Christmas 2016

What a magical and very Merry Christmas we had this year with our sweet boys!! Noah was SO EXCITED for Santa this year and had so much fun spreading kindness and holiday cheer all season long with our Kind Elf. From Santa, Noah got a bmx bike with pedals and no training wheels and a toolbox filled with real tools and a leather tool belt (all items that he asked Santa for). From Mommy and Daddy, he got snow bibs and a BIG teddy bear that he named "Joon". Joon is already apart of our family!:) Finn got a wooden stacker and a small green Waldorf baby doll from Santa and a woodlands sweater from Mommy and Daddy. They also got some new art supplies and mountain essentials in their stockings. GMommy and GDaddy arrived on Christmas afternoon for the night, and the boys got to have their second opening of gifts which was so exciting!! Then, Oma and Opa arrived the day after Christmas, and the boys got to have their third opening of gifts. Such happy little boys!! All in all, we had such a magical Christmas and Noah is quite the natural on his new bike! He took right to it! Enjoy the photos and videos.

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah and a Happy New Year!!

Kind Elf

Our Kind Elf returned again this year to be with the boys for the holiday season on December 1st to help spread kindness to others and holiday cheer. And what fun we are all having! Noah is so into it this year and is so excited to find him each morning and see what his note says for our daily fun! Little Finn is having fun tagging along too. ;) Here are some of the ways we are spreading kindness and holiday cheer so far.

More Kind Elf fun to come!:)

Celebrating Finley

We had such a beautiful day celebrating our precious Finley turning ONE! The entire day was focused on him, and he had so much fun! He had all of his favorite foods: breakfast-our homemade pancakes and breakfast sausage, lunch-roasted sweet potatoes, dinner-spaghetti. I made him pumpkin muffins with a dollop of homemade frosting on top for his birthday sweet treat. It was so fun watching him enjoy it! We opened presents, played at the park, and enjoyed spending the day with both sets of grandparents at our house. It was such a special day! Enjoy the photos from his special day!
