Wow! Week 50! I am always surprised when we make it this far. This week is a long post with 39 images. We did a lot of Christmas-y stuff which is always a bit chaotic but fun. Only one more week of school!
Here’s our week . . .
Its never too early start the nativity. I love the felt play one we have.
This kid and his sweet and silly personality.
Silas took these of Jonas and I not getting along (this is very normal).
Finally stopped fighting me.
Jonas has a picky palate – frozen (yes, frozen) peas, tater tots, green olives, and turkey.
Our tree is very simple this year. Its a mix of Mark dead set on not getting a tree because of the mess and Jonas’ busy hands. So we have our fake 4 ft tree on a small end table. I guess it works for this year. All the decorations on the tree are items that Jonas can break and or put in his mouth.
We took the kids to see Santa at Bass Pro’s free Santaland. The boys love it.
The boys don’t look thrilled about riding the carousel. Brooks is just about the age where he is over it.
Watching the fish.
Making a gingerbread house with a ninja, a freshly bathed toddler (he was covered in yogurt), and Silas.
Cutting marshmallows with Silas. He is always right there with me while I cook.
Sometimes my house is clean and cozy and it makes me want to curl up on the couch with a book but then I remember I have an 18 month old.
These two are nothing but chaos when they are waiting on the bus.
The best spaghetti sauce is made with tomatoes, onions, and butter.
Having fun with lunch.
Silas really can’t leave him alone.
He really wants to be helpful even when I change diapers.
For some reason I couldn’t move these photos up with the others. A good picture of both boys smiling.
They were sad when we had to leave.
Falafel tastes amazing with hummus, avocado, goat cheese, arugula, and pickled onions.
See you next week!
