Its the holiday season.....


Never is it more apparent that the holidays are upon us as when Starbucks brings out the eggnog! They started serving up the hot frothy bliss today. Sigh.... I love fall. The flip side is that its kind of a downer when they finally run out of the holiday cups and the seasonal flavors.

On a totally unrelated note, Ty received the awaited bundle from Toys-R-Us today. He won a contest from Chad the Chicken (thanks Chad) and he received a $50 gift card. That thougtful son of mine gave his sisters some money to use, too.

He ended up with THREE lego sets and the sisters each got a substantial toy, too. I was surprised at how much he could buy for $50. Here's a picture of the "lego assembly." I beleive Maddy is trying to eat a lego. I put the kids in the picture for effect because really its just me assembling the toy (not my favorite thing) as they search for all the pieces that were flung off the table in their excited haste to open the packages. The things we do for those kids....

I love your new blog header photo! Legos have been the popular toy around here lately as well...I think we'll be seeing some more around here after the holidays. ;) I'm so glad Ty won that drawing- what a deserving little guy.

I didnt' even notice the header until I came to the comments----how unobservant am I? Beautiful photo header!!

Ha...about the lego assembly. Been there too many times...except my kid finally figured out that I am not very adept at legos.

I love the new header you did! Did you take that picture? It's awesome. Oh, wow! I'm glad Ty got to use his gift certificate and I'm so glad he won!!!!! What a nice brother to share with his sister's too.
