Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas!

Tis’ the season to see Santa in person & tell him your wishes for Christmas!  The boys love when they see a picture of Santa on an ornament, stocking, decoration.. you name it! see him in real life is a bit scary!

We definitely captured the “get me away from him” picture that we will show them later & look back and laugh at. :)

P.S.- Is this not a great looking Santa?! He starts growing his beard in May!

Boys will be boys….

We always knew both boys were full of personality, but man.. now they are really FULL of personality at almost 22 months. :)  As I was looking through pictures on the camera today, I couldn’t help but think, Wow.. boys sure are wild and do the funniest/craziest things that girls wouldn’t ever think about doing. Some of the latest are… sticking as many fingers as they can in their nostrils and hysterically laughing, running away after bath time to play naked, pulling oranments off the tree and banging them together, pushing their cars in the wall until it makes a hole, jumping off the ottoman and landing on Jason or the floor, and the WORST is still dumping food on the floor. UGH.. After all of this in a days time, MAMA is TIRED! :)

In between all the madness, they do snuggle and read a few books. :) I can’t imagine life any other way, I was truly meant to have boys. I love it.

They love to move furniture to reach light switches.

Until next time………

Family pics

We had family pictures taken recently & I told Jen (our friend photographer) that all I was hoping for was one good shot. My expectations have gone way down as we have encountered each photo shoot. HA!  It was very hard to get the boys to sit still & stay in one place. Thank goodness for the giant lollipops & for Robyn’s help of holding up props & making strange noises. :) 

Here are a few of my favorites:DSC_5115 copy

If you’re happy & you know it…

CLAP your hands! I am one happy mama! I am FINALLY caught up with the boys’ baby books. It has only taken me 20 months, LOL!  I feel a huge weight lifted off my shoulder & the next page I’ll be doing is for their 2nd birthday. I’ve enjoyed looking back at all of the memories along this journey called parenthood. :)

A Spooktacular Month!

October was such a fun-filled month with the boys! I can’t believe it came & went so quickly! The saying is so true—time flies when you’re having fun! :)

We went to several pumpkin patches ( I think 5 to be exact!), had a Halloween party at Gram’s house, went to Robyn’s Halloween party, & had a little taste of what trick or treating was all about. They are at such fun ages, it's a blast going to all these places!
