Random Mid-Week Pictures

I've taken lots of random pictures this week and thought I'd share what we've been up to.

Carter has been showing signs of being ready for potty training for awhile now. Although, I'm not ready and would rather wait until they are older, we figured we should go ahead and get everything and give it a shot. We got some toilet seats, stools, and pull ups. Neither of them have used the toilet yet, but we're offering it and letting them know they can if they want.

I got Toy Story 3 on Black Friday and heard it was really good and a total tearjerker. So, after the boys went to bed one night, Greg and I watched it. Alone, without the boys, while drinking a beer. Never thought that we'd be watching a cartoon after they went to bed, but we did and it was cute. But, neither of us cried. We have Toy Story 1 and 3, so now we both want to see Toy Story 2.

My mom introduced me to a new brand of candle. I've been using Yankee Candle for awhile now, but they're so expensive, we picked up a couple of these at Kirkland's and a big jar is only $7.99! They smell so good, I've been burning this one since we got back from Georgia.

I put the boys in their Christmas shirts already. I have several that I got for free and I'm excited for them to wear them.

This is a better view of Evan's shirt.

The boys have been obsessed with blanket forts, they always ask for us to set them up for them. Greg is the one who started that and does it with them everytime he plays with them. But, while doing a fort today, I asked the boys if I made one as good as Daddy and they said "yes", so I'm very impressed with myself. ;)

The boys have been waking up a little earlier than we would like and I think it's even a little early for them, look at Carter coloring, he's resting his chin on the table. :(

This is what we did one morning also, so I know they're exhausted, but when they won't go back to sleep, this is what we do. Movies and relaxing.

I started an online bible study. The one that my MOPs group is doing was at a time I couldn't do, and I've really been wanting to do one and then I heard about this girl who does them on her blog. So, I'm excited to do my first bible study.

The boys are so easy to handle in the store when we split up and each take a boy. They tend to be more wild when they're around each other. Evan pushed his little cart and I loaded it up with what we needed.

While Greg and Evan were buying our lottery tickets for tonight, Carter and I headed for the car. He saw this and wanted to sit in it. It was only 50 cents, so I put some money in it to make it go and he did NOT like that. He got down immediately and didn't want to have anything to do with it after that.

I looked in several stores and finally found these. They are an ingredient in the cookies I'm making for a cookie exchange party I'm going to on Sunday and I'm glad I found them. They're much more festive than the regular cream de menth ones.

I got both our trees up and decorated. I have one in the basement and one in the living room. I love having different trees with different color schemes. When I win the lottery tonight, I'm going to buy a huge house and put a tree in every room--all with a different color scheme. ;) I also have a few smaller trees to put up, like two mini ones for the boys room and a small 4 foot one for them to decorate, but I'll probably wait until the weekend to deal with those.
So, that's the random stuff we've been up to this week.
