Ribs and Bass Pro...

Last night my parents took us out to eat at a BBQ place. Before we went Andrew kept asking if they had ribs. He was so excited to eat some ribs so Zach really had no choice but to get ribs. He is his fathers son for sure! This is him going to town on his ribs!

So good!
We also maked a stop at Bass Pro Shop! The boys loved looking at all the fish and stuffed Animals! They also had holiday games for kids to play. It was a fun night out with the grandparents!
Yes, He was not suppose to be up there....typical Andrew. :)

Hamster troubles...Part 2

I am having a love/hate relationship with this hamster. The boys love it and ask to hold it or play with it at least 3 to 4 times a day. So, for their sake I love that it makes them so happy and that they have gotten a pet even though it is not a puppy, like they wanted. :)
My hate relationship comes from a few instances that have happened in the last few weeks. One morning I got out of bed and walked out of my room and out of the corner of my eye I see something scurry along the wall. The boys had left the cage open after "hugging and kissing" the hamster good night the night before. It luckily had gotten out in the morning instead of the middle of the night. That has been his first and hopefully last escape.
A few mornings later the boys were playing in the room that the hamster is in and I hear "oh no....MOM!" The boys had made the cage fall over (with the hamster in it) and everything was all over the, poop, hamster! it was a mess. I guess it got me to clean the cage, but it was a big mess! Then just yesterday the boys were having trouble getting the hamster out and they ended up spilling all the food over the bottom of the cage in the shavings. I ended up leaving it but was frustrated that it happened right after I cleaned the cage.
Oh the joys of having a pet! The hamster is more work then I thought it would be for sure! I can't imagine how much more of a mess a puppy would have been!

Shower number 1...

We have so many wedding this year! Luke and Missy will be the first in January! We had the first shower this Saturday. It was a good time! I haven't seen "the sisters" all together for a while so it was nice to spend some time with them! These aren't the best quality, my camera was acting up. They show the good time we had though!

Bride-to-be. Love her, she is the sweetest!
Sisters, Anna and Jill, and MIL with niece Inga. We played a game where Missy had to answer questions that Luke had answered. If she got them wrong she had to put a piece of gum in her mouth. We had to guess with the paperplates weather she would answer right or wrong. She did pretty good. She got 9 wrong out of 21. Go Missy!

9 pieces of gum.:)

We also played the toilet paper wedding dress game with the mother and mother-in-law as the "brides". This was the winning team.

Mother and daughter.

She will be a beautiful bride!!!

Christmas Decorations

The Christmas Tree went downstairs this year since we have moved some things around. The boys were so excited to get all the Christmas stuff out this year!

We don't have a Christmas trian but the Thomas trains did the job!

Zach and the boys( mostly Zach...he got it done so much faster after they went to bed) got new legos this year. We made a winter village with them. They get messed up everynow and then but they boys enjoy playing with them.
