Merry Chirstmas!!! part one

We are BLESSED! What a fun Christmas season this was for our family. Lots of parties, friends, and family. Connor, Ian, and I spent about 5 days last week with mom and dad at the farm. The weather was beautiful and Connor had 100 plus acres to run, play, and drive the mule. When we got home from the farm it was full cleaning, grocery shopping, and wrapping presents mode. Mom and dad drove down on Christmas Eve we went to church and came home and had a great meal and spent time together. Connor got to open his Christmas Eve gift, a Kelly family tradition. It was a Cars Leapster game. He was completely satisfied still wondering if Santa would bring his Woody and Jessie with 2 pull strings and 2 hats and a Buzz with the buttons that work (the long list he told every Santa when he sat on their lap)! I also got to open a gift...a new CAMERA!!!!! AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Check out my pictures below!!

Just got home from Christmas Eve service!

Connor coming down the stairs and pointing at all that Santa delivered!

The boys...Satisfied with my exersaucer and toys that Santa brought

Connor has not put down the toys...he had a very Toy Story Christmas!!!

James and I are very blessed with two healthy boys and family that loves unconditional. We tried very hard to teach Connor what this season is truly about...Our Lord and Savior! As he and Ian continue to get older we hope that they embrace the giving spirit.

We are gearing up for Christmas with the Kelly family in DC. Luckily we will be flying as a family, that way we have more time to spend and not driving!

Just to put it into perspective how BIG Connor was here are pictures of the boys at the same age. Connor was a monster. While Ian weighed in at a whopping 12 pounds and some change Connor was 17 pounds 8 oz!

Ian the way was not a happy baby.

Connor! Check out the rolly polly AND the curly hair. He was HUUGGGGEEE!
Merry Christmas!

Only a month behind

So I finally found some time to put up Ian's 4 month pictures and stats.
He weighed 12 pounds 8 oz
He was 23 1/4 inches long
He is talking and coning more and more each day
He can roll from his tummy to his back...when mad enough
He loves being held, especially when he is sleeping
He still won't take a bottle of ANY kind
We tried cereal and he doesn't seem to like or dislike it. He loves to be talked to and smile. Ian has become a difficult sleeper. Some nights I feed him every 2 hours and other nights I feed him every three hours. I haven't found what seems to makes him sleep.
Sweet Angel! Where has the time gone? I can remember when we were celebrating his first Christmas and now he is growing up so fast. He has is moments of terrible three's (which are by far worse than the terrible two's) but he has a sweet heart and spirit. We really have tried hard this year to teach him the true meaning of CHRISTmas. Giving, loving, being with family and friends, and the birth of our Savior!
We decorated the tree one day while our daddy was at work. Connor did a great job hanging the ornaments where he thought they needed to go.

Mr. Cool matching shirts. I can only get away with dressing them alike for a little while longer before Connor starts having issues with it. So while I can I am going to.

Sweet boy!

A busy November

Connor, Ian, and I spent a few extra days in DC with James' parents before he drove down on Wednesday night for Thanksgiving break. Connor enjoyed getting to help Grandma and Papa put up ALL of their Christmas decorations. Connor also got to spend lots of time with his cousins, Mikhayla and Kassiday. I also discovered Ian does not like to be away from his bed!!!!

Helping Papa figure out the Snowman.
"Grandma they all need to be on the same side...they are friends!"

Lots of help from Connor.

The weather for the most part was typical west Texas weather....warm with the wind blowing about 80 mph! It did get chilly the last couple of days we were there...good thing all the decorations were up!
