Dump Everything, Choo Choo and Rise Up!

We were honored to celebrate the sweet lives of Drew and Levi this morning at their joint birthday party. I debated saving this one {graciously taken by B.Hood} for our Christmas Card- considering it's so us! However, you know the perfectionist in me, insists on a "traditional" picture.
Running a little off schedule, we loaded up and headed to Lion's Park to celebrate the precious life of little Samuel. We love our friends and their sweet parties.
After a nap, Griffin got hauled over to the Hillman's {BIG thank you to Jennifer!} until halftime so I could tailgate and watch the game with the boys. Lucky me and good win for the Bears!

Special Day

More and more, it seems as though Little Brother really wantsto start more and more independent activities. It's all so bittersweet. Today he wanted to brush his teeth, so we opened his first, little boy toothbrush. Since he has almost all of his teeth, we scrubbed and worked to clean his little mouth. He loved every minute, until I had to take the toothbrush from him.  Big Brother was only a step behind, ready to demonstrate and help.
The boys went to Cafe Cappichino, in the rain, to celebrate Jennifer's birthday! We ate, played outside and thanked God for our sweet, sweet friend!

Silly Spoon

Creighton spent his dinner time making silly faces for the camera. Griffin spent his dinner requesting, by grunting, to eat with a spoon. He also insisted on feeding himself with the spoon!

Dinner time always gets more and more interesting!

Griffy Goes to Bed {So Easily!}

Didn't I already mention how different our boys are?!?! Griffin is ready for bed by 8 o'clock at night. Creighton would stay up until ten. Griffin just gets hugs and kisses, an occasional book reading, a short prayer and plopped down in his crib. No whines, no peeps, just rolls on his side, waits to be covered up and somehow falls asleep, in the dark, on his own. Creighton still wants to be read to, prayed with and then have someone  Mommy cuddle with him until he falls asleep.

I love the differences!

Dedicating Griffin

Surrounded by family and friends and our church body, we dedicated Grffin to the Lord. What a special time for us as we pray his little life will be use for the Kingdom.

Big Day with the Big Boys

Creighton and Benjie went on their first Dove Hunt of the season! Creighton also went to the first home game for the BU Bears football today. Pop-Pop and Uncle John David went along with him and Benjie. The Bears won and the dove hunting was successful.

When Brother's Away

While Big Brother was at school this morning, Brother Bear found himself nice and cozy in Big Brother's bedroom. He loves to play at the train table.
Big Brother was so tired from school, that after fighting falling asleep for a few hours, he crashed in his big boy chair. I found him surrounded by many books and was beginning to wonder why he was sleeping so long into the evening. I bet he didn't fall asleep for a while!
And, while the boys slept, I prepared a pork taco dinner for two different families, assembled with sides, dessert and breakfast for the next day! After we delivered the food, the four of us met the Hillmans at LaFiesta for fajitas. I was too tired to cook for us :)
