    video

    I thought that you would all love to see the blackmail material we captured on Cole today! I was humming a silly song, and Cole started breaking it down, so we decided to capture it for posterity sake, and I think it speaks for itself!

    We had a good Christmas, despite the fact both boys were sick. We thankfully didn't have to spend this Christmas in the hospital (though when Cole started running a fever, we thought we might) and we were blessed to have Gary here to celebrate it with us. Both boys got plenty of toys and goodies, let me tell you. I'm thinking we'll need to do a toy purge after all of this. Cole got a bike, and Logan got a tricycle and the fact that it was 60F on Christmas day made it all the better for bike riding.

    I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the latest member of our family, Charlie the Panda. Cole recently gave up Pacy and Hair so we made a big deal about going to pick out a stuffed animal to replace them and took him to the Build-A-Bear Workshop where Charlie was born.

    Now, before you ooo and aaaah over Charlie, take a moment and consider the plight of the Panda. Poor Charlie has been thrown up on 4 times already, has been dropped in the mud once and has been washed so many times that the fur covering his nose is almost completely gone. I assure you, if most Pandas are treated as roughly as Charlie is, I can understand why they are endangered.

    Despite all of that, however, Charlie is well loved and has become a permanent attachment to our retinue.

    I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas (or a wonderful Christmahanakwanza, as the case may be) and that you all have a happy New Year!

    I love that Hair is capitalized (as it should be!) Good idea with the Panda--sorry he had a rough start, but hey, what does he expect? Living with kids and all...

    Yes, Hair should be capitalized! Hair was an intrinsic part of our family for over a year, Hair deserves a proper name.

    True to 3 year old form, Cole is now referring to his panda as Panda (note the capital). I think it's hilarious how toddlers name things. They're just named what they are.

    Mike, You have taught him well. Those are soooooome moves. He and Jacob would fair very well together on "So Do You Think You Can Dance?!".

    Nice Moves Cole. I'm thinking M iketaught him those moves, since I've seen Dalynn dance.

    LeAnn, are you implying that Cole's moves are less than stellar? I personally think that his one hand to the floor and one hand in the air move is the bomb. I know that I could never do something like that!
