Today, we decided it was time for Kyle to ditch the baby "Moe" haircut and to get a big boy haircut. The photo on the top was taken a few hours before his trip to the barber shop, and the photo on the bottom was taken a few hours after Kyle's trip to the barber shop. As you can see, he is a remade "Bob-o".

We took a trip to Philadelphia today to see the dinosaurs. Matthew has been learning about dinosaurs in school and Kyle just loves them! So we decided to head off to a museum. The kids had a blast! The boys both had the same favorite parts, T-REX, of course! Mallory didn't really have a favorite part. She enjoyed the museum but given her choice, she probably would have rather been having tea with some princesses somewhere. Matthew learned a lot about dinosaurs today, mostly the shocker of the lifelike size. He couldn't believe they were that big!
Matthew was sad for it to come to an end. This was his very first try at sports. He did really well and wants to try out for Spring. The first girl on the left, Nicole, was Matthew's girlfriend for this session. Let's see if he finds another one in the spring.
I don't think I can call this a real haircut or a first. Well, Mallory had her bangs trimmed about a year ago, but I wouldn't let them touch the back. On Saturday, she got the back of her hair trimmed for the first time! I went in with the intention of a cut, but I suppose deep down inside I am not ready to part with that baby hair or that last little bit of curl she has left. So, she doesn't even look like she had a haircut. They took off an inch off the sides and an inch and a 1/4 off the back. Maybe next time we can go for a full cut. I don't know maybe when she's 3? LOL! (or 4)

Mallory spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in the hospital with pneumonia. It was a very difficult time, but as much as Mallory didn't like the IV or getting poked with needles she was still in good holiday spirits. Christmas morning Kim's mom showed up early at the hospital so that Kimberly could come home and see the boys open their Christmas presents. Then we all got dressed and went to the hospital to visit Mallory and take her some presents. She was very happy with her gifts, as you can see in the photos. When I had to take the boys home on Christmas day, and Mallory had to stay at the hospital it was a tough scene. Matthew and Mallory clung to each other. Both were crying. Mallory just kept saying "home, home" and Matthew didn't want to leave her there. It was heartbreaking. A few hours late Mallory was released from the hospital and we had a great Christmas dinner together at Uncle Freddy and Aunt Niecey's house. Me and Kimmie would not have asked for a better Christmas present than to have our entire family together.
