Our Silly Little Boy

Spencer has been absolutely hilarious lately! It seems like everything that comes out of his mouth makes us laugh. Mostly because he is so serious about the things he says. For example:
Sunday, Robert was getting Spencer ready for church. Rob had already picked out some clothes for Spence to wear so he told Spencer to come put on his shirt. Spencer told Robert, "I don't want to wear that shirt." Robert said something like," Come on, Bud, just put your shirt on." But again Spencer replied, "I don't want to wear that shirt." He was very adamant about not wearing that shirt. Finally Robert told Spencer that he's just a little boy and that he doesn't have a choice in what he wears to which Spencer yelled back, "BUT I WANT CHOICES!!!" HA HA !

Robert got Guitar Hero for Christmas. Spencer likes to watch Robert play all the songs. When you pass off a song, the words "You Rock" pop up and then Robert and Spencer go back and forth telling each other how much the other one rocks. You Rock, No You Rock, No You Rock! It's pretty funny!

The nursery always comes into primary while the big kids are in class to have singing time. Today, Spencer was the oldest kid in nursery! It is so amazing how fast he's growing up. He'll be 3 in July!!! Anyhow, he does so great singing all the songs and doing the motions. Everyone loves to hear Spencer talk because he has such a sweet little voice.

We switched to 9am church at the being of the year. Yikes! It actually has been pretty great! Spencer is really well behaved that early in the morning. He knows that when it's time to take the sacrament that we sit reverently and think about Jesus! Incredible! He even tries to get Mady fold her arms!

Spencer is in love. In love with Madelyn! They are such good friends. It makes me so happy to see him be so loving and sweet to her. It's crazy but when we first had Madelyn and were still in the hospital, Spencer wanted nothing to do with her. He pretended like she didn't exist. He wouldn't even look at her. But now, he absolutely loves her. One of his favorite things to do is to climb into her crib in the morning and play. It's so sweet! She loves him, too. You can tell that she thinks she's just as big as Spencer so she gets pretty frustrated when he runs off to play and she can't follow. I'm trying to enjoy every loving moment because I know that it won't always be like this.

I'm sorry! I just realized that this post sounds really braggy, but I'm just one proud mom! We are SOOO blessed to have such a sweet little guy! He is an amazing boy and I can't wait to see what else he has in store for us!

Merry Christmas!

HO HO HO! Merry Christmas! This post is only kinda late...ok it's really late, but what's a gal to do?! Christmas at the Sullivan home was wonderful! We had such a fun day with our family! Robert and I had a blast putting out all the presents...I mean...helping Santa put out all the gifts for each other and the kiddos. : ) It was so fun to get everything set up just right.

Spencer was one spoiled boy this year. I now understand why parents go broke this time of year. It's so easy to go overboard! I felt like everywhere I went I saw something that would make me think something along the lines of, "Oh wow, Spencer would LOVE that!" or " He really needs that." It was CRAZY! I finally had to make a list of the things I knew he was getting so I could see that he had plenty. It was so much fun, though. He got all kinds of cool toys from his grandparents, too, like an awesome train table and rad lawn mower. What a lucky boy! Maddie had a great Christmas, too! She got all kinds of cute toys, books, shoes, and pjs!
I went a little crazy on Robert, too. I kinda bought him Guitar Hero. I couldn't help it! I just love buying things for other people! He was SO surprised! I loved it!!! I kinda ruined the surprise of my gift. I accidentally found out that he got me the coat that I wanted. I was SO excited to open it Christmas day! We opened gifts at our house Christmas morning, then went to Robert's parents house to open gifts and spend time with family. Later that evening, we had a delicious dinner at Katie and Ryan's house. All in all, it was a GREAT Christmas!

Spencer got a new coat and snow pants so of course he had to try them out! The picture above is Spencer trying to make a snow angel. Pretty funny! He also got a new snow shovel so he HAD to help dad shovel the drive way. Such a great helper!


My dad was so great and took Spencer and Emma to Gatorland one of the days we were in Florida. They had the BEST time! Here are some pictures of the kids and the wildlife:
