Frosty the Snowman in Ice!

We are starting the holiday season off with a bang. Last Friday Robert took the day off and we dropped Brady off with Grandma. We took Ethan to see Frosty the Snowman in Ice! at the Gaylord. These people are true artist. The amount of time and patience these things take and while freezing is crazy. But, Ethan had a great time spending some alone time with us and taking everything in.

Excited with Daddy!

Mastering the slide, he was a little timid at first

Soon we could not get him to leave

Dad had fun too

Mommy, it's so cold!

And just because he's cute

Chuga Chuga Choo Choo

After 11 months of Ethan asking, "can we get the train down?", "is the train still in the attic?", "when is it time to get the train down?" and a week of, "Can we put the tree up in the playroom?", I gave in. We bought a small tree for the playroom last week on sale at Target. He is in charge of decorating it. He can put whatever he wants on there....as soon as the rest of the Christmas stuff comes down from the attic.

Mommy, it is so beautiful!
Sitting in my lap to admire his tree.

After we got the tree up, he decided it was time for Dad to help put the train together. A little frustration was worth the excitement on this kid's face.

This girl had a great birthday weekend mixed in there too. Robert came home with wine and cupcakes on Friday afternoon. We went to walk the already busy mall yesterday afternoon to be followed by dinner at Posado's with Patrick and Tatum. Ethan practiced a little driving on the way home from the mall. Today, we had lunch with my family and Grandpa Flynn and Uncle Mike came over for dinner and to play. I didn't bother Grandpa for pictures this time since he just got back from down under and a little jet lagged. 

Sweet boy not complaining about walking around the mall.

Love these three guys!

A great weekend in the books.

Drive-in Movie Day

Brrr, it is cold outside. It has been 4 days and I am more than over it already.

Today, we had a drive-in movie play date at our friend, Nate's, house. We had a little car wash setup for them before starting the feature film, Cars. They had a blast pretending to wash cars and actually washing some of the toy cars in buckets.

Nate had just as much fun washing the floor.

We then started the movie in our cars with some popcorn. Lacie was awesome to think of getting some Cars themed cups to have their popcorn in.

The boys had a great play date. Brady and Reese had a great time too. I didn't catch him smiling. But, he thought it was hilarious when Reese was trying to smother and hug him. They were pretty adorable.
