We've had a pretty routine week. Christmas was fun, but it wore me out! It's nice to get things back in order (almost) and resume a normal routine. Here are a few pictures from the week and a couple of videos.
Bath time!

I think Bo could jump all day if I left him in there! That boy can JUMP!

Some morning painting with her new brushes.

Bo was not too sure about Arabelle's antics.

New PJs and a snack.

Day After Christmas

We spent the night with my parents' on Christmas night, then went to church and enjoyed lunch at my grandparents' house. Bo slept really well away from home. Arabelle, on the other hand, did not. She was up at 4:30, crying for me. My Dad came and got me at 5 and we snuggled until Jared came in with Bo at 6:30. I don't think Arabelle ever fell back asleep. I dozed off and on. Needless to say, I was tired! I got Bo back to sleep at 7 and got back in bed, requesting to not be woken up until Bo was hungry again. It was nice to sleep until nearly 10!

We had a great BBQ lunch at my grandparents, then opened presents. Spoiled again!
Matt Ryan! Oh, that's Anderson!

Christmas Day

Bo got us started early on Christmas morning. He was up and ready to go at 6:30. Arabelle woke up around 7:15. She wasn't excited as I thought she'd be. I think she was still half asleep. She went straight to the train to play with it, then went to Bo's gifts. I had to lead her to her own presents! As she was opening each gift, she'd say "What's in here!?".

The oatmeal she asked Santa for

We enjoyed breakfast with Jared's parents and grandparents at our house. I don't know why, but I didn't get any pictures of that. We went to my great-grandmother's for lunch and again, I didn't get any pictures. Bo was waaaaayyyyy overtired by then, so I had to do some work to get him to sleep. We headed to my parents' after that and spent the afternoon with Mama, Daddy, Lindsey, Brian, Mama Love, and Uncle Jim. We were spoiled again with gifts and really good food!

We rode around the kitchen/dining room 100x chasing each other. One of my favorite parts of this Christmas. :)

Lindsey and Caleb! Just over 2 months to go.

Lindsey was surprised to get their crib!
 We were all exhausted! I think I was in bed by 9:30. Bo slept really good there, thank goodness, but Arabelle was up at 4:30 and never went back to sleep. :D

Christmas comparison

I will have a big Christmas post, tomorrow maybe, but wanted to share these pictures tonight. Arabelle last Christmas and Arabelle this Christmas. I can't get over how much she has grown and changed!

Christmas--take 1

We celebrated Christmas with the Roberts today. We had some great Rancheros for lunch, followed by Red Velvet cake and Oreo cake balls. We were so full! We made our way into the den for gifts though and it was chaos! Rhianna, Gigi, and Arabelle helped pass out gifts and you can imagine how that went. We had a great day with family!

Bo, jumping around

Tripp gave up



This picture says it all about Gigi!

 We came home around 4 and the kids crashed! They were up and ready to exchange gifts around 6. Arabelle said "What's in here?!" the whole time she was opening her present. :)
Helping Bo--I love how he's smiling at her!

Arabelle has been coloring "Bible pages" for a couple of weeks. Each sheet is a part of the Christmas story. She's very proud of them!

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:10-11

Merry Christmas!
