The Fire Truck Bed

Josh finished up Brant's fire truck bed. He absolutely loves it. He loves to drive it to the fire, get out, and put the fire out. He thinks its the best thing ever. During all this, I have been suffering from the worst case of pink eye EVER. It is goopy, swollen, red, leaky, and down right disgusting. It was in the right eye, got it cleared up, and then it showed up in the left eye, even though i was treating both eyes. So far, Josh and Brant haven't gotten it. I have been called Pink eye monster and Captain Red Eye. its been great. Decided not to take any time off though, trying to infect as many kids as I can!! Plus its exam week-three half days, can't complain. Also, we are supposed to get a major snow storm this weekend. Maybe 10 inches! Crazy! Looks like i will be joining all the other crazy fools at the grocery store tonight to get provisions.

Christmas comes and goes

Seem like just a blur. All the preparation, shopping, and baking and its over so fast. We did Christmas at our house early-Josh was up at 5 am and getting mad because we didn't get up. After opening gifts-everything that has to do with firefighting (fire hat, fire coat, fire hose, fire truck, etc.)-we headed up to WVA for the weekend. Once in WVA, brant actually thought he was a firefighter and was always blowing out the candles.

Our family tradition was for our dad to read us the Night Before Christmas before going to bed so we thought he would try it with the grandkids. Hilarious-they won't sit still for nothing. All we could do was laugh. Once one would get up the other one would get up-check out their matching pajamas. I think my parents think they are twins-this isn't the only matching outfit they got.


apparently my usb connect in my home computer is messed up and since i know soooo little about computers i had to wait until i got back to school to use my laptop to do any blogging. The video is not very good quality. Brant is in the very middle of the front row. He is wearing khaki pants and blue plaid shirt. Listen for him in the first clip. He is the one screaming out the wrong letters in the S-A-N-T-A song.

This clip is kinda long but if you foward to about 2 minutes he will begin his air guitar performance. Josh and I were cracking up the whole time. We had no idea he was such a ham. Several people told us he stole the show. His teachers said he was so surprised because during the practices he would just stand there and not say a word.
