I love Christmas...

Here are some fun photos of my kids on Christmas morning. They had a blast opening presents. We didn't tell the oldest that it was Christmas until that morning. I think this is the last year we'll be able to get away with that. It was also his birthday, so he had lots of fun.
It was nonstop play ALL DAY LONG. We didn't even attempt to put him down for a nap.
Little man's newest achievement is climbing all over EVERYTHING. He especially likes to climb and stand on the kitchen table.
It was a great Christmas and holiday season. We feel very blessed to have two cute boys, a wonderful home, friends and family that we love, and so much more.

It sounded like a good idea at the time...

Who doesn't like pinata fun? Unless you've been hit in the eye with the bat (like I was years and years ago) or unless you're a big Thomas the Train fan. My youngest had no problem taking a few whacks at Thomas. That may be because he loves using a bat and will hit anything he can.
The oldest was another story. He was very concerned that first of all we were hitting Thomas and second of all we were hitting at all. It was all very confusing for him. He didn't hit it very hard and that was only after a lot of coaxing from dad. The only highlight was the candy that came out at the end.

It has begun...

There's a terror that begins around 16 months old. I had somehow blocked it from my mind after experiencing it with big man. Those memories have come pouring back after seeing the havoc little man has created. Instead of getting mad, I decided to take some pictures. If only he knew the clean up song...

December Fun

Here are some fun photos of our December activities. It's been a busy month so far and it's only 2/3 of the way over.

We rode trax down to temple square with the cousins. Big man had a blast. He was wild and crazy all night long. This photo is in front of the reflection pool.

They all had fun posing for photos.

Big man was more interested in the candy cane than Santa himself. Little man was not happy about being on his lap.

After 20 (or more) takes and several bribes, this was the best I could get of the boys. It turned out pretty cute. Every time I'd get little man posed and get the camera in place, he was up and running. It was an exhausting process.

The best is yet to come with Christmas parties and presents. After that I'm looking forward to some quiet time. I love this time of year, but it also can get a little crazy.
