1. They crawl on the floor. I'm a human. I walk on my legs.
2. I'm not hee-hawing. (Alex says 'you say it' and Nick says 'I don't want to say hee-haw)
3. Donkeys don't broom (Nick is trying to sweep the floor and doing a horrible job).
4. I don't live in a barn. I am Mommy's son and will always be Mommy's son. I cannot live in a barn.
And so the argument goes on and on... Until I say that's enough!

Ryan enjoyed being at his parents house for Christmas Eve and eating steak.

We did our Christmas celebration with Ryan's family today. We went to Grandma and Grandpa Pruett's house and celebrated with Uncle Nathan and Aunt Charlene. Nick pretty much slept the entire day but he did wake up long enough to open presents and felt pretty good while we were doing that. Alex had a great time!
We ate a steak dinner that Ryan's mom had cooked. And then opened presents for most of the rest of the afternoon. Everything was great but Grandpa and Alex really enjoyed the musical instrument he bought for everyone (grandpa- that is). You'll see it in the pictures and hopefully a video.
I'm so excited about Christmas morning but praying Nick feels much better in the morning.
We have the Jeep loaded with presents and cookies to go to Farmington. The boys are super excited, but Alex is confused why he can't open the presents under the tree today. He'll find out what it is all about tomorrow!

Nick has decided he wants to be a nurse when he grows up. I told him that is a great idea. Our friend Tony is a nurse and he gets to do lots of gross things :) Nick mainly just wants to give people shots. We will see...

I'm looking forward to posting pictures of the boys opening all their toys on Christmas!
While I'm waiting for the video to upload:
We seemed to be obsessed with hot lava at our house. Everything must be compared to hot lava. Are these noodles as hot as hot lava? (not- are these noodles as hot as lava?) We have lots of discussions about hot lava. Mommy, would you swim in hot lava? Why wouldn't you want to get in hot lava? Would it hurt? So on and so forth.
Nick and Alex have also hit the little boy stage where they just say stupid things over and over to each other and they both think it is hilarious. My cousin Jenni warned me about this stage, and it did drive me a little nuts when they just kept saying 'sleeping beauty' all through dinner. At the same time, I am just so happy that they get along so well and truly are becoming best friends.

Grandpa reading with the boys at his house.
August? We went to the zoo with Grandpa and Grandma Bradley and Aunt Jackie and Logan. All three boys rode the carousel.
We have been home for six months with Alex. It is hard to believe. His English is amazing, and he is happy and a joy to have in our home everyday. Nick is the greatest big brother. They both say and do hilarious things everyday, and I've got to start writing it all down. Nick has made it through almost a half a year of kindergarten. It is hard to believe he has been home for two and a half years now!
