I've been in a blogger slump for the past week or so. I have some pictures that I need to go through that I have taken over the Thanksgiving holiday. I hope to do that tonight and maybe they will prompt me to have a decent post. Until then know we're here and fine.

Being that it's close to Thanksgiving and Christmas I have been busy. Too busy to update lately. I hosted Thanksgiving that was also a surprise birthday party for my mom at my house last night. It was nice to have the family all together.
While doing all my cooking I listened to Mark Driscoll a lot. I like his approach, it's straight to the point and he covers a lot of things that we have everyday questions to.

The other day while I was vacuuming the never ending crumbs from under the couch cushions, the boys figured out they could jump from one cushion to the next. They had such fun and played like this for 30 mins or more. My first reaction was not to let them do it because they might ruin the cushions. Then I remembered I was vacuuming food particles out from under them, I must not be too concerned about my cushions in the first place. So I decided to let them have at it.

When your husband gets on your computer and see what you are getting him for your anniversary and when you exclaim in excitement that you have the perfect gift picked out for him, he looks back at you and tells YOU what you are getting him. Yeah, takes the fun right out of it.
Jimmy is so, so hard to buy for. He literally has every single thing he ever wanted. We are blessed but he is a doodie head for ruining my surprise for him.
I should add, he doesn't care that he already knows what it is, but because I have never really been able to surprise him I thought I had pulled it off this time. Basically the excitement is for me, I love to give gifts that I know someone will love and watch them open it.
And I should also add that he has done this twice not once, but twice. Silly husbands!

He started out saying "I want dis" then it moved to "I wanna ride dis". I tried to explain to him that it's in a book, that we don't have one. He just kept on insisting. He became more and more distressed and finally broke out into a fit. No amount of trying to explain was working he was just getting more worked up and saying over and over while pointing at the picture "I wanna ride dis". Jimmy tried to distract him and take the paper away that didn't work he got even more upset, somewhere in there the paper ripped a little and he came unglued. I ended up having to sit him in the time out chair for him to calm down.That's the first time he has seen some sort of advertising and wanted it. I'm sure there will be more to come over the next years.

Notice the missing keys on the keyboard. Karter did this when he was a baby.
This boy loves him some electronics.
As a side note I hate that table cloth and the mismatched table and chairs. Alas, I am waiting until our old house sells before I spend any extra money. I'm just thankful I have a table to eat at.

Kolton and Karter don't like eggs, spaghetti, putting their clothes on, having their diapers changed(most of the time), Karter dosen't like to get in his car seat, he would rather try to climb to the front of the car and push, turn and spin every button in the car. Kolton does not like hamburgers.They also don't like boxed Kraft macaroni and cheese. I can't really get them to eat very many vegetables either. Oh and breakfast, I can't get either one of them to eat it.
They do like shrimp, fish, cheese(oh how they like cheese), pizza, chicken nuggets, real macaroni and cheese, Kolton loves tator tots and french fries. Karter love bread(that's like his mama). They both LOVE mandarin oranges. Kolton likes all fruit. Karter loves bananas. They both LOVE chocolate(that's also like their mama).They love to help me cook, even when I don't want them too, they push chairs over to the counter to get to whatever I'm doing. They play with the can opener, the toaster(unplugged of course), the water and whatever I'm trying to use to cook. It drives me crazy sometimes because I'm trying to juggle cooking with fire mind you, and keeping two little busy boys away from the fire and off the counters. But the number one thing they are loving now days is going outside.

Nothing of much interest has been going on around here lately. I've struggled for a couple of days trying to find something to post about, alas I still don't have much to say.
I'm disappointed in who America chose to be our next president. I realize that history was made in the fact that he is going to be the very first African American president. I can respect that. I don't have and issue with that at all. What I do have an issue with is what he stands for. That's pretty much all I'm going to say about it. It's done and over with and time to move on. I'll just pray, that's all I can do.

(Crash, the old man cat who was hit by a car and not expected to live)
Doing what they do best.
Well, that's enough randomness for tonight. I'm off to bed.

I feel saddened and somewhat scared for our nation. Obviously the election did not turn out as I had hoped. All I have to say it Boo and I have many prayers to pray.

It's here! My most favorite time of the year. I love this time of the year through Christmas. I've already located and have been listening to the Holiday music station on the tv and can't wait to dig out all my Christmas stuff.
