Christmas Card pictures

I took the boys out to the bush today to try to get some pictures to use on our Christmas card. Dylan and Xander did really well but OMG is it ever hard to get a good picture of Ty. He just doesn't stop moving! Facebook refuses to let me upload them for some reason so I will put them all here. These are the pictures that didn't make the cut for the card, you'll just have to wait till Christmas for the other ones!

Thanks for looking :)

The wait is over

Xander finally got his Nintendo DS last Friday after waiting for months! He was not getting it till he was accident free for over a month. If you know me at all you know this has been something we have been fighting with for years with him. Any slight milk product and he ends up going in his pants. Well he finally got it under control with a little bribery on our part. But hey, you do what you have to do. Right?

Well we drove an hour to Walmart Friday and let me pick his DS out ( not that there was much choice since they only had one in stock) Who new the new fancy Nintendos don't come with games? So we had to buy him 2 games as well, thank goodness for the walmart bargain game bin! So he comes out of the store with a shiny new red DS lite. Lego Batman and Ben 10 for games, and a starter kit that comes with a case, extra styluses, car charger ( need that!) and screen protectors. I don't think bribery has ever cost me so much! But it worked and has continued working so I guess that makes up for it.

The next day Xander pulls out his DS and was not impressed that the battery needed to charge. So he waits three hours for it to charge and plays it for less than hour before he loses one of the games! Did I forget to mention he lost a stylus pen in the van on the way home the night before as well? Needless to say I was not impressed. Now it wasn't really his fault he has the extra game in his case and it fell out somewhere, but I was still mad that they make those things so small that they can be so easily lost!

That brings us to today. I take the kids to the bus and as I am walking back down the driveway what do I see? A small black case with a Ben 10 game in it! I don't know if it works, it was in a case but it was snowed on three times since Saturday. I am letting it warm up and will try it later but at least the case of the missing game is solved! That would explain why when I scoured the house and turned it upside down looking or it all weekend I couldn't find it. Oh and the missing Stylus pen was found on the floor of the van too!

Here is Xander chillin out on the couch with Hooch playing his new toy. And note the earphones? Those are to save what little of my sanity I have left!

Time for an update!

It has been a LONG time since I updated this blog. I am terrible at writing about my life and its just so much easier to put everything on Facebook. But I have decided to try and keep it updated a little more. Its not the easiest thing to do since any pictures have to be uploaded to Photobucket then transferred over to here which on dial up takes a LONG time. In other words don't expect a blog every night. LOL

Not much happens around here since the boys are in school all day, Bill is working crazy overtime right now and its just Ty and I at home all day. I am trying to get myself to take some more pictures so I can get some more practice with my camera. So there may be some weird things show up on here, but hey, I'm leaning!

My pictures today are of Tyler who has turned into a little monkey. he will climb anything and everything. I seriously don't remember the other boys climbing quite this much. Ty climbs over the baby gate, out of his crib, on the table, into boxes, bookshelves, furniture and window sills!

He started out quite happily looking out the window which he can easily get to by standing on the couch.

Then he got brave and thought he would get a better veiw if he got right into the window.

You will never guess what happened next........

He fell....don't worry he landed on the couch :) And then I got this look.

This would be the "Why are you still taking my picture instead of sucking me up " look!

He was fine but still proceeded to climb everything in site. Apparently at 19 months the lesson goes unlearned.
