Happy Birthday Joe

Today is Joey's 6th Birthday!  
Our boy is still spunky, a little character, never wants to sit still, loves chocolate, still hates clothes, loves his siblings & still loves his daddy more than anything. As can be seen in the following photos Joey & his siblings are definitely a little crazy together. We love you Joey. Can't wait to see what this year brings us in your world.



Oh Christmas Tree

We have been so busy this year that we just recently put the tree up. Rick put the tree with lights up & then we let the kids (with daddy's help to reach the higher parts) decorate the tree.  
They all had so much fun. Johnnie is a pro at this point & picks out the perfect spot to place the ornaments.
 Joey wants to place all his homemade ornaments up high to avoid Holly's little fingers. Jimmy is still a little perfectionist & spends a lot of time trying to decide where to place his ornaments. Holly just enjoyed removing the ornaments & putting them back but she was smiling the whole time so that was okay. Once the tree was decorated I took a photo of it with our decorated mantle. And then I wanted a closeup of the tree but quick children bumping into mommy tends to create a blur (a pretty one, but still a blur).  
And last but not least I was able to capture what is now my favorite Christmas photo of my children. A peaceful moment of them admiring their handiwork. We're ready for Santa's visit now. Are you?
