passing down traditions

today allie and i enjoyed decorating christmas cookies together. this was something that i did every year with my family and i just couldn't wait to pass this tradition on to her. she iced... and sprinkled... and licked.... and ate.... and giggled the whole time! here is a picture of her decorating and a pic of her creations too!

birthday party

we celebrated caleb's first birthday this weekend (a week early)... it was wonderful. caleb was in awe the whole time - truly excited that the whole day was about him. here is a quick pick of that cute face just after devouring his baseball cupcake!

loads of giggles

although allie gives us plenty of reasons to worry... we get lots of moments to laugh too! check out our latest funny moments! this was her entertainment while i got ready this morning!

**i realize that i haven't had many pics of caleb... i'm working on it, but w/ his new found walking trick and not feeling well it has been difficult!

a day of rest?

well, this sunday can not qualify as a day of rest (although i am currently the only awake in the house).

caleb is feeling better today. he has no fever and is eating really well. i think that being sick has set him back w/ his walking. for those that didn't know - caleb began walking on wednesday. however, today he is really shaky. we're hoping that by tomorrow he'll have his full strength back.

the real fun of this restless day came in the form of his big sister allie and all before 9am. while i was cleaning up breakfast, allie (who can now open any and all doors in our house) went into the bathroom and ate almost 1/4 of her toothpaste. while i was calling poison control and daddy was dealing w/ caleb, she pushed a stool up to the counter and got out a steak knife. upon grabbing the knife, she went into her typical squeal and tantrum. After calming down, we all went into the play room to play together. at some point caleb had an explosive diaper that lance and i were trying to conquer together. we soon realized that allie was gone and it was far too quiet. she had pushed the stool back to the counter and was licking the medicine bottle that i left out and open in the kitchen.

needless to say she was disciplined. oh my.... we have reached a whole new level of trouble. please pray for lance and i as we reexamine the safety of our home and learn to train allie the difference b/t safe and dangerous.

man, i'm tired... and we are only two years in??? hee,hee... thank you Lord for the energy for everyday. He never gives us more than we can handle.

a sad day at the siscos

caleb woke with 101 fever today. we haven't seen him this pale and lifeless in almost a year. it brought tears to my eyes while my mind flooded with memories of his first few weeks.

we got him to the doc this morning... dr. barrett's comment was, "boy, you are always into trouble in december." HA!! We found that he has a really bad ear infection and are now armed with some good antibiotics.

He's currently snuggled tight in his daddy's arms.... although we are sad that he is sick, it is nice to just hold him close. being sick seems to make our active kids
come to a complete stop.
