So this is a compilation of dancing that occurred during a dance night. I made a litte dance video to Spearhead's Soundsystem. Too cute!

Okay, so Kieren is 'that' kid. If you have ever seen a River Runs Through It, Kieren is Brad Pitt's character. He even looks like the little guy that plays him in the movie. He is just got so much charm; And is constantly using it to get out of trouble. No really, I have proof. For instance, every night I put Kieren to bed an hour before Aiden, in hopes that he will fall asleep before I bring Aiden in for bedtime. It usually works, but lately Kieren just sits by the window patiently and daydreams (or more accurately put "night-dreams") until Aiden comes to bed. Then the FUN begins!! (For Kieren that is ;-) He climbs up to Aiden's bunk, and begins to play with him. Now Aiden knows that if he does not sound the big brother alarm (AKA tattling) that he too will get in deep doo doo. So as soon as Kieren successfully reaches the top, I hear "Mommy! Kieren is on my bed!" I go in there with a stern face and a mean mommy voice, and tell Kieren to come to me NOW! (The reason Kieren is not allowed on Aiden's bunk is because it is unsafe for him at his age...if he were older and more seasoned with the up down process, I would let it go) Anyway, this goes on about 5 more times, and I get my biceps workout ;-) So I grabbed the flip on the third time, and this is what happened: (a little disclosure: I did not use my big voice for this video...and really, he doesn't act any different when I do. HA!)
Gosh he is too darn cute to punish...ahhhhh!!

Alright, I am finally getting to the blog. I have a couple of priceless videos of the kids that you have to see. They are hilarious!! So let me set them up for you: The first video is of Kieren in Mommy's sunglasses. I went to the bathroom and came back with him sitting on the couch with them on. I will let the video explain the rest ;-) The second video is of Aiden dancing pretty intensely to Toni Braxton. I know I know, you're thinking "Toni Braxton! WHY!!" All I can say to that is...we have a ton of music channels, and on our designated 'shake your booty' nights, I let the kids say STOP when they hear something that inspires them. And OMG!! This dance was pure inspiration coming from Aiden. HYSTERICAL!! Again, I will let the video speak for itself. Enjoy ;-)
Aiden and his inspirational dance :D

It has been a while, but I am back...hehehe!! I actually hate blogging because I have to have everything perfect. Such as: the font of the text, the grammar, the spelling, and even the post itself has to be funny and entertaining...Ugh!! I am such a high stress perfectionist that I take the joy out of something so basic and fun ;-) So no more!! If I have any mistakes, or the blog is boring...I say "Oh well." LOL!!!
Anyway, we went to Mc Donalds today since it was raining here. We thought that we could feed the kids and let them get some energy out. Is it just me, or are the kids that go to Mickey D's brats and pains in the asses?? I mean not to say that mine aren't, but really what a bunch of degenerates! And their parents can't follow the simplest of rules. Do not EAT in the play area, take you SHOES off in the play area, etc. I have a toddler that picks food off the ground if it is there. He doesn't care, but I do!! If you have your kids eating and dropping their food, and then stepping on it with their grimy shoes, my kid is going to stick that Sh@# in his mouth and chew away. AHHHHHH!!! GROSS!! People follow the rules!! They are there for a reason. Needless to say, not a great experience at the Mc Degenerates ;-)
Okay, now that I got that off my chest, let's talk about something more pleasant. Hmmmmm?? ya, got nothing for you ;-) JK! I have been meaning to post a video of Kieren being a ninja, and Aiden annoying the crap out of NINJA Kieren :) If you pay attention, towards the middle of the video Aiden starts retaliating with his farts. It is hilarious!! Every night Aiden asks to watch the video where his butt says......ffffffffffffffff!! Warning, Kieren does his loud whining (due to his irritation of his brother getting in the way). And Aiden is acting like a poster boy for Mc Donalds....hahahaha!!

