Sorry we haven't been blogging much lately. We are enjoying the holidays, going to see light displays, drinking hot cocoa, and reading new winter books that we just bought (and one that was given, thanks Bonnie!). And I'm sneaking in crocheting in any free time I have. We are keeping very busy and aren't taking out the camera much. I did snap some photos of the boys a few days ago though. We've noticed that Ian wants to play more with Sawyer now that Sawyer's crawling around everywhere. Ian will yell to him from a different room..."c'mere Sawyer!"...and look to see if he's coming. He's sharing toys more and will even give him a car and tell him to start driving. This is really, really getting fun.

This is about 99% of the photos I get of Ian: blurry and driving fast.

Sawyer is now a pro at crawling and can move very fast. And in the last couple of weeks he's started to pull himself up on his knees. But I was shocked when he crawled into the kitchen and opened one of the drawers and started pulling everything out. I can't believe it's starting already!

The color on this picture was weird but it was so cute of him that I had to include it.
And already the big brother, Ian is cleaning up Sawyer's mess.

We will be baking and decorating cookies this week, wrapping presents, and seeing more light displays. We are really looking forward to Christmas next week with the boys.

Thanks for sharing the pictures of the most handsome duo west of the Mississippi.

Emi largely ignored Misaki until she could sit up, too. All of a sudden it was like Emi realized that Misaki was an actual person and not a "something" that was sucking up all our extra time. I was pleasantly surprised when they started playing together.

Very cute pictures!

Hey Andrea, I love the pictures of the boys. So, what were those first couple of weeks like w/ Ian and the new baby? Samuel hasn't been himself, and I'm hoping it will pass. It makes me sad...Landon has been doing so many fun things w/ him, but maybe he just misses his Mommy. Maybe this week will be better. We, too, are really looking forward to Christmas w/ Samuel this year. I hope you guys have a great Christmas, and we'll definitely get together soon. --Karli
