Christmas Cookies

I had such big plans for Christmas activities this year.  Of course they didn't get done.  I mentioned before that I was making all of the cousins' Christmas presents.  Well, that took A LOT of time.  

I did get a chance to make 1 type of Christmas cookies with the boys.  



We got the boys some new shirts and the boys wouldn't let me take the sticker tag off the front.  They wanted to wear the sticker.  So annoying haha.





We never did get around to decorating them... or eating them haha.  I am hoping to decorate a few every once in a while... starting soon!

Decorating the Christmas Tree

The boys had so much fun decorating the Christmas tree this year.  L was napping but M, G & Daddy worked hard.


When they weren't wrestling.  :)






Who are we kidding!  I joined in with the wrestling too.

















The boys were proud of themselves :)

We only took out the 3 packages of plastic ornaments that we have for them to hang.  There were maybe a total of 15 balls that they got to put up.

Of course I had a lot more work to do when they were sleeping... well I actually didn't get to it for a few days.  BUT it did get decorated before Christmas :)

Countdown to Christmas Photo Challenge - Day 4


Day 4


A few years ago I got a Mr. and Mrs. Snowman.  Honestly I can't remember if it was a gift or if I bought it for myself after Christmas one year.  The two snowmen are attached and sing a little song while doing a little dance.

Last year M & G decided that the snowmen were theirs.  I don't blame them.  They are a blast.  I remember last year the boys pushing the button to play the snowmen and they would just watch them.

This year they are still enjoying the snowmen.  Only now they sing and dance along.  Normally they don't do any dancing, but their cars do.  They take a 'special' car and make it dance while singing along with the snowmen.  Sometimes they will dance.  Other times they run around in circles while singing along.  They really are quite funny!

L loves any and ALL things that big brothers like.  Of course big brothers don't let him touch their toys.  I was touched that the Bigs actually allowed Little to watch the snowmen with them.


I can't believe Christmas is so close.  I still have SO much to get done.  Don't think I'm going to be making my deadline ...

Countdown Christmas Photo Challenge - Day 3


Getting ready for out trip to visit Santa. 


As always M & G did a great job.  They LOVED Santa since their first Christmas.  Christmas number 3 they are loving him even more.  L did awesome too.  He was in awe.  Santa and L took a couple of minutes and just gazed into each others eyes.  I really wanted to pick the picture where they were gazing but Hubs said he liked the one where he could see L's face... so of course I picked that one.  We also got a picture of all three boys together.  I hate how you can't take your own pictures when you visit a mall Santa.  I mean, I get it and all, but the pictures they print you are such garbage... over $20.00 for two pictures that are printed out looking worse than when I print from my crumby printer at home.

ANYWAY....

When M & G sat on Santa's lap he asked them what they wanted for Christmas.  They both looked over toward the fireplace and said THAT!  There were two presents wrapped.  The boys tried to take them home.  It was quite comical.
