While Caleb has been sick, Abby has been happy as a clam! Poor thing has had to entertain herself quite a bit, which has made for MANY laughs for Momma listening to her. This afternoon she was talking to her Care Bear and Mr. Bear about changing their pants cuz they were stinky. She makes me laugh.
This picture below was Daddy's idea, but you have to imagine that Abby's been trying to figure out a way to get Aiden in this stroller since he came home from the hospital! Poor Aiden. . .he could be in for a lifetime of stuff like this. At least he only has one big sister. . .if he were the youngest AND the only boy, well then I'm sure we'd see him in her doll dresses too.
And last but not least, here are our two bums as they watch one of their movies. Grammy and Pappy got them these bean bag chairs for Christmas, and now they think they need their "blue and purple chairs" anytime they watch a movie. The bags are a little big to keep in our living room so this requires Mommy or Daddy to bring them up and down the stairs every so often. At least they're light!
We hope everyone has a very SAFE and Happy New Year!!

Our little musician. She also LOVES to sing and will just break into song wherever she is.
They both like to play with the Nativity set (or 'tivity as Abby calls it). Here, Abby had all the angels and wise men lined up. I guess they had to wait in line to get in to see baby Jesus.
Abby and new baby brother Aiden. She and Caleb both think he's kinda cool.
My mom unpacked all my old bridesmaid dresses. They are now for Abby to play dress up. This was actually the dress Mom wore for the "Culver's Prom" but she kept it with my stuff for future use. Abby sure liked it!
Caleb playing his game on Pappy's computer. He really liked his puzzle games. Of course he only wanted to play whenever Pappy would sit down to do something on the computer (which really was quite often).
Pappy asked Caleb if he wanted to help put this TV stand together. I was in the other room and this is what I kept hearing. . .Pappy: "Caleb hand me [insert part name]. Abby, you're in the way." I think Caleb was a good helper. . .Abby, not so much.
In the theme of dress up, Grammy made the kids costumes to be Mary and Joseph with Aiden as baby Jesus. It was ADORABLE!! She even taught them to sing "Away in a Manger" and they sat in their costumes and sang for us. The first picture was the dress rehearsal for Pappy and Mommy, but when it came time for the actual performance (in front of Daddy, Uncle Chris and Auntie Em) they didn't do as well. They sang the first line, then Caleb said, "my song has spots" (which means there are skips like on his DVD's). Nice.
As they were getting ready, Abby was dressed as Mary and said, "I'm Mary and you're Joseph," but Caleb said, "No, Abby, I don't have my costume on yet." After the "performance" Grammy was getting them into their clothes again, and little Caleb announced, "I'm a boy again!" Guess he knows the difference between being in character and being yourself. . .
The three kiddos together. Like I said. . .Caleb and Abby think he's kinda cool. Oh, and by the way, I promise we do comb Abby's hair everyday.Christmas Time!!!
The first Christmas gifts were from Gran-Pappy, G-G (Great-Grammy), Uncle Rich, Miss Kerry, and Miss Marissa, Uncle Chris and Auntie Em, and Grammy and Pappy.
