Dewey is the cutest baby in the whole world. He hates sleeping at night, so he will catnap throughout the day to build up his strength to stay awake all night. I mean, someone has got to keep mom up all night. It's a tough job, but he's very good at it. He was facinated by Christmas. Not so much the presents and stuff, but he loved the wrapping paper and lights. And apparently, some rum pudding so generously fed to him from an unnamed family member. Thanks for that, by the way. Here he is getting ready to throw a tantrum.
I gave him a Christmas ornament, and all was well. He is sitting by himself now, mostly. He has had several crashes that bring me running from the other room, but for the most part, he can do it all by "hims big boy".
Santa wasn't too much of an issue for him. He saw Santa twice this year and both times, he just sorta took it in stride. I guess he figures, "hey, at least someone is holding me, what else could a guy ask for?"
As you can see, Wee One and Bo decorated the tree this year. I was being a scrooge and didn't want to even do Christmas. We left all other decorations in their boxes, but we put up the tree. I think they did a great job. Daddy helped them with the ones on top, but they did most of it themselves. It's nice having kiddos big enough to do stuff like that. They are sweethearts.
This is Wee One's famous, "no one else wears fabric to school" outfit. I made her this outfit (which I think is so adorable on her) and she didn't want to wear it to school because, "Mom, no one else wears fabric to school." I said, "So do they all go naked? Cuz I'm not letting you go to school naked." I won that battle and she ended up wearing it to school where she got several comments on how cute her clothes were.
Halloween this year found us in the Hundred Acre Wood. Wee One dressed like Tigger, Bo was Pooh Bear, and Dewey was Piglet. They looked so cute!! Next year I'll have to come up with another trio of characters for them to dress like.
Wee One had a parade at school while she was dressed as Tigger. And, boy, did she play the part well. She Tigger Hopped around the entire school. Afterwards, she kept saying, "Mom, everyone thought I was so cute. They would say, 'Tigger, come give me five.' They really liked me." No self esteem issues there as you can see.
Wee One had a field trip with her class to a pumpkin patch. I got to tag along ; ) It was very cute to see the kids run from place to place. She seems like she knows just what she's doing whenever she is with other kids. She is quite the silly girl.
Dewey is growing up so fast I can't hardly keep up with him. He is already holding his own bottle and feeding himself biter biscuits. Next he'll be driving and going off to college. It's all down hill from here!! He still loves his mommy very much and snuggles with me most nights. (Fine, every night he sleeps in my bed with me. WHATEVER, get over it.)
Bo turned 4 a few months back. This was his "candy cake" and he loved it. I can't believe he is 4 already. Didn't I just give birth to him, like, yesterday? Yikes!! And look at that beauty next to him. She will be six in February. Six is like, old!! I was just six not too long ago I think.
Anyway, things have been going good. Everyone is happy and healthy and hanging in there. We still talk about Charlie and Chelsie quite often, and it helps heal those wounds that still seem so fresh. I think Dewey actually talks to them, once in awhile too, but he won't tell us what they said. Life is funny sometimes. I would give anything to hold my babies even for just one more minute, but at the same time, I wouldn't want to lose what I have learned because of them. To say I am a different person is putting it very lightly. I am excited and nervous to see what Heavenly Father has in store for my family. Whatever it is, we'll be ready......or at least, He'll make us ready and we'll be willing.

Wee One and Bo love Dewey so much!! They are very good with him and love to help Mommy with little things like bottle feedings, diaper changes, and baths. It is so fun to see them all play together. Wee One and Bo get so excited everytime Dewey smiles at them.
We had a ward campout this weekend, and we did some pioneer activities. Here they are doing a three legged race and the stick pull. Wee One also did a potato sack race, but Bo ididn't want anything to do with it. Daddy did all of the cooking for the whole ward, and it turned out awesome. He is a great cook. I'm lucky to have a husband who finds pride in taking care of me so well. I don't even have to cook dinner--he does it.
