Happy New Year!

Happy New Years Eve everyone. We decided to do a few fireworks before putting Jessica and Will in bed. It was fun and very casual.

Will and I were deciding if we wanted to do anything with our friends, or invite some people over, but we weren't sure if we'd be up to staying up 'till midnight. : / I guess we're getting old and boring. Anyway, we at least celebrated with the kids, even if it was at 6:00 pm instead of midnight!

(Notice the shorts?! It is a cool 60 degrees tonight. I love Florida!)

Love my craft cutter!!

I got a digital craft cutter for Christmas, and I love it! I got it to help me with my scrapbooking, but I'm having lots of fun using it to cut vinyl for my walls. Here's my latest project. This is a picture of one of our walls in our great room.

Christmas at the Curtis home!

We had a great Christmas this year. Jessica (almost 5 now!) is the perfect age for enjoying everything about Christmas. She wrote a list to Santa and loved the advent calendars counting down the days 'till Christmas. She loved the Christmas songs and especially all the presents under the tree! Willbon (3) didn't seem to grasp everything that was going on, but he understood the presents! It was a miracle that the gifts under the tree prior to Christmas actually made it 'till the 25th without being opened! It was so fun hearing Jessica and Will out in the living room early Christmas morning as they looked at the presents Santa had brought.

Will's family drove out to spend Christmas with us, and we had a lot of fun. Jessica and Will never seemed to run out of energy (not that that's surprising!) and Jonathan was content so long as someone was holding him or paying attention to him (also not surprising!). We had a nice time together watching movies, playing games, watching the children, and eating WAY TOO MANY sweets.

Jessica and Will had a Christmas program at the preschool, and I am so glad that I was there with my camera. Will was in a BAD mood, and during the whole program he was either crying, hiding on the floor, or plugging his ears while the rest of the children sang. It was pretty funny (and sad) but mostly I'm glad that I have it all on camera!

During the Thanksgiving program just last month he was up on stage singing louder than anyone else up there and loving every minute of it. Ahhhh three year olds!! You just never know how things are going to turn out.

I also got some new pictures of the three children with their cute Christmas outfits on. Somehow with 4 adults helping I managed to get a few good ones.

We had a wonderful Christmas, and we hope that you all did too. I guess I oughta take my tree and decorations down, but I'm putting it off because I want Christmas to last as long as possible.

Christmas is coming the baby's getting fat

Sorry it's been awhile since I posted. Things around here are pretty crazy. I have all three children on antibiotics for one thing or another, and poor Jonathan is having some breathing problems. The doctor thinks he has Bronchiolitis (basically baby asthma), so we've been doing breathing treatments 4 times a day to try and help him breath easier. It finally seems to be helping, but he's been pretty miserable the last few days. In the meantime we're trying to get ready for Christmas. Hopefully we'll all be better by then. (fingers crossed!)
So despite all the things on my to-do list, I couldn't resist taking a few minutes to get these pictures of Jonathan. He weighs in at 22 lbs, and I knew I had to get some pictures highlighting all his precious rolls!
