Triple the fun holidays!

We are officially a family that can all say "ho, ho, ho", open our own presents and take down (crash) a tree as fast as mama can put it up. This made for a very busy and fun holiday season. We got the tree up shortly after thanksgiving and it was fun sharing this adventure with the boys

"Helping" get the tree up

and in the time it takes mom to open the cupboard with the lights...take it back down. 

 We made our first salt dough ornaments and hung them by our "Christmas in the NICU" hats and I marveled at how their little hands are now as big as their hats were then. They've grown so much!

We got to go to the Macy's 8th floor fun and meet Santa with our dear friends and fellow lunatics, Auntie Rachael and company.
In awe of the elves

and really struggling to not go up on those stages! 

Upon entry Oscar ran right up to Santa's lap, Mylo shook his hand took a step back and hopped up next to Santa and Victor hugged the tree in the corner, but was more than happy to sit on Santa's lap so long as he could pull that beard! 
 The the official celebration began, first on Marty's side of the family at Great Grandma Helen's and then Grandma Monica and Grandpa Norms's....

Santa came in the morning and after all the new presents from the night before they hardly noticed the bikes that he delivered!

A little fun at home with just mom and dad and a couple of days of r&r before we took off for Grandma Pat and Grandpa Roger's.

Happy new year to you all! We're pretty excited to see what 2014 will bring!
