The other day Ryder was misbehaving and got hurt because of it. He had climbed on top of the train table which they are told not to do many times a day! He slipped off and hit his chin on the edge which caused his bottom teeth to bite into his top lip. He had a small puncture wound on one side and a lager gash on the other which both bled for a good amount of time. Once the bleeding stopped and he was cleaned up it didn't seem to bother him at all...

Yesterday Zak & I met Tracy & Kyle at Arundel Mills mall. Ryder stayed at home with Ben since he has pneumonia even though you would never know he was sick. We stood in line to see Santa since Kyle had not done this yet and he did great for his picture. Then we had lunch and walked around for a while before heading home. While there Zak picked out our family ornament for 2010.

I also wanted to post pictures of the ornaments the boys got from my om this year...

Today the boys and I did a art project to make penguin door hangers which they enjoyed!

We also made a trip to Target for a few things as well as the grocery store. While at Target I finally bought this calendar for the boys that I have been looking at for months because it was on sale. They loved helping me put all of the magnets on and there are a ton of extra ones for just about every holiday or special occasion.

I feel so behind on things I need to do before Christmas Eve. I have wrapped a few gifts, but have a ton left to do. It is just so cold in the basement at night that I have zero motivation to go down there and wrap anything once the boys go to bed which is the only time I am able to do it! I also need to find time to make 2 no-sew fleece blankets for the boys. It is 2 pieces of fleece that you cut fringe around the edges and then knot them together to make the blanket. It says it generally takes about 1 hour per blanket. I am hoping Ben will help out on those in the evenings!
