let it snow!!!

I AM SO EXCITED!!! 
:):):)
.....
every night i walk into max and brennan's room and find them, 
in some fashion, 
peeking out of the window.
for the first week i scolded them b/c i didn't want them to rip the curtains out of the wall.
{brennan has already done this once on his side.}
they told me they just wanted to look at the blinking lights.
in a rush i told them they could see our lights from the top of the stairs.
the second week, after i put them to bed, 
i was walking down the stairs 
and 
saw 
them.
in all of the blinking glory!
down  the end of the street and across the way.
a house with blinking snowflake lights,
and sign that flashes "merry christmas."
i turned around and ran back into the kids room,
"are you talking about the blinking snowflake lights?!!"
and then brennan was all,
"YES!!!! and the merry christmas sign mom!"
and from then on, 
i made sure to remind them to peek every night 
out of the curtains to look at the blinking snowflake lights, 
and the sign that flashes "merry christmas."
 ....
in other news...
chase got up on his hands and knees today and spun around in circles like a dog CHASing his tail.
and then i helped him stand up holding the seat at the end of my bed.
i let go and he was just standing there ALL BY HIMSELF.
who does he think he is growing up??!!
waaaaahhhhhh!!!!!
"LET IT SNOW! LET IT SNOW! LET IT
SNOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!"

That picture of the kids at the window is priceless. And so is your little Chase.

Merry Christmas, Em!
