Big Boy Haircuts

All of the boys got their haircut last weekend, including Jude for the first time. Noah volunteered to go first and even let them use the clippers- it was truly a momentous occasion!

Here is Jude showing off his haircut and his play skills at the park. He now goes up the stairs and down the slide all by himself!

But he still likes to swing more than anything else!

Christmas Vacation

Since Dad took the week off, we decided to take an impromptu family vacation. We headed up to The King and Prince on St Simons Island for a few days of fun.

We made it to the top of the lighthouse.

We also visited Fort Frederica.

We had such a good time and can't wait to go again. Noah keeps asking when we can go back to the hotel. Maybe it will become our new family tradition? I think we would all like that!

Christmas 2008

We were lucky enough to spend Christmas with Sarah, Heidi and baby Bodie this year. They got into town on Christmas Eve and went to the children's service at church with us. The kids were all supposed to dress up as their favorite nativity story character. Jude dressed up as a cow and Noah would only agree to being Tigger- maybe there was a tiger there?

After church we came home and Daddy John, Noushin and Alex came over to visit. We baked cookies for Santa and Uncle Alex helped Noah track Santa on the computer.

Grandma and Papa gave Noah and Jude new pajamas and then it was off to bed. After opening presents in the morning, we spent the day relaxing at home and had dinner with Sarah, Heidi and Bodie. It was a great holiday!

Noah and Jude loved spending time with their cousin Bodie and can't wait until the next time they see him!
