New Year Up-date

Once again it seems that I am getting behind in updating the Kids Blog. So here are the photos that we have so far into this year all in one post.

For New Year's Eve we started last year having dipping chocolate for dessert. The kids just love it and it makes a huge mess.

Here are some of the photos from when we went to the smaller snow hill for Brendan to use his new snowboard. The photos turned out great given that I went & sat in the truck after taking the video clips. (It was cold out & I can't stay warm now.)

Everyone wants to know what is this Cuttlebug that Madelyn wanted for christmas? Well here she is with her cuttlebug. It is a die cut machine, which just means that it cuts these little shapes out of cardstock. She has a lot of different sets already & has even started to make her own cards. Start looking in a mail box near you shortly.

Cute Kids. Brendan & Madelyn get along so well together (well 95% of the time) this is what Brian caught them doing the other night. Brendan was reading & I think being the teacher to Madelyn in their room.
Also making room for baby means moving Madelyn's bed out from under Brendan's to make room for her big girl bed that she will get for her Birthday in about 2 months. And it made sense to move their tv up from the basement since they never used it down there & were always making a mess of toys in my room. You can see the mess is still here but at least the area to mess up is smaller & they do a pretty good job of picking it up every night.

POTTY TRAINING!!! Madelyn is finally potty trained!!! YEAH!!! She can now tell us when she needs to go potty, even when we are out shopping or something.
(She kept making silly faces at me)
And of course Brendan had to come and get in on the silly faces too. (He looks just so old!)
