The past few months

I'm seriously slacking on blogging, and after my last post about my cruise (in October) the rest of the year has flown by way too fast!!

I had been looking forward to Halloween since I decided on our costumes this summer.  A tribute to Toy Story. 

 The best part was when Cooper found a little girl dressed up at Jessie & held hands with her for the rest of the neighborhood.  When he first spotted her, he yelled out "Jessie, wait for me!"  

November flew by and we made a major change.  After having the most amazing nanny, Erica, with us for a year, the boys made the change to daycare.  They cried for the first 4 days, and now only occasionally.

In December we experienced a great Christmas program where Cooper danced, sang and had the time of his life...and Carter stood in the front, maintained a disgusted look on his face, and refused to move for all 4 songs.  It was great.

We are enjoying our Christmas break, doing little excursions and Eric is working on his Capstone Exam.  I was most excited that Santa brought me 12 gauge Mossberg 500 for Christmas.  We went to the range yesterday so I could get comfortable with it, and I was very impressed with the result.

I told Eric I should post this target on the front door as a warning :o)  It was a SO much fun, and I told Eric that I need a gun bag and to learn to clean everything so shooting can be my next hobby!

It has been a relaxing week with the hubby & the kids and we look forward to what the next year brings!

Look at you shooting! So cool that you hit your mark in a big way!

The difference between the twins completely cracks me up!


Loved the Halloween shots. I got a 22 rifle for Christmas and can't wait to get out and shoot it. I am fortunate that I have been keeping up with you somewhat on Facebook. It looks as if you guys had a wonderful Christmas. Happy New Year to you all!
