Christmas Eve Pictures

Here are our pictures from Christmas Eve.  We went to Mass and then let the boys open one present each from my aunt and uncle.  I can't believe this is only my second post in December.  Well honestly I can believe it.  I am so busy and overwhelmed that I can't even formulate a coherent thought lately and certainly not anything good enough to post!  
I am thankful for my mom and step-dad's visit this past week though.  They helped me so much with the kids and I was able to get a lot done.

Christmas Card Outtakes

I was able to finally get a picture of all four boys smiling at one time, it was not easy!  Here are some of the MANY outtakes.
This one would have been okay but look at Henry's mouth, he kept trying to be silly!
 I think this one is really funny, the pensive Christmas card.

Trimming the Tree

The boys had lots of fun decorating the tree this year.  I had to let go and let them do most of it (I did go back and redo some of it later....I couldn't help it!)  
I am sure we will have some broken ornaments because Oliver can't stop playing with everything on it.  I just hope our tree makes it to Christmas.

Joseph's 8th Birthday!

We celebrated Joseph's birthday today even though it isn't actually until tomorrow.  He had a great day filled with Legos, sushi and coconut cake.  

It's hard to believe that it has been 8 years since this....

My Birthday

It's my came a little too fast this year!  Not sure how I feel about being this old.
Here are some pictures of the boys singing to me.

Fun at Home

Here are some random pictures taken lately.  
Bennett is learning how to assert himself.  He is going to need to know how to protect himself being the youngest of four boys.

Getting Henry!
 This is fun!

 Bennett looks frightened...I would too.  I think they were pushing him around in that box!

Boys Rule

Here are some recent pictures of Bennett and Oliver.  I can't believe Bennett is already 7 months old!  Phew....can't believe we made it this far!

Frugal Halloween

I call this Halloween "frugal" because I only spent $9 on costumes for all the kids.  Henry wore his scout uniform (he was going to be Drew Brees but then changed his mind as he was getting ready), Oliver wore a hand-me-down, Bennett wore the famous lion costume that I made 7 years ago for Joseph and Joseph's costume was his karate uniform plus a ninja mask and nunchucks.  I have learned that it really doesn't matter what the kids wear, they've only got the costumes on for about an hour anyway.  They ended up with tons of candy (6# total!) and had a great time.

Fall Fun

We are having a beautiful fall this year.   Joseph & Henry are loving the weather and the leaves.  Almost daily, they ask me to go out and rake and can't wait until they have enough to jump in.  Oliver just likes dumping out what they have worked so hard to pick up!
