Christmas this year was amazing. The boys were so into all the presents. In fact we actually got them WAY too many things. The boys told me that it would take an entire year to unwrap everything. We had to almost yell at them to focus and finish unwrapping. At one point I unwrapped a few of the boys things. Anthony *might* have unwrapped a few of Nathan’s things. The girls were also pretty into it. They didn’t really understand how to unwrap the presents but they enjoyed ripping the paper. It was so nice having Steve’s mom and dad around to help out with the kids. Unfortunately Paty was not here though! She spent Christmas day with her cousin in New York City but we got to celebrate when she got home.
I had the boys write some letters to Santa. Super cute. “I was 100 good”.
This year was so much fun going trick or treating with the boys. Anthony sprinted as fast as I’ve ever seen anyone run between houses. Nathan was slow and steady making sure to inspect the candy bowls of all the houses and pick out the one he wanted at each. Our friends, the Myers, came over beforehand for pizza and then we were off. We had a blast!
Halloween was so much fun this year. The boys were very into it. I already posted about Weber Cider Mill Farm and our search for the perfect pumpkins. Later that afternoon Ann carved the pumpkins with the boys… well Nathan. Anthony was fast asleep. Nathan was very interested.
Ann and Steve carved some creative pumpkins.
And Nathan even helped me saw off the top:
Even Gracie enjoyed eating the insides of the pumpkin and hanging out inside pumpkins.
A couple glasses of wine and it only made sense to give Nathan a mohawk
Which was super cute with this Alligator costume (he reused it from last year)
The boys did amazing trick-or-treating. I thought it’d be one or two houses max, but the boys walked to every single house on our street. They even started says “treat” and holding out their bags. Anthony was adorable in the monkey suit and so proud of his candy loot.
Hope you all had a safe and happy Halloween.
