Christmas Eve

 It was fun being in York for Christmas Eve. We went to the Christmas Eve service at our old church. That place has such good memories for me. It's where I met Nate. We still have a lot of great friends there and got to spend time with them.
 Asher refused to smile and insisted on making his fish face.

Dexter spent the trip working on his first two teeth and then getting an ear infection. The plus side was he was always up for cuddling. He loved hanging out with Grandpa.

We are back now and working on unpacking and cleaning up the house. Our New Years Eve involves pizza, a kids movie, and going to bed early!

Christmas Part 1

We always travel up to Pennsylvania for Christmas. Part of me really wishes we could wake up in our house for Christmas. This year we decided to pretend Christmas was a week early so the kids could experience the holiday at home. We did it last Saturday and it was so much fun. We spent the entire day in our pajamas playing with toys. 
 The kids waiting patiently to open presents.

 Asher really wanted Santa to bring him a new sword since his last one broke.
 When I ask him if he is spider man he always responds "No mom, I'm just pretending".
Dexter took advantage of having everything to himself while the big kids ate waffles.

Nights with Daddy


That's how many crazy kiddos we currently have. Last week I had a night out with some friends for dinner up in Virginia. Nate stayed at home with as we like to call them Thing 1, Thing 2, and Thing 3. I am so grateful that he is such a good dad and gives me night out. I'd like to write more, but Thing 3 has crawled into a corner and can't figure a way out.

The conversations I have with Asher and Piper constantly amuse me. Here are a few examples.

This morning while I was getting Piper dressed:

Me: Piper you are sassy.
Piper: Not sossy, cute
Me: You are right Piper, you are cute
Piper: Not cute, Poper es pretty

Yesterday I was giving Dexter some puffs and Asher took some. I told him not to eat them, they are baby food.

Asher: Mommy will the puffs make me big or little (he is always asking him what foods will make him big and strong)
Me: They will make you little
Asher: (getting a little concerned) Am I still four, or did they make me little?
Me: They made you turn three again
Asher: I DON'T WANT TO BE THREEEEEE (now he is crying)
Me: Asher don't worry, you are still four. Food can't make you little again.
Asher: Ok, (pauses for 30 seconds) can I be 28?

Sweet babies

 Piper got her hair cut this week, and it look so cute on her. It curled up a lot of she just looks so sweet. I remember how overwhelmed I felt with just Asher and Piper. It seemed so hard having two kids. Now when I just have two it seems so easy. Dex stayed at home with Nate while I took them out for dinner, a haircut, and frozen yogurt.
Dexter loves playing in his crib. He usually wakes up very happy from his naps.

Having a four year old around is hilarious. I especially love how Asher's imagination has been growing lately. Earlier this week he started pretending Jada and Bennett were around all the time. I'd catch him talking to them in his room and getting snacks out for them to eat. A few days ago he woke up and was acting a bit grouchy. I told him to sit at the table and I'd get him breakfast. He immediately started crying and whining. I asked him what was wrong and he replied "Jada is sitting in my seat".

On the same day I dropped him off at school. When I opened the door to get him out of the car he looked really sad. I asked him if he was ok and he said "My superpowers are gone".

Yesterday I went in their room to get some things and Asher shushed me and told me to be quiet. When I asked him why, he responded "Spiderman is sleeping in my bed".
