms - October 28, 2009

One of Adam's last activities before he changed schools, was going on a field trip to Petit Creek Farms. It's in Catersville which isn't too far from our house, but we had never been there. Luckily Ken was able to go with him. I think they both had a great time. It is such a neat place. I loved looking at the photos.

University of Alabama Homecoming - October 17, 2009

We had a great time at homecoming this year. Ken marched in the alumni band and they had a lot of people on the field. Hopefully one of these days they'll have more than are in the band. It's been a great year for Alabama football so far and we've had a great time watching and going to games. Homecoming is one of our favorites. I can't wait to take the boys one of these days!

Disney on Ice - October 15, 2009

I decided that Adam was old enough for us to have a date night. So, we decided to go to Disney on Ice at Phillips Arena. We had such a great time! I actually went ahead and paid for VIP seats and we were on the very front row, on the ice. Adam was so cute watching everything. He was a perfect little boy and I couldn't have asked for him to behave any better. I was a little nervous about taking him downtown all by myself, but we had a really good time. Of course, I'm such a big Disney fan that I think I had as much fun as he did!

Adam in Cherub Choir - October 11, 2009

Adam is singing in the Cherub Choir this year. I love it! I'm not so sure he does. Their first performance was on October 11th. I can't wait to see their Christmas performance. He is so cute and does such a good job, but he says all the people in the congregation scare him. I can understand that! :-)

Pumpkin Patch - October 9, 2009

One of my favorite things about our church is all the truly fun things they do. Each year we love going to the pumpkin patch. We've been going since Adam was little. This year he's big enough to help carry the pumpkin! :-) One day Adam started saying he wanted to go to the Pumpkin Patch and while we weren't exactly dressed for photos, we sure did have a great time!

Chic-fil-A Kickoff Classic - September 5, 2009

We were lucky enough for Alabama to play in Atlanta again for their opening game. Our seats this year were high in the Georgia Dome, but you could see the entire field and that was kind of neat. After we got to our seats, I never moved again. :-) It was pretty high up and steep. It was a great game and Alabama won! What a great way to start the season. We love Saturday's in the fall and college football.

Sips and Strokes - August 14, 2009

I had a great opportunity to meet up with one of my friends to go to Sips and Strokes. I'm really not sure painting is my thing, but it was a lot of fun. Christy and I have been friends for a very long time. We went to camp together, were pen pals for years, both of us have United Methodist preachers for fathers, and have kept in touch for years. It was so much fun to hang out with her and catch up. I've promised it won't be another 10+ years before we get together again.

First Day of School & Daddy's Birthday - August 10, 2009

The boys started their first day of school on August 10th at their new school. Even though I couldn't get them both to smile at the camera at the same time, it was a good day. We started with pancakes for breakfast and then off to school! It was also Daddy's birthday so we celebrated with chocolate cake that night!!

Editorial Note: The boys have now switched schools, more to come on that later. :-)

Sophie's Birthday Party - August 3, 2009

Adam had a great time at his Sophie's birthday party. It was at Monkey Joe's and he got to play with all of his church friends. He came home talking about what a great party it was. I love all of his sweet little friends!!

Rome Braves - July 30, 2009

This year for work we sponsored a billboard in the outfield at the Rome Braves stadium. As part of the sponsorship, we had the opportunity to have a suite one night at a game. Due to really bad weather during the day, the only people that went were Ken, the kids and me. But we had a great time!! I hated that my colleagues at work missed it, but it sure was fun. We think we'll be headed up to Rome to watch a few more baseball games.

Enjoy the photos!

Bath Time

I love that the boys are at the point now that they like playing together. We began seeing this some this fact these photos are from July. I'm still trying to catch up!

They had so much fun for bath time that we had to take some pictures. Little boys can be so much fun!!


This summer we decided to have a garden. We had more zucchini and tomatoes than we could eat. We learned an importnat lesson - no matter how much you like zucchini, you probably don't need 6-7 plants. :-)

Adam's favorite part were the sunflowers. I'm still amazed at how well they did. I think every bird in the neighborhood found them and had a ball with the seeds. Our deck still has sunflower seeds everywhere. Adam says he wants to plan lots more sunflowers next year. We'll have to see about that.

