Little hands working together.
I love this picture, they are such good and loving brothers and to me this just symbolizes their relationship. There is rarely a "mine" spoken in our house and the boys actually love to share with each other. Lets just hope that Greyson doesn't "share" this cold with the rest of us.
According to Nicholas, this is Captain Smith from the Titanic (one of his obsessions) and he is going down with the ship.
This poor guy only looks happy because he is comepletely unaware that he is about to become the "man over board" in less than 10 seconds.
Our finished ship. Why do they make these Lego's so darn small? I think I have eye strain. We all 3 worked on it, however the boys had a little trouble staying focused during the building process. They were very impatient and we had several Titanic scenes enacted during the building process. I am just thankful the ship did not actually hit the ice burg until after we were finished.
So now we are full swing into the New Year, trying to keep our resolutions and already having difficulty. Embarking on new adventures (again, I will update on this in a later post) and trying to do much more than stay afloat. I have no intention of sharing my resolutions on line other than to say one resolution of mine was to take things in stride and enjoy the moment. Most of you know that I am pretty much OCD and I worry about things, excessively. So far I have been able to stick with my resolution of enjoying the moment and not worrying about the next so much. I was so sad at the end of last year, looking back and realizing that I was spending so much more time worrying about what is coming next that I forgot to enjoy what I was doing. When the boys were sick, I didn't do much more than hang out with them, I let many of my OCD habits go and just spent time with them. I realized how much they were changing, growing by the minute and I don't ever want to look back and think "gee, I wish I had paid attention to that" or "I wish I had spent more time enjoying that". That is my biggest resolution and one I fully intend on keeping.
So Happy New Year and I look forward to sharing many of those minutes in 2011 with you guys.
