Now, I will readily admit that neither of these experiences are "blog worthy", but I have so much guilt over giving my boys enough attention and love that I wanted to remember a day where I got to enjoy individual time with each of my boys and the glimpse I got into a future that will be, hopefully, filled with long talks and, of course, yummy treats.
Tis the season for nostalgia and goodies and I had my dose of both today.

But, then the bands came...
Matts also loved "Grandpa Don's" bands.

Which leads me to my next thought, I'd like to wish Reed a very, very Happy Belated Birthday (31, but who's counting). I'm not good at expressing myself, but I feel so blessed to have married such a wonderful man. We have been through so many events, both good and hard, and Reed is always so strong and "definantly" makes life more enjoyable. So, to a amazing father, husband and friend, I hope you have another exciting and enjoyable year.

Joie de vivre is a term used to express a cheerful enjoyment of life. Joie de vivre, as one scholar has written, "can be a joy of conversation, joy of eating, joy of anything one might do… And joie de vivre may be seen as a joy of everything, a comprehensive joy, a philosophy of life, a Weltanschauung. Robert's Dictionnaire says joie is sentiment exaltant ressenti par toute la conscience, that is, involves one's whole being." (Thank you Wikipedia :)
Happy Birthday Baby Gray, we love you.

Gray is officially walking. In fact, after Sacrement today he just took off down the aisle and followed Matts to nursery.
Gray has been sick for over a week. He has some kind of nasty virus with blisters on his throat that involves alot of crying and not alot of sleeping. I don't think I've slept more than 2 hours at a time since Monday. Poor kid, I think it's even harder because we're so spoiled by his pleasant personality.

So how did this happen?
Well, Walker's house is right on the Savannah river and we took his boat out for an evening ride. Not only did he let Matts sit in the drivers seat...
he let him drive most of the way. He loved how pushing forward made us all jolt and go faster and pulling back jarred us to a stop. He was incredibly pleased with his new found power and surprisingly, he steered us pretty straight - even when Walker let him go under the bridge (asking for trouble from our little crunching obsessed boy).

The happy couple

New BedSaturday we had the rare pleasure of all taking naps at the same time. When I woke up I went to check on the boys. Matts was nowhere! You would think I'd be getting used to losing my boys :), but I panicked. We finally found him sleeping under his bed in the "meerkat cave".
This update cements my status as a mom. But, I LOVE our new stroller. After weeks of stroller drama I finally got the perfect stroller. At first I didn't even consider the Phil and Ted, it's a little pricey and I thought that it would be mean to stick a kid in the basket. But, we went to the store, tried it out and Matts loved the "secret" seat. It's so compact and easy. Plus, now when Matts is in preschool I can take Gray running in the single mode. I'm down to one stroller and it does it all!
