Easter & Tulips 2017

Easter & Tulips 2017

We took the kiddos to see the tulip garden yesterday (20162015, 2014) and got some good pictures of everyone.  The girls weren’t in a very good mood but we still managed to snag a couple.

Christmas 2016

Christmas 2016

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”.

Halloween 2016

Halloween 2016

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!

May your days be merry and bright

After some bribing I was able to get the boys to pose for some Christmas photos in some tangled Christmas lights.

Halloween 2014

Halloween 2014

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.

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.
