Over the river and through the woods...

To Grandmother's house we go. If our kids only knew how lucky they are this year! We're celebrating Christmas on the 23rd before church...the kids are only 3 and 1.5...they'll never know the difference. Then we're loading them up in the car and driving to Utah on Christmas Eve at 4:00 am. We're hoping to make it to Murray in time for all the classic Christmas Eve festivities. Then we'll celebrate Christmas again on the 25th. Merry Christmas and we'll see you next year!

The weird things kids do

The past few weeks have been a "fun" time in trying to get Ethan potty trained. It's our first time through this phase and it hasn't been the best of times. While we are seeing great progress and some small setbacks, we have also been priviledged to witness some real gems. In order to appreciate this story there are a couple of things about Ethan you have to know. He has always been very sensitive to light and he LOVES his big boy underwear. We put him to bed last week while staying with the Meachams in San Diego with a night light in his room. A couple hours later when we went to check on him we found that he had removed the night light from the room and had also ventured into the hall and removed the one from there as well. Then we found him asleep like this. An absolutely instant classic. (Don't worry, the underwear was clean)
