Gingerbread Houses!

The kiddos decorate Gingerbread houses each year…the pre-built houses are definitely the way to go! I don’t know how you guys do it…but when we have to actually build the house ourselves…it ends up in a million pieces and the kids in tears. Good times this year and per the usual, Miles ended up licking and tasting just about every piece that ended up on his house…no joke.

Nutcracker, Concerts, Crafts, and Xmas fun…Oh my!

So much fun this past week! Love getting all this extra holiday fun time with the kids. Even with different kiddos being sick at different times…we are all still having a blast. As fidgety as Payton was during the 2 hour PNW Ballet Nutcracker, she is still talking about how much she loved it! …I may have almost fallen asleep, but it makes me happy that she had a blast. Miles had his preschool Christmas Concert…he did not seem like the biggest fan, big crowds and standing in the same place for 20 minutes…it’s not for him. Can’t believe there is only one more week until Christmas!! Time is flying!

Helloooooo December!

So far so good over here! Tree is up and decorated! Kids were so excited to help decorate it this year! Plus the kids put up their mini trees in their rooms…such a fun treat for them to sleep with them on at night.
Over the weekend we rode the Polar Express down in Elbe, WA. Our very first trip to the North Pole was pretty amazing! Cold and wet…yep. But once on the train it was literally non stop smiling going on. There were giggles, smiles, and genuine happiness. Like non stop smiling. I seriously can’t say it enough. 75 minutes of a smile never leaving Payton’s face.  Miles was a little iffy at times…people dressed up in costume always throw him off. If you are on the fence about the Polar Express, my advice is…do it! A whole train ride of singing, dancing, book reading, hot cocoa/cookies, a trip past the North Pole, and a bell from Santa. Soooo worth the drive.

Happy Thanksgiving from 2 Little Turkeys!!

Happy Thanksgiving to family and friends near and far!

Last night I tucked Miles into bed. Gave him a big hug and told him how much I was going to miss him on Thanksgiving, that Mommy will be at work helping people who don’t get to be home with their families on Thanksgiving, and how Thankful I am to have him. He paused for a second, almost started crying and said “but Mama, you won’t be with us at Gamma Pam’s tomorrow? but I miss you so much. I thankful for you too. And Payton, and Daddy……and Gacie Macie. And Georgie, and Uncle John, and Aunt Bandy, and Nana and Papa, and Gaga and Gandpa.” It’s those sweet words that makes me so very proud to have this sweet boy.
Then I gave Payton one more good night kiss and told her the same thing. She hugged me back and said “I am thankful for you too and everything you do. And everyone, all of our family, and all of our friends. I will miss you Mama.” Love this sweet girl.

Happy Thanksgiving!!
