A couple of weeks ago we went over to my cousin Candice's for her son Dylan's birthday. We had food, cake, and fun! After my grandparents both passed away last year, it is rare that I get to see my cousins. It always meant a lot to me to see my extended family, especially since I am the only child. It is important to me for Jake and Ben to know their cousins. Candice called and asked us to join them to celebrate Dylan's 4th birthday. He is the same age as Jake, so I really want them to know each other even though we live a little far. Dylan loves Transformers, so he had a Transformer cake and even received several for presents. Jake had a great time playing with all of Dylan and Cole's toys. He always enjoys seeing them! Happy Birthday Dylan and thank you for having us over to help you celebrate!

I have been telling Jake we would paint on the easel Nana gave him one day while Ben was napping. Those of you that know Ben, know why this is. While Ben was taking a nap today and it was snowing outside, Jake did some painting. His preschool teacher told us he loves to paint! He had quite a few creative stories to go along with his paintings.
We don't see too much snow here in Georgia, but when we do, it is a big deal and we love it! Today we started seeing some snowflakes fall around 2 or so. Jake and Ben went out on the back deck to see it. Later around 5 before it got dark, we bundled up and headed out to play in the snow. I told Jake last night it was going to snow today. I picked him up from school today and he looked out the window and said "Mommy, there isn't any snow". He loves it! Ben didn't get to see it last year, so he enjoyed it today too!

Well Christmas went as fast as it came! I never knew how much fun Christmas with kids would be. I think I was more excited than them. Ben doesn't usually do too well opening gifts, but he is definitely getting the hang of it. We woke up that morning, ate breakfast, then opened our presents. I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays this year and that you have Happy New Year!

After the kids opened their gifts from Santa and us, we headed over to my parents' house to exhange gifts, eat dinner and spend time with the family. We had a great time!
