the lighting in this picture gives him an almost angelic look.
Or, maybe I am just biased
As is life with a dad and his sons, there was a lot of snowball throwing going on.
ACT(Ava Claire T.) and her mommy(my big sis) came to play in the snow. I wish Teagan could've joined too. Soon enough, right aunt Jenny!
Snow angels are something the boys have been talking about for quite a while now. We are members of Dolly Pardon's imagination library which I highly recommend everyone with children ages 0-5 sign up for. You (or someone you know) have to have a Jefferson County address, and you get a different free book every month until they turn 5. It's sponsored by The Junior League of Alabama. It's great. Anyway, they have a book called The Snowy Day where a little boy plays in the snow and makes snow angels, so they finally got their big chance!
I love to see the world through their eyes
Mikey's the biggest kid of all. And I was the innocent victim in all of their snowball attacks.
Of course, I had to get Charlie Bucket out in the snow, but just for a few minutes. He didn't seemed to mind the cold, but I doubt he could even feel it because Mikey bundled him up so tight! Good Daddy!
It was all too much for him and about 10 minutes after he came inside, he passed out in his swing
This picture is from the snow in 2009.
You can see a glimpse of Sam's long hair, and they both have chubbier cheeks. In 2011, we'll have to squeeze Charlie in there somewhere.
this was the first picture of the day. I kept telling them, "Just let me get a few pictures of you and then I'll leave you alone and you can do whatever you want." So once I got those pictures, everytime I'd randomly call Huett's name to snap a picture of him, he kept saying, "You said you were going to leave me alone." So I did.

This is an original pic of the boys this Christmas.
Notice their shirts and some Christmas ornaments are the only things showing.
The possibilities are endless! A lot of Ava's pictures are cuter because I guess maybe this is kinda a girly thing, but if I had just the right pic, it will work good for the boys too. If you are interested in learning how to do it, post a comment. I can give a blog tutorial if anyone else thinks this is as neat as i do! Professional looking effects done for free!! Yay me(and photobucket)

I promise his cheeks are not full of acorns or marshmallows, even though he does look like a chipmunk!
Sometimes I think he'd rather eat his hands, or a handful of my hair which he often tries to do, instead of food.
He went for his 4 month check-up when he turned five months(some things just slip when it's your 3rd baby 4 and under).
Anyway, he was 26 3/4 inches and weighed 17 pounds exactly! Not too shabby!
Sam went for his 3 year checkup(a month late) and he weighs 40 pounds and is 3 feet 3 inches tall.
Doctor Gleason says they are both on the tall side, but he said he wasn't surprised.
In Huett news, he can routinely pick out all the letters of the alphabet, knows the whole alphabet in sign language, knows what sounds the letters make, and can recognize several simple words when he sees them, so I guess in the simplest form, my oldest son knows how to read!
He seems to be much more mature(as mature as a 4 year old can be) in these last few weeks.
My babies are growing up. Can I honestly say, for the first time, I am not sad about the fact that we won't be having any more kids.
When I see a pregnant woman I don't think," oh I wish it were me"
I just think,"bless her heart".
I think I have finally gotten my fill of babies(baby boys anyway)
Now if someone promised me a girl, then it would be on,
but in case you haven't noticed, you can't just pick one up at Wal-mart.
Anyway, I am excited about the near(and distant) future with my three sons!
(and their daddy)!
There is a light at the end of the baby tunnel!

He told me he needed to do some work on my computer, so of course, I obliged.
What are you looking at lady, Can't I get a little privacy!
Next thing I know, things are going south. He couldn't log onto facebook or something. I'm sure he has over 1,000 friends. Anyway, he started banging the keyboard...and then
He went to ask Charlie if he knew what went wrong!
Charlie gave it his best shot with some sound advice, but nothing worked!
That's when Archer started banging his head on the swing.
It's just facebook, I told him! There are more important things in life!
And then just like something off of reality TV, he tried to steal away my camera.
When I put up a fight, he started throwing up his hands!

If anyone sees a similar pair in 6-12 months,
I need something that will coordinate for Charlie Bear
who is 0.5 now and will be almost 1 this summer!
It'll be here before we know it!!
