2011 is here!

Wow, here is is a brand new year! The last few months have been a whirlwind. Once the holidays start at the end of October the time just goes too fast. We had a Great Thanksgiving which included a visit from a fantastic Petting Zoo.

As for holiday activities the boys, Ryan and I enjoyed a couple different Breakfast with Santa, we had so much fun at these. One was at the Boys preschool and we got to see Buck's teacher and some friends, we played reindeer games, made snow flakes and got to see Santa - which Theodore was not really into - at all. The other Breakfast was really great and was at a local church, several of our friends were there. My favorite part of this one was they had a Santa shop just for the kids - no grown ups allowed. We bought tickets for the boys and they went in with an "elf" and got to buy presents for Ryan and I. Believe it or not Ryan and I waited until Chirstmas to open our gifts, Buck got ryan a handy dandy flashlight, and Theodore Picked out a beautiful brown beaded bracelet for me - my favorite gift of the season!

Another big event in December - Theodore's Second Birthday!! Wow - I just could not get over that he was already two. We had a great time eating hot dogs and had a Dinosaur cake - ROAR. He was a very happy birthday boy, but I am still not ready for my baby to grow up!

Christmas was amazing, we got the boys a battery powered John Deere gator and it has been a big hit. The boys were spoiled rotten this year and I loved every minute of it.

Now back to work and school, I hope that I will do better keeping up the blog in 2011!

Pumpkin Patch

We had a big weekend. On Saturday we went to the Cedar Hill Farm's Pumpkin patch with Buck's Friend Charlie and could not have had more fun. There were Pony rides (Theodore's Favorite)Pig races, a chicken show, a petting zoo (Theodore got his hand bitten by a donkey) a "train" ride, and a hay ride to a field of Pumpkins (Bucks fave). There were lots of other activities too that we passed on like a corn maze - no i would have seriously lost the kids for good. And the best part Funnel cake for Momma - loved every bite!

On Sunday we had our annual Pumpking Carving get together and it was awesome. No one carved this year - the kids painted and stickered their pumpkins. It worked out great and no sharp objects were running around the backyard.

This week Buck has a trip to the pumpkin patch with his Preschool Class and then 1 costume party and a birthday party on Saturday. Next week will be filled with Parents Day out and Preschool halloween parties, a fall carnival and trick or treats- whew - it is going to be busy. I never broke out my camera for the pumpkin party but did get some good pics at the Pumpkin patch!

Fall Fun

We have been GO GO GO these last few months. We went to the Beach, the school schedule has hit its groove and the fall parties have begun.

The boys have been having a great time - the weather has been nicer and we have been able to play more outside.

We have a busy schedule coming up with Pumpkin patches, parties and halloween so I hope to be uploading some great pics soon!

School Days

Its Back to Preschool for the boys! This year Theodore will be at the same school as Buck. They were so excited to meet their new teachers and I was excited that Buck was successfully Potty trained by the schools deadline. How I did this was cruel and bitter - I would drive him by the school and not let him go in until he stopped wearing diapers. He loves school so much it worked! Now on to Hi T, he wants to potty so bad, i just need to find the time.

They love their classes and are having fun painting, going on "bear hunts', going to spanish and music and even Yoga! Yes - Buck's class does Yoga one a week - I love it! The boys are growing up so fast - enjoy these shots of them on their first few days of school.

It's June?!?!?!

Wow, I cannot believe my last post was in April and now it is June! Time is going by so fast. We are having a good time and staying VERY busy. We lost our camera for a few weeks but it surfaced in one of our many Diaper bags - hooray! In the last two months we have been staying outside as much as we can, as well as going to the farmers markets, musuems, ice cream "stations" etc. We also had a great visit with family over memorial day weekend. These boys have the summer bug and are go go go. Here are some random pics from the last few weeks.

Spring Fever

Its has been like summer here already and the boys have Spring Fever! We have been eating
Popsicles and gardening at home. The boys have really had a fun time with that, even if HI T looks maniacal with a grape Popsicle. Buck has been a real big helper with his dada, following him everywhere and pitching in on yardwork. His new found love is worm hunting, he is very good at it and torments me with the wiggly ones.

This Weekend we spent Sunday at the Farm to see The Pennel's, Cousin Kate and the New House. We had so much fun! Theodore explored every nook and cranny while Buck and Kate went fishing. We had a pre lunch gator ride that everyone love, Buck loves to "farm the gator" (drive the gator). We got some great pics.

Gator Ride was a Hit!

Backyard fun!

Popsicles are our favorite treat
