Keep Ben in your prayers

he is getting tubes tomorrow morning and hopefully this will help us avoid all of the antibiotics he has been on in his short 6 mos. of life. We have to be at the hospital at 6:30AM and will hopefully be home by noon!!

Just thought I would post some pics of him before his first hospital adventure tomorrow.

He really loves his first tast of biter biscuit!! I wonder if he actually ate any of it?

OH, please do not leave me in here, I do not want to go to sleep!!

Oops . .

I forgot to post pics of Ben adding his ornament to the tree. He would have rather eaten the thing, but hey, at least we gave it our best shot!! (I also told Chad he need to look more pleasant. He looks awfully grumpy in these pics)

Decorating the tree

My kiddos just love decorating the Christmas tree. Needless to say all of the ornaments are about waist high except for the ones I will not let them touch. (Chad has bought me an ornament every year we have been together!!) We decorated the day before Thanksgiving and I have been so busy since then that boxes and other decorations have been just laying around my house. It looks terrible. (Okay, so I was not really that busy on Sat. or Sun. but I was still trying to recoup from the 18 hour shopping day on Friday. Yes I said 18 hours just ask my mom, Annie, or Katie. Our bodies were very sore after that expedition.) I am hoping to get Chad on the outside decorations on Weds. Keep your fingers crossed!!

Bath Time

Ben just loves to sit up in the bathtub (today was his first time). He thinks that he is so big and it makes me a little sad when I realize this is the last time I will be doing some of this baby stuff!!

This last pic is for Aunt Annie. Do you think Ben needs another hair cut??

Funny Kids

Max and Sam really wanted their pictures taken after they caught mommy taking pictures of Ben. They put these bracelets on their heads and thought they were so clever. Don't all men think they are clever? :) (I really do bathe Sam, he had just gotten into the oreos)
