Happy Birthday Jesus!

We had a great Christmas...besides the fact that every male member of our little family was sick. Dan missed out on Christmas Eve lunch at Alcorn's (barfing at home, even before the nauseating performance by the Seahawks), but his family was able to come over later that evening to open presents.

The kids, of course, were spoiled rotten by grandparents and aunties/uncles, and even though Jake became obsessed with some fun toys, he still remembered to say "mimi timtus" (merry christmas) and "appy birfday Deeduhs" (happy birthday Jesus). I'm sure Ty was thinking the same thing with every mouthful of wrapping paper he attempted to swallow.

Christmas morning was just the four of us, and it was a lot of fun. Between wiping snotty noses and reminding Jake to cover his mouth when he was hacking up a lung, we opened some great gifts and ate some wonderful food. Oh yes, and took some cute pix:

OK, anyone else have issues with getting two kids #1 to look at the camera and #2 smile at the same time? This was the best one we got, which was actually the first of at least 392 attemps. But now...check out the last one:
Honestly, how many more times are we going to do this, Mom?

Can anybody guess what Jake's favorite thing is these days? (Besides cars and trucks, that is.) Why is Elmo the coolest thing imaginable to every kid everywhere?

Ty keeps trying to sit on the Elmo chair like big bro, but can't quite get his body to cooperate with his brain. He's very determined won't be long!

Sunday night traditions

Every Sunday night (during football season) we go to Alcorn's house for dinner and football with a great group of friends and family. The Sunday before Halloween, the kids all dressed up so we could get some cute pix (and one more day of use out of those costumes!)
Left to right is Joel Moffat, Jenna Wood (thrilled to be in costume!) Jake, Ty, and Kari Moffat.

Batman loves to play basketball at "Mamma and Poppy Ha-torn's" house. They have a Pop-a-Shot which has not only become one of Jake's favorite things, it's also become quite an obsession with the big boys of the group. Be sure to buy the next edition of the Guinness Book of World Records because these guys are seriously good.

Baby's growing up!!

We can't believe it's been almost 8 months! What a babe, huh! These pix are too cute to not share with the world!

Pizza, pizza

The latest craze is called "Pizza," and...well, you're missing out. Because Jake learned how to say the word pizza correctly while jumping on his bed, now when he screams out "pizza" it's not only a favorite meal, it's also an aerobic activity.

Pics of the boys

Who are we? Dan and Angela Stump. Happily married since July 20, 2001. Happily Daddy and Mommy since August 3, 2004 when Jake arrived, and again when little brother Ty joined us on March 10, 2006. Seeking to love God and love each other more every day.

Jake enjoying every lick of his birthday ice cream from Auntie Jane (Jeen) and Uncle Curtis (Too-toos).
Happy baby Ty, crawling in search of his latest adventure.

Jake loves getting down face to face with Ty to teach him all the important things a big brother should. Like his numbers (nun, two, tee...) and his ABC's (including beeble-boo, ets, y, and z.)
