In the blink of an eye…our baby turned 3!

Lincoln is a very sweet and compassionate little boy.  He’s very affectionate and has plenty of hugs, kisses, and cuddles for his family and our cat, Mickey.  If he senses that I am upset about something he will ask, “Mommy, are you happy?”  He tries hard to please us and is quite good at it!  He’s a bit sensitive and can get his feelings hurt by his peers (especially if they grab something from his hand).  He is fairly easy-going and almost never throws a fit.  Lincoln has a wonderful imagination and can play “guys” several hours out of each day.  He loves playing with his little friends, cousins, brothers, and his mommy and daddy, too.  His little heart is happiest when someone is playing “guys” with him.
Lincoln has the sweetest voice and talks so well!  He loves music and falls asleep to his CD player every day.  His favorite shows are:  Caillou, Super Why, and his Playmobil movie.  His current favorite color is, “dawk bwoo.”
* We all just love this little guy and his daddy and I are so proud of the big boy he has become!
** Time flies much too quickly. It just doesn’t seem fair. **

Good-Bye Two’s

This picture was taken at Grandma and Grandpa’s house on Lincoln’s last night as a 2-year-old.  (He was concerned with the eye on his pillow.  He said it was looking at him and he wanted to know if it was scary or nice.)  🙂   Good night, my sweet two-year old… Oh, how I will miss that wonderful year.
Good morning to you, our big 3-year-old!

Friends (and cousins) Party

We had a party for Lincoln at home a few days before his birthday since we would be in TN on his actual birthday. This also allowed for two birthday celebrations!

Owen, Lincoln, Jude, Josie, Hailey, Gavin, and Alex.  The big kids (Ethan, Isaac, Annie, and Josiah) were part of the party as well. They had to eat cake in shifts.
Josie and our niece Claire.  It was a special treat for Beth, John, Jude, and Claire to join us for the birthday party. They were in town for the evening during their holiday travels up north.

Christmas Evening

This Christmas can be summed up with one word… NERF

Isaac’s new gun shoots up to 20 darts at a time!  I love that Warren made this educational by using the boys new graph paper to compare the number of pumps to the number of darts released. Haha! (In case you’re wondering, it takes 23 pumps to shoot the full 20.)
Dan, Kari, and their boys came over for a while on Christmas night.  Five little boys, two big boys, an endless supply of Nerf guns and ammunition made for a loud and dangerous evening!
Don’t let that sweet face fool you. 😉
Kari, what have we gotten ourselves into? And you’re adding another one!

Christmas Morning

Merry Christmas, Mickey!
Growing up, my mom made cinnamon rolls every Christmas morning. It just wouldn’t be the same for me without the smell of cinnamon filling the house while opening presents.  This year, Warren put a slide-show together of past Decembers and played it on our TV with soft music.  I loved it!
This is the last book Isaac needed to complete his set.  He really enjoys reading about animals.
Lincoln calls these his “moving guys” because they can bend and move at all the joints.
Lincoln drew two guys for Warren. I framed his work of art so he would give it as a Christmas gift. Apparently, I didn’t explain that very well to Lincoln. He tried to give it to him the day before Christmas by waking him up and saying, “Here you go, Daddy. I made a picture for you.”  When I told Lincoln that it wasn’t time to give it to Daddy yet, he ran back, picked up his drawing and said, “Wait Daddy, Mommy needs to wrap it.”
Ethan and Isaac bought gifts for the family from the school’s workshop. It was cute to see what they came home with. They did a great job thinking of what each person might like.

Christmas Eve Night

I love the feeling I have before bed on Christmas Eve. The house is quiet, Christmas lights glowing, stockings filled, and the presents positioned with care under the tree. It’s a feeling of accomplishment and excitement…I try not to think about the imminent tornado just hours away. Instead I try to think about the smiles on the sweet faces of my three favorite little guys!

Christmas Eve

We have a tradition of letting the boys each open one gift after dinner on Christmas Eve.
Isaac’s gift: A word search book he has been wanting for a long time. I love that this made him so happy!
Ethan’s gift: An Amazin’ Hamster (Santa version)
Lincoln’s gift: A Batman action figure
My gift: A new lens for my camera!
Warren’s gift: A new coat which he opened earlier than Christmas Eve out of desperation.
Next, we had snowman soup and Christmas cookies!  Ethan asked how many cookies he was allowed to eat. On Christmas Eve there are no limits. I told him he was welcome to eat until he felt sick. His response, “Seriously!?”
We hopped in the car and took a ride to see some Christmas lights.
Daddy read to the boys and then off to bed they went.
