Christmas Lights & The Front Porch

No project would be complete around here without little helpers. (Baby D and Lil' Ruthie were napping while this excitement was going on.)

(The awesome photographs were taken by W)

Front Porch before and after.

Christmas Tree Farm

Our annual trip to the Christmas Tree Farm was today. B kept the video camera rolling and and W took pictures like a wild man. I wish I had taken a picture of him with the camera. He got some excellent shots.

Clark Griswold aka EJ always picks the tallest tree he can find! A woman watching him pick this one said, "Does it come with a squirrel included?"

Papa and Grandma picked out their tree too. Papa cut it down and then the big boys helped carry it to the barn.

The photographer's feet with the Santa bench.

Look at that sweet face.

She was watching Daddy pick out the tree. Do you suppose she was wondering how it was going to fit in the house?

The baby boys. They are way too cute in their hats and mittens! They were not impressed but I was.

9 months and 14 months

These babies are are something else! They are growing and changing so quickly.

Baby E is 9 months old and Baby D is 14 months old.

Baby E has recently started to pull up. He is so proud of his accomplishment. It has opened a whole new world of play for him.

Trying to photograph both of them is so hard! They are always on the move. 

Baby D is Mr. Big Stuff now! He is a walking fool. I have seen 5 babies begin to walk (so far) but it never gets old. It is so stinkin' cute to watch them toddle across the floor.

Big Brothers Q, B and W teach the baby boys all kinds of things. They were so precious playing cars with them tonight.

After I took the picture of the boys, Miss Ruthie said, "Okay, now me and Q!"

First Snow of Winter 2014-2015

The first snow is always so exciting! The kids couldn't wait to get out there and play in it. Baby D was taking a nap so he stayed cozy and warm inside. Baby E had to sneak out for a second to see what was going on. It was too cold for him to stay out for more than a quick look. They celebrated their first snow play with some tasty hot chocolate.
