This picture was taken over a year ago and it is one of my favorites. Thomas is making a goofy face at James and James is looking at him with a furrowed brow. It pretty much sums up their relationship to date.

Thomas makes goofy faces and is always jumping around trying to entertain James and James is just mesmerized...taking it all in, running after and trying to mimic.

Now, they are truly interacting...really having FUN together. If they are acting wild and I walk in and say "what happened?"...James will point to Thomas and say "bubba" as if to tell on him. Sooo cute!

My wish is that their brotherly bond just continues to grow!!

Pick Yourself Up

Nothings impossible I have found
For when my chin is on the ground
I pick myself up, dust myself off, start all over again

Don't lose your confidence if you slip
Be grateful for a pleasant trip
And pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again

Work like a soul inspired till the battle of the day is won
You may be sick and tired but you'll be a man my son
Don't you remember the famous man who had to fall to rise again?
They picked themselves up, dust themselves off and started all over again

Joyful Bunny

I just found this picture of my bunny in the big batch I downloaded off of my parents camera. I love this picture of Stella. She must have picked out her own outfit...it meets her criteria of COLORFUL! But I love her face the most. That smile, the joy. She is climbing on her Papa and so happy.
Love my bunny!

Yep, count them.
Nine stockings were hung by on the stairs with care...Tony, Amy, Thomas, Stella, James, Blu, Cora, Driller and Blackie.

Thanksgiving 2010

Oh yeah, I am THAT mom. My boys are in matching outfits. I. could. not. resist. My mom bought the boys the same outfit and I thought today was the perfect day to show them off. Don't judge me too much....there is a sweater vest that goes with the outfit but it was too warm outside today to wear it:)

So Thankful For....

My Family!

Dancing Kiddos

Thomas was dancing with James tonight and I captured some of it on video. I think James is doing a hoe down:)

All of us, plus two young college girls, were seated at a table for dinner at Kobe.

Me whispering to Thomas: You are sitting next to a pretty girl.

Thomas whispering back: I am trying not to notice.

My sweet boy!

Glazer Children's Museum

Now that James has successfully stayed in Tampa without me (yay!), Papa and Gigi offered to take the three kiddos on a long weekend they had back in October. While they were there, they visited the Glazer Children's Museum. It sounded a lot like the Strong Museum of Play which we visited two years ago. The kids had a blast!!
