It's nice to get away for a bit (and catch up on sleep!), but I'm always happy to come home to all 3 of my boys. I left the conference early on Friday to make it home in time for Liam's Christmas pageant...that event deserves its own post, so once I upload the videos I'll be sure to get that up :)
On Saturday, we started off the day with some Christmas coloring....Liam said "Mommy, where's your phone? Let's take some selfies" Sorry, I must have missed the part where he was 13 and not 3....but I complied. Here are our selfies....at 6:45am. Real life here, people. And really dark undereye circles.
Jake had a basketball game later that morning...and the moment came that the poor kid has been waiting for for weeks now....he made a basket!!! He was so excited, fist pumping his little teammates. Some pics from that game (he's #7):
Liam will pause sometimes to cheer for Jake, but for the most part, he spends the hour and a half snacking and playing his Leap Pad (what a lifesaver that thing is!):
"So if you really love Christmas....come on and let it snow!"
You know you were singing it, too. We got about 80% of it done before having to tap out. Brian had plans to take the boys skiing on Sunday (a day to myself 10 days before Christmas?? It was like some type of holiday miracle!!) so I knew I would just finish it up then. (which I did, woohoo!)
It was super foggy and kind of drizzling all day, but they had a blast skiing:
I shared this on facebook, but it's worth sharing here, too....I made chili for dinner last night and this was Liam's reaction once he started eating:
Liam: mommy, I don't want all of these ponaenos in my chili.
Me: Do you mean tomatoes?
Liam: Yeah, that's what I said....ponaenos.
Duh, mom. :)
Only 10 more sleeps until Christmas!!!
