Christmas in SC

We spent the weekend before Christmas in SC with my family. We had a wonderful time with my parents, sister and grandparents. They of course spoiled the boys and it was the beginning of their sugar high. Yep, I am a bit late in getting this posted but at least it is before Valentines Day:) Watching Mickey Mouse Saturday morning while the rest of us were making sure everything was just right.

They were VERY excited about the train set and table that Mi Mi and Papa gave them. I love the expression on Peyton's face. "A train, a choo choo...be careful, be careful" Peyton kept exclaiming over and over again. Christmas time is so much fun with kids.

The boys had a great time delivering all the gifts to everyone. Here they are with Papa.

Of course they enjoyed opening their own gifts...and everyone else's too!

The boys loved their remote control trucks from Luke! Parker learning to drive...lets hope things improve over the next 14 years!

The boys love floor puzzles! We found this alphabet choo choo puzzle and they were thrilled. OK, not so much about daddy's letter and sound lesson but they loved the long train it made.

Even a present for the baby girl!

The boys eating Mi Mi's chocolate cake.

Not much has changed over the past 28 years... My Mr. Potato Head on the left from when I was 2 and the boys new one on the right.

Maybe we've got Tiger goalies in our future!

The boys love the soccer balls and goal aunt Mel gave them. Look at that leg on Parker!

The boys were so busy on "Christmas" Day that we saved their stockings for the next day. For good reason too...more candy! Parker enjoying two flavors of his suckers.

Making music with their new instruments. So much fun to see them playing music...the harmonicas are fun but I could do with out the flute thingy... much to loud and off pitch:) Hopefully they will take after their Uncle Greg and not their mother when it comes to music skills.

Hi! You don't really know me, but I had to stop in and leave a comment about how CUTE I think your boys are ( I'm Rebecca's sister-in-law, by the way)! I have been reading your blog for several months, and find tons of comedic relief in seeing the latest things that Peyton and Parker are up to. Life with TWO boys must be so much FUN!!! Thanks for sharing all of their antics!
