We spent Christmas in Maryland with my family this year. We had a great time and have lots and lots of pictures to show (who doesn't on Christmas!!)! Sorry this post is so late but I forgot the number one essential (our camera!) and so I got all the Christmas pictures off my parents camera this past weekend when I was out there!

My munchkins and me on Christmas Eve
Natalie LOVES chocolate...she takes after her daddy!
The boys "entertaining" the kids...playing Wii!
Josh called Grandpa "Santa" all night long because he had a Santa hat appropriate!
The munchkins opening their Christmas PJ's on Christmas Eve.
Hanging out with daddy in their new PJ's!
Love this girl!

Josh opening Uncle Aaron's present on Christmas Eve.
He LOVED the swords Aaron got him! Sometimes he is a little too rough with them though and they get put on timeout!
Helping Uncle Aaron bring in wood for the fire.
Natalie playing with her toy from Santa.
Josh seeing what Santa brought him.
The tree.
Grandpa and Grandma (my mom and dad) going through their stocking.
Natalies first baby doll.
Josh in his dinosaur cave with all his stuff.
We played this game over and over and over (and did I say over?!) I am a pro at putting Don't Break the Ice back together!
We had to take a break opening presents. Josh wanted to play with his toys!!
Grandpa and Josh riding the horsies at the park. Josh's hands were cold so Grandpa gave him his gloves.
Grandpa and Josh
Grandpa and Natters
Josh and Natalie
Uncle Max and Josh playing who knows what! Matthew is such a great Uncle and Josh just adores him!
We had a great Christmas and always love going to visit "Pee-pa and Maa-ma" as Joshua calls them!

I have been such a slacker when it has come to blogging! It has been a little while since I have posted new pictures of the munchkins. Here are quite a few pictures of what we have been up to lately!
Partners in crime!
We had the stomach bug go through our house. Mark wasn't feeling well so Josh curled up next to him and they watched a movie together.
At the Rainforest in Cleveland.

Josh and I watching the monkeys. There was a baby monkey with its family and Josh was fascinated by them...of course...probaby because he thinks he is a monkey!
Daddy-daughter time! She LOVES her daddy! The moment he gets home from work she lights up and can't crawl fast enough to get to him!
When I was a little girl I remember putting my little brother Aaron into my baby doll strollers so I had to smile when Josh asked me to put Natalie in is Tonka Truck! He pushed her all around the house and she loved it!

He even took her back to his bedroom and got her a toy to play with. What a sweet boy!

Josh wanted a turn when he was done...he was a little bit too heavy for Natalie!

Josh was picking on Natalie so it felt like she would not stop whining. Finally the whining stopped and I come out to find Mark feeding her a Snack Pack! Of course she loved it...who doesn't?!
That is a face of pure enjoyment!

Happy baby after church.

Love her!

She was being such a sweet girl I couldn't stop taking pictures!

I know this was picture overload! But yes, we are still alive and well here in Ohio! We are getting a little case of cabin fever because we are getting so much snow. And it is so cold outside that it is just so much easier and warmer to stay in and have lazy pajama days! (those are the best days anyways!)
