Big Digger

As I mentioned in an earlier post, our landlords are having a driveway put in for our houses.

Now there's something that motivated our boys to get dressed a little quicker in the mornings! You see they were allowed to sit and watch the digger from the windows after they were dressed, bed made, teeth brushed and ready for school! I know, I am the nicest mommy ever. Well, maybe it didn't really motivate Ethan but it sure worked for the other 2!
This is also why the Internet and phone were down for a week! It was worth it though, our driveway was completed this morning and we'll be parking in it next week! Huge Christmas Gift (as Ethan called it) since we sometimes have to park blocks away and with groceries and small children, and that is not always convenient in the rain!

Just thought you'd like to see the digger too! (Poor workers didn't sign a release so don't tell them they've been exploited on my blog!)

Charlie's 1st Annual Christmas Cookie Party

Since I love to bake and the boys seem to love to bake with me, we decided to have a few Christmas Cookie Decorating Parties this year! We hope to make it a tradition here! Charlie's party was last week before our Internet went down. Most of his friends get out of school at noon the kiddos and mums came for lunch and cookie decorating.

It was great fun and they loved eating the icing and using it to decorate their cookies! He invited his buddies Sol, Lucas, Lewis, Katie, Lucy and Casper to his party.

Reindeer Food

Jingle Bells

Christopher learned how to play Jingle Bells from his guitar teacher and he taught Ethan. The boys practiced for me and Charlie felt they needed a Little Drummer Boy too! So fun to hear their progress in their music tuition!
