very merry

Our Christmas was definitely MERRY! We were all very spoiled. But most of all, we got to hang out with all of our families at some point during the week. Here are some highlights from yesterday:

Uncle Jason is the Transformer expert, so he and Ben spent some quality time together figuring out this new Optimus Prime!
Andy and PawPaw had lots of fun building puzzles!
These boys are amazing artists!
This was first thing in the morning...scoping out the loot!

And here is Mika B...maybe she'll be a teacher when she grows up!

Merry Christmas!!!

better than the zoo

Yesterday, the boys and I went to Cabela's for a few last minute gifts. We were there for an hour and half! The boys love to go there and I love to take them. It's better than the zoo for many reasons, but here are my top three:
-it smells better than the zoo
-it's free!
-it's five minutes from our house

Tonight, Ben was having MUCHO trouble listening and obeying his parents! After several warnings from Kevin and me to pick up the toys in his room, I went in and gave him a little smack on the booty to get him moving. He told me, "You're mean, momma!" I said, "You are making very bad choices." He said, "You're torrible!!!"

I had to walk out because I was cracking up.

I told Kevin I wasn't sure if he meant horrible or terrible, but Kevin said he probably meant both.

My dad and I took the boys to Casa Manana to see Rudolph yesterday. This was my boys' first experience with live theater...unless you count High School Musical on Ice???
Anyway, I wish you could take pictures inside because the looks on those sweet faces when they saw Santa and Frosty and Rudolph...Precious! They were so good and had such a great time. Andy looked through the playbill and decided that he wanted to see just about everything listed. Especially CATS, because that is his favorite animal. (That is an exact quote!) He told Kevin tonight that he got to see the REAL Rudolph. He was also quite impressed that the REAL Santa was there to be in the show. :)
It is so much fun to watch them grow up and take in new things and try to process it all. They amaze me with the things they know.