4th of July

For the 4th of July weekend, we loaded up and went to the beach. It was a last minute trip and I'm so glad we went. We stayed at Gulf Shores Plantation and it was the first time we had stayed there, but we had a fabulous time. Adam loves the beach! Andrew....not so much. He was perfectly happy to sit with me and watch everything, but he didn't want to be put in the sand and really didn't want to get too close to the water.

It was a great relaxing trip and Adam is already asking when he can go back!

It's the Simple Things in Life......

Aren't these the yummiest looking cupcakes! I read an article in the AJC about CamiCakes. So when I left a meeting at the Department of Education today, I decided to find Cami Cakes and get some yummy cupcakes, because after all, it is all about the simple things. These are just a few of their flavors. I'm glad it isn't too close to work or I'm afraid I'd be there all the time....above is Strawberries and Cream, Red Velvet, Peanut Butter Cup, Lemon Drop, Cinna Swirl and Classic Cami Cake. I can't wait to dive in later after little ones are in bed.

Yes, I know it has been two months since I've posted anything. That should tell you a lot about our lives right now. It's been a crazy two months and I hope I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, but some days I begin to wonder.

I'll give some quick updates and be on the lookout for a photo recap of the past two months soon. Let's job has just been crazy. We launched a new version of the GAcollege411 website at the end of July. Despite all the hours put in before hand and all the testing, things didn't go as well as anticipated. We are still working through some issues. But the site is incredible and we have received wonderful feedback from high schools and students and that it what it is all about. I've been traveling the site talking about the site and we kick off the training in September. I love my job and I love helping students realize that there is a way to go to college and to find the college that is the perfect fit for them. It is so rewarding but so very draining.

Ken is still job hunting. We're on month 4 now since he was let go from IBM. The market seems to be flooded. We are very fortunate and lucky on so many levels with how things happened, however I think we're all ready for him to take the plunge back in the job scene - especially Ken.

Adam is loving Pre-K. I think he misses some of his friends from church, but he sees a lot of them at Sunday school and I'm sure we'll see a few more when choir starts up in a few weeks. He seems to be learning lots and is always telling us about something from his day.

Andrew is also liking his new school. It seems like he is saying more and more words every day and understands a ton more than he is saying. I'm sure it will all come in time. At his 18 month check up the doctor said it was absolutely nothing to worry about that he is only saying a few words.

It was a very busy summer and appears that it will be a very busy fall. Life is good and I wouldn't trade it for a thing. I'll be posting photos soon! And, I promise to try and do a better job of updating the blog.

Vacation Bible School

Adam had his first experience with Vacation Bible School last week. Our church was transformed into Crocodile Dock and we had a great time. I took the week off of work and volunteered to work at the preschool VBS. I have never been involved in a VBS so large. We had over 600 kids and over 300 volunteers. It was amazing. The preschool VBS was held in our south campus and the older kids were at the north campus.

We had such a great time and Adam loved it. His best buddy from preschool, Tyler, was in his group and they had a great time together. We had a great group of kids and volunteers. I think every summer I'll take a week off work to work on VBS. It was probably one of the best things I've done in a very long time......

Water Table!!

So...I'm finally to photos from the month of June. In fact, these are from June 1st. We decided to get a water table for the boys to play in....needless to say they love it! It has been great fun and they love to play outside in it. Andrew loves to pour the water all over him and Adam is just happy to play outside.

Zoo Atlanta

We finally made our first visit for the year to the Zoo. It is kind of sad when you have annual passes and you still can't find time to go to the zoo. The boys had a great time and we got to try out our new wagon. It was wonderful! Both boys got to ride and could see and it worked great. We both said we wished we had thought of it earlier.

We were able to see so many of the animals up close and personal. The giraffes were closer than I've ever seen them before. The pandas were also out and playing in their area. Adam loved seeing the reptile house....and it wasn't too bad. At least it was air conditioned!

Both boys sacked out on the way back home but it was a great Saturday outing....


