Welcome back, Henry!

Our elf, Henry, arrived December 1st.
The boys were so excited! 

Jacob asked why Henry had a tag on his leg.
Doh!
 
So not sure how much longer he'll be a believer. 

Henry brought them the movie Polar Express.



A local baker made a batch of cute Elf cookies, and I snatched two. 

The boys loved them!
 
Like I said, Jacob has asked a few questions about Henry and Santa. 
So next year I may only be doing this for Levi.
IF (and big if) Jacob can keep a secret. :)

November Recap


Since I failed to blog once in November, here is a quick recap:
 
Took the boys to Toyland on our town's Square.  They had lots of fun!


Someone had to potty.  Can you guess who?  :)





We went and had lots of fun at Caleb's 7th birthday party.


Levi had his first dentist appointment.
And yes, I realize it's a tad late!  He did so good!

 So very thankful for these two.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
 
My birthday happened to fall on it this year.
My life is so much better with them in it!
 
Hello December!

Happy Halloween!

Jacob got to wear his costume to school on Halloween.
He was so excited! 
 
Later, Levi and I attended Jacob's class Halloween party.
Levi was super excited, can you tell? 

They each made a cute pumpkin made out of a roll of toilet paper.

Afterwards, we went over to Beth's neighborhood for another Halloween Party, then to trick or treat.
Kris had to work, boo! 

My two super heroes!

 
 I scoured Pinterest and made a graveyard dirt cake.  So yummy!
I bought edible markers and drew pics on Milano cookies.
 
I hope they remember the fun years of trick or treating together.
 
 
It was the coldest Halloween I can remember.
Normally it's a nice fall evening. 
This year we had to break out the hats and gloves!
Which I thought almost made Jacob look like a bank robber :)
 
 They had a blast running from house to house, and I loved hearing their little giggles.
Them using manners and saying Happy Halloween made my momma heart proud. 
 
 Can he be cuter?  Uh... no! :)

Day Out with Thomas

We had a couple of hours before our ride on the train.
We drove over to a nearby town to see Pops.
It's known for a huge replica of a soda pop.
 
Finally it was time to see Thomas!
 
 
 
Jacob holding my hand... I melt!
 
 
 
Then they got to meet Sir Topham Hatt.
Usually Levi is afraid of gigantic characters like this.
But he walked up to him and gave him a high five.
 
 
 
 
Time to ride the train!
 

 
 
 
Jacob also got to be in a magic show!
 
He loved it!
 
It was a great day!

Weekend Getaway

Friday Jacob skipped school, and we drove to Oklahoma City.
We bought tickets to ride Thomas the Train on Saturday.
Levi is obsessed with Thomas, as was Jacob at this age.
And ironically, Jacob still plays with his trains so I figured we better go now before he gets any older.  :)
 
So we made a little weekend getaway out of it.
Friday we went to the Science Museum.
The kids LOVED it!!
 

They got to do so many fun things!




I'm a nerd, I made Jacob wear his planet shirt :)


 
Jacob got to ride a Segway, he loved it!
 
Up next... Thomas. :)
