Great Language Skills????

So we are always encouraging Gabriel to use words and make sentences...but this morning...HE CRACKED ME UP!
Here is how the conversation went;
Me: "Gabriel get back in your bed"
Me: "What?"
Gabriel: "BLAH...BLAH...I DON'T HEAR YOU!"
Me: "Great Sentence HEAR this...GOOO.... BAAAACK ....TOOO... BED!"
(Mental note; Ask Ms. Carol..who uses this phrase? Where does he come up with this)

John Jr. & Spencer's Christmas Band Concert

Toano Middle School's 6th Grade Band (Spencer is in this group)
Sorry the pictures are so bad...we sat far away and I need a new camera!
Toano Middle School's 7th Grade band ( Junior is apart of this)

Here are our little Rock Stars!
They did a great job last night at their Christmas Concert!
Gabriel really enjoyed it...he would wave his hand in the air..just like the band director
who was giving direction to the band members! Then they were walking up and Gabe yells...
"Spence YOU ROCK!"
I just love these kids!


Just a really cute picture!
(It's funny though..this was last night at the boy's Christmas Concert. Nathaniel looked over at me after we were there only 10 minutes and says "How long with this thing be?" I said "not too long" and then he replied " Less then an hour?" and I said "I think so why?" and Nathaniel says " Cause I am watching an item on ebay and it ends in 1 hour!" Hahahahahha)

Christmas Towne Date Night

John surprised me and took me on a date night to Busch Gardens Friday night for my birthday. He knew how much I would love all the Christmas lights and scenery. It was very pretty (sorry the pictures don't show just how pretty it was) It was super cold that night 25 degrees but it just made it that much more we walked along in the Wintery Wonderland sipping our hot cocoa!
Thanks Honey!

(Don't worry Mom, I checked to make sure the things in his bags were all acceptable things to give to his love on Christmas Morning!)

Family Fun Night for Autism Awareness

Last night we had lots of fun raising money and awareness for Autism! (Nathaniel doesn't appear to be having too much fun...but trust me he loves these fun nights!) Tiffany got this really cool character drawer and his girlfriend (who does amazing face painting!) to come to the restaurant and do the faces and pictures of those who came in to eat dinner! It was pouring rain so not lots of business this event...but my family and the restaurant staff...HAD SO MUCH FUN!!!!
A special THANK YOU to Friendly's Restaurant for several very successful fundraising family fun nights!
Thank you to Troy and Angel for sharing your amazing talents with us and Helping Raise Awareness for Autism! We look forward to doing this again!
