Aunt Sara, Uncle Andrew, Knox, Banks, and Cash gave the boys each a Scooter for their birthday/christmas. The boys LOVE them. They aren’t so in love with the helmets I make them wear but they love the scooters.
I love how Nathan has to scoot with his blankie.
Loving our hotwheels Christmas present!
Thank you Grandma and Grandpa DeLuca!
Perhaps the coolest Christmas present of all times. Steve is already an expert drone pilot.
Today was my first full day of work using my sit to stand desk. I did pretty good, probably stood for 4 hours+. I definitely felt more energized and it was fun moving between my two computers super quick. Loving it!
Another Kickstarter success. Worth the wait… http://standdesk.co/ #AskMeAgainInAMonth
One of my favorite Kickstarter backed projects so far were these little silicon connector pieces that you can connect wooden dowels to. The boys are still a bit young for them but they are a lot of fun. Anthony puts them together and builds with them but gets frustrated when he can’t pull them a part. Nathan collects the blue connectors and gets frustrated if Anthony tries to use the blue ones. Can you guess Nate’s favorite color?
They are a fun toy! The company that created them got acquired by FatBrainToys. So you can purchase them from their website: https://www.fatbraintoys.com/toy_companies/fat_brain_toy_co/joinks.cfm $44.95 for a set of 76 pieces. We got three sets as part of the Kickstarter.
Yes, I did spend over $30 on two containers of Sand. But it’s the most amazing thing ever. I was Black Friday shopping and got sucked into Brookstone (why not?) and had to play with this sand stuff they were demoing. It is amazing. They claim its 98% sand 2% polymer and it feels so amazing to play with. I highly recommend getting it if you’re looking for a Christmas gift for someone. Nathan and Anthony love it. It’s recommended for kids 5+ but the boys seem to do already playing with it.
I just launched my Kickstarter campaign!!
The boys have inspired me to write a kids book. They’re going to learn to count to ten in binary and be nerdy, just like their mother.
The boys each have their very own Rody blow up cow toys, the Howdy.
Lately when I put them on their Howdys they will bounce up and down. Eventually, not knowing how to get off, they will lean forward and fall. Which inevitably ends in tears.
…I’m sure their cow tipping skills will improve. Especially given their mommy was born and raised in Montana! Steve doesn’t like when they fall off and will boot the cows or threaten that we’re going to have beef for dinner.
We got the boys a tunnel and a circus tent from Ikea last weekend. You should’ve heard the giggles from them when they figured out how to go through the tunnel to get their daddy waiting in the tent.
