The Polar Express PJ Party

after church today, we took sweet baby ethan to our friend Eugenia's house so she could watch him while kevin and i took myah and eli to birmingham at the McWane Center for a pj party and their FIRST movie, The Polar Express-IMAX-style. eli asked several times, "where esan?" (so sweet!) and during the movie, there was a baby crying behind us and he quickly turned around and said, "esan?" awwww! even after we got back in the car after dinner, he said, "go home? see esan?!" i love it!!!!
we weren't real sure how eli would do w/ such a big, loud movie-but he sat on my lap-quiet, no less-the entire movie and they both thought it was so fun!
after the movie, all kids wearing pj's (which all kids did!) got a jingle bell as we exited the theater...if you've seen the movie, you'll understand why they handed out bells...

after the movie, everyone went to the p.j. party where we had cookies, hot chocolate and chocolate milk-while good daddy stood in line...(you'll see what for in a minute)

yummy fun!

they were so patient and even got a little silly while waiting...

cuttin a rug...

and what kid doesn't love these ropey-line-marker-thingys?

still having fun while waiting our turn...

weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, daddy!

and who's the bigger sibling? almost our turn to see...

the kid in front of us was crying on santa's lap, which made eli a little leary at first-but he actually did great!

Eli: "hmmm. i wonder if he knows that i throw fits when i don't get my way! i am two, ya know-so surely, i'll be on the 'nice' list!" just in case, i'll just sit here looking cute!

after the party, we headed to our FAVE restaurant, chipotle and then made the hour-long trip back home to get our baby. eugenia, THANK YOU SO MUCH! we had SUCH a fun time w/ "the big kids" and we owe you bigtime for allowing us to do this!

deckin' the halls

we put up the Christmas tree and the kids' trees yesterday. we decided we're gonna make the trek back home to OK for the holidays, so we didn't do much decorating besides the stockings and the trees. kevin gets two weeks off from school-and we realized he may never get that much time off for C'mas again, so enid and tulsa-here we come!

eli and his cars "mis-mas" tree; ethan, we have one for you too, but you'll have to wait til next year!

ethan in the spotlight

eli walked up to me when i was carrying ethan and said "hold him?" he is LOVIN' his little brother? so, here's big bro holding little bro-on the floor! :)
another paci boy on our hands!

all three kiddos have loved playin the paci game w/ daddy!

a nose to gnaw on always feels so good to babies' gums!

i guess all those hours of watching kevin and i do P90X really was soaking into ethan's head; here he is at 10 mo's doing his first push-up! ha!

oh! and now he's ready to show off his stuff since he just got thru working out! :)

sorry little buddy-but it's just too cute NOT to put on the blog!

happy head ethan!
