Get comfortable…lots of pictures!
Lincoln was the first to wake up. At 6:15 I heard him open his bedroom door and run into the boys room. He climbed in bed with Ethan and I listened for a moment as they talked and cuddled. Soon, (we had to wake Daddy) we headed downstairs with three very anxious, bright-eyed, smiling boys! The stockings were opened first.
“Forget the pictures, Mom! Lets open the presents!”
Our tree-shaped cinnamon rolls were very tasty. They are a lot of work without a bread machine. Warren really likes them. The boys would probably like the Pillsbury cinnamon rolls just as much and it sure would be a lot easier! Hmmm…very tempting.
Isaac enjoyed exploring with his new binoculars. While we were testing the binoculars out, Lincoln had some plans of his own…
Caught you red-handed!
I have been wanting a new blender for some time. Now I can make smoothies again! Thanks, Hun, for listening to all of my hints.
Little Critter books for our little critter.
Three rubber band guns…what have I done? (Turns out they don’t work that well and the boys are much more interested in the Nerf guns)
Lincoln needed Daddy’s help to open his gigantic gift!
Oh how fun!
I love this picture because Lincoln looks so small. 🙂
Ethan lost his pocket knife and was very happy to get a new one!
Here’s a picture of Lincoln’s “Are you sure this isn’t real?” face. Lincoln thinks spiders are fascinating, especially if they aren’t real. So when I saw this remote-controlled tarantula I thought it would be perfect for him. He was really excited when he first saw it – we gave him the remote and he pushed the button a couple times and the spider moved and he seemed to enjoy it from a distance… that is until he approached it, squatted down, and just as he stuck out his little hand to pet it, accidentally squished the remote between his leg and belly, which pushed the “go” button. You’d have thought it bared its fangs and hissed as fast as his hand snapped back and he darted away in reverse. He hasn’t played with it since…
Wait! I need a picture!
My Willow Tree family. Perfect for our family. 🙂
Ethan and Isaac agree that their Gogo’s Crazybones was the best present! Most people have never heard of these, they are just starting to catch on in the United States.
So tired after a long (fun!) day.
Here Ethan and Isaac are playing with their Gogos. Each of these is just a hard plastic character. They can trade them and play several different games with them – it’s a little like marbles with faces and feet. They have books that rate each one for its speed, bounce and balance of all eighty different gogo characters.
