Christmas 2012!

The whirlwind of Christmas is now over :( Always seems to be such a fast day. Miles was up several times Christmas Eve, not because he was excited, but he wanted some to wipe his nose! He has had the sniffles, but nothing serious. Hopefully he will be over it before New Year's (and not passing it to his brother would be nice). We spent the afternoon with our "Nana" and "Poppa" Baker, it was nice not to have to cook and just enjoy the day- and that we did!

Santa 2012

Our trip to Santa was more than successful! They boys were smiling and loving it the whole time. Jumped right up and told him what they wanted, then off we went. I must give Daddy the credit on keeping Santa not scary. He works very hard to make Santa seem friendly and welcoming. We hope everyone had a great day!

Riding on the mall train...
 Wore them out! they were both asleep before we got home ....

Opryland 2012

We went to Opryland last week to take in the Christmas lights and beautiful gardens.

Loved the Delta River Tour. 

The pedal cars are nice to look at, but all of them were broken. Made me glad I had not spent $400 on one.

Several pictures before I got a half-way decent one.

Christmas mood

We are definitely in the Christmas mood! Lots of talk about Santa, doing Christmas crafts and helping out with cookies. Their energy is boundless.

They did really well making cookies, not a Kiss was eaten. Decorating cookies with our friends A and B. 

Saturdays without Mom

There are lots of Saturdays where the boys and Daddy are on their own. This particular Saturday, I was home sick in bed! There was a train show in town, so the boys got to see Thomas up close.

And cookie monster came to the library. Greg said that went over about as well as the Easter bunny.
Daddy also gets creative with his snacks. He really is a kid at heart.

Happy Turkey Day!

Well, once again, I have at least made it before Christmas day. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day! Shared it with some of our twin friends, turkey, dressing, veggies were enjoyed by all. And so much of it was burned off right away by playing.
Our morning snack-
We made Thankful trees, I was very impressed at the boys. Thankful for Mommy and Daddy, Camden or Miles, the Chirstmas tree, Eli- we have so much to be thankful for!

Too cute!

Last Saturday...

I just can't seem to keep ahead and I imagine that it won't get better with the holidays! Last Saturday we had the BGMoM's pancake breakfast. Miles and Camden sat down for about 30 seconds and ate half a pancake. Needless to say, snack that day was enormous! We are working on our table manners and getting ready to go to school. Of course, It will be a while before the boys go to school, but often when we tell them, "the teacher isn't going to let you have trucks at lunch" or "the teacher won't fix you another lunch if you don't like it." It seems to work... at least for now.

We also put up our Christmas tree last Saturday. So far, it is still standing :) We have some rules, and I can't say that they follow them to a T, but so far so good. The boys LOVE the Christmas tree. They were very into hanging the ornaments and looking at the lights.

Let the holidays begin!

Dinosaur world 2

These photos are from a couple of weeks ago when we voyaged out to Dinosaur world again. It was a great trip. They were into naming the dinosaurs and it is fun to hear them say "Tyrannosaurus Rex" in little kid talk. We are in the midst of sometimes napping and sometimes not and I'm afraid Camden had a huge meltdown that lasted the whole way home. At least it was only 20 minutes (felt longer than that).
