thanksgiving....

well it feels like forever since i last posted! sorry about the wait, with trips 'home', thanksving, drama, new car shopping, black friday, so on and so forth....we've been busy!

thanksgiving has come and gone and winter is here. we had our first snow last weekend, bubba was SO flippin' excited even though it was completely melted by noon. pooks is sitting up by himself now, weighing in at 18lbs 10oz. its great because now that he is a little older, him and bubba are starting to really interact. its amazing how much pooks looks up to him already. today we took pics for the Christmas cards, so friends and family, watch out! you'll soon have a holiday card with bubba and pooks!

in other news, we are getting a new car! holla! its about dang time, i hate the explorer. we're getting a Chrysler Pacifica on Thursday...it'll be either blue or silver, they are pretty sharp looking. it'll seat 6 people, have airbags in all 3 rows and is more fuel efficient since its a crossover. IT IS NOT A MINIVAN:) its a SUV but lower like a sedan, hence a crossover :)
anywho, on to the pics:

my kids...

...are growing up too fast!!!

pooks is 6 months old today. thats half a year. thats terrifying. i remember finding out i was pregnant again and it feels like yesterday. he had his first stage two baby food yesterday. he is starting to get really good at sitting up. he knows how to drink out of a sippy cup. he weighs almost 19lbs.

bubba got his first 'big boy' haircut today at the barber shop. the barber used clippers and i think i was more afraid than bubba was. he talks. all. the. time. he loves and recognizes football-even if its on the radio. he says no, and means it. he says cheese and smiles. he can spot a digger from a mile away. (seriously, even if its a mile away)he knows where his 'bell-bows' are. he can point out things that are blue.

i feel like my babies are no longer babies.

*sigh*

i thought i'd summarize a whole day in our house, complete with some pictures. its really not too hard with 2 under 2...suprising i know but really, honestly, most days its not too bad!

Mommy woke up when she heard me talking to my toes:She couldn't take a picture though, my brother was still sleeping!

More pics...

we went to nana and papa's for halloween. here are a few pics. bubba wore his costume almost all day, pooks however wore his for a total of maybe 3 minutes...added up over the whole day! he was not being a skunk, that was that, so no more skunk pics :(

bubba however decided that this trick or treating thing was pretty frickin' cool. he did not like when trick or treaters knocked on the door...he hated seeing nana give away candy to whackjobs in costumes. so we decided to take him to a couple houses....he caught on quick! suddenly this was a good idea and he had it down. he would even try to say 'trick or treat' although it came out more like 'it-teet', he did try. he also would say it while knocking (slapping) the door or ringing the bell. then when the person opened the door, he just held up his bucket, got his candy, then said 'thanks' and 'bye guys' while walking off. it was SO SO SO cute! i'm pretty sure he had WAY too much candy for someone his size but its only one day out of the year.

anywho, thats all for the boys. i should get some pics that a graphic artist who works in my dad's building took, i'll update when i can. jim managed to get both boys-smiling-TOGETHER-in one pic. can't wait to get it!!! well, here are a couple i did get:
bubba with his loot:


sharing a sucker with his baby brother:

bubba is a rockstar, he can play with both hands at the sametime, by himself!:
hmm....pooks pretending to be bubba?:
