The end result of an awesome play date:

more snow!

Finally, we got snow! Two rounds of the white fluffy stuff & lots of fun playing in it!

We are a bit busy making snow angels, having snow ball fights & enjoying the white fluff Mother Nature dumped on us. We will be back in the new year with updates, photos and resolutions...

I always feel a ton of photos are taken, & then I look back at the pictures and realize not enough were taken. We got a ton of video from Christmas morning, but I still feel like there are so many things that could have been captured, but weren't.
Christmas eve was spent pretty low key. Baked cookies, went to church, had dessert before dinner and got the house ready for Santa & Co.  

Time to bake.

TCBY- our new date spot

Christmas was a good day. Our original plans were changed because my mom ended up being sick...so we postponed Christmas with my parents. We stayed home- in our pjs for  the day. It was a good day.

The night before...

Snow flakes left behind by Santa & Co.

Most favorite gift

The old lady

Open this one, Daddy!

sweet dreams

Andrew: "Liam, what did you dream about last night?"

Liam: " Tacos, video games & mini marshmallows."

Give them hugs. Give them kisses. Let them eat a double dessert tonight, before dinner. Let them watch two movies. Let them jump on the couch. Let them stay up past their bedtime. Let them skip their bubble. Let them turn the music up really loud, play the same song 12 times in a row and dance with them. Let them be kids because it can all be taken away so quickly without reason. Keeping CT in our thoughts & prayers.

Thumbs up for train rides, reindeer and family time.
Christmas on Main Street in Old Forge. We went with my mom & dad. Liam loved the train ride.   We all had a blast that day. I think the love and magic of the season made all of our hearts warmer. Thumbs up were given by all.

Check out who was telling Santa he would be a good boy, & listen to mom & dad...all while crossing his fingers. Busted!

tummy troubles

Day #2 of tummy troubles for Liam. It is going around school, so it was just a matter of time for his little belly to get it. Snuggles and hugs go along way until you are thrown up on.

The time is almost here! I am so happy to say that Andrew and I are 90% done with our shopping for the holidays. We managed to shop with each other and not kill each other.  I even have some gifts wrapped and ready to ship. Ahhhhh I love this feeling!
