To all of my friends that think I have fallen off of the face of the planet, I assure you I have not. Life is crazy around here (as usual). Tomorrow at 7 am, Sophie goes for surgery to have tubes put in and bloodwork drawn to test her immune system. She is a little girl, everywhere I go people say, "Is she really almost one?" YES YES YES! She is growing so much lately, and talking up a storm, she will repeat almost anything we say- here she is saying "jump jumpy jumpy" after Sullivan was jumping on the bed. I swear, she is getting so big! We are hoping once the tubes drain the fluid that she will be able to walk again.
And Sullivan, what is he up to? He had a dance performance at an alzheimers retirement center this past weekend. He did his ballet routine great, then for tap, he did a solo dance. It was the cutest thing ever! I know I am prejudice, but man, he had all the ladies there after him! It was wonderful- he stood up there in front of all of those people, smiling away, and did his dance great! He is getting really good at tap. Its getting pretty amazing. He had his school performance this week, so I thought I would share a video of him singing.
Sullivan at tap:
Sullivan and Sophie in robes they got for Christmas. Sullivan thinks it makes him a superhero!
Sullivan and Mrs. Weber, his pre-k teacher. He is in love with her! She made him the necklace he is wearing for Christmas.

Trinity and Brooke painting ornaments. Brooke took it VERY seriously, and came out with some beautiful RED work. Trinity even managed to paint a star!
Sophie's best bud checking out her toys and showing her how its done!
Sullivan and Uncle Charlie decorating ornaments (Charlie's was of course the best!)
I can wear a Santa hat if I want at my party! Now, let me keep stealing these kids' food!
What? you don't put toys in your mouth so you can crawl?
Sullivan's future wife (Lauren), and Sophie's future husband (Thomas).

In other news, can you believe Christmas is less than two weeks away? I can not!!! I really can not believe that my baby is going to be one in just more than a week! We are having her first bithday party on Saturday, and I can't wait. I got her some super cute little pink tights with flowers all over them, and her first mini skirt, and a cute birthday shirt. Ugggh she is gonna look so big!!! I have finished all of my holiday shopping, and have everything wrapped! I can not believe it. I am on top of it this year. Its so fun though, because Sullivan REALLY gets it this year. We are having a blast every night looking at lights and just talking about Christmas with him. I set up the Christmas village on his eye level last night, and turned on all of the lights, "Its just gorgeous mom! I can't wait to see my friend's faces when they see this!" We read Christmas books every night, he just loves it! Tonight is Aaron's work Christmas party, so that should be fun.
And the best, Sullivan is learning about "Mrs. O" this week. Apparently, she is optimistic- try explaining that word to a four year old. Or better yet, try getting them to pronounce it right!
A little funny story to make you remember why you don't have ten kids. Last week, I told Sullivan to get his shoes on so we could go play with Thomas and Lauren. He has spent the night before at their house- Aaron and I had a fancy, schmancy date night. Anyway, He says "Damn it, I can't find them."
I said, "Sullivan, you can't say that, its a bad word!"
"Sullivan, that's a bad word too!!! You can't say that either!"
"Well, what can I say?"
"You can say darnit I guess, but you can't say those other bad words."
"If you think those are bad words, you should hear what Miss Tiffini said last night!"
"What did she say?" (fearing he has learned the "f" word)
"She said stupid, and I told her the police were gonna take her to jail if she talks like that!"

So, apparently he does learn something good in school! Here is a conversation we had in the car this morning on the way to a birthday party:
Sullivan: "Mom, Christmas is a magical time."
Me: "Yep, sure is. What is so magical about it?"
Sullivan: "You know, reindeer flying, Jesus flying, stuff like that."
Me: "Jesus flying? Where does he fly?"
Sullivan:" You know mom!"
Me: "No, are you talking about after he died when he rose into heaven?"
Sullivan: "Not flowers mom (I am assuming from the rose), I am talking about he flied into my heart and lives there. He lives there forever now that he flied there- right into my heart."
Me: "That is magical Sullivan. Isn't it wonderful that Jesus can live in your heart and be with you all of the time? I am so glad he lives in my heart too."
Sullivan: "He can only live in one of our hearts, and he picked mine. He doesn't know how to fly into yours mom."
Me: "Ok, well, are we gonna have a birthday party for Jesus on Christmas day since its His birthday?"
Sullivan: "I like that plan mom, we can make a cake!"
Me: "Mmm a cake, that sounds great."
Sullivan: "But since he is in my heart, I will probably have to eat his cake and open his presents."
Me: "I am sure he won't mind."