These photos are all from the last week of May. I can't believe how big Andrew is getting and all the things he is doing. He is our monkey and is into everything all the time! Every time we turn around he is climbing on something, standing on a chair, pulling things off everything he can reach.....He is definitely going to be our child that we always have to keep an eye on. He is pretty much always happy but he's also almost always into something! :-)

Adam's End of Year School Picnic

Adam's end of the year school picnic at Due West was pretty sad.....he won't be back there next year as he'll be attending a Pre-K program here. A couple of his buddies from Due West will be at the same school for Pre-K as well, so it wasn't too bad.

We had a great time at the picnic. The kids all got bug catcher kits from their teacher's and they had the best time playing with them in the field. We had pizza and cupcakes and cookie cakes and the kids were all on a sugar high. It was lots of fun, but a pretty hot day for May. We had a great time and are so fortunate that Adam has loved Due West so much. It is so wonderful that he loves our church so much. Anytime he hears us talking about church, he wants to go too! Below are some of the pictures from the picnic.

Andrew's End of Year School Picnic

So another year of Due West Preschool is over.....ok, so it has been over for more than a month now. I'm really behind in updating. Andrew had such a great year and totally loves Ms. Kelli! We love her too! Adam had her his first year at Due West.

Unfortunately, the day of their picnic, it rained, so we played inside. Andrew loves Due West and we are so glad!

New Roof!

Thanks to some wind damage a few weeks ago and courtesy of our home owner's insurance, we now have a new roof. They spent most of the day on Saturday getting it on and we are very glad very a very good and quick job. I've posted some of the photos of the damage and the new roof.....

Bowling and Mexican Food

Last weekend, we decided to take Adam bowling since it was pouring down rain. Little did we know it would be cosmic bowling and that bowling had gotten so expensive! Oh well! We had a great time and I'm glad we only paid for 1/2 an hour. Adam was done and ready to play video games after about 15 mintues. We had to convince him that he needed to bowl a bit longer.

And of weekend is complete without a trip to LaParilla our favorite Mexican restaurant. On this visit the mariachi band was even playing Sweet Home Alabama by request (not from us). :-) I have to admit, it was a first for us to hear the song played by a mariachi band.

Bruster's Field Trip

Adam's class had a field trip to Bruster's and Ken helped drive the kids. The Bruster's is probably only 1/2 a mile or a mile from the church, but they still had parent's help drive the kids. The kids got to see ice cream being made and then got to sample some and then got their own regular size ice cream cone. They had a great time!

Adam's buddies Luke and Tyler rode with him to Bruster's. Ken even took some photos of all of them in the van. :-)

Mother's Day Tea - Due West UMC

One of my favorite programs at the preschool at Due West is the Mother's Day Tea and Art Show. The kids sing a few songs, have created all kinds of art projects and have a special lunch with mom. I love having the opportunity to do this each year. This year was a little hard because I knew it would be Adam's last program because it is his last year at the preschool at church. We love the preschool and wish he could always go there....but it is time for him to be in a Pre-K program. Technically, he could have stayed one more year at Due West, but we need childcare that lasts longer than 9am - 1pm each day.

Here are some of the photos from the great day....Enjoy!

Grandmother's 80th Birthday

So, on April 19th we took off for Alabama for my Grandmother's 80th birthday party. It was a really short trip, but we were really glad we could go. We don't always do a good job of going to visit our family when we should. Here's some photos from the day.

Easter Weekend

Slowly but surely I'm going to get caught up with my updates. We spent Easter weekend at home. Ken played in the orchestra for the 8:15 and 11:15 services. I worked children's church at 11:15am. The church was packed! I always love services on Easter, but to ensure a seat we got to church at 10:40 and I was only sitting through the first few minutes of the service.

We went to the Easter Egg hunt at our church (there were tons of eggs), dyed Easter eggs, made sugar cookies and decorated them and just had a great weekend at home.

My favorite quote of the weekend was Adam got up to see what the Easter bunny brought. He found the basket for him, Andrew and Dad, but asked "Mom, where is your basket?" I told him I guess Mom wasn't good enough. Adam told me "Next year, don't break the eggs when we're dyeing them and he'll bring you a basket too." :) Out of the mouths of babes! :-)

Palm Sunday Weekend

So far Palm Sunday weekend, we packed up and headed to Jasper, Alabama, to visit with my parents.

