Cortland getting a little stage fright. Can you tell this boy needs a haircut in a major way? I like his hair a little longer, but the man like side burns has gotsta go! He wasn't feeling like pictures of chex cereal was a good idea. Shy little guy!
This day was a hard day because it was the day of my cousins funeral. We took Paxton with us, and somehow he was such a relief to the whole thing. He brought smiles to peoples faces and every time I looked at him I was reminded of the circle of life. I am so happy he is part of ours.
So this year the kids got a swing set for Christmas and boy was it a project to set up. We even got the smalled one they offered! Uncle Marc, Grandpa Don and Daddy were out there all morning, all afternoon and finished around 6 pm! They were tired and sore the next day that is for sure!
I was really anxious to take all the Christmas decorations down this year just like every other year. I love putting it up and my home feeling so Christmasie, but man the clutter drives me nut. Right before we took it down I grabbed one more photo of outside. You cannot really tell what we had up, but I will. And just so you know, that is not our toy out front it is the neighbors toy and she had brought it over and left it on the lawn so the kids could play with it even though we have the same thing. She is a sweetie though!
