Christmas was a blast! We didn't even feel the need to take our tree down that night. The boys got tons of presents! This year they had a blast opening presents.
The day before Christmas eve and Christmas eve, we went to my parents house. The boys got to play with their new cousin, Luke. He is a year and half and such a cutie! The boys loved playing with him, they played with the trains. Later on, their older cousin Aidan joined them for a game of catch me. It was wild and fun to watch!!!
My parents got the boys remote control trains, car and train mats. My sister's family got them spiderman DVDs, which we had to hide because we would have had to put it on. My brother's family got them a stuffed dog and vet, as well as a vtech counting board. The boys made out!!
Christmas morning started off with Jacob walking to the tree and presents, pointing, saying "ho" and walking to the couch. I took a shower and in that time he found his new tricycle and was ready to open presents. The next task was to wake up Jasper.
After Jasper got up, they opened presents. They had so much fun this year. Jasper loved his tricycle too! Joy got them a ton of Spiderman stuff, which they loved.
We took the boys downstairs with the tricycles and Jasper walked over to the old tricycles for us to move out of the way of the new cycles.
In the afternoon, we went to Joy's mom's house. The boys got a train set and leap pads, as well as stuffed minions. Jacob had some great independent play with the trains and Jasper played with Joy's brother.

This week we took the boys to see Santa for the first time. We prepared them by teaching them to say "ho ho Ho". We went during the week, so there was no one there. The boys walked right up to Santa, pulled candy canes off the trees and tried to feed them to Santa. They sat really good on his lap and we got a picture. Afterwards, they gave Santa high fives.

The boys have been choo choo bye bye deprived this week. So today we took them to the Lodi train station to ride on the train. They had a Christmas express train. We went one it and the boys got to meet Santa again after the train ride.

They were good during the train ride and for the beginning part of Santa's story. Then they got wild. They ran around a lot. They finally got up to meet Santa again. They sat on his lap with Mrs. Claus. We got a few pictures but only on the phone.

Choo choo bye bye

Last weekend, it was warm enough to be outside. It was awesome! One the way to the park, we heard a train. So went near the tracks, however it never came. We walked to the library and the playground there. We played there until we heard another train, then I put them into their wagon and ran. We got there and no train!!!

We waited again for awhile for a train to come but never did. Every time a car drove by, Jacob poked and said "mean mean mean" because it was not a train.

We ended up going back to the park. I got so mad because of people dropping off their kids at the park and not watching them. There was a little girl about 4 or 5 with her brothers around age of 8-10. The little girl had to pee and was asking me. All I could do was tell her to tell her brothers. I can't take her to the bathroom. Eventually, they took her... Behind some bushes.

Anyway... The boys talking much more. I think reading green eggs and ham to them really helped. They are starting to really memorize it.

Last Thursday, we took them to see the polar express. They have a train ride here that is set up like polar express and a whole area set up like the north pole. We went there and waited for the train to show. The boys were so do excited to go "choo choo bye bye." It was really neat. People were dressed up. Boys loved waving at the frosty guy.

When the train showed up though, Jasper got a little scared. He covered his eyes. Nothing scares our boys much, which kinda scares me. But the train kinda looked like it was coming at us in the dark.

It was pretty cold but totally worth! Eventually, we gonna take them on the train.

Last night while I put the boys to bed, Joy made the boys a ginger bread house. I helped a little bit decorating with m&ms. The boys absolutely loved it this morning. Jacob saw it on the fridge first. He pointed at it. We got Joy and let them have it. They mostly ate the m&ms. We got video and pictures.
