Drew sure did have fun yesterday! We took Sam to my parents so that we could really concentrate on Drew having a good time. There was snow, hot chocolate, chili, chesse dip and plenty of laughter. Drew went down the hill with Austin most of the time.
Here they are heading down the hill! Drew was steering - if that's even possible.
Back up the hill... This photo is a trick. It really looks like Drew is coming up by himself.
Austin graciously pulled all 30lbs of him up the hill EVERY single time.

Now that I am an adult -the idea of snow doesn't really excite me all that much. Probably because I live 40 miles from where I work and it makes it impossible to get there... I'm not one of these people who risk my life to make it to work. When I didn't have kids it was a much different story - so maybe I should rephrase... I'm not going to risk their LIVES so that I can go to work.
Drew waited all day for Brandon to get home so that he could throw snowballs and make a snowman! The snow was pretty powedery so it was hard for Drew them to make snowballs let alone a snowman...
There wasn't much "still" time and it was really hard to snap a photo of both of them together... This is all I got.
Well, I did get this really cute one of him watching for his dad to come back out... It really wouldn't be bad if he didn't have snot running everywhere!
That's just how it is with little boys. Snot, snot and more snot... It rules the world - you could shoot a Mucinex commercial around both of my kids.

That bond between Drew and Lizzie is still very strong. They love eachother so much - she is constantly "mothering" and he graciously allows her to.
Happy Birthday Lizzie!! We love you:)

After seeing this photo of Samuel at 6pm on Christmas Day --- you are right to question my parenting. My boy is a klutz. I didn't think that it could get worse than Drew but here it is for the world to see.
The left cheek is the result of him falling into a pole on Christmas Eve and the "road rash" looking marks on the other side of his face are from where he fell into the wall and his grandparents house on Christmas Morning.
And yes, just like his big brother - he has boogers in his nose. That's just how we roll around here. There aren't enough tissues in this world --- I have surrendered to the snotty nose.

Oh wow... What a great morning we had! Drew got his "Bumblebee Mask" and that's all he cared about! I'm so glad that we didn't go crazy with presents this year!! My boys were more than satisfied with the wonderful gifts that Santa dropped under our tree this year.
Here's Samuel running around with his "dump truck"... He doesn't quite get the whole "Santa" thing but he sure did play along very well! He didn't even care about taking that truck out of the box!
My three boys... Our hearts all beat to the same tune. I love them so much and watching the love on their faces this Christmas was such a joy for me! I don't think its even possible to become immune to little boys with "bed hair" and character underwear running around a Christmas tree in excitement!!!
I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! Happy New Year friends!
Look at these two Jokers! This picture was taken last year at their first "Withrow Christmas Eve". Obviously, they are both teething and chewing their fingers like crazy boys. They were supposed to be 4 weeks apart but since Ike's mom went 2 weeks late and I went almost 3 weeks early, they ended up only being born one week apart!
Here they are this year... Look at that gut on my kiddo. He outgrew his Christmas outfit this year but I squeezed it on him anyway. They still aren't real interested in each other - maybe next year! I hope Janet keeps that chair forever.... its a good way to measure how much they've grown!!!
I wonder if we'll be able to get them into that chair when their sixteen!!!
