The Many Faces of Seth and Luke

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope everyones holiday went well. We had such a nice time staying in Rigby for Thanksgiving this year with Brad's family. I am so thankful for all that I have. My sweet husband, my two amazing little boys, and wonderful family and friends. All three of my boys are so sweet and I love them all! Here's all three of them playing in Seth's bed.

I got a little excited about the holidays today after going shopping, and decided to come home and put up our Christmas decorations. Seth was my big helper today. He loved decorating the front room, but his favorite part was the Christmas tree. He loved hanging the decorations, especially the Santa Claus one. He has been taking the Santa decoration off and putting it back up all night, and he'll walk around saying, "ho ho ho merry christmas." (it's sooooo cute!) I think Luke has an ear infection, so he didn't have quite as much fun, but he loves the lights. Here is Seth being my Christmas helper.

I'm so excited for this Christmas! It's so fun to see Seth understanding everything more and getting excited for the Christmas tree and all the decorations. I can't wait to see how excited he'll be when he opens his presents on Christmas morning! It's taking all my self control not to buy anymore toys for the boys (because they're just so dang fun to buy for!)

Since it's been so cold lately, we've been staying indoors a little more. Here's one of Seth's favorite things to do when we're stuck inside. This is Seth showing off all his masks. He is such a character! He loves to be a "guy" almost every day. Here he is as the Flash, Batman, and Nacho Libre. What a poser!

Luke has also been showing off for us lately. He has been pulling the funniest faces. My favorite is when he scrunches up his nose. He's also learned a few new tricks this past week. He can clap, wave, and stand up while holding on to things. (He's had a few bonks from the latter, but he's getting better at landing on his bum instead of his face). Here are a few cute faces that I've caught.

A Boy Story

Wow! What a weekend! We started off our festivities on Thursday by dressing up and going to Melaluca to trick or treat. I guess they put on a big trick or treating bash in there office every year ( it's supposed to be for the employees and their families, but way more people go than that). They did a great job! Every cubicle was decorated and they had themes for each department, and it must be manditory for the employees to dress up, because everyone was decked out for their area. Some were really fun like the Peter Pan one, but some (like the Star Wars one) were a little too scary for Seth. I pretty much carried Seth while I pushed Luke in the stroller, but it was pretty fun. We went with some of our friends and got a ton of candy. It was way fun to see all the kids we play with in their costumes.

On Halloween we got all dressed up around 3:00. Seth was Buzz Lightyear, and Luke was Woody. They turned out pretty cute, but I only had room on my camera for two pictures, and we took them after they went trick or treating, so they were pretty tired. Anyways, we went to see Grandma Lee Ann at the bank, and then went to our cousins house to see their costumes. After a quick visit with the fam we tried to make it to the trunk or treat, but we were too late. So we started trick or treating early with our neighbor (Grandma Wood). It was the perfect night for trick or treating, it was so warm that I just brought a blanket along in the stroller, and we were able to go around most of our subdivion. Seth picked up on the whole "trick or treat" thing pretty quick, and he thought it was great that everybody was giving him treats. We cut through one of our friends yard when it started getting dark, because we already had a ton of candy, and Luke fell asleep. When we got home we took off one more time to go trick or treating at Grandma Lee Ann's house. When we finally came home we all crashed. What a fun Halloween!!!
