2014 christmas highlights

Happy 2015 everyone! I hope you had an amazing holiday season. Bobby got everything prepared for Santa’s arrival Christmas eve by saying goodbye to Elfie and putting out goodies for Santa and his Reindeer. Christmas morning the kids opened presents from Santa and my side of the family at home, Bobby was super excited for the stuffies from Grandma and Grandpa, and his new transformers from Santa. Cordelia loved everything – especially the wrapping paper.

After that, we headed over to my in-laws for brunch and more gift opening, followed by family time and a delicious turkey dinner. Boxing day the big guy came down with the flu, and then I did – so the rest of the holidays have pretty much been spent in our pajamas, but after a really hectic month, it’s been nice just hanging out at home.

The last picture is Bobby when he was 11 months, and Cordelia at 15 months – both on xmas day playing with the same can… and they both played with it for longer than any other toy that day!

What were your highlights this holiday season? Did you get spoiled? What did Santa leave under the tree for you?

weekly highlights

12 days until Christmas! December has gone by so quick, anyone else freaking out and totally not ready? This week our big highlight was going to my MIL’s kids Christmas party. There was a big buffet breakfast, a magician, a balloon artist, and of course Santa himself. I was worried that Cordelia would cry, but she was perfectly fine! Bobby of course had a blast, and they both enjoyed ripping open their first present of the season.

2014 halloween highlights

Happy Friday everyone! I wanted to share our pictures from Halloween last week 🙂 Bobby picked out patterns to carve our pumpkins and even helped clean it out. Last year when he put his hand in the pumpkin he almost got sick – this year he was a champ! Then Bobby and Daddy got dressed up as Iron Man and Iron Patriot and headed out for some trick-or-treating fun.

Cordelia and I stayed home to hand out treats to almost 70 kids, pretty good turnout! I brought the 80s back, and Cordelia was Rapunzel – unfortunately I haven’t been able to get a decent picture of her in her costume, she is not a fan (I think the fabric is a little scratchy), but I did manage to get a shot of her sitting in Bobby’s chair, which she figured out how to do this week and is now her new favorite place to be.
