A Busy December

We have had quite the busy December. It is busy for everyone, and we feel blessed that we get to enjoy so many holiday festivities together. Here are some pictures from our month. Merry Christmas to all!
Bobby came back!

First flakes of snow!

A cup of hot chocolate after snow and before basketball.

Cousin John came to visit!  We made gingerbread men!

Santa and Mrs. Claus visited the library.

I want a batman batcave toy Santa!


Mommy bought her boys new ornaments- the Griswold moose mug for Daddy, Batman for Nate, and Star Wars for Nick.

I sat back and let them go this year!

The cheeks still hang low :)

Working together!

Bobby brought special treats from Santa for St. Nicholas Day.

In our shoes!

Our beautiful view.

Nick posing for a pass!

Lighting the Advent wreath during Nick's first penance.

Nick's first penance was beautiful.  He received many love letters of congratulation wishes.

Cookies galore in this house!


Nick loving the jam filled butter cookies.  He was a big help.

A meticulous cookie maker!

Two of my favorite boys!

Nick was invited to a gingerbread house party at his new friend's house!  It was fun!

Working hard!

Santa at the Breakers

It has been a long time since a blog post. With Facebook, I feel like once I upload pictures there, most people have seen them. I forget that this blog is how we document our lives, so I have to do my best to keep it up! Santa made an appearance at the Breakers mansion in Newport recently. The boys looked adorable in their Christmas attire and told Santa everything they wanted. It will be the one time they meet Santa in a mansion!

Our little furry wookie!

Year after year, nothing changes.  They hate getting their hands dirty!

I prefer just to look :)

Finished projects- the kids draw their own faces for Matt to carve

Providence Zoo

We seem to love zoos everywhere we move, so we became members of the Providence Zoo and went two times in the past month. Come visit and see for yourself!




Nate.... he belongs in a zoo!  They have a great water play area and both boys love it!

Running through the sprinkles!

Nick enjoying the water tubes and figuring out how to connect them.  

Tire swing!


The second time we visited with our friends, we got to see the elephants get a bath!

They have lived at the zoo for over 20 years.  Look at he lies down for his bath!

Our new buddies- Allison, Matthew, and Katelynn

These guys all belong in the zoo!
