Merry (very late) Christmas

(I have had trouble uploading pics to the blog, which is why this is so late.)

Christmas this year was amazing! Experiencing the excitement through the eye's of Rocco and Taegan is something that is hard to describe. Also adding to the excitement was a white Christmas!

We started Christmas with a visit to my mom's on Christmas Eve. We had some yummy tamales, watched a movie, and opened our stockings.


Christmas Eve- ready to head to grandma's house!

Stockings!

Christmas morning was the best! The boys were very spoiled and loved everything. They were a little disappointed when Ray or I would open a present. They would say "That's not a toy!" They just don't understand that mommy gets just as excited over new shoes and purses as they do about toys :)

Taegan Christmas morning

Rocco Christmas morning

Their action figures were a hit!

Cooking mommy a yummy meal :)
A white Christmas!

Yay for snow!


It looks like one is screaming, but I promise they were super excited!


Finally getting to ride their new bikes the day after Christmas! While they were excited for the snow, it is no fun to get a new bike and being told you can't ride it.

Winter Wonderland

I will forever have this song ingrained in my head. This house has heard it over and over again. The boy's teacher said the song for their performance would be a big secret..... well it wasn't much of a secret.

 The boy's gave us a little preview of what we had to look forward to.

Here is their actual performance. (Not the best video, the local high school filmed the performace but we won't have the copy for a few more weeks so my shaky video will have to do!) Taegan is in the top left and Rocco and in the top right. Their teacher knew better than to put them together. We might have had a reenactment of their summer performance/ wrestling match.

If you made it through the video you might have heard a child singing very loudly (yelling).... that would be Taegan.

They were so cute up there and very proud of themselves.

Love them
