Can you see who I am? I am...Super Mitch...if you got confused, let me turn around and show you my S on my back too. Sorry, I was not smiling today...it was just one of those days!
And the big boy Heath. He is loving that he gets prizes for going poopy in the potty and wants to try more often now. He was so funny...he would give me big smiles and as soon as the camera flashed, he would cover his eyes. Then he would say again Mommy...we got lots of cute pictures.
Okay, so I am not quite sure how it started, but I love to call my precious little girl Isabelle Gracie Lou. Isn't it cute? It just came out one day and she giggled, so I love it! She is showing off her long hair that we brushed for 10 minutes or so. She loves to get her hair brushed and tried to do it by herself after we were done.
And of course a shot of her smiling. Can't believe that the kiddos are growing up so fast! Can you believe the twins will be 2 years old in February? Oh how time flies!

So we had this great idea of bundling up the kiddos and going sledding on their new sleds from Grandma. The beautiful picture we had in our minds did not work out. We drove out to the golf course thinking we could gently pull them around and maybe let Heath bonzai down a few hills. We got out of the car to realize that it was COLD...and not just cold, but REALLY cold! The wind was howling and it was blowing snow everywhere. The twins continued to lose their gloves and the great picture we all had in our heads flopped. It was not a total loss though, we came home and Heath and Daddy sledded around the neighborhood. Daddy soon found out that Heath just wanted to be in our own backyard playing (where the wind was not howling!). They played outside and had fun! Would have been best to pull them around in the sleds in the backyard and quickly jump back in the house when it got cold. We will remember this next time!

Heath bundled up and loving it!

Well...it took some work, but we finally got Daddy to agree to our fabulous pajamas. I loved them and thought that they would be a great family tradition. Little does Daddy look ahead in to the future. Mitchie will fit in Heath's the next year, so we will only have to keep buying Heath and Isabelle a set every year and we can keep this thing going! I love Hanna Anderson and hope that they did well over the holidays! Too bad we didn't have Mommy's new camera for these pictures or we could have had a chance at all of us focusing for a couple of shots. There is always next year!
Here is Mommy and babies right before bed. Although Mommy is smiling her big smile, Isabelle has a huge handful of hair and is pulling hard!, Heath is screaming and ready for bed with his head down in absolute agony and Mitchie...well...looks gassy?!?!?! Anything you can do to get a picture, right? I was holding on to the three babies for dear life! Merry Christmas to all!

This is our little Hugh Hefner lounging around the house in his bath robe. He now LOVES his robe...and he got new slippers from Daddy and Mommy for Christmas!
Isabelle Grace in Papa's hat. She loves her Papa!
Oh my gosh Mommy, I found someone who looks just like me and loves to play patty cake! She is really cute! We should come visit her at Grandma's house more!
Mitchie Scott coming in, Isabelle Grace going out. They love playing at Grandma's house!
We heard a knock on the door and could not imagine who could be there the night before Christmas Eve... Mommy and I opened the door to hear beautiful voices. I loved them singing. Daddy ran upstairs with my brother and sister and they caught the tail end of it. We gave a donation to the American Red Cross when they were done. I really loved the carolers and hope that they come back and visit us next year! Merry Christmas to all!
Today, December 23rd, I went poopie on the big boy potty!! In this picture, you can see my John Deere potty chair, my toilet paper, my "dump" truck (my prize!) and my proud smile. Mommy and Daddy were so proud of me! They were dancing around doing the poopie dance for me. I think I might try to do this more often...and get the rest of my prizes from the "poop" jar. Yeah...Merry Christmas!

Heath and Daddy with Pistol Pete. We finally made it to our first Cowboy basketball game. Life has been busy and hectic (along with traveling!) and we were unable to attend a game until now. We had a good time and Heathie really enjoyed seeing Pistol Pete! He also enjoyed his cherry shaved ice...and the Cowboys won, so it was a great evening. Grandma stayed home with the twins and got them all tucked in and they were sleeping like the perfect angels that they are when we arrived home. Thanks Grandma!!!

Well, I went downstairs today to check on Heath and this is how I found him..proving to me that children can fall asleep anywhere!! He does love the garden that his Grammie got him, but he usually does not sleep in it with every quilt and blanket he can find downstairs. He is really in to watching Grand Canyon now (a special on Sleeping Beauty) and it apparently makes him fall asleep. Thought this was too cute to not post! There are days where even our big boy still needs a nap.

Okay, so for some reason, Heath started calling me Coco today. We could not figure out why, but he was saying everything to me and adding Coco to the end of it. When he and Mitchie were getting their baths tonight, he decided to start calling me Coco mommy. Who knows what goes through the mind of a three year old! Signing off...Coco mommy goes ni-ni!
