Christian: "Hey mom...did you know we breathe tree's throwup?"
Me: "What did you say?"
Christian:...repeats what he said and explains further," ya...we breathe in oxygen which is what trees throw up after they're done."
(now that's science I understand!!)

This little man has been an eye opening experience for me and Gavin. We love his little personality so much...and love how he makes us appreciate the distinct differences in each of our little men. Shane had quite the year of a three year old...he gave us a run for our money more often than not. BUT the good news is...it seems he is starting to turn a corner. His momentous markers include him giving up his finger sucking and pit-loving. In the last few weeks we have been working on having dry pull-ups at night....I am surprised what Shane can do with a little incentive and when he decides he WANTS to do it. He made a new years resolution to "peetect" his baby brother instead of using him as an experiment for naughtiness. Shane is healthy as a horse...he rarely gets sick. Shane emulates his older brother and daddy...he wants to copy them and be with them..sometimes to their detriment. He can't wait to "be 20 and go on a mission and come home and get married in the pretty white temple mommy and daddy got married in"...and on most days I think of that country song "Don't blink"...my little boys are going to be men soon enough and I will wish them back to 4=)We love our squishy!

And now that Christmas is over and presents have been seen....here are some of the after shots of the Grandkids Photoshoot we did for GAmmy & Papa's gift...Here's my fav pic of the bunch that we took...which, I might add, was no easy feat with 10 grandkids...2 three year olds and a newborn=)
And no Christmas is complete without a trip to the temple to check out the lights and nativity:And I didn't get any pictures...but we did tag along on the annual Packard Carolling tradition...which always proves to be heart warming in some little way. I love that it brings joy to others with nothing but our voices. Speaking of tagging along, we also jumped in the my SILs friend tradition of driving thru PQ where there are about 10 streets that do the Christmas lights up right...it was awesome...very crowded...but we jumped in the back of Gav's truck and we had a great time.
