Christmas has come and it was a wonderful time for the kids. The boys woke up to find a few gifts and presents for Ashlyn from Santa, but there was not a thing for them from Santa. We had church at 9 am so we got ready and the boys waited oh so patiently to open the few gifts from mom and dad. They got the goods underwear, socks, and a few movies. Yep we are some AWESOME parents! Ashlyn got a push car from us and new boots, a furReal puppy, and Figit from Santa. So off to church we went and Teagan figured since they had already gotten gifts that Santa didn't need to leave them any. Well when church was over we had them open their stockings and what did we find but a treasure hunt for each boy to follow. Teagan and Rayle really loved it and we excited about their Christmas gifts from Santa. It was fun and and wonderful day spent with our family.
I took more pictures on my camera will have to up load them later.

Yesterday we went to BassPro, but the wait to see Santa was over 3 hours. Brian and I were going on a date and it didn't include waiting for Santa with the kids. So when we picked them up from grandma's we headed over again. Today the wait was a little reasonable hour and half. We rode the carousel and then headed to a few other stores around the area. When we got back to BassPro I headed to the line to wait with the kids and they did well except Ashlyn because I don't think she slept very well, was a GROUCH!!! The kids loved seeing Santa and writing a letter for him. Also they added a snowball fight area where the boys had a blast. BassPro really is a wonderful place for the kids, they have slot car racing, remote control trucks, shooting areas, Santa letters, a craft in the evening, carousel, and snowball area. Lots of fun things and everything is FREE! Kids loved it.

I totally want to break out in Cyndi Lauper's Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. Here in AZ it was cold this morning and I thought it would be perfect for Ashlyn to wear some tights to church. I bought them at Children's Place and she really has not had a chance to wear them yet. They are almost too small for her now. She looked so cute as I did her hair in a side ponytail. However after church she was running around and fell so now the tights have two holes in them. I am going to try and make another pair using the bottoms and some women's socks. Should be fun if they work out.

Today the boys had a half day at school. Last week I said we could go to the Dinosaur Museum but we never made it. Today we made it happen. The kids had so much fun! This was the first time for Ashlyn and she was not too sure about those dinosaurs when we first got there. By the end she was running around like crazy! Here are some pictures of our outing.

Yesterday, Rayle had the opportunity to go to his best friends birthday party. It's was a fun event, bowling at Brunswick. Rayle has never gone bowling, so this was a new experience. I was glad that he had so much fun, and enjoyed his evening. The pictures were not great, because he does sit still so I got a little video. It was a nice evening out for the both of us.

Yeah today is Friday, and after school a start to a WHOLE week off. To finish out spirit week, today is school spirit, wear you blues and reds to show your love for Noah Webster Basic School! Today is also the Thanksgiving party, where they get to sample PIE!!! I told Teagan and Rayle that they couldn't have any, but I am pretty sure they aren't going to listen. Yesterday I made a popcorn turkey so they could have that in class too. The office staff thought they were pretty cool. Happy Friday everyone!!!

Today we weren't really feeling all filled with spirit, so I let them slum it up. J/K today was pajamas day and crazy socks. I don't think Teagan did the socks, but I know Rayle put on a pair of my socks. He loves wearing different crazy socks! I tried to do their hair like it was all messed up from sleep, not sure how well it turned out though.

Today is twin day, which I know all about. J/K However I am asked often if Teagan and Rayle are twins, yes they look a lot alike (because they are brothers) but no they are not. Teagan and Rayle are twenty-five months apart. Anyways, so today at school they were suppose to dress the same as another person, instead of tracking down a classmate to play matchy matchy, I just made it easy and had Teagan and Rayle dress like twins. And I must admit, they are pretty darn handsome!!!

Today is Decades Day with the choices of 50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's. I did the 50's in the past with Teagan white tee with jeans rolled up (check back here), but I wanted to do more than that. I loved growing up in the 80's and being born in 81 I do remember the side pony tail, shirt rolled to the side, big hair, and Cyndi Lauper was really my all time FAV!!! With boys though I think its hard to come up with ideas. Girls 50's poodle skirt pink ladies jacket, 60's pencil skirt cool hats, 70's flowery dresses bell bottoms, 80's BIG hair t-shirt neck cut out pull to the side. With boys I was coming up blank. I decided we will do 80's overalls one strap down, anything that would make Michael Jackson jump out from his grave MC Hammer pants. (Did you sing it? I did) When I went to Goodwill, there were NO options that could work, it was sparse pickings seriously! I really didn't have time to track down apparel for school dress up. So I knew that Teagan has two pair of cords and Rayle could borrow one. I have plain white tees and so went and I got a tie-dye kit and made up some shirts. I also found some patches to go with the theme. Most importantly the boys loved them.