On Saturday while Ken was at a meeting in Tuscaloosa, we all went to ride Thomas the Train in Calera. We had a great time...but somehow I didn't get a single picture of Thomas! Oops! I'm not sure, but Adam's favorite part might have been eating pancakes afterwards at Cracker Barrel.

On Sunday, we went to church with Mom and Dad and then went to their church Easter egg hunt. It was misting rain and a messy day, but the boys had a great time. Both of them came away with plenty of eggs and candy. We had a great time and had a great weekend.

Due West UMC Preschool Easter Egg Hunt/Party

This was the first of three Easter Egg hunts for Adam. Needless to say, this year, he was an expert at hunting Easter Eggs. Of course, they really weren't hidden that hard for a four year old to find. I was able to take off work to participate in Adam's Easter Party the preschool. I helped hide eggs with Ms. Dreyer. It was so windy and everything was yellow with pollen, but the kids didn't care. They had a great time hunting eggs and every child left with 13 eggs. They were so cute and had I loved being able to be there.

And, since we are catching up...this was on April 3rd. :-)

Grant's Birthday Party

Adam had the best time at his friend Grant's birthday party. Grant had a Tumblebus party and Adam loves Tumblebus. He loves it so much that he has done Tumblebus at Primrose and at Due West - so twice in one week.

Grant's party was at the end of March so we're playing catch up for a while.... :-)

We've Got Some Catching Up To Do

Wow....once again it has been over a month since I've updated the blog. I guess that tells you a little about how our life has been lately. I would love to say everything has been calm and that we're just in our normal routine, but that just hasn't been the case.

Let's see in April we celebrated Palm Sunday in Jasper, Easter was wonderful at home, a dear friend's wedding the weekend after Easter (where we did the programs for the wedding and I played the piano for the ceremony), my Grandmother Warren's 80th birthday party, roof damage from a storm and Ken was officially laid off from IBM. Wow - what a month. It was filled with lots of ups and downs.

We have Adam enrolled in one of the Georgia Pre-K programs and finally made it off the "waiting list." We weren't sure if we'd make it or not. It will mean a change of school for him and we'll move Andrew as well. They'll be at a private school that offers the Georgia Pre-K program and other daycare options as well. However, we took Adam to his new school the other night and he's been asking about it almost every other day since. Some of his friends from church will be there as well, so we feel really fortunate.

I'll be catching up photos over the next few days. I can't believe how much the boys are growing and how well they are doing. We are loving life even with all of its challenges. We know God is in control of all of this and that we just have to patiently wait to see what He has in store for us.

First Haircut

We finally took Andrew for his first haircut. He and Adam went for haircuts this morning at Pigtails and Crewcuts. They do such a great job and the boys both did a great job. Andrew sat perfectly in the fire engine. I can't believe it is already time for a first haircut....every day it is just a little bit harder to imagine how much he is growing up.

Pigeon Forge

Last weekend we had the best time! We spent the weekend in Pigeon Forge, TN with our friends the Fannings. I've known Susan since high school and we've stayed in touch all these years. They had rented a cabin in Pigeon Forge invited us to join them. We had a wonderful time and all the kids got along well and we're already planning another trip before too long.
Adam has already been asking when he'll get to see Landon and Lydia again. :) He loves having someone to play with.

Enjoy the photos!

Our Little Monkey

I changed the background of the blog to monkeys a week or so ago for a very good reason. We have a major little monkey around our house. Andrew is climbing on everything all the time. It amazes me what a climber he is because Adam never climbed like this. We have to watch him all the time to make sure he's not climbing on tables, chairs, etc.

Sunday, March 22, 2009

Andrew loves his food!

I must say one thing....we haven't found anything yet that Andrew won't eat. He is so different from Adam. He will eat most anything we put in front of him. So, we've said good-bye baby food, hello everything else. You just never know what he is going to pick up and eat. :)

My Birthday

I guess it had to happen and I had to have another birthday. It certainly beats the alternative! :) So this year my birthday was on Friday, the 13th. I decided with those odds, I had to take the day off work. It was a wonderful, lazy day. In my opinion, the very best kind! Ken did get one of my favorite cakes from Publix with raspberry filling and cream cheese icing. Yum!! My boys made this the best birthday yet!


