Michael was so excited about the monkeys on his new pajamas that he burst into song!

This is an earlier version of singing Elvis...I don't think we are going to be able to "lose" this ornament!
Ever since Halloween, Savannah has been running around in Michael's Pirate hat. She pulls it down over her eyes and peeps out through the end of the hat. She toddles around crashing into things and shouts "boo boo" (peek a boo) when she sees your feet!
Savannah was so eager to get in the tub, that she raced back before Stephen or I were back there and went in fully dressed! She was having a blast!
Michael loves the seals at the zoo, and apparently the seals love him too! He played like this for 20 mnutes!

This is an Elvis ornament we "aquired" during our bible study's Christmas party ornament exchange. Everyone was allowed to "steal" an ornament from someone whom opended before them, but no one dared "steal" this one from us and esp not from Michael! He was rocking out from the minute he saw it. There are more to come!

Here is the video from Michael's mothers day out Christmas program. Michael is such a riot! We prayed all morning that he would behave for it, and while he didn't exactly go along with the program, he didn't misbehave either. All the other parents laughed throughout the program at him and his teacher even told us after that they wanted him in the front because he loves to sing and is usually such a ham. He melted down right after this because he didn't want to leave the stage! Our first school program...definitely one for the books! (Sorry the quality isn't great-I had to compress it in order to upload it.)

When Savannah woke up, she put on her Snow White costume and we took some pictures. Stephen had to conduct drill practice with the ROTC students, so we loaded in the car and drove to school to run on the field and give him a chance to see the kids all dressed up.

On our way down to drop the kids off on Thursday, Savannah was content to hold: Pink Bear, her baby, a giggle-bug toy, a book, and her cup...could anything else fit on her lap? At one point she was even using her foot to help balance it all!

First, Michael got a big bed! We found a complete furniture set (with bunk beds) online and went ahead and bought it. Michael had destroyed his little toddler bed and was ready for a STURDY big bed! He loved helping Stephen put it together and was excited about it being in his room, but the first night he woke up crying and asked for his "little bed." He has settled in with it now and seems to be very happy with it.
We spent last Saturday at the Fall Harvest Festival at the AgriCenter with our good friends Brian and Cammie and their daughter Brinsley. Michael and Savannah love spending time with Brinsley (who is right between the two of them) and they all had a great time feeding the animals, picking pumpkins, dancing to live bluegrass music, and riding on the tractor-pulled hay rides.

We watch morning cartoons on the Disney Channel and one of our all-time favorite shows is a short, two minute filler in between shows called Choo Choo Soul. It involves an animated train and a singer and the kids LOVE it. They dance and sing (and learn how to moo like a cow, count, sing abc's...) I caught them this morning right as it was coming on and got their dancing on video. Savannah is just figuring out how to dance and Michael may have a future in break-dancing!
Yesterday it poured all day. Lucky for me it was a Tuesday and the kiddos were at Mother's Day Out! When Stephen got home, he took Michael out to play in the rain. This is funny because Michael usually hates getting rained on and it is really coming down and he doesn't seem to care at all!
