Recent Happenings!

Just a few things that have been going on lately:

Jackson's life was made when a family at Church gave us a set of Spider Man sheets. He played on them for hours after I put them on his bed.

On a side note, I think this picture of Jackson strongly resembles my brother Jared when he was young and excited.

We had an early out snow day last week and had an impromptu pizza party picnic! The kids loved and I loved not cooking!

Can you tell who is ready to say the prayer???

In the midst of all the freakishly cold days we have been having there has been the occasional day in the 50s when we have been able to play outside.

We like to go to the local skate park to run around.

Christmas at the Harveys

Just some fun pics from Christmas at my parents house. Jackson and Brady had tons o' fun with Grandma Jenny and Grandpa Joel.

Grandma's house has cool toys.

My mom and I got to make rolls together!
Have you ever seen such beautiful Peppermint Bark???

My mom made chocolates with the boys!

Brady approves.

Oh There's No Place Like Home For the Holidays!

We decided to put another 3,000 miles on our car this Christmas and drive back east! We drove to visit Ike's brother in Wisconsin, surprised my mom  and family in West Virginia and then went on to New Hampshire to spend some time with the Carr family! Oh and we made a pit stop in Ohio to see my brother and his awesome wife on the way home. It was an excellent trip!

A few fun pictures from Wisconsin! 

Cousin Joseph. So stinkin' cute!
 Cousin fun!

 Jackson loves snow.
 Brady, not so much.
Throwing the ball around!

 Happy Early birthday Ike!

 Joseph's  Christmas present! Dino-Joseph!

Jingle All the Way!

We are just a little excited for Christmas.

It's amazing what some quilt batting, red pajamas and a red cardigan can do for your Christmas spirit.

First Snow!

Who doesn't love that first big snow fall? There is just something so cozy about being inside a warm house and looking out your window at a snow covered yard. That plus all the Christmas stuff just makes me feel so happy. I think Christmas trees are the best anti-depressant. If I am feeling down I just have to look at our lit Christmas tree and I feel happy again. What is it about this time of year where everything really does feel magical?

 Snow Angels!!!

P.S Sorry for the lack of posts last month. Jackson accidentally broke my camera. I guess that is what I get for letting my three year old play with it though.

Little Monsters

Jackson recently discovered Monsters INC and Monsters University. He has been playing monster  a lot lately. We made these masks the other day and I actually threw Jackson's away yesterday because he was wearing it 24/7 and scaring people (like at the post office). So we returned Monsters INC to the library and got some Thomas movies instead. I have no problem with him "toot toot"ing at people in the grocery store.

The Boys

Ok so I have been busy and I am sorry but not more retroactive posting! I have to keep moving forward or I will never be caught up!!!

My mom sent the boys new PJ's this week and they are adorable!

I think this picture accurately depicts how excited Jackson was.
Also during this photo shoot I noticed that Brady has my eyes! I know you might be thinking I am a lamo mom for just now noticing this but he has halways had grey/blue eyes! They must have changed a little more because his are definately looking green! Mine are still a little more green than his but I think he definately got my eyes!
 Also, I am trying to make my eyes look big so I can see the color. I don't usually make such a creepy "I just stole this baby" face.
Definitely from my gene pool.
