New Pics

We just took a trip to Phoenix to see Josh and for Thanksgiving. One of the main events was the Avalanche Ski Sale. We go every year to wait in line. The first thirty get free Snowbowl passes. So worth waiting in line for three hours. We were so excited to see Josh and everyone else. My boys adore Tracee and Rees. Can you believe how big my baby is already!!
We were numero uno on Saturday morning.We found a board that was perfect for Keegan. Too bad it was so expensive. He walked around with it forever thinking he was the coolest guy ever. We pretty much broke his heart when we told him he wouldn't be bringing it home.So we are back home now. I have been dying to get ready for Christmas. Jamon helped me get some of our Christmas stuff out of storage. This is a pic of our tree and family last year.
This year's tree... We have grown by one human and many baby toys:) Also, I couldn't find my white lights so we bought rainbow ones. OMG pink! It's the only color I see.
Seriously, could they get any sweeter??World's ugliest ornaments!!! Bought them last year after Christmas for 9 cents each.
Big storm came through. Wasn't as big as they thought it would be (thank goodness) but we enjoyed it.
Keegan put on his thermals to go play in the snow. He left them on and wanted to sleep in them too!
Here is an update on the boys...
Braxton is 6 months now. He is a drool factory! We have been waiting to see some teeth but no such luck yet. He is able to get on all fours now and rock back and forth but luckily no crawling yet!!! He thinks his brother is hilarious and loves watching him jump on the couch. He has stopped nursing (maybe I taste funny). It was hard for me to give it up but it has turned out better for both of us. He is sleeping better at night but still not as good as he should. We are working on it.

Keegan is funny as ever. He starts primary in January and we are so excited for him. Today he went to singing time and I had so many people coming up to me saying how good he was. However I also heard lots of stories about him raising his hand or saying excuse me to answer questions but then he would just go off on one of his forever long stories. He has become quite the talker. He is obsessed with maps and treasure.

Wanting to remember...

This is just a couple random things that have happened lately and the majority of them, I really want to remember.

1. The first, not really wanting to remember, but it was pretty funny. So on Tuesday, I had a pretty busy day. Trying to catch up from our trip to Phoenix, kids, helping family, more kids, dinner. Finally, 6:30 came and I got to go to enrichment and relax and talk to adults and feel the spirit... Ha ha ha ha ha. I got there with the boys and went to get Brax out of his car seat. Diarrhea all up his back. Oh, and no extra onesie in the diaper bag (took it out recently to wash). I had already dropped Keegan off at the nursery. Had to go get him out of the nursery. Started to head home. All the ladies stopped me and my only-wearing-a-diaper baby and told me to stay. Keegan back to nursery. In a weight loss competition so I couldn't eat all the freaking yummy treats. Enjoyed the lesson and started mingling during the activity. In walks Keegan with the nursery leader. He has to poop. twenty minutes later the poop comes out. I spent almost my entire evening for myself dealing with my children's bowel movements. Why do I even try.

2. Keegan was in his room with me talking. All of the sudden he boldly said, "Oh my God." Now, he has learned some not appropriate words from me but this isn't one of them. So we had the discussion about why we can't say that. I thought he understood enough to end the conversation. He then looked at me so innocently and asked, "Mom, can I say Oh my gum?" Yes, of course you can:)

3. Last night me and Braxton were kissing Keegan goodnight. Braxton gave him a really wet kiss and Keegan thought it was funny and gross. So, when I went to get my kiss, Keegan of course tried to give me a really wet kiss. Didn't want one. He was very aware of that fact because he then looked at me and said, "Mom, if you give me a kiss I'll give you a dollar." First of all, he doesn't know what a dollar is. He thinks they are called tickets. Second, where did he learn to bribe (Tracee and Rees)?

Now for a quick update... It is snowing outside and there are icesicles hanging from the roof outside. I am listening to Christmas music and burning an Evergreen candle from Bath and Body Works. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas:) Jamon is now the NAU's business school's liaison for the national fraternity Delta Sigma Pi. He is doing well in school but is ready for winter break. Braxton is doing so much better at night. He only wakes up once but it is for about an hour. I will take that any day over 6-8 a night!!!! Keegan is funny and skinny as usual. He is starting to gag when he sees spit up or hears me sucking braxton's boogers out. He is very excited for Christmas! Speaking of Keegan, anyone have tips on getting a kid to gain weight??

Here is a funny old video of Keegan to hold you over until I get new pics posted.
