Today the kiddos wore their fun Christmas clothes to church! Dressing up girls is slightly more fun than dressing up boys. ;)

Kate would only sit still if we gave her crackers.

More crackers please?

You're taking too long! And stop touching me!

Happy with a mouth full of crackers, and now Mom gets to try and take pictures so that it doesn't look like her mouth is full of crackers. Dad entertains the kids above.

Well, this is more real.

Seth is clearly fed up with this.

One of the few good shots

And it was a good thing we did this before church. Sundays are always hard with Kate missing her morning nap and struggling to make it through church.

Proof! Kate threw her first temper tantrum on Friday. And my mom doesn't believe me. So she had another one this afternoon, and I grabbed the camera.

All out kicking and screaming on the floor because she didn't get her way. (Ignore whatever Kevin might say in the comments.)

And two minutes later, all is back to normal and playing.

And can I say that I am SO excited for Christmas?! AHHH! 6 more days! I think I am more excited than Seth. :)

Oh, and before I forget, I want to write down a couple things Seth said today that made us laugh:

"We don't eat poop!"

"Dad, I want you to put on your black shirt. [Why?] Because I don't like it when you wear red."

"Hoo!" (He meant to say "Phew!" as he worked really hard to drag the chair across the dining room and living room so that he could climb on it to turn on the lights.)

And it just makes me smile when I come downstairs every morning because he will run down here first and turn on the Christmas tree lights all by himself and the lamps on the end tables. It's so peaceful, dark and pretty. I thought Kevin did it, but then he said that he never did it. So we found out it was Seth. Love that little boy!

You need to make a video of the
tantrum. Looks like she is lying on
her belly is all!

Kristen, you are such a great wife and mother. I appreciate all you do for me and the kids. You are beautiful, intelligent, hardworking, loving, generous, thoughtful, talented, etc. I love you!

I agree with Stef. And Kevin, you are definitely a brat!
