Our 2012 Visit with Santa

For the third year in a row, we took a trip to Bass Pro Shop to see Santa. This year, NO line, and NO tears! We met up right after work today, and it was great. 
 A new addition this year is the Merry-go-round. You can see Daniel here on the Moose...and Will is a few back on the Deer. He would not move up to be close to us..and we were the only ones on the ride.

 But he seems to be having fun!
 Both boys always love going to the big fish tank, too. I thought this was cute...and Daniel kept kissing the glass like he was kissing that big fish...can you see him??

All Mama Wants for Christmas is a Good Picture for the Christmas Card!!!

Is that too much to ask? Come on, kids...just smile for 2 SECONDS while BOTH looking at the camera??? Really...too much??? 
 Thanks, Will...that's a good one...too bad your brother was nowhere to be found...

 Who said to dance instead of pose????
 Uh, boys....over here...
 This way...Mama just wants a smile...
 Is this really that hard???

 I give up!!!
Did we get anything that worked? I guess you'll have to wait until you see our Christmas card!!

My two sweet turkeys

My boys are so not into taking pictures these days! So, I have to pose them in front of some show, or bribe them with M&M's to even get them in a shot together. I wanted to be able to get a clear shot of their shirts, but this was the best I could do. Will has his name on his shirt as well. Aren't they cute??

Halloween 2012

It's no secret around here that Daniel has an OBSESSION with Woody from Toy Story. There was no question about who he would be for Halloween. I thought it would be cute for Will to be someone from the movie, too, and he was happy to pick Buzz Lightyear. This first picture shows them as they are getting their first look at themselves in the mirror. I think it is so cute!!!
 Will was very excited to get out and start trick or treating!
 Daniel did not want to wear his hat once we got going. He also was not wanting to participate in the trick or treating until he saw his brother got candy from people when he went up to their doors. Once he figured it out, he kept saying "I Woody, I Woody" to everyone he saw!
 Yes, M&M's were his favorite choice of the night!!!
 This is not a great picture, but I love Will's face in it...he was having so much fun!!
 Will loved ringing the doorbells, and Daniel loved hanging back waiting on his treats!
 Excited for the next house...
 The kids liked this spider...his head moved every few seconds. It had just moved and Daniel looked at me and screamed as I took the picture.
 This little guy was worn out after a little while, so we sat down while Meme and Will went to a few more houses. He decided to enjoy one of his treats.
 And here's the loot...overall the had a very fun night. Will has talked about it a lot since Wednesday. I know they both enjoyed themselves, and Brad and I loved seeing them have fun!!

Sunday afternoon fun

On Sunday afternoon, we decided it was time to carve our pumpkin. While Daddy was cleaning it and carving it, the boys painted their little pumpkins. They had a ball doing it. 
 The little one is so serious...
 So is the big one...notice how Mater is in his other hand? 
 Will's reaction to the inside of the pumpkin!
 Daniel thought the inside was funny...
 And Will suggested Daddy carve it in a spooky face like this...
Too funny!
