Christmas At Seaba's

We spent Christmas day at Grandpa and Grandma Seaba's house. Johnny's brother Rodney has been in Iraq for over a year so it was nice that everyone was home and together this year.Our Christmas night tradition is for all of us go to a movie. We went and saw "Night at the Museum". I was worried about how Ethan would do this year but he fell asleep on the way to the movie and slept through about a half hr of it and then sat on my lap and just stared at the screen the rest of the movie. He was such a good boy!!

One More Blessing!

Yes, if everything goes well, we will be having a new addition to our family in August. We shared the news with family over Christmas by Ethan wearing his shirt we made him. Trey and Avery are thrilled and Avery reminds me every day that we need to be praying that it's a girl. Trey actually wants a girl too because he said "it would be fair then". Trey and Avery are 24 months apart and Ethan and this one will be 22 months apart, so almost the same. We are very happy and excited that God has blessed us with another pregnancy, and praying that everything goes well with this pregnancy!

Christmas Morning At Home

We opened presents and stockings at home Christmas morning. Trey got a Bible with his name engraved on it. He has been borrowing mommy's Bible to take to sunday school because he doesn't want to take his "baby Bible". Avery got a ballet outfit and said santa was pretty smart becasue she has a ballet birthday party the day after Christmas and now had a new outfit to wear. We got Ethan a set of nerf balls which he immediately took a big bite out of the football. He got a little people airplane that he loved.

Christmas In Hutchinson

We just got back late this evening from Hutchinson where we spent the weekend and celebrated Christmas today. The grandkids sang in church this morning, we had a full kids choir and were even missing a few. We had 39 people at dinner this evening so it was an extremely full house! The cousins had a blast together as always. They played lots of games. Trey and Avery learned how to play monopoly from their older cousins. Ethan had a bit of a rough weekend. He was very fussy the first couple of days. He is still not feeling totally better. He has two teeth coming in too so i'm sure that doesn't help matters. He didn't get a good nap today so he was asleep in the carseat before we even got out of Hutch tonight. The kids are asleep in the living room waiting for it to be Christmas morning....

Special Gifts

Treyand Avery both brought gifts home from school for daddy and i and COULD NOT wait till Christmas for us to open them. Trey was so excited when i was opening it, saying "you are going to love it mommy!" "i worked so hard on it". And he was right, i absolutely loved it. It's a clay candlestick that he made and painted in art class. I will treasure it always! Avery gave us a calendar that she made at school, with a piece of her artwork for each months picture. Very special gifts from our two sweeties!

Sick Boy

We have been hit by the sick bug again and this time it's Ethan. He woke up this morning with a fever and cough and has had a 102 fever on and off all day. I went in to check on him at 11 and he was just laying there in his crib. He was burning up again so i got him up and gave him some motrin and tried to get him to drink something. He pushes the cup away and pushes his bottle away (which tells me he's feeling really crummy cause he loves his bottle). I got him to eat some jello finally. Poor little guy is very lethargic, he just wants to be cuddled. Hopefully the we are rid of the sick bug by Christmas!

Ready For The Big Books

Trey begged me to order the book "Eragon" from his weekly scholastic book order at school, so i did and he got it yesterday. I couldn't tell in the magazine that it was a 500 page book! He has been reading ever since, he has his bookmark and pencil to mark where he leaves off the time before. He struggled in kindergarten and his teacher tutored him after school, so we were worried that he was going to struggle through school, but he has taken off and doing great. He does struggle with math (i think he has his mother's math brain), so daddy does all the math homework with him and mommy does the spelling and reading. He is on page 23 in his big book, so he has lot's of reading to do!

Growth Wall

We started measuring the kids height on one of the door jams in our house back in 2001. It was measuring night tonight. The kids love when they get to see how much they have grown. It's fun comparing Ethan to how tall Trey and Avery were at his age. So far he is taller that either one of them were at his age, but not by too much.

Keeping Warm

Ethan has gotten very used to getting bundled up three times a day to go back and forth to school. The first hat i got him he HATED and would figure out a way to get it off. This hat he doesn't mind at all and never tries to take it off even in the van.

Fun In The Snow

We had some "technical difficulties" with our computer so i am a little slow getting on our snow day pictures. The kids were out of school on Thursday and Friday because of the weather. We haven't sent Ethan out in the snow yet. The closest he has gotten is the back porch, when we are getting snow for our "snow slushes". He doesn't know what to think of it, but he likes eating it.
