A monster truck and some new clothes!

Ephraim got a lot of Sponge Bob things this year for some reason, haha.

On Monday I took Ephraim to spend his birthday money from Grandpa and Grandma James. He picked out a Captain America action figure, a water gun and some bubbles. Thanks Grandpa and Grandma!!

The end of another year has come. We have been so blessed this year and are so thankful to have all of our families! We had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed a few days together and with friends and the Smith family here. We didn't get a good family picture for Christmas but hopefully we'll get a nice one this coming spring. We hope you all had a great Christmas too and hope you all have many blessings in the New Year!

Enoch's First Knock Knock Joke!

We had to share with you Enoch's first knock knock joke! He is doing very well at copying things and is already saying short sentences. We're happy to see that he already has a sense of humor too! We were eating dinner when he started to tell his Dad a joke. Before I could get the camera out the punch line was "I see you!" but it is very cute nonetheless!

The boys got some fun toys! Their Grandpa Smith and their uncles gave them a race track! The best part is it doesn't need batteries, you just wind it to make it go!

One of Ephraim's favorites is his remote controlled dump truck and Enoch loves his spinning car track! Elijah got a nice magic set, silly mom didn't get a picture of him with it but I'm sure he'll be doing some tricks for her again soon!

Ephraim outgrew his tricycle so he got a big boy bike to ride around, Enoch has inherited the tricycle. Ephraim is excited that he can keep up with his big brother now! One of the good parts about it not snowing yet is that we can all go out and ride for a few minutes!

The boys on Christmas Day after church. We had a wonderful musical program that we participated in that day, we combined with the other ward in the building so the choir sounded fantastic! The boys were very excited to get home and play though. As you can see, the last thing Ephraim wanted to do was pose for Mom.

I went to Elijah's parent day at school before Christmas break and the parents helped the kids make houses out of graham crackers, frosting and candy. If you look closely you will see Santa Bear (we used gummy bears) being pulled by his 9 reinbears.

It's toe sock time! Christmas marks the beginning of toe sock season. I tried to share with the boys but they're a little big still. I think Ephraim almost looks like he has hobbit feet. :)

At the beginning of December we set up our Christmas tree and decorations, and had some fun at our ward's Christmas party!
