One of the presents that my kids got was a hot wheels race track. Here is a picture of Josh trying to play on it while my step sister and I tried to put the stickers on.

Matt's grandma did this when he was growing up and I LOVED LOVED LOVED the idea that I did it when my kids were born. I put Josh's first hand ornament in the picture just to show you how fast they grow in six years!! These are HANDS DOWN (ha ha ha) my favorite ornaments on our tree!

Here is my day 3 of 7 days shot. Isn't this sign beautiful? I mean seriously- it brings tears to my eyes!! It's so awesome!! We are giddy with excitement (Well, Josh wasn't happy at all at first. He was refusing to move. But once we drove him by the new house we are moving into he gave his stamp of approval and is now excited along with the rest of us)....And our excitement seems to be turning into stress and overwhelming emotions with all that needs to be done...but overall it's all good! We are really happy!!

I took this picture with an ipod and used the FaceMan ap to make me look all bright and shiny. That and Matt shined a flashlight in my face for a tad more effect. hee hee

Tonight we were able to go spend the evening with Joe and Kassie- which is always a fun time!! We went to Valentinos for dinner then came back to our house to hang out a little more. It's a chatting, picture taking, ipod game playing, good time!! :)
Here is my Day one Shot:

Josh's doctor is really awesome and lets Josh pick out a stuffed animal each time he has surgery. And boy does Josh latch onto that thing for a day or two. He isn't one of those kids who has a security item so to see him attach himself to something is interesting to me. Today he chose a red cardinal. His name was Mack. Then it was Birdie. Then Reddie. Then Blackie. Then Red and Black. And then nothing....it's just a bird. Good luck someday to when you need to name your kids Josh!! :) He also got another teddy bear from the hospital- oh and the cool shades he is wearing. Last time he had surgery he got to ride out in this wagon. Today he chose the wheel chair. The nurse even let him try to roll himself a little bit. Quite the highlight.
Today we have taken it easy. Josh (and Matt and I) have slept on and off all day. Getting up at the crack of dawn takes a lot out of you!! I think I have been up since 3am. Yawn!! I am just happy that all went well and like I said- I am keeping my fingers crossed that his eyes stay put!

They sang two songs and recited a poem. I am NOT good at filming these things. In fact, it took me a little bit to figure out how to record them at all. In my defense, I did get a new camera and just assumed I could figure it out. Which I did- just not fast enough. Anyway- enough excuses- their cuteness speaks for itself. Watch and enjoy! Oh and Alex is on the left and Josh is on the right.

I do have to say that we were very minimal with our decorations this year. Since we are selling out house we wanted it to be simple. So there aren't a ton of decorations out. One wreath on the door, one Christmas tree and 5 stockings. That's it. None of the cute decorations that are homemade by the boys- unless they are ornaments on the tree- and even those are few.
Some of us may have been videoing and picturing ourselves while decorating, but that's ok. It is something I want to remember for years to come. Cause Christmas is about enjoying time with your family right?
