Christmas Catch Up and 18 weeks

Christmas was a lot of fun this year! It is every year but the boys actually got into it this year. We made Santa Gingerbread Man cookies and I think this started a yearly tradition with the boys and I. It was so much fun and I had the easiest recipe for them. The boys really got into helping me:)

Mixing the batter.

Rolling the dough.

Cutting them out.

Placing them on a baking sheet.

And of course the funnest part DECORATING them!!!

Grady ate most of his decorations.

The Perfect Gingerbread man!

I think we left Santa about 18 cookies and this is what was left!

Christmas morning the boys woke up to their Santa gifts

A tractor for Briggs

A cool trike for Grady

We had a GREAT Christmas and were given WAY too much gifts!!

I know I have skipped a couple of weeks but we have been busy! We find out on the 21 what we are having!! I really think it is another boy! We have our names picked out too! So excited!
