Time to relax

We had a great holiday and now it is time to relax. Here are a few random pictures of the boys!

Christmas Day!

We spent Christmas day at my parent's house. Of course there was never a dull moment...the kids (including Tony) were loving the gifts! We had a great time!!!!

Christmas Morning

We spent Christmas morning at home. It was great. The kids were so excited!!! It is so nice to live so close to family that we can spend time at home also during this crazy time!

Christmas Eve

We had a great Christmas Eve at the Hamilton house. The kids did really well and loved opening presents...

Cookie time!

I had a cookie baking day with the boys and let them decorate their cookies. I think Luke had a dab of frosting on his cookies and ate the rest of his frosting. It was fun! We also made a gingerbread house for the first time. Once again, I think Luke AND Connor were more interested in eating the frosting. While all of this was going on, Anna and Andy were reading Anna's favorite story for the hundredth time. I think Andy truly loves reading to the kids. I know the kids love it!

Santa...Or Not!

We got to go see Santa at my mom's office. It was a great Santa, but the Hamilton children were not too interested. Andy had the boys make lists because he knew they would probably not sit on his lap. This was a great idea because we could at least get a picture of them handing the letter to Santa. Well, that worked for Luke, but I think Connor moved at lightning speed to hand him the letter and get away! So, we have no pics of Connor, but enjoy these!!!

The First Snow

Okay I know that it has been a LONG time since we have updated, but I had to share this story. We all know that we have had tons of snow since the first snow, but I had to share these pictures. One day we had a dusting of snow, and Andy decided to help the boys make a snowman. It was the talk of the town (because there really was not enough snow for a snowman). I think he used every bit of snow in the yard (and maybe the neighbor's yard). I had a student ask me on Monday if Andy went around the whole town collecting snow to make his snowman. Here are some pics for you to enjoy...
