The Boys Get Their Christmas Stockings!

Stockings have always been my favorite part of Christmas (that and Dad's homemade moosemilk). Everyone in our family has a BEAUTIFUL stocking made by my Grandma. Now that Grandma and Grandpa winter in Phoenix I was a little worried that the boys would not have one for their first Christmas....but Grandma came through and made each of the boys such a special Christmas stocking! Here they are...

Lucas and GG-ma and GG-pa with his stocking.Nathan and GG-ma and GG-pa with his stocking.

Matthew and GG-ma and GG-pa with his stocking.

Here is a close-up of the boys stockings...I never could have guessed last year when I was hanging our two stockings that I would have five to hang this year!!!

Bower Mall here we come...

Today Mom and I decided to load up all three boys and venture to Bower Mall. We were a little nervous but hoping for a successfull trip.We loaded up in the parking lot...Matty in the Moby and the other two boys in their carseats attached to a stroller...luckily we had a nice day since it took awhile to get everyone where they needed to be!

The next time we had a chance to take a picture we were at home! Here is Mom cheering for the successfull shopping trip...

and here is Nathan cheering!

The boys all had a bath after their long (1hour) day at the mall...we are going to have to work up that time! GAK came over to help out with bathtime and she gave each boy a baby massage when they were done which they LOVED!

Here is little Nate watching the Oilers beat the Blue Jackets. This is exactly how John lays on the couch when he is watching the game...Nathan must have been watching!

And finally all three boys pooped out from their busy day and ready for bed!

These are just a few other pictures from the last couple days that I just HAD to post...
Matty chillin on the lily pad.

Thanksgiving - Take Two

The boys got to celebrate their first thanksgiving with two family gatherings and two turkeys...too bad all they got was formula! On Sunday we went over to Gramps and Nana Alexander's house but unfortunately we forgot the camera. On Monday we packed up and went over to GG-ma and GG-pa Braham's house and we did remember the camera...here are some pictures.
Here is John watching over his boys at GG-ma/pa's house. The boys love their carseats so much that they slept in them for over 2 hours after we got there!
Still sleeping.

We were all loading up on Turkey and the boys were still sleeping...

Finally they wake-up!
Anybody who know John knows that after any meal he pops up and starts cleaning...G-ma was trying to stop him...but was unsuccessfull!

Little Lucas all snuggled up in his hoodie ready to go home

Matthew in his hoodie

And little Nate in his!

I just had to take this picture of the three of them...first time in hoodies and jeans!

We thought that we better pose the boys with a pumpkin seeing as it was thanksgiving and all...we had them posed perfectly and right as the camera click Matthew started to fall over. We took about 50 pictures and sadly to say these two were the best! We might end up doing another pumpkin photo session before fall is over. I love how Nathan looks like he is doing the hula in the first one!
