This Boy....

Words can't describe how I feel about this little boy. He has us wrapped!! He is so sweet but so naughty at the same time:) He is super funny and has his mommy and daddy laughing at him constantly. He is still a busy body and I'm pretty sure his main focus in life right now is to make his mama crazy by destroying the house. Seriously this kid can flat make some messes!!  It's so funny how different your kids can be. Q was such an angel child and so so easy! Liam on the other hand, not so much:) Just to give you an idea of what I deal with day to day here is one of Liam's latest shenanigans. I will warn you it's quite gross! It involved him in his crib playing with his own poop! Disgusting..right?? He somehow got his pants and his poopy diaper off and was having a hay day...So GROSS!  There was poop everywhere! Despite his nastiness we love him to death and wouldn't trade him for the world!!
(this is not a picture of that incident. Grabbing my camera was the last thing I had on my mind at that moment! This is just a picture of the cute face I usually walk into after naps.)

He loves playing on the slide that we moved indoors for the winter.
Church is so fun now a days. Liam is either throwing a tantrum or extremely tired. There's only like 2 more weeks till he starts nursery. It will be so nice to enjoy church again but that also means my baby is growing up too dang fast:(
 I always find this kid getting stuck in the weirdest places!

A little documentation of some messes made by the buby!! 
The pantry is one of his go to spots to have a good time.
 Caught in the dryer eating crayons. If you get a good look you will see his colorful teeth!

Found the M&M bag. His chocolate covered face cracks me up!
This is what follows after I find him doing something naughty...a pout session with his head buried in the ground that lasts a few minutes.

Getting cleaned up after one of his bright ideas:) Is it poop or chocolate all over his face?? You can never really tell with this one! 
(Don't worry folks it's totally chocolate...this time!)

 Cute bum!! I think it's time for a diaper change!
 Double fisting the donuts. My kinda guy!
 Liam is obsessed with dogs. He loves my parents dog so much and will not leave her side when we are out there. 

Loves cruising around with his back pack on. It makes him look so big!!
He prefers riding on his play horse:) 
 I had to get a picture of this cause it NEVER happens. He's actually holding still watching cartoons. 
 And this....He hardly ever falls asleep in the car. 
 Liam has become a Daddy's boy. He loves Bran so much. It's so cute!
(but secretly it makes me a little jealous)

 On Christmas night we drove up to the Kelley cabin to spend a couple days with Grandma and Grandpa Kelley and Nate and Heather. We had so much fun! We laughed a lot, played games, ate lots of yummy food and relaxed by the fire. We did take the kids out a few times to go sledding. This was a first for Liam and he couldn't have been happier! He laughed the entire time on the sled. It was so cute!!

Q making snow angels.

 Love this picture!!
 He was having a ball!
 Isn't this place beautiful!?

 Cute little man cruising around the cabin.
 This is what the cabin is all about.

Living the dream. Q had a pretty nice setup:)
 Every night when we get a bottle ready for Liam his gets so excited and starts giggling uncontrollably. Love him!!
 We played games for four days straight and had so much fun! Pretty sure I laughed for four days straight also. Such a fun group! Nate and I however were not great at 25 words or less. We may or may not have had to google multiple words:)
Thanks guys for a super fun cabin trip!! We loved every minute! 

Christmas 2012

We had such a wonderful Christmas this year! On Christmas Eve we went out to my parents house for dinner and some games. The kids had so much fun playing Christmas bingo(Q's favorite present may have been the pringles he won in funny) and opening their Christmas eve jammies. 
A quick family photo on Christmas Eve. I forgot my camera so these pictures are from my phone and kinda blurry.

On our way home we saw Santa at a house not far from ours.

This sure got the kids excited.

We went home and read Luke 2 as a family before we put the kids to bed. A perfect way to end the night!

Christmas morning...pure joy!!! 
Q woke up at like 8 and patiently watched cartoons in our bedroom until Liam woke up at like 8:30. Walking down the stairs was so exciting...their faces were priceless!

Q said he was so happy he got binoculars so he could see Uncle Nate's house because it's really far away.

 Liam loved his new horse:)

 Who knew Iron Man was such a handyman!
 Q was a little excited and couldn't decide on which toy he wanted to play with:)   
 Later that day we went out to my parents house to open a few more gifts. Q got a life size batman. His new best buddy. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Garner.

 Megan and JC got the kids these cute little backpacks and Liam thought he was so cool cruising around with his. He wears it all the time. 
 Liam with his cousin Lawson. Of course the babies like the boxes more than the actual toys:)
 Santa also came to Grandma and Grandpa Garner's house and left this power wheel for the grand kids. They were pretty excited. 

 My cute little family on Christmas.
 That evening we stopped in Rexburg on our way to the cabin. We ate dinner and opened a few more presents. Thanks Grandma and Susan!!

We had a wonderful Christmas celebrating Jesus' birth. We hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!!