Let me just start off by saying that it is a beautiful day here. It is the day after a nice light rain and is in the low 70's.... gorgeous!! I am very thankful to have Sean back as he is guiding me and our family to a great start in the New Year. I feel very blessed and lucky to have great friends and family in my life. Christmas Eve was a complete success!! I had great help with the cooking and cleaning. The food turned out delicious, and the company was even better. We had a great time! Can't wait to do it again next year :)
The Billings Clan
Christmas morning was a success as well. The kids woke up and opened their stockings first, then proceeded to the long awaited Santa gift. Aiden was so excited to see what Santa brought him. Although, I suspect he already knew ;-) LOL!! Kieren on the other hand, just wanted everything; And thought that every gift was his. Somehow I don't think it is a developmental thing with him...hahahaha!! I recorded videos of both boys opening up their Santa gifts:
Aiden opening his Santa gift :)

Christmas day was so much fun hanging with my family. We had a great time! And the cousins are too cute together. Ori and Aiden were inseparable all day. Wherever Aiden went, Ori followed. He even mastered the Billings strut....Ahhh!! I wish I had that on video :) Unfortunately, I think this will be the last year we will all be together for Christmas. Everybody has decided to make their own traditions with their own families :( We are however, trying to convince our other halves that getting together for a New Years Eve bash would be soooooo fun!! Hopefully that follows through, and we can all have the best of both worlds. Christmas with our nuclear families, and then NYE with with everyone. Anyway, here are some pics from Xmas day....Enjoy!!

So last week Aiden was acting up. I know I know, with a 4 year old boy, that's bound to happen. But since it is the Holiday season and Santa is watching, I have MAJOR leverage. So let's just start at the beginning shall we?
Aiden has been wanting a Lightsaber (which is a weapon that is commonly used in the Star War films). He does not want a blue one, since that means he is a good guy, he wants a red one. And yes, you have guessed right...it is the color of a bad guy. Go figure! Anyway, he has been obsessing about this for months, and every time we go walking through Walmart (don't hate...we're poor) he has to point the red double sided Lightsaber out, and say "Look mommy, it's a red Lightsaber!! Can I have it PLEASE!!" I say "NO!! you will poke your eye out." JK!! Stole that line from the Christmas story. And if you have never seen it, I feel sorry for you. So back to the topic at hand...
I suggest to him every time we have this sighting per say, that he should ask Santa for it. But there is a catch...and Ohhh how I love this catch. I tell him that Santa does not bring toys to boys and girls who have been naughty. I say that if he really wants that lightsaber, he has to be a good listener and be a good little boy. Okay, so that is pretty general, but it covers every base. I am not going to say "Well Aiden you have to brush your teeth really good at night, or you have to eat all your dinner....)" Because, let's face it, then he can be an a$$ the rest of the time. So to be a "good listener" covers it all. Brilliant!! Thank you, I will be signing autographs next Friday.
So one day last week he was being a true and honest PILL!! Just not listening at all!! So I called Sean (who was out of town) and told him to call and pretend to be Santa. I told Sean to use a big HO HO HO Jolly voice, so that Aiden would really think it was Santa. Unfortunately, I only got the last part of the conversation on film. But here it is: My son is not a fool.....bummer ;(

Sorry it has taken me so long to write. I have been real busy with Sean being gone, and have had absolutely no down time....ugh! I am not going to lie, at first I was excited to get the house to myself and only have to worry about picking up after two boys instead of three ;) But now.....I miss him sooooo much!! Decorating for the Holidays by yourself is no fun, and there is no substitute for Daddy :( I can't wait for him to come home and have the Billings tribe back together again.
In the meantime, Aiden has learned to ride his bike with no training wheels. His friend Gavin started doing it, and then Aiden was insisting that he could do it too. He learned right away!! No practicing, just got on the bike and rode it into the sunset :) I had to, of course, go to Walmart and get the next bike size up since he kept saying that his other one was too small and for babies. No worries though, I did not break the bank. Thank God for cheap bikes! So we passed his first bike to Anna (Gavin's little sister), until Kieren gets big enough to give it a go himself. Can't wait for that......JK!! I can totally wait. STOP growing up boys!
Aiden and the street gang riding their bikes!
Another great milestone has happened for Kieren! He can now point to his nose when you ask him where it is.....YIPPEE!! Little Kieren is so whatevs about everything. Both Aiden and I were clapping and cheering for him, and he just went about his business with out even an ounce of excitement. Aiden used to get all giddy when we acknowledged his milestones. Kieren on the other hand, just goes to the next thing his little brain is telling him to do; Which usually consists of some type of eating. Boy that kid can eat!! Watch out for fingers people ;) I usually hang a sign around his neck that says "He will bite the hand that feeds him." Ahhhh!! JK!! But, I have seriously been bitten more than once in the hand feeding process...LOL!!
"Where's your nose Kierbear?"
