Bubble Wrap

While we were unpacking Christmas decorations, Benjamin grabbed some bubble wrap and began to jump on it to make it pop. 

William...thought it was pretty funny!

Putting up the Christmas Tree

 When Lindsey, Benjamin, and William were here, my guy and I took Benjamin to pick out a Christmas tree.
This is the one he chose...
 We had a little problem...we set it up...poured water in the tree stand...and it was leaking.  RATS!  Out went the tree...out went the tree stand....and a new stand was bought the next day....and the tree was set up again.
William was interested in what was in all the boxes....
 Seeing as the boxes were fairly empty, he went back to his toys...putting blocks inside these little cubes...

This ceramic Christmas tree was made by my mom... Saddie!
Benjamin absolutely loved it...loved taking the little 'lights' on and off and rearranging them... looking under the tree to see how the lights worked.

 Sweet!
 We got the lights on, then Benjamin was enjoying helping put the ornaments on the tree... I loved watching him decide where to put them...
I love this picture...
 Lindsey used to always love to decorate the tree...

 William would have rather been under the tree...but it was potty time...
a successful potty time, I might add!

Singing in the rain!

 My guy went down to Lindsey's on December 1st...picking up Emerson on the way.  They both had on their raingear...enjoying the puddles! 

Aren't they precious?
