The lighting in the auditorium is horrible, so this is the best I got of him up on the stage.
Looking back in the baby books, it was at 16 months that Little Man started being a terror. Big man was a little later than that-he didn't have any examples. Little Princess is not quite 15 months and I have a feeling I'm in for it. During a 'quiet' moment yesterday, she learned how to twist my lipstick up and decided to redecorate my room. This is just one stop on her trail of destruction. It continued on my dresser, nightstand, and in my closet. Where was I during all of this fun. Well, doing mom stuff of course. Vacuuming, cleaning, etc. I can't follow her around all the time. I guess I should though, or at least close a few doors. Thank goodness for good cleaners that make fun times like these bearable.
If it were possible, I wouldn't go anywhere the week before Christmas. The last place on earth I wanted to be was Costco. I got there early because I thought they had Christmas hours, so we sat in the car for a while before it opened. As they opened the doors, there were probably 100 people waiting to get in. It was pure madness. I'm glad I'm home now watching the snow fall.

Our last day in Phoenix we asked the boys if they'd rather go home or go to....DISNEYLAND. They hadn't known beforehand that we were going. They were pretty excited. These pictures are in no particular order. We spent two days at Disneyland and California Adventures. The first day it sprinkled on and off during the day-nothing bad. The second day was rain most of the day-sometimes pretty hard. We made the most of it though and still had a blast.
You'll notice that Little Princess is not in any of the pictures. That's because she did not come with us. Grandma and Grandpa Snell were nice enough to keep her for the whole week. She would've been miserable with all of the driving. She doesn't handle long car rides well.

Here's the boys room.
And the good news-I have a toy room again :) I am so excited. I didn't realize how much stuff the boys have until we put it into one room. It's pretty full.

Can I just say I have the cutest kids. Sure they're naughty and make me pull my hair out most days, but when I see pictures like this my heart melts.

This is the outside of the building. She has a great view. It's a bottom, corner location.
This is outside her kitchen window.
This is the main family room. I'm not quite sure if they sponged this wall, or what happened. It was quite interesting. It's now a nice taupe color as well.
My other mess maker. Little man loves to help while I'm baking. I was making pumpkin cookies and I'm not quite sure what happened, but he somehow fell into the batter. What a helper.

Here's the devil herself. She went all out on the party. We played a lot of Halloween games. Everything on the menu was orange or black. She'd gone to a lot of work. Thanks mom :)
Christopher and Becky (and my cute penguin)
The cutest grandkids on the planet :) I think kids make holidays so much more fun. It's fun to watch their excitement. I just wish I could borrow some of their energy.
The first game was a fishing pond. All of the grandkids got a goody bag full of prizes. The favorite toy of the night was the little squishy skeletons that stuck to the ceiling. The kids had fun with those quite a while.
The second game was sucking the ghosts with a straw and carrying them across the room. It was fun to watch the little people try to do it.
Little Princess would not be left out of anything. She may be little, but she's determined. Especially with a doting cousin and grandpa :)

The boys on their horse ride.
Little Princess thought she was hot stuff. She loved riding on the pony. It was really cute.
The kids thought the witches were great. We had a fun time.
