CrAzY about my family and Merry Christmas!

Here are some recent pictures we had taken (thank you Mallory).  Can those kids get any cuter?....i submit to you nay.  I am really really in love with this family of mine.  Danny boy is working hard this month.  He has a crazy schedule and is on the reservation most days.  When he is home he is usually working until 8:30pm.  We miss him around here, but someone has to make the money :) 

Carson is 2 3/4.  i can't believe in Feburary I will have a 3 year old.  He is sooooooo busy and hilarious.  He loves kung fu panda and thinks that he is po.  I love to hear him talking to himself and pretending he is a ninja.  He also makes a lot of pretend snow angels, throws "snow balls" at me constantly, and any pile of clothes on the floor is a pile of leaves.  He is still obsessed with cars and trucks.  He moved into a big boy bed (thanks to his evil cousin teaching him how to crawl out of his crib).  At first it was awesome, and then he learned to crawl out.  We have had more than one "supernanny" night.  Literally hours of him getting out and us putting him back in.  Last nigt was a great night...thank heavens. 

Paige is just Paige.  She is so sweet and happy and great.  She loves food, if you couldn't tell.  The highlight of her days are meal time and nap time.  She stands on her own for hours on end, but refuses to take a step.  She is only 10 months old, but I know she can do it!  Soon she will be running around with Carson boy.  She loves her brother and lights up when anyone pays attention to her.  When she is tired she drags her head on the floor while she crawls.  She is still wearing her helmet.  I don't think it is doing anything anymore.  We have an appointment a couple days after christmas so we shall see.  She is getting her 7th tooth as we speak.  She loves to use her teeth for food and flesh.  Bad habit. 

I'm just here, unsuccessfully trying to keep the house clean, occassionally cooking dinner, and slowly becoming a real Blanding woman :)

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!!!

Beth! Your family (especially you) are beautiful!! I miss you and often think of you and what it would be like to be next door neighbors (although not in Blanding...sorry!) I need your phone number or you need to call me sometime... Jonas is a nightmare at night. But we've kept his crib up even though he's in a toddler bed and he has a crib tent on it, so we threaten to zip him back up in his tent if he doesn't stay in his bed. It works, but he is still up till 12:30 most nights many of those nights yelling and screaming because he's mad...I wish kids came with a manual and that they were all the same so once we figured out one, we could figure out the rest. Right? Good luck to us all! Call me...
