Boys meet Santa!

We had a a special visit from the North Pole… and the boys seemed to really like him.  Landon even got a few tugs on the beard to make sure it was real.

Update – Nov. 2010

We stop, we think – hmm, where in the world has the year gone.  We can’t believe our boys are now 9 months old.  It is crazy how fast time goes. Hudson is now 20 pounds, 10 ounces.  And Landon is 17 pounds, 10 ounces.   They are about the same height.  We’ll know for sure when they measure them at their doctors appointment tomorrow.

Here is their monthly photo:

And because it is fun to look back, check out their 3 month photo:

We decided to put up Christmas the weekend before Thanksgiving.  After getting over the neighbors laughing at us, it was all good.

And we now have four!  and we now have four Our tree

The boys absolutely love the train.

We love trains like daddy

It's that time a year again

Playing is our favorite hobby these days.  And we are good at it.  Landon looks like he wanting to be called upon, but he is actually trying to reach the tree.

While mom planted flowers, Landon played.  And laughed.

Justin (my college roommate) and his family stopped by to visit. 

Don't worry L, I would be making that face too if J had a hold of me E with Logan Logan and Landon meeting for the first time Landon and Carolyn

Karen (from my office) brought over her three year old twin girls to meet the boys.  It was so fun to see them interact.  Kristen and Kaitlyn were also very nice to give the boys a basketball hoop.  Thank you.

For Turkey Day, we went to my parents house.  It was a good time with the family.  We all wrote what we were thankful for on a leaf and then read them at dinner.  As you could imagine, Hudson said he was most thankful for food.  :)

We went to see the Hardin’s new home.  The boys love the playroom.  If they could only walk, I’m sure they would have loved it even more.  And as an added bonus, we got to see Mark (Dan’s brother), Kim and Hadley.

And I turned my head for two minutes, and mom is allowing Hudster to play with Barbie.  Don’t worry, we had a long talk on the way home.  I think I took care of it.

Daddy turns his head for two minutes and look what mom does

And more playing:

Hi bro Happy Kiddos My turn

Landon is obsessed with computers.  So much that he tried crawling from the couch to the ottoman.   Landon is determined Hud

We made a trip to see Granddad.  I just love the photos of the boys holding his hand.  There are 90 years between them.

As you can see in the pics, their personalities are starting to come out.  Check out these photos of them wrestling just before bedtime.  Landon might be smaller, but he uses his speed and agility to counter attack.  I see many more episodes of this in our future!
