Go Carts!

We were out running around in Dallas and Troy got the really great idea to take Tyler to a go cart place. And this woul have been a great idea if Tyler was 2 inches taller. They did let Tyler ride around once, thankfully. There would have been a serious meltdown if they didn't. Tyler loved it and keeps asking to go back. I tell him he needs to eat his veggies to grow bigger. Guess what he wanted for his snack the next day??? A bowl of peas. What a good boy! He is well on his way to growing bigger.

Daddy and Tyler ready to go!

Ali wanted to go so bad.

Tyler is loving his monster truck! It didn't work so well in the back yard, so Troy decided to take it out front. He is a pro and took right too it.

Christmas Morning!!!!

I have been looking forward to Christmas morning for months! This year is just going to be magical. Tyler is so into everything Christmas and its so much fun.

We had to wait for everyone to wake up to open presents but I let him open his stocking first thing.

Presents time!!!! Tyler is beyond excited and has been so patient. He did such a good job passing out all the presents and putting them in piles.

Opening presents Ali style

Being such a good boy, helping clean up all the wrapping paper

Chrstmas Eve!

Santa came!!!! I can't wait to see the look on Tyler's face when he wakes up tomorrow. He is gonna be in heaven. He has been patiently waiting for him for a month now.

First Class

Ahhh living the luxury life LOL I love flying first class (who doesn't). Its so awesome when I am alone with both kids. There's more room. They shower the kids with snacks. Surprisingly, everyone is super nice to us. Of course my kids are little "angels" :) Actually they were quite perfect on this trip home. Ali fell asleep in my arms with little effort and Tyler played like a good boy. After Ali slept she stole Tyler's seat while he played on the floor for a bit.

Last Dinner in Atlanta

Our time in Atlanta is almost over:( We had a really good visit. Its always nice to come here and visit. I have to travel away from home but I get a bit of a break from the kids because there are so many baby sitters around.

Tonight we went to dinner at my Dad's. Marcia made a really yummy pork loin and we all hung around till Ali was done.

Tyler being a great big brother, teaching Ali how to play with this toy.

Ali looking out the window at the dogs.

Ali begging for food. She is always "starving"

Tyler and Grandpa wrestling

I love the pure joy on his face here. He had so much fun wrestling with Grandpa.

Ali and her Great Grandma playing

Grandpa trying to prolong our visit by making Miss Fussy Pants happy. He had a lot of fun trying but it didn't really change her mood. She was ready for bed.

Children's Muesum

Today we ventured to downtown Atlanta. We were supposed to go snow tubing at Stone Mountain but it was supposed to rain. So they closed it down. Change of plans we decided to visit the Children's museum in Downtown Atlanta. It was AWESOME! Both kids had a blast. We were there for about 3-4 hours. We tried to leave to eat lunch but it was poring down rain, so we went back inside. The kids ate what I brought for them and continued to play.

All ready to play!

Grocery Shopping

Ali climbing EVERYTHING! She is such a little climber.

The worlds BEST train table. Tyler was in some serious heaven here. You have no idea how long he played here.

We tried to escape for lunch but that didn't last too long. We made it across the street and it started pouring. We hid from the rain inside a parking garage until is slowed down enough for us to walk back. Here is us "hiding".

Helping Grandpa put the pipes together.

Ali playing in the "garden"

She is determined to get this ball but she won't stand up to do it. Funny Girl

Got it!

Tyler fishing. He loved this too. This and the train table were the biggest hits for him.

We weren't even out of the parking garage and little Miss was passed out. She was so tired and didn't get her morning nap.

And this was little man after his bath. We were watching a movie and I look down and he's passed out on my arm. He never falls asleep like this. It was so sweet.
