We are gearing up for Christmas around here and life just feels good. The boys are at an awesome age, they are so much fun and seem to be either making us laugh out loud or driving us insane, only moments apart.
It seems all the sudden they are so crafty. I gave them a pack of paper, scissors and a couple glue sticks and they kept themselves busy for about an hour. The things they made were -interesting- to say the least, but they were so proud of their creations.
For Christmas at school, they decorated cookies and then did a cookie exchange. So we came home with THREE plates of sugary cookies, topped with gummy bears, m&m's and lots of sprinkles. Even though I tore them away from the cookies after about 3 or 4 each, the boys were on a crazy sugar high for about an hour after eating them.
And even though the sugar high is seriously insane to watch them go through, we love it. It is funny to hear them laugh at anything that has been said or done. They will just run into the couch head first, throwing their legs up in the air and laugh straight from their little bellies.
They are the best of friends. Monkey see, monkey do X's 3. They are our little monkeys, and we couldn't be happier with them.
