Happy Holidays!

We've had an exciting month, full of festivities here with the boys.  We've watched Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer 4,389 times.  And we've watched my favorite, Emmett Otter's Jug Band Christmas 2 times.  Mommy got the short end of the stick this year.  

We filled the house with the smells of Christmas by making applesauce cinnamon ornaments.
 Pierce really had fun with ornament making, even though he was disappointed they weren't edible.
 They did make nice little gifts for family and teachers though.
 We also made peanut butter kiss cookies and decorated sugar cookies.  Those were edible.  And Pierce had a fun time attending the Winter Wonderland festival at his school and chatting it up with Santa.  His first question being, "Is your sleigh up on the roof of the school?"  Five year olds ask tricky questions.

Cort and Reid had their own Christmas program.  During which they sang songs.  Cort got really into it.  Reid tried to run away and was chased down by a teacher.

At least they waited until after the program to pump them full of sugar.

From our family here at Two Bears Farm, wishing you and yours a very Happy Holidays!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Thought I posted on here this morning --but I was having server problems.. SO--it must not have taken....

Anyhow I said something like the fact that I love seeing your precious little boys. Having 3 boys brings back memories to me...

Isn't it amazing how different the personalities of the twins are???? My friend has twin grandsons (about the same age as yours)--and Judy (friend) is always talking about how different they are--one from another.

Merry Christmas.
Hugs,
Betsy
