Christmas Cookies, Aunt Lissa and of course, Trucks!

The last week has been a little tough for us. The boys, as always, shared a looovely bug. Jonah was first and ran a fever about a week ago. Then, on Saturday, Jake woke with the same crud. He ended up having a much rougher time with it too, running a fever of 103.8 on Saturday night. Poor guy! Thankfully, my parents (GG and Granddad) were here to help soothe the ickies away.

Somewhere between Jonah getting better and Jake getting sick, we made some christmas cookies! Aunt Lo was here to help eat them (thankfully) and we were glad to see her again.
























































Aunt Lissa was able to stop by this weekend and she gave the boys their first Christmas presents. The other presents will pale in comparison to the mighty Monster Trucks. The boys love everything and anything that is considered a transportation device...trucks, airplanes, trains, helicopters, tractors, motorcycles, buses, cars, bicycles, fire trucks, ambulances, etc. And, of course the bigger, the better. So Monster Trucks are the cooooolest. In fact, this is one of the boys FAVorite shows we let them watch:









And so when the guys opened their presents...of course, they looooved them. In fact, today is Tuesday and they still are rarely seen without one of their monster trucks in hand(s). :)

So Thank you Aunt Lissa!!! And Thank you Uncle Jimmy!!! We loooove our trucks. :) :)

Updates and Photos

We had our (what was supposed to be) last appointment at Children's Hospital today to get Jake's blood checked out. His count is 147,000, which is considered normal...still. Yeah!!!! The nurse did mention that his pediatric hemotologist did want to see him but we're not exactly sure why, so we're going to look in to that further. But, this is still great news that he is normal. Thank you God!

I took some photos of the boys on my phone while we were there. Jake did sooo good getting his blood drawn. And he was so darn cute. When he finally got the bandage off his finger, which he hated, he said through whining, "there ya go". Ha...sweet Jakie!







































And last weekend we had family photos made. It was kind of thrown together at the last minute but the photos turned out better than I had anticipated. And the boys did great! The photographer even said they looked into the camera more than any other toddlers had for her. I think they're born covermodels! How could they not be, check these out!!

First Snow!

Wednesday morning as I was waking the boys from school I was SHOCKED when I pulled back the boys curtain to see a blanket of snow all over the ground and huge flakes still falling. It was so beautiful and extremely unexpected. But, it was fun to get the boys out to see their first snow!
