Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We were able to spend Christmas with Stephen's family this year.

It is Vance's fifth birthday! He is growing up so quickly. This year he has gotten to be tall and skinny. All of his baby chub is gone and he is a boy. Vance has been a big helper to me especially with being a big brother to Porter. He is almost always willing to play with Porter and bring me things that I need to take care of him. When I asked Vance who his best friend was the other day he told me that it is Tanner. They are great friends, but still brothers and don't always getting along. :) Vance continues to improve with his speech and we love to listen to all of the things he has to tell us. He loves puzzles, maps, blocks, and things of that nature. He has really enjoyed having preschool this fall and winter at home with me and Tanner. We love having Vance as part of our family.

We celebrated Vance's birthday yesterday with my parents and sister even though his birthday isn't until tomorrow. We also did a little opening of Christmas gifts as well.
Vance got these magnetic tangrams for Christmas from my parents.

Last week it felt like Spring was around the corner (I wasn't fooled). Today, however we woke up to more snow. Not as much as last time, but enough that the boys wanted to play in it.
The last snow we had was very powdery and not good for snowman building. This time it was nice and wet so Stephen was kind enough to go out and help the boys make a snowman. In other words, Stephen made a snowman.

I just can't believe how fast babies grow and change.

First off, I just wanted to mention that Mommy's Little Helper is being featured on ABC and 123 today if you are interested in checking that out here is the link.
Last night we went to our ward's Christmas party. I forgot to take my camera, but I snapped a picture of the boys before we left since I made them get in festive looking clothes. They all sat on Santa's lap at the same time and Porter bawled. Poor kid. :) The was a rough minute for him. It was the first time for them all to sit on Santa's lap and they did a great job. They were both a little tentative about the whole thing so I suggested that they do it together. That seemed like a good idea to them.On a side note, I wore two completely different socks to the event, got home walked around without shoes on for about an hour before I noticed they weren't mates. Good thing I was wearing boots that covered my socks up!

My brother, Glen is on a mission for our church and so I thought I would take a picture of the boys with signs that say "Merry Christmas Uncle Glen". I was not naive enough to believe that it would be an easy task, but I guess I like to give myself a challenge. Let's just say that I sent Glen more than one picture so since I could not master getting a picture where you could read all three signs, see all three faces, and have those faces looking somewhat pleasant. Here are some (not all, believe it or not) of my attempts.
P.S. Anyone notice how Porter is the most willing to pose for a picture?

We have three advent calendars going on. :) One of them was made by Grandma Jeppson last year. Each day has a little gift for each of the boys to open. I thought it'd be a great idea to take a picture everyday with the boys and what they got since their grandma lives so far away. Well, I've actually only taken a picture for the first day so far but, hey we are only on day 3 and today isn't over yet! The first day Vance and Tanner got these adorable penguin pillowcases and Porter got a cute tag penguin. I wish you could see if a little better because it is a VERY cute penguin. I believe that Aunt Kimberly made the template for it (correct me if I am wrong) Anyway, they are having a lot of fun opening each gift.
