Lucas decided he was going to take a few pictures of some of his favorite friends at Christmastime. These are some of his best and most prized snapshots. As I am blogging about these little treasures he popped up over my shoulder and pronounced, "I love those photos I took! Aren't they wonderful? The first one is during the middle of the day and the last one is me pretending it is night time." I love that little guy!
Here is the night time picture. I love how he made a tee pee with the pillows to make it appear darker for the photo!
We moved the playroom table into the kitchen. I am so happy that they all wanted to make cookies! They still want to make cookies at Christmas and even though the kitchen is a mess I love every minute of it and happily clean it all up when they are through. And yes, Hunter was wearing a button up shirt for the occasion.
You can see how the kitchen looks. It may have stayed like this for days. We made several batches of cookies and they were all delicious. This year my favorites were the Gingerbread cookies and the gingerbread men.
The whole family made the trip the fancy theater at the Pinnacle to watch the newest Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens. Gaga and Papa had never seen ANY Star Wars movies and they loved it!
We did this on a whim. The weather over the holidays was terrible. It was wet and rainy the whole time. I had heard that the escape game in Bristol was a lot of fun so I booked us a ticket and off we went to escape. Poor David had to work that evening so we took the earliest game time of the day. Despite having his big brain abilities with us we were unable to successfully escape the game! We were an epic FAIL. Who cares tho, this was so much fun and engaging and I would love for us all to go back and try again.
A Christmas tradition. Each year the kids receive a letter from Santa letting them know if they made the nice or naughty list. Every year Lucas is a little worried about his outcome. He is a great kid with one of the biggest hearts I know. He can be frustrating on so many levels but truly at the end of the day he is an awesome kid and should never worry about being on the naughty list. And, guess what? They were ALL on the NICE list. We are some very, very lucky adults.
Another tradition is that we decorate the golf cart with Christmas lights and garland for the holidays. We ride around at night and look at the lights in the neighborhood thought the holiday season. This year the boys said they wanted to decorate the cart. They worked for over an hour and then came and got me saying they were done and wanted me to come and look. This is what I found! They decorated the entire cart with their nerf guns and the front of the cart was loaded with the bullets! I loved it! We left them hanging for one trip around the neighborhood and I apologize for any stray bullets you may find in your yard! I love having boys!
