Merry Christmas...a day late!

I hope you all had a very merry and wonderful Christmas. We enjoyed spending Christmas with my sister and her family. Charlie got some pretty nice gifts and we are thankful to been gifted time with family!

I didn't really feel obligated to post on Christmas, since we were busy with the holiday festivities (and blessed with splendid weather). So I now will give you a bit of an update!

My nephew James had a wonderful time learning that the pretty wrapped boxes under the tree actually contained things inside!! Charlie really isn't old enough to comprehend that, but all the same, enjoyed trying to eat the paper.

I did want to share with you a picture to help hold you over for a few more days until I can get more pictures here it is.....

hope that tides you over but makes you want more...I promise there will somehow be more!!

Man, it's crazy that he's already 6mo.! He seems to love being 6mo. I love it to most of the time, but today I'm not having as much fun as I would like. My eyes hurt and I am exhausted from dealing with Charlie, whose dealing with change.

We are enjoying our visit overall though and tomorrow is Christmas eve!

Charlie will once again get to see his grandpa Lin whose coming here for xmas and then it's off to my uncle's (not on xmas but a couple days after)

Since I'm not feeling well, today is not the day I'm going to manage to get pictures up, but hopefully tomorrow will be better!

I just wanted to post to let you all know how our ongoing visit is going. We took some really great pictures today of the boys together and hopefully I will be able to get those up in the next few days!

Our trip is going well and we are getting used to the schedule and environment around here! It is a little bit nippy outside, so we mostly just spend time in the apartment. That's okay though, because this gives us ample amount of time to spend with Susan and James!

Okay well, off to read...I'll try to post a more in depth post tomorrow....

We are having a wonderful visit in NC thus far!

James and Charlie are having a blast together, smiling all the time and speaking baby language among themselves. They are too cute and I wish all of you could see how well our boys interact! And how smart and observant they both are!

My title is what it is because I packed my fancy schmancy camera to take lots of pictures and then forgot to pact the memory card, sooooo I can't really take ANY pictures! We will be relying on Suze to take lots of pictures and then somehow get them from there to you!!

I am such a silly for leaving that, in the rush who can blame me though!

OK well, I gotta go get ready for more fun, so I will update you all tomorrow!

Sicko! (by sandra sylvester..not michael moore!)

During the worst of the ice storm Charlie came down with the stomach flu! It was not a fun few days, our power went off twice but not for very long. With a sick boy it seemed like forever though!
Eating was not a fun thing for Charlie during the sick days but he did find comfort in chewing on the tylenol bottle. (which by the way, my nephew liked too so I think it's a universal comfort thing.)

I seized the opportunity to take a couple pictures.....hope you enjoy!

one of the few smiles we got during his sickness....

p.s. he's smiling more for pictures now, so look forward to more goofy grins!

Setting up for failure!

I'm just not up to doing this whole everyday blogging thing, but I will continue to do it as often as I can.
It will also be more difficult to do it while I am in N.C. , leaving Wednesday! I will be there for about three weeks and I'm not sure that I will ALWAYS have internet access but again, I will do it as often as I can.

Sorry about yesterday, time flies when you have a baby!
And when you have so many things to do!

Good thing I have a boy that is happy to help with the daily chores....

He doesn't actually like it when the job is done, so he elects to spend some extra time in the hamper...
(p.s. those are my nanny's (Mikela) hands holding the hamper)..

okay, I'll try to post tomorrow.

This post will be short and sweet. Since there are so many of you, and I have lack of time and energy, instead of me sending you all a Christmas greeting card....please watch OUR CHRISTMAS GREETING....via internet.

Hope you all enjoy!

again here is the link... CHRISTMAS GREETING.

Are we in Iceland?

I guess when I said I would post EVERY day I meant every few days! I was planning on posting everyday when to my surprise when I went to post our computer wasn't working. As well as our computer, the tv, the bathroom light and the oven weren't working! Don't worry our house didn't have that many malfunctioning appliances at once, we just lost our electricity (as well as hundreds and hundreds of others, who are still without it) due to this,


A close up to show you all how thick it was....

If you look at the grass you can see max's (our dog) favorite perch is a glacier!

Now you might understand why power is going out all over the state...

Now the storm has passed but the dangers now are all the falling branches (and whole trees!), because of the weight of the ice!
So hang in there blog readers, the worst is over and a post will hopefully be there for you tomorrow!

Love till next post,

P.s. Charlie has also had a bit of the stomach flu, so that in itself is excuse enough for me to skip a day or two of blogging!

It's a miracle!

We had our first playgroup....

Samantha and Caitlin...

Samantha loves to hold Charlie! (with a little assistance)...

And on her own!!

Haven't done this in a while!

Do you ever miss those days when I usta blog once a week? Do you ever ask yourself, 'self, why did Sandra stop blogging?'. If so your worries are over my weekly posts are back!

I would like to start off by saying I got a new camera!! So pictures are on the way! I also have been taking a few pictures with disposable cameras so I will have those up here so too. Maybe I will make December my personal Blog posting month! Myblopomo? Sablopomo? Anyway, moving on.

I check a few blogs and the most important one is my sisters, and I was just there and saw that she took a test that determined that she is pretty addicted to blogging. With all my old addictions washed away with the arrival of my baby, I have no healthy addiction (can an addiction be healthy?) so I'm hoping that this can be my thing once more!

I decided to see how much I was addicted:

55%How Addicted to Blogging Are You?
with that said I start, on this the 7th of December, I start my own blog posting month!
