Xmas Playdate






Last week we enjoyed a playdate with Amanda and Maximo.  Amanda and Sammy peformed Christmas songs while Magdalena danced.

Christmas Tree Hunt









Last week we enjoyed a visit to a local tree farm where we chose and cut down our Christmas tree.  The tractor ride and roasting marshmallows over the fire were a highlight for the kids.

The More the Merrier










Despite the chaos, the noise and the mess that comes with having three kids, I never get tired of watching them play together and enjoy each other's company.

Sammy's School Christmas Concert

Last night we enjoyed a Christmas concert at Sammy's school.  His class recited two poems, "Baby Jesus is Born" and "A Chubby Little Snowman" and at the end all of the children sang Feliz Navidad and Jingle Bells.

Cuddly Brother

 This is Gabriel's special bear who he sleeps with, usually brings downstairs to breakfast and hugs randomly throughout the day.



Although he's a busy toddler, Gabriel is super cuddly.

Snowy Days





I took these pictures a couple of weeks ago after our first big snowfall.  It took me about 20 minutes to get everyone's snow gear on.  This is the first year the twins will be able to enjoy playing in the snow.  Although Gabriel had a hard time walking, he did seem to enjoy it just as Sammy does.  Magdalena was far from impressed and wanted to go inside after 10 minutes.  We've had more snow since but ear infections all around have kept the kids inside.

Getting into Christmas






Athough it was a little crazy, Nanny let the kids decorate her tree.  They also enjoyed a couple of Christmas shows with Grumpy.
