Hi! I'm Olaf and I like warm hugs!

It snowed quite a bit on us for a few days, and we finally got to go and build a snowman. The boys named him Olaf. We had recently gone and seen the Disney movie Frozen in theaters, and we love it! Olaf is a snowman character from the movie, and he likes warm hugs. Tunes was having a sale on the soundtrack and we listen to it frequently and randomly break into song. The boys favorite is "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?"

Police Officers and T-Rexes

For Halloween, we went to visit Mommy's parents in Nevada. They moved there towards the beginning of the year. Daddy was going to be in the area for a week of work at different customer sites, and Thing 1 was on his off track, so we went to visit.

Thing 1 decided that he wanted to be Lego City's Chase McCain, and I knew what we needed to do for his costume, but I couldn't find what I needed and didn't have time to figure out how to make it, so I bought something and added a badge. The costume was similar enough, that Thing 1 didn't even mind. He just really wanted to make sure he was a police officer.

Thing 2 told me he wanted to be a dinosaur, and I knew exactly how I was going to make his costumer, it turned out so stinkin' cute! The only problem was that Thing 2 wasn't all that fond of it. He eventually got to the point where he was okay with it, and kind of got into the roaring, but it was for bribery purposes.


Thing 1 was attempting to show Thing 2 how to roar at the camera, and he was an awesome instructor.


Thing 2 was having to adapt to an extra limb, and wanted to see it for himself. When he did it, it turned out adorable!


"Hmmm, should I attack Mommy now? Or wait until after we go trick or treating?"



Uh oh, you can tell what that cute little dinosaur is thinking...


ROAR! Get the police officer!



Mr. GQ here, he's certainly comfortable in front of the camera. My tough police officer.



And of course, I had to end with a happy police officer, because that's what he is the most.

Things birthdays!

We VERY recently celebrated the Things birthdays and we had an awesome day celebrating the two together. We went to the pool, playground, out to lunch, and had their favorite Super Duper Macaroni Cheese that Daddy makes. I forget to take the camera to the playground or pool, but I'm kind of glad that I did because I wouldn't have played with them so much. We're hoping to go back to the pool shortly so that we can catch Thing 1 swimming on video. We're very pleased that he figured out how to swim underwater on his own! Thing 2 also figured how to swim with his life jacket on without Mommy or Daddy. It's so fun to watch him. It's really funny to watch when he decides he is done swimming on his stomach and just rolls onto his back and floats. He's so chill and relaxed! Depending on when we get back to the pool, I'm hoping to share pictures soon!

Here are pictures from them opening presents and blowing out candles on their birthday cake.



 They love their soft Angry Birds hooded blankets.
And below is Adam opening his much desired Cowboy boots. He's been wanting these for a very long time.






The joy of a boy, his Angry Bird blanket and his Cowboy boots.


The Things again agreed on a birthday cake theme. I hope that they do that for the next few years to make things easier, but if not, I'll make something work. I want to keep them happy. So here is their Lego cake. I wanted to do fondant, but with our recent move and unpacking still, I didn't have time.


I was so excited to have found Lego candles on clearance! Bonus!







Happy birthday my handsome not so little Things! Mommy and Daddy love you very much!!!!!

We have Superheroes in the house!

My little guys love to grab their old Halloween costumes from their costume case and play. I love it too and one day Thing 1 put on his cape and mask and Thing 2 was determined to be dressed the same while trying to steal big brother's cape. Thankfully we had a second cape, although not nearly as bright, it still did the trick. 

Momentarily, Thing 1 is Thing 2's sidekick to help him get dressed. 
 

My two little superheroes! They ran around for quite sometime with their capes and masks on. You can't see it very well, but in the background there are a lot of blankets, chairs, and a pop-up tent. They had built their fort where they would jump out and catch the bad guys.


I think the next day they decided to cuddle with their teddy bears as well as each other in the big bean bag. They giggled for the longest time, pretend to be asleep and snore and then "wake up" yelling and laughing all the while. It's times like this that being a Mommy is fun.
