Tooth fairy

Well, the tooth came out tonight, New Years Eve. Aidan was a little frightened at first, but we hyped it up and he was ok. Now, he is a proud 4 year old! I never thought I would have to explain the tooth fairy yet, but now the tooth fairy is looking around the house for some cash!

Zachary jammin'

Zachary's video of dancing to the 80's Hummer! Awesome!

Aidan's reaction to what Santa brought

video

All Aidan wanted for Christmas this year was Team Geo Trax. He was very focused on this mission. Well, Santa delivered. We knew it would be a hit and we did not want to miss it. We covered it up with bed sheets until I could catch it on camera. It was priceless. I will never forget the joy of Christmas this year with these two boys!

Springfield Christmas

Our prom pose!
Needed a bike helmet to be a good example (you know, Safety First in the Van Lear house!)







Our family Christmas

Santa has arrived!
Aidan (in his Buzz Lightyear Christmas pjs) seeing his Team Geo Trax that Santa brought him. This is literally all he asked for from Santa. At least he was consistent with it!

We woke up to a white Christmas in NW Arkansas!

Zachary (in his "Dad's sidekick" pjs) with his new Hummer that, I kid you not, sings and dances to MC Hammer...video to follow soon!





I made the boys blankets this year. I was very proud (because of my determination to learn to sew) and super duper glad that they liked them!






Waiting on Christmas...




Baking Santa's cookies

We spent the afternoon on Christmas Eve making chocolate chip cookies for Santa. We were sure that is what he likes! That night we went to a neat family oriented Christmas Eve service at Fellowship. The kids loved it!
Look at that irresistible face!

Cheese! He loves wearing an apron like everyone else!

Love. those. boys!

Zachary has been putting random things in Domino's stocking all season. Today, it was a wooden spoon!
Blowing kisses to me!

First time getting to use the mixer! The cookies turned out great! Santa liked them, too!

Neosho Christmas

We went to Neosho, Missouri to celebrate Christmas and Keith's 40th birthday with the
Van Lears. We had such a good time! Even Aidan, who was not feeling well, was able to play and laugh with the other kids!

Aidan got a Cars sleeping bag, flashlight, and compass. He was THRILLED about the compass! Funny kid!


The candles ALMOST burned the house down...40 is a lot of candles!



Zachary was copying another kid that was doing the splits. This was as far as he got but you would have thought he was doing flips-he was so proud of himself!


They have a full length mirror in the hall that is pure entertainment for the kids!

Christmas card photos

Aidan would not take his blue goggles off for these photos! These won't work...
We needed to fix this cranky bear before getting nice pleasant family photos...

Goofy kids!

Pretty cute Van Lears!

Ahh, we will use that one!
