My poor family


Everyone is sick.  James, Andrew and Adeline.  James came home Friday night and went right to bed with chest congestion and body aches.  Addy and Andrew have more of a cough, sore throat, sneezy/runny nose.  I feel like a nurse going from room to room.  Adeline missed one day of school, Andrew missed two days of school and James missed two days of work. (James never misses work).  He has been sleeping on the couch because he can't get comfortable in our bed.  Poor guy, this is what he sounds like.  I guess I won't complain that he is sleeping on the couch...otherwise I don't think I would be able to sleep myself with all this racket.

And this is how the Monopoly game ended.....



It's hard for anyone to lose.  I don't like to lose.  I'm competitive.  For this little man it is definitely the end of the world.  I feel for him, I do.  But there is this other side of me that is just laughing.  Mostly laughing at the thought of showing this to him when he is older or has a child of his own who struggles to lose.
He really is cute.

A day of games....

 He wants to dress like Daddy.  
Dress shirt tucked in, with his fleece over it and the collar sticking out.
And of course the Ninja Turtle mask...just like Daddy.

 We built ourselves a fun sheet tent in the basement and played Yatzee!
Then later we came upstairs and played a couple rounds of Monopoly.

"I'm a Lego Master Builder"



With some of his Christmas money Andrew bought The Lego Movie Lord Business Lego's.  And he put it together ALL by himself.  That's right, He is a true Lego Master Builder!

New Years Toenail painting....



We all got our toes painted.  These are definitely white, dry, winter feet.

New Years Eve


James and I got to enjoy a night out to dinner with friends.  After dinner we headed over to the Corbin's for their annual New Years Eve party.  It was a great time.  I really enjoyed being with, seeing, talking, and laughing with true genuine friends.
(Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for watching the kids)

Applebee's lunch after church

We had lunch right after church before everyone started going their separate ways.

Sometimes you must follow Andrew's rules when playing with him.  At least in a restaurant....otherwise he may cry.

This is one exhausted Ninja Turtle



A few more shots at the Bean house on our last night....

The kids helped Uncle Josh open his presents because he was sick Christmas morning.

Leiby Cousins

Next year I must remember to get pictures of everyone who is there.  This year we were at at Aunt Tammy's.  The kids were very excited to see their cousins and spend some time playing.  I was able to grab a few shots to send to Nana in Florida.  The last shot includes my second cousin Ben who is three and loved following the big kids around.

Family photo

Josh snagged these photo's which I had to get.  Sometimes I am always taking pictures of the kids and forget to get pictures of us or at least us with the kids.

Dinner with Aunt Bobbie

We had a very nice dinner with Aunt Bobbie meeting halfway in Chelsea at a very nice restaurant.  Adeline sat right next to her and talked her ear off.  Andrew told her she was "cute".  They sure know how to butter her up.


It was a nice evening.  Full of a lot of conversation and catching up.

Afternoon at Great Grandpa Forte's

 The kids played connect four with Grandpa Forte.
 Andrew would quickly empty all the pieces if he was about to lose...thankfully Grandpa Forte was patient with Andrew!
 A nice shot of all of the kids with Grandpa.  (also including Aunt Terry's husband Jeff)
I absolutely love this picture.  Everyone is smiling (including JoJo).
