Trio of Terror.... Not really.

Love our awesome neighbors and specifically that Preston, Graham and Liam are all best buddies!  Warms my heart!  This was after our soccer game (hence the orange jersey)...

One on One - Graham

 
We took Graham out for his one on one with mommy and daddy and went to Grapevine Mills to Build a Bear for our friend Samantha.... we thought he would love it!  Well, he carried his own panda in... could have cared less about building a bear... then when he did, he picked a camo green one and selected a pink shirt. He also got his panda a batman outfit).... Fail #1
Putting the heart in
Then we thought we would go to the rainforest café after for dinner.... we got up to the hostess and Graham said "I don't like this, I want to gooooo".... fail #2
So we ended up at the new breadwinners in Trophy Club by our house, thinking he would love... well, he loved the cookie... then wanted my phone to play on during dinner..... fail #3!
 
We agreed, next time...... we buy the kid a cookie and stay home!

Toy playtime

After the thrill of opening presents passed... it was time to play!
making a volcano!
overall fun!
It was a wonderful Christmas!  The boys were so into it!  But now Graham keeps asking where "his" Elfie is..... sorry buddy.... we have to wait another year! Merry Christmas!

Christmas Morning!

It's so funny.... by keeping the kids up so late on Christmas eve.... we actually woke them up at 7:00a for Christmas morning!  It worked out because we were able to see their faces when they came out of their rooms to see what had come with Santa!  When I woke Graham up... he ran to the window.... and said "but where is Christmas, where is the snow"..... he thought Santa meant snow... poor guy..... I think he got over it though...

Merry Christmas!

 Merry Christmas from us to you!

Christmas Eve

Christmas eve was an action packed day!  We started the morning with Jump for Fun as they opened up for the day for free play and we figured it would be a good way to expend some energy!  We took Liam with us and let the boys run a muck for an hour of so!
After nap time we went to Christmas eve mass at 4pm.... no pictures.  The kids did ok, but the church was SUPER warm and the kids got antsy towards the end!
After mass, we were invited to "ugly sweater Christmas eve party" next door at the Strawn/Vergara house!  So much fun! We are beyond lucky to know to have such amazing neighbors!
These guys....
We wandered home about 10:30pm... (beyond late for our kids)..... put them to bed... then Santa came for a visit!

During the holidays this year, Jason and I want to take each kid out individually to have some one on one time with mommy and daddy.  We decided to take Preston to ChuckECheese.  We have not been with him and thought it would be perfect!  OMG, he LOVED it!  And still talks about it!  So glad we did this!  Graham will be next....
"This is my game".... about Soccer game
Smiles!
And ice cream.... of course!
