Last Saturday (I know I'm a week behind) was our Church Christmas Party--it was supposed to be a pj party or so I was told--but we were some of the few that actually showed up in our pj's--anyway the kids did some crafts and then it was time to eat--of course this is both Jimmy and Chase's favorite part!
Especially when they have big muffins..........
Really big muffins!!!!
Of course Jimmy and Chase's bff Caden was there--I just love how they like to hold hands! And yes James is wearing his cape--didn't you know he is "Cooperman". aka Superman for those of you who don't speak Jamesese.
I wasn't entirely sure they really understood the whole Santa thing--or if they even knew who he was other than a decoration and someone Mom keeps refering to. But the moment Santa walked through the door Chase started dancing around screaming Senta Cause!! I don't know that I have seen him that excited about something before. He had a really hard time waiting in line to sit on his lap--and when he finally made it he was soooooo happy--I just love these kiddo's they are so much fun!!!
James: Heel catcher, (Greek form of Jacob.)
English form of Latin Iacomus, meaning "supplanter". This is the name of several biblical characters, including two apostles and a brother of Jesus.
James - smeller of other people's armpits
Oh Jimmy--you are an amazing little boy--you are so full of sunshine and vinegar! I love your passion for everything--your devotion to your brother--your mischeiviousness--your silliness--your funniness--I just love you! You have made me so happy--I thank my lucky stars that I have the chance to be your Mommy--you are so much fun and keep me busy/laughing/crazy/running/loving/singing all the time!
Happy Birthday Boog!
Chase wanted to be a monster too! But only for a couple minutes--then he wanted to be Superman again.

We were cleaning up the back yard the other day and I found a frog. I put it up on the deck so the boys could play with it. It was so cute to watch them try to hop after it and find it. We tried to take a video but didn't have the battery power. We'll have to make sure to keep it charged. Chase was very afraid at first but later turned into the perfect little frog. He would get down and hop just like his little froggie friend. Another cute happening last week was Thursday. I was bringing in the trash cans from the road and James wanted to help. He looked up at me and said "I hep da'ey." Since there were two cans I let him bring one back to the house. When we got back to the house I put the can I had next to the house and went to grab the other from James. He quickly told me "no I do it." He tried 2 or 3 times before finally looking up at me with a look of utter humility and said "okay Da'ey hep pease." It was the cutest little face I've ever seen and the little voice that came along with it was priceless. One of my favorite attributes that both of the boys have is their willingness to help. They usually pick up after themselves and put their toys away. They'll happily put things in the trash, which sometimes isn't the best thing. They put shoes away or put dishes in the sink. They just love to help. We couldn't ask for two better boys. They bring so much joy and laughter to our home, and they really are helpful.
