But we did have SOME fun today! We took the car into the dealership and the kids got to run around in the lobby (yes, this was fun to them) Then we went to Walmart and they looked at all the Christmas decorations and even watched the rollercoaster game go up and down (TONS OF FUN). Boston went back to school and we greated with a very loud group of friends with "BOSTON'S HERE!!!!" He's a popular little boy. Then as we were playing in the front yard after school our neighbors, the Stitlers, came by and we joined them at the neighborhood playground, where lots of fun was to be had. Here's to a fun day tomorrow!!

"Wow, they are so colorful!"
When I went to the garage to find the star to put on top Boston was so excited. He said, "Thank you so much for finding our star mommy! It's just so beautiful." And it makes all the disobeying of the entire day just melt away....that's what it's all about. Sean had a horrible headache and feel asleep on the couch in the middle of all of it
Notice how all of the ornaments are hanging near the bottom....in the morning it probably won't be that way anymore. (Perfectionist in me)
I also brought out a few other Christmas items along with The Boys Christmas Box (I put all their christmas toys, books and nativity set in here.) The hit was the Fisher Price nativity set, which we bought last year but they never really fully understood. Boston was really into it this year. I read him the story and he acted it out with all the characters. It was so much fun to watch him get it and understand. As he was unpacking it he yelled to me, "Look mommy, it's baby Jesus!" Some other hit items were gifts from Aunt Margie. Of course she always knows the perfect gifts to send the boys. They were especially intreged with last years toy Santa the moves and tells "The Night Before Christmas" story. It's about 10 minutes long and they would sit there, in a trance, watching Santa tell them the story. Dallas even stayed longer and gave Santa a hug and kiss for the story.
My freshman year in college my roommate Michelle and I bought some Christmas crafts to do to decorate our tree. I still had one kit left over that we never used and Boston found it. It was a kit to make these ornaments you had in the window as sun catchers. He had a great time painting them today.

Afterward we decided to take it easy and have family movie night. I had picked up Ratatoulle at the store. What a great movie! This was our first time watching it and we all enjoyed it. I think it might just be my favorite cartoon movie so far. Great!
Thanks again girls for a great time!

Eating the sour candy Gabi and Tico brought for the boys. He just adores the both of them!
Boston made the place cards for everyone, with the help of mommy of course. They are hand print turkeys.
My three sons! Aren't they cute all dressed for Thanksgiving. Happy 1st Thanksgiving little Asher!
Boy does he LOVE his little brother, and boy does he love his big brother!
We had Thanksgiving lunch at Sean's parents, including his Grandma Blanche and his brother Chad and his wife Lauren. The boys loved playing with all the toys and in this pic they are watching the newly released movie Ratatouille (they had never seen it so they were very much into it). Lunch was great. Dallas still wasn't feeling so great so he layed on the couch. Poor thing, it's horrible when you feel bad during the holidays.

Sean's Aunt Karen made Asher this beautiful and cute quilt. What a nice gift! The fact that someone would spend so much time to make something so beautiful means so much. Thank you so much Aunt Karen for putting so much love into this. I know Asher will cherish it forever.

In on the action in our backyard
Tonight the Garcia Family came over for pizza and fun. First we all went out in the backyard to run around and the kids had a blast. Boy did they all have a lot of energy! We have really been enjoying our backyard so much for the past week (I think mainly since it's not so HOT). We usually always play in the front yard, but now that our pond has dried up there's even more room to run. It's at least as big as a football field out there! The boys have started riding their trikes down the hill in our yard and this is a great deal of fun that they introduced to Israel, Amaya and Jonah. I myself remember sleding down the hill in my backyard growing up. Guess this will be our Florida version of sleding! And it was funny how all the boys fought over who got to play with the PINK ball while the only girl, Amaya, played with a truck in the sand! I know the boys really enjoyed playing with them and look forward having them come play again soon. And of course mommy and daddy enjoyed the company of some fun adults like Juan and Rebecca. And it was cute to watch little Asher interact with their little Lucas. It will be fun to watch them play once Asher is crawling as well. Thanks again for joining us tonight and for the awesome Brownie Mountain guys!!!
