 Merry Christmas!!
This year we slept in till about 7:30am,  fed Nathan a bottle and then started to open presents.  The boys got just about everything on their Christmas lists.  We were lucky enough to have Keith home for Christmas morning this year. After we opened all our presents from Santa, set everything up and played with everything, we headed to Grandma and Poppa's house to have Christmas dinner and open more presents with our cousins.  We got more fun toys and had lots of fun playing with our cousin and seeing the babies!

Christmas Eve

 This year for Christmas Eve we went to Grandma and Poppa's house for an early dinner and a visit from Santa.  It was a little quieter than normal, just us and the Bitter's were there this year. 
 Nathan eagerly awaiting Santa's arrival
 When Santa came in the room Tommy covered his face with his hands so he wouldn't see him then needed to be held.  When he was being held he held his face in fear of Santa!!  He really likes to see him from a distance or on tv.  Maybe next year we will like him a little better.

 Although he did willingly go to Santa when he found out that there was a present for him!!
 Nathan wasn't to sure about Santa either.  He had to hold on tight to Grandma
 But, they all LOVED their candy canes!

Happy Christmas Eve!!

We decorated cookies last night for Santa.  Tommy is really into Santa also known as HoHo this year.  He was determined to make the best cookies for Santa so that he will leave him every present he wants! 

 David, announced last night that he knows that there isn't a Santa, that it is just his parents.  But after being warned that he does have younger brothers and cousins that believe in Santa and if he ruins it for them that he will NEVER EVER again get anything for Christmas, decided to join in Tommy's excitement about making perfect Santa cookies.

 The boys, Tommy especially had a little to much fun with the sprinkles.  We went through 5 brand new sprinkle containers on 4 dozen cookies!

 We went to Disneyland last week for a few days and had a blast!  We went Tues-Thurs so it wasn't very crowded and we were able to go on everything we wanted.  Tommy was really excited to see Mater and Lightning!  Unfortunately he was 1/2 inch (according to Disney's height sticks) to go on the fun rides, so definitely by our next trip he will be tall enough!  David had a blast going on Screamin' and Space Mountain and Nathan and Tommy both loved Winnie the Pooh and Small World.

11 months!

Nay-Nay is 11 months old!!  
It is so hard to believe in just a few weeks he will be a year old. He is such a fun little boy and we are so happy to have him in our family. 

 He loves to steal Tommy's cup and drink it... chocolate milk is one of his favorites too!
 He has recently discovered that he LOVES oreos, especially the chocolate cookie part which works out good, cause Tommy eats the cream and gives Nathan the cookie :) 

He loves to follow David around the house and just sit by him.  He is into everything, but we are loving it!  Nathan now has 6 teeth, 4 on the bottom and 2 on top.  He is regularly drinking from sippy cups, just getting a bottle at bedtime (most days).  He will walk holding hands, or with a walker but prefers to crawl...he is so much faster to chase his brothers that way!! He is getting really good at words too, saying da-da, mom, do-do , uh-oh, no, ba-ba, and David's favorite that he has worked long and hard with Nathan to say... d.
