Shane got a couple of new lego sets for Christmas, so we put them together today. Then it got us in the Lego mood so we got out Matthew's box of Legos to see if we had all the pieces to build some other stuff. Matthew and I stayed up late trying to find pieces to put together some of his old sets.

Today we enjoyed the breezy nice bug free weather and fed the birds. We went to feed the ducks and geese but the seagulls (Ted calls them "Beach Chickens") were too fast and got most of our bread. You know they are the same birds that yell out MINE MINE and Mine from the movie Finding Nemo.

NO..... We ddn't get a hamster. That is the kids new friend. Our friends brought Hunter the Hamster over to visit today and we fell in love with him. Even Ted thought he was pretty cool. He has a unique hairdo and he is COOL! Sawyer got to sniff him and Smokey watched him groom himself. Everyone got their chance to visit with Hunter. I hope he comes to visit again, even though Shane, and Colby put him in a Playmobil Police Van. Don't worry he escaped through the window and I think Matthew rescued him from the little kids. Speaking of friends, Ted got a new Tshirt that he loves today! Thank you! You got him the Perfect Tshirt!

Smokey and Sawyer love to sit in the sun and look outside. Ted caught this picture of Smokey this morning. It was toasty inside and a little chilly outside. We enjoyed the day inside and ended our night with a warm fire. The boys always ask for a fire, so tonight we were able to have one since the temperature dropped some in the past two days.

I finally got a new phone, well I got it Christmas Eve, for those of you who have been calling me, and dealing with my microphone cutting out on you sorry. Ted got this for me and said Merry Christmas. Now he is trying to get Tmobile to give him the unlock code so he can replace his Treo. My old Blackberry was never used to its full potential so hopefully I can use this new phone like its supposed to be used. On the my old phone I never used the contact stuff or even hooked it up to the computer. With my new phone I've already taken some pictures and surfed the internet, so thats at least a start. No if I can only figure out ...

Here is the one picture I caught tonight. Its of Ted and Matthew. He is teaching him how to make a Networking cable. For a little bit tonight Ted was trying to get all of that computer stuff straight. Thats a good thing, especially since he went to work with him this week. (He goes to work with him from time to time when homework permits, or when they need extra help)

By default I am posting old pictures. In the Roller Coaster pics the people in black shirts behind Matthew are friends, that you might have seen in our Photopass pictures that I posted earlier this week. I didn't get any pictures today. I spent a good bit of my day picking up those last minute Christmas things. I think I am just about done. We did pretty good earlier this year so we haven't had to do much crazy shopping in crowds stuff. These pictures are from two weeks ago and these are some of my favorites. I've gotten lots more and might post them to the gallery eventually.

Yesterday Shane sang along with other kids in his 4 and 5 year old class at church. The older elementary kids sang also and had some puppet skits. He had a great time singing. Hopefully I can get a small clip up on the web of him singing. Mattthew got a small snip of him singing. When he filmed it was really shaky and he missed getting Shane and got the wall and mikes in some spots. I'll just have to work with what we got. That is when I get a chance. We haven't even gotten our tree up yet, and I'm a day after Thanksgiving Tree person. This year it just didn't happen. I just hung our wreath outside a few minutes ago.

Every night we have been putting up Ornaments on our tree from a set that we got for a present awhile back. They are called Adornaments. This is the second year in a row that we have been doing this. latley I've been trying to think of different memories I've had growing up. Things my family did to celebrate Christmas. I'd like to hear what you did as a child or what you are doing now that you are older. Thats my mom holding my sister. I'm the one who is standing. The picture isn't from around Christmas, its from around Easter.

Okay so I know its already the 2nd. December crept up on us. I'm wanting to do lots of Christmas type things. I know how that goes though. Usually we don't have enough time or energy to do all the things I want to. Like today we had a Birthday Party first thing. Sawyer had a vist to the VET! LOL the vet said he might be drowsy after his shots. I didn't realize dogs got drowsy like kids. We did make it to the mall to see the decorations and just walk around. Thats one thing I always like to do in December and we got that done. So, the kids hair still isn't cut (Our favorite Barber closes early on Saturday WHOOPS) Now haircuts have to be a priority SOON! I got lots and lots of pictures today, but I tried to pick out just a few.

If you don't notice two new boxes off to the left refresh your page. One should be a little box where you can view us LIVE! The other box is a text box where you can IM us LIVE! How exciting. If you do IM us or view our webcam try and make us know who you are by telling us in your first message or changing your name to something we would recognize, so we won't block you from viewing. If you do happen to get blocked just email us and we will fix it. This is just a trial. We won't be online at all times either. Sometimes you may be viewing an empty room or outside.
Well Google is now finished processing the videos. Boy that took longer than I expected. The links are below. If you prefer watching Youtube (One is too big to load on Youtube) See yesterday's post. Click descriptions below.
