Gobble Gobble

I've decided I love long weekends again. Ben has been super busy and stressed out with school. I've been going crazy with kids... they all got toddler beds and since they are new- sleeptime is a nightmare. For Thanksgiving we headed up to Uncle John and Aunt Linda to have lunch with that whole McDowell gang. They are a blast to be around and I am glad they don't mind inviting us to their activities, otherwise we would have to tag along...It had been awhile since we took a picture with the whole family... and then the cute boys. I hate the glare glasses give off, but they are getting used to them and wearing them most of the day. I'm hoping their eyes will correct quickly so they won't have to be stuck in them for life. We'll see.
Then Friday we went to Bass Pro shop to go meet Santa, but instead just walked around and looked at all the animals. Then Saturday we took the kids bowling for their first time. It was awesome. They took turns, picked a ball and would carry it to the ramp and cheer it on. They lasted great until the 8th frame... which was about dinner time. I was impressed how well they did and so glad they love it!

That concludes our awesome weekend. Now we'll see what the next week shall bring..

It snowed!! And so we play..

It was a little chilly in the shade, but we bundled up and made due! The kids had a blast- would have rather ridden their trikes in everyone's yard rather than on the sidewalk. The boys are laughing hysterically here. It is fun when they think the other is hilarious.. not soo much when it goes in a different direction.

Carter really was having fun...

We've got Glasses!! Well, the boys do anyway. The new fight with them is trying to convince them they want to wear their gafas. I'm hoping over time they will realize the gafas help... hopefully. I was told how they check kids eyes when they can't read and was very impressed. I just wonder how accurate it really is. Either way, here they are testing them out and fixing their trucks batteries at the same time.