I'm walking and I'm coming to get you! Watch out!!

What Can You Buy with $20

For Adam's birthday, he got $20 cash from Grammie and Grandpa. He was so excited because we told him he could take the money to Target and buy whatever he wanted. He must have looked at every toy aisle. We're trying really hard to teach Adam about money and what things cost so for him to have $20 to spend was really exciting for him.

So after much debate, he decided on cars. I'm sure you're not suprised. Not just one car - but several cars! In fact, several packs of cars.

Thanks Grammie and Grandpa!!

Happy Birthday Adam!!!

I can't believe Adam is 4 years old. I don't know where the time went. Sometimes I look at him and I can't believe he is my little boy. I know that it is part of growing up and that it happens with everyone, but wow. We celebrated his birthday for almost a least it seems that way. :)

On February 28th we had a party at Chuck E. Cheese with all of his friends from church. He had been begging for months to have a party at Chuck E. Cheese. This happened to be the weekend that it was pouring rain, so when we arrived for our 10:00am party it wasn't too bad. But, by 11:00am, the place was packed. There was not a single table avaialble in the entire restaurant. By 12:00, we were in the van headed for home. It certainly is nice to be able to go somewhere, walk in with a cake and have them do all the rest of the work, but what is even better, they do all of the clean up! :)

On Adam's actual birthday, March 4th, we took a cookie cake to school, which we had to bring back home. It had been processed in a facility with nuts...oops! We took back safe cupcakes. He got a few more presents and we went to his favorite restaurant for dinner - La Parilla. They sang to him and had him wear a sombrero. It was too cute.

On March 5th, he took Wall-E cupcakes to church to celebrate. By this time, we were just about birthday celebrated out. We were - Adam wasn't! He would celebrate every day if you'd let him. Enjoy the photos!

February was a Blur

February was such a blur.....I hardly remember it. In fact, was it really only a month ago? On January 31st, Andrew took his first 3 steps. February just picked up with more walking and falling. We celebrated Valentine's Day and went to Adam's class party at Primrose. Even though he doesn't usually go to Primrose on Friday's we took him on Friday the 13th for his party.

We made the very tough decision that Adam will only go to Primrose this fall. We've loved his time at the church and love that he loves our church so much. He'll go to Primrose full time and be in their Pre-K 4 year old class. He has so many good friends there and really does seem to love it there as well. We've been so lucky to have the kids in such great schools.

My job has continued to be really busy. I guess that's a good thing. We'll be watching President Obama's budget recommendations to see how that will impact my job. I hope that it won't, but if it passes to make all student loans through the direct loan program, I may be on the job market in the next year or two.

We also started the Financial Peace University at our church. This is Dave Ramsey's class. It is so good. We're in week 4 now and it has been a great experience. We have a few more weeks to go and are looking forward to the remainder of the class.

Here are a few photos from February. Hope you enjoy!

So behind....

Wow...I'm so behind and haven't posted anything in over a month. I can't believe it. I'll be catching up soon. I just wanted to let everyone know we are alive and well! Look for new posts and photos coming soon.

Andrew's 1 Year Old Photos

I still can't believe Andrew is 1 year old....we finally went this weekend and had his 1 year old photos made. We were only a week late. We absolutely love Portrait Innovations. They do such a great job and we had such a hard time picking out photos to purchase. Luckily, they give you all the shots on a CD so I can share a lot more on here than we actually purchased. Andrew decided to be quite the little superstar for his photo shoot.

Andrew's First Birthday

Andrew's first birthday was January 25th. I can't believe he is already one year old. I'm not sure were the year has seems like just yesterday we were bringing him home from the hospital.

We celebrated the day at my parent's house and invited all of the family to join us on Saturday, January 24th. We were so glad that Great Uncle Allen, Great Aunt Kathy, Great Uncle Neil, Great Aunt Margo, Cousin Abbey and Cousin Grayson game to help us celebrate the day. There is just something about sharing birthdays with family.

We had a great day!

