Sleeping Beauties

January 25, 2010

Benny wasn’t feeling to hot this weekend so when he woke up on Sunday we gave him a bath, put him in clean jammies, and made him comfy on the couch with a quilt and pillows to watch his recent obsessions… CARS and Toy Story 2.

Before we knew it, he was asleep again. Mike snapped this picture of Benny and Maxie sleeping together on the couch. TOO FUNNY! This is why I’m glad we have a point & shoot again because this is one of the moments we would have missed lugging out the big camera.

The little dude is starting to feel better. I still can’t believe he’ll be 2 in a week. TWO! My baby isn’t so much of a baby anymore. =(

  1. Happy new year a little late. This year the Thomas family decided that we are GOING GREEN for 2010. We realize that not enough people do their part to help our earth and environment and we want to instill in our boys to be respectful to mother nature. To help save our planet and natural resources for their future, we’re going to start stepping up to the plate. Look for lots of tips to come. I have A LOT of them.
  2. It’s been a slight mad house around here lately. The boys always get testy around this time of year, especially Owen, because they are cooped up inside all the time. They have no way to release all their energy. Needless to say behavior has been less than stellar. Owen’s getting a behavior/responsibility chart this week. Hope it helps.
  3. Mike and I are doing the “Biggest Loser” at work. It ends March 25th. We’ll keep you posted.
  4. Our baby girl turned 6 yesterday! Maxie girl… our furry sweet heart. She got a nice treat for her special day too. Daddy grilled her a steak.
  5. I’m still in disbelief that in a few weeks I’ll be the mom to a 2 and 4 year old. WOW. Really? Already?
  6. We have 3 new favorite DVD’s in our house. CARS (again… Owen was into it at 2yrs old and now Benny is as well) and Toy Story 1 & 2. Between those movies and the Thomas the Train DVD’s I constantly feel like I’m living in either the Island of Sodor, Radiator Springs, or Andy’s Room. They’re playing non-stop. It’s cute to hear Benny say the characters names though.

  7. Back around Thanksgiving we moved the boys both into Benny’s room and turned Owen’s room into the playroom. What a great idea. It’s nice that all the toys have a home now and are neatly put away. It’s been wonderful and the boys love having a playroom. They are actually doing well sharing a room. It’s sweet b/c if I happen to put Benny to bed before Owen he says, “Owen comin’?” “Owen comin’?”. He likes having O with him. Here are some pictures of the new set up. I have a few more things to add/tweak to each room, but I’m happy with how it turned out, epsecially since they are such small rooms.

    Notice the bulletin board with their art work from school… the one in the upper left is Owen trying to write his name. So neat!

  8. Owen is doing so well in preschool they moved him to the next room a little early. They were amazed at his reading ability and his letter recognition. Go Owen… our little smarty pants!
  9. I finally decided on a point and shoot camera. I got the Canon SD780. It’s not too bad. I took the pictures above of the boys rooms with it.
  10. And because it’s too cute not to share, here is a video of Owen singing for me the other week.
