Backwards Blogging-After Christmas First...

After all of the hullabaloo of the holiday died down, we had calm, quiet play time here at home. As much as I LOVE Christmas, I don't always enjoy all of the loud, raucous antics that come with a house full of people. Trust me, four little ones around the tree amounted to LOUD!

A few days later, Nana came over to just hang out and help the boys break in their new games...especially their very favorite gift-Don't Break The Ice! It's funny, out of all the expensive, fancy play sets they received, this simple game held their attention the longest...they love it! Nothing but trying to knock out the "ice" blocks w/out knocking down the skating bear.

They say a picture's worth a thousand words, but this picture doesn't do the moment justice. Braden was in on the action, too...just a Nanna and her two boys, laughing, playing, matching picture can compare to the special moments they all shared together.

Braden singing into his "microphone" while hangin' out on the top bunk! :0)

Garrett, also hangin' on the top bunk, gives a great goofy grin (how bout that alliteration?)!

Garrett and Braden received suncatcher paint sets from Santa in their stockings. They begged to paint them for three days before we gave in...and they did great. No mess, no muss, no fuss, and they even shared paints because one set was completely dried out...can you believe it?
