My Funny Boys

I'm always telling people how funny my boys are, but I can't always come up with the things that they say. So, I've decided that I need to start writing about them in my blog.

John is so smart, but it always comes out in the strangest ways! Tonight, we were pulling into the parking lot at Arby's for dinner. All of sudden, John yells out, "Park it Daddy!" Mind you, we have never heard him use this phrase before!

The other night, I was trying to open Robby's sippy cup to add more milk for dinner. John asked what I was doing when he saw me struggling to get the lid off (my fingers were actually cramping up from the grip). Out of the blue, John yells out "Go, go Mommy!" He is such an encourager. I started laughing and got out a new cup.

One night this week, the boys were in their playroom having a good time. John comes running down the hallway shouting, "Mommy! Mommy! Robby's poopy!" then he starts to gag! Yes, he is just like his father! I look up and Robby is standing in the playroom doorway saying, "I not poop-py!" He was; he just didn't want to stop playing to get changed. John couldn't look at Robby without gagging until I finished getting him changed!

It is never boring at the Steadman House!

Children's Program at Church

Robby and John were able to participate in the children's Christmas program at church. The church used the little kids to be part of the nativity scene in the program. Robby was a cow, and John was a camel. I think they were the cutest animals ever!

The Morning After

I posted below the night it snowed in Baytown. Here are the pictures from the morning after. It was estimated that the east side of Houston received around 3 inches of snow; more than any other part of Houston. I think my house looked beautiful!

It was strange going to work that morning. As I traveled west towards Houston, I could see the amount of snow getting less and less until finally just west of Channelview there was no more snow left on the ground. I, on the other hand, had a couple of inches still left on the back of my car when I got to work, 50 miles later!
