Merry Christmas!

Christmas card picture.

Christmas morning...still dark outside!

Santa got Logan the Wii...I think it helped that I really wanted one also. Now I just have to get Mario cart!

Playing Super Smash Bros.

Me and Kelly. We had Christmas dinner at the Smith's house.

Naughty or Nice?

The boys were so exited to visit Santa this year! I love this age when they really believe in the "magic" of Christmas. Although Logan is starting to question a few things. When we were in line he said, "Mom I think this Santa looks different than the Santa from last year." How can he remember that far back? He was right though...and I have to say I liked the Santa from last year better! :) He's careful not to question too much though, because you can tell he really wants to believe! I have a feeling this might be our last Christmas playing "Santa" with Logan. Hopefully he'll enjoy playing along with his younger siblings next year! :)

Carson was a little intimidated at first, but as soon as Logan went up he followed. Santa spent a few minutes chatting with them which I thought was nice.

I'm going to miss this part as they get older!

Logan is turning 6!!

We had an early birthday party for Logan on Saturday. The kids all had a blast eating pizza and ice cream cake and then topping that with some bowling and playing arcade games. I was surprised at the bowling skills of the kids (some of them didn't even need the bumpers!) Thanks again to all of Logan's friends that were able to come and celebrate his special day!

I had to get a picture of the ridiculously large bowling pin cup Logan got!

Getting ready for some yummy ice cream cake!

Present time...thanks for the great gifts everyone!

Future North Branch, MN bowling league! :)

Look at that form! haha

This is Carson's happy dance which he would only do if he knocked at least 4 pins down!

Hmmm...too many games to choose from!

The perfect tree!

Every year we get our tree at a Christmas tree farm that's across the street from our neighborhood. Weston and I love the convenient location and the boys love the candy canes and hot apple cider! O.K. I lied...I go for the candy canes too! :) I'm so glad we finally got some snow this last week. It's just not as fun hunting for a tree in the dirt!

What do those elves do all day?

Every year the Macy's in downtown Minneapolis creates a holiday display on their 8th floor. This year the theme was "A Day in the Life of an Elf." It was great! The boys had so much fun and it really gets everyone in the holiday spirit. Our friends Molly, Quinn, and baby Georgia joined us this year. We got to see Santa's Toy Workshop, The Sweet's Shop, The North Pole-Stall Office, The Christmas Tree Forest, and the Elves' tiny little bunk beds! Thanks again Molly for coming with us!

The bump as arrived!

Here I am at just about 3 1/2 months. I don't remember my belly sticking out this far quite so early with the boys. Does that mean it's a girl or just a sign that it's my 3rd and my body just knows exactly what to do? I have to say I really do enjoy this stage of pregnancy. I'm past the nausea and fatigue and I no longer look like I'm carrying around a spare tire around my middle...I actually have a little bump! If only it could stay this way...I know I'll be looking like the good year blimp soon enough!:)

A visit from the tooth fairy

Last night the boys were playing with their Star Wars laptop computer and of course a fight soon broke out. Carson felt like it was his turn and tried to grab the light saber wand out of Logan's hand and ended up "accidentally" (I think?) whacking Logan right in the mouth! Didn't their mother teach them to share for crying out loud?! Well the force of the hit was enough to knock out Logan's front tooth! This tooth was already slightly loose, but no where near ready enough to come out on it's own! Are these the kind of fights I have to look forward to as they get older? I can't tell you how many bones were broken in Weston's house growing up with 6 brothers! To give the story a happy ending, Logan woke up with 5 gold dollar coins under his pillow. The tooth fairy felt he deserved a little extra since the tooth was lost in such a violent manner! :)
