A Visit with Santa

We took the boys to see Santa at Yankee Candle.  Nathaniel was not happy at first, but warmed up to Santa.  Adam was unsure, but he smiled.  Ryan told Santa everything he wanted and also told Santa what to bring his brothers.

Thanksgiving Fun

The boys had tons of fun at Aunt Pat's house on Thanksgiving.  They went out in the dark to hunt for glow sticks and did a scavenger hunt.  Finally they roasted marshmallows by the fire and made s'mores.  

Big Babies

Nathaniel and Adam rediscovered their bouncy seats and thought it would be fun to play.  They are a lot bigger than the last time they sat in them.

No Paci...No Problem

If Nathaniel can't find his pacifier, he improvises with a puzzle.

Adam and Nathaniel have decided they want to help unload groceries.  They take things out of bags and help Daddy put them in the refrigerator.  Sometimes they fight over the same item and sometimes they find something they want and try to run away with it.  In reality, it makes putting groceries away take a little longer, but what cute helpers.

Happy Halloween

This year we had our own version of the Village People trick or treating.  Ryan, the pirate, Adam, the cowboy and Nathaniel, the ninja, all set out on a drizzly evening to scare up some treats.  The cowboy and the ninja called it an early night, but the pirate did an extra street and filled his pumpkin to the brim.  The pirate also started the day participating in a Halloween parade at school.

Pumpkin Patch

Mommy and Daddy took the boys to Belvedere Plantation on Saturday for pumpkin patch fun.  They each rode on the zip line and played in the little corral.  They met goats and took a ride to the pumpkin patch to pick out a pumpkin.  Despite the rain coming, we all had a fun time.

Wordless Wednesday

An Impossible Picture

The most impossible thing to do is try to get a picture of all four kids.  Here is the result.


If Adam and Nathaniel know you have food, they are right in your face trying to get a bite.  Peapooh fell victim to losing part of his snack when they both waddled over for a bite.

Pile On Daddy

This is what it looks like when three boys pile on Daddy.  Daddy's face says it all.

Lights On Lights Off

Nathaniel has found that he loves to turn the lights on and off.  If we let him he would do it for an hour.

First Day of Preschool

Ryan started preschool at Mount Vernon Presbyterian Church Preschool, going four days a week.  So far he is having lots of fun.  His assigned shape is the crescent; that is what he sits on each day and his name is written on a crescent as well.  His first job that he was assigned was the weather man.  He put up the days weather.  His responsibilities will change throughout the school year.

Breakfast At Mammy's

Breakfast at Mammy's house is usually on the porch.  Adam enjoyed cinnamon toast in the car in front of cartoons and then joined Nathaniel at the big boy table.
