A month gone by...

I know, I know.... I've been gone awhile. We have been kinda busy.... depending on what you think busy is... Rather than try to tell you all that has gone on I'll just give you a glimpse...

Tommy being his silly self. This boy gets funnier and funnier, and I usually have to remind him to keep his tongue in his mouth.
Remember the Nerf gun the husband got for Christmas?????He got the boys to help him with target practice.... yeah, don't ask. The husband managed to miss the target ever time and hit the boys instead.... really can you blame him, it was just to easy...

The dog has been here... and there, he has taken up walking himself around the neighborhood, and that means we have to go look for him. Now what I want to be doing at 8:00 in the morning, but what do you do?

We went and visited a light house. The Ponce Ilet Light House, which is the tallest light house in Florida.
There are 203 steps up to the top...
And the boys... even Tim climbed every one... by themselves. We passed many older kids that were complaining that they had to walk up all the steps... I was might proud of my crew!!

The husband has been making bullets.... yup... making his own ammo. He is quite proud. It's actually pretty interesting on how it's done, and so far they have all worked how they are suppose too. {ie: no accidents}

James fell into a tree. The tree won.

The husband had a birthday....boy, he's getting old :) At a might 32 years old he's looking pretty good!

Can you see it???Look again... this was from our little balcony. Yup... that's an icicle!!! In Florida, in January!!!! It was really cold, and here is the proof!

And today we went to the beach. It was a little cold and a very overcast. It was a nice day.

Tommy enjoyed the beach very much, and was happy to have the sand between his toes again.

James was happy too... after he got the sand out of his eyes. I was able to talk him out of using the ocean water to wash his eyes out... one day he'll be thankful.

It was a good day to chase the birds on the beach... what am I saying... it's always a good day to chase the birds. I'm sure the birds love it....
Today is also a good day to let you all know that we are expanding our family. Yup, there's a bun in the oven. See I told you I had a really good reason. I have been really blah, and very unmotivated. the husband has such a great help, and the biggest being just closing his eyes to the messy house and the bland dinners.
So that's it... that's the news. Hopefully soon I'll be back up and... I'm just going for vertical, but we'll see. Thanks all for sticking it out I'll try hard to update more often in the coming weeks.

Well... yes is did hurt to fall off the face of the earth for a bit.... but I do have a really REALLY good reason!!! Only you'll just have to wait to find out. Don't you love the suspense???

Well here is our Christmas celebrations...{with lots of pictures.... but I think they are worth it}

Tim was a bit tired on Christmas Eve. This boy can sleep anywhere.... anytime
As you can see....Poor boy. {but what a funny picture}

Our Christmas Eve tradition... decorating a ginger bread house to be eaten Christmas morning. Here is James and his big eye look...
Thank you Grandma M. for the jammie pants!!! {and pillow cases... the boys won't sleep on anything else :)}

My beautiful boys! {being nice to each other}
Oh, Christmas morning

James has been asking for 3 years for a violin!!! And this year he got one, boy oh boy, this kid was happy!!

And this boy too was in heaven! He got stacks and stacks of Geo-Tracks {thanks to ebay and great finds!}
Tommy got Cars Mac Trucks. I love seeing them so happy to get what they want, no matter how silly I think it is, they love it and that makes me so happy.

Here are the boys Christmas morning... after the presents. The boys are required to have a muffin, and a piece of fruit, then they can have anything else they want. So they are pretty much on a sugar high the whole day. Thanks to the candy canes that Santa brings, and the ginger bread house, and all the other goodies they find.

We had a lucky find.... This is Swim, he is the husband battle buddy from Iraq. He is in a new profession {don't ask.... if I tell you I'll have to kill you and that would take too long and just be way to messy} Anyway he had a couple days off and couldn't get home to his family so we had the pleasure of his company, and the boys really did love it.

Remember the ginger bread house.... it was pretty picked through by 10:00am

One of the family gifts we got was a Wii. So we all have taken turns playing.... and here is Tim beating up Swim in a boxing match.

Tommy showing me his new talent....he can make a whole in his muffin. So if anyone needs a muffin whole-er, I know one.
Our traditional Christmas dinner. Homemade pizza. The husband flips it and all. This year was ever so interesting.... I totally ruined the dough!!! So I went out on a trek to find some, and I even hit up a pizza truck at Walgreens. But to no avail.... I can attest that everything is closed on Christmas... But here comes my knight in shining armor, and the husband saves the day and pulled it off wonderfully!!! {look how yummy}

Over all Tim had a great day!!!! As did we all. I love Christmas time. I love spending it with my family and our traditions. I love the good friends that we have and I love my wonderful family.
Here is to the new adventures...
