It’s Turkey Day!

It was our second time hosting Thanksgiving, and we seem to be hitting our stride. We were so prepared that our kitchen sink decided to clog Wednesday night just to keep things interesting (it was fixed Friday). Nevertheless, everyone enjoyed some quality time and good food around the table. Until next year! And to kick-off…

Getting Santa in Early

We conquered another Santa visit, and like last year, O was not the biggest fan. We had a long wait as the staff didn’t show up until 50 minutes AFTER the booth opened and had technical difficulties. But the boys were a trooper and got to bond a bit more with Santa than in years…

Go Go, Halloween!

While we all had a great time last year, O was an even more willing participant in the fun of Halloween. With two school parades (one of which went better than the other), a block party and 90 minutes of trick-or-sprinting, it was quite a day!

Entering Two at Disney

Turning two at Disney World certainly can be a dream come true, and we think it was for Owen. He got to interact with a ton of characters, eat yummy treats and was even surprised with a stuffed Stormtrooper after he was sad to see them leave during lunch. Colin got a birthday treat as…

Earning Our Weight in Candy

We were very lucky to head back to Disney for another Halloween party evening. This year, we were a bit more candy-focused and managed to trick or treat our way into at least 10 pounds of sugary goodness. The rides and treats were fun, too, and we even caught up with Mickey in his costume!

The Most Magical of Kingdoms

Our second day at Disney was full of fun at the Magic Kingdom. We met more characters, went on a ton of rides and even snuck in a nap (or a trip to the pool) midday. It was our second park day in a row, so we were definitely ready for bed that night!

Back to Disney!

We apparently didn’t learn our lesson of how tiring Disney could be, and headed back to visit Mr. Mickey Mouse and friends for a long weekend. Owen’s obsessed with Mickey and friends, so it was a perfect time to let him meet his idols in person. He did so on day one with a trip…

Double Party Day!

October is a special month for many reasons, especially with O and C’s birthdays on the calendar. We celebrated with both friends and family to mark the special days! Colin’s Ninja Warrior friend party was a huge hit, while we were spoiled following by having family come to the house to honor both boys.

Action-Packed Weekend

Some weekends are more packed than others. With fall in full swing, we were ambitious one weekend to fit in a local fair, a campfire about “bats and blood suckers” and Disney on Ice. Here are the highlights!
