Christmas Morning at Home
Waking up with laryngitis ... not so cute! But I somehow managed to channel my inner LC (Lauren Conrad that is) and took advantage of my newfound raspy voice. The boys were spoiled rotten by both of their everyone, especially their Grandparents and their Aunts and Uncles! The boys even received an extra special visit from a certain Mr. Santa Claus on his day off! How lucky is that!
All the kiddies with Santa Claus!
Here are two photos of the boys with their favourite Grandparents! Notice something about these photos? Both their hands are in their mouths in both these shots! Oy!
Pappy and Nani
Noni and The Grandfather
And last but not least, I had to post a photo of yours truly! I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! We sure did!

... when all through the house. Not a creature was stirring ... except for Jackson and Jameson who wanted to sit on the kitchen counter and look cute! This was taken right before we gave them a bath. As you can see, their hair is getting super long and difficult to manage. In fact, it's starting to curl! But that only happens when they get super hot after a good snuggle with Mummy or Daddy!

Getting baptised ... what a good looking family! ;)
The boys got baptised yesterday! Hooray! And it was a great day! Now ... is it so wrong that one of the highlights for me was their baptismal cake? It was seriously amazing! Not only did it look absolutely incredible, it tasted like heaven! I was so happy with the way it turned out! Some of you may know that I am taking a class in cake decorating. In fact, some of you have been treated to my delectable treats but I cannot take credit for baking or decorating this cake. I was just way too busy with other more pressing matters (chuckle). But the gal I hired to create this cake used my ideas and just blew us all away. If you're looking at this cake with large amounts of drool hanging down your chin, you should know that it was a blueberry sponge cake with blueberry cheesecake flavoured buttercream. All the decorations, including the sugar babies (molded in the likes of Jax and Jaz) were also edible and oh-so-yummy. Did I eat the sugar babies? Seriously, how could you even ask me a question like that! I couldn't eat them ... I just couldn't! So, we stored them in a safe place for the boys to see when they're older!
Oh right ... I almost forgot to write about their baptism (laugh). The ceremony was beautiful! We were so worried about them spitting up and ruining their outfits during the ceremony, but they didn't spit up once! Thank goodness for that! And they didn't cry once ... in fact, Jackson slept in my arms for most of the ceremony haha! Anyway, they looked so handsome in their little satin suits and hats! But if I had to pick what I loved the most, it would have to be the leather shoes they wore that said "My Baptisme Day" on the side LOL! I think they were from Portugal. Too funny!
They were lovingly fighting each other when this shot was taken
We are so happy to welcome Auntie Nessa and Uncle Mark into our family! As Godparents, we know that they will guide our boys in the way of the Lord. They'll also be highly influenced by Mark's musical abilities and Vanessa's style sense! We're looking forward to starting many family traditions with the Joseph and Lovery-Pham Family!

Jameson just cracks me up! He's so cool and calm. And tonight, he showed his gansta side. Who knew! Maybe he was reacting to my new "do". Yup! I got my haircut again. I don't have much of a life outside of my boys these days (not that I'm complaining), so getting my haircut is the best I can do to keep it interesting! :)
Man, are we good lookin' or what! ;)

I caught a precious moment on video yesterday! Jameson and Jackson were having a nap in Mummy and Daddy's bed. Jameson started giggling so I ran for the camera, but all I got was his sleepy smiles. No giggles on this video, but his smiles will warm your heart! Enjoy!

Our boys are getting so big! They're sitting up like big boys on our leather couch (sniff). Where did my little babies go? As much as I love watching them grow, I also wish I could freeze precious moments, such as this, in time. I wish they could be little babies forever! Looking at them now, I can't believe they were only 4 pounds when they were born! Time is flying by .... I feel so ... old!

I actually wasn't sure if I wanted to do the show at all. But I quickly realised that it would be a once in a lifetime opportunity that we couldn't pass up! And it'll be something we, as a family, can look back on later in life and enjoy! We can't wait to see it! We'll let you know when it airs! :)

"Hmm this place seems familiar"
Two serious infections in 5 months! What gives! This time, Jackson was the victim of a UTI (urinary tract infection). He started crying early one afternoon, just like Jameson did when he got sick, and we just knew something was up. We gave him some Baby Tylenol and watched him for the afternoon. By 400pm, he was back to his normal self. But at 700pm, a fever spiked and we knew we had to bring him in! He spent 4 days at McMaster on IV antibiotics and will need 10 days of oral antibiotics now that he's home. He's been in good spirits despite his bout with diarhhea and diaper rash. Unfortunately, we missed out on celebrating Halloween with the boys so we celebrated the occasion at McMaster! They wore their hospital scrubs (I know, very appropriate) and mingled with the ladies err ... nurses!
Jackson & Jameson, our little heartbreakers!
We've learned what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger and we've been through so much with these boys already ... nothing really phases us! I guess that's a good thing. We're just hoping that this is it for the time being. As much as we love Hotel McMaster, we love our home better!

Halloween is quickly approaching and we wanted to make sure that we enjoyed every moment of it. So, Vanessa and I decided to hang out with the kiddies one night and carve pumpkins. I'm not just a yummy mummy you know! I have mad skillz!
Anyway, I forgot how time consuming it is to carve out a pumpkin, but it was well worth the effort! Not that Vanessa and I were competing for the title of Best Pumpkin Carver Extraordinaire but I totally won this battle and she'll completely admit it! Vanessa carved a castle and I carved four ghosts singing entitled "Rhythm and Boos". Get it! :)

Jameson isn't pleased that I'm grabbing his leg but I don't care!
It looks so tasty! I just wanna bite it a bit ... just a little bit ...
Aww Ma! I was just getting started! Hmmph! You're getting my super pout!
