Some Pictures from Christmas

Hello everyone! We are still here - just busy as usual. I took the day off today (Phillip and I went to a concert last night) and decided to spend some of the boys' naptime blogging. I feel really bad that there are no pictures up since Halloween, but the wait is over :).

We had a really good Christmas this year. The boys are now old enough to know a little bit about what is going on. They know who Santa is and that he brings presents - and that he also might come back and take them away if they aren't good - I hate to threaten them, but it actually does work sometimes :). They had a blast opening presents.

The BIG (in size) present this year was a Castle Jumper. The boys have SOOO much energy these days that we wanted a way for them to be able to get it out. The jumper is like a mini trampoline that you blow up. We didn't realize how big it was going to be until we set it up. As you will see, it took up a lot of space. It has since come down and last year's slide has come back inside to get that energy out. However, the Castle will definitely be fun outside!

The BIG (in meaning) present for the boys this year was the "bunny suit." Here is a little background: Before the boys were born I went to the Mothers of Multiples Sale and there were 2 Ty Beanie Baby bears wearing pajamas with a hood and ears - like a bunny. Carson took up with these "bunny bears" very quickly and wouldn't go anywhere without one. When he was old enough to figure it out, he started taking the suits off and just carrying them around - the "bunny suit." Well, as luck would have it, we lost not only one of the suits, but both of them (one in the Mall and one at Wal-Mart). He was sad about this, but we figured he would get over it and decided to hold off getting him a new one. Well, months later he would still mention the bunny suit - he wasn't upset - he just wanted it back. So, we told him that Santa would try to find one. Hayden decided he wanted one too. Through a lot of searching and some interesting turns of events, we ended up with 2 bunny suits to give them for Christmas. Below are videos of them opening the suits. Just to warn you, the second one is pretty long because I started taping Carson again. They were so excited!

Here are a few more pictures from Christmas.

They went from being scared of the vacuum cleaner to wanting to play with it ALL of the time. So....we got them their own. They LOVE to vacuum. If only they were real.... :)

Gran & Pops bought the boys new rain coats, which they loved. They also got snow suits from Goodmommy and Gooddaddy, again, a hit.

The boys really enjoyed this Christmas - and we enjoyed sharing it with them. We look forward to many more to come with them!
