Eli sang in his Christmas program this week and we were so proud of him!  If you know our second child at all, you know he doesn’t like crowds and would be perfectly content staying at home with our family every day.  He did a great job, even participated in all the songs/hand motions, and looked very cute.  I asked him on the way home if he liked it because he hadn’t complained once about anything and he gave a quick “no”.  Even more reason to be proud; doing something he didn’t like without complaining.  🙂

He was very serious IMG_1208

Group shot, notice all the parents video taping! IMG_1217

A little smile afterwards! IMG_1233 

We went to our first Christmas tree farm this year and cut our own tree down rather than picking it out from Lowes!  It was a pretty day and the boys really enjoyed the adventure.  The tree that we ended up choosing is beautiful and actually made our house smell like pine!  It was great….until it fell over a week later.  But that’s a story for another post.

Holding the tree while Charlie cut it…not sure he’ll be able to hold it.IMG_1129

The first of many attempts to get a good kid shot.  Sammy’s really got the fake smile going on!IMG_1142

Abraham being choked by Eli, all for the sake of a good picture.  That’s my guy!  🙂IMG_1151

Eli and Abraham are definitely early risers and they sometimes get up before they’re really ready to wake up.  This morning they had some crazy hair and were in fussy moods.  So what do I do?  Ask Charlie to get the camera and take a few pictures, of course.

Just take a look at these grumps!IMG_1168

Finally, a smile.  Albeit a  strange one.IMG_1179
