Today’s post is just an update. As usual, the holidays have been a blur of good food, parties, and fun. We hosted Thanksgiving at our house and my aunt and uncle from California decided to join in on the festivities. They don’t have kids themselves and I think between the five toddlers present, we gave them a healthy dose of “kid crazies” for awhile. It was tons of fun and as always, I was so glad to have seen them!

The following weekend, we took the kids to our local moms of multiples “Milk and Cookies with Santa” event. I love attending these multiples events because everyone has at least 2 kids but more often 3-4. No one googles at us and bombards us with questions and everyone’s kids are roaming around sitting on strangers laps and helping themselves to cookies. It is especially great that when Mia followed Santa into the bathroom, no uptight parents were wondering “where is that child’s parents?” We keep exposing the kids to Santa in hopes of getting a decent pic but so far, the kids will only shake his hand (and follow him into the bathroom).
Then, we hosted our “Southern Family Christmas Party” this past Sunday. My mom comes from a family of 9 siblings, most of whom live up North. But, there are quite a few cousins that have ended up in this area so we all get together for the holidays. The moment to remember was when my brother Nick set off his rocket/parachute in the “park” across from our house. It ended up in a neighbors tree and the sweet guy spent 20 min. getting it down.
We hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season as much as we are. Looking forward to more adventures to come…
