Teddy's haircut

Teddy got a haircut. It was always falling limp on his forehead and only looked good half the time. Although I loved his white locks, I think this hairdo will be much easier to maintain. Oliver's hair is pretty crazy right now too, but he wants to keep it long for a bit longer, so we'll try that out.

New hobby

I started a new hobby. I now sell Lipsense for fun. Lipsense is a lipstick that lasts up to 18 hours without ever rubbing off. You can touch your lips all that you want and it stays put. And it comes in really pretty colors. The other day I put some on and it lasted 24 hours! I'm excited to have all the lipstick I could ever want!


Treehouse Museum

The third day that Ruthie was here, we went to the treehouse children's museum. We love this museum. It is basically just full of toys from all over the world and different time periods to play with. And since we haven't been there for a good 6 months, it was so fun. We stayed for 3 hours, but I know the kids could have stayed for another 2 if we hadn't had to leave because of being in two hour parking. Their favorite part was the babies. We stayed there for a good 45 minutes in this section with each kid taking care of their own baby. Wrapping them up, changing their diaper and rocking them. It was really cute. There was a week where Oliver would tell me every day "when the baby girl comes out of your stomach, we'll name her Misty". Misty is the girl in Pokemon. Also, I'm not pregnant. But he will come over and pat my belly and say "your belly is looking so round. I'm excited for the baby girl to come out". Obviously Oliver wants a baby sister.

Felt Pokemon

One day Oliver just kept asking for a new Pokemon named Dedenne. I kept asking how he was going to get it and he'd say, you are going to make it! So I finally found the energy to try it out. Now we have a Dedenne and a Pokedex.

Merry Christmas 2016!

So this year we didn't get anywhere close to getting family pictures taken, so I decided that our Christmas picture could be very simple and display the cute ornaments that I have spent way too much time making. Oliver is in love with Pokemon, so what started as making 3 Pokemon ornaments turned into 16 Pokemon ornaments and 8 other random ornaments, plus another 14 to give away as gifts. Whoo. But they are pretty cute. You'll notice in these pictures that these boys have the craziest smiles, if you can even call them that. They look so cute posing since they are saying over and over "cheese and bacon" and "cheese and hamburgers", but the pictures seem to only catch the crazy parts of the phrase. Oh well.


 Teddy and Oliver also had dentist appointments. Oliver did great as usual. I've never had a problem with him. But it was Teddy's first one, and although he looks like he cooperated great, he didn't. He was wiggling all over the place and only let them look in his mouth for a total of 2 seconds. He needs a frenulectomy though, so I  wanted to bring him in to make sure that he really needed one. The little thing that connects your top lip to the gum needs a little bit of laser trimming. Which of course he'll need anesthesia to do. They said we should get it done before he turns 5 to keep from having a permanent gap between his front two teeth since the skin thing goes all the way between his teeth.

Fall and Winter

Remember last year when I posted about all the leaves falling off of our big tree all on the same day? Well, it happened again. So fun to go out and have so many leaves to play in. It really is a kids dream.

These are some random pictures that I found on my camera. I think they are a good 8 months old. But they are cute.
