Sleeping and Cooking :)

This was taken in Nov/Dec. I have always loved to see them sleeping on Damond's chest. That is also one of Damond's favorite things. Unfortunately for him, Alex was never really a cuddler so he hardly ever slept on his chest. This is one of those rare opportunities ( I think he was sick).
Alex is a night owl like me. If we ever let Thomas stay up late, he would usually fall asleep, but Alex will not. He goes and goes and goes till we put him to bed! :)

Thomas (and Alex) love to cook! For Christmas, we took some friends of ours to the Temple lights. I thought it would be fun to make sugar cookies so Thomas could help make and decorate them. hmmm, I hadn't realized that I had never made sugar cookies. I know what you are thinking, (how can you mess up sugar cookies?) :) I didn't really, they just didn't turn out as well as I wanted. And I thought you just use cake frosting for the frosting... nope! That tasted kinda weird. But the kids loved them. and the adults were gracious :)

I bet they just loved helping. Ethan helped me make valentines cookies this year and it was totally fun. Kids make holidays so much better. I miss you.

It's nice to see you get a few moments of peace and quiet. Even if it is only when everyone else is sleeping. Love you!

Ha! I've tried sugar cookies about once every othe year. I can't get them to turn out right either! I bet the boys had a blast trying to cut them out.
