Starting 2014 off right!

New Year Eve Party...Little men partied until 10...
Mommy and Daddy made it up a little longer 

Fresh Haircuts for all...

A brotherly love kind of dinner in the playroom.

Orange picking with Daddy!


Here we are in January,
just now getting a Christmas Post.

A few thoughts on Christmas this year...

-These boys are SO loved.  Enjoyed being with family, just wish we all lived closer
-  Christmas is always more fun with little ones, can't replace the magic of Santa!
-Flying with an 18 month old is NUTS.
-I don't like the cold, like not at all.  Christmas in Florida anyone?
-We tried to Celebrate a few weeks early to avoid travel with all the toys, 
I think this took away a little of the Christmas morning excitement. 
Lesson learned. 

We are thinking that we'll keep Christmas close to home from now on.
Time to start making some Christmas memories in our home!

Mr. A and I just returned from a fabulous trip to California!
It was amazing.
(Like can we move there amazing.)

Relaxing, beautiful, great food, family and friends.
As well as a Florida State WIN!
Hello National Champions!

Coming home, we had a little one waiting up for us.
No sooner were we through the door, then he was in our arms.
Oh we missed these little fellows!
I glanced at Nolen and noticed a few tears...

M: Buddy are you crying?
N: I didn't mean to Mommy (totally unaware of why he was crying, 
not realizing that you can cry tears of joy!)

That boy has a heart of gold.

(We even managed to find Ryan at the game!)
