Gingerbread House

Putting together a gingerbread house has become one of our favorite Christmas traditions. Sam thought we should eat all the candy instead of putting it on the house, and the boys wanted to arrange all the pieces this year which made it a little difficult, but we still had fun. I just love everything about Christmas!

Sam Cont.

I almost forgot to add that Sam also did some light cleaning around the house today with a pack of napkins that he dipped in toilet water. What a great helper!

Sam the Trouble Maker

I have heard of kids like this before, the kind who are into everything, making messes and causing trouble at every turn. I've just never had one of them before-then Sam came along! I knew it was too good to be true that I was actually folding laundry in peace without Sam hanging on me to be held or jumping in my pile of nicely folded clothes. As soon as I finished the load I went looking for him, and I found him lathering himself up with a tube of toothpaste. After I got the toothpaste cleaned off of him and the bathroom, I told him to go put his shoes on so we could go grocery shopping. I only had a few last minute things to grab and by the time I got downstairs he was in the garage behind the car playing with a pack of matches. Now before anyone calls CPS on me he doesn't know how to light the matches, and I did get them away from him before any harm was done. Matches better go on my list of things to put where Sam can't get them! He's trouble all right, good thing he's so cute! One more quick note, notice he is shirtless in the toothpaste pictures? That would be because he dumped his antibiotic down the front of his shirt right before the toothpaste incident. Oh joy!
