Dee-troit Basketball!!!!

Santa brought us tickets for the Detroit Pistons so that is how we spent New Years Eve. It was a fun game - they won by 40 points. Joey had so much fun, but he was afraid of the pyrotechnics at the beginning when they introduced the players. I think it just took him by surprise and freaked him out because you could feel the heat from the fire all the way up in the second level where we were. He laughed and laughed when everybody yelled "Dee-troit Basketball" and he also loved booing the ref for bad calls - he thought that was funny too.
I had fun trying to get pictures of the players with my new camera. The picture of them lined up for the National Anthem turned out pretty good.

Oh Christmas Tree

Last weekend we finally got the tree up and decorated. Joey loved hanging ornaments (there seem to be a lot of ornaments on the bottom compared to the rest of the tree!)

Decorating Christmas cookies

Last week we made and decorated our cut out Christmas cookies. Joey has been having so much fun with it - I think he ate more icing than what ended up on the cookies.

Joey's "No-Man" - it's all fun and games until someone loses an arm!

Joey has been wanting to build a snowman (or as he says, "no-man". Finally, this weekend we got a lot of snow up at the lake. Here is the finished product:

Unfortunately, Honey loves to chew on sticks that she finds in the snow, as you can see she is eyeing the "no-man's" arm:

Here he is chasing Honey trying to get No-man's arm back:

A boy and his baby doll AKA future blackmail photos

Joey forgot his teddy bear when we stayed at Grandma's on Thanksgiving, so Grandma found this old doll baby. Joey got so attached to her that he even wanted his hair to look like her.