Andrew's First Day at Primrose

We finally took the plunge and enrolled Andrew at Primrose. We love Primrose and they have done such a great job with Adam. Andrew's first day was 1/20 and he really seems to enjoy going to school. I think Adam enjoys his brother being at school with him as well (although I don't think we would admit it).

These photos are of us dropping him off that morning and then picking him up that afternoon. He is such a happy baby no matter what....we are so blessed.

Sleeping Boys

So I had to post these photos. A lot of you know about our dilemma with driving, Adam is a fantastic sleeper in the car, Andrew - not so much. He has gotten a little better as he has gotten older, but he still cries a good bit when we are in the car for more than 30 minutes.

After we landed in Atlanta from our trip to Texas and finally got in the van, we had barely left the airport when this is what we saw.....

Not just one sleeping boy......
But two sleeping boys!
So I guess all we have to do is get them up really early and take them on a plane ride. :)

San Antonio

While we were in Texas we went to San Antonio to spend some time with our friends, the Flummers. They were great hosts and the boys loved playing together. In fact, we're at the hotel tonight to go home and Adam wanted to go and play with Jackson some more. :) We are looking forward to their trip through Atlanta this summer.

Here's some photos from our couple of days in San Antonio (some were made today), so I think I'm about caught up on blogging now. We went to the Witte Museum, the River Walk and the Alamo while we were in San Antonio. We had a great time and look forward to coming back sometime to spend a few more days exploring Texas.

First Flight....

I had to take a trip to Austin, TX for a meeting at work. In the process of looking at flights, I discovered it was much cheaper to fly to San Antonio and drive to Austin. So, since we have some friends in San Antonio, we decided to all come. This was Andrew's first flight and he did great! (I hope he'll do as well on the flight home tomorrow) Adam had flown a couple of years ago, but he doesn't remember that.

Andrew's Favorite New Toy

Andrew got a wonderful new toy for Christmas from his Great Uncle Neil and Great Aunt Margo. I had never seen one of these's not like the typical stacking toy. It actually spins and plays music. I believe it is made by Lamaze. He loves it! Even if he isn't stacking it, he loves hearing the music.

So thank you very much Uncle Neil and Aunt Margo. We love it!!

Adam's Shopping Trip

For Christmas, Great Grandmother Warren sent Adam $20. Usually when Adam gets money, it goes in his savings account. But this time, we decided to let him take the money and go shopping. So we all loaded up and to Toys 'R Us we went. We had a lot of time and Adam was quite a good shopper.

Here is Adam showing off his $20.
And here we are after we found Thomas' Break Down Train....we were so excited.
Adam actually paying for his purchase. He asked us several times if he had enough money. He actually bought the train, a car and of course, some M&M's and even had a couple of dollars left over. He was a smart shopper!

With our purchases in the bag, we're ready to go home and open up the new toys!
All smiles with our new train.

Day after Christmas

So the day after Christmas we needed to do something to burn some least Adam needed to burn some energy. One of Adam's favorite places to go is to Chuck E Cheese so after some lunch we were about done playing. I looked around to find my dad with Andrew on the wave runner ride.....I know they rode it 2 or 3 times and Andrew loved it! Oh well...I guess we are just starting him early.

Thursday, January 8, 2009


Christmas was so much fun with the boys..... Of course Andrew was up at 7am ready to go. He certainly is not our late sleeper. So, when he started trying to tear into presents, we went to wake up Adam and Ken. :) We were all up early. Andrew had as much fun playing with the wrapping paper as he did the actual presents.

Adam loved his new racetrack and was so excited when Grammie and Grandpa got here. They came over Christmas morning and it was like Santa arrived all over again. We had a great day and then had cupcakes and sang "Happy Birthday to Jesus." Adam lead the whole song and he was so much fun.

They are at such a great age and we are having so much fun....


Andrew is getting to be such a big boy. He loves his bath time now that we finally took him out of the toddler tub. He had definitely outgrown it.

And who knew, now he has decided he likes the jumpy horse. We were about ready to try and sell it because he had only used it once, but decided to give it one more chance. He loves jumping in it!

It won't be long now....just a couple of weeks until he has 1 year old. This year has flown by.....
