White Christmas

Lost a mitten and had to improvise with a Zutano bootie. Resourceful, no?

Snow on Christmas in Charlotte in 60 years - it's a big deal. Kelan made a 6 inch Frosty the Snowman -- he was so very sad when he melted later that day (another big deal...).

Kelan is giving Santa the run-down of his wishes: Polar Express Train, Polar Express Train (not a repeat-- a reiteration) and the Polar Express Diorama. He got a bit flustered and forgot to mention the trestles, tunnels and bridges he wanted but thank goodness they are on his "Wish List" that's already headed to the North Pole.

Riley will sit anywhere except Santa's lap. Within seconds, she was trying to wriggle free. Perhaps he'll surprise her with a chair...

ALL Boy...

Whether it be a tree, fence, kitchen pantry, refrigerator, bookcase, stair railing or dining room table it will not go unclimbed, by this little guy, for long.

HaPpY Halloween

We kicked off the weekend with a Trunk or Treat at Kelan's school

followed by our highly anticipated neighborhood hayride while trick or treating. We wrapped the evening up with fun, food and a fire pit for roasting marshmallows at the end of our cul-de-sac. It was our *best* Halloween yet!!

Trash Day

To say Kelan is obsessed with large machinery is an understatement. Every, and I mean EVERY, airplane, helicopter, school bus, cement truck, garbage truck, construction vehicle or piece of equipment he spots is immediately announced with great enthusiasm.

On this particular day instead of watching from the front door window, Thomas set up front row seats to watch the trash pick up. It was a very special day indeed. Thanks, Dad.

Best Friends

Otis will actually watch "Milo and Otis" with Kelan. Said dog is truly our little man's best friend...

New venue

As I turned the corner of the kitchen island, I came upon this scene - Kelan setting up for nap time under the runner in front of the kitchen sink. The funniest thing is he was REALLY trying to get comfortable there because he put "silky and yellow" down by his feet. Carried around by day, on feet when he sleeps... this is a nap and bedtime law.

Family Playtime

Unless it's raining, every night of the week we go to our local school playground. It's the best time of our day - I wouldn't know what to do without it...

Happiness in a cone

See's candies are my ultimate favorite chocolates - nothing, I repeat, NOTHING compares (sorry Godiva) -- and Kelan agrees. We've had these Molasses Chips in the fridge since Thanksgiving and every time we open it he blurts "chok-it, pees, Mommy, peeeees!!!" Despite his emphatic requests, I've resisted often enough for them to last till now. However, with his new found strength he can open the fridge, and this was his first must-have item...
