Fun with the new camera

Fun with the new camera

I got my new Nikon D750 camera so I went a little overboard with the photos today.  The boys didn’t seem to mind.  There was some complaining from Steve but he will get over it.  Check out these happy boys.

Sand

Sand

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.

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.

The boys got their first laptop at Costco last weekend.  Steve’s friend Dom had one for his daughter so we thought the boys were definitely old enough for this 3+ year old toy.  Basically it sings the ABCs and they can press different buttons for it to do different things.  It’s not even a QWERTY keyboard though.  I’m pretty sure the boys are smart enough to realize it’s just a toy and not the real thing like mommy’s.

Like his mommy, Anthony did NOT want to share his laptop.  Especially with someone who wants to bend back the screen and put their slobbery fingers all over it!

…the boys have really started to enjoy playing together.  My favorite thing to watch is when they share a pacifier.  Anthony will have one in his mouth and Nathan will reach for it, take it out of Anthony’s mouth, and put it in his own.  Then Anthony will take it back again.
