Sit back, relax & welcome to the Harrison world
Welcome to the daily happenings of the Harrison Family. It's crazy here, but we have a lot of fun. Mamma is clearly a little out numbered by the male species in the house, but it sure keeps things interesting. In our lives, you'll find lots of bugs, blocks, trucks, loud banging, clanging, running, hurdling off couches and beds, endless amounts of energy, no sleep, laughter from the belly, boo-boos, trips to the dr, walks to the park, did i mention no sleep? We hope you enjoy the ride as much as we do.
My little monkey with a sad face. I had just taken away his 'reindeer food' because i feared it would end up all over my back seat instead of our backyard, where it's suppose to go in a couple of days. Life is rough.. poor little guy!
Me and my good friend, Amy! Love her, we've known each other a good long while. I actually met her mother first in a Dr's office I was 'calling on' for work about 10 years ago... we talked about my job because she thought her daughter would be great at it and next thing I knew, Amy was working with me at the same company. Amy was a great sales rep, by the way.... but now we both are lucky enough to be stay at home mom's for our boys, the greatest and most important job ever.
Brady and Breck all ready to crash a Christmas party. Notice: they had to put on their fancy rain boots.
Nothing like a Creepy Frosty and Creepy Santa hanging around the house. 'Lawd', you know i loves a mask!
Brady has had soooooo much fun with our elf on a shelf, doodlebug! The very first thing he does when he wakes is scout the house for our elf and he thinks it's hilarious when he finds him somewhere new each time! Next year i foresee some serious competition with elf spotting... but until then, Brady searches without the stress of competition.
Just a wee little boo boo. He just scraped his chin on a chair, all is good, but had to take a picture!
I just sort of thought this was cute! I often find Breck in with the Christmas Tree just checking it out and looking at the ornaments he made and hung.
Brady and Breck spent a little time yesterday afternoon decorating some gingerbread men by dipping them in chocolate and throwing on lots of sprinkles. Good job boys... cute and tasty!
Here are the boys celebrating Christmas a little early in Houston at their Grandparents house. The were rather fascinated with the train under the Christmas tree and played it on repeat until our ear drums rang joyful songs on their own. The boys entered their Grandparents house a little quiet and cautious but soon let a little bit of their true personalities shine through with the hurling of balls and chasing each other with a bit of screaming on the side. The boys enjoyed themselves and spending time with their Grandparents, aunt, uncle, great Grandmother and great aunt. The presents were a hit too.
How festivus is this? A lot of icing, a heck of a lot of candy and 4 little boys ready to get dirty and silly from candy consumption and house decorating. I love how you can see each of their personalities through their houses! Breck's was over the top with candy, Brady's was heavy on the landscaping, David's well thought out and Aaron's was decorated to the bitter end daring anyone else to compete with his exquisite design.
We decorated until we could decorate no more... We started out with the sun in the sky and ended when our lids were heavy from sugar comas.
Not sure who's more proud of their work, Brian or the boys! Don't let him fool you, that lovely house Brian is holding was decorated by his oldest son!
Brady went wild on the gingerbread house landscaping.... I guess we've actually taught him a thing or two!
My little helpers! They LOVED loading our cart up with poinsettias. Can't wait to see this translate into yard work!
For some reason Brady thinks a group hug involves a choke hold. Breck must be developing some hardcore neck muscles these days.
Well.... it definitely feels like winter and rather appropriate weather to buy a Christmas tree. The boys were real excited and I can tell just love everything about the Christmas Season. They make me smile... a lot.
The boys and I enjoyed having some friends over for play and lunch. I love thinking about being back in 7th grade with these girls having no idea at the time that we'd be hanging out 21+ years later with our kids. Awesome'ness'!
After a hearty breakfast of granola bar (yes, i'm being sarcastic on that one), Brady and Breck could not wait to watch the snow fall. They insisted on sitting with the front door open to see all the excitement fall from the sky. I'm going to call the snow magic pixie dust because it put the boys in the happiest mood! Notice the boys sitting in their chairs holding hands. Too cute.
aaahhhhh... i just noticed a strand of lights out. this isn't this best picture... it looks better than this! Brady and Breck love to look out our windows at the trees.... it's magical to them!
Lights, cords, plugs.... that's really all a boy needs. These strands of lights and electricity make them bonkers.... but in a good way. It's so much fun to see their excitement.
The boys had a good time outside while Brian hung the Christmas lights. They are sooo excited this year for Christmas!
