I threw Jake, Naomi and Luke in the car to watch the re-enactment. It didn't help that it cost me another $8 to enter the park where the blessed event was taking place!

A small miracle. He's decided that he wants to try out Snowboarding! I'd been looking on craigslist forever. I couldn't find anything in his size. I finally callesd a Sports Authority miles away that had an old model board and boots that they were selling at the end of season closeout. I had 12 minutes to get there before closing. I jumped in the car. I pulled up 2 minutes before closing. I ran back to the tech shop. The tech was working on getting the bindings on for me. He looked at me and said, "you're getting a great deal. I don't think this board has ever seen the snow! I just found it in the back." I said a silent prayer of thanks as I payed $69 for a new board and boots...the perfect size for my little buddy!

Naomi's FIRST ever dance recital. We were 20 minutes late and everybody was waiting for us. Seriously?? I was humiliated beyond belief. Every mom and dad and grandma and grandpa were sitting there...waiting for us.
A month ago I realized that James would be out of town A LOT the first little part of December. I called my mom and asked if she could send my dad out to keep us safe. I tend to get nervous when James isn't home. I should be used to it...and I kinda am. But I was having a moment one night...and my dad obliged. He didn't even call me a wimp. He just came...
And made the boys a terrarium. The only thing Jake wanted for Christmas was a Venus Fly trap. After Grandpa came...he had to come up with something else he wanted for Christmas...
Jake has been wanting to go to the Melting Pot for two years now. It's a little pricey...so...guess who made his dream come true???

He's our Mander. Tonight at Family Home Evening he just climbed right up on the shoe box where the kids stand for brag time. He stood there in his little footed jammies as we all talked about what a great baby boy he was. He just smiled his biggest grin. Not sure if he really knew what we were saying, but he was well aware that we were all adoring him...and he didn't mind one bit. And neither do we. We love the Commander. Thanks for bringing so much joy to our little home, Mander. We love you, buddy!

"Mom, did you know that we are really, really rich?"
"we are rich, I know, but why do you say that?"
"Mom, just look around this house...look at it...every single one of us has our own bed to sleep in...and look at my bed mom...I even have TWO blankets on my bed."
Oh, Jake. I can't even imagine what this world would be like if everyone were just like you. A prefect world, for sure. THank you for being better than your mom. THank you for being an example. Jake...thank you for being YOU. I love you, buddy.
