This little girl walked almost to the window, as if she saying, "It's empty. You need to come and fill it."
Well, I didn't fill it, so they went out in the woods to wait...they are worse then the squirrels and rabbits!

Jason had to take some time to pray to the purple gods before the game.
Logan, Sam and Jack built with Jack's new trio blocks...
...and Meredith took pictures like she was the paparazzi! Don't you just love her 70's disco hat!! All she needs is a pair of roller skates and the song. "I Will Survive" and she would be the disco diva!
Our little Miss Meredith turns 8 today! Sam couldn't believe that she had been 7 years old for 364 days!! Happy Birthday, Meredith!!!

The deer or "bucktooth" as Jack refers to them, walked around the house. I took this picture out a different window, which was fogged over, and realized that the deer only had one rack of horns!! On Saturday a doe came to the bird feeder or what Jack would call "A Peach!"

At one point I looked at Jas and said,
A side story:
On Sunday I headed to work. Sam crawled in bed with me that morning and said, "It's ok that you have to work all day today, mom. Jack, dad and I are going to hang out and do some man stuff. It really beats going clothes shopping with you." and off he went....

We finally put some wild bird seed into our bird feeders and honestly, I was a bit disappointed that the birds weren't flocking to the feeders! Well, the other day I looked out and much to my delighted surprise...NATURE!! Even better, a cardinal was at one of the feeders...I love cardinals (especially in the snow.) I told the boys to check out the bird on the feeder and did the teacher thing, "What type of bird is that boys?" And Jack replies, "A Cyclone!" Sam and I looked at each other and then I replied..."Yep, you are right!"

I wrapped the boys' gifts. They always pick out their own Christmas paper and it so does not go with my red and white theme. Also, poor Jack. I put out the presents and it is absolute torture for him. He begged and begged to open one and then quietly took one into the other room to open. I kept telling him I was going to have to hide the gifts so he wouldn't open them. He finally turned to me and said, "I want you to hide these things from me." So off to a hiding place they went!
