Happy New Year!

Conner and Bret went to buy a few fireworks this afternoon. Conner got to try out a few poppers when they got home, while Micah was taking a nap.

Then, once it got dark, Micah got to join the fun. Bret lit a few blackcats, tanks, and a couple of other random little things. Everyone loved it -- the blackcats didn't even scare anyone! But, Micah lost interest once we got out the poppers and sparklers...he decided that he would rather play golf.

Eventually, though, Daddy came to the rescue, and Micah got excited about a couple of sparklers.

Then the evening was over, and the boys went to bed at the ripe old hour of 6:45. We had a great New Year's Eve. We wish you a happy 2008!

Christmas with Gammie, Poppy, Aggie, Uncle Adam, and Uncle Kevin

Gammie, Poppy, Aggie, Uncle Adam, and Uncle Kevin came to visit this weekend. We got to have Christmas with them while they were here!

Conner got his own laptop (it's just like his friend, Ben's)...

...and new games for his Leapster!

Micah shows Poppy and Kevin his new duckie soap...

... and is really excited about the Elmo Aquadoodle!

Baby Brother Joey got some new bibs...which Micah quickly claimed (look close - all three at once!) when it was time to eat pizza.

Conner challenges Aggie and Micah to a riveting game of Flippin' Frogs.

Getting out of the house to play some basketball! (Check out their new "fuzzy crocs!")

Yogi, BooBoo, and Uncle Ira Come to Visit

Yogi, BooBoo, and Uncle Ira flew in on Saturday and stayed with us for a few days. Yippee! While we were in New Orleans picking them up at the airport, we went ahead and made a little side trip to the French Quarter. (This is Uncle Ira's first visit to New Orleans.) While there, Yogi helped the boys make some French "quarters."

And, of course, no trip to the French Quarter is complete without a trip to Cafe du Monde!

Love that powdered sugar!

We did some other fun things while they were here, too. Here's a few fun pictures...

Yogi's favorite book to read is Tickle Monster.

Uncle Ira reminisced with some new Lincoln Logs. He built the log cabins, and Micah knocked them down!

Of course there was lots of wrestling with Yogi...

And we even found time to watch The Polar Express with BooBoo on Christmas Eve.
