A day in the life of Brody and Warwick

Warwick starts off his day with a nice cozy ride while mommy huffs and puffs her way through her morning run. He has his snacks ready...and, yes, those are hershey kisses for his wholesome morning snack! Warwick LOVES to go for runs. Who wouldn't, though, with a warm and cozy ride like this?

Brody takes a few TV breaks throughout his day...most likely he is watching Tom and Jerry OR Diego. Definitely not Hannah Montana OR ICarly. On commercial breaks he enjoys his 2 favorite passions: dinosaurs and cars. Oh, and I guess a little blanket snuggling/thumb-sucking is required during all breaks. Cute little Warwick is in the background eating a snack.

This picture is not typical of Warwick's daily activities. He is "acting" like such a cute 2 year old. This boy is wild and crazy. He constantly is repeating after me, "No hit" and "Be nice" while sitting in time-out. But, he is so darn cute. Look at his big brown eyes, dimpley smile and shaggy hair. I wish I could freeze him at this age. He is so happy and bouncey.

I had to post this picture because Brody's face is just too funny. We took a self-portrait of ourselves and this is how it turned out.

More thumb sucking...and looking perfectly cute. Thumb sucking does take up a majority of their day. Maybe I should feed them more often?

This picture is for you, Sylvia. This is what our playroom looks like at the end of the day. All credit goes to Brody and Warwick.

This is my favorite part of the day. Look at all three of them snuggled in one big bed. They chose this sleeping set-up and love it. Although they share the bed, they won't share blankets.

Mom, does this remind you of "the 3 little kids"?

White Christmas

Here are photos I promised my mom of our 14 inches of snow the week before school let out for the holidays. I know this may seem normal to some people, but around here we aren't used to this much snow. We aren't prepared for it, so the whole city shuts down. It was a great way to slow things down right before the holidays and spend quality time together. This will definitely be one of my most memorable Christmas'. It was so much fun doing all the fun Christmas traditions with the kids that normally you feel too busy to take the time to do.
Here is our car. We had to get it towed out of the driveway to even get out.

There is our snowman...a few days after he was created. We had one in the front and one in the back...a boy and a girl.

We spent Christmas this year at the Bushnell's house. It took us 8 hours to get there from Portland because of all the snow!! It was worth it, though, because it was really fun. Everyone was there except for Cody and Whitney. Here is our tree that we cut down ourselves from a forest on a family friend's property. It was huge.
Brody and Warwick opening presents on Christmas Eve. Santa even visited the Bushnell house on Christmas Eve. This is a Bullock family tradition and it was so fun to introduce it to the Bushnells. My mom made me a great costume last year and we were able to use it for the first time this year. Santa was a hit. The kids hid while Santa came. Brody was too scared to watch. They were so excited that Santa knew their names!

Christmas morning. This is Warwick and his cousin, Dwight, playing with Warwick's new train set.
Check out that hairdo!

This is New Year's Eve. We ran the First Run in Portland at midnight. It was really fun. Here are Brody and Warwick all bundled up in my double jogging stroller.
Madison and Rivers ran in the kids run. Here they are dancing to the post-race music.
I ran pushing the boys. It wasn't too exciting for Warwick. He fell right asleep. But, Brody was cheering me on the whole time. He loved it.

Jason and Tanner dressed up fancy for the race.
Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
